Head light retaining/adjustment ring

Does any one know if the black plastic head light adjustment/retaining ring can be purchased separate from the entire head light assembly? I had a little bang em up recently and that ring was one of the casualties. Part number would be greatly appreciated..
Also, do aftermarket head lights (Truck Lites) include this ring?
Thanks folks.

There is a black plastic bucket mounted behind the headlamp, that the headlamp mounts to, then there is a chrome (or possibly black) metal retaining ring that holds the headlamp in place and gets screwed to the bucket.

The retaining ring can be bought from several different aftermarket manufacturers, either with or without "guards" in front of the lamp to reduce the chance of impact.

The bucket is more difficult to source. Mopar P/N 55078149AC (Left) and 5578148AC (Right) seem to be the part numbers for the complete headlight assembly (bucket, lamp and bezel). There are people on eBay selling aftermarket assemblies for half the price of the Mopar.

Aftermarket headlamps do not include the bucket or retaining ring.

I suspect the part I'm in need of is called the bucket. I'm inclined to make the jump to Truck Lites, but I'm afraid they don't include that part.

I went to Rock Auto, bought this -

http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/more...378&cc=1447265

It came with that ring, a new retainer bezel, and headlight assembly. I just tossed the bezel and assembly in the spare parts tote and used the ring that came with it. 48.00 beats 183.00 which is what the dealer quoted me for the entire assembly.
