Rugged Ridge XHD tire carrier replacement parts?

Anyone (vendors?) know if I can get replacement parts for my Rugged Ridge XHD tire carrier? On yesterday's trail ride my wife slid sideways into a tree and smashed her driver's side tail light and and caught the spare tire pretty hard. It bent the 2-piece bracket assembly that holds the spare tire to the swing arm quite a bit. No other damage thankfully... I was surprised the hard top didn't crack as it took part of the hit as well...

Anyway, I'm afraid to just bend them back as it would just weaken it. I need the 2 pieces that I circled in the attached pic. If anyone knows how to acquire them that would be awesome.

They're not sold individually, however occasionally they will get a return in that they can scavenge parts from. It's hit or miss, but give them a call.

I contacted our Rugged Ridge rep for you and they are having their Tech Department looking into it. I'll let you know what I come up with.
