that used to be your radiator support! and it is, was structural... I would try to replace that asap! (if its a daily driver) might check with aftermarket for a replacement (call a local body shop and ask who they use)
if you want more of a bulge in the fender, get 4wd fenders, they mount up the same etc.. The (a/m fenders) fit & finish will not be the same, read all the small print etc Might check with a local body shop to see where they buy their a/m parts, then you can see before you buy...
This bumper was bolted on extremely tight. I had to go to Sears and get another 1/2 inch drive ratchet, and another 18mm socket. The first three bolts took a huge effort, the third one I cut away with a Dremel.
