New 95 owner, right front fender dented

I just bought a 95 yesterday. The body on it is in pretty good shape with 2 exceptions.

The very front of the fender on the passenger side is pushed back. The prior owner tried to bondo and paint over it without a lot of success. Looking online it seems that I can pick up fenders to replace it, but looking at the fender on my Jeep it seems that the very front section that is bent/rusted can be removed without having to replace the entire fender.

Can someone verify if I must change out the entire fender, or do I need to switch out just the front section that is bent?

This looks to be my first weekend project coming up.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

On my 95 the front fender is two pieces but I have yet to find the small piece on the front alone, really have not looked though either.

Its not 2 peices if u take off the fender 7 look closely it is one at the front of the frnde is not from 2 peices but it self folded 2 meet & spot welded. So u can only get it as a whole fender. I had to replace mine.

You can cut the spots out and replace the nose if you can find one off another fender. Even rusty fenders don't rust on that front part.....try craigslist
