Im not sure, but if my memory is correct, that metal section is rather large... If you cant replace it easily, I would buy some sheet metal, snip it to size with some tin snips, bend it to look normal, and either weld or use some sheet metal screws to attach it back onto the metal frame around there.
Heres a picture of how its supposed to look in there if you need it.

this one. don't know what year yours is but maybe you can find a part.

Can't really tell, did he cut up the dash too or just the brackets? That could reguire some metal work or maybe maybe a new dash piece.
I can't remember the thread but in the for sale section there was a guy parting out a 97 wrangler i think it was. Maybe you could still score a replacement at a decent price.

TJ Stereo Help Please
Hey guys, I was wondering if you all could give me some insight on what you would do with this problem I have. It seems that the PO put aftermarket speakers in the dash, but they just laid 6x9s in there and cut my mounting brackets instead of doing it the right way. I would just leave it but the speakers are pointing towards the doors and basically useless right now. How would you mount up new 5.25 inch speakers properly? So I'm open to suggestions.
Here's some pictures of the genius's handywork.
