Hit a deer - bodywork advice

Hello to the collective- 2020 SR5. Hit a deer out in the Methow Valley (1st deer contact in my life, luckily). Front passenger lower quarter bumper and driving light damaged and need to be replaced, that's it. The deer bounded up the hillside never to be seen again. I was very amazed at the flimsiness of the stock 4Runner bumper, to be honest. I want to get a deer-proof aftermarket bumper like a C4 or ARB. Mule Outfitters out in Preston WA (Near me) are very highly regarded but they want me to fix the bumper back to its original condition before they will install an aftermarket bumper. They are leery about any frame misalignment that 'may' have happened in the deer impact. So I'm looking at $2500 or so to restore it back to factory condition, and then another $5k for the aftermarket bumper and upgraded lights. Does that seem reasonable? Any advice from folks who have gone straight from impact damage to aftermarket bumper without needing to get it back to factory condition? Thanks in advance!!
