Wrecked the truck guys...need some help

I have finally joined the ranks of having the 'accident mod'. I was pulling into work and I collided with an Infiniti. Sorry, I DON'T have pics because my cable to transfer the pics to my computer is shot. Plus its pretty depressing to look at it. I had just put my black headlights and corners on and they are both pretty much done with.

Let's get to the damage. It was to the left front corner, but everything seems to be pushed over to the passenger side up front. The hood is out of alignment (the gaps between the hood and fender are all wacked). My left corner light is broken along with all the mounting points behind it. The left headlight is broken and pushed over towards the grill so I expect everything behind it is broke. The lower valence and chrome bumper are trashed. My wheel was turned when we hit, so the left wheel is toed out towards the left (like I was turning left) while the right tire is still straight. My steering wheel is sideways when the truck is going straight. There may be some other alignment issues too.

My questions are: has anyone experienced any of these type of damages before and what kind of cost/time is needed to fix this? Also, where could I re-order the chrome upper valence and the black Edge lower valence? We are probably going to have the body shop fix all the internals and suspension and I'll be replacing the cosmetic parts myself.

I'll get some pics up if I can get my cable to work. Much appreciated guys.

Man that sucks. Check certifit.com, for all my front-end replacement parts(header panel, grille, chrome bumper and valance) the total was only 200 and there OEM quality. They have all the lights and everything you need too. It's really easy to replace all those parts, I just did that last month.
