Default door latch has ripped the steel on the door

when i bought my 96 1500 (ext cab with no rear doors) the hinges were already worn out so i adjusted the striker down to compensate.

yesterday with ice all over the truck i pulled the door open with 1 hand and the latch was falling inside the door, the sheet metal is ripped and the latch flops around. the door wont stay closed at all.

has anyone ever seen this before?

is there a repair kit or will i need a door shell ?

the door is not rusted , which is amazing for a Michigan truck.

any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
