Klutzy move cracks jamb

When atteempting to install a Reliabilt exterior door, I had it in the opening for the dry fit. Stupidly, both of us when on the same (and wrong) side of the door when it fell. The lock side jamb was severely cracked, as well as the door stop.

Anyone know if Reliabilt will send replacements? I can't return it, as I bought it too long ago and do not have the receipt.

Or is it easier to rebuild the jamb and stop with stock lumber?
Lowe's has replacement jambs, but they are rabbited at the top. My jambs has butt joints.

It will be easier and cheaper to replace the broken/cracked jamb with whatever Lowe's has. The type of joints on top of the jamb makes no difference,
