You can buy the diesel radiator support from Ford, just looked it up- $782.85.

National Parts Depot or Bronco Graveyard are other places to get body parts. I was being cheap and bought an aftermarket tailgate for my truck and it is a POS. You can push down in the middle of it and bow it. My friend who does autobody work said you can get different grades of aftermarket parts(thickness), just depends on your budget. I now wish I would have gotten a better one or OEM one. Fenders and hoods may be different, but just my experience with an aftermarket tailgate.

i would look at your local auto body supply store/shop. ive found that their prices are normally about the same at lmc and no shipping to pay. and yes there are different grades on all body parts the economy ones might need a little tweeking or shimming to get them to fit perfect and the oem match ones are gauranteed to fit right with no tweeking or shimming needed

It is listed on fordparts.com. Thats what I was going off of. Maybe the website isn't up to date?
