Need a new oil pan

My oil pan is starting to rust pretty good. My friends truck is already rotted through. Anyone know where I can get a better aftermarket one? Maybe something with better or thicker steel. 2003 F250 7.3L 4X4

well i have a rusty and crusty oil pan too and i think most 7.3's in salt country are rusty too. Im going to sand blast my pan in place and repair all leaks (holes) and coat the whole pan with POR-15... which is AMAZING stuff!! They dont make a thicker oil pan, a factory one is fine, but it just needs to be coated with something better than factory engine paint... like the POR-15 i'm going to use. Not to mention the oil pan job is a pain in the a**, you got to pull the motor and flip it up side down to do it right...

hope you can fix it as is - otherwise the proper way to fix it is to pull the motor and flip it.
