Need frame cross members: Where to buy?

As the title says...

Working on my buddy's early '99 F350 cab n chassis (165" wb, 84" c-a, 11' bed) and the frame cross members are shot. Exploring the options, would like to replace with factory style cross members, local dealer and auto body shop says no dice... perhaps someone on the .ORG knows where to get something.

Also going to check with local junk yard... waiting on phone calls back from them.

If nothing comes up, I guess we will just fab something up from channel and angle iron. We need to replace both the cross members, one about a foot behind the cab that holds the drive shaft support bearing, and the one inside of the rear spring hangers just in front of the rear axle.

Baddly rust damaged... ordered body repair panels, getting new rocker panel, cab corner, and as I get it torn apart, the cab floor is also going to need some patch panels... frame is rough, will be pulling fuel tank, and lines/wiring to allow rust removal, sanding, and painting. Not sure if we will go so far as to pull the rear end/leaf springs, but the shackles look like I would like to see them replaced...

Looking like cross members will have to be fabbed on our own... no sources so far... anyone actully bought them from somewhere?

In the same boat looking for a rear crossmember for a late 99'. It has a 9' Knapheide utility body on it. If you come up with a place that sells them or find one at a junk yard please let me know. Thank you



Just found car-part.com says they have the part, I'm going to call in am to check it out and pricing.
