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.
