frame cross member source
when i had my bed off last week to do the spring hangers, i found that the three frame cross members in this area had a fair amount of rust. 2 i think are salvagable with a little wire brushing and a por 15 treatment, but, the center one is pretty ugly and it helps carry the fuel tank. don't need it snapping.
i checked feebay but couldn't find any. please tell me i don't need to go to ford and pay 300 bucks for one, or whatever it is they get.
