Sheet Metal Question

Looked in search box and did not find anything, so I figured I'd ask:

I have a '96 Bronco w/ the 351. Seems like alot of replacement sheetmetal and patch panels are availible

I need a patch panel for an area BELOW the tailgate. Odd, the bed floor is intact, and the tailgate is intact.
I have this open rotted area that seems to drop away 90 degrees (vertical) from the bed floor
In fact its so rotted I cant even be sure whats supposed to be there

Maybe in my search I am not calling it by the correct name so I am not finding it

Any leads would help, not sure if as a noob I can post a pic, but if I can I will

Hey red, instructions for posting pics can be found here

LMC and Bronco Graveyard both have a good selection of panels..pic would definitely be helpful.

I believe the part you are referrencing is the rear cross sill. I didn't see them listed in LMC. Another forum suggested purchasing one for a fleetside F-150 of the same year and making it work. Some modification may be required but the idea seems logical.

Factory (OEM/NOS) pieces are long gone. I have not seen this part reproduced by anyone. It's basically a fix-it-yourself or find a good donor.

Photobucket Album ....and a crap load of pictures....

I have to fabricate mine for my 91, a piece of box tube and some 10 gauge would fix it right up.
