Picked up a new to me '95 Bronco EB this week, and want to get a jump start on replacing some parts, especially those that are rusted out. Can you guys help this noob identify the following rusted out part under the body (and provide a link for replacement)? The metal tube runs along the inside of the side steps and is connected with several bolts and hangers. As you can see, it is need of replacement. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, White Dragon! I think I will try the "parts wanted" add idea. I'm in VA, and it looks like that seller is not willing to ship from CA. Did a check online, and it appears factory running board brackets are unobtanium. The one that I did find is asking $500! At least it's good to know it's not super urgent, since the running boards rarely get used anyway.

Those running board braces always rust. I did just see a set on a 90s supercab in the JY in decent shape, but the boards themselves were crunched to pieces.

I had a pair that came off my 96 F250 that I gutted. The pair went with the wrecked body I sold. They were quite common on the XLT's pickups so you may find at a junk yard

After spending months hunting for a set of brackets in good condition, I finally relented and pulled the trigger on the new ones from JBG. It's a bit crazy to pay $500 them, but since I don't have the ability to fab up a set, the law of supply and demand finally won.

Thanks, all! I may resort to the $500 pair down the road, if other options don't work out. It's an otherwise clean 2 owner truck with 50k miles, so might be worth the investment.
