Front end clips

By the time you get done with buying the clip and all the ball joints tie rod ends etc. etc. and so on to rebuild it and make it good it will cost as much or more than buying a good aftermarket crossmember..

I would suggest www.jimmeyerracing.com to source a cross member to fit that truck..those chassis are plenty strong so there is not a real need to do any boxing..

Only thing to be aware of is that the Ford pickups use a 5x51/2 bolt pattern on the wheels so there are not a lot of wheel options..

Might wish to change the rear bolt pattern so both ends match if you do this..

http://www.jimmeyerracing.com/pu5.html for the exact piece..
