YRM sells some repair parts, but new ones are available (usually) and not crazy money.

Mike at ECR will tell me it is impossible , but you can swap in a new pair easily in a day.

BTW usually they are referred to as T-pieces so that might help with searching.

Best to buy the whole part and swap than to repair. Trust me.

Thanks the truck has a little Bulkhead repairs needed too so I would do them at the same time. Can the T-pieces be replaced with the body still on the truck or would I need to brake the whole body down to do it?

You can get them in with the body still on. Make sure to order the brackets with the two bolts that holds it to the bulkhead foot. I have only gotten one of those out in one piece.

$1000 each at the dealer? They are $300 each in the UK. I am sure someone can supply them for less than $1000 each.

I would agree, but if you go through the trouble of replacing I would certainly have them galvanised. Do it right the first time. I don't think I have seen many of these fixed correctly and nicely when repaired in situ. Looking good on the surface means nothing, kinda like a bulkhead.

Just to be clear, this install would involve Bolts in the front and then drilling out the welds in the rear? If I buy this truck this would be my first big job on it and I just would want to know what I would be getting into. The bulkhead and rear doors will need a little love to.

It's not as easy as you think. To do it right you'll want to raise the roof...Also remove the front wheel arch "dogleg", unbolt the middle doors and the seat box/middle bulkhead.
The T-piece is one big weldment and is bolted and riveted in place. Bolts up front, in the middle and at the rear. Rivets thru the tub sides.
Undo all the bolts and rivets. push the front downward. This will kick the back up and forward so you'll need to pull the tub outward to free the rear end. It'll makesense when you get to it.
