Sure looks sweet. Are you after a pair of running boards?

I have a pair of solid running boards from an F2/F3. Only issue is that the sides are beat up and will need to be straightened. The step area is solid as a rock and unaffected.

Hi Ilya, not after running boards. I am gonna patch what I got.Josh pointed out, my running boards are squared off at the ends and if it ever had rear fenders the boards would wrap around them? Hmmm...now I wonder if my truck ever had a box on it? Interesting...

Just caught this, one patch was a front end and the other was a rear.

Yes, they would have a curve at the end to mate with the fender.

Ok well mine are squared off at the rear fender, so would that mean that they are squared because it had a flat bed on it originally?

Hey Jeff and Nicolle, looks like your making great progress... while the bed isn't attached is the time to get the dent out of the bulkhead of the bed before it puts a dent into the cab too... and it's easier then when it's mounted (I have to pull mine back, not as much as you, but i'll need to use a come-a-long to pull mine)...

Hmm...a come along is a good idea! I was going to take the bed apart completely and work on one panel at a time. It needs some time spent on it!

I am weak in knowing the differences, but this is what mine are. Mine bolt to the frame along the extra sheet metal. I didn't know that they weren't all basically the same. I like mine because I would think they would keep more crap from being thrown up into the nooks and crannies of the cab floor.

No one has an idea as to why Ford initially designed the running board to have the extra metal flange. It's certain that it was removed in later production, likely around 1950, as a cost saving move.

Either design will fit just fine.

Upon closer inspection, I can see where the ends of the running boards were cut, re-welded, and brazed. Probably out on the farm it came from.
I have learned more today than I expected to, just from a little time slapping on some sheetmetal! Well I stayed home today to play in the garage! So this was a good day so far! Back out I go!
