LMC truck, Mac's, National Parts Depot, or donor trucks. There are other suppliers out there and I'm sure they will be posted by others.

Congrats on the new truck! You will want to check the cab supports under the front of the floor as well. Mine were only partially bad and I was able to cut them off and repair and reinstall. This will be a lot easier with the floor out. How are the cab corners? There are parts around for these trucks but sometimes you have to look. I would strongly recommend a shop manual before you go much farther. It will give you much needed info unique to you truck!

Any pics you can put up will be enjoyed.
