Online Purchasing? Front Bed Sill

When I was searching googs for the 'Front Sill' of my 8' bed, I came across what seemed to be the same webpage at different sites with different prices for Ford OEM parts. What are some trusted sights to order from? I've never had a problem with Rock Auto but the part I need they don't carry.

Before you order it, spend some time under your truck with a pick hammer.

If the front sill is rusted, the others are too.

Pound the pick end on the bed floor too, to evaluate its integrity.

There’s a reason the aftermarket guys sell complete kits for bed crossmember repair.

Actually they don't sell a complete kit. That's the problem. Only the "Cross Members" come in the kit. Gotta buy the "Sills" Front and Rear elsewhere.

Thanks Just Strokin I was wondering which sites were legit.

I just scrapped a bed with no floor left and unrepairable bed sides and outer wheel wells. Literally couldn’t find any solid metal to weld to. Front and rear sills were ok, so I assumed you meant the support rails.

Thanks finn....The previous owner lived in Boston and had a camper on the back at some point. The front sill is like rusty paper it so thin. The bed lines are sunken below the cabs. Only looks like the rear sill is still ok. The bed and everything else look fine. Just those cross members are rotted. Having a hard time finding the front sill too. I have to call back AutoNation in a few days while they track one down for me. Cross members are Dorman and should be here tuesday.
