Can't find Bracket for side steps

I have a 2003 F150 with side steps on them. I have been looking like crazy to find a part and can't find anything. A piece of paper came off with the following numbers on there:

DZ# - AF150CREWL-CB
ENG# - 2L3J 16451 CB
Left/Izuierda
Assembled on
March 17,2003
2287

I honestly have no idea what the DZ or ENG numbers even are and i have typed them in google and nothing ever shows up. We already tried to JB weld it and that help for a couple months and then broke in half again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

or buy something like this... put all new brackets on......... then drill holes for your step to fit.

LKQ used car parts, either call them or try and search their site. If you call them, they can find the exact parts you need nationwide and ship straight to your front door.

It crapped out because it is ROTTEN and nothing left to weld.. You need to get a newer model bracket and see if you can make it fit, or weld up a new one with plate / angle iron.......... ford390 link is to a 2013 model not 2003 ... I think that might be an options... take your bracket to FORD and measure up against one in stock.

Yeah it's weird, but the engineering number the OP posted comes up as a 2013 part.

its 20 years old and ROTTEN........ If you want to weld one up, just get some plate and possible angle iron and make one.. Easy job.
