Does ANYONE know where/how I can get this part? Mine finally rotted out and I need a replacement. No luck anywhere online, Ford parts Giant, etc are all listing it as discontinued and unavailable for purchase. Next step is calling ford or making my own, but I'd rather not...

I thought there was thread showing one from a later year, that was not made of metal, and they repaired broken tabs with JB Weld...

but I can't find the post...:dunno:

As I recall, the 1999 (?) trays are made using plastic. Much better for the application. Check salvage yards.

Good luck.

Y'all are quick, thanks. This rusting BS is the bane of my existence. I swear, I should move to AZ.

Is that a direct swap with bolt holes lined up and all or will I need to modify a little to make it work?

I believe it was direct swap. My metal tray turned to dust. The replacement is plastic. It will probably fall apart in 100 years.

Have a great day!

Yes direct swap, ive done this in my 97 sport and a few four doors , usually had to cut the old bolts with a grinder and cutting wheel , i also like to use an impact gun and kroil or pb blaster on the new one to try and save all the tabs and hardware, this is how my last one ended up
