My battery tray was rotted out by the years of battery acid so I pulled it out and replaced it.

Unfortunately I noticed the section underneath the tray was heavily rotted as well. This is where the frame meets the body on a bushing. Looks like the frame could push through any minute.

This looks almost like it's just a bolt on piece. Anyone know what it is called and how bad it is to replace? Anyone have one for sale?

Thanks a lot,

That would be a core support. I think newmexguy had one listed a while back?

The only other option is to cut out the rot and rebuild the current core support. It may not look factory, but accurate measurements, some scrap iron, and a welder will get it serviceable in short order.

Thank you for the responses guys!

I didn't realize the can of worms. Haha, I guess it comes with the territory.

I had originally only seen this part:

And it looked like it just bolted up to the core support, but it seems both that and the core support are quite rusted.

I agree welding up my current one may be the best option here, the rest of it seems servicable, and I can only imagine shipping on an item that large.
