Beautiful Uptown Hurst, TX, on...
I have seen bracket extenders that weld on the top of the existing bracket as a replacement for broken brackets. They re about half the height of the full stock bracket with a foot to bolt them to the frame rail. Anyone have a source for this item or know of a reproduction part that is made as an extender item or whole new bracket item?
Thanks for any help!

Joe,
My brackets were broken and repaired sometime during it's life. It appears they used some type of 'L' bracket welded to the fender liner bracket and then bolted to the frame.

Joe, for those of us unfamiliar, have you got a picture of the bracket you could share? It may be a simple fabrication to make a new one and eliminate any/all rust..

Is the original a pressed sheet metal, and if so, what is the gauge? Or is that a tube/pipe in the middle?

It's formed in that shape, thicker than the fender metal but thinner than the frame. No pipe or tube in the middle.

Anyone have one intact enough (original) to use as a pattern? I can see if I can make some on the Lennox...

this is the best one I have. its 3/16 thick. Not sure if its the left or right side. 37-38 fender support




Why work on one truck when I can work on two and get half as much done.

Are left and right side different? Mirror image? Are you sure it's 3/16? That would be too thick to form on my machine, but in comparing to your tape measure in the picture, that looks more like 3/32 from here thumbs_up

Yes mirror images.and yes 3/32. I could send it to you if it would help. The other ones I have are ugly. The one flange with the washers welded on it all break off.
