I think we havea "For Sale" and a "Wanted to Buy" forums. Have U listed and checked there? Flee bay, the other appropreate places: broncos on line (must B ahundred)? Nota FSB guy but they do'em the same way:

U can use anything on the inside, just drill the holes - place/sz correctly. Back up w/bolts, lock-tite. 1/8th inch plate. Ever seen one? Might need bent some?
How bout aftr mrkt? Or do you want oem? Some are big'n funky but they do the job (expensive but durable). Good Luck w/yer search !

Hello, i am looking to buy the latch for the swing out tire carrier that mounts to the tailgate as well as the brace for the inside of the tailgate for a 78-79 bronco.
thank you.
If you can,nt find a bronco. I know the 82 Ford vans have them. They might be the same.

most the typical EB vendors have swing-a-way spare tire hanger parts. I don't think gen 2 is that different (from us) and so should suffice. Google's ur friend. BCB, Jeff's, WH, Duff, etc, etc...

May B even LMC (truck place on-line), rock auto? no probably not. U will find that owning an older vehicle is all abt prts sourcing, fab and mod to modern prts/safety/availability. Each of us hasa list of vendors (hopefully a mi long) and categorized by 'system' (some supply body prts, other engine, etc). U may want to start a desk top file. After 39 yrs (ownership) mine is pretty big ('82/'92 growth of the net). Just like my prts pile - I cant afford to throw anything away. An alt bracket heated, beat on, welded up some, redrilled becomes a PS pump bracket. 1 vendor dont godid? ask & referred to a 2nd who duz. Both names get saved~
