Welcome to the forum. Great truck.
Maybe the Truck Shop has one
Or Aspen Truck Parts in Arizona.

Re: new truck, new life

Welcome, glad to see another member in Washington! That's a great looking truck. Care to tell us any more about it? The title of your thread makes it sound like there are more changes than just the truck, so congratulations on whatever else that entails. I have noticed myself that good life changes and cool trucks seem to go hand in hand.

Nice looking truck! As far as the hood brace, never seen it before. Seens lots of 67-72's and have owned two 72's. Thinking it was added by someone. The trucks typically have some foam padding in-between the front to back braces and hood skin. Nothing else.
