Last two feet of bed area especially over near rear wheel wheel and gas box area is rotted… anyone know what year truck bed ribbing matches up since I can’t find any replacement bed metal specific to 77 g-10/20! Any pointers would be awesome!!!
If any donor vans out there have that area and someone is willing to part ways… please let me know!

Hope someone can come thru for you. Can definitely relate to parts searches. ( own a 1974 G10 )

I always thought the van cargo floor and the same year pickup bed floor was the same... maybe not? Find a squarebody pickup in a parking lot and bust out the measuring tape maybe?

Wow I just took a peak on line, if this is true it would make a great patch panel. I will hunt one down.

Yup... try this:

GM was great at making things sorta "universal" across many vehicles. I'd be surprised if the ribbing doesn't match up.
