Default Spare Tire Support Bracket

1997 F-150/ 3dr, extended cab, 5.4 L V8, 4WD,Auto, 260k miles.

My spare tire just dropped from the support bracket area under the truck. I looked underneath and saw it was pretty corroded.

Is there an aftermarket replacement?

Anyone else have this experience?

Are you talking about the spare tire hoist assembly itself or where it connects to the frame?

Where the tire was attached to the bottom of the bed is gone. Whatever held it up is no longer there. I have never used the spare in all the years I had the truck.
