Unhappy time to build a new rig

well yesterday i unloaded my 78 f150 from my silverlake trip on the 19th and found this in doing so


i figure it broke up at the dunes and i just didn't notice it.
i'm not too sad, i really bought the truck for the front axle only so no big deal i guess.

That's so easy to fix, even a caveman could fix it.
