Can't help you on the parts. But. Are you sure it's worth putting money into the truck? By how rusted it is. Bed supports have to be gone. Along with shackle mounts. I'm interested in what your rockers look like. Either way. obviously you live in the rust belt. Nothin you an do about it but man. That looks bad.

Exhaust shields are the least of your problems.

Walker muffler/exhaust sells a heat shield for the factory muffler as well as the hanger for the exhaust. The hanger may be a bit different in appearence, but works exactly the same. the shield is held on by band clamps that come with it from Walker.

As far as the piece on the rear cross, does the hose go to your rear differential? I'm trying to figure out the big tube part. I don't have that on my 98. I have an ABS switch in that place. It has wires and not a hose. There were some Fords that had a filter for the rear differential that had a hose going to the middle on one tube, which had a vent for the rear diff. Is that what you are looking for?

The black cylinder is a charcoal canister, it vents your gas tank and is pretty non-essential. akdoggie the reason you might not know about the black canister is because you have 2 rectangular canisters instead. It's a different setup but performs the same function. I switched my canister from the rectangular type to the cylinder type.

Smurf: As far as the canister goes if you can live without it it's not a structural component, however if you can't you should call a junk yard down south that's where i got mine (you-pull-it in savannah GA has a large selection but idk if they'd pull something for you). The rectangular canister and cylindrical one are interchangeable without getting a code (again, i did this myself with no code) but you'll have to take note of what does what line wise to get it right.
The heat shield i made out of a stainless steel grill lid I have at the house, it has the same curve to it so i just cut it to length and drilled holes. This heat shield is also completely useless (I wonder why i made one really) it just keeps the heat from the forward crossmember which has nothing over or in it in my 97.
The exhaust hanger I also had to make, i used 2" wide channel iron and welded 1/2" steel rod to it with washers welded on for stops. I used stainless cotter keys and washers as retainers for the hangers. Since I have an aftermarket exhaust i also had to cut/bend/weld the channel iron to make it meet the hangers properly, since you have an original one you might be able to get away with a straight piece.
Bottom line: None of these parts are available after-market even though they should be. You can make most of these parts but the only one that's a true functioning part is the exhaust hanger. If i did it again i'd do away with the heat shield entirely. Check my thread and you'll see that there's nothing above it, it's probably just there to satisfy some building code. Good luck
