Parts question for center bearing

Hi all -

So I'm getting ready to replace on the center bearing on my 98 24v extended cab 8ft box 5 spd. So as I'm taking it apart, I notice that the center bearing is attached to a piece of metal shaped in a U and that is bolted to a cross member. That U shaped piece has some rust holes on the backside and I'd like to replace it. Anyone know what it is "officially" called besides "U shaped thing" and where it might be available? I'm thinking it might be a junkyard only thing but doesn't hurt to ask.

Thanks in advance.

As far as im aware, when you buy a new one that comes all as one. At least you can get them like that.

Sorry for the confusion. Not the holder that the center bearing sits in, but the bracket that the center bearing bracket attaches to. It is between the cross member and the center bearing bracket.

So looking at the diagram from moparpartsgiant, that is part #3. I have that. I'm looking for part #16.

So figured out the Mopar number, 52105268 but it doesn't look like I'll have any luck finding a new one. Will probably end up fabricating a new one. Thanks to all for the help.

ah the drop bracket thingy. look like this guy? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1994-2002-D...IAAOSw5QpcuLvp

probably would be cheaper to just make a template with the old one and have a shop bend it for you.
