Centerline sells them. I bought one from their predecessor and had a body shop weld it in. Came out great.

I did mine as well. Purchased from Centerline, fit was fine.
Get a quality spot weld remover, as there are about a 100 of them. Need to remove battery tray and where the well comes in contact with the rear fender is a bit troublesome.
A little finesse to get the new one in as it seems that it won't fit. Once it is in, weld it up and seam seal.

The worst part was to remove the old one. I drilled the spot welds with a special drill bit I bought for that task.
