Good suggestion jesilvas! Take out a good truss, use it for a pattern to make replacements.

Sometimes you may want to actually improve on the "built to a price" trusses originally installed. On one repair I found 1" x 6" rough green oak on super sale and changed my roof from flat to slightly curved to help expell rain/snow. By drilling holes with hole saw I was able to lighten weight.
