6' bed, dually- price

I'm thinking of swapping out my bed for a dually bed. Why, you might ask... I want to lift the truck and then throw some big meats out back, kind of that F650 look in a 250 version. I think it'd be a little different and add some "mass" too the truck.
-What would a new bed run
-does it come with a bumper
-can i order by color, or is it best to go look at the pick-and-pull
thanks in advance!

I would try finding a used one first. I can imagine a new one would have a crazy price.

You may be able to adapt the fenders off of a long bed to yours. You will just have to cut a fuel door in the front of the driver side fender.

That's what I would recomend. Anyplace that installs utility/flat beds etc usually have beds. I know we sold our beds from our work trucks to the place tat installs the flat beds for 200 bucks!! Should be able to get a good deal.

Truck body shops are definitely the spot. A few years ago, I think they were going for something like $800 around here. I'm sure that number has gone up, but at least it gives you an idea.

I live in South Jersey. The real, south jersey. 10 minutes from the beach, 15 from atlantic city, 35 minutes from the end of the state, south jersey haha I've passed a place by Atco and they have beds galore. I might have to stop by and see what they say

A short dually bed will be like finding a needle in a haystack, and the only colors ford makes in the short bed dually is black and white, that might help narrow down the search.

Send a message via AIM to etalian
well he's got a black truck so that should help.

06 - i think you have a great idea there, if i could suggest, i would put some larger fenders on the front so that it won't look funny. Good luck and definitely post some pics when you get this all done.
