Personally, with that much collision damage I'd find a cheap bed and then put new side on the replacement. That way you don't have realign the side. It appears that the rear is warped in quite a bit and the bottom is pushed in as well.

If the other said has any rot(which it probably does), I would not waste my time doing ONE side, just do them BOTH.

You are in the rust belt, so finding a rust free bed is not going to happen unless it came from the south. And those area 800-1500 depending on how much work they need

While it may be a ways away, this one is clean and cheap enough to maybe make having it shipped worth it. Try uShip for a bid on shipping. BTW the item didn't sell the first time.

ETA sorry it looks like yours is a long bed.
