Best place to get a bed?

My dad side-swiped a fire hydrant post today with my OBS and put a 4' crease down the passenger side of the bed and destroyed the wheel well. The pick-n-pulls here in norcal don't get a lot of these trucks in them and when they do they are thrashed. Anyone have any suggestions on where to start looking? Obviously the shipping on one would be ridiculous so anything out of state is out of the question. Thanks for any suggestions.

-Tim

My dad got a quote for $1500 just for the bedside not to mention the body work and paint. I figured I could pick up an Oxford white bed for 5-600 bucks.
