2013 bed on 2001 HELP!

Apologize in advance for the long post

Had my 01 bed vandalized and my 08 tailgate stolen and picked up brand new bed with tailgate with rear bumper that came off a truck with 8 miles for $1200


Anyone know what the best route is to make the front factory 01 fenders and a 2013 bed match???

The same type of fender flares for each year orrrr is there some type of flare I can do up front to match the factory 2013 can't really afford a whole newer front clip so looking for the next best option

most folks avoid that bed style because of those wheel well openings

I would be looking at the aftermarket molding options

Well how do they make a bed look the same after the new clip? I couldn't pass up a perfectly straight bed for that price so I guess I'll have to make a visit to bushwacker

Tryin to look side by side on my phone (which is a pain) I believe I can buy front OE style flares and its be close or I'd have to buy extend-a-flares front and back and I'm not a huge fan of flares period

i have l;ooked at this as well, i feel like the bushwacker STREET flare would give just enough edge to resemble the factory rear lip. i know it wont be perfect, but close.

what color is your truck, i have seen a few, and the right colors are not really noticeable.

It's white and if I have flares just on the front it will have the rubber around the flair I'm curious what's the guys who did the front conversion did with their factory bed

You think I can get away with just a factory flair up front?
