Replacement Bedside

Does anyone know of any vendors selling replacement bedsides? Dont ask why.

I am talking about the sheet metal, the only thing I am finding is the replacement fiberglass for the DRW rears.

I am finding the actual bedside from Ford direct, but for a long bed I am looking at $800+. Maybe I could get some knockoff for cheap!!

Try to local truck body company. They take off OEM beds and install utility bodies. They may have some around cheap just to get rid of it.

I'll warn you, in my experience.....Aftermarket body panels don't fit worth a darn. They will fit, but usually only after an afternoon of struggling with it. The reason factory parts are so expensive is because they bolt up in a minute and require almost no struggle. Hope this helps you w/ your decision.

try to find a truck body shop that takes off the beds to put on flatbeds or utility bodys. alot of the time guys don't want the beds back that are new, and sometimes guys get the utility bodys when one side gets smashed up.

i know i drive by a place all the time near here that sells them.

if you look around you might be able to fine one that doesn't even need to be painted!

Yeah, someone was suggesting looking in 'Heavy Equipment Trader' magazine for a full new bed. What sucks is I have the bed linex'd, and I dont want to have to redo that.

I know what you mean about the aftermarket parts not fitting up worth a crap though. Plus drilling the spot welds, realigning the flanges, and welding sheet metal, I should leave that to the professionals.

Thanks for the info!!
