Looking for new bed "LB" Dual tanks

I would like to find a used rust free, good shape bed to swap out the old bed on my 95 I just purchased. I do not care about color and just looking for one that is as rust fee as possible. I know that I may be asking for too much but it is worth a try. If I can not find one reasonably priced I will have to try to rework the bed on truck now but with fixing the rust over wheels I would have to pull the front back 2" and many small dents all over the bed's top rails. Anyone have any experience with finding beds, what is best way to find one aside from local salvage, just keep lookin, I guess.

I get them off craigslist, I got a Dually bed for a buddy and shipped it to New York for him (my other friend was headed that way so it was a trade out)

This would be better set in the classifieds or the obs section however, good luck and let us know where your located at

I have a Dually bed that's rust free I would sell btw off a 95

take a road trip to the southern states, 87-97 fx50s will work and have the same body lines(80-86 will have a different wheel well opening but body lines will match), or maybe replace it with a flat bed?

or you can get complete brand new bed sides for it, if the rest of the bed is in good shape?, just be drilling out the spot welds and epoxying or spot welding the new bed side in.

My bed seen better days

I do not believe my bed is worth the work but I will past some pics when I get bed liner out of it. I like bedliners but they trap moisture and never know what is under them if truck was not cared for or has seen the yrs of use which this has, it is a work truck, which they are made to work. It pulled sprint cars for the past many yrs and now it's mine!Thanks for info!
