Replacement bed.

Where are you guys getting them and what is a fair price. Also is anyone using an 2011 or 12 bed? How do the lines match up.

They are listed on craigslist. There is a guy in Romeo, Mi that sells them brand new out of the box. For a long box you are looking at about $1400 for the box itself. For a short box you are looking at $1600. For the tailgate and bolts and trim included, my buddy got a short bed for $2000. Bumpers are not included.

Thats seems like a very fair price. Hell a tailgate can go for $400.

Yup I bought a painted 2011 bumper from him for $150. And they are all brand new. My buddy's box came in a giant cardboard encasement.

My 05 is starting to show a few bubbles of rust around the DS rear fender. It almost sounds like a better option to get a new bed. Then have it painted and be rest assured for another 7 years. Not knowing how the first owner took care of it, I guess even a little longer.

We have a local company who replaces the stock bed with a utility bed. They resell the OEM beds for $800!!

You may want to check local for a similar company.

They also sell whole quarter panels for your bed, as opposed to buying a whole bed. You can get those for around 300, but you have to know how to do body work to do it yourself. You split the old quarter panel off of the inner side of the box. You do this by breaking the spot welds around the quarter panel edges. Then rewelding it back on. I did this to my bed but I did the inner as well. Attached is a picture of what it looked like cut up and another after it was done.

The reason I have bondo on the quarter panel is because I found the QP for cheap because it was mildly damaged

Looks like you're pretty handy. That's way beyond my skill level and patience. Looks nice tho.

Agree, bodywork is where I defer to others also.

an 11 or 12 bed would be okay if you had a two tone paint job to help break up the lines. Remember, the latest superduties have a bit of a bubble fender flare. It's not a direct match.

I have seen a 03 with a 11 bed on it two-toned and I honestly didn't like it. 90% wouldn't notice it but I definitley did.

My bed is breaking thru in the fender wells. I have no idea what I'm going to do.
