Cost of fender replacement

A windstorm blew a large branch down and it took out my passenger side front fender.
I called to file a comprehensive claim and my deductable is $1000.
Anyone have an idea how much a new fender with paint will cost? 99 f350
I cannot make it to the shop till later this week for the actual price so I am wondering if it was even worth filling the claim. No real harm, it is a comp claim that does not hurt my insurance cost as it was a no fault incident. Just a big pain in the but. Truck is still real clean so I probably will fix it.

Also i noticed it appears the fender is galvanized? Some paint chipped off and it looks like galvanized metal. If so are factory fenders in like material still available?

I doubt Ford still has them but if they do, count on them being stupid expensive. You can find one in a junkyard and paint it to match. Aftermarket has plenty of them so no real worries there as I doubt your insurance company will spring for am OEM crash part from Ford

@Mike Gs
I checked with a friend of mine who owns a body shop (insert plug for Rick's Custom Auto, Lake City, SC )
He said a CAPA certified fender (which is OEM quality) for a '99 F-350 lists for $225 so you could buy it for around $200. That's a primed fender, ready to prep, paint, and install which is, of course, extra.

Its going to be $300 plus to paint match the fender on a nearly 20 year old truck. I would buy a replacement fender and have someone paint it. then just install yourself. You may be able to get a fender and paint for under 1000 but it will be close.

I don't think it will save much compared to the deductible though. Have you called to ask what the difference is to have just a $500 deductible? It didn't save me much at all in premiums so I went with that. It helped when a lady hit me and I was found not at fault but still had to pay the deductible until the investigation was done.

The oem fenders are still available from Ford. $125 - I believe because they are used until 07.
The body shop quoted $1100 to r and r fender, paint, blending into the door, new door molding and badges.
Gecko insurance quoted $1017 so I got a whopping $17 check. They quoted using a junkyard fender for $85 plus 25% so is was like $107 which is absolutely ridiculous considering the oem is $125 my cost and my body shop quoted $189 with mark up, pretty reasonable. Imagine trying to find a good junkyard fender, in the northeast, and being able to remove it without damage, then repair and paint. To save $19 off new. I think the appraiser was sniffing glue. The shop has done a few of my vehicles and they do excellent paint work. I am going to get it fixed as I am going through the truck. Mechanical work is nearly done and I have the cab corners still to do.

Would have never guessed that one and for $125 as well. Floor mats for mine cost more that that. Good find and good to know. Hope I never need one but...
Good luck on your repairs, sir
