Whats better, fix the cracks in the fiberglass, or new bed?
A few months ago, I backed into a tree out in the woods while wheeling the Ranger. It pushed the driver's side of the bumper into my bed which is a stepside, which is fibeglass.
Since then, the crack has propegated, and its gotten to the point where I can't open the tailgate anymore, and the pressure has cracked my tail light.
What would be less expensive, to pick up a bed off a Ranger at a junk yard, or to have somebody do fiberglass work for me and fix up the bed? And does anybody know of a place in NJ or PA where I could find a new bed for the truck, there aren't any places with Rangers around here. Stepside or styleside, doesn't matter at this point.

Try to find a place that sells pickup bodies in your area. Most often when someone gets a utility body put on their truck, they leave the pickup bed behind. It may not be the cheapest route, but you're most likely to get a bed that is in good condition.
like Zach just said the outer bed skin has nothing to do with the inner bed besides being bolted to it....see those like 6 caps on the top rail pop those off there will be torq bit bolts under there, and then there is one behind the bumper on the bottom some in the back on and on the bottom outsides...
