I have a 2001 Edge stepside, and I just bought a rollpan. Now when I went and talked to the local body shop about putting it on it was no problem to get the rollpan painted and installed, but the BIG problem was is the extra material next to where the rollpan goes. To get those removed, the edged built up to be smooth all the way down, it would be around $300, and then another $120-150 to get the rollpan painted and installed... so now im stuck in a delima... I dont really know what to do. I was curious what everyone else did in this situation or what costs you paid... Here are some pics of what I'm talking about...

Man i dont wanna sound like a Dick. but are you CRAZY! $300 to remove that, it takes 30mins!!!! i did mine with no problem.. heres what you do..
Remove the screw
get a dremal, sand the **** out of it. get it as smooth as u can
then take it back to the shop..
$300 for 30-60min of labor is stupid!! and even if u do mess it up alittle they make fiberglass filler for a reason and the pan will cover it either way!
give it a try

No you didnt sound like a di** dont worry, any input is what I wanted. Also I didnt go with it because its so much, I'm thinking about just having it molded in if I'm going through all that trouble. The guy said the main thing he would have to do was build the edge of it up, because once he grinded down the extra material the edge would not be even, where the extra is it the edge comes out some, so he would have to build the edge up flush so there would not be a larger gap towards the bottom.

Might try a different shop. I had mine done, but it was along with some insurance work being done, so I don't know what the charges were, I do know that it was about $36/hr. Also, the shop I went to said it was no big deal. Here is mine...




I had the same mounts as you only it is an '98 bed on a '00 truck.

Also, Rangeron17s, dude, that is one fine ride!
