Need opinions on this bed

Alright, my desperation is leading me to this. A Craigslist find (-____-)

Keep in mind, I'm building a show truck, it needs to be perfect.

Is it worth trying to fix? (His other bed has a good passenger side, but a wrecked driver)


Worst spot (2 pics)

It looks like it has hail damage, which in some cases can be removed pretty easily. Its something a half decent body man could pick out and then fill the low spots to be smooth again.

The only thing that its troublesome is the front part of the bed, where the flat bottom meets the front part, that is THE most common spot for rust to start. Take a good look there if you want show quality.

Cut the frame and leave the bed mounted on it so i can use it as a trailer!


It doesn't look bad but if you plan to stay flareless to match the front fenders, the filling of the holes may get expensive.
get a rough quote from a reputable body shop not a cheap one

ok wow, only 1 side had a flare? WTF

The bed in the last pic is his extra one.

I might try to swing a deal to get both beds, we'll see

New bed

See if you can get some pics with the bed liner out, it could be hiding some damage. Nice looking beds.
