Swapping Beds...Again

Yup, I'm swapping beds again.

This time, I'm trading mine for an '03 white flare side in perfect condition. Chris (Foxrider0102) needs a fleet side so he can run fiberglass bedsides (I think). But I have a few questions...

What all is going to be different? Will I have to modify anything from what I have now? Bumpers are different I've heard?

Other than all that, I'm freaking stoked! WoooO!

It weighs alot! It'd be expensive as hell to ship but I can if you want. It requires the stock hitch to mount up unless you wanna fab new mounts.

Ford had different style taillights........
