WTT: 03 Bed for a Stepside Bed -OH

I have an 03 FX4 Regular Bed and want to trade it for a step side. Anybody? Mine is in great shape, does have two holes where the toolbox is mounted. The paint code is TS which is Silver Frost Pearl Metallic.

I have a shop that we could do the swap in, so please let me know.

Now we are talking! I don't have my camera here but I will get some shots later today. The paint code is TS which is the silver color. Check your door tag. We may have a winner folks!!!

Hitch, if you have an FX4 then you have fender flares, which means you guys should probably trade front fenders too..

That is the same code. I am good to go then, just gotta find a time to do it. If you were coming to the spring meet on the 11th here, that would be good, otherwise, lets look at what weekends we can meet and if beard will be around, he has offered his garage for the swap. My thought was if we timed this right, I have a PA 3" lift that I want to install, so what better time than when the bed is off anyway...

Let me know what your schedule looks like and we can go from there.

I can do any day just pick a date and i can get it off.

i have a few questions can you get some pics of the holes you are talking about and does your bed have a bedliner or anything?

and i think meeting at beards would be our best bet since its about half way for both of us.

I will try and get some pics this weekend, the holes are up front and about 3/8". They were used to bolt the tool box down instead of using the j-bolts that came with it. Beards is cool, and a sunday afternoon would work, I figure it should take about 3-1/2 hours for me to get there.

My next 2 weekends are booked solid, so maybe April 5th or the or the 19th? To make it easier, I'll do the body lift another time.
