Default Re: Looking for a new Pickup Bed

Sounds like you are leaning towards a new bed. If you decide otherwise, and for those who have an interest, the material thickness in the bed varies depending on the part. The side panels are .074" thick (14g) and the rear channel is .089" (13g). Before purchasing a repair channel you might want to see how long the repair part is. I was concerned about the length so I had a hat channel fabricated.
The best way to repair your bed would be to disassemble it but don't do that if you are going with a new bed. Sell the old one and let the new owner see how it is put together.
