    Thanks guys.
    There is nothing in this area with no rust.
    All trucks have rust issues with the rear fenders and bed rails.

    ask at the truck shops where they build wreckers and dump trucks for municipalities. they get brand new takeoff beds all the time, and sell them at reasonable prices.

    I feel your pain. We have 11 Super Dutys going all the way back to a couple of 2000's. Everything from the 2006 back is rotting out big time with the rear fender lips, rocker panels and front bed cross members being the worst. We gave up trying to find rust free beds up here and have started to convert to flat beds with headache racks. A little more work with wiring, but it appears to be cheaper over all. Good luck!

    No offense but 2500? I bought a 2015 take off, bumper, lights, gate, spray liner, bolts everything for 1200. New from Ford they are less then 2000 no lights, bumper, bolts.

    yea, if it ever stops raining i will. it came off a 2000 with 35,000 miles on it.
    truck was in a fire and melted the dash electrical. i got it to use as parts for a 2004 i picked up that was wrecked.
    i ended up putting a flatbed dump on the 04, so i do not need the bed because all the other superduties are short beds.

    There is a place in Indiana that sells a lot of beds. They have new "take off" beds that they get from down south. I bought one last month, I was close enough to pick it up though. DLHD Inc. is the name of the place their # is 574-867-1300 or you can look at the web site DLHD Inc.

    I'm from the island as well, I was looking earlier this year(still need to get one) but there is a guy in mass that gets new take offs all the time. I have his number somewhere if you want. Seems like a very nice guy.

    Is that cl seller serious. Great condition my ass. It has the typical wheel well rot from the foam ford puts in between the pinch welds. The rot will only get worse.
