    So I wreck my new truck, backed into a cemented in stop sign pole and pushed up the rear bumper into the fender a bit. Insurance wants to put on new bedside, bumper etc. but I'm not a huge fan of repairing because (A) it's a brand new truck and things that are repaired up here tend to rot out 10 times faster. I found a new take off bed in the same color in Williamstown NJ but the guy only has 1 picture and it looks like a dent right under the right taillight but he says it's perfect, I've seen some people's idea of perfect... I know it's a crazy thought but just wondering if someone might be right in the area who might want to help a brother out and check it out before I make the 7.5 hour trip. If so message me for the shop info.

    I don't have any service calls over that way. But a buddy of mine lives in Washington, NJ. I could probably persuade him to get a look at it and take some pics.

    Your body shops don't carry a lifetime warranty on their work? Most of them around here do.

    Brian, if this doesn't pan out let me know. ^^^^^^

    I have family in the vicinity. I could see if they would be willing to check it out.

    Some do if they are on the insurance vendor list but would much rather have a bed that hasn't been altered.

    Wrong Williamstown!
    The yard the bed is at is the southern Williamstown not the one near Washington NJ. My buddy isn't up for a 2 hour ride.
    Sorry Man

    LOL thats why I was hoping for someone who was really close so I wouldn't be putting anyone out that would be able to just swing by for a couple minutes. I did that for a guy in here many years ago but had it not been local I wouldn't have been able to do it. He's sending me a couple pics today.

    I have been looking for an 8' blue jeans blue 13 through 16 ford bed now for months.
    Next truck will be white, which I detest, just because 99 out of 100 new take off parts are white.

    They sure are. Then 99% of used parts are white or red.
