    My f350 is rusting, it doesn't need to be replaced now, but I would like to find out were i can get a good but cheap 6.5' bed for a 2001 f350. I looked on ebay but there way to much.

    Any ideas where i can buy one?!?!?!?!?

    Is it a regular bed or flatbed your looking at?

    I vote turning it into a flatbed.

    i have seen clean bed range from $900 to $7,000 depending on location around he country.
    short beds are harder to find, so you usually have to jump when you do find one.

    I looked for a long time till we found a clean one . Got it for 600 but it was 3 hrs away. If I had to do it all over again I would have just put a flatbed on it. Once you get it you still have to paint it. Shortbed beds are a somewhat rare find

    The short box beds are tough to find..at least around here. I just replaced the bed on my 2003 and it took me about six months to locate one that wasnt 1000 miles away, way overpriced, or completley rusted. Good luck!

    You can go where they sell Flatbeds and most of time they will have take off factory beds or they may know where you can find one
