    Looking to buy an 8 foot F150, F250, or F350 bed to fit 1990 F350 Single rear wheels. I think anything from about '81 to 96 will fit. Needs to have dual fuel doors and tailgate.
    Looking to spend $200-$300.
    Thanks,
    Chris in Boston

    $2-300? Unless the market is a lot different there than here, I'd say I doubt it. Most rust free truck beds go for a grand here, at least $500 for something "workable".

    Or do what I did for my S15--buy one on ebay because no one wants to ship them (or pay to ship one) and go get it. I found a southern one brought up to PA for $300... but I had to truck it from there, felt it was a steal.

    I do have a pair of rust free complete doors to fit your truck if you feel like a road trip....

    i have just that off a 1993, even a drop in liner. tailgate works perfect in good shape. will need sum rust work on the wheel wells and around the edges but overall its useable. i only took it off to put an 8ft dumping flatbed on my truck. i would trade for an 8ft dumping flat bed or even a 8ft flat bed.

    not sure what its worth but i need a get something off it to pay for the dumping flatbed.

    I did do my research, the several boneyards I went to, said in the 2 or 3 hundred range for what I was looking for, considering there were millions of these trucks, and loads are in yards, now, it's not inconceivable. I figured I'd give the guys here an opportunity to put some cash in their pocket, rather than some recyclers.
    Later,

    Well if you were looking to spend a bit more you could get a real nice New Mexican F250 4x2 for $3400 right here in Cenral Mass.

    My brother has a super clean south western F250 4x2 from New Mexico would make a great canidate for a 4x4 frame swap, I've been tempted! lol

    If you know anyone looking for a rust free straight F250 4x2 call me 508 753 6617
