I was looking for a replacement bed for my truck. Haven't had any luck.Drivers side isn't too bad. Bed is good, but the passenger side is beat. How much thinner are repop panels vs. original and are all repops about the same quality. Thanks.

Replacement tailgates have come part on my truck. The extra louvered welded on cover is too much weight over time. The side edge welds that lock onto the striker bolt don't hold up. I have no experience with doors or other major body panels.


Here's how to rebuild a truck bedside.
