Jeff, it looks like the crossmember at the back of the bed may need some help, too. I didn't buy the repop crossmember, I bought 2x4 steel tubing and made my own. I welded it to the bedside with some reinforcements and no one has noticed that it's not stock. Bought enough tubing for the crossmember and a rear bumper for less than the price of a new repop crossmember.
AFA the the stake pockets being different on the f2 bed, I think I saw where someone took f1 pockets and split them to both widen and lengthen them. Might be easier to fix what you have and reinstall them.

Yes you are correct, the section across the back needs work, I haven't looked at it real hard yet but I know it. I have thought the same thing, buying tube if I need to. And the F1 stake pockets are also shorter than the original ones. I don't think they will too bad to repair, they are solid as a rock. It will just take some patience. The one I show in the pics is the worst one, the other rear one is better by far and the front ones are near perfect. yeah I got some work ahead of me! No hill for a climber!
