New Superduty Bed

Hello All, I've been AWOL for awhile.
I had a left rear tire blowout on Hwy 199 between Grants Pass and Brookings Or.
The tread seperated and beat up the bed, inner bed and skin. The appraisal was $4500 and change. The repairs were to take 10 days to two week after parts arrive. Yesterday, Sunday I was checking out Craigs List and ran across this:
2013 Ford Bed F250 LONG NEW TAKEOFF. I called and made an appointment for 10:00 AM this morning. The price was $1150 for the bed and $150 to swap out my old bed. I didn't want the tailgate as I use a louvered 5th wheel tailgate and still have the original. They deducted $300 so I got the bed for $850 plus $150 labor. Two hours for the swap and I was on my way to get Extreme Spray Liner. I was home by 3:00 PM with a new bed for just under $1400. George, the owner
said these are takeoff beds from a utility bed installing company and he has a steady supply.

Did you get a chance to "Hutch & Harpoon" the tank while the bed was off?

That's the easiest time (and way) to do it.

No Pop, the bed wasn't off very long. They are busy as you can imagine.
