Have a '78 Ford short-wheel base F-150 with (not happy about this) Dodge bed and '84 Ford Dually fenders. Works well, but, not right. Any suggestions on locals for bed parts ? Has 300 I6, rugged little beast. Here in NE CT, happy to hear from any Ct, RI or MA members,
Not cheap though. If it was me I would keep checking your local paper, Bargain news, etc. Find a complete truck with the bed you are looking for. Something worthy of a restoration, if that's what your looking for?
