Wermbang, that is one very nice looking truck, I have to say.

But, yes...nice beds are here in FL for $70 at the pick-n-pull.

And, there is four bolts on the bottom of the bed. Luckily, Dodge actually put bolts and welded nuts on the inside of the bed...

so...its pretty easy to change really. We changed a bed on my dad's pace truck in the matter of about an hour, with four guys to lift it on.

I am so getting a sport grille and bumper for the truck once I get to those. They should bolt up the same as the standard right? Of course I would need the sport grille AND bumper.

You will also need the bumper brackets for the 99-01 sport and the grill frame bracket.

$70 for a box!!!!!!! Try a $1000 around me for a decent one. Maybe I should road trip?? Cause I need one too

yup...thats $70 for just a box. No tailgate or tail lights. Also, thats without the core charge (we brought the old one in for a core the day we pulled it).

And, in Florida, they're all rust free

Son of a monkey, the sport grille and bumper are gonna have to wait. A plain jane black sport grille with no emblem is 120 cheapest on flea bay and the bumper? Like 250 for a plain jane primer gray one lol. Not counting the grille bracket and bumper mounts.

Yeah that conversion ain't cheap. Luckily mine already has it done But I still could use another bumper.

Well my dad has a friend that might be heading to Florida in his semi, to pick up some type of lift. My dad is going to check to see if he would be able to haul a bed back or not.
So hopefully I may get a nice box cheap.

I also need a new bed for my truck. Looks like someone went at it with a baseball bat! I am not sure about how to get one home or to a service shop.
The Junkyards I have spoken to say it is pickup only and they don't ship. How are ya'll getting these things home to switch them out?!

We got mine and flipped it upside down ontop of the bed already on it and healed it. Just used about 4 of those ratcheting straps made for loads like atvs and motorcycles and went like 45mph on the interstate lol.

I also used the holes in the rails of both beds to put bolts through and secure them to one another as insurance.
