So, a year and a half ago, I took a turn too fast, did a 180 and put my '01 Silverado into a ditch. There was no ice on the road but it was night time and the air temp was about 20 degrees. The entire passenger side of my bed is crushed. Fortunately, there is no damage to the cab or frame, just the bed body panel. In unrelated activities, the driver's side bed has some minor dents and half my tailgate is missing its clear coat. Needless to say, my whole bed looks terrible. My question is, would it be cheaper to buy a whole new bed or have a body shop replace all the panels and paint the whole bed? I am looking for a maroon shortbox. The year doesn't matter so long as it fits a 2001, so I figure a '99 to '04-ish bed will work. I'd like it to be a step-side so I can give my truck a new look but a regular, straight side will do fine if that's all I can find. Ultimately it just needs to be maroon, undamaged and fit a 2001 Silverado. I work two jobs (about 70 hours a week) and just haven't had the time to look at local junk yards nor price local body shops for the repair work. The few beds I have seen on Craig's List were either Maroon with some minor damage (what's the point?) or undamaged but in a different color. If I picked up an undamamged bed of a different color and had it repainted, I figure I'll be pushing about a thousand dolllars and then'll I'll be in body shop territory. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!
