No such thing as a cheap bed repair, unless you say to heck with it and do up a flatbed.

Junker bed *IF* you can find a good one is around $400 in the US without a tailgate.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
i don't know about changing my 4runner to have a flat bed... I think that would be more work than I want..<img src="/forums/images/graemlins/drunk.gif" alt="" />
just kidding. honestly I am not sure if there's really anything I can do to the wheel wells other than the weld in patch - or leave it the way it is <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" /> but something needs to be done to it. Thanks for the help though (and I didn't mean to hijack this thread <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />)

yah, 200 bucks per side isn't cheap <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
but I am not sure if the glass sides will work for me either. The rocker panels are rusted through in some places (sorry, too lazy to find out how to post pics right now) and not too sure how long i'll have the truck for. But I was looking for an easy "cheap" repair <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" />

My rockers behind the doors were also rusted to crap. (underneath the doors was perfect tho>?) and the fiberglass panels fixed it all up. For the places on the back wall that the panels mount to i had some holes, so i used some fiberglass to fill them, worked great.

Greg... how did you apply the fibreglass panels to the truck? was it right over the rust holes and stuff or did you cut off the old side and reglue the glass on? I know of some that just get glued or rivited to the actual truck side and get painted from there.

Inistalation is shown in one of the threads by CJM you can find it in a search. I think the best way is to completely remove the old panel like Corey does and then glue/rivit/screw the new panel on. Repairing behind the panel is pretty easy its just flat sheeting so welding in some patch is pretty straight forward.

checked out the link, wow... that looks like it would be a LOT of work... but the new glass panels look great! So, beyond the cost of the panels @$275ea side, some new tools (rent) and some panel glue - plus the paint and a guy to do it (have a friend that spent the last 20 years spraying) I'm probably looking at $700(just the panels finished)- $1200 (rest of the truck with one new fender and driver door) wait a sec... need a new(er) tailgate too - $350
So i'll bring the total to finish the whole truck up to $1550 <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /><img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/zombie.gif" alt="" />
there goes my "cheap" fix! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/drunk.gif" alt="" />
But I would have a nice body for the truck <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I wonder what I could get for that much money in the ways of things to make my stock runner to go further in the bush <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />
