I'm, looking for a newer model truck bed that will fit a 1979 F150 Ranger XLT, my old one is all rusted out and it would be easier to replace it that buy pieces parts, since I'm trying to restore this guy

 

Thanks Tom

Yo Tom,
Welcome!
Of course, location is a big factor due to shipping or pick up costs.
A yard that uses the Hollander Interchange system can locate a suitable replacement bed and may save you $ on shipping.
For a YARD SEARCH on-line, I use;
http://www.hollanderparts.com/
A yard that uses Hollander Interchange can search other yards and have it shipped.
Can select certain parts
Search By: 1979 >Ford > F150 > Rear Body > Pickup Box > Fitment; Choose the bed size:
Flareside, 6' 9" Box
Flareside, 8' Box
Styleside, 6' 9" Box, Dual Fuel Tanks
Styleside, 6' 9" Box, Single Fuel Tank
Styleside, 8' Box, Dual Fuel Tanks, Tool Box
Styleside, 8' Box, Dual Fuel Tanks, W O Tool Box
Styleside, 8' Box, Single Fuel Tank, Tool Box
Styleside, 8' Box, Single Fuel Tank, W O Tool Box
Has Vehicle Pics for some vehicles
Call the yards listed and ask your questions about beds that will fit from other years, makes, etc. Some have been doing this for years. And may have info on other parts needed such as a different crossmember, gas tank size, etc.

Around my area, there is a company that converts pick ups to campers, flat beds, etc and they sell the beds. Look for a similar place near you. Or one that grabs beds from those those firms such as;
In Indiana,http://dicksautopart...truck-beds.html
