    So somehow the back portion of my bed has a pretty large crack in it… :mad:

    I'll post a picture up here sometime soon, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to fix this, preferably without spending too much money.


    Thanks!!

    Depending on magnitude of the crack, some industrial strength adhesive & sealer should work to hold it together :cool:

    You're the first person I've heard of this happening to, you drop something super heavy on?

    It's fiberglass, so why not some epoxy? Then touchup with some semigloss black.

    Maybe contact Toyota about it? Couldn't hurt, unless it is from something you did and not normal wear and tear.

    The bed is not fiberglass, it's a composite plastic :cool:

    Unless, you're talking about fiberglass bedsides :notsure:

    I bought it used. The guy I bought it from had a ladder rack right where the crack was so I didn't notice it until I brought her home. So I have no idea how it happened :confused:

    And it is in the actual bed itself, where the bed meets the cab.

    How big is large? Wondering if it will just hold out if it's not too big or not too wide? Perhaps a professional spray on bedliner might help fill in the gap. That stuff bonds to the surface.

    Use a dremel and bevel the crack, drill the ends, fill with two part epoxy, let dry and sand flush.

    If you want some real good shit find a body shop with a 3M duramix gun and have them fill it with 08223 3M duramix adhesive

    Have you taken the plastic bedliner out and checked to see where the crack is?
