    okay at church today since there was a little snow on the ground i guess that someone thought it would be a good idea to smash into my truck:mad:......
    they hit the rear right side on the bed smashed it down to bare metal and scratched it all up....

    My question is could the dealership replace the whole bed side w/o replacing anything else??????
    --->Thank you,
    -TRDMAN-​

    They probably could but chances are that they will just pound it out and re-paint, since it's an 08 the color should match very good. Sucks though. :(

    Not even safe at church. Whats this word coming to.

    "My question is could the dealership replace the whole bed side w/o replacing anything else??????"

    My guess would be yes, seeing that you list an '08, assuming nothing else was crushed. My guess is that any other painted panel on that bed side that was re-used would be repainted as well.

    You didn't sat how deep the 'smashed' area was smashed?

    it shouldnt be a big issue. I agree it sounds like it woulod be more cost effective to "pound out" the existing metal work.

    If it is to bad to pound out they can replace the bed side. If I were you I would take it to a body shop that will pull the skin off that side and put on a new one and paint.

    I think I would skin the guy that hit you then get it fixed with his wallet.

    But dealerships aren't always the best at body work.

    If you could post pics that would help. Make sure your check the box itself as well. I have seen a bunch of them crack when they get hit because they are composite now not steel. Also check around in regard to body shops and just use one with a good rep whether it be a dealership or an independent one. I deal with this daily as I am an Auto Adjuster for a major insurance company. If you have questions just post them up or PM me. Good luck with the repairs.

    Yes - the bedsides are modular and can be independently replaced without having to replace the entire bed.

    However ... You need to check on the composite bed floor piece to ensure it's undamaged. If it is, it's one big piece that'll have to be replaced.

    Take it to the dealership and find out who does their body work. Most dealerships I deal with have arrangements with outside body shops and don't do body work on-site.

    If i had a 'brand new' 08' truck, i would prefer it be replaced instead of settling for it to just be 'pounded out'. Thats just me.

    With you tempering the degree of damage with your more recent post, i suspect they would just fix the existing one and repaint it.

    Just a note, if they replace the bed side or not, make sure they look at the flare and any hardware for damage or pops.
    I know when I hit the side of the garage, (long story blame my mom) I messed up the flare, and all the hardware, plus the mudflap and it's hardware. Also that rubber piece between flare and side body.
    Never hurts to look :)

    I will be going to a local 5 star body shop this Friday to get an estimate... they will be doing the work if the insurance company accepts their quote... it is not that bad after i calmed down and got a close look, but the distance from the bumper to the body is off so something is bent... but at least nobody was hurt...
