I’m probably in the wrong spot, but maybe I can find a lead here. I’m in the market for a short bed for my ‘79 K10. Mines about rusted out totally, and I can’t find a decent one anywhere. Anyone have one for sale or know where I might start to look? Thanks y’all

Hop on craigslist and look in the SW. They may have some rust but nothing like the rest of the US.

This!

In Phoenix, AZ, $400-600 gets you something you can work with, $800 should get you something nice. Usually 1-2 for sale a month on CL. May be worth the drive. If you are willing to drive out and get one, I can put you in touch with a guy that parts out squarebodies and he could probably set something up for you.

This shortbed stuff is crazy... I got a decent longbed here in Oregon for $50 last year since the bed bottom was rusted out on mine.
