Rusted Rear Quarter Panels

The rear quarter panels on my 2004 F250 Super Cab Diesel truck are badly rusted above the wheels. I have been researching replacing them the quarter panels or getting an entire new bed. I got a quote to replace and paint both sides for $4000. That seems high to me since I found online I can buy replacement panels for around $380 x 2 for each sides. I guess there is an inner and outer panel for each side that is why I mentioned $380 x 2.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Buy a rust free bed, paint to match, and be done with it. Out here in CA, beds are cheap, $400-1000 for long beds and $750-1500 for short beds. You could almost have one transported by LTL Truck then painted and still be ahead of that quote.
