Tire blowout= bad

I was wondering how and if this could be fixed by simply bending the body back to its original shape and place. I would be afraid it would crack and pop the paint off the metal. Would you attempt to fix it or just buy a new bed?

You do run a high risk of the paint cracking if you just bend it back . it can be repaired although some body shops might suggest to replace the Bed side. not the entire bed though. i would get some estimates and compare cost to replace the bed side to the cost to repair that. make sure that if you decide to repair it that the shop can make it look correct. no point in paying money to someone who cant do a correct repair.

That type of damage is actually pretty common on pick up beds. we see it often

That damage is caused by a tire separation. Would you know how much off the top of your head it would cost a shop to bend it all back? I may even try it myself I am not looking for it to be a professional job...

It would probably be cheaper to find a bed at a salvage yard.

might be cheaper to find a used bed at a salvage yard yes, but my guess is if your worried about that fold then you would want the used bed to match the rest of the truck. so, the whole bed would need to be painted unless you are lucky enough to find a decent used White bed. to paint a whole used bed to match would probably even out the cost of just repairing it. might even put it over. Thats assuming you can find a decent used bed at a low cost.

i cant really tell you how much it would cost cause labor rates differ so much from state to state. in MD they are regulated by the insurance company. if you just want it "bended " back and you arent worried about having it straighten then id suggest saving the cash and just do it yourself. If you dont like how it looks then you can let a shop finish it off for you

It will fold out about 90% with small skill, pad with wood to prevent creases and kinks. After it starts unrolling a large c-clamp or 2 will force it to unroll exactly where you want. Once you get near shape, clean both sides so the dirt and metal tools don't cause dents.

Shape a wood piece to back and use a dinging spoon with a layer of masking tape to pad it to lower the creases.

After that it is either bondo or a high skill job.

Bedside or used bed are similar in cost.
