I may be willing to sell mine, once I take delivery of my truck- the bed sides and tailgate look nice in the pictures...

737Driver,

I can see your truck has the tail gate and ladder. You might have the bed sides stowed in the "trunk." That's what happened to my truck. When I went to pick it up, the first thing I did was open the storage under the bed and I found all the sides, the benches, and side tops in there. I was really happy.

BTW, I see that your steel cover for the storage is missing the pin that holds it on. You will want to fix that before transport or driving it any where or you will lose it and it weighs a ton. It could hurt someone if it falls off.

Thanks Jon!! I hope you are right that would be a nice surprise! Did you buy yours from the Yermo Ca site?

Yes, I picked mine up at Yermo. I bought it in June 2019 and back then they did not bother to put the sides on. Now I think they will take the sides out and put them on because then the truck looks better and will sell for more money. I hope your truck has the sides! Let us know.

Would you be willing to send me the dimensions of that pin for the storage cover? I’d like to try to source one so I can have it when I pick up the truck! Maybe some pics. If you have time you can send it to jasongomora@yahoo.com I would greatly appreciate it!!

737Driver,

Here are the photos. Note the pin has two detent ball bearings on it that keeps it on the cover plate. Looks like the pin is a 3/8 in diameter and 2 7/8 inches long. I don't think the length is so important. You can see the ball bearing in the second photo. I think Ace Hardware might have something like this.

I was running some errands today and I drove by a Ace Hardware so I stopped. I found a pin that may work. It has just one ball bearing to retain it but it might work.

737Driver, we took delivery of our truck today. The tailgate and bed sides are in surprisingly good shape. They are not perfect, but they are the nicest ones I've ever seen. I think the only way you'll be able to find nicer ones, would be to buy brand new ones and have them painted. You can PM me if you're still interested... :)
