Dodge Dakota 1987-1996, Outer Truck Bed Panel by Replace®. Bedside. Truck beds are abused from within and without. The outer panels can suffer from collision damage, rust, and dings and dents from car doors and shopping carts.

A new bed panel from the dealer will restore your truck's appearance, if you can get over the sticker shock. The economical answer is a new bed panel from Replace. Replace has quality replacement bed panels that are identical to original equipment (OE) for much less than the OE price.

The broad smooth surface of the typical outer truck bed panel will ensure that any flaw in the body shows through the paint. For this reason, repairing the kind of damage endured by the typical truck bed is not an option. The numerous dings, dents and rust holes in the typical truck bed are too hard to repair and make right. A replacement panel is the solution.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged truck bed panel were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE bed panel. Searching for a useable bed panel from a scrap yard is a waste of time, because you don't know its history and you may end with something that's been previously damaged and repaired with excess body filler. And many cheap replacement bed panels don't fit properly and aren't even made of the proper gauge sheet metal.
Today you can fix your truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement bed panel from Replace. Replace offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you'd get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A Replace bed panel will look and fit just like a bed panel from the dealer, so your truck will look new again. Replace bed panels are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they're manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A Replace bed panel is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge sheet metal.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A Replace bed panel is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A Replace bed panel will get you back on the road in a truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. Replace is so confident in the quality of its bed panels that they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
When selecting the Replace® component that is right for your model from the Product Options list, you may be offered a choice of Good, Better or Best. Good may be a part manufactured by a different company than the one that made the original part, but because it's based on the same design, it will look and function identically to the OE part. Better may be a part made by a brand name manufacturer and Best may be a part made by the same manufacturer that made the original part. Some parts labeled Best bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent, non-profit organization that oversees a testing program to guarantee the quality of automotive parts. CAPA certified replacement parts meet the industry's toughest standards. But regardless of how the part is labeled, have confidence that whichever one you choose, it will appear and function to your satisfaction.
