I have the same issue only worse. My front rail IS gone. Completely. They don't see much treatment coming from the assembly line leaving them open to rust and only a matter of time. I now have a somewhat tilt bed. If you sit on the tailgate, the bed tips up slightly, not a good situation. The rest of the truck is reasonable with little rust.

was under the truck today, rust is like cancer. the hole front of my bed is GONE. i was trying to make some rough measurements b4 i pulled and started knocking off some of the rust. because i have a bedliner, i had no idea the damage was so bad. i may still be able to do some serious patching, but a new bed may be better. anyone kno if i can get the whole bottom of the bed? my sides are perfect with no fender rust? or any good deals on bed?-the canary yellow would be awsome so i wouldnt have to paint it.

I don't know if you ever found what you were looking for,but believe LMC sells all parts of the truck bed.

Same here. No rust anywhere on my 2003. Except for the front bed rail is about gone. I thought it was from my light bar I had bolted through it. Or maybe from running my quad in too tight. I pulled the bedliner out. Other than a little paint rub-off, there isn't any rust anywhere else. Need to weld in a new front this summer.

Some problem gonna weld in a new piece when it warms up too. I also think it magnified by ratcheting in my dirtbike so much

I just replaced both of my bed rails...made new ones from scratch. only the 2 bolts at the rear bumper where holding it! I didnt want it to happen again so i coated every piece of my frame, bed, and cab.
