My friend had a deer run into the side of his truck.  It's a 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD Long bed. 

 

I've found replacement bed sides for earlier 2000s trucks but not the newer body style. 

 

Anyone know where I can find newer panels?

Any body shop should be able to help.

Got any flatbed manufacturers or installers nearby? They usually know where to find a complete near new one for next to nothing.

That's a good thought!

 

I can only find up to 2007 on the internet.  I'll make some calls to local truck shops

Didn't even think of that. Companies that install work bodies usually have complete beds sitting around.

Found a company that has a couple beds, even have a white one, but he has a 2 month old high gloss super line-x on the bed.  So we can either buy a bed and salvage the bed side or he can take it to a body shop and have them do it.

 

He doesn't want to make an insurance claim, I was figuring we could find an aftermarket bed side put it on then have another buddy paint it up.
