This is an 8' pickup box off of a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500. It will fit all Generation 2 ( 1994 – 2001 ) Dodge Rams. It may fit other years as well, but I do not know that, or what modifications it ( or the truck frame ) would need to work on them.
It is in exceptionally nice condition for it's age, with very little rust damage. The only bad spots are the tops of the wheel arches, which of course is the normal place these all rust out. The floor, and whole structure is in fine shape and SOLID ! The other minor damaged spot is the right rear lower corner, where the rotted out bumper got mashed into it a bit. That of course is a fixable problem, if you want to do so. In some of the photos the left taillight is broken, but I have replaced that, so they are both good. I left the light sockets in them, with the pigtail plug ends.
It comes with the tailgate, and that is in fine shape also. It comes with the bedliner, and the tailgate has a matching liner piece on it. All 8 bed mounting bolts came out with no issues, and those are included as well. The license plate holder and lights come with it too.
This would be a good replacement bed for one that has been beat up, or has rotted out. If one is restoring a truck of this era, it would be a good candidate to fix the minor rust damage and make it like new. I'm sure that wheel arch repair panel sections are available.
As you can see in the photos, I made up a lifting frame to take it off the truck. I have those frame pieces sitting here ready to lift it off the trailer I have it on, and put it on your bare truck frame, or another trailer.
There is a possibility that I could deliver it to your location, if you are close enough to me. You would obviously need to come here and inspect it first, and pay for it, before I will even consider delivering it. It is pretty secure on the little trailer I have it on, and a couple of more straps should make it good for a road trip, if it is not to far. I have not taken it down the road like it is though, so no guarantee that I will be able to deliver it. It was placed on there mainly so I can move it around my yard easily.
