New owner 2005 2500HD

Hello forum, bought a 2005 Crewcab 2500HD. Its an east coast truck with rust issues. 210K on the odometer..it just had a ARP bolts, head redone from a bad head gasket. Hoping to get another 200K from it. I pulled the bed, cut out the rear gas tank support and will weld a new one in. Using a 3 inch pipe and brackets for the upper shock and fuel tank strap. Frame seems to be in good shape...looking for replacement bed options and new rear back bumper. Also got a 3 inch rough country lift....any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

Best place to find those kind of body parts is probably salvage yards. Google something like - - auto salvage parts search.

Here are a few I found in just a few seconds.
