Default Body work questions

So a couple days ago I was driving my truck on the highway and my tire decided it was a good time to blow up... well the tread decided it was going to come off sounds more accurate. anyways the tire crushed the bed all around it my insurance says that they will fix it by cutting the side of the bed and welding in a new side.... is that the correct way to fix it or should i argue with them and try and get a new bed?

American family, they said it’s like 2300 to fix the damage... and they are going to get the side panel off another truck that has been totaled.... do you by a chance know what a body shop charges per hour of work the insurance company said its 28 book hours of work and I will not have the truck for 6 days just seems like thats a low amount for 28 hours at a shop

No that's about right because shops will estimate about 5 hours per day. It's probably between 46 and 52$ an hour. Do you have rental car coverage?

Okay so I found a bed off a 2003 that's like brand new the guy that has it has been storing it since 2003 when he bought the truck new and swapped the bed for a work box bed... Now I just need to have it painted does anyone know a shop that does a good job that would be interested in doing a cash deal?
