    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    For regular towing, I would agree. For a couple planned tows per year, well maintained and inspected equipment, nice weather, good roads, I'm tickled to see the abilities increased to the levels the...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    If you follow their guildlines of having both, their Max-Payload and Max-Tow packages, as well as a properly set weight distributing hitch, and also have properly operating brakes on the trailer,...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    Calling them the big three is just being politically correct. Ya wouldn't want to hurt the feelings of the assembly line workers that go out to get stoned and drunk during breaks. They may have to...

    Re: new.. or used??

    It's either not a common model, or isn't a problematic model, because it's not mentioned often. What little I've seen has been new owner praise. Pleased owners are generally quiet owners. It has a...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    Same. I've never really had an issue with any of my Fords and generally have owned each for 10 years, posting roughly 200,000 miles on each of them. Actually my only non-recall warranty services...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    Well said. I didn't buy a new F150 cause I was looking for my favorite flavor. I bought one because the INDEPENDENT testing, as well as my own real world experiences all told me that it was the...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    I never claimed sales make quality, except perhaps resale values. No, I don't think McDonalds or Chinese imports are of good quality, which is why I refuse to purchase a GM product and quit eating...

    The government MUST make everything more complicated. They need the appearance they're earning your money. It's for your own good.

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    I've heard that most of the high end spray in liners would improve dent resistance, but finding a company that applies it as thick as is specified by the manufacturer is next to impossible. From...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    Actually, if ya read up on it, Chevy claims to have done all tests a dozen times or some such. The marketing video editors I'm sure took the camera angles and test shots they felt would best make...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    Neither of those points were overlooked, just disregarded as BS by those that like the ad and hate Ford... Apparently there are tons of folk who always set toolboxes on their bedrails. Also...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    The F150 is by no means perfect, if I thought it were, I wouldn't have sprung for 7 year/150,000 mile "PremiumCare Warranty". I've just done tons of research on the subject, am an owner, and nothing...

    I know what you're saying about the give/take balance-act they have to dance around on truck suspensions. I once knew an older fella who had to give up his pride and joy F250 Lariat because his...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    I fit that category. I tow my maximum loads a couple times a year. Always good weather, never more than about 60 miles one way. If I did it often, I would have thought I'd want a larger truck. As...

    Re: Ford aluminum truck beds are strong how?

    In all honesty, the changes they made with the new F150s is not that unlike the changes they've made to the big rigs and heavy duty trucks over the years. They widened the space between the frame...
