Allworth, it has nothing to do with brand lets not go there.
It has everything to do with driver awareness, the pickup no matter brand did not have heavy duty towing package or it would not have strap on mirrors.


If you cannot take good care of what you have, you will not have anything good for very long!!!

It may have a lot to do with the aluminum truck construction.

The frame is still steel. Steel body would have had no effect where it bent between the cab and bed.

The front ripped loose from the frame and the rear of bed got sliced by the frame.
I am guessing!

Thanks for pointing that out. I knew they were separate when I got my 2020. Didn’t realize they used to be included. I deleted my previous post.

I saw a friend drop his fiver on a 2000 Ford three-quarter ton and I've seen other beds and they weren't damaged too badly. It must be the aluminum bed. Craig

You people are so negative just because it's an F150. It's an F150 between the years of 2010 and 2014. You can tell that by it's tail lights.

It's not the all aluminum truck from 2015 on.

That kind of damage does not occur by just loading a too heavy load in the bed..

To me, they hitched it up, thought it was locked and pulled forward. It was not locked and it then fell off the hitch and hit the bed and crushed the hell out of the bed which also blew out the back window with the flex that must have happened during that incident.

The pic had to be taken after they jacked the trailer up again and hitched it up or whatever..

I know I am just guessing as much as all of you, but to say "It's just a Ford" and "it's too much for a 1/2 ton" is just nonsense..

Just my opinion of course.. [emoticon] Mitch
