    I forgot to mention that the aluminum is a pain to keep that shiny so if you a low maintenance kinda person you might opt for a steel one

    Yea, i was thinking the same thing... Aluminum looks nice, and is lighter... But

    Its a 1 ton, so we could use some weight back there, and my other bro has a newer Pete quad axle dump (big one) with a aluminum bed, and i used to wash his trucks, and it was a pain to keep it looking nice...

    And steel is cheaper...

    Nice truck by the way tho, looks slick...

    We built a flat bed for our truck this spring. It works pretty good as it is easy to load and has a lot more room. Here are two pictures I had on my phone of it.

    If you do a steel flatbed, I think you'll find that the flatbed weighs more than the stock bed. I thought I read in one of your other posts that you have a sander for this truck as well, if that is the case, you'll have more than enough weight in the back.

    Nice looking Ford '02. I've always thought that you have one of the best looking flatbeds.

    i totally understand id feel the same way if i drove a ford. people swap cummins into broken powerjokes very often, have yet to see a dodge with one of those silly poorly built international harvester things under the hood:D:D:D:D
