Gotta call BS on the test. Watch how the blocks are loaded in the bucket. You will see it change from jumbled to stacked and back.

Tool box test seemed pretty clear though.. Scary IF it is real.

So the Yotas have a PLASTIC bed? Not just a bed liner? Crazier yet!

Main reason I got my 2016 F250 and not a 2017.

Looks like there are some "issues" to work out.

How is a 5th wheel hitch going to hold up in that aluminum bed?

You have to remember who put the video out there. They are as bad as politicians. They will spin it in their favor every time. Look at the difference in how the tool box bounced in the two tests. It looks fishy to me.

The hitch should not be mounted to the bed. It should be mounted and supported by the frame. If your hitch relies on the bed I would look at replacing it with one that has underbed system like the pucks.

The test if flawed or not who cares.

I don't see any landscaper around my HOA hauling blocks in there Chevy or Ford. They use a landscape trailer as they unload using a bobcat. Who is going to hand bomb a ton of stone all broken to bits.

Remember - These are NOT tests - they are STUNTS. PR.
