Same tool box. I won't bounce much if it is puncturing the bed like it did in the soda can Ford.

I am a Ford guy, have been for years. All I can say is WOW. I certainly hope there was something fishy with the video.

Seriously.. I get that these videos are to make a point ( I do love my Chevy).. But WOW! I hope they "staged" that a bit to make a point if you will... At first I was like, OK, I am not dumping a Bobcat of cinder blocks into my 50,000 F150 or 1500... But the tool box BLEW MY MIND!

Is this bed only on the 150? or the others as well?

Not staged at all. My buddy is a stunt man out in Cali and worked on this commercial. He is one of the guys in the hard hats. He said it really happened. They were all stunned at the damage of the Ford bed.

Why didn't they use the same tool box for each test? The only reason I can think of is they didn't weigh the same.

I thought it was, I'll have to look closely. Either way to me this is a problem. Maybe not to the mall cruiser that had a truck to be the cool one on the block... But those who actually use their truck's... Big issue here

All I can say is, I've had more than one item go "thump" up against the back of the cab, and pretty much every time I get a pallet of mulch or anything at Home Depot the guy driving the forklift bangs the corners of the skid into my wheel wells. I've also had to drag heavy steel items across the bed with a tooth filling screech. Ever see what a 5 gallon bucket of scrap mined from the berm at a shooting range looks like?

Seems like any one of those could put a serious gouge or crease in that aluminium.

I got rear ended once and my bumper put two 3" scrapes in the fender. Just barely creased it. They came right out. Would those have been tears?

I like my 2013 F-150 more and more. But if I'm going to upgrade, better do it before they "improve" the Super Duty
