Funny but quite an exaggeration. Just because you can does not mean you should. There are risks to exceeding either payload capacity and tow capacity and often times people fail to consider the payload capacity. I think the point folks are making here is for the OP to consider these factors.

I have the 20K B&W installed in my F250 with the factory puck system, so no bed rails are required. It is quite eash to remove if I need to haul something. I have the 6 3/4 foot bed and have yet to encounter a problem with truck cab clearance on sharp turns. The B&W was much cheaper, American made and I liked the build design much better than the Reese
