Fords big issue IS the bed, Aluminum is good for the weight but in no way near as strong as steel and thatís the biggest complaint I hear about the Ford is the bed metal tearing, so keeping the bed steel for Chevy is a good idea.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

The bed is still steel on the new Silverado. They are looking at going at some sort of composite type material vs Aluminum later on.

sounds like they want to copy toyota's plastic bed/steel fender bit. NO thanks,not after a taco that had the bed fail and crack at the mounting bolts to the frame as it wore from vibration, then what didn't vibrate in that one from the famed taco lockup converter shod er,

i personally wouldnt buy an f150, let alone any ford for that matter, ford says its to save weight but we all know its not and its just a way for ford to make there truck even cheaper

43128, not ALL of us know that. Is that the reason Chevy is going to lighten its' truck? I think it is because federal fuel mileage requirements are increasing and lighter vehicles use less fuel. I don't own a Ford or Chevy. I know I wouldn't consider a Chevy but that is my bias based on experience. The price of GM parts is outrageous.

43128: Aluminum is usually more expensive to produce and to fabricate than steel.
