Have a friend with a 6 month old "17" F250 CC 4x4. He has said from the get go that the bed dents easily. He is a general contractor and says he wishes he had his "12" back. Today he had to switch hitches and was setting the heavy 2 5/16 over the bedside. Of course these 17's are so damn tall that unless your 6'6" you can't reach the bottom of the bed. So the hitch was dropped about 6" like he has done a hundred times with his "12" Resulted in 2 holes in the bed. Either they need heavier metal in the inner bed or make it out of steel. The bulkhead is also pretty beat up from sliding ladders in the back. He's also disgusted hooking up safety chains but i found a solution for him on here. He used the "12" the same way and had NONE of these issues.
