When I bought the truck the bed was hammered. The owner before me used it to get firewood. I would say 95% of the wood being thrown into the bed hit the side. The flatbed was cheaper than a new bed at the time and I found more use for it. I use it to put skid steer attachments that don't fit on the trailer, Pallets of sod and stone. It is a lot easier to load pallets from the side. We pick up fertilizer by the pallet and just load it onto the flatbed. Hopefully that answers the question.

Black looks great when it's clean but keeping it that way is very hard.

I'm just curious but those chips that add fuel mileage to the truck.. what are you putting extra wear and tear on or whatever. I mean if it was as simple as changing the computer around and you get extra mileage without sacrificing anything the manufacturer would just do that so they could advertise the superior fuel mileage in the first place. So what is the catch?
