The problem i'm having is I feel that once i swap the bed I'll regret it...cause I'm used to the flareside. I'm gonna have to get the filler neck as well. I've been wanting to do this mod but everyones (teachers, dad, uncle, dads employees) been telling me the flareside makes the truck.

I am one of those people.

I dont think the fleet side will look bad, i just think the steppie is badass.

Buy it, try it out for a week and see what you think.

I don't think "trying it out" is worth the money risk

I love mine

Oh and its fiberglass and doesn't rust

Why
If you hit a tree on a trail with a regular bed, you have a dent you can pull out. With fiberglass you just have a fucked up bed.

Then again, if you hit trees you shouldn't be driving in the first place. But accidents happen

Forgot to add this. Found the source of the metallic squeal. A metal shaving was rubbing on the cv axle shaft and causing it. Took the hub off and found it. Then I greased everything. I don't know why ford used the pvh hubs. They should have went straight to live axle. I hate this damn snap ring. Somehow water must've gotten into my hub as well cause i found some rust.
