very true. i could take a sledge hammer to it all day and it wouldnt dent. at all. its a bit heavier then the original bed(altho there isnt much to it, the metal is super thick diamond plate) so theres more traction in mud.
but the down side is, i cant put anything back there unless i tie it down, otherwise it would blow away. for example, i had a FULL bottle of power steering fluid on the back when bought it. when i got home, it wasnt there. haha. the only time it has been actualy usefull is once at work. i pulled an auger half a block. weighs close to 300 pounds, with someone holding the motor down on the bed, and someone holding the back of it up(it was hanging off the bed about 4-5 feet). if i had an actual bed doing that, the paint would have been destroyed.
