Does it seem like the metal on our Ram's truck beds are ultra-thin. I swear, after doing some hauling, the bed dents easier than I remember the 2nd gen Rams.

They are real thin. I had a strap of bricks dropped in mine and it dented all over the place. I also had an upper shock mount loose and it nearly split the bed floor. I need line-x some kind of bad.

when i had my muffler taken off my truck i left it loose in the bed, and in my haste to hear my new exhaust at 6000RPM the muffler was digning around in my bed. It actually put a 1" long gash in my bed. It went right through the metal, and put dents all over the place. The metal is VERY thin!

To me, the outter sheetmetal on the 3rd gen Rams seems tougher and thicker. But the sheetmetal inside the bed seems to dent easier. :dunno:

Talkin about the metal on other parts, I was cleaning my windshield with my feet on the bumper, and I slipped slightly, and put an elbow dent in the hood. I was shocked, cause I barely hit it. It's not big, but I laugh at my clumsy ass now...

Glad to see other people saying the same thing about the sheetmetal. My first impression when I got the truck was the metal seemed paper thin. My 93 Chevy was much thicker. I still love my Bee so I will take extra precautions with it. :mad:

I was thinking the same thing, but I thought it it was just me. I will take extra precautions with it, even on the job site. It may be a work truck, but does it have to look like it? Not mine.

The bumpers don't seem much stronger. I slid back into a rock on my drive way on ice last winter, real slow and it put a big dent in the bumper and pushed it back against bodywork. I mean real slow. I was stagered it did that much damage.
