New Trucks still have the foam in the bed fenders!!

I just checked and the new truck still have the damn spray foam in the rear bed fenders or wheel-well ... what ever you call them.
I have my bed flipped over in my garage right now fixing it up and after taking the metal inner fender out and seeing the crap spray foam shnit they put in there back in 2000 I would have guessed that they noticed the rot problem and came up with a better way.

Nope, they still use the foam crap in the inner fender/bed. SAD

Glad I went with fixing up current bed opposed to new take off replacement seeing as I would run into this again down the road.

Rusty old trucks sell new trucks. Don't forget about the hole behind your cab corners, allowing dirt and water to get in there, causing them to rust out.

Yah it's a joke! My intent was to get to it before it was a huge hole and I think I can save it. After the sand blast there are a few pin holes and it is a little on he thin side but I plan on either body filler or just POR15 and then slap the new 2.5" ATS fender flares over it.
Really sad they it is still used on the new trucks, it's sad to see every ford truck rust in the same spot! I have seen trucks as new as 2008 rusting there, the salt doesn't help it but its foam and it will hold water so it doesn't matter where the truck lives it's going to happen!!
