when did Ford start doing this

the bed on my 450 is shallow

really hadn't paid it much mind till I stole my son's cargo thing that goes in the back of the bed, when I flipped it over onto the tailgate it hung out past the tailgate edge. He has a 2008 F-150

Sure enough the bed is shallower

Is this a recent change???? Been out of the loop......that's what happens when you keep your tucks for 12 yrs before buying a new one The bed depth on my 99 350 is (standard size)

The Recession Caused it

By cutting the Beds down a couple inchs they can take that steel saved and build two or three Mustangs

Ha
I just didn't know and was wondering. I wonder what changes will be made if I keep this one 12 years that I won't realize, lol

anyone know why they did this, I'm not 100 percent sure but I think my 99 350 is deeper also. Would go look but it's back at the dealer so they can try and get the alignment right this time

All jokes aside,I think what happen was the designers lowered the windows to aid in visibility,So in turn they had to lower the bed rails to Keep the truck Lines correct if ya Follow.... My Guess anyway
