The 2011 had the Composite pan, It is working great on my truck.
Sometime in the 2012 model year, Ford changed back over to the stamped metal pan. So if you buy a truck now, thats what you get.

I have it and love it! a quarter turn drain plug=no more stripped bolts! Ford went backward to save on costs. BTW, the 2011's also have the swept guages!

I want a Fumoto valve drain plug something serious, so I have a metal oil pan on order to replace my plastic one, along with the valve. I really don't care that it will have 3 ounces of oil that will remain with each change.

I traded my 02 7.3 for the 6.7 largely because of my rusted oil pan that would have been a cab off repair. I had temporarily fixed it twice.

It looks like ford fixed it twice on my 6.7: plastic pan that looks to be replaceable in situ.
