Gotta give us all of the order details....

Additionally.....think long and hard about your CM purchase. My powder coat has been TERRIBLE on mine.....almost as bad as the CM dealerís willingness to assist.

Do the aluminum beds still rattle apart?

I donít pull anything that requires a 5500 but the cost to go from a 3500 to a 5500 and get the larger brakes, beefy axles, thick frame, and 10lug was worth it to me.

Uh, oh. Mine's been holding up great. Didn't you get yours within a year of mine?

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

I remember reading somewhere awhile back when I was looking for a bed that there were issues with some aluminum beds cracking around the welds from flex. Iíll have to look. On a side note, always been a fan of the western hauler style beds.

Either the same bed in aluminum or, if wanting to stay with steel, look at the Gooseneck brand of flatbeds or Norstar
