How Can Ford Trucks Carry More Now Than They Did Before?

There were those who laughed when Ford announced they were moving to aluminum in the upper body parts of the F line of pickups. However, Ford paid attention to the building concepts used in modern U.S. military ships. The ships were required to carry larger loads above the water line, so the U.S. Navy engineers used heavy steel below the waterline and light aluminum alloys above the waterline to counter the added weight.

Ford looked at the results and asked, "why not us too?" By using a military grade aluminum allow for the cab and bed structure, Ford was able to add more steel to the frame, axles, and body support systems. This meant the truck could carry heavier payloads in each class and take on terrain previously thought to be impossible.
