    Steel that will be rusted out way before it's time. Nice truck ruined by rusted fenders about the time it's broke in.:mad:

    They all crumple when you wreck 'em.

    I'll take the 700lb weight reduction of Al.

    That commercial reeks of desperation! The bail out boys make a commercial not based in fact but just stupid slap stick! Now let's see what happens when the bears goes after the other cage!

    Wonder if Chevy's "high-strength steel" was high-strength before Ford came out with an aluminum frame truck, or if they just used "regular strength" back then? Seems like they are just inferring steel is always stronger than aluminum. Airliners have been using aircraft aluminum for a long time, and they don't just fall apart every time they hit a bump.
