Ute Beds are manufactured with T-6, aircraft grade aluminum extrusions that interlock and are bolted together, not welded. Our beds will outlast your truck and can be moved from truck to truck the rest of your life. Also, if you decide to change to a different size truck in the future, we will offer you a trade in value for your old bed. Repairs are easy as well. If you get damage from an accident, it is easy to unbolt damaged panels and other components and replace with new parts. We are so confident in our products that, if you decide you don't like it for some reason, we will buy it back.
