    There are 17 or so threads on composite beds. I have reviewed most of them. So far I can't find anyone who has truly ruined or destroyed their composite bed. It's tough as a mofo. Has anyone abused / destroyed their composite bed? If so anyone got pics or stories to share? :)

    I haven't really destroyed mine or anything like that, but that was one of the big selling points. The dealership I bought mine from had a bed separated from a truck and were letting people beat on it with sledge hammers and try to find ways to break it. It is some seriously strong stuff. I have had concrete blocks/chunks dropped and thrown in mine, alot of random lumber and junk, and had one jackass with an axe try to chop a hole in it because I said it was pretty tough. I will try to get pics when I get home from work.

    My bed is all scratched and gouged. A couple of times I loaded it up with 3/4 gravel. I used a square shovel to push the gravel out and that's what did the damage. If I remember, I'll post pics tonight when I get home.
