    Toyota claims the 2009 Long Beds are only 55 pounds heavier than the Short Beds.

    How is this possible?

    I'm thinking about the longer frame. Steel is a lot heavier than it appears.

    I know the bed is light.

    I hear what you're saying, it's just hard to believe.

    55 pounds is nothing.
