    It's great! I've used the crap out of mine and no issues. Love the pockets near the tailgate.

    It's ok but I would prefer a metal bed, I do like the compartments towards the back though

    I can't see a downfall to having a composite bed. Mine holds a stuff, heavy stuff at that..

    They are nice but stuff will slide around like crazy if u don't get a bed mat. I'm glad my 2012 has tie down anchors up at the front of the bed than just at the tailgate like my '05 did

    well. it doesn't dent. which is really nice. all it does is chip, ive had a few incidents where if it was a metal bed, there would be a huge dent in it. but the composite bed actually held up better; the most damage ive done is an inch long or so chip in the bed.

    Doesn't get as hot on a composite bed. Makes tanning much more enjoyable. :)

    Hmmm... I bet a nice white bedliner mod would help speed up the tanning process.
