Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Nearly all F-150's I've seen of this and similar years in areas where salt is used on the roads during winter experience this problem. Will fail a motor vehicle inspection. Keep the truck undercoated or you will end up replacing the entire bed. That is, assuming you can find one not suffering from the same problem.
