Drivin home from work, I end up behind a 2009 or '10 model ford f 150, well I noticed that the whole rear bed and/or end was shaking pretty badly from the left and right. What the heck is up with that?

Ive never notice a Ford or doge or chev or any other truck for that matter have a shaky rear end ........ and in Alberta I say about 65% of people drive trucks mostly new trucks . Riches prov in Canada and alot of truck here have about 30 thousand plus aftermarket stuff . Lifted ,lights, tires ,rims . So I think that truck you where looking at was in a car accident and its wheel alightment was majororly out of line or you where just seeing things lol .

I have a 2008 F-150 Super Crew and when I look in the mirror over sharp "stutter bumps" I swear I can see the bed "jiggle" like it is loose. I have checked, checked, then rechecked and can not find anything loose nor can I get it to move either side to side or up and down. I will look at other trucks closer now

Had a brand new rental crew cab f150 out for a week and the box shook a lot while driving down the highway. Drove me crazy everytime I looked in the sideview mirror. My 2010 Silverado doesn't do that at all!

Ford truck frames seem to have an awful lot of "twist flex" in them. Could this "flexibility" be what makes them so "tough"? Could have a new conspiracy theory going here. :crackup::jester:

I have been driving a 2010 GMC Sierra CCSB Hybrid this week, the box doesn't jiggle like my F-150 and being it has a 6.0 it would beat mine down the 1/4 mile but that is all I can say I liked better. My last truck before the Ford was a 08 GMT900 ECSB Z-71 and I liked it but I gotta say the F-150 is a better truck in my opinion. I towed my trailer up north on Sunday with my Ford then towed it Monday with the company GMC The Ford far outshined the GMC, my Ford is Taller, Wider, Larger Interior, Quieter and just plain feels more like a truck.

With it being a heavyier truck with a good power plant probely towed nicer to. More weight on the truck with less weight of the trailer pusing it around .

To be honest I have only seen the bed shake on Toyotas.

 

 

I'll admit mine does it. I would like to figure out why though. Checked a Ford Truck Forum couldn't find anyone bitching about it so maybe I'm just one of the lucky ones
