I bought my 1999 F250 SD 7.3 early build 9-98 the new body, it was all new so a few recalls ok. One of the recalls was if a somewhat minor crash the bed would come off the truck frame. So the fix was to bolt and cable the bed to the frame, guess what all those cables rusted away to nothing a few years ago I suppose stainless steel cable would coast to much to keep the bed on. The truck has been very good to me and I still own it 6 inch lift 35s 7.3 mods you get it just watch that bed flying off. PS the bed crossmembers are pretty rusty I have new ones but have not tackled that job yet. Any body from ford care, who is responsible if you get hit with a flying bed.
