(1) Pickup Box Delete available with Regular Cab 141.6" WB, SuperCab 164.2" WB and Crew Cab 176.0" WB models with 6.2L or 6.7L engines only. Base Curb Weights shown above are for completed pickup truck models with standard equipment and the engine/transmission combination indicated. To adjust the “Base Curb Weight” to reflect Pickup Box Delete, add 20 lbs. for SRW models and 22 lbs. for DRW models to the “Front” weight and subtract 366 lbs. for SRW models and 417 lbs. for DRW models from the “Total” weight (adjust the “Rear” weight by subtracting “Front” from “Total”). This provides the weight effect of deleting the pickup box, rear step bumper and standard spare tire, wheel and carrier.
Please also refer to footnote 3.

Foot note #1 in all the weight spec pages says the same;
Box removal includes the box...rear step bumper....and spare tire....wheel and carrier.


Hey Jim, What did you search for when you found this page? I would love to know how far they went back for DRW Chevy 3500. Fantastic info page on ford.

So for SRW- 366 pounds minus spare tire and wheel, maybe 65 pounds, minus spare tire holder, maybe 25 pounds, minus rear bumper, maybe 40 pounds. For a grand bed weight total of 236 pounds, give or take a few. I would have guessed heavier than that. I can't imagine not carrying a spare tire or having a rear bumper.

Ford specs pages

Open the clicky..
click vehicle specifications...
Just below 2022 specs click on show more which brings up model down to 2014...
Other clickable links to search. One is the Body Builders Book.

It would be nice if Ram and GM had this much tech info on their trucks.

Why a flat bed? This will raise your camper and its COG significantly. There are manufacturers that build pickup beds complete with storage boxes for TCers.


how, the flat bed would sit at the same hight as the box floor?

Well, if that's the case, I certainly stand corrected. However, my statement about counting every calorie, so to speak, still stands.
First, it's not much weight, and second, the weight of the flatbed is far more important, as it will be real easy to make a flatbed "heavy."

It wouldn't be a flat bed per se. It would be more of a utility body with the bed at the stock bed height.

You can't have a true flat bed at the same height as the stock bed because suspension travel allows the wheels to go higher. That's what the wheel wells are for.

Although the suspension is so high on stock trucks these days it almost seems like the wheel wells wouldn't be necessary.

Flat beds don't have wheel wells, and sit high above the wheels. PU beds have wheel wells and sit lower.
