Ford planning built-in tool-box/trunk for next F-series
The good folks over at LLN have posted some neat spy photos of an F-series mule undergoing testing.
As you'll be able to see, they have enclosed the forward-most portion of the bed and given bed-side 'doors' to get at this toolbox/trunk area.
This would be a much more integrated solution than the diamond-plate boxes that many truck buyers purchase to keep their tools/etc secure. The side doors would also make this area more convenient than the top opening design of the aftermarket boxes.
It looks like the race to include differentiating features in the full-size truck market is fully underway.
