2015 Ford F-150: The Limits of the Short Bed

by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on March 2, 2016

2015 Ford F-150

In most situations, the short bed on our 2015 Ford F-150 isn't an issue. For this particular home improvement run, however, it was just a little too short.

It mainly comes down to the fact that windows need to stay vertical when you're moving them around like this. They might have fit if I put them in upright and diagonally, but then I wouldn't have had anything to lean them against.

Luckily I was only going a few blocks, so a few moving blankets and some ratchet straps were enough to keep them safely in place. With the tailgate down, I drove real slow and prayed no one felt the need to rear-end me.

I wouldn't consider this kind of situation a dealbreaker when it comes to choosing which bed to get on an F-150. It's just an example of a situation where another foot of space would have made it that much easier.
