Number of Bed Bolts?

When did Ford add 4 extra bed bolts? There are now 10 bed bolts my 2010 Ranger, my 2001 had only 6. When and curious as to why? Just wondering.

'09 is when they did the change. Why? No clue but one thing I do know is the "new" bolts are in the same spots as the bed support crossmember touches the frame.

If I think back now, I remember that the bed of my 2001 Ranger always looked crooked. I guess the 4 extra bolts was the fix?

ALL but 2... lol. 14 does not = 16. lol.



Note: Long bed models use 8 bolts and BL kits include bolts and blocks to cover reg cab/long bed's. Standard '08 and older beds are 6 bolt.
