Aluminum was Fords compromise with the Feds instead of cardboard.

I've noticed that my Gen 2 dents a fair bit easier than my Gen 1 from door dings (mother effers) and hail did a number on the roof too. Was actually surprised as I was inspecting the paintless dent repair on the roof how flimsy the whole roof is on a non-moon/sun roof truck. Still love it though.
