Making trucks from aluminum will decrease towing weight.
Also body dents are a lot harder to remove and the cost can be twice the cost of steel.
And vibration cracking is greatly increased.
But the worse problem is bi metal corrosion.
Every steel nut. bolt. and screw holding the aluminum will start to turn the aluminum into white powder.
All you have to add is salt and water.
The same salt they use for ice on winter roads.
