As the rocks and cargo loads scratch away at the manufacturer protection on the dump truck bed, the weather can get in and cause rust. Rust is when the Iron in your truck bed turns to an orange powder, Iron Oxide. Obviously a powder is not as strong as solid metal, so if it rusts too much, your dump truck bed will develop holes. These holes not only make you lose cargo, they also compromise the structural rigidity of the bed.
