Do they even think they make an aluminum that is as tough as steel?

What do you think is in aircraft.

The rear spar in the wing that the landing gear is attached to is aluminum.

Aircraft aluminum is very tough, but expensive.

But, I agree with a previous poster in that the weight loss will be a hamper to traction.

Maybe they can provide in the design attach points under the frame to add weight after you buy the truck.

Probably won't fly with the Fed's.
