That would not be difficult to deal with...
Assuming the bed dimensions are the same and it would mount, I think the new bed is not as deep so it would look funny.
OP: Good idea although I am not sure that the bed makes up the majority of the weight savings, the cab and front end probably account for at least as much weight savings. If the bed was most of the savings, the RCSB would be seeing almost as much weight savings as a SCrew but it is not.
