Doing the Pumpkin Math
To figure out how many pumpkins your Ford truck bed can hold, just do some simple “pumpkin math.” The average, medium-sized Jack-O-Lantern breed is typically 9 to 10 inches tall, 7 to 10 inches around, and weighs an average of 14 pounds. This translates to about 2.1 pumpkins per cubic foot of cargo space. With that basic info, it’s easy to figure out how many pumpkins with fit in your Ford truck.
