It isn't overblown if police officers were killed in those collisions. And the suppression systems were only installed in 2005 and newer CVPIs.
F Series pickups were also very well documented for fuel tank related issues(tank straps rusting out due to salt corrosion)as well. Plenty of law enforcement agencies use those vehicles as well.
