|K9Kodi||i wont own another short bed truck after owning current long bed. Put a tool box in a short bed and your down to a 4'-4 1/2' bed. put a tool box in a long bed and you still have a 6' bed. I can carry a tool box and my quad for hunting. I remember, with a tool box and 3 hunting buddies and our gear, my truck bed was slam full, good luck with the quad. A few gun and or bow cases, some hunting boxes and over night bags and a short bed is done.|

However, it might be considered advertising with all the vendor logos on it and we don't want to ruffle feathers with the moderators.
Thanks for the advice!

Is this gonna be a stock height, lifted or lowered show truck? What is the theme... Tow rig, offroader, etc? Just because a certain configuration is what is most commonly purchased doesn't make it the best platform to show off a product. I bet if we were all millionaires we would either have bought a different configuration, or better yet, we would own a few different ones. :-)
Here is my vote:
Lifted offroader - ccsb srw (or rclb srw if a duner truck)
Lifted tow rig - mcsb drw on 22.5s
Stock height tow rig - mclb drw on 19.5s
Lowered - rcsb srw tucking the biggest metal and thinnest rubber possible.

Hey fellas, thanks for the reminder that I'm inferior...a shadow of a man...not worth the sweat on a real man's brow. Every once in a while, I start to take pride in myself, and even in my short bed truck. Without you guys around to keep me in line, I might start thinking that I was...I don't know...a hard worker...a good father...a husband who's been worth keeping around for 18 years...
For what it's worth, I absolutely recognize and appreciate the utility of the 8-foot bed. But if I owned one, I wouldn't be able to park my camper in my current (covered) parking. The extra 18" would make it a no-go. I'd either have to find uncovered parking nearby, or move it 10 or 12 miles down the road. Not worth it to me.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta go pee. Sitting down, of course, because I own a shortbed pickup.

Looks like we sparked quite a debate!
Thank you everyone for participating in the poll and the comments are extremely helpful as well! We strive to offer the highest quality products on the market and nobody knows more about these trucks than you guys. The perspective you offer on pickups ensures we deliver the right products to the right market.

I bet if you tried, you could squeeze more than one ATV in your bed :-)
I think his trailer argument is like, for example, picking up enough material to build a 10x20 deck. You could probably fit it all in a 8' bed (especially with a good solid ladder rack)... But I would much rather put it on a trailer.
Now, let's say I needed a 14' 6x6... Well, that 8' bed would look pretty nice haha.

So your telling me it "easier" to hook up a trailer, load the trailer ,then deal with the extra length and and other assorted issues of pulling a trailer around, Then to just have a bed thats big enough?
8ft bed allows me to throw a quad in the back and STILL be able to pull a trailer.......... which means I can haul one more quad then you could with your short bed.
So anyways,back to my point, while there may be a few people that use shortbeds for work most people want the 8ft bed for work use .

|camperman||CCLB for me. Sold truck was a long bed also. Perfer long bed trucks. Makes towing our 5er a breeze. To each their own tho, my way is not right, & your way is not wrong either.|
