I don't know about the short bed, but '98 12v's are a little unusual. I wouldn't call them rare, but there aren't that many of them compared to '98 24 valves. I think people get more excited about them than they really justify.

They made them in the shortbed, most call them the "Holy Grail":drool2:. I have a 98 12 valve quad cab 4x4 5 speed long bed, it still looks new and most guys that know about the Holy Grail drool over it. I have had a bunch of people try to buy including Gus from FBD. Gus offered me cash for it.

I don't know if they are "rare" but I have a 98 12v quad cab sb 2wd 5spd. I've heard from a lot of you on here havin' 4x4's or autos but nobody has had a similar setup to mine. They might not be 71 Cuda Convertible rare, but not everybody has one.

98 12v short beds are rare. 98 was the first year for the short bed. Mine is a long bed but I love it either way. Judging from your sig Cummins Power, you have 2 trucks I would love to have

It seems to me about 1 of every 5 98 12v I see is a short bed. It would be interesting to see production numbers.

They are harder to find, but they really aren't that "rare."

I can name probably 15-20 in my general area alone, and yes they are all quadcab/shortbed 12 valves. However, only two of those are Sports (red and Intense Blue), but the red one got sold recently (I was fixing to buy it but quit my job before so...damn)
