Lets put it like this...I have a LB...and there is a sheet of 4x8 plywood back there and it fits perfectly with the tailgate up. Actually, I have like 2-3 inches of clearance. The 4x8 fits nearly perfectly between the wheel wells too!!!

You can get the 550s with a 10-foot bed, so maybe he's thinking 8 footers are 3/4?

Also, 1-ton GM trucks used to have 9 foot beds, though that was in the 60s and before...
