Hey Everyone, I'd like to hear peoples opinions on body styles

Everyone post your favorite kind of cab/ bed configuration and why you like it. No right or wrong answers, I just want to hear some opinions. For example, I like a Crew Cab Longbed because the back seats are big enough for comfort, and I've always thought longbeds look better, plus I like the extra room for bikes. Remember, just personal opinion, no right or wrong.

im kinda partial to either a crew cab short box or an extended cab long box depending on what your doing with the truck...

That said, i think a regular cab short box is a cool looking truck....even if it really isnt as functional as the rest....

Regular Cab w/ Short Bed is NOT an option from the factory, but can be had at a premium!

www.earnhartbuild.com

I personally like Regular Cab longbeds the most, but opted for the CrewCab 6 foot bed since I'm always hauling people and going long distances in my truck. It just is more "bearable" after owning 2 single cabs previously. So my favorite is the regcab/long bed but the truck I wanted is a crew cab 6 foot bed because a CC lWB is just too CUMBERSOME when it comes to daily parking for me!

Re: Body Style

Got to have an eight foot bed! The extended cab is also good.
