2000 F350 bed delete or cab chassis

I know my truck did not come with a bed on it new. There is a utility bed on it. I am wanting to put a regular bed on it. How can I tell if the truck was a cab chassis or ordered bed delete?

My cab chassis has the fuel tank in the rear between the frame rails whereas a regular truck has the tank on the outside of the frame rail .... Someone correct me if I'm wrong

Yer on the right track. Top of frame rails will be straight, and measure 9' from back of cab to end of frame if it's cab and chassis truck. If its 8' long, and top humps up over the rear axle, and has mid-ship fuel tank, you can drop a factory bed right on...
