Driving Crew Cab 8ft Bed as a Daily?

Anyone else drive a Crew Cab 8ft bed as a daily? Do you find it a pain in the a55? Any funny stories about driving something that long?

Just bored, sparking up some conversation on this rainy saturday..

I always just park and take up four slots at the grocery store because its easier, and I get too many door dings from other people..

Funny thing is I have an extended cab short box and I still park as far away as possible. People around here think it is funny to park as close as possible. I need to protect my baby...

I go back and forth between a CCLB and CCSB and they definitely suck to park.

I drive mine every day. There isnt a fast food drive through i cant fit it in. Up and over the curbs maybe back up once in a while but its a riot watching peoples faces. most of my friends think im insane driving it everyday but hey shes running 20 MPG and i got a swell job so i can afford to.

I drive mine every single day. No problems, I'll never have a crew cab shortbed- They just don't look right to me. Especially lifted- kinda reminds me of a short bus

The only thing that bugs me about my CCLB is trying to make a U-turn...

Forget it, not gonna happen, might as well go around the block!

I do too.. and its a dually. Its like parking a bus, lukily the truck i drive for work is much longer so my trucks feels like a go cart handling through tight areas. Driving a beer truck thru manhattan and brooklyn really make driving any thing feel easy
