Ext Cab vs. 4 door

Hi all,

Looking to purchase my first 99.5+ powerstroke. Owned a 94.5 a few years back, and sure do miss it.

My question is.... How do the rear seats in the ext cab compare to the 4 door? Is there enough room in an ext cab for a grown adult man to sit comftably? I despise longbeds, so a shortbed is really the only way to go for me. Unfortunately, a 4 door shortbed is just about 6" too short for me to haul my bike, and close the tailgate without turning the bike crooked.

So, all you owners out there, are there any complaints/griefs about buying that extended cab instead of the 4 door?

Thanks everyone!

No, I am 6' and even with the front passenger seat forward it is still pretty cramped. Hold out for the four door. Just my 2 pennies.

I'm 6' 3" and i can sit in the back of my own truck comfortably. (it's a supercab)

But if i were you i would opt for the 4 door. Just easier and more convenient. Sure wish i could now.....

Are you big width wise as well ? I'm 6' 3" about 170 lbs and fit fine....well good enough for an hour trip or so.

I had an OBS gasser SuperCab and there wasn't enough room for my friend (6ft + tall) to sit back there. Our wives usually sat back there and he rode shotgun.

In my '01 (a crew cab), not only can he sit back there, he can cross his legs.

I've done carpool runs with work. I can get 5 others in there with plenty of room.

I know I'm comparing OBS vs SuperDuty, but I'd go Crew given the choice.....again.
