Went from a string of 6.5's to my current truck with the 8' bed and wouldn't have it any other way. I won't go back to a 6.5 as the convenience of the 8' has me sold. I like the bigger fuel tank. I like have a superduty that has the bed to carry some weight and sizable items.
Mine is a daily driver. I go through drive thru's and have no issues with the length. Sure, it might be a pain less than 2% of the time in a tight parking lot. But, honestly, I normally park in no man's land (even when I had 6.5' bed trucks) as I hate inconsiderate people who ding doors.
People have both and love both. If you want to carry bigger items and have more fuel capacity, then don't hesitate. Good luck.
