Luke, Went and drove an HO with 6 speed. Still no Auto's in our area. I learned another disappointing thing, and was wondering about your take on it. <br><br>The dealer said that the bed on the short bed had been shortened from 6 1/2 to 6 ft to accomodate the extra room in the cab. What has been your experience with this in regards to towing a 5th wheel or gooseneck?<br><br>I have a slider now for tight parking, but I'm wondering about just regular towing with the loss of 6&quot; from cab to center of bed. <br><br>My tow vehicle and my town car are the same so I pretty much discount long beds.<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Bill

Actually, I think it was only shortened to 6' 3&quot;.... I don't think it would pose to much of a problem... especially with the slider... ;D<br><br><br>Tony

It gets prety darn tight with a big 5th wheel, I recomend the long bed to as many people as I can. Actually I think I only got 1 sb out there right now. Everybody right here in my neck of the woods want lb's ??? ::)
