I think a Mega-Long bed would be very helpful in being able to keep a bed
box in the back and still load up the dirtbike and being able to close the
tail-gate.

My '06 already doesn't fit in my garage and parking in the furthest spot out
is not an issue. But if it would have been an option that year, I definitely
would have bought it

When I traded in my Crewcab long bed GMC I opted for the extra room of the Megacab. LOVE the room but hate the shortbed on at least a weekly basis. Anything from safely hauling plywood, sheetrock, or longer loads became a huge issue. Even packing the bed with camping gear for me and the family became an issue. With a long bed I could get it all in one layer and not worry about it blowing out. With the shortbed on the mega I had to pile it up and put straps or a cargo net over it... If I could afford it I'd gladly pay $6000 to one of the two companies here that stretch them and put 8' beds on them.

I plan to buy a Mega next year, I then will get the long bed conversion..

I would like to see them with different options than the standard bed, like western hauler, or utility box.

I plan to make an ultimate tow rig to tote around a 40 ft. TT across the country.

I wish I had a long bed back...The maga cab is great but it would be better if it had the longbed option.

A 10' bed on a mega-cab would be too long for me. On a regular cab I could see it, however; Around here if some one needs that much feed at one time they either use a trailer or have it delivered.

When I think of a mega-cab, I picture a family of four travelling the country pulling a 5th wheel, or going to weekend rodeos pulling a horse trailer. Also keep in mind that to some families the work/ranch truck also serves as the family vehicle and needs to transport them comfortably. In these situations a long bed is preferred if not necessary.

I know several Ford owners that would have bought a dodge had the mega come with an 8' bed.

I like the Megacab with the longbed. If I could afford one, that is what I'd buy.

I think at the moment a Megacab long bed is a great idea. However, with a regular crewcab longbed supposed to come out in 2010, I think I'd buy the standard crewcab instead of the Megacab, unless pricing is more consistent. I don't think the Megacab would be worth the premium you pay for it.

I heard rumor that the 2010 crew cab was a mega minus the adjusting rear seats. and shorter cab. I know the back seats of my 03 are a JOKE.

I loved the backseat room of my 07 mega cab but really hated the short bed especially towing my fifthwheel camper. I bought the $2500 superglide fifthwheel and that alone filled up the bed...I love my new 2005 quadcab dually, plenty of room. Can even haul a sheet of plywood no problem.

Never understood anything but longbeds on 3/4 and 1 Ton trucks, just seems kind of counter-productive...but to each their own.
