We'll be celebrating our 50th on Sept. 2 and I really would like to live to see that day and not sure how things would go if I dropped a set of plans on her for a new barn next door On top of that I just had a guy here today to measure and spec a new fence around the perimeter of the property.

I'm just a little leery of pushing her too far....I've been taking her to practice at the range with a pistol in case she wants to get her CCP. She now knows how to operate them and has a key to the gun room...... Just kidding...she's good as gold.

Careful. All this gun talk will get this pickup bed size comparison thread shut down...

Hopefully this isn't construed as "gun talk" by anyone. I mentioned, in passing, shooting at a range, working toward a CCP and my gun room; all are
very passive comments mentioned as I said, "in passing" - not the topic; every comment was related to 6.4 vs 8' beds and their accommodation even in jest.

Sounds like a keeper. I have one of those, too.

To keep the thread on track, get the long bed.

Appears that the short bed/long bed discussion was really driven by a concern of overall length. Have you thought about a SuperCab long bed? For a F250, the SuperCab long bed is only 4" longer than the SuperCrew short bed. The SuperCrew long bed is 16" longer. I just ordered the 2017 F-350 DRW Diesel SuperCab because didn't want the extra length from the crew cab, but still have the back seat.

I didn't order the tailgate ladder as I've added the Amp Research folding step to both of my F-150s. These attach and fold under at the corner of the bumper without any frame modification. I have bad knees and these work great. There is another brand out there which is cheaper and issues with breakage. Amp Research also makes a folding side step which would be great for the 5'er.

Ya, those Amp Research steps are great. I have one to help climb into my "jacked up" 2500HD with the 6'5" bed...

I also Have the AMP steps on my truck. The bed steps are great Cause its a 4X4 350 and I love the way the Cab steps hide when they go up when they deploy they are actually lower than the factory fixed cab steps.
