I picked LB and wish it were even longer. I have zero problems parking and occasionally could use more cargo space.

I don't off-road in the truck and occasionally haul a motorcycle and 2 kids with gear.

Depends on my needs. I have a short bed because I rarely haul anything.

x2. the only way I like the long bed is when they are lifted. Short beds look good lifted or stock.

Shortbed looks better and is easier to park w/o a doubt but I got a long bed and sometimes wish it were longer.

I went with the short bed. I hunt, fish and camp as well as wood work. If I need more hauling capacity I hook up my utility trailer.

I picked the long bed after test driving both. Found the ride in the LB much better. Well really, wife and kid found the ride in the LB much better.
