    Hahaha I've been sleeping in the truck a little bit... Working on selling the house while I'm away at work... Traveling from home to my new work area. Hopefully it won't be long :pray:
    A perfect excuse for an RTT...

    I have a dclb but I don't think that the lb or the sb look as good as ac. long box looks a little long and short box looks stubby and the fender looks chopped and unfinished .I am a tile contractor so I think the lb is more for my needs I think I would get laughed off job sight if I had the tiny short box. I would like to see a long box made into a dually.

    Use the short bed for work (Pool Service) everyday, no problems.

    Nothing. I have nothing. I have the nothing ........................ Bed Mat, WeatherTech Rain Guards, Ultra Gauge, TW Sticker amongst others, Useless Free OEM Bug Deflector, Flyzeye, OME Kit with 885's and Dakar and Nitro Shocks front and Rear . Tailgate mod, SOS Concepts 1/4" Skid Plate, White LED's interior Dome and Maps, Goodyear Wrangler MTR Kevlar 275/70/17, Wet Okole Seat Covers - full piping in Charcoal Grey, Lamin-X Green Fog light film, 17"x8 -10 offset Level 8 MK6 wheels in Gun Metal Finish, SOS Concepts Sliders W/ Kickout 12/21/14, Stubby antenna, LED reverse lights, lift removed 2/20/15 - making changes and trying to make up my mind
    I had a DCSB 13' model and was very happy to go to a DCLB when I got the 14' model. To me it looks more proportional and is of course more useful. When in doubt DCLB FTMFW!!!!!!!!!!!:D

    don't get me wrong I love my dclb I just think that when they designed the truck they have to start somewhere and the ac was probably it. and it does have a long box

    I prefer the long bed. Better to have it than need it.
