    An access cab that uses the wheel base and chassis from the DC LB, so in essence it has an extra long bed.

    Here is a picture I photoshopped of what it would look like. I suppose it could be useful to some people.

    same shit as everyone else
    yes, i drive a chevy with a 8 1/2 foot bed at work all day for no reason. A 4ft bed would be good enough for what i haul around. But its a reg cab with a bed longer then some peoples living rooms so i guess ppl would buy it. But you could never wheel it!:eek:

    Hell yea, and with a least 48" in betewen the wheel wells to be able to carry a shet of plywood or drywall. That would be my perfect truck

    If some one needed it for work I can see how they might want one. For personal use I think it looks kind of ridiculous. The proportions are way off.

    I think the price tag of this type of truck would make it unattractive. The people who I can see wanting the long bed (contractors) would probably rather have a full-size. Could be wrong though, it's happened once before...
