    a couple guys in another thread said the shortbed on the doublecab 1st-gens could "never haul anything useful" I want to see what that bed was used to haul by your trucks. Mine has hauled MUCH useful stuff-here's only a few examples of loads over 10 years
    1830lbs landscaping materials
    two la-z-boy recliners
    full size matress/box spring
    large desk
    china cabinet
    2 unassembled wood computer desks and 2 unassembled wood file cabinets
    large professional treadmill
    1200lbs frozen turkeys
    1100lbs beef in boxes
    3 8-tier dollies
    half of a grocery store's lunchmeat counter in milk crates
    two long folding tables and a dozen folding chairs

    I could go on but you get the point-this bed is very useful I would say and ALL my hauls were within the confines of a shell! One of these shortbeds OPEN with the bed extender can haul even more! Just as much as a 6' bed. Let's get your shortbed doublecab 1st-gen hauls here.

    First, what is so wrong with an auto I hauled over half the total weight of your truck with it-second, what are a set of skis compared to my examples above?? That's what they make ski racks for right? Are you saying all my examples are "useless things"? You are not making any sense blanketing all short beds as useless.

    All sorts of smart ass unorthodox comments to this thread flashed thru my brain but rather than bore you with those I will say, there have been so many times when I wished my 6" bed was just a little bit longer. You know, those times when you have to lay down the tailgate just so something (long piece of wood, or furniture, or christmas tree) will fit.

    Its at those moments when I feel a bit of pity for my d-cab brethren. So I buck up and make it work. It could be worse, I could only have 5' to work with. :D

    No need for your pity-as you can see (or choose not to see) by the examples I and others listed above (you know-the lists you can't see) a lot of us work well with the 5'1&1/2" quite well-but a whole generation of trucks be damned because STLharry cannot fit his cute lil skis in his truck (which according to him can "barely be called a truck" based on that stupid little demerit) He obviously hasn't had occasion to haul anything BUT his cute lil skis in his super hot 5-speed manual that's better than an auto-oooooooh I'm shivering please
    Oh and if our 1st-gen trucks be damned according to the ski bunny, then what about the bigger SECOND GENERATION trucks here that, thanks to the composite bed only have 4' to work with? Well I guess they're "not trucks at all"..so a whole new generation of trucks...I mean NON TRUCKS that have been used to haul so much for so many folks for so long CAN "BARELY BE CALLED TRUCKS" BECAUSE STLharry CAN'T FIT HIS SKIS IN HIS BED, Oh yeah makes much sense. If ya hate your truck so much get rid of it-or get a ski rack GEES:mad: do ya punch yourself in the face too harry?

    I think my 6' bed is too small. I couldn't imagine it being any shorter, especially since I put the camper top on to sleep in when I'm camping and being 6'0 tall I wouldn't want a 5' bed.

    I make my sort box work, I really like having a double cab. It is definably worth the sacrifice. Then again I do have half ton and 3/4 ton work trucks to use when I need to do anything major..
