    How long is a stock "A" bed? Would a longer bed look better?

    (Okay, it's 'glass, but it fits and I don't like the "king cab" look;))

    That one looks fine, the proportions look good, imo.

    Looks great the way it is
    A longer box would need a longer wheelbase

    I don't have a bed here to measure right now, but I wouldn't go changing it. The only thing that would make it look better is going back to a normal cab. I'd say leave well enough alone....it looks O.K.

    I would call that a stretched cab or a lengthened cab.

    I would not change anything. A longer bed would look terrible. Nice ride by the way.

    I stretched mine 7" in the doors with a stock bed. But I built my own frame on stock detentions.

    Wish it were mine. It's a shot off their website. Tryin' to make some plans:cool:
     
  13. Does it need a longer bed ?
    No
    Actually I'd cut the bed down a few inches or lengthen the wheelbase a few.

    If you want a longer bed it would definitely need a longer wheel base.

    Neat color !
