Hey guys,

I was wondering which you guys think is better, a Crew Cab Long Box or a Crew Cab Short Box.

I want to put a tool box with stacks through it in the box when i get a truck, but i was wondering if you guys think the long box is too long? I want the extra storage and the bigger gas tank... but i was wondering what guys think would be better, long or short.

pictures would help, and be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

If you live out in nowhere land and dont have to worry about parking get a long box. I wanted a cclb but got a ccsb do to that reason. My truck is tough enough to park as it is in a crowed parking lot. (turning radius of the truck sucks also) Cant imagine trying to park a cc with a long box.

BTW, did you notice I blame the truck and not my ability to park it? LOL

I know that ultimatly it does, but I was wondering what other people think. And if I could get pics of some crew cab trucks with toolboxes and stacks, and go from there.

because long box is just to big to park in parking spots, and it bounces way to much in rain or anything

I say short-box as well, unless you are needing to haul a 4wheeler with all the add-on's you want in the bed:drink
