Dodge should have offered an 8 foot box if they wanted to really compete in the Crew Cab market.
They have the best Diesel IMO although I loved my two 7.3 powerstrokes. I was one of the many who got saddled with a lemon 6.0 in my 04 F350 and lucky for me, my dealer took it back and let me order my 05 V10. So far so good and I sure hope the new 6.4 dual turbo PSD coming out in 07 will repair Ford's tarnished reputation in the diesel segment of their business.

Well I just happened to have had a Dodge mega cab, SRW 3500 totin' a (est) 32 -34 (maybe even a 36?) ft Cedar Creek 5er pass me on I-40 last week.

I pulled back alongside and as best (safely at 70 mph) as I could, perused the setup and it seemed to me that the end cap lacked about 2- 2 1/2 feet contacting the rear cab. . I followed the unit, hoping that it might pull off somewhere before I had to so that I might get a chance to see things up close a little better, but it didn't happen.

That Cummins seemed to purr right along under no strain and having sat in the rear of a mega cab a few times, I know the folks in the back seat were sure comfortable.

As others have indicated, seems only logical that Dodge would figure this out in a year or two and go with a long bed.
