My 2021 Platinum Powerboost Supercrew 6.5' FX4.
Tires: GRABBER A/TX LT275/70R18
Wheels: Sport Terrain ALPINE black +20mm offset
Stock level. No rubbing.

It's been sitting in the service bay of the dealership since I got it last week (other threads cover my myriad electrical issues). Hope she gets fixed and isn't a total electrical nightmare buyback. Ordered around thanksgiving.

If I get her back, I'll be replacing the chrome on the tow mirror with black caps, and blacking out the side flare chrome.

I am curious why it's so rare for a dealership to carry the longer/standard beds.
The big three refer to their 5 ish foot beds as short beds, why wouldn't they carry the standard size, if they are standard? I ordered mine because I want the size.
Because the crew cab standard bed truck is simply too long for most buyers. A 157" F150 won't even fit in most garages built more than 25 yrs ago, not to mention the additional hassle of getting around town in a truck that's 20.5 ft long. This is why short bed trucks came into being.

That said, I need the standard bed for a camper that I'm getting eventually, so I'll be ordering the extended cab to save 13 inches.

Our XLT Powerboost long bed in Antimater Blue 302a & towing mirrors with chrome caps. Rides like'a cream puff & will snap your neck back if you get 'into it' when you take off from a dead stop. Ya gotta luv'it.

I am debating getting a short bed or std bed, any one have experience with both and can give me their impressions good or bad driving, towing, parking, etc? I recognize some of this might be obvious but I'd figured I ask because you don't know what you don't know.
