See, I've never cared for them, although I don't really like the look of short beds.

That makes sense because I don't like the looks of long beds..

In all seriousness, though... call someone who *knows* what he's talking about. Bobbie Williams of Sunrise Ford in Fontana, California can help you find out whether the truck you want is available. He's the man.

I never really got the short box DRW thing.
Forget about looks, just what was the purpose?
If I needed to tow a large 5th, I would step up to a DRW, but the short box really complicates the cab clearence.
Weird looking truck and weird choice for someone who tows.

Somebody that tows a big boat but doesn't want to need a football field to manuver it...

short box

i will be towing a 18,000 lb 5th wheel toyhualer. It won't be loaded down to 18k all the time though.

I like the short box,because i don't pull our 5th all the time. I mostly daily drive the truck and its easier in parking spaces and i like they look sportier. They would have looked more sportier with them new fenders.
