It still needs a factory long bed option.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

Is it just me or is the fuel door in a different spot? The Mega Cab looks like it is higher and to the front more.

They are both short beds, they offer a long with the crew and not with the Mega cab. I also think the fuel door looks in a different location due to the Mega is a dually. It would help maintain the angle of the pipe. The more I see the pictures the more I am considering getting rid of the 450. Only due to the fact that I do not trust my truck after what the dealer did to it during the Cab removal. I do not want the SCR of the 2011 and am tired of having to leave my truck for extended times. I have been given a 2009, 1500 for a rental, and I think the Dodge interior has either been brought up to the Ford or the Ford has been brought down to the Dodge. Unsure of which one. I just want to see the crew cab before I pull the trigger. Sorry for the rant.

Dont forget that Dodge and Sterling make a 450 equevilent. The 4500/5500 trucks are pretty nice when properly equipped.

I thought they dropped the Sterling line but they do have the 4500 and 5500 available through Dodge..
