Do you notice a big difference with the long wheelbase? I test drove a short bed but ordered the long bed. I was a bit apprehensive about it, but I liked the additional RamBox space. Parking the short bed wasn't too bad, but then again I've never owned a truck this big before.
yea, I can definitely tell a difference in the turn radius - I need to be more careful in the parking garage where I work - lots of tight turns. At home I have a turnaround in my driveway. It was easy for me to back out of the garage with a tight turn right into the turnaround with my avalanche, but with the 6' 4" Ram it's not possible without making a forward adjustment once out of the garage....

Coming from an avalanche, I am spoiled - whenever I needed to haul 4 x 8 sheets of anything or 8' or 10' studs, I just folded down the back seat, dropped the back wall and loaded it up - very easy [very sad to see that feature not coming back...]. I was concerned getting the short bed would really limit what I could easily haul, but I also needed the crew space for the kids, so I opted for the longer wheelbase.

Just make sure it fits in your garage... mine does with about 3 in to spare...
