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...
The short bed only had about 3" total space on either side in my garage. I figured I wouldn't even try to park it in there, which is what pushed me more towards the LWB.
