2019 1500 Tradesman Crew
Every truck owner has pondered this question at some point. . . .
Don't forget the poll!5'7" vs 6'4"? I'd presume for most it comes down to utilizing the internal cargo, but you can get a crew cab/long box.
Personal preference, don't like the look(symmetry bias) of the 4th Gen crew cab/shortbox and absolutely despise the 5th Gen quadcab...
There was no option of a larger tank in 2019 MY, a 50gal tank would have swinged my choice in favour of a long box.Have a 2022 Ram 3500 on order. Since it will mainly be used for towing I went with the 8' long bed as it was the only way to get the optional 50gal fuel tank!
Ordered a 2017 2500 from the factory. Exclusively for doing work. Did not need a quad cab as I have a car for the boring stuff. 8' bed is also wider as 8' sheets of drywall and plywood lay flat, between wheel wells allowing for tailgate to close! Shorter cab also allows for more payload in bed and heavier towing due to overall lighter weight of vehicle. Order only took 5 weeks to arrive and I didn't pay for any options that I didn't want.Every truck owner has pondered this question at some point. . . .
