You can get a long bed megacab if you get a dually.Did you add that 8' bed after you purchased the Mega Cab?
How much time and material did you invest in the mod?
Two reasons it works well for me: 1. I’ve always like being prepared. Carrying tools, tarps, bungies, tow straps, jumper cables, etc. in a bed tool box. Unfortunately it takes up bed space and sometimes gets in the way loading larger items. Now I have 8” of space behind the seats that I can use instead. 2. I have two kids and two dogs that we take camping. The dogs sit in the floorboard with the kids feet. I now have an extra 3” of leg room. Turning radius and fitting in parking spots are a challenge. Longer wheelbase theoretically helps with stability towing a long camper. It’s basically the length of a quad cab long bed, if Ram made such a thing.Those who have them can you tell me why you chose that. When we bought our '11 I thought that was a mega cab it is only a crew, my husband told me they were bigger 😲😲😲 tf you mean bigger?
My brother-in-law has the mega cab on his 3/4 ton. The truck is not his daily driver, and is mainly used on the weekends or for towing their toy hauler. They have no need for an 8' bed, but having a roomy cab works well for them. If he needs 8 feet, he grabs one of his trailers.
We have a 06 5.9L 4x4 3500 single wheel we bought new on 2006. We love the extra cab space to store all sorts of stuff when we had our Artic fox truck camper on board. Plus room for our dog (RIP) that we took with on our adventures. Now the truck is mostly retired but the extra space to safely carry stuff is great. I even set up a bed in back for my husband when he had to travel so he could sleep in the back with the seats down.Those who have them can you tell me why you chose that.

i had a 11 mega cab for yrs, the mega has almost a foot of storage behind the rear seat. with lockers below the floor to store 'stuff' i could lean the rear seat backs forward and put a full size inflatable mattress in for camping. it also has about 6" more leg room for those seated in the rear. i just traded it in on a '20 powerwagon, miss the extra room in the rear but was time for a trade as i had almost 200,000mi. on the '11 mega. in this pic you can see the extended cab behind the rear door.Okay and?. I don't care about extended or quad. Im talking about a mega cab. Maybe you should have read the post correctly.
My 2017 2500 limited 6.7 4X4 mega cab, I love it for all of the extra room. When we go on trips with our two dogs, they have a lot of room with the seats folded down. Also, when we take a trip with our 5th wheel travel trailer, so when we get where we are going and go shopping, I can't put anything in the bed and expect it to be there as we continue to shop with the bed cover removed. When I go shopping, (like black Friday) I have all the room to put the delicate items inside the truck and there are a lot of other reasons. Also, when we go off with other people, they can't get over how much room there is. So, if I ever get another truck, it will be with the mega cab.
"Only a crew" sounds funny to me cause when like six different people that got in my Crew (this is the second) they turn and look at the space and comment on how "big it is". I compared when I bought my first and maybe still holds true still but you lose a couple of features with the mega like MDS and it's only about four inches longer.Those who have them can you tell me why you chose that.

We also have a 2014 ram mega cab duly limited. Apart from the 14 recalls the truck has so far been a good truck although only getting 12 mpg with the diesel. In the Rams defense we do have a lot of stuff strapped to it such as motorcycles boat and a chipper hanging on the back in case we want to chip branches up in our forest to reduce theI love my mega cab! Gives me lots more room in the back for the dog or adult passengers. The reclining seats are a plus for passengers. We use our truck to tow our fifth wheel and typically take extra passengers with us. Makes traveling long distances much nicer for all occupants. With the seats down I can put a LOT of stuff inside to keep it safer and less prone to damage. Used it to bring two slices of redwood tree trunks to Florida to make tables from. Good chance they would have been scratched, damaged and wet in the bed if they would have even fit in front of the hitch. Also moved antique furniture in the back vice the bed. A real mans truck is what you need for your use. Having an 8' bed but needing more interior space didn't match our use and need in a tow vehicle. Lots more uses out there for trucks than hauling something in the bed.
