Default F-350 Super Duty 'opinions'

Just curious on your opinions of what is the best looking configuration?

Super Cab
Crew Cab
6' Bed
8' Bed

I'm leaning toward Super Cab with 8' bed.

It all depends on what you plan to use the truck for. I have a F-250, Crew Cab with 6' bed. The truck has a 160" wheel base IIRC. I frequently travel with 4 people or my wife and our 2 dogs, so the super cab doesn't work for me. Regarding the bed, when I carry something it's usually heavy, but not a lot of volume, so I don't need the 8'. The 8' bed is great for carrying a lot of stuff, but my (6' bed) truck takes 3 lanes to make a u-turn. Not sure how big of turning radius the 8' would have, and don't forget pulling the truck into a parking space. These days, parking lots are made for mini-cars, not trucks.

Do you carry a lot of passengers? Dogs? Need to put luggage in the cool cab? Then get a crew cab. If not a double cab.

do you carry a lot of stuff in the bed? If you do then consider an 8 foot bed. If not get a 6.5 foot bed. There are only a handful of times I wish my bed was 8 foot long. I get by fine with a 6.5 foot bed.

Ive owned both supercab and crew cab trucks. The crew cab is more important to me than a long bed so I got a crew cab with a 6.5 foot bed. It meets all my needs.

I have adult kids that only occasionally hop in my truck with the wife and I, so super cab is all I really need. I'm leaning toward the 8' bed because I usually need the room. I'm just wondering how that configuration would look. Having said that, I'm pretty flexible and don't have any etched in stone needs that would dictate functionality over appearance. At 51 years old I can give two shits about functionality. Time to buy a good lookin truck.

The CC looks a lot better. The SC looks like they forgot to install the rest of it or it got squashed. I’ve never opened the back door of my CC trucks and said I wish I had less room.

I took my boys to look at the extra cab/not crew max version of a Tundra yesterday. My 9yo son took one look at it and said I’m not sitting back there.

I have a 2017 F350 SRW Crew Cab Long bed. I think it would look a little unbalanced or unsymmetrical if it had a shorter and smaller cab. The bed is huge. My next truck will be a standard bed for sure. This thing is like driving a bus.

Funny, you have a decade on me but I find the older I get they LESS I care about looks and the MORE I care about function.

Buy the prettiest truck you can find. Hopefully you will get a lot of "likes"

Couple months ago I saw a Ram single cab short bed dually, that thing looked like a truncated fish.

Resale on the crew cab is likely to be better. 8' bed all the way

Mine is a Super Cab with the 8' bed (F 250)
I don't need the longer bed cause mine's a grocery getter but I just like the look and the ride.
The SC has just enough room in back for normal size adults as long as it's not a long trip. The opposing doors make loading / unloading groceries or luggage super easy.
Down side of the 8' bed is it takes a 25 acre field to turn it around.

I am old school. I like regular cab, 8' bed. Just bought F250 like this. Regular cabs are a thing of the past on the dealer lots.

Crew Cab with 8' bed would be my first choice, but I live on a real narrow street.

I was gonna mention that. I love my truck but it can be challenging finding parking. The CC and 8’ bed are great but definitely not the ride you wanna be curbside parking in a city....

I have a 2016 super cab, 6.7 long bed, to tow our 35' 5th wheel. I have owned pickups for many, many years, & I wouldn't ever consider a short bed truck.
