A F-550 crewcab with a 84 inch cab axle measurement the shortest body you can go is 11 foot a 550 crewcab with a 60 inch cab axle a 9 foot body is max.

You don't look at wheelbase that is irrevelant your looking at Cab axle measurement. From the back of the cab to the center of the rear axle is the measurement your after. It is what the truck body builders want to know.

A F-550 crewcab with a 84 inch ca will be one long truck you will be making some pretty wide turns. I know for myself I couldn't use a truck with a wheelbase that long no way I could get into the places I go.

I run a F-450 regular cab with a 84 inch ca 165 wheelbase with a 11.5 foot bed and it is the max length I want to go.
