    I am contemplating buying a new truck this year. I think this truck will be a crew cab and 6' bed. Does anyone have a dump insert installed in a 6' bed. If so, do you have pics? Pro's and cons?

    The cons with an 6' bed with dump insert are primarily 25% less bed space. A shortbed pickup IMO is worthless if you plan on putting anything in the bed. I'd rather shorten the cab and lengthen the bed. If you must have a full crewcab, just go for it and get the 8' bed too. It's still not really that long of a rig.
