    Just wanted to see everybody's opinion on what type of cab they prefer. Right now my personal/work truck is an extended cab. I had a couple regular cab trucks before and I don't think I could ever get another. I love having the room in the back seat for tools, extra clothes, or a dry area for luggage.

    I'm not looking to get another truck, but I just wanted to see what everybody else liked.

    reg cab its getting harder and harder to find a 8 ft bed in anything but a regular cab and to me a 8 ft bed is a must!! not to mention in my opinion i think regular cabs look awsome..

    I agree that an 8' bed is essential. The only problem is once you get into a crew cab the truck just keeps getting longer and can be harder to find a place to park. I agree that it is nice to have that extra room for those items you don't want to put in the bed. For the most part I would rather have that extra 2'-3' from a cab and add it to my trailer and fit in a similar spot.

    As a personal vehicle I have a crew cab with a short bed to be able to go out with friends and family to have more room. For a lawn truck I would have a regular cab with a long bed because I won't send out more then 3 man crew to mow.

    I don't plan on hauling "friends" around in my truck I have a regular cab with a 8ft bed and wouldn't have anything else. If you need a 4 door truck to carry your family you don't need a truck you need a SUV.
    They do make a 4 door with a 8ft bed but you couldn't pull a trailer and turn it around in a 5 acre field.

    For work nothing better then an ol' fashion farm truck reg cab/long bed, enough room inside and enough bed space for everything. IMO

    For work, I prefer regular cab. My 2004 f250 with 2 bucket seats and no center console is actually very roomy. There is plenty of space between and behind the seats for storage.

    I like extended cabs with an 8 foot box, because an 6 foot box is always a bit too small when hauling anything, and then you can always squeeze a couple of people in the back of it when you need to( they don't pay for the truck anyways). But there are very hard to find now where I am, and there is a huge price difference, so I will be buying a reg cab WT model.

    If you ever have passengers, crew cab is the only way to go! Extended cabs are miserable for passengers.
