    Can anyone tell me if truck frames are the same length for a short bed as they are for a long bed? Looking for a different truck and want to install a aluminum flatbed on it. Looking at 8' flatbeds. Thanks for your input.

    FYI: NO

    Wheelbase (distance between center of front axle to the center of rear axle) are aprox 20" shorter on a "SHORTBED 6' box than on the full size 8' bed truck.
