    Super cab. You dont want them comfortable in the trucks, you want the to want to get out! Ha! And the crew cabs cost more, they arent going to treat it like it costs more.

    super cab for a work truck, they can haul a crew of 6, cost less, are shorter for plowing, but not too comfy for the guys.

    if its my truck i dont really care, i would take any cab configuration
    standard- for plowing
    super cab- somewhere to throw extra gear and papers
    crew cab- somewhere to throw the girlfriend

    Regular cab in my opinion. Not to comfortable and its not often theres a need for more than 3 guys at a job without needing a second truck for something. Regular cabs are better for plowing too in my opinion. Now anything other than a straight work truck, im all for extended or crew cabs but for maintenance only a regular cab 3500 is the way to go.

    a lot of times a 3 man crew is needed for mowing, i really dont like to sit three wide unless two are hot chicks. with a super cab every one has their own space but the guy in back is yellin hurry up!!! cuz his knees hurt from being cramed in.

    i like the look of a super cab short box but i think im going to run ex-dumpers in all trucks so i need long beds.
