I'm currently looking at used diesels and finding a bunch of extended cab 3/4 tons, but not a whole lot of regular cab long bed trucks. Right now I have the 8ft box on my chevy, how much will I hate life working out of a 6ft bed? I mostly put palm trimmings in the back and what not. I don't bag clippings or deal with leaves and I will be getting a 6.5x16 open landscape trailer. I wonder if I can get away with it? I don't want a boat of a truck either if you know what I mean.
