    Late 60s a neighbor had a long bed crewcab IH. A real family hauler.

    Versus a modern F-350 the front doors and cab is significantly shorter. I bet that the overall length is really close. My 2012 Ram 2500 Crew Long Bed has a 169" WB and an overall length of 259.4" or ~21'7". The fact that that IH is 2wd and sits so low to the ground helps "lengthen" it visually.

    Seems like modern ones are sitting so high now of days you can't really use them as a truck. You have to lift heavy things to chest height just to get them in the bed!

    It's a big reason I've always had 2wd pickups

    There's another reason that my newest pickup is 35 years old at this point. I don't have to give myself a back injury loading and unloading it, and I can actually drive it down most 2-way city streets, without feeling like it's taking up both lanes.

    My one serious complaint about my ‘04 Silverado with overload springs. I carry a step stool so I can get in the bed.
