As a carpenter, if it doesn’t hold a sheet of plywood then it’s not a truck.
I’m teasing the rest of you.
You can cut the 4X8 sheets in half 😂

Yeah, but it's only a car if you can't haul a 20' stick of steel tubing with the tailgate shut!
I can on my 22 foot car trailer. I will never own another 8 foot bed. Too hard to park and won't fit in my garage with a crew cab. And it's not a job related truck. I rarely haul anything that won't fit and I have trailers for that. Very few people need a long bed. That's why 80 percent plus oh the non dual rear tire HD trucks are short bed. You are in the minority.

Loaded up the dual axel trailer with 4 bikes for the trip out to the Black Hills.

Tire Wheel Car Land vehicle Vehicle


My guess is between 5,000-5,500lbs between the bikes and the trailer (maybe another 500lbs in the bed). Gas mileage is what you would expect, but it pulled it just fine.
Also, just turned 25,000 miles on the odometer about 25 miles from home.
Very happy with the 2500!

That Sheet of plywood thing was from my dad's generation. He is now 93 years old. I am now 65 years old and it's about how much room is in the back seat for grandkids. I do haul tools and such in the box. Mostly vacation stuff. If I want to haul building materials I hook up a trailer. My son used to call my truck the grandpa truck because I have a topper on it. I just don't have much use for a tenau cover. I have lots of room and don't have to tie every thing down. He has a topper on his now too.
6'6" box works great for me. He drives a 2021 Ram 2500 Cummins diesel. Big car. LOL He is a builder, and pulls an 18' enclosed tool trailer with 7k axles.
