Yes, I know this. It'* an option not readily available on the Ford lots in NW Florida though. Every single F-150 they have comes with the 4.5 foot beds, and 4 doors. Though, most people don't use those trucks as trucks. They should be buying SUVs insted.

Ah, my bad. The angle makes it look like the 4.5 foot bed.

Ahh ok see around here its the other way round. Most of the time if you want a 4dr with short bed you have to custom order it. Most all of the trucks in the area on lots are 2 or 4dr with 6 or 8ft beds

You're probably in a place where trucks get used as trucks. Where I'm at trucks get lifted, nice shiny chrome rims put on them, fender flares...and never once leave pavement.

I loved that truck of his but he wrecked it. Lost control on a slushy road and wrecked right infront of me (i was following him) he started swapping side to side and couldnt gain control. he sent down into a deep ditch sideways and jumped right out of the otherside into someones yard and took out 3 pine trees and a telephone pole. Pirelli Scorpion tires arent good for anything but dry roads

I'll agree with the Pirelli tires comment. Those things suck.

But we still drove it that way! It was still drivable minus the cracked stock 20" rims, I actually got my Second DUI in that truck about 9 months later
