2013 F150 eco boost 6' or 5' bed

Looking at 2013 F150 they said the super cab with the 6' bed has different chassis then the 5' is this true.. any one have any thoughts about the two ?? Better or worse

Looking at the same truck. Online it says 5.5' or 6.5'?

The 6' bed on my current tundra is perfect...

Had the 5.5 bed on mine. Personally it worked well for me for moving and other small stuff like hauling mulch. I think the 6.5 bed looks un proportional on the f150!

If you use a toolbox like I do there is almost no room left in the 5.5. I'm not sure I could fit my dirtbikes in the bed even with the tailgate down on a 5.5' bed

For looks, the 5.5.

For functionality, the 6.5 all day long.

The 6.5 looks too big, IMO. Farm truck looking...

My F150 has a 6.5 and I would never go with the 5.5. There would be too many occasions where there wouldn't be enough room.
