But MANY people pull a 5er with a 6'6" bed. As for goosenecks, a 6'6" bed is plenty enough, they'll even work on a 5'6" bed.

Yes know that but, thanks. My question was are they "gonna" offer not "do" they offer a 3500 SB. I was looking for some clarification on the matter of the 2011 SB 3500HD. Thanks DURAtotheMAX.

I would look into a crew cab-short bed dually. With a gooseneck, the bed can be 4' long, it doesn't matter how short it is. I would enjoy having one. Extra capacity of a dually, but with a shorter bed. They are hard enough to park anyway

Cant think of any use for a short bed dually,I think they look strange and defeat the whole purpose.

What we do need is a single cab short bed Dmax. Id buy one!

I see CCSB duallys around here all the time. Ford makes them. The Coast Guard owns a crap load of them.

General Motors isn't allowed to make a dually short bed. Obama said so.I always thought the Dodge 3500 MegaCab shorties looked OK. I actually liked their little round fender flares...like the old Dodge duallys had. Some of these new duallys and their MASSIVE (for looks plus) fenders are too over the top for me.
