Extended cab Long bed newbie

Ok so I just got myself an F-150 XLT extended cab long bed and I'm having one hell of a problem with the rear distance perception. This bed is way too long for me to get used to in just one week.

Do any of you guys know any tips that could help me get used to changing lanes without tail-whipping the car I'm passing or knowing how close I am to hitting sometihng when reversing?

I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Well,
If you dont have some already, some of those nifty stick on spot mirrors help tons. Stick em in the corners of your side view mirros and make sure you can see the back corner of your bed. As for backing up and not hitting things thats a tough one if your not used to it just give it some time.
