Side view pictures of standard cab/short beds

As some of you probably know i am looking to buy another truck for primarly offroad use, and keep thinking how nice a shorter wheelbase might be, but cant get over the stubby look of a short bed. So can i see some side shots to help me decide if i could live with one. (come on shortbed guys, convert me!)

It's funny you say 'stubby' because I always thought 8ft beds look goofy. I wish Ford made a an F250/F350 standard cab short bed. (they do in Brazil), I'd line up for one as a daily driver.

I think a lwb only looks good if it has a toolbox and or roll bar in it. But that's just my opinion.

Since these pics were taken I now have the molding on for the side of the bed as well as chrome bottom pieces.
