    ‘Shorter hoods’ tons more room, think abt it- your spending 70 hrs a week in your truck folks! Everything is roomier. Plus it’s lighter, more aerodynamic, better vision, better engineering, more safety features. Why drive a dinosaur???

    Ummm the cab and sleeper size is the same on a short hood as it is on a long hood. The only difference is the hood length.

    You can maybe keep your sarcasm for yourself. Hard to imagine a typo? I meant the 389, sorry for your limited comprehension levels.
