    Why would one order a daycab with that long wheelbase?

    might need the front overhang, or need the length to meet bridge law requirements.

    Rides better.. and doesn’t get pushed around by the trailer as much….

    You’d have to drive a long wheelbase truck to get it…….

    P.S. that truck isn’t really that long …..
