Definitely doable, but comes with some tradeoffs.To the 6' vs. 8' bed:
Maybe one idea would (could), be to have the rear bench including cab wall fold (or temporary removed), to turn a 6' into a 8' vault??
Now don't slam me, (and I'm no automotive engineer or designer).
Just a crazy idea and probably never doable.
Here's a pickup truck with a folding midgate feature:
The Chevy Avalanche did not win out over conventional pickup trucks, though, despite having this killer feature.
It's definitely possible to make it work, and you can buy a gas-guzzling used truck with this feature today -- if you're willing to drive to where the seller of this semi-rare truck happens to be.
