Long or Short box?

What are the pro's and cons about a long box or a short box, from 81-87, I'm trying to decide which style to buy thanks,

p.s. it would be a K10

I guess it depends on what your doing with it. My brother loves his shortbed. I and two of my friends have long beds. Tighter trails the short bed would be better. Towing or plowing the long bed would be better. Just my opinion.

if you are only wheeling, the short box helps you get around trails better.

if you plan on using it for moving junk, go long box. the more room the better.

The main advantage I see in long bed trucks is the ablitly to put a toolbox on but still haul a fourwheeler without having to put the tailgate down.
