I don't see where extending the frame is gonna hurt the ride quality, seems like the longer the wheel base the better the ride and handling. I'd love to have a mega with an 8 foot bed

I have rode in one. I almost bought one, but things didn't quite work out. If the shop does a good job with alignment you'll never know it wasn't straight from the factory.

If anything it will ride smoother being the added weight think about it rides smooth with a trailer it might only be 2-500 extra pounds but its still more on the suspension which should smooth it out a little more

That is my thoughts on the subject. I know from my short bed to my old man's long bed his rides a lot better.

I have a 2007 5.9 mega cab w/ the 8' bed and the ride is better than original. I love have a normal sized bed!
