Okay, just to be sure. An extended cab is technically a long bed truck just with a cab on it, right? But since it has the cab on it, and a short bed, it is classified as a short bed? Just wanna get my stuff straight, so it has a 26 gallon tank?

Yes, your truck is the same cab/bed config as my parents and theirs is a 26 gallon. As is mine. Either way, when you're at the pump it feels like you're filling up the Dead Sea.

My response was to this question, the bed size determines the size of the stock gas tank.

An extended cab is technically a long bed truck just with a cab on it, right? But since it has the cab on it, and a short bed, it is classified as a short bed?
