I like the fact that gm is gonna offer two bed lengths for the new half ton crew. If you were buying one tomorrow, which one would you get and why?

I'd stick with the short bed. Its big enough for anything I ever need to haul around and it still barely fits in the garage.

Between those 2 choices only I'd have to choose the 6'6" bed.  I think the fact that there isn't a crew cab long bed option might be what keeps me from going to a half ton.  That or I might give up the crew for extended longbed.  Still have a few years to go until this truck is replaced.  I hate having a 6'6" bed now, I still miss my 8'

If your gonna use the truck, full length. If your a grocery getter, go for the short bed.

The 6'6" bed for sure, thats the reason i have the extended cab right now instead of a crew. I wanted the longer bed, but no need/funding to go for a 2500.
