    Default What is the bed length of a 2007 Silverado?

    Hello,
    I am new and I joined to ask all you truck smart people a possibly dumb question!
    My boyfriend's birthday is coming up soon and several months back he mentioned he saw a truck with Bushwacker fender flares and he loved them, so I figured that would make a perfect gift for him!
    I'm ordering these: http://www.autoanything.com/fender-f...A1974A0A0.aspx and I have no idea how long his truck bed is. The options are: 5'6", 6'6" and 8'. His truck is a 2007 New body style Z71 LT. Can anyone tell me the bed length so I can make sure I am ordering the correct product?
    I can also post a picture of the truck if that is necessary.

    Thank you for your help!

    I have a few more, but the bed is cut off in them, or it's an awkward angle so I feel like it might be hard to judge the length. I don't mind posting more though if that will help, just let me know.

    That would help,I'm going to take a guess and said it would be either 5'5 or the 6'6.

    From what I understand extended cab pick ups come in 3 available bed lengths, 69.3" , 78.7" and 97.8" Obviously we can rule out the 97.8 (8ft) since we can see it's a short bed truck. So that leaves either the 5.8 ft or the 6.5 ft bed. Without a closer picture it's really difficult to tell for sure which makes everything just a guess! The only thing for sure is its either 69.3" (5.8ft) or 78.7"(6.5ft) , maybe you can casually bring it up in conversation, I know as a truck guy I 'm always willing to spout out gobs of info if my wife shows just the slightest interest in my truck! Sorry I couldn't give you a more definite answer.

    I figured out the length on my bed by laying in it on a campout i did with my dad. The 5'8 short bed is the most common for the trucks now so I'm betting it's the 5'8.

    Wll one of the things i do is look at the gas cap. i think thats the 6'6 ft bed cause mine is the short bed and the gas cap is on the fender flare but on the standard (6'6) bed, the gas cap is in front of the fender flare and to me it looks like in that pic the gas cap is in front so thats just my opinion
