Generally speaking the difference between an 8' and 6' bed will be in two areas..
A truck with an 8' bed will have a longer wheel base than the truck with a 6' bed.
i.e. the cab to axle is greater. On some trucks, the 8' bed will also be longer in the rear, behind the axle..
The '57-60 8' beds are the exception, they are slightly longer in the front, cab to axle, with a longer overhang in the rear..
