It is a 21 foot bed. In the pictures it is moved back about 3 or 4 feet from the cab. It will roll forward to within 4 inches of the cab.

More pictures of progress by Jon Wickham and Associates installing the rollback wrecker bed. The first pictures shows them installing the wiring (had to add additional wires in the traveling loom for work lights. The second picture shows the bed rolled all the way forward for the first time.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
