07+ Extended Cab + Extra Short Bed

I've noticed that when building a new 07+ Silverado or Sierra on the Chevy/GMC websites, you can get an extended cab with the extra short 5.7 ft bed that the crew cabs use. Sounds like a good way to get an extended cab with better turn circle and a little less weight. Seems it would have a wheelbase similar to a regular cab long bed ?

Has anyone actually ever seen on of these on the lots or driving around ? I have yet to actually see one.

That sounds cool-it would also help to fit it in the garage. I can't leave my hitch attached and get the door to go down and I have to pull in until I hit the front wall!

Nope, sure haven't.

I've never seen one, I would suspect that it probably won't be a popular option because you're sacrificing bed space. The don't turn too bad with the 6 footer. I am constantly turning mine around on skinny muddy dirt roads. It's a little tricky, but you get used to it.
