I can fit it into most parking spots(I've been parking FAR away from everyone not to get dinged). It's 20 inches longer than my 2001 Suburban was. It's between the GM's Silverado 2500 Crew Short box-237 inches- Crew with long box of 257 inches. Ford Crew with the short box is 245 inches and the long box is 261 inches. The Mega Cab is 247 overall length. Not as big, just right in the middle. Only occassionally have I found that I take a bit over a parking space-normally in areas that have undersized parking spaces around here. If those other trucks can park, then so can the truck I drive.

3900 miles and loving it..
For parking.. I use 2 spaces.. out aways ..to avoid being trapped and dinged haha..
Power is fine so far. Have 4:10 rearend..
I put in 1500 pounds of plywood in the bed and forgot it was there..
Tomorrow the dealer I bought it from installs a cold air intake.
They say if they install it, the warranty is not void.. so on it goes.. $380 installed
They also say they can lift it up to 2 inches , they have to install the lift and the warranty is not void.
I don't know if its the tow package or what but it sits high enough as is for me.
I plan on burning off the stock Michelins 265/70's and then try some 315's if they fit.
Overhead console mpg, never reset,,,,low 10.9 ...high 12.4 ow

I love the new Mega Cab. I am not a fan of the new headlights though. I wish that they would put the 6.1L HEMI in the MC.

The megacabs are nice I think. They look awesome leveled/slight lift and with some meats. They just look so imposing going down the road. I have seen a lot of them recently traveling through the area. I have a few pics here from some that were at my local dealer. The blue one has 20's on it and some AT tires, the black one has 325/60s on some chrome 18"s. Both awesome looking rides, just to give you an idea.

I have a white 1500 SLT 4X4 HEMI mega cab and I love it, There is no caparison in interior room it has more leg room in the rear than in the front. Fuel mileage sucks though but that is to expected with a truck of this size. I average 12-13 mpg city and 15-16 highway

Your fuel economy is the same as my 04 2500 Hemi without the MegaCab. I say that is pretty good.
