I’ve never understood the purpose of that stretch... is it simply for looks or is there another reason?

Looks cool with the free added effect of lower mpg and a much larger turning radius.

I had a couple of my trucks stretched so they could accommodate the mounting of equipment on them. I noticed they had a much smoother ride after they had been modified like that.

Late to the dance on this, but was going to reply with what OS offered.

They look cool, but at least for what I do, totally impractical.

Haha back 20 some odd years ago we had a western star that was stretched. That was my favorite truck to drive. It rode like a dream.. much nicer than the Petes we had. But yes they need some room to turn.

Makes mine look short, the only practical side is the ride. I noticied a big difference going from a 230” to a 275” wheelbase. Turning does leave alot to be desired.
