I bought a 2017 F250 XL super duty crew cab and the paper work and vin show it having a 8' long bed but it actually has a short bed. it had very few miles and no accidents, i like the truck but does anyone have an idea of why this would be. this might be a stupid question but can a short bed fit on a long bed frame? I dont believe so but i thought i would ask.

No. The wheelbase is different for the different bed lengths.

I figured as much so now I’m just trying to understand why a truck that the registration shows having an 8’ bed has a short bed on it

The VIN number does not include information on the vehicle's wheelbase. I've never seen or heard of the bed size or wheelbase information being including on a registration as the vehicle information for registrations and titles is decoded from the VIN number.

Well when you pull the build sheet for that vin it calls out an 8’ bed that’s what’s confusing

If you like, post the VIN number and I'll get you the Window Sticker.

I already looked that up and it’s showing an 8’ bed. I’m not that worried about it I love the truck short bed and all just need to get a slider hitch for it. Just curious on what the deal is that’s all

I'd be checking the VIN # stamped on the frame, there's a chance that the truck you bought is not the truck the VIN number you have was assigned to,,,
