dimensions-wise, all the short beds are virtually the same whether it's Chevy/GMC, Ford, IH or Dodge. Short beds are about 6 to 6 1/2 ft beds. Long beds can be from 7ft 5 to 8ft 1 and even 9ft for the 1 ton types.
A typical shortbed truck will be about 16ft overall length.
A half-ton (3100) may just about fit into a standard sized garage (length wise anyway; you may need to lower it or let the airs in the tyres down if it's too tall!), but a three-quarter-ton (3600) will not fit into a garage!
Managed to fit mine in, it's a bloody tight squeeze getting out the door. I miss judged it and smashed the bloody mirror, let's just say the air turned blue around my house. Have to keep my eyes peeled at supernats for one.
IH fits into a standard garage.
About 6 inches each side through the garage door opening, then a liitle more as you clear the door.
Lengthways, i have about 2 foot left over. Just stop short and push/pull him in to clear garage door sensor. I have a mark on the wall to indicate, bit geeky but saves a rear light cluster.
Height wise, he is lowered so goes in fine.
