    Are there long wheel base and short wheel base K5's or am I being lied to? If there are, what are the measurements?

    It is called a Suburban. And that is not a K5. K10 1/2 ton or K20 3/4 ton, Suburban.

    S series (downsize) Blazers/Jimmys come in long and short wheelbase versions. Late model full size (IFS) Tahoes and Yukons used to come in long and short (now long / 4 door only). As far a '69 - '91 full size, 2 door short wheelbase only. '69 - '72 is 104.5", '73 - '91 is 106".

    There is a 4 door Bronco, that may be considered long bed(4 doors and the top still comes off). I think it's called the Centurion!

    Centurion is the company that did the conversions. They still do conversions on new Ford Pickups, (ie nice interior and paint), they are sold at Ford Dealers.
