My crew cab *long bed* is the same in length as a mega cab. I don't recall wheelbase, but do feel like they're very close.
And, I'm betting they weight close to the same. Maybe slightly heavier for the MC.
BUT- I'm guessing that what you're saying accounts for the huge difference in payload capacity on the 12s I looked at. Ram did something suspension-wise which makes them ride smoother and more "car-like". It also impacted their posted carrying numbers. I just don't know what it is.
