Easily, unless you put stupid stuff at the end of your parking bay while also having a snow plow mounted on the truck.

A RCSB F250? Easily. CCLB? Yes, but won't have much room for a workbench.

Measure how long your truck is bumper to bumper and figure it out.

RCSB. I know the length, about 21'. But I've never worked alongside a truck this size in a garage. If I pull in 1.5' away from the garage door, I'm left with ~7' to the wall. With cabinetry/tool boxes on the wall in front of the truck, I'm just wondering how realistic is the loss in functionality. It will probably be fine, but I don't know anyone who has anything to compare.

I have a 30' deep garage, and got the rolling chassis of my crew cab long bed in with the door closed, but had very little room. Really depends what type of work you're gonna be doing. My truck was inches off the garage door, maybe 5' off the opposite wall. If the cab was on it just wouldn't have fit.

If a regular cab short bed is 21', then I don't see you having much more room than I had, let alone if you get a bigger truck in the future. Also consider if you want to put a boat in there to work on it.

30' is probably the bare minimum depth for a working garage IMO. Better to have it 34 or 36' deep. 40' deep from the door with 30' width would be much more comfortable.

You saying front to back it's tight, or side to side?

Regular cab no doubt. I can park my truck in there (x-cab short bed) and still have plenty of room even with cabinets on the end wall.

I need to update, I've got alot done the last month. I'll get pics this weekend

Update, got main wall done and around the door. 95% of the ceiling painted now, and just about all the lights are up. I need 2 more over garage door on a 2nd switch so I can only turn them on when the door is down. And 2 more in other area, which will be 18 total.

And I got real tunes. Old ass Yamaha reciever and even older Sony towers and even with them up high and in the corners it sounds glorious.

I cheated, and did a standout case by the door for light switches and extra plugs. DGAF, it's a shop.

And the "crown molding" (lol) is 1/4" plywood ripped into 4" strips.

Love it. Tunes are crucial, almost as important as good lighting.

My neighbors through the woods (500 yards-ish) just got their shop finished early this year. He went with some big $$$ klipsch in walls against my suggestion. We had volume wars last week, and I won. Bigtime. I've also got an old Polk sub in there.

Older guy that lives behind me rides up on a golf cart "WTF was that??? Are yall okay????" I'll keep it down, but if I want I can make EVERYBODY on this road listen to death metal.
