It looks like Dodge does the same as Ford in that they add all of the extra bed length at the front of the bed which means you only need to cut one end off. Most fullsize pickup beds are 6 1/2 feet for the short bed and 8 feet for the long bed so will need to remove about three quarters of an inch from the the area ahead of the wheel wells. If you can find a 1:1 subject to get measurements from you can get the exact amout.
