I replaced my crew cab with the metcalf recently and so far it has been the perfect bag. It cinches small for day use but expands enough for multiday trips. It has just the right amount of pockets (one w/o the lid) and the opening are super versatile. The only thing I would add is the lift kit. I'm 5'8 but with the lift kit heavy loads do feel better.
