If you really have an 8' box then you should not need a sliding hitch. If you have a crew cab and 6.5' box then you probably will need a slider and/or an extension.
My '06 F-350 has 4 doors and a 8' box. Of course manufacturers vary options from year to year.

Your Superduty has different options. 8' box (long box) and 6'7" box (short box).
An F150 Crew Cab has a long box option and short box option as well but the long box is 6'5" and the short box is 5'5".
The 8' box is only available for regular cab and super cabs in the F150.

So the OP has a 6'5" bed and will likely need a slider even though he has the "long box".
