It makes a huge difference, but it isn't 100%. Weight and track play in that as well. Ever tow with a one ton dump truck? It doesn't have much more wheelbase, but it tows great because it's heavy.
I completely agree with you that if you're buying a truck primarily for towing, then yes, get a LWB.
It just pisses me off when you tell me I don't tow enough to know what I'm talking about.
