Default Super-cab/Extended Cab

What is the difference? Might sound stupid but I have no clue which one I have.

I have 4 doors but is it considered extended or Super?

Extended cab and super cab are the same thing. Ford just calls their extended cab a Supercab.

Its just a Ford thing, kind of how they call a stepside bed a Flareside, and a regular bed a Styleside.

For calls their extended cab a super cab, so they are the same thing. The number of doors doesn't make a difference.

Just like they call the F-250 a super duty, instead of a Heavy duty.

The Super cab is the extended cab with the doors, a truck that is just extended cab has no rear doors

Ford still called it a super cab before they even offered doors.

Ford calls them all supercabs whether there are 2 doors or 4. Where did you get this from?
