Short bed for me.... I did opt for the 18x7 bed extention though so I think I'm covered between it and my 6x12 bed extention. Trailers are easy to load and unload.

edit. LB can’t haul these toys. (well the tail gate would have to be down for the atv, if it could fit between the wheel wells. tail gate on dads tundra has to be down)
I don't off road (bone stock right now) but I've seen some LB's on here that do. I bet there are very few situations where the LB wouldn't compete and that would be extreme off-roading...

Oh... If you need someone to carry your four wheeler for you up a mountain or something just let one of is LB guys know and we'll be happy to help.

I off road my stock truck. only thing i have is terra grapplers. other then that all stock. I have been down some easy ATV trails, and a LB would have been fucked! It never would have made it down as far as i did, and definitely could not have turned around like i had to do. i had to make like a 12+ point turn.


and trailers are for people that have real work and toys that would never fit in a 6’ bed...

So I would have had to make a 15 point turn... No big deal

I went for the short with a bed extender. Best of both worlds IMO.
I do have a tool box though, My truck came with it. I guess that negates my whole argument! LOL
I havent decided whether to keep the box or not. It takes up space but I'm already filling it up with crap!
God I love my Tacoma Though!

EDIT: Bug guard removed and color match grill installed!
