It would probably be easier to give you more accurate information with more specific information on what you are looking for.
Are you buying new and willing to special order or are you buying used?
You said long bed, well only double cabs have a short/long bed option, access cabs and regualr cabs come with the standard bed. If you are concerned about gas mileage are you considering a V6 or the 4cyl, also manual or auto? That changes your options for bed size and cab configuration also. But you mentioned towing, so you are going to want the tow package and the V6, so that takes out your regular cab options.
So you should probably consider a 4x4, Double Cab, long bed, v6, auto...in either the base package, the trd offroad or just sr5 packages..if you go with a prerunner then get a trd offroad package for the locker.
You should probably make an attempt at using the Toyota.com build your own Tacoma since the options vary by region we can not provide you with accurate information.

This is not going to get you very helpful information around here. I think you need to take the time it took you to make all your post asking for help and do some of your own research first then ask once you are narrowed down what you want/need.
But I did offer my best assistance in your posts.
