    your question is borderline incomprehensible, but I doubt there is much of any difference in ride quality between them. id guess the sports or offroads have a marginally better ride tho. not sure what the bed length has to do with it.

    You should get a TRD off road...more capable than the TRD sport in stock form!

    Once I pay off my Tacoma I have now, I plan to get a DCLB TRD Sport. If you want the long bed your only option is the TRD Sport. For some reason Toyota decided not to offer the TRD Off Road for the long bed...

    In all fairness , if they made a DCLB Offroad , I would probably get that but the 5' short box is a deal breaker for me

    Was in a hurry when I made original post but I guess my question was is there much difference in ride quality between the different 2013 trim models?Long bed versus short ?

    The short bed sucks for hauling stuff. It really depends on if you are going to be hauling a bunch of gear (bikes, camping gear, etc) and your needs for the bed. So Cal parking sucks so a short bed is what I wanted, plus i like it when my big ass surfboard hangs way out the back of my 5' box!

    I suggest you drive all 3 models and see what you like best. I drove a few trucks in all 3 configurations before deciding on the DC TRD OR w/ SB.
    My last tacoma was a 2006 DC SR5 SB. It held plenty of cargo for camping, kayaking, snowmobiling, mtn biking.
    In between the two tacomas, I had a tundra.
    Now there was a bed but it drove like a bus.
    Coming back to a taco, I thought a wanted a LB but after the test drives (even including an Access Cab) I choose the SB.
    It really comes down to your needs & wants. Either choice is a great truck.
