    Love to see that but at this point they don't even make a pro in long bed format.

    I would be dumb enough to buy a pro DCLB 6mt if that was the only configuration they came in

    Slim pickens in the MT department. Should be happy they have that option even with all the features sacrificed because of it.

    At this point, I would settle just for pricing and OR color options.

    There really aren't too many features you miss out on by having the MT. The craw control and such kind of require the AT to do their thing, so no surprise that it isn't available on the MTs. I do miss the keyless entry and start though and I know they can do it because they have it on their MT 86. I'm most thankful though that you can get all the upgrades in the Premium and Tech packages and still get the MT. Most manufacturers that offer the MT will only give it to you on their base package vehicles so you miss out on the bells and whistles. Thank Toyota that they don't do that and end up only offering the MT with the 4 cylinder SR or something.

    That being said, I'd be standing in line waiting to get the DCLB if they made it available with the MT!

    Just got back from talking with a friend of mine at a Toyota dealership. He said that they should be getting legit pricing either by the end of this month or early next month. He said it won't be a huge hike in price,but obviously there will be one with the upgrades. They didn't have many 19's left on their lot either,but if push came to shove and I wanted a 19,they could find one that I wanted. They are seriously trying to move those bad boys before the 20's come lol

    Yeah I think I read somewhere that the clutch cancel button on the MT Tacoma's interfere with the push button start aspect. Only one that I'm not sure why they don't do is the lack of JBL on the manual trims on any level. But, I agree that manuals now are one of the extreme of the most basic or high end car offerings.

    Considering DCLBs have trash breakover angles, it really doesnt make sense to have a TRDPRO in a long bed. Whole point of a TRD pro is to be offroad capable, and a long bed basically ruins that no matter how good the rest of the components are. It would probably be embarrasing for Toyota to make a TRDPRO in LB because all the major publications are gonna make fun of it for dragging its belly everywhere.

    Which is sitting on 35s and still dragging its belly everywhere lol. also its a little different because you can slap 37s on it easy and on a taco you basically have to sawzawl your entire front end for that

    Pretty sure factory setup is more like 33's or 31's. It'll fit 35's without much effort.

    But anyway...Bigger tires don't help THAT much with breakover.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that even a DCLB would still be a foot shorter, wheelbase-wise, than a Gladiator. Those things are f'n trains.

    they help in that they move your belly further from the ground, but yeah the fundamental issue is wheelbase. I think its a little different too because there is only one gladiator configuration. I think theres a good reason you don't see any of the current midsized trucks with long beds on their designated top tier offroading models, it just doesnt make logical sense.

    If your goal is hauling, you're gonna forgo big tires, skid plates, etc and get a long bed that can hold stuff. If your goal is to tackle offroad trails, the long bed is a pretty massive disadvantage. I guess they figure if you're a really motivated hauler, you'll just buy some skids, a spacer lift, and scrape. I think that's a very small % of the market.

    But yeah when I saw the gladiator breakover angle was less than a ridgeline, I bout spat out my coffee. That's funny shit right there.

    Yet they offer the OR trim in LB configuration.... I think the reason for the Pro being SB is more fashion of function and they think the look is sportier or something.
