    Anyone been on a six hour drive with a single cab with three people? is it super uncomfortable or not bad at all. The three of us in my taco arent big at all so im guessing wont be too bad... just wanted to know who has had experience with a long drive with three people in a single cab. Thanks:)

    Won't be as bad for the driver. The passengers will find it old a lot quicker

    Lol it cant be that bad... Try a 7 hour drive to Cali from AZ with Five people ( 2 are 300lbs, and us three were from 140-190 ) in a Coralla rental!!! It SUCKEEDDD!!

    But x2 for the guy above me ^^^^^^

    OOHHH might i add that the driver was also DRUNK!! He drank an entire bottle of 100 Proof Southern Comfort! It was sooo SCARY. Eventually we kicked him out when we got to the gas station in blythe :eek:

    I had a similar experience buddies truck broke down so I picked them up in my club cab dakota (backseat was occupied by subs) so we sat 3 across in the bench seat total of 600lbs pls and it was shoulder to shoulder cramped for 30 minutes couldnt imagine 6 hours. But if its 3 generally small people I think it would be ok.

    Depends on if its an auto or stick. I hated long drives with 3 people in my ranger because it was a stick. My friend's ranger wasn't bad because it was an auto. Ac makes it even more tolerable.

    I did four nights with 3 people on a ski trip down to Jackson. However I have a topper and a bed setup, so we always just had two up front and one in the bed. Not the safest but it worked out.

    The Taco is a bit wider than the Camry, I think, so it shouldn't be worse than three people in the back seat of a sedan. Worst comes to worst, have the two passengers switch places every 2 hours.

    My last trip in my ranger the friend in the middle knew how to shift. Guess he was tired of my elbow hitting him so I just worked the clutch. Was a little nicer...
