    ok so im in a bit of a dilemma im 19 and about to buy a taco! decided on a 4cyl cause its cheaper and from what i have read people arent disappointed with it, also insurance is cheaper.

    so here is my question

    should i get a 2wd access or 4wd regular cab

    ive gone back and forth and still cant decide and was wonder what y'alls opinions on it is

    i plan on going mudding and drive around on the beach... i live in texas


    also any pointers on how to get a good price on a taco? ive never bought a car before

    I have a reg cab and would love to have the extra space in the access cab for storage. If you can't afford the access cab 4x4 get the reg cab 4x4 for mud and sand. your gonna end up with a tonneau or toolbox with it but they look good imo

    Definitely access cab. You never know when you'll need the extra room or weather protection. Plus it's more seating, even if they aren't the most comfortable seats in the world, it's still more comfortable than having someone sit on your lap.... unless it's a beautiful woman.

    you mention not being able to afford it...think of it this way though. your going to be financing it for what 36 months that makes the different almost invisible over that amount of time. thats my 2 cents good luck with the decision

    Even if you go used? You know, you don't HAVE to buy new. These trucks taken care of last for a long time.

    But, to answer your question, access cab. I would go crazy with no room in a regular cab.

    you could always get an access cab late model for less with some miles on it. What ever you do get 4x4.

    Obviously if you take it off roading you will want the 4x4, but the regular cab stinks. I owned one way back in the day and there is no room to put anything. Having the access is really nice to toss extra stuff for storage. Since you were concerned about the money also, 4x4 tend to run more expensive with insurance costs and maintance. Maybe quote some insurance quotes on the two models and see which is more affordable for your desires. Good luck man!

    i have an A/C and often wish i had just gotten a reg. cab. I dont have kids or a wife and even my "mid sized" truck is sometimes too big for the city i live in.

    i have a reg cab and love it, there is enough room behind the seats for book bags and such, plus is easier to park than an access cab
