    Anyone made the switch from a double cab tacoma to an access cab?

    I currently have a DCSB, and love it (my wife drives it daily FML.) Im looking at picking up an access cab to drive on my days off (I have a cop car for work)

    I dunno why I have so fallen in love with them, but I really like them.

    I dont ever haul anyone so really dont need the 4 doors.

    Anyone made the switch? Thoughts, comments etc appreciated.

    no but i can understand your love for the access cab, i think they look the best, have never really cared for any type of 4 door trucks, i love regular cabs too but then there is not much storage space to lock in my valuables. if you have no need for the 4 doors then by all means make the switch!

    I've fit a surprising amount of crap in the back seat of my AC. And you get the benefit of a 6 foot bed, over the SB's 5 which also came in handy on my last move. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably get a DCSB, but the AC is plenty useful.

    I love my AC. Here in colorado people don't want to ride in the back, so I'm not the DD all the time. In SD its a different story... lol

    I'm trading in my '09 Double cab for an '12 Access cab.

    I like the look better, and well, the dogs ride in the back more often than anyone else does.

    I sold my 2001 Double Cab Prerunner for a 2002 Extended Cab 4x4.

    I had a shell on my old truck and have one on my extended cab now. The 6 ft. bed is the way to go if you are hauling stuff/sleeping in it for camping.

    I've been really happy with my Extended Cab.

    sometimes i wish I bought a double cab. I guess you could say that I was cheap when buying my taco and didn't wanna pay the extra 4 grand for two doors. If you don't have any kids at home and aren't hauling a bunch of friends around I bet you would love the access cab. I'm still trying to decided if I like a canopy or a toolbox but the extra dry storage is a must. I love my access cab and don't plan on having a family for awhile so it works for me.

    I bought my 2011 Access Cab thinking I would seldom have the need for the rear seats. Since then, I've traveled from Brooklyn, NY back to NC with a passenger in the back seat and even drove to Charleston, SC with my wife, 16 year old daughter, her best friend, and our 2 dogs.:eek: Sure, it was a tight fit, but not unbearable.
    I love having the extra space in the back for my lunch cooler and tool box. The 6' bed is great and yes, I do think the Access Cab is the best looking Tacoma.

    I have an access cab, there are at least ten other Tacoma in my neighborhood, all DC..
    My last truck was a full size Ram AC(the called it quad) with a full bench seat, but I rarely had passengers. I like the AC, but I didn't have much choice as I bought my truck on eBay.
