    Is the bed in the double cab too small when you put a toolbox in it?

    It's too small for everything! (even with out a toolbox, it's the only complaint, should have gotten a long bed)

    i think even in my longbed it would be to small for a tool box, but i need my bed for bikes, while other people have different uses

    I definately agree to that, although I have hauled everything from plywood, drunk friends, steel targets and furniture in mine. I think it could be 6" wider and another 2-3' longer. Note to self, pay the
    money for a longer bed.

    If street driving and hauling stuff is what you do most... get the long bed. If you want to do a lot of off roading get the short bed with TRD Off Road. I don't carry enough stuff to warrant the long bed as long as I can keep my dog and camping stuff back there I am set.

    Im getting there......
    Man i wish they made a trd offroad long bed Id be all over that.....! even for the extra price!!! and it would look really cool too i think....!

    More rocker panels to cover thats why they make sliders for long bed dbl cabs! :D

    Also I downhill mountain bike... and have to use a roof rack cause taking thru axles off is a pain! I am 6 foot 3 but seriously it sucks to have to lift a 50 pound plus bike on top of a 5ft tall truck... and then get mud all over your paint!:(
