    Hello all,
    Long story short, I want a 2010 DC LB bad and I was ready to go in and make the deal when the wife comes up with she doesn't think there is enough room in the back seat.
    Owners please way in and help me out.

    Thanks

    Take it for a test drive and get her in the back seat ;)
    I've got plenty of room. I have a booster seat in mine, that's why I went with the double cab.

    Four people drove all around Ensenada and San Felipe for the Baja500. No one complained of leg room, but you don't get or room for bags, backpack, and camera cases when everyone is in. I was skeptical too after owning an F250 Crew Cab, but its working out OK so far.

    Plenty of room, i have 2 boys, my 18 year old is 6' 2" and my 14 year old is 5' 10" and they are comfortable back there when we all go out, sometimes we even have the dog,she's med size around 45 lbs. and no one complains.
    I went from an 05 access cab to an 09 double cab and it made a big differance!

    It's definitely not a Mega Cab but it does have plenty of leg room IMO. Now if you have adult passengers in the back on a a daily bases I would say it's too small.

    Enough room is very subjective. Whats enough for one person may not be enough for you. I think it has "enough" for what I use it for, but there are times when it would be nice to have a Tundra...

    One of the first things I checked when I bought mine. I'm 6'4" 220 and i fit comfortably. My 3 kids all fit great on trips. Believe me.......more roomy than you might initially think. Have the dealer take YOU on a test drive and sit in the back for the ride. That's what I did.

    I've had 4 adults in my truck with no complaints. Plenty of room as long as the people in the front don't have the seats pushed all the way back but that's the case with most cars and trucks.

    I had 5 male adults (including me) in my truck, and still managed to squeeze my skinny cousin on the back seat. comfortable, no. When my cousin got out there was for everyone else.

    The way I see, buy for you and your families comfort. If your friends bitch about the leg room you can either ride with them in their car, or take separate cars and waste fuel.

    Believe it or not, One of the reasons I sold my Titan DC was to get better back seats for my kids. Sometimes it's not the space, it's how comfortable the seats are. The knee space looked nice to the eyes but better angle and full-sized seats matter most. I never understood why Nissan, with all that room in the back, dediced to make inadequate seats. Wasn't the idea of a DC to carry people in the back? I could never take trips in the Titan because of it.
