    I was bored and thought of this pole because I love the look of the access cab 4x4. Now I own a Double Cab short box and love the functionality of 4 doors. What is everbodys favorite based only on the look?

    I voted access cab, but i'm torn with regular cab as well. Regular cab has that old truck look to it that you don't really see any more when trucks were made solid.

    The regular cab Pre Runner or 4x4 looks completely bad ass. Just for functionality thought, the 4 door is key.

    For me, the access cab looks best. Some of the double cabs look goofy to me, with a short hood, a short bed, and a big ass passenger area. Reminds me of a super stretch limo or something.
    That being said, a full back seat is awesome compared to the access cab's torture back row. And I have seen some DCs that look great with the proper colors/mods.

    After I bought my double short, I fell in love with Access Cabs. I still love my truck and it's a lot more convenient (looks better in the interior too)...Exterior, the Access looks nice.

    Yeah...Function of an Access Cab with more than you and maybe one other person (wife/gf/best friend) is tight. (Like I might need to trade mine in...)

    But looks- They are AWESOME!! Balanced size box to cab, Beefy, And with the 4x4 of Prerunner suspension- Perfect!!

    D-cab L-bed..

    The access cabs are cool, but if I liked that, I would have stayed with my 1st gen.. looks wise, the d-cab short bed (stock) looks wierd.. a lift does so something to it.. I'm actually very much digging my d-cab l-bed with shell..

    DC Short Bed looks awesome. I think they long beds look strange... long and skinny.

    Thinking from a logical point of view the DC long bed would probably be the best choice. The back seat in the access cab is useless and the short bed is more of a big trunk than a bed.
