    No worries; these are easy to convert to 4x4. I was in the same boat.

    They both look very nice! What engines are in either? Being in AZ, 4x4 is hardly necessary...

    I got a double cab simply b/c I have my son. I think it's a great truck and will have it for many years to come. Both are great trucks though, just depends on needs

    Yes, the previous owner put this NASTY hood scoop attached by double sided tape. That was the first thing I did when I bought the truck was take that crap off! With the help of my wife I heated it up with her blow dryer and removed it... came off without any damage thank God!
