    im gonna be getting a tacoma in a couple of months. i just want to make sure that im choosing the correct one that suits my needs. ive been looking at the DC TRD sport long bed prerunner. the reason i was going for the sport is cuz i hear that the suspension is a little less wobbly and the long bed helps stabilize it as well. i do have stuff i need to haul but that can be handled by a trailer (which i also hear that the long bed helps in). not looking to do any off road stuff. i just want a smooth ride that can haul all my band equipment.

    Sounds like the DC Sport long bed is the right choice man. The longer wheelbase will allow the truck to be more stable while towing. Make sure you get the towing package (standard on the Sport I think) but you might want to add an electric brake controller before you start towing all the time. Depends on the size of your loads. The truck will serve you well.

    PS Get an Auto!!

    Make sure you go to the "Mods & Tutorials" section and check out the "Towing Guide" this will also give you the info on what the specks are for what you are trying to tow.

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    That is what I own. Fantastic truck, tows really well. Get the factory tow package, it's money well spent for what you get. Get a decent brake controller like a Prodigy or an Odyssey enjoy the ride!
