    Well the the White Taco is not a sport(Black mirrors, black handles,etc), it's at best a TRD OR..and look where the TRD is! It isn't even in the right location, so it might be SR5 posing as TRD. I like the black one the best, looks like best deal too, assuming interior and exterior are nice in person.

    Why u getting rid of the Jeep? That thing is BEAST.
    My brain draws me to the 05 Red- good price, decent miles, cool color.

    My old mans got a 4door rubicon, so I know what you mean by the '4.0' power. The 3.8 in the Jeep is a dog, the Toyota will run circles around it all day.

    sorry it didnt work out. looks to me like these 2 are the better $ to miles deals on top of havin the long bed. the '06 seems kinda close in spec to yer jeep if thats important. depends though. if ya have kids, the dbl cab and dvd players might be a good call.

    Thats exactly it! The thing is a beast but cant even keep speed on an incline.

    You get more benefits from the taco, wheeling, towing, room, power, ect..

    On that white one the dealer might try to say its a TRD so the price will be higher, but check if it has the TRD seats or overhead compass/temp gauge which is a big give away, if not then its an SR5 and the price probably should be a little lower

    also how did the dealer rip you off? did they give you the jeep back?

    Does the DC do any better than the AC in off road situations due to the more weight in the rear?

    shoudn't have any issues with the mileage. it is a little high, but if you treat it right there is no reason you shouldn't get over 200k on it

    I don't have kids, but I have put large people in the access cab for several 2 hour drives. Done this several times. Sure they're not comfortable, but you gotta ask yourself how often will you have people back there anyway? I personally would feel kinda dumb driving around a 4door truck when 90% of the time the back seats are never used. If you use the bed, than the extra footage on the access cab will come in handy no doubt. I have no idea how I would fit both our 2 motorcycles in a short bed, or how I would have carried a fridge and a tool box at the same time... the list goes on but you get the idea. The majority rule trends toward the DC SB, but I prefer the look of the access cab. Race trucks don't have 4doors (I know doesn't really matter..), less weight w/ access cab, and depending on your life situation, can be more functional.
