    I have tried the rear seats of my access cab 08 and I think it's very uncomfortable, I apologize my choice of access cab, and the price of the dbcab long bed and access cab are just 1400$ of difference, I don't know why the price is very similar, I think the acc cab is expensive for what we have.
    Is there a way to make the seats more comfortable on the rear?
    The only thing I love on my access is the look, the seats of the dakota extended is more comfortable than the tacoma, and I can't find a very nice roof rack for my access cab, I want a roof rack with similar look of the original dbcab roof rack they are sweet!! I can't find!
    I would like to trade mine for a dbcab LB

    Then go for it. My buddy bought a new Tacoma and traded it in 4 months later on a Tundra. He only lost about $600 in the deal. It's easier to do that than make your truck into something it isn't.

    Ok so I would like to know if the db cab long bed is very hard to off roading compared to the acc cab because of their differences of length, and for performance and MPG are they very similar or you see big difference(0-60mph).
    Did you know where I can find a very nice roof rack for my access cab looks like the db cab factory?
    thanks

    Performance is close but the double cab does weigh more so it accelerates a bit slower. Same thing for MPGs it will be just a little less.

    Off road the double cab has a longer wheel base so it can't go over as steep a peak as a shorter truck and it has a wider turning radius so really tight trails (or parking spaces) could be an issue.

    It all depends on how you plan on using the truck.

    There's only 155lbs difference in the Curb Weight so it probably won't make a noticable difference in MPG or acceleration. I was surprised to find the DC shortbed is actually 100lbs lighter than the Access cab and 290 lbs lighter than the DB Longbed.

    over more .6 lbs per HP = slightly slower 0 to 60.

    4% more weight takes more fuel to get to a given speed every time you accelerate = slightly less MPG

    Physics FTW! :D

    Technically yes. All I'm saying is you probably won't notice the difference.

    OK I'll concede that once any of the alliance members load the truck down with beer and ammunition it's irrelevant. :rolleyes:

    The long bed allows for 20% more beer and ammo capacity.

    The value of these trucks are strong, for as much as you paid, I would want what worked for me. I would strike up a deal and get a DC, I love mine.

    I have taken a few trips in my double cab with a passenger in the back that would end up falling asleep. If you are considering the trade off I would really consider what you would be using the truck for. I currently have a wife and child so the double cab was really the only way to go. The long bed was also a wise idea for me as I do take some weekend trips scuba diving with my buddies so the extra space for gear is great. There are no noticeable differences in acceleration or stopping. The questions I would ask is really what you would be using the truck for.

    I have choose the access cab because I love the look first and because it will be park more easily but now I begin to really love the look of the db cab LB with roof racks. I have heard that we can make the rear seats of the access cab more comfortable by installing new seats, there are many space but the angle is poor. I really hate the look of the dbcab SB, and you what about your preferences for the look!!
