    So, I just traded my 2006 access cab TRD Sport for a 2011 double cab TRD Sport short box. I needed the extra room for when I have a kid.

    Dealer gave me 16000 on a trade, bought the 2011 for 32000.

    My only issue was that I wanted the long box but I had to pull the trigger on this one. Has anyone ever regretted buying the 5 foot box as opposed to the long box? Is it really that much more useful to have an extra foot of bed room?

    Never regretted getting a short bed, IMO the short bed looks better on the double cab.

    if you regret it you can always get the bed extender. then it makes it the same size just gotta have your tail gate down.

    but i love my short bed, tis all i need

    ..I have a list of many things.
    The DCLB looks SICK when its has about 3-6" under it. The DCSB looks great very way and is the same length as the access cab.

    I too thought it was a issue when I first purchased my truck. It turned out not to be a big deal. Leave gate down and strap it in if you must need more room.

    Good luck with truck!!

    Didn't miss the extra length with my 2003, and don't miss it now with the 2011. Besides I also like the looks and handling better.

    I've never wished I bought the long bed. I havea bed extender for those few times I need a 6 ft bed. I like being able to maneuver better on the street and in parking lots. A co-worker of mine has a DCLB and he struggles in our parking lot backing out of a spot; plus it doesn't fit in his garage.

    I don't normally agree with dhk but here I do. Nothing against your new truck op, but to me, nothing says real mother f*king truck like a long bed. Wish the taco had the option... :/

    Throwing an air mattress back there for camping would be nice. Otherwise no regrets at all about getting the DCSB. I've hauled an entire pattio set in the SB, as well as a 6'+ 300 lb treadmil. Get some good ratchet straps and call it good.

    Long bed for utility. Trucks are utility vehicles. Looks come last.
