    since the 6 speed isnt available in the DCLB i have to get the AC and i would like to know the differences between the two (if any) besides the space in the back seat

    Not sure what all you are wanting to know, every little detail? Obvious: seating/room, speaker config., doors, etc. Access Cab comes with long bed, Double Cab you have the choice of short or long. What else you want? That's all I can think of right off hand. To my knowledge the driver & passenger are the same (sans the stick arm rest).

    I'm not 100%, but suspension, engine, drive trains, etc. are all the same as the Double Cabs (except where length matters to stretch it out).

    How necessary is the 6 speed for you? Every vehicle I had owned was a stick, including my last '06 Access Cab PreRunner. The 6 speed was a bit of a disappointment for me. I never had any of the mechanical problems that other MT owners experience with it, but it never felt right, even after the short throw kit. I am much happier now with the auto in my DCLB.

    i do alot of muddin man
    that stick is so much more convenient to rock that truck back and forth when your trying to get out the hole lol
    plus they are really fun to drive haha theres nothing wrong with getting a standard in my eyes
    theres nothing wrong with the automatic either..its just what i want and if that means getting a AC over a DC then so be it
