    I am still searching for my Tacoma and a car broker has found be an 06 4x4 DC Long Bed. It mostly has what I need however, I am a little concerned about the length of the long bed. Turning radius, parking in my garage, parking in public and well, I prefer the look of the short bed.

    Can anyone tell me what the length of the short bed and the long bed are from bumper to bumper? It would be handy to know If the long bed will fit in my garage.

    At this point in time I've been searching for a truck for about 6 or 7 months and if this one doesn't suit my needs, I'm going to go new.

    Thanks

    You'll get used to it. Mine took a bit, I generally back into tighter parking spots, but thats only because its hard to tell how far the nose sticks out (for me at least), so I don't like to push it like I would in other vehicles into parking spots. I wouldn't have anything less, thats for sure. The long bed has come in more than handy, and theres tons of things that I could in no way haul with a short bed. The double cab part, well thats just nice to have!!! :)

    I don't find my truck difficult to navigate with at all. It turns pretty sharp, it has good visibility and like briangp said, backing up into spots can make things WAY easier, especially with the backup cam :)
