    what do you want pics of? interior? exterior? I have an 06 manual with SB. Mostly the same. Maybe a few minor differences, but probably not anything you can see.

    Married? Kids? Plan on either in the next few years? Want to haul friends places? Anything larger than a small kid or medium sized dog will be cramped in the AC.

    I have a wife and 3 kids so the DC was the only option.

    I have a DC with a 6 speed, took a while getting used to it, but now I love it. There is nothing wrong with the auto. but I like to bang gears, it's my truck, and in my truck there is ALWAYS a clutch ! :D

    What do you want to use the truck for? We own our house and the SB has hauled everything we need: refrigerator, riding mower, beds, kitchen table, washer, dryer, desks, etc. It may be shorter than the LB and AC bed, but I just stack things higher! :laugh: I just added some more D-rings and carry 4 ratchet straps all the time

    [​IMG]

    The bed being 12" shorter helps reduce the turn radius in my driveway, off road on tight trails, AND gives a little more room when I park it in the barn. I know some people with DC LB's have trouble fitting in their garages. Not sure what the size difference is between an AC and DC LB.

    Either way, if you want the manual it's either the AC or DC SB. DC LB is only auto so if you think you'll need a longer bed and want the manual then the AC is your only option. If you want the manual and some more people space then the DC SB is your only option.

    I dont have a lot of things id be using the bed for other then moving out next year. Im leaning towards the doublecab just because of that extra bit of room if i want to bring friends along, or godforbid I have kids in the next few years :p.
