    Hello TW members, been following this site for a long time and figured i might as well join considering im buying a tacoma very soon, so many years ago i wrecked my grandfathers tacoma (01 ext cab pre runner)(worst day ever)
    and now im looking at getting another one. was hoping to get some opinions, im debating on whether to get a 4 door or an et cab, i do alot of camping and will need to take alot of gear with me but would also like to have the people coming with be comfy in the back, suggestion on which to get?? oh and id be looking at a 1st gen v6 4x4
    anything helps!
    thanks!

    Welcome. Go for the 4door. Extended cab is really only good for some extra storage if the passengers are older than middle school. Extended cab is not fun to ride for any distance IMO.

    Welcome to TW! I say if your gonna be having a lot of people ride with you, get a 4 door. The extra room never hurts either especially if you have or plan on having kids.

    Welcome to TW! I have a double cab and love it. Mine is a long bed and it's awesome for camping.
