    I have already decided that I am going to buy a Tacoma 4x4 in about 6 months, but now I am trying to decide which cab option I should get. The AC or DCSB (I don't want the LB wheel base). A little background info. I am a single guy with a 60# Lab that will ride with me at times. I don't foresee wife/children in the near future. I rarely have more than one passenger at a time, if I do have more it is for very short trips.
    I like the AC because the 6' bed is more functional. But I like the DC because my dog likes to ride with her head out the window. I am also going to keep this truck till it dies for its winter driving/hauling capability, so I think the 6' bed would be the better option. I don't really need the extra passenger capacity because I will buy a second vehicle later on if I need more space (for wife, kids, etc). Really all I need is more opinions. Thanks in advance.

    PS: I have searched for similar threads and I just wanted opinions on my particular situation.

    looks to me like you're in favor of the AC.

    AC all the way, your dog can sit in the passenger seat. You don't need a DC for just the dog haha

    DCLB solves your problem .

    If you can't park that , get the AC .

    That wheelbase is a pain in the ass, when you have to park in the parking garage at my hospital.
    And it won't fit in my garage.

    I never have more than once passenger either which is why I got the AC. Plus I wanted the longer bed and didn't want to have to get the DCLB. I don't regret going with the AC at all.

    I was in the same situation as you, single, large dog, no plans for kids, only hauling one person at a time.

    I bought an access cab, and it's been great. What I did, and would recommend you do is take out the seats/console/headrests from the back and build a platform for the dog to sit on. My dog has spent 5 hour trips hanging his head out the back sliding rear window. (there are a coupel pics of what I build in my album)

    go with the access cab, save yourself a couple grand, and have a more functional truck.

    Thanks guys. I just needed people to tell me I wouldn't regret the AC. When I searched most posts said "Get the DC, you will regret getting an AC". I will be buying an AC TRD Sport.

    While I love the 6' bed on my A-cab, if I could go back I think I'd have gone DCLB

    But between DCSB and A-Cab... I kind of need the bed space, but sometimes it would be nice to be able to take more than 1 or 2 people with me on trips, off-roading etc... I keep so much shit stacked in the back that most of the time I can only take one passenger with me. I thought the same, I hardly ever have passengers, but I realized that while that may be true, I would have more passengers if I had the room.

    Tough choice. If you don't need the bed space, I'd say DCSB.

    Same boat as you, got the AC and haven't regreted it for a second. Eventually put a shell on so the dog has a place to hang out if I have to leave her for more than a few minutes, or when she is wet and dirty.
