    I just hauled a full size 7 foot couch with my DCSB last weekend no problem. Put the tailgate down and strapped her in good. It came right to the end of the tailgate. I can't think of anything I'll ever need to haul longer than that. Honestly if 12 to 24 inches of bed length is going to make or break your hauling capability, then you should probably go up to a full size Tundra in my opinion.

    DCSB is good for a daily driver and general hauler I mean I have access to a diesel with an 8 foot bed if I need serious hauling or a trailer

    I agree. my brother has a double cab(not the crew max) tundra it has a 6.5’ bed plus if you put the tail gate down you probably gain another 16” to 2’ because the bed is so deep.

    Actually now that I think about it; May need to haul some full size 8' sheets of plywood someday, but I'm sure I'll manage to strap them in securely with just a 1 foot overhang.

    Try standing just a bike up in a shortbed... Can't happen unless you go corner to corner. They are useless. Go borrow your friends diesel 8' bed or hook up your trailers short bedders.

    Can't fit skis in the shirt bed that does it for me!
    Long beds truck! Short beds suck!

    Tailgate down I could fit 2-4 dirtbikes no problem. Granted 4 would be very tight but doable. Who gives a crap about skis? Snowboards will fit just fine.

    Because all you short bed guys are in some weird cult where you're all brainwashed into thinking that the same truck with a smaller bed is somehow better than a long bed...

    You know that questionnaire that Toyota sends you after you purchase a vehicle about your experience, and they get into the demographics of the purchaser? A recent breakdown of these surveys found that Short Bed buyers got the most poontang, had bigger johnsons, AND were better educated than Long Bed buyers.

    You know why? Because while Long bedders were bragging about how much shit they can haul in their marginally longer bed, short bedders were smarter by using their larger manhood to smash more vag instead of arguing about cargo capacity.

    bikes fit corner to corner. or just leave the tail gate down.


    and :rofl: skiing. my snowboard fits in my SB end to end. It’s a 153.

    edit: my snowboard along with 3 others will fit in an FJ. proof that snowboarding is better then skiing.

    and figuring out ways to fit the same about of cargo in a smaller space. :D takes brain power to do that. LB guys don’t have that brain power.

    Says the guy who bought a midsize the size of a Suburban? I'd love to watch you get stuck on my property and then have to reverse a half mile because you're too long to turn around.

    Eh, could be worse. I mean I could be an arrogant cop that lives in NY. Damn I just shuddered thinking about it.

    I would take a few of those votes a way. I think a few AC guys have voted long bed then realized this is a DCSB VS DCLB thread. So I think the DCSB is even farther a head. :D
