    Drove a Sr5. It was very nice. Will get if the deal is right.. loved the back up camera and wipers with more than one speed. As for supercharging it. She would love it. Her car is a audi s4. She loves to go fast.

    She wouldn't have survived back in the 70s when most all trucks were single cab. But you best trade it in, if the wife ain't happy, nobody is and all she will do is nag you about it until you give in. Get a access cab, I can recline back all the way in mine and take a nice nap if I want to.

    She was on the test drive. She said it would be a nice place to sleep on a road trip

    Went to the dealer. Have to say I hate dealers. Was not able to get a deal that I liked. Had to walk away but i have a feeling he will call me tomorrow. Going to a different dealer tomorrow. Off topic but can you see the traler ball in the backup. It is the only thing that I may need in the sr5 package.

    Yes , it's great for trailers as well as tight spots . I thought it was a gimmick when I first got the truck , now I find I use it all the time .

    I am so happy my gf only has a bus pass for a car and loves Tacomas.

    That dealer will definitely call you back tomorrow and when he does tell him your at another dealership, it makes them give amazing deals I've found.

    Take her to a dealership. Let her pick out the comfort she wants and let her test drive it. You pick out the color and make sure it's a 4door and has the power you need to do the job you want it for. Trade in your truck or out right sell it. You will probably loose a little money on it, but you & your wife will be happy about the joint venture and she can help you drive on trips & be comfortable when she is the passenger. Money is not near as important as happiness.

    OP- this is a good excuse to spend more money :) to get a DCSB.. or..if you really like your truck.. get a camper.. half the price of a Tacoma..
