    From your experience: which offers the smoother ride on highway, long or short wheelbase?

    I think when my sport was stock it rode like a cloud, although it was only stock for 200 miles or so. I also had an 06 OR, the ride wasnt as good as the 11 sport but still decent for a truck.

    I have owned both. Both were TRD Sport Prerunners, so I'm comparing apples to apples. The long bed rides a little better, in my opinion. As a general rule, any time you increase the wheelbase, the ride will improve.

    I had a DCLB as a loaner and I thought it was smoother than my short bed. Not by much but it felt a little more comfortable at speed.
