    well, at least i got a reply! i drove one yesterday gonna trade my tundra in but after driving it i said sorry dude no way. the road noise was terriable it shifted really funky it just handled bad and the stereo was crap even with the funny lookin sub in back an this was an 09 with 3400 mls someone bought it an drove it a couple weeks an brought it back, i can see why. i'm not bangin them they look great but i think thats as far as it goes, i'de get a new taco 4x d/c but they eliminated the dark blue i drove one of them i like them

    the tundra probally doubles the towing capicity.i assume the shifting would be the same in a 4x4. road noise could be fixed with dynomat.

    My dad has an 04 Tundra Double Cab and its within inches of the length of his. If you haul a lot which I do the long bed comes in handy but if not go with the short bed. Its much easier to park. I thought that if i got the long bed my quad would fit with the tailgate shut but it is still to long for that. Where do you plan on riding you quad? There are some good places in KY and TN.
