    That Rock Warrior looks great, keep us up to date on how the towing goes.

    When I'm done it will have a custom fabbed winch bumper and hopefully a Softtopper.
    My 5.7 pulls the trailer and truck just fine. The roads are pretty flat around here. I was able to get 11.5 mpg with the truck pulling the trailer with the Tacoma on it.

    It also pulls my camper pretty good. For the 600 or so miles a year that I put on it, I see no need for a diesel.

    I haul some pretty heavy material loads and while I should understand that you are supposed to drive the truck differently when doing this...I have ZERO patience! I am very demanding of my vehicles and the tundra nails it every time. I have the 3' ome suspension but the airbags help on heavy loads. I also worry about gas mileage so I bought a prius for that :D

    Thanks,

    Yeah like said before the Half door model is the double cab and the full 4 door is the crew or mega, cant remember what they call it.

    I was actually impressed by the rear seat room on the double cab. I wanted a 4 door and wasnt going to get something with no room in the back. For kids plenty or room and even for average sized adults Its roomy back there.

    I like the console set up, part of the reason why I got this one over other models. Didnt like the bench seat. I have no need for a 6th seat.

    If you're planning on towing, get a diesel.

    The Tundra would be a beast for towing, but get 10 MPG. My ecoboost pulls an 8k lb trailer and I can't tell it's back there, but again 10 MPG if I go over 60 MPH.

    I was considering a diesel. Bit i also had a price range. I wasn't willing to go that old to get a diesel in my price range. If i tow it will be local no more than 60 miles and no mountain towing.

    And on the interiors,

    I like my Tundra interior. same reason i like the tacoma interior. Its a truck and seems more utilitarian.

    Ahh I see. For short distance the gas may be ok. Also depends on the load. My dads hemi toes extremely heavy loads, though not far. He needs a diesel....
