    Maybe its just me but it seems like its a 90/10 ratio of short to long beds. Am I just not seeing them or should I have gotten the short bed and missed the memo?

    If they offered a Manual Trans in an OR Access Cab then I would have ordered that, so my only choice is a Double Cab Shorty.

    Same. But I still stuck with the auto so I could keep the access cab. :)

    I just could not handle driving an Automatic and I did not want a Sport.

    Only about 10 percent of people want to deal with the longer wheelbase that the DCLBs have. I wanted to take the quad and the jetski.20160805_132707.jpg

    The long bed and the JBL radio are the reasons I didn't buy the Pro model.

    Ive got a 16 DCLB OR in super white. Sitting next to my buddies DCSB OR it seems like it doesn't sit as high. We pulled out the tape and looks are deceiving. We decided the useless side steps on my truck gives it a shorter appearance. I shouldn't say useless, I think they do a good job of keeping rocks off the side of the truck but are in fact useless for what they were initially intended for.

    I was so close to trading mine in after about 2000 miles. Even had the new one picked out. But then stuck with the auto. It's annoying sometimes but I'm glad I stuck with it.

    Agreed


    I really need a LB but I couldn't stand the autotragic, thus I have a 6MT + bed extender

    But my next truck is 5.7L 4WD tundra double cab with 8 feet bed
