    I am just curious why Toyota doesn't have a 2010 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Long Bed Double Cab 4x4 Off Road? Is it something to do with the driveshaft being too long and will not line up with the 6spd? Got any ideas, I heard the autos are great but I like my 6spd manual for off roading in hawaii!

    I don't think you are going to find any Double Cab Off Road autos with the long bed, either.

    I think it's because the truck has a longer body with the bed so I guess thats why Toyota didn't justify making that version... It's harder to wheel because you're going to high center easier.

    Per my dealer w/ the numbers... 8% of Double cabs were 6spd when I bought mine years back. Only a few people buy them in short bed, so they figured w/ 18 configurations already, this one w/ low demand wouldnt be worth it. Off-road LB in auto, thats a No too.
