    With the lift and the long bed it’s pushing the “midsize” truck. When I’m next to a stock F150 or a 1st gen tundra they are very close in size.

    I love my long bed. Wouldn’t want a 5 ft bed anymore, I’ve had two in the past but I missed the room. The foot does make a difference hauling lumber, etc.
    OR17TRD is right. The DCLB is a pushing the midsize truck realm. It’s as long as most full sizes.

    Actually the acronym you cite is because Jeeps are the most highly customizable vehicles made. Because of the excessive number of aftermarket modifications possible if desired, you could literally “just empty every pocket” upgrading your Jeep.

    Whoah thanks for all the replies!

    It seems like the short box would be a better fit for me, but it looks like it’s more expensive and the only available TRD package is the TRD pro. Anyone know why this is? Seems odd to me.

    And to the just empty every pocket thing......that IS intended for aftermarket parts, but it’s repairs that are forcing me to empty my pockets at the moment lol. Oddly I’m debating between a Tacoma and Golf GTI. Couldn’t be any more different.

    Is VW doing their $0 $0 $0 deal? I use to make fun of guys who drove those little GTI’s thinking they where badass’ and never even owned the car. Sign and drive boys I use to call them haha.

    This will keep the bridges from burning between Jeep & Toyota...





    EDIT: Most people don't know that the first Toyota's built were made with Jeep parts left there by the U.S.after helping to rebuild Japan after bombing the shit out of them, after WW2...

    Not sure what you mean about the $0 $0 $0 thing, but I'd be financing a purchase rather than leasing. If I go the VW route I'll wait for a 0% event. Unfortunately the Toyota salesperson told me that they don't do 0% events on Tacomas.

    Yeah it’s a lease thing $0 down, $0 at signing, $0 first payment.

    Gotcha. Definitely won't be leasing. I'm not sure how anyone can justify leasing a vehicle.

    Thanks again for the replies everyone.

    If you have a small business or possibly full time courier you can write the entire lease off your taxes..

    Naaa, who doesn't love an old bug, the first 4 wheeled vehicle I started offroading was a '64 bug with 6v system & a 36hp motor to push it around, that thing did great with the weight right over the rear wheels, I still miss it...

    Right, but why not do that and finance instead?
