What? Double cab pickups 1/2 ton pickups weren't even available in the USA until like 2000.

Umm, that's an extended cab...not a crew cab. F-150 didn't get a crew cab until '01 model year

The heavier duty pickups had them long before that, though, didn't they?

I like it. But it costs soooooo much more than the Tacoma 4x4 double cab V6 that I want. Like $5,000 more.

It's also MUCH larger and comes with a MUCH larger engine.

Yup, but the price of the tundra double cab with off-road package and the like, I can get a Chevy Z71. Both are really nice trucks. Choices choices. I think any three of the [tacoma, tundra, Z71] are very capable capable for off-roading.

I would take the Tacoma over th eothers for offroading.. with a manual of course. Can you get a manual in the Z71? No. Because it's a Chevy.

Too bad you can't get the double cab 4x4 in a manual on the tacoma.

Yah and with the Hydromatic line why would you ever put a WEAK Manual in a fullsize truck. Oh and you can special order it with a manual in it. But have fun with that 1 ton less capable tranny made of aluminum :p

I know people also like to say Manuals are better for offroad, of all my trucks (69 - 79 - 90 -99 and 84 F-150) 3 auto 2 manual, the Auto's were always much better for the fullsize application, when when guys were going through a mudhole and had to shift and got stuck, I just powered right through with my 79. I have NevAr been stuck 4 wheeling once in my life and I started 4x4'n before I was legal to drive. With my manuals I ran into times I had to rock and it came in handy, but with the auto's I was never even placed in that position.

that's not a bad truck... looks like direct comparison to a dak.

same size engine, almost exact same power output also!

But it's actually larger inside and out than the new F-150 Crew Cab or Titan Crew:) All it needs is a bigger motor.
