Personally, you can easily fit 3 full sized 6' adults in rear seat of a DC, so why are you complaining? Just because of looks? Stop whining and sell the DC then and get the crewmax, problem solved. Only way I would ever buy a Crewmax tundra is if the bed length was at least 6'3" but would prefer 6'6" like the DC has now. My opinion: the CM is for the upscale crowd while the DC is the more sensible all around choice serves both purposes the best.
I'm far from upscale.

I have a dc but like the cab on the cm but have to have the bed. Just like every one elce. What we need is a cm with a full bed. Like the 04-06 tundra had. I had a 04 crew cab and it was great! If u can get a dc with a long bed I don't see why u can't get a full bed cm. oh and my sr5 dc has navigation, Bluetooth, steering wheel controls, sonar, and a back up cam that plays on the navigation screen. And I do love my truck.

My entertainment during warmer days is to roll down my back window (and roll up) especially when another brand truck is right behind me. I would pay $3k extra for just being able to see their expression. Heck I do that even during winter sometimes.

No regrets here. Sure I wish the back window when down the same way, other than that I'm DC all the way.

Because it would be a whole new frame size/production line.
They probably figure they have enough configurations as it is and the projected sales of a longbed CM, doesn't justify the expense of manufacturing them.

I hardly find my CM impractical and do not miss my Gen1 longer bed at all. Just yesterday I hauled a lot of items relevant to my work that would not fit in a car and I carried two tall guys in the back without having to cram them in. I haul people more than I do loads but I can't bring home a yard of soil, or a sheet of plywood in a car.

It may be impractical for the lifestyles of some but spot on perfect for others.

Get what you like, keep one hand on the steering wheel and with the other, give the bird to anyone else who cares what you like and drive.

OP, I originally got the 4.6 (longer story) and kept kicking myself for not getting the 5.7. Finally decided I'm keeping this truck for a while and I'd keep beating myself up all the while I had it so I took it back and traded it in for the 5.7 a few weeks later. If you're having thoughts about trading it, either accept the DC now or go trade it. If you can do it before they would have to sell your DC as a used one, it'll be an easy switch but it'll never get cheaper than today to do it.

Exactly. I think, obviously, it has to serve your needs.

I think, OP, if you picked a DC and it suits you, don't regret it. There is largely 2 pieces at play here. You need the cab space or you need the bed space.

If you tow it really doesn't matter which you get. In my case that was exactly it. I needed the cab more than the bed. I need the bed from time to time, but using someone elses analogy (forgive me for not quoting it) over a certain point (hay/steel/etc) you will go for the trailer.

I say enjoy your purchase and remember it won't do everything no matter what you buy!

I like that the back seat can fold up and with back seat mod it can fold down too. I like both but the dc works better for my situation. No kids in the back, only the dog and I carpeted the top of the underseat storage box so she doesn't slide and seats stay clean What ever fits your needs.
btw my 2011 sr5 has bluetooth and steering wheel controls.

But the one thing I don't care for on the DC is the handle for the rear door.
It totally looks out of place.
I think they shoulda used a regular handle or made it a suicide door with a door jamb handle, like the chevy ext cabs.
Well, maybe not, that's inconvenient.
But the way it is now is goofy lookin.


see I think the rear handle is the coolest part . to each his own. The crewmax will not work as well at the DC will if some one gave me a CM I would sell it and purchase a DC.

Well, I make a very modest salary and live in a dumpy house in an even dumpier neighborhood.
And I bought a CM because I could finally afford a new vehicle payment and it was the perfect vehicle for what I do.

Although, I do believe that, now that I DO own a crewmax tundra,....
I basically AM better than everyone.
So, I guess he was right.

It wouldn't be a deal breaker for me.
I was saying that it's the only thing that looks a little off to me. But it's a very insignifigant thing.
Basically, I like the DC.
