Just like the old dealer scam "we want your truck and think we might be able to keep your payments the same, only you've paid 50% off and they're trying to restart your say 60 months.
Yeah which is why most likely I won't follow through with it. Finances trump all.

I would rather have my vehicle paid off early and possibly have some regret about vehicle choice than reintroduce more debt and a longer pay off period to get a bigger cab.

I may have to chalk this up to a lesson learned.

You'll be fine son....
You'll just be a little slightly tighter for room in 1 area and not as much in another.
Not the end of the world. There's days I think I'd rather have a DCLB, but really the CM is a better fit for me.
We also don't use my truck as a primary family vehicle either.

Just remember....no matter what BS these guys try to feed you, the truth is.....

If you're actually contemplating it, look into selling your truck on Craigslist. I bought a 2014 DC after selling my 2014 Ford crewmax. Thought I liked the DC then decided I wanted crewmax. Sold the DC on craigslist for what I paid for it 6 months and about 8k miles later. Then went and bought a new CM.

In Missouri we have 18 months to buy a new vehicle and put the sold vehicles value towards new vehicle as if it were traded. So I paid taxes on 7k

Your paddle boards, tailgate up, rest them on the tailgate and ratchet them in. Not that difficult.

10-12' board, same thing. Don't want a ticket, tie a red flag to the end of it so you're following the law, then you don't risk a ticket.

I'm not arguing that some people need the extra space. But let's not kid ourselves here and say the crewmax is not capable of the same things a DC is .

Look, I'm not saying everyone with a CM cross shopped minivans, its possible they looked at the Ridgeline too. (Sarc)

I think there have been many threads like this one, its obvious that truck buyers really would prefer to not have to choose. I think the most relevant point of all this is if the engineers would narrow the cowl, or shorten the engine compartment we could have both a CM cab and a 6.5 bed. It doesn't have to be either or.

Perhaps when Tesla designs a truck, we won't need much of a hood at all - the entire length of the vehicle could be useful cab and bed. Toyota, Ford or anyone else's engineers listening???

I have a 07 DC and 3 kids. 13,12 and a 6yr old. The older two have enough room but the 6yr olds car seat is in the middle and it puts his feet in the cup holder. I feel bad for him on long trips because he's kind of bunched up.

My next Tundra will be a Crewmax for sure. I like having the 6.5' bed now but if I need to haul something big I will drop the tailgate or use a trailer.

I have a friend that swore by the DC, and it's 6.5' bed. Almost daily, hauled things that suited fine with tailgate up. He bought a newer Year model DC, and within one year, traded up for a '16 CM. The reason was the interior space.

That said, I considered a DC some years back, but the interior space was the priority because of family. Kids grow up, and they eventually kick their feet too. The extra cab space is hard to beat. The shorter bed isn't a problem for me. Like others, I have a utility trailer for occasional hauling for large items.

Dealer will get back to me on Monday with prices for a crewmax SR5 with S&C, SR5 Upgrade, as well as a limited and Platinum. Just curiosity.
