    My friends gimme crap about only having a 6.5 ft bed. Doesn't bother me, there's always a way to carry those 10' sticks of pipe.

    It's not the size of the bed,
    it's how you use it.

    I doubt you can fit a complete doorway though a DC rear window..... .. . . .. . They are not the same.. The rear window on the CM IS the reason its better than any other Tundra. That is it.. Everything else is personal preference.....

    I guess its just a matter of your personal taste. I think the crewmax will look sick in 2014 when they come in a long bed.

    Reclining seats in the CM is why I went with it rather than the DC. We take some long road trips and my daughters have a lot of room back there to relax. Oldest daughter [I]would[I] prefer an SUV but I didn't want one this time around. 10' pipe? No problem just put them through the large back window when it's rolled down. Been there done that.

    If it helps, I think Crewmax rigs just look weird. To much cab so they just look funny to me. Same with the Tacomas - just wrong. That's my 2 cents anyway.

    I do think they look cool jacked up 6" or more though. It kinda takes away from the overly huge cab / tiny bed / unbalanced / out of proportion look.

    But if you are really that disappointed I say trade it in and take the loss. Whatever makes you happy because life is too short.

    BTW, I think the DC Monster trucks look great though! Haven't seen a CM Monster Truck.

    At that point, I don't think it really matters if it's a Tundra or VW beetle. But here ya go...

    I too was debating this. And I decided on CM on the following reasons - While the double cab may look cooler for a "work truck" look, I'll haul passengers in the backseat far more often then when I'll need the extra space in the bed. Plus, you could get a bed extender. I got that, and I also got this for hauling super long things like kayaks. Often times, when you run out of room in the bed, you can put the extra stuff in the backseat. So the roomier cab can sometimes make up for the shortened bed. Finally, if you want to have a little fun in the backseat, the extra room is very nice.

    Anyway, you need to be honest with yourself and think about what you need more most of the time. I got the CM and couldn't be happier with it.

    I had a 4runner, loved that the rear window rolled down. Had a DC 2011 RockWarrior, wanted more room for passengers. Bought the best of both worlds, got a 2013 CM, couldn't be happier!

    PS- I do agree with Rig Roller though, the CM does need to be jacked at least 6" to look right. I would love to put the Toytec Ultimate coilover lift on my truck, but 3" of lift isn't gonna cut it. It was perfect on my 4runner though.

    I have a CM and I love it! I haul people more then I haul stuff, and most of the time that I'm hauling stuff I'm hauling people too. The room inside the cab is great especially for adult passengers and a lot of what I haul in the bed is for home improvement projects: lumber, tools, pipes, etc. An 8' stick of lumber doesn't fit in a 6.5ft bed much better then a 5.5ft one. I can fit my bike in the back when I need to and other then that I put my toys on a trailer to get them around. Ultimately its a personal preference and in either case you'll end up in a Tundra so you can't lose

    Plus, the CM gives you space to install large subwoofer enclosures/equipment stacks and still have room for passengers!

    My solution is to get both: a Crew Max + a Double Cab with 8 foot box
