    Default Crew Max VS Double Cab

    I have been on the fence for awhile now about whether to get a crew max or a double cab. I really like the crew max for the larger rear seats and the ability to be able to storage stuff behind the rear seats but the $4300.00 price difference between the 2 is where i'm hung up on. The bed size isn't a concern since i don't haul to much in the bed. Any of you double cab owners wish you would have got a crew max and how about you crew max owners any regrets?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    I love my CrewMax and the awesome spare available with the rear seats. I have no regrets going with the CM and loosing 1/2 a ft on the size of the bed when compared to my '04 DC. I don't haul a lot of stuff using the bed, so it made perfect sense in my case to go with the CM

    Get the CrewMax You won't regret paying the additional cost

    Good luck.

    Hey Mike,
    I got my double cab instead of waiting on the CrewMax for 2 reasons....1. Is there enough room for my kids (YES)...2. Do I need the larger bed (YES). Price here was about 2000 more but, the wait was 2 months. Double cab it was...Glad I did!!!

    Good idea. I think you'll be happier getting what you want and you'll keep it alot longer. for me, I keep a truck at least 10 yrs or more if it hold up. That's why I bought this one. All I did is add some "GOODIES" as I go to make it my own. GOOD LUCK!!!

    I actually don't like the look of the Crew Max. I am 'downsizing' from a F250 crewcab (full 4 doors, like CM) regular box, and I think the porprotions are all wrong on the CM. It looks like all cab and no box, when I stand back and look at it. I haul a lot of motorcycles and other supplies that I want to be able to lock the tail gate. The CM kind of reminds me of the Ford 'Sport Trac'. Albeit the CM is a big-*** truck, the bed needs to be full sized, In my opinon. Also, I am 6'3" and I fit comfortably in the back of the DC, and I like the fact that the seats fold up, giving the full floor space for my dogs when we travel up to my camping site.

    hello, for me it was easy , i went with the dc because the crewmax bed was not long enough for my four wheeler. you should have seen the salesmans face when prior to ordering my dc he tried to show me a crewcab .as i walked up ,he had the back door open and said "look at all this room back here this is the 1st one in richmond ,va". i closed the door , told him the bed was not big enough for me and said what dc's do you have coming. his smile turned to shock then he recovered and sold me a dc.

    Mine's the standard excuse... Longer box won out over more back seat room. After all... It is a "pick-up truck".

    No regrets on the CM purchase. My criteria was Towing Capacity and Interior Cabin space (3 kids = more room). CM not to be used as a
    work truck, but for family adventures...so the bed space is nice to have but not an important factor.

    The first thing I did when I walked up to my truck with the salesman holding open the drivers door, was open the rear drivers door get in the back seat. I'm a little 6'2 (320lb) guy and if I can fit nicely in the back all's good... The DC was and remains just fine-enough for me, And since I'm the guy that has to pay the $34,500 in monthly payments over the next 6 years, I am more than satisfied driving my choice.. ..

    The double cab vs CrewMax debate was also a tough decision for me (I actually started debating the two before the CrewMax even hit the lot). I wanted the longer bed but wished for more cabin space since I was coming from a F250 supercab 4x4 diesel. Going to the double cab from the F250 s/c would only be gaining me a few inches of rear legroom. In the end, the cabin space won and I got the CrewMax. Now for whatever doesn't fit in the bed, I have a 6x12 tandem axle trailer it will fit on
