How much room is in a regular cab? i have not looked at one in person, but have been thinking about buying one. Im 6'5" so i need a little space. I have looked at the chevy reg cab and there just to small. i dont like sitting stright up and down. The tundra looks like there is room to lean the seat back? is there? hows the leg room? anyone around the same hight as me with a RC? do you like it or wish you would have gotten a bigger truck? thanks all.

I love my regular cab. I'm about 6 foot and fit just fine. Yes the seat can lean back, there is a lot of room behind the seat!! I had a 2007 double cab and just never had anyone in the back and I don't miss it. I love the looks of the regular cab but the doors are huge.. I drive a Chevy for work and the Toyota has more room than the Chevy that is for sure.

My friend who is 6'5'' can fully stretch his legs out with plenty of head room too. So I'd say your good to go.

Thanks for the reply's. I like the look of the reg cab over the double. I dont haul people around so there is no need for a 4 door truck. I just want it for a daily driver. and to haul my 82 toyota rock crawler to the trail once a month.( i will be adding bags to the rear for towing) If anyone has any good pick of the inside of the RC i would like to see them, also pics of maybe the seat slid all the way back and reclined. thank you all

If God wanted a pickup truck, it would be a regular cab. They are the least expensive and lightest, which means they accelerate the fastest. Add to this, Toyota makes their largest engine available in regular cabs, as opposed to limiting them to three ton mega buck "performance buses" like GM does. Let the horsepower flow, and let it fit in my garage. :heh:

All body styles have nearly the same ratings in this regard. You will have better rear visibility and overall maneuverability with the regular cab. Plus, when you disconnect the trailer and take the truck to the drag strip, the quarter mile time is better. :nod:

Not much for the drag strip in my DD. But good to know if i wanted to race it, it would do good. Ill be heading to the dealer in about an hour, to talk to them about my new truck. I know they dont have any at all. hope i can find one in CA, or ill have to order form the factory and wait up to 6 weeks for one to be built and shipped to me.

If you get a 5.7 regular cab 2x4 with 8'1" bed, with tow package, your payload is 2065lbs and tow capacity is 10,800 lbs The highest out of all configurations.

well i just got back from the dealer. and there are no reg cabs in CA that i want. there all the work truck module or long bed. so i looked at double cabs. and there arnt many to pick from. CA has a 0% for 5 years and they match up to 3grand on your down payment, good deal. Problem is CA is almost sold out of all there tundra because of the deal. monday my dealer is getting two DC in and i got first pick between the two. well see what they get. The reg cag is what i really want, but a DC will have to do if thats whats there.

The only thing I don't like about the regular cab is that the doors are HUGE, almost to the point of being a PIA in certain places. Otherwise, if you want a regular cab, I wouldn't settle. Try some other dealers, search online on your own, have it shipped in.

I drove two hours to get my RC and that dealer had it shipped in from 5 hours away.

I have been looking all over, There just arnt many to pic from in CA. This deal they got going, sold almost much every one in CA. I would drive 6-8 hours to get one no problem.

Don't forget that the heavier the tow vehicle is, the better it will tow. Same goes for length.

What's the compromise? I duno, but would you want to tow your crawler with a Jeep Wrangler (provided 10K lb towing capacity and 2K+ lb payload)?

Answer is no, the wheel base is too short. Just something else to think about before you make a purchase.

IF you're doing it once a month - for like 10 miles, then no biggie.

I have thought about it alot. the length of the truck wont make that big of a difference, once i put the bags on it wont even drop the rear much at all. The farthest i would tow is about 200miles with my crawler on the trailer. most my trails are within 1 hour drive time or less. I am 98% sure that the reg cab will tow my crawler with no prob.


Thanks for the web site, im going to check it out right now.

Is it a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned vehicle? If it is, and the price is right, go for it! 100k mi/7 yr warranty is awesome!:D
