I was in the same boat last year before we bought our 2004 Double Cab. I didn't have my mind made up between the 2 styles. I liked the looks and size of the 2001-2004 Tacoma DCabs, but they don't come with a manual trans like the later models. The later models are bigger and have some extra power in addition to the manual trans option. I sacrificed the manual trans for the better looks of the 2001-2004 and the smaller size. I personally don't like the looks of the 2005-2010 and they seemed huge in comparison.
