    I know this question has been asked many times but this one kinda different.

    I used to have an 08 rcsb nnbs that was just traded back into the dealer and has only roughly 5000 miles more on it than when I traded it for an 06 nbs ecsb. The only reason I even traded was I thought having a kid I needed the extra cab space, now I've decided I think we can make it with just a reg cab.

    My 08 had a ready lift 4 inch and 305/55/20 trail grapps I JUST put on it before trading and my 06 has a pro comp 6 on it with 35x12.5 20s on it.

    The 06 has 36k miles on it now, the 08 has 23k miles and that is probly the most favorite of all my trucks so far. Do I trade back for it???:help:

    Sorry work computer won't let me post pics of said trucks, but both have been posted here before.

    whatever you think will work for you and your family. I strongly believe if your married which i assume you are and that the wife and the kid go with you a lot then the ecsb would be the way to go. However if not and its just the kid and you than the 08 is your choice. I think your better off with the nnbs, much better than the previous but thats my opinion, how come you haven't looked into a nnbs ecsb, just curious? Im not married yet but when i do im glad i will have the little extra room in my nnbs ecsb.

    x2 on the 2008, I might be slightly biased on the rcsb's though, however, as time goes by I really do wish I had a EC.

    for a kid i would never own a regular cab even with the air bag off i would never put a car or toddler seat in the regular cab its just dangerous. so if you plan on bringing your kid any wheres i would stick with the extended cab.

    That EC NBS looks sick! I would go that route. Better to need it and not have it than to not need it and not have it.

    EC is the way to go IMHO.
    It's just a stupid truck after all.
    Kids and family come first. No way around it.

    Yeah the wife said I'm keeping the ec too, and thats that. So I guess no more delimma. It is nice to have the extra space when its raining outside too, we just pile groceries AROUND Jonny that way, lol.

    yea the ec is nice for sure, even for hunting i love how you can load up the rear with rifles and gear. and you can always carry that 3rd person without them sitting right close to you on a long trip, the extra room comes convenient for sure. however single, like myself especially hauling the quad all the time my back seat is like my closet lol, between helmets and riding clothes the space gets takin up quick.

    I would keep the ecsb, make more sense everyday, and looks alot nicer. NNBS are ugly compared to the nbs trucks
