Unfortunately, Quad or Club cabs in America are usually like this Paleolithic monster. Which they're great...... If you don't mind spending a small fortune on wheels tires and Diesel.

Nice truck man,

I think the dual cab caught on later in North America, but single cabs were more popular in the 80's and 90's. I rarely ever see trucks over 20 years old (pre-1994) that are dual cab.
And more trucks in the 60's-80's were long bed, used for small businesses or to haul stuff.
I personally prefer long-beds (even though I've only owned a long bed). There's been quite a few situations where I have to load something 7', 8' or even 10' long, and don't even have to put the tailgate down (bonus for loading in the rain or snow).
To me, if you got anything less than a 5' bed, might as well get a van or SUV then - at least your load is covered up. Just my 0.02.

^yeah now get one in the USA. You'll pay out the butt for it. roughly 3x what it'd cost to get a really clean KC.

Finally car is in my possession after a long wait ,,,,,,,,,, check the recent pic after a full service ,,,,,, interior is in its worst state ,,,,,,,, body is in good solid condition ,,,,,,,,, engine is Toyota 2L-T , it’s a turbo version but turbo is been removed ,,,,,,,,, gear box haven’t check till now but it has some oil leaks at drive shaft seal ,,,,,,,,, surprisingly engine wont gave any black smoke , I try couple of times and push the pedal to the metal to see some black puff from exhaust but nothing ,,,, strange ,,,,, but it is giving heavy roar ,,,,,, roar of air intake ,,,,,, which is really annoying while driving ,,,,,,,, today I drive it back home and I feel an head ache because of that continuous heavy roar sound ,,,,,,,
