I'm getting too used to the husband's company car, so I'm thinking a real 
cab would be nice.

Oh yeah, Toyota gets real high marks from my brother the mechanic (just 
don't get the 6-cylinder automatic yet, he says they still haven't quite 
figured that one out yet).

Has she taken a ride in the standard cab? Where does she put the purse, 
umbrella and cooler for those longer trips?? Or, maybe that's just the 
Ranger where two people is too much at times.

Well, my DINKy brother-in-law has one of those, parks it next to the Land 
Rover -- you just never know how the road to the grocery store will be when 
you live in SoCalifornia I guess.
