How about it... my wife an I will have our 4th baby in a few months?  Can any of those trucks seat 3 in front and 3 in back?  We are growing out of our suv, and I'd kinda rather get a pickup rather than a minivan or an even bigger suv.

According to the factories all of the extended and crew cab models do.  I have one of the original size full size extended cab Chevies.  An '89.  I am 6'4", two sons over 6'2", a 13 year old and a 5'9" wife.  10 years ago we all fit easily.  As they say YMMV.

The full size crew and extended (4-6" more now)cabs should do fine if you have bench seats.  Especially if your kids are small.

I just bought a new Dodge Ram Quadcab. It has a very large cab. When I was shopping my roomate took a test drive in one and I got in the back. I am a very large guy and I had no trouble getting in and was comfortable while in there.

You should just hit some dealers and see what fits.

Land Rover Discovery SE7. Seats 7. Not that big for an SUV (compared to the Star Wars droid carriers like the Excursion, Suburban, Escalade and other mega-ton brat haulers).

A Suburban or Tahoe would have a third row of seats which are reasonably comfortable.

Both old and new body F-150 ext cabs or 4 doors will. Just make sure you get the bench seat up front.

A beast? Hardly. I'm sure it's quite a refined, nice SUV, but how much cargo capacity does it have with 7 occupants and how much can it tow? When it comes to actual utility and working ability, those dreaded mega-ton brat haulers weigh supreme. Pun intended. [:)]

Besides, he's already expressed a desire for a pickup. Any medium to full size crew cab with bench seats front and rear should accomodate 6 passengers.
