Have lived with my 1997 ExCab since 2003. Love it. Have lived for about five months with my buddy's 1998 QC (suicide doors) ... love it more. It's a rougher truck, but the back seat is soooooooooo much more accessible.1995 - Dodge introduces its extended cab, marketed as a "Club Cab"
1998 - Dodge introduces its extended cab WITH suicide doors, marketed it as a "Quad Cab".
2002 - Dodge introduces a new "Quad Cab" with four "conventional doors".
My buddy had a 1997 "Club Cab" which of course, did not have the suicide doors. He mentioned on more than one occassion, that he wished he had the 1998 "Quad Cab". He liked the extra room from his extended cab, but would have loved the ease afforded by having the rear hanging suicide doors.
