been there done that. I have looked every where online as well as calling various local as well national truck part stores and no luck. the only thing i have found are side bed steps for 16-present Tacomas and ones for my generation of Tacoma, 2009, they have them only for Crew Cab, which gives you more frame and metal parts that you can either mount one specifically for that car or make a custom mount. Because my car is in the 2nd generation of tacomas, and NOT Crew Cab, there are mostly plastic pieces surronded by a lot of empty space with the frame being really far in.
anyways, this is the first time I have ever posted in any Toyota forum so if any mistakes were made, dont hold the noob accountable haha… take care guys. thanks for all the help/assistance mostly and for a little bit of sarcasm/smart-a$$ comment hahahaha
