bent frame, will a 4runner or 2wd frame work

1996 Extended Cab Tacoma 4x4
frame is a little tweaked,
could fix it but didn't know if i could use a frame from
a 2wd ext cab or possibly a 4runner (but it looks like it's a shorter wheelbase)

or am i better off just putting it on my friends frame machine to straighten it out...
(maybe even re-enforce it a little)

thanks in advance for any input

Straightening and reinforcing sounds safer than welding two different frames together, in my opinion.
