    I have a 09 Tacoma 4x4 extended cab and am wanting to install a roll bar. I have been told by my local 4x4 shop they are not available for this model due to the composite bed? Is this true, and if not any ideas on who makes them and where I can get? Thanks, Chris

    Are you looking for a roll bar or a show bar/light bar? There's a big difference.

    If you're going just for looks, there are some threads on this forum where folks have come up with solutions.

    If you're looking for safety in the event of a rollover, there's a ton of information and the composite bed is irrelevant as everything must be welded directly to the frame.
