    Didn you have any chance finding an aftermarket skid plate / engine undercover?
    I seriously damaged it and Toyota sells it for about 300 new.
    It's not worth that much, especially because is just a shield. It is only the looks...

    Do you have the little flip up table thing in your ext. cab on the back pass. side? I believe it's there for car seats.

    Thats a cup holder.


    If your looking for a skid plate I suggest Budbuilt's, i've heard nothing but good about them.

    Thats correct. On the first page that shows rear seat installation in the pdf I linked it says "if your child restrant system is too large, you can use the folding table as an auxiliary support"

    i have no picture of it now but i removed the bottom cushion all together on the passenger side. put the cup holder in the up position and used the car carrier base . i had a chico carrier in it for about 6 months till i bought a double cab.

    I had the same dilema. I could not fit a carseat in the back of my xtra-cab. I traded it for a doublecab. I found this pict.from another forum customtacos. See the picture
    it will be difficult to put the child in there.
