    Hey what's up,
    I recently got into a accident with my Yota, I speared a tree and was wondering if there is a frame the same size as the 97 Sr5 4x4 Tacoma's ? I got a nice 4 inch dent from the right passenger tire concaving up under the front passenger side, I've been contemplating on getting it pulled out, but I'm not sure if it's worth it?(or if I'm going to get raped paying for some body shop to do it) Any advice or answers?
    Thanks

    I don't get what you're asking... Is your frame fucked up? If so, there's not a lot you can do besides having full coverage insurance... There's no "cheaper" frame you can switch out with yours and make everything ok. If you need a new frame, you "need a new frame". No getting around that. If it's just body damage, you can always find a new front clip or fenders, bumpers, etc.

    ya it's pretty fucked... I ment to say is their any other frames used in qnother Tacoma or 4runner that uses the same frame. Trying to find my exact make and model is a pain in the ass.

    Anybody know if there is any other frames that will work? Like a 96 or a 98? Or am I stuck with just the 97?

    Shouldn't any 95.5-04 Xtra cab (assuming your taco is Xtra) work? You would need new rear springs with a 98-04 frame, but I assume everything else would fit...

    If not, than a 95.5-97 frame is what you want.

    engine and trans make a difference so I was told when shopping for mine.

    but I agree 95-04

    try www.car-parts.com you will probally need to try a few searches to get them. try a ~ 95 99 02
