    I suppose I could go to the dealer and crawl under their Tacomas and measure.

    The traction bar bracket that is circled in red, is about 50-52" from the front of the U bolts. my question...

    Is the frame on the ext cabs the same dimensions in that spot as a regular cab?

    What I mean is about 8-10 inches behind that bracket (green mark) is where the frame curves upward. Trying to see if that curve is the same distance from the U bolts on both cab styles.

    Does anything I said make sense?
