    hey whats up everyone!?! Im new to this forum and I apologize if im posting in the wrong section....

    anyways this morning i woke up to seeing my truck rear ended slammed against my gate!:( the truck took the most impact on the bed and rear bumper.

    its a 2005 prerunner short bed....BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF A LONG BED WOULD BOLT UP WITH NO MAJOR modifications done? the truck is fully insured:D and i got the estimate for the damages(5,399.51) and the reason why i would want to switch to long bed is because i think it looks better....and could be cheaper (i hope) to buy a bed alone and use the rest of the money towards a lift kit:D thanks in advance!!!!!

    That's not important. What is important is that you would have to get a new frame. The short bed frame is the same length as the access cab frame. But the long bed frame is completely different.
