    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    I never used sides when I hauled hay. On a 1 ton, I could fit 50.
    Fill the bed then run the bales above the bedsides from side to side. I wouldn't stack any on the tailgate on a taco though.
    500lbs bed capacity @ 35lbs bales only gets you 14 bales. You're better off with a trailer.
    If you're still set on stakes, slim down 2x4's to fit in pockets. Drill a hole in the side and use a lag bolt to secure it.

    There is no support for stakes if you take off the rail caps. The holes are not big enough, nor strong enough.

    This is my first Toyota and it sure is different than the Chevy as far as being adaptable, but I guess it is mostly for pavement warriors.

    ^I dont agree with that. These trucks are extremely capable offroad, and great light to medium duty vehicles. If you are doing farm style work, you need something bigger, like a tundra or a chevy. Just buy a trailer....
