Hi: Happy Camper...IMHO the Honda Ridgeline and Ford SportTrac are out . The hitch for a 5.0 needs to be located over or slightly ahead of the rear axle. The hitch tie downs have to be bolted thru the box and into the frame. This makes special requirements needed for a composit box truck like the Toyota Tacos.
The 6'1" bed on our long wheel base Crew Cab Frontier seems full of hitch. There's just enough space for a small- to med. sized tool box, or a few large plastic totes. Next time I hitch up I will take some pic's.
Check with Reace at Escape for his thoughts. Regards Alf
