Paid $ 115 for a Nippondenso remanufactured one. Seller had great feedback and has sold lots of these it looks like.

The used alternator market seems to be between $ 50 and $ 70 plus shipping, and these trucks all had over 125,000-165,000 miles and no warranty of course. I'd be lucky to get a few more years out of one of those.

Toyota wants $ 315 for one, NAPA wanted $ 285 for theirs ($ 180 for their lower-end one), so this seemed like a good buy. I have used Nippondenso before and had great success with it.

My 80 runs great, but it showed signs earlier today of the voltage issue that is associated with the impending 3FE alternator failure. I don't want this to hit me on the trail one day, so I decided to go ahead and make the swap.
