Default 1st gen 4Runner owners, the best $2 you can spend

If you have a 1st generation 4Runner, you either have good ones of these, or a terrible rattle coming from your tailgate. These are too hard to find at the JY and usually break when you R&I anyway. Put new ones of these baby's to hold your tailgate straps and you'll feel like you're driving a new truck. Toyota part # 65778-89104 $2.04 each.

I used to buy them in bulk from Jerry at Burt back when my tailgate still lined up with my bed sides. They are sacrificial if you use your truck, plywood sheets seems to have a radar for them.

Now the whole thing is a mess of crimped sheet metal and broken seam welds, so the tail gate straps no longer sit in these seats, but if your body is still straight they do wonders for keeping things nice and rattle-free.

I didn't realize trucks had them too. 4Runners sound really bad without them having the tailgate in your interior.

Yup, I assume the same (don't remember the part number). They keep the bars from rattling on the body and tail gate. Newer trucks use coated cables for this, but I prefer the bars.
