I haven't yet inspected this Taco however the body apears to be straight.
?1.doe's the pass side inner fender surport appear to be bent?

?2. the lower front frame surport is bent in a tad on pass side maybe this could be heated up and pryed out.

?3. probably the most expensive part would be the airbag, I have the understanding that only a actuale body shop can replace ABs is this true or false?

?4.lastly for right now are body panels interchangable from years 2005-2011?

Smart tow truck operater throws front bumper in back hoppefully it came be plastic welded or maybe expoxyed.

I'll be doing my research was hopping for few quick responses. then drive this Taco for 250K trouble free miles.


Thanks Steve

Yep, he's right- it looks like it's creased above where the passenger side headlight would be. Probably tweaked.

Welcome to TW. Go with the satoshi grill (by a vendor on here) and aftermarket bumper!

that grill looks kindof good better the OEM what do there sell for I've sean OEM on Ebay for around $200.

I'm also thinking the blackened LED headlights would look real cool.

is this the grill you suggest?

I will be searching around for a part out truck however it raises less eyebrows at the inspection station w/ new parts.
