Broken foot rest, long rant...

I bought my truck last Wednesday the 11th. Didn't have a single issue with it. On Wednesday the 18th I dropped it off with an audio/electronics store in Winchester, Va for an alarm install.

When they finished that afternoon another company, Rhino Linings of Winchester, picked it from the audio store so they could install some chrome trim and vent shades for me. They had done my Nerf bars and topper for me last week. I was picking up the truck from Rhino on Thursday when they finish with it.

Thursday morning the 2nd time I got out of the truck the foot rest comes flying out at me.

I was close to Rhino lining so I went back to Rhino Lining and talked to the owners wife and helper, they didn't know anything about it. They had recommended the audio shop and I wanted them to know what issue I had.

I'm figuring the audio shop broke the foot rest when they were working on the wiring.

I went back to the audio shop and the owner there insists it was broken when he got the truck. He won't budge off of that. He tells me he told the owner of Rhino about it. I talked to Dave at Rhino later and he confirmed that.

All I know is the truck was a week old and I didn't have a flying foot rest when I dropped it off. Rhino wasn't working inside the truck either.

Here is the broken foot rest, what do y'all think did this kind of damage? Specifically what do you think might have caused this?

It's going to cost me 26 + shipping for a new one.

Me thinks they took it off and put it on the ground, forgot to put it back on and drove over it with your truck when they moved it. Are there any markings, scratches or gouges on the other side?

I think they effed it up when they tried to put it back on. The top and sides look brand new, like they should.

I had the same exact thing happen to me with my '06!!! It probably wasn't a year after I had bought the truck when the foot rest broke. I would occasionally try to pull my wallet out of my back pocket while still sitting in the seat, which would require me to put weight on my left foot in order to raise out of the seat a little. I remember hearing it crack a few times until one day it just completely broke off. I have yet to replace it......

Does anybody know of an aftermarket piece this can be replaced with that might be a bit more sturdy????

Same thing on my 09. Might try a couple of small hose clamps around the plastic mounts to try and strengthen it up a bit. BTW, I haven't replaced mine yet either. I should try the warranty thing first though since I'm still under it.

Thought I was the only one with a jacked up footrest.

WTF? Lemme repeat, WTF???

Damn thing just fell off one day and I looked at the back and it literally looks just like the OPs. I've never messed with it.

It's still attached by the bottom female connection, but it jiggles.

However, a brand new one....less than $6.00 from the dealer. Yay for preformed plastic!

Picking it up today.

I had to replace the one on my old tacoma and found that this thing is the only reasonably priced toyota part ever made. so many other injection molded pieces of plastic in the truck that cost waaaaay too much. So many people go without replacing them or try to ghetto rig them because they think they are expensive like everything else. Less than $10 out the door, might as well just replace it. Mine even came with the little white plastic fastener things.

Mine was broken when I bought the truck used last year. Good to hear its cheap. I need to order a new one because I know I am gonna do something tragic to my left foot one day when I am doing the wallet thing as well.

Mines the same way. I pounded my fenderwell so far in it broke the clips. But my guess is they forced it back in poorly.
