    Besides the "cheap bumper" what have you found to be an ebay hidden gem for the 2nd gen Taco?

    I feel like there are always some good finds to be had if you know what you are looking for...

    A few things
    Bought a bestop soft top from a place that sells blemished car parts. Emailed them and asked what was wrong with it, they said the metal frame had some scratches on it. So for $170 shipped I got it and it had a few tiny scratches on the metal frame.......that goes in a truck bed. Looks like someone had bought it, opened it and returned it because of the scratches. Saved me hundreds of dollars.

    Thanks for the relevant posts. I don't see an issue with a thread like this. Believe it or not, not everything on eBay is a total POS. Maybe you might even be intrigued by something that gets posted in this thread someday...

    I was able to source a rebuilt Espar heater for my truck bed camper setup. Ended up paying $600 less than retail. Not a bad find!

    This will either be a great thread or will turn into Ebay Bumper BS Thread 2.0

    I think everyone knows the context of the bumper thread, and I hope to keep this discussion moving in a different direction than where that went.
