    I tried to order silver tube steps yesterday from a nearby Toyota dealer. The Parts employee mentioned that Toyota recently discontinued tube steps for all Tacoma's. An inventory search, however, showed another local dealer had 1 set in stock. I contacted the dealer immediately. I was informed the tube steps were returned to the manufacture because the item is discontinued. Neither employee could provide an explanation as to why the tube steps are discontinued.

    I appreciate any information concerning:

    1). Why the tube steps have been discontinued,

    2). Where to buy OEM tube steps

    Thanks in advance!

    not sure why, but the bike fork mount was discontinued as well (at least according to the dealer)...maybe lack of sales, trying to tighten up the belt a little?
