I am going to chime in here and say I think it is real BS for some people to be holding back info, such as part #'s, misleading people as to what is available, buying stock overseas anyone of us can get and marking it up 2-3x and putting it on their website. They even have the gall to get on the forum and brag about what they found and have for sale. How about the part number bro rather than your attempts to mark up Toyota parts?

Not to mention some of the stock is limited so when so and so does this they are not helping the community, they are hoarding and making money off you/us.

Paying more for parts from a guy like @Onur is/was different. He offered a service not just parts. Or work with Dave at Japan4x4, his prices are excellent and his service is top notch. Or CruiserOutfitters, they have some of the best prices on OEM parts.

This whole middle man thing with OEM parts is pretty new school in the Cruiser community. I have literally seen XX amount in stock at such and such Toyota site, next thing I know that stock is gone and it is listed on so and so's (middle man) site here in the USA marked up considerably. That is BS and it irritates me, it is also why I don't share part numbers or info much anymore. I am more than happy to share that with DIY owners but it is the creepers, hoarders and middle man I don't care to give the info to and they have no issues taking advantage. I also get that a lot of people are to lazy to find the parts themselves, so for them a middle man is A-ok.

This is capitalism thought right? Sure is but it is also a community of enthusiasts and friends.

Cheers

Looks like I need to get in the business of fabricating out of production Toyota parts...
I hope you have some really deep pockets.

It always will come down to supply and demand. yes there are some members here that are using that demand to their own financial advantage. Rather you like it or not that's what free market capitalism is all about.

Onur, so you’re saying that new heads can be purchased after Jan 2021 or are they available now?

What I am saying is that the date code on the kanban indicates when it was manufactured. So, that indicates that new heads are still being manufactured (that the head wasn't just sitting on a shelf from many months ago).

A slight change in rear brake calipers part numbers.

Options used to be 47730-60070/47750-60070 and 47730-60110/47750-60110. Toyota has now superseded the former number to the latter.

Fitment is exactly the same and applicable to all 80 series trucks 8/1992 and later.

You can see here new iterations vs remanufactured option of -84.

The new ones are ready for pads and retention clips.

You can see here the stamping for Aisin Takaoka (AT) which is a Toyota Group company that specializes in metal castings and machinings— especially for brake components:

ART makes pistons from everything as small as 2-stroke engines to ship diesel pistons.
