If you need a tag light assembly for a 2005 Titan truck, you are out of luck. The service file says "Must order new bumper"

Really...

Seems reasonable to me, other manufacturers would make you replace the whole truck.

I remember an interview with some person from one of the Euro companies where he was gushing about how nice it is to have cars designed with "cooling modules". So you don't have to spend lots of labor hours piecing together this and that and the other, you just replace the cooling module!

So you get a power steering leak, you have to replace the P/S cooler, and radiator, and A/C condenser.

Maybe it makes sense from a collision-repair perspective.

Tangentially thinking, I got to spend some time with a 6.4 Powerstroke recently. OMG. There were at least six coolers hung out the front of that thing, all sandwiched together in a way that made me glad I didn't have to work on it. Radiator and intercooler and condenser and oil cooler and P/S cooler and trans cooler. Dodge was smart and made them side by side starting about ten years ago, Ford went smarter with the 6.7 and uses a dual cooling system, two separate cooling systems. One for the engine, one for everything else including intercooler.

I wonder if they are the same as the ones on the Tacoma? I need a bumper for my Tacoma but my light assembly is fine. If you want go 50/50 on a new bumper with lights...

same story on the xterra, and probably the frontier too. the connectors corrode out and the light stops working, time for a new $400 bumper.

26510N is the part number of the replacement licence plate lamp assembly.

I'd suggest you find a different parts counter.

Toyota says that if I want new rear suspension bushings I should order a new subframe w/ linkages.

Yep.

Same thing on the ST18x chassis Celicas. The rear control arm bushings are not available from Toyota, and never have been. You order new control arms.

SuperPro makes replacements, and they're very proud of them. And they can be, because as long as they're cheaper than buying new control arms for about $800, people will buy them.

Perhaps the originals are poured-in bushings?

Not that they couldn't make press-in versions, but to be truly original replacement, if it was poured, you would need to replace the arm.
