I am planning to buy a Bull Bar for my 88 4runner. i wanted to get a TJM, but they seem hard to find a retailer for. i was going to risk buying from NWOR since their site claims that they are overstocked and selling the T13 for the "blow out" price $465. well big surprise, i call em and the rep tells me they no longer carry TJM...

my question to ya'll is, what retailer has the best price on an ARB bull bar or a TJM T13 for an 88 4Runner? right now, it looks like i'll be buying an ARB from the local 4WPW, and i'll pay about $660

thanks for any advice.

later.gene.

P.S. does anyone know a Scott Tate who used to work for Jay Marks Toyota. i've heard he sells ARBs.

Several places sell ARB's for $550 - don't pay more...

AFAIK - TJM no longer has a US distributor, so any you would find are old stock left over in someone's warehouse...

I am not sure if they still have some in stock (TJM)but you can try DesertRat.com to check. When my buddy was going to buy one he called them and they said they had over stock too. There is a place in Florida I think it is called (NOT SURE MIND YOU) extremmewheels.com Just happened to see they had some when surfing the net. That's all for now, but if I find more I will let ya know.

hey, thanks for the help. i called desert rat, and they were very helpful. the rep couldn't get info on it immediately, so he got my phone# and asked me to call back tomorrow.. then he called me 10 minutes later with info he found on it. i'm really impressed with their attitude, compared to NWOR with whom i felt like i was disturbing the reps sleep or something...

Desert rat told me that TJM has a new distributor, and they started imorting around mid summer. Desert Rat's price for the TJM is 699+120ship. ugh...

man, i can't find anyone who sells ARB's for $550... i heard that the Scott Tate fellow does, but that was sometime back. the best i have found so far is 4x4connection.com at $619, but then she shipping is a biatch $125.

thanks.gene.
