    Would you mind posting back with how those fit?
    I need one too. But those look considerably taller than what’s on mine.

    They fit perfect, and snapped right in. . . . they are a bit 'darker' now that my bumper is faded . . . but it came as a pack of '2', so I replaced both so they match.
    And now I have a spare.

    Update: I ordered the same ones. As I thought from looking at the pics online, they're considerably taller than the originals. The originals stuck up more than they needed to. (Why didn't Toyota make them flush like the center?) I would not recommend these.

    Weird, my stock ones were tall, so the replacements matched.
    Like I said, the new ones were darker because my bumper plastic has faded.
    I guess some years had lower /taller ones. Mines a 2006 DC 2wd FWIW.
    Sorry if i mislead you.

    I didn't mean to imply you mislead me. I just wanted to give my review on the product.

    Mine's a 2000, so maybe they changed them at some point.

    My rear bumper cap fell off on the third day after I purchased it in 2002. Think I bumped the trailer to hard. Anyhoo, went up to Stealer and ask for a new one and they said fugettabouit. I said ok.

    That was an expensive mistake on their part. :rofl:

    Fast forward to iisami sent me some parts a few months ago from his 2002 part out truck. The Caps from his are slightly taller than my lonely original of all these years. Must have been a differing lot # batch? Or maybe because my truck was made in Japan? Just kidding.
