    I bought both, so hopefully nobody else ends up wasting their hard earned money. I always go OEM, because 9 times out of 10 the OEM is superior. But the tailgate dampener is an exception to that rule.

    The OEM came sealed from a dealership for $95, the Stabilus came from O’Reillys for $15. Both made in Mexico, and both have similar markings. The OEM has the Toyota part number stamped on it. There are subtle differences, but I can confidently say both of the parts pictured are made on the same assembly line. Only difference is packaging and price.

    After typing all this, I see there’s already another thread confirming everything I’ve already said.
