Well to buy new from Toyota, that bar would cost well over $1000.

If it polishes up OK, I'd be looking for around $750 - $800.

But then you'll no doubt get a few cheapskates who expect to get everything for nothing.

I know that at work, we pay $1,500 for the genuine Toyota alloy bars on the Prados, and I've recently paid $1,200 for an after-market alloy bar (fitted) on my Disco. So I think that anyone who gets a bar like this for under $1,000 if it's polished up and in good condition is ahead of the game.

Cheers ............... BM

Just got one very similar for my 80 series $300.Yours with no lights, I'd say $400-500. If it was steel then you could ask more- they are pretty rare 2nd hand.

I spent many hours over 2 months trying for an alloy bar for a Jackaroo '99 to '02, and although prices ranged from $300 to $750 for second hand ones from recyclers and private sales, the majority in good condition were around the $500 to $550 mark.
Being a bit newer, and for a Toyota, I would suggest the $600 to $700 area.
Cheers
I'll get there someday, or die wanting to.

They are dime a dozen... lot of folks ending up in the same situation as you that has prompted the upgrade.

Don't expect to get much for it in my experience.

Sorry to say.
Andrew.

Err,of the subject but how do these bars cope with a roo or emu at a 100km hit? Just curious as we hit a big emu at a 100km on the front with a ARB steel bar and it didn't leave a mark,very happy.
