This part used to be available in plastic, but is now only available in metal. This sounds good except it makes it more expensive to ship as it is no longer flexible so has to be shipped in a really large box. It is metal though so should last pretty much forever. Works on 2wd and Syncro Doublecab from 86-92 Number 39 on chart.
IMPORTANT!!! This works on Double Cab Vanagons (crew cab Doka) only! If you have a standard Vanagon it will not work for you.
