For reference, a picture of my broken tabs. I bought this as Hilux NIB kit in 1984 and used it a lot. If I recall correct, the tabs broke while driving, saying something about my early driving style... ;)

On the Hilux, yes. Holding the rear end of the front cab up. On the Blazer, no pupose at all.
