I moved this post of mine from another thread.

If you look at the amount of Hilux / Fortuner’s that are stolen and we assume most are for taxi parts, what happens to the rest of the body . Surely there should be HUGE mountains of them lying around. The panels for example cannot be used as parts as there is no way that there can be such a high demand for those parts. Do they scrap them and if so where? Surely a newish Hilux / Fortuner body will draw attention.

The other options are taking them over the border of finding a way to sell it back to the unsuspecting SA consumer. I would love to know how all of this works and what ends up where
