Key fob shell replacement?

Mine broke at the loop and I'm looking to replace it. Any suggestions for an upgrade or aftermarket piece?

I got an aftermarket FOB case on Amazon a few years ago, looks stock and the guts swapped in fine.

Same here. Used these ones sold by S&I Remotes (Amazon.com: 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 99 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 TOYOTA 4RUNNER 4 BUTTON REMOTE FOB CLICKER KEYLESS ENTRY CASE SHELL & PAD ONLY WITH FREE DISCOUNT KEYLESS GUIDE : Automotive) back in 2019 to repair the fobs for my folks' Sequoia and the SO's Camry. No issues for any of them so far.

Looks like I need to order another set to do the T4R as my loop is 1/2 broken now.

I replaced mine last year with this one. Just pop open the old fob, remove the circuit board & put it in the new one.

I also bought a shell off of Amazon that looked like the oem a couple years ago. No issues swapping over the guts.

I've also used the Amazon shell on my 3rd gen. It lasted probably about 70k miles before I had to get another one. The plastic is a bit cheaper than OEM, but you can't beat the price.
