I'm in the middle of making a T-cable to tap into a live system, which needs a couple of moderately-expensive connectors
There are contactless crocodile clips which can be used if you only need to spy data without sending anything (like just spying J1939):

or tap into cable system without connectors using intrusive T splitters:

You might also use thin needles hack to tap into the system without a need for an expensive connector.

Of course, nothing like a real thing. But these days receiving products from online ordering can take forever.

I've got the connectors, just need steel myself for the crimping... it's a one-time assembly with environmental seals etc.

£20 for a pair isn't too bad, considering. But in principle it should be possible to have a stock of "close enough" pins and receptacles and 3D-print the housings on demand.
