What's up my fellow Tacomians,
Iíve come up with a locking gas door for the 2nd gen truck. I've had this idea in my head for a while but It took me a while to find a latch I liked and that would work while not interfering with the storage pocket in the bed due to the limited space between the two.
Yes, I know you can just get a locking gas cap. I had one and it worked just fine for 2 years without issue but I prefer this method better. This is the way it should have come from Toyota. No extra key on my key ring and no holding the cap while turning the key.
NEW VERSION EDIT:
This is the new version for the door lock. Iíve decided to sell them as just the lock unit itself and not as complete kits as before since everybody has their own taste in buttons or trigger mechanisms. I figure most DIY's and moders will have their own collection of wire and connectors. I think this is how I will move forward with these. It seems to be a more universal install since you donít have to locate the door lock wires and figure out if you have the right color wires. This version just needs ground and 12v+ and a momentary button.
$45 includes lock unit and the door latch and shipping within the US using the small flat rate USPS box.
What you need:
add-a-circuit to plug into fuse box
female butt connectors or crimp caps
You may or may not need a spring to help kick the door open
Here is the write up I did for the install.
