New version Locking Gas Door

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 E
DIT:
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:
Momentary button
wire
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.

The items in the third pic is te factory gear that will be replaced by your kit. Seems like it would work well. Only think May be the price point.

Yes on the replacement parts and I thought about the price too. It was just a starting point but I'll prolly change it to $70. Any less than that is not really worth my time in labor to modify the latches and the machine time for the catches and brackets.

Nothing is wrong with the locking cap. I used one for a long time. The price isn't for everyone just like the $98 price for the Pop-n-Lock tailgate unit which is basically the same thing but I liked it so I bought it.

Ha. Yeah it's a bit loud in the video. I also have the tailgate lock unit so the sound from that bouncing off off the back of the garage at the same time may be contributing to that.

Thanks for the interest. I will get on these and let you know when there're ready.

I don't know if they will work on 1st gen. I only had a 09 and 10 to test on.

[QUOTE=eAreEyeSee;8030483]What's up my fellow Tacomians,

Iíve come up with a locking gas door and figured if others are interested then I could machine some more latches and brackets and build some more kits but I thought I'd check before going through the effort. 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.


These would be a similar install to the Pop-N-Lock tailgate lock and would be a completely bolt on kit so no modifications required. I will include everything you need to install the kit. You would only need to remove and replace the door clip and side nipple thingy and run the wires to the door sill and splice into the door locks. It's probably about a 30ish minute project. This setup locks/unlocks the gas door with the power door locks (unlocks with the 2nd press of the unlock button).

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 still didn't like it. This is how my Audi works and I like it and I think 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.

If there is any interest in these then I will write up a how-to install thread with pics and whatnot.

$70 for the kit and that will include everything needed as well as shipping within the US using the small flat rate USPS box.

[/Q Why tie it to the door locks? What about just putting a switch in side so you are not unlocking other doors?
