    So I'm looking for one of those things that replaces the gas flap with just a plastic cover that had no door on it, I think I've seen them on jeeps? I'd like to get one for my taco (just for aesthetics) but I'm not even sure what to type into Google. I might just take off the door and plasti-dip the inside and get a locking gas cap.

    Jeep makes that one, its that way stock. Personally I think it would look terrible on a taco. Whats your issue with the gas door?

    You ever seen someone who makes them for other vehicles? I know I've seen them on trucks before.

    Never seen one for a taco. IMO it wouldn't looks good, due to our gas door being square. It flows on that jeep because it's round.
