    2004 Taco base 2.4L 2 door standard cab, 2WD, auto trans, w/manual door locks

    Ignition switch (installed) - New with aftermarket key
    Door handle exterior (installed) - New aftermarket $15 cheapos
    Door lock cyclinder (installed )- reused old (want to replace)

    Factory door lock cylinder are worn out, keys are worn too. I have already replace ignition switch with aftermarket so I have a different door and ignition key. Doesn't botter me. I have also replaced the door handles.

    Now I go to order replacement door lock cylinders for my Taco, try to replace and find the ones in the doors don't match what was sent. I find the correct ones on ebay and order from a different vender. They sent the same wrong ones, just like the one I ordered before. Their photo doesn't match the product sent.

    What type of Taco do these locks go with?

    This is what I need and ordered.

    This is the wrong door cyclinder sent.

    The one I ordered. Photo is correct, item did not match photo.

    Example of what I keep on getting that does not fit.

    You can never go by Internet generic pictures.

    I would just go have my lock cylinders rebuilt and keyed to the ignition switch .

    Nice to have good Locksmiths down the street.

    Possible your locks were changed at one time.
