    Since no one seems to sell a cabin air filter for my 2003 Tacoma, I assume it doesn't have one. When did Toyota first add the filters for Tacomas?

    I thought it was in 05 but I don't know for sure. Does your truck have a slot to put a cabin air filter?

    I thought I remembered someone saying their 05 didn't have one (but it did have a lot for it), but the 06's did have one.

    My 05 has the slot above the fan and has a OEM filter in it. May have been added after the truck was purchased, but I can't confirm as I am the second owner.
