    I was crawling around under my truck looking for things to spray with Rust Reformer, when I noticed this flap hanging down. It looks like it needs a couple of plastic pins to push into place, but I'm not sure what to ask for and if I can get them without going to a Toyota dealer. Any input?

    Also, I recently got a new frame from Toyota and when I got the truck back, these little plastic pieces were in one of the cup holders. I haven't been able to figure out where they came from in the truck. Does anyone recognize them? The parts that stick out on the bottom can be squeezed in.

    I just got this 2011 in June and I'm trying to learn how to do small fixes myself and make it last as long as possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Not sure the technical term but those black flaps are your engine splash guards in the fender well. A few zip ties will do the trick until you can get the correct push in retainers.
    I don't know what the gray push clips are for.

    Not sure what those plastic peices in the cupholder are for but they go in the frame.

    The clips your looking for are called fender clips I'm pretty sure the Tacoma uses the 8MM

    Pushpins and christmas trees are what I call them, not sure what the clips are but they look brand new so maybe they were extra.
