    [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]What's up my fellow Tacomians,

    I’ve 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.[/FONT]

    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.[/FONT]

    NEW VERSION E

    This is the new version for the door lock. I’ve 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 don’t 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.

    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.

    $70 definitely sounds better.

    I believe the hardware behind the door on the 1st gen would be different from the 2 gen.

    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.
