    What's up my fellow Tacomians,

    I’ve come up with a locking gas door for the 2nd gen truck. 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 needed a project and I prefer this method better. This is the way it should have come from Toyota. No extra key on my key ring and no fumbling with the key while getting the cap off.

    I used to have a dash button version as well as version to work with the door locks but most seem to prefer the separate button so that's how they will be sold now.

    These are semi complete with the basics to get it working. It now includes the fuse tap, spring to pop the door open, and a basic momentary button. It seemed not everybody wanted the VW button so i just went with a basic one but its easy to find on ebay and substitute it in if you want to.

    $50 includes the shipping within the US using the small flat rate USPS box.

    What you need:

    -wire
    -a few random wire connectors of your choice like butt connectors or crimp caps
    -zip ties
    -maybe wire loom if you desire but not required

    Here is the write up I did for the install.http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...-gas-door.html

    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.
