    I have an 05 tacoma with manual locks and windows... is it possible or how much would it be to convert either of these to automatic and is it difficult to DIY???

    that seems like way too much trouble... the main reason i was wondering is the guy i bought my truck from put in an alarm system and i forget about it and when i unlock the door it always scares the $hit out of me haha. thanks for the advice though, this might be a project i pick up later down the road

    You don't have to go OEM route, there are aftermarket kits. I haven't done it because our locks mechanism uses cable (instead of rod), so you have to strip down the cable cover, which I don't like because in the long run it could bring issues. There are pictures of someone who did it, either here or on customtacos.com

    Removed secondary air filter.
    I used one of their kits along with a python 2-way alarm. Cost me about 250$ all together. I did the install myself. You are going to need the cable actuated kits.
