    Has anyone here installed a push-button start in their Taco?

    I am thinking about researching more info on a keyless, key fob in the pocket, push button start system.... Much what like the newer Lexus's and Vette's have. Thought I'd check here first.

    Any ideas? Referrals? Pics?

    I did find this: http://gallotech.com/

    That wouldn't work for me. My mind wanders sometimes.

    The subject of push button starting comes up on CT about once or twice a year. Some people have gotten as far as buying the push buttons but never reported back that they'd ever actually installed them. The only CT-zen who ever explicitly claimed to have actually installed one (back in 2003) had already removed it by the time he mentioned he'd ever installed it ...
