    Has anyone seen one for a Tacoma? I drove my dad's Audi A4 and it had the switchblade key, I thought it would be cool for a taco:cool:

    I like the switch blades batter as well. I checked ebay and nothing said it was compatible with the tacoma. My dad has the fob style for his bmw and I like that, its just a little bulky. the one I liked above looks MUCH slimmer. Check the dealership though. They would be able to put you in the right direction.

    Ok, the scoops on the TRD Switchblade key.

    I did a group buy On CT about 5 Years ago. I tried searching all of my past emails and cant find any info on the seller. Like I said, have one left still in the plastic if anyone wants it. These will only work for a 1st gen Taco and early model Toyotas that dont have the transponder.
