    I've been to Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Advanced Auto, AutoZone, PepBoys, etc....and STILL cannot find anything Toyota brand related. More specifically, floor mats, steering wheel covers, etc.

    I see GMC, Ford, Chevy, even HONDA related products, but NEVER Toyota. Why is this? Is it a conspiracy again Toyota or something? What is the deal?

    Can anyone tell me where to by Toyota brand products either locally, national chain or online? I would like to get some Toyota floor mats and decals for the back window. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated...

    Check E-bay. I've noticed the same thing. They have everything but Toyota. The only thing I can think of is they (Toyota) don't want anyone else selling there good name.?

    Much as I love Toyota, they prefer to gouge you pricewise by only making their stuff available through the dealership. Where else could you purchase a $75.00 plastic hubcap for a Corolla? (And that was the price 8 years ago!) I never did replace that thing....

    AFAIK, Toyota is very possessive when it comes to protecting the Toyota copyright, that's why you don't see much of Toyota branded items out there.

    I commented in that "truck U" thread that those guys should lean on those aftermarket companies to bring in more Toyota stuff-but you guys are making me think...maybe at that level, Toyota just might have been a pain in the ass for those guys to deal with so they just don't:eek:

    I refuse to buy any Toyota accessories they charge an arm and a leg for them. I got a set of weather tech floor mats for my truck, they fit perfect and they don't say Toyota on them. :laugh:
