    I just picked up a filler piece for my drivers side of my 01 Taco, and I was wondering how the heck does this thing get installed. Any tips on installing it would be much appreciated. Thanks

    I just replaced mine on my 98. I'm not sure if you would have them but i had one little plastic piece that clipped onto each bumper filler and was just a little awkward to clip on. but that is all there is to it.

    Yep, it just click/snaps in place. My truck was missing the same one when I bought it. Did you paint it to match? If not, you can go to most parts stores and have them mix you up a spray can of your factory paint color and paint it to match (I think I got mine at NAPA). Then just spray it with a Dupli-Color or similar type clear coat and you'll never be able to tell it didn't come on the truck from the factory. It's such a small piece that this paint option works great for it. I wouldn't try to paint a fender or hood with it, but for small parts like this it works great.

    Well I have a black tacoma so I'm not really concerned about painting it but if it looks ridiculous I'll probably end up painting it.
