    ya it going to be hard to fined something like that because they only made the locks for the 98-99 models maybe earlier models but then they made them without the lock... try taking it to a lock smith and see if they have something that will fit... on my truck my lock got jammed dew to corrosion and they fixed it, if they cant fix it then just buy another gas door without the lock and buy a cap that will lock.

    oh dang man didnt know our gas door locks were so exlusive lol that sucks though. but yeah after i noticed that i got siphoned i went straight to the parts store and got me a locking cap. id love to get the door lock fixed though i hate having an extra key on my ring...got to many already. i see if i cant locate a junk yard with a 98-99 taco.

    btw how do you like your super charger? i want one some day:burnrubber:

    ya good luck with your hunt :/ but about my supercharger i like it.... But im going to be honest.... i have no idea how big of a different's it makes, reason being is because this truck it my first tacoma i ever had and it was also the first tacoma i've ever been in and drove..... i use to have a peace of shit sierra then a honda accord then this. i got it with the supercharger already in it so i really cant tell you how good it is... i can just tell you that i LOVE my truck and it my baby.;)

    ya i know im pulling a little bit more then a new 4.0 tacoma, i did the research but i might be wrong, and mines a v6 3.4 (gas sucks) I got the truck for $5,000 how it sits now, it did have a lot of really big problems when i got it. rear shocks where shot, tires were bald, ball joints and tie rod ends were shot and bellows from the rack and pinion were torn, had to replace the knock sensor to pass emissions, battery was really old, the right rear axle shaft was bend so i had to replace that... and that's it and now its cleaner and healthier then ever :D so far I've done all the work to it. its cheaper and i really dont trust mechanics to do the work, if they can do it why cant i.... always say that to myself. :D so far so good
