    Being new to Tacomas (and Toyota as well) I'd like to know what other Toyota vehicles share parts with my '09 Tacoma. Things like switches, wheels, suspension components, interior parts like door panels, trim pieces etc. so when I head out to a "pick-n-pull" type yard I know what vehicles to look in for the good stuff.

    Thanks

    Not 100% sure, but I think the FJ and the Tundra have the same size push button dash switches.

    2gen Tacoma, 4gen 4Runner, FJ Cruiser all share some of the Prado 120 platform ToMoCo developed for its Land Cruiser brand overseas.

    Pretty much all of these share drivetrain and suspension parts. 1st gen Tundras and T100s share some parts but not many...mostly rear axle/differential parts.

    Here's some info on the 120 platform and the vehicles using it:

    The interior door handles and window/power lock switches are from the Corolla/Matrix/Pontiac Vibe as are the exterior door handles. I think the steering wheel is from the last generation Sienna Mini Van.
