    I've noticed that some newer (above 09 or so?) Tacoma's have plastic plug inserts in the rectangle frame holes in the front wheel wells just behind the front tires. This seems like a good idea to keep the inside of the boxed frame dry while living in a north climate with road salt spray. If anyone would have a set of these for sale I'd be interested. Also, if someone could just pop one out and check to see if a part number is printed on the back, that would be great too. The stealership doesn't have a clue and can't find them in parts.

    Thanks!

    I think the truck that I saw this on was an 06 access cab with a new frame. The plug measures about 5/8 X 1 1/4 inches.

    Actually, it is on the newest trucks.

    I have some in hand for my truck. Yes it was a pain to sort out the PN's. I do have the bags. Cost for a bunch of them was $20

    90950-01987. I bought 6. There is another size I did not look into since my rezzy mount covers that hole on each side. This part number is the common one.

    BTW, plastic plugs or not, the frame is still open at each end and should be corrosion proofed as a ritual.

    Thanks guys, I'm going to order them now.

    Yes, I've just used bar and chain oil to spray the entire underside. Other than the rear bed of course.

    Luckily the truck has so far only seen one Vermont winter and is in good shape underneath.

    Bringing this one back to the top. I want to get some of these for my 05 and I have the dealer printout with the part numbers in front of me for the plugs. Did those fit into the rectangular holes in the front wheel wells? That part number shows as a 26.5mm width hole. I measured mine this morning and the holes are almost 40mm wide. I was thinking it was going to be part number 90950-01992 which shows a width of 38.5mm. Maybe my 05 has different holes than a 2010.
