#6962 of 7624 Fender Flares needed 2006 2WD Access Cab
May 01, 2006 (12:39 pm)
Toyota Tacoma 2006 Access Cab and 2WD 2.7 4 cyl.
Looks and drives great and managed a great out the door price on it( 19,870 - that includes tax, title, license).
I note the body does appear elevated with noticable large
wheel well gap between body and standard size tires.
Can you experts out there post links to sites that would definitely have "street" fender flares. Just need the black accents against the dark red color and to reduce the wheel well gap slightly. Thanks

I feel a sense of urgency to install a locking gas cap to deter gas theft. Especially now that the gov't issued a statement that gas is going to stay high for 3 more years.
Oil crude is $73 US a barrel today.
Tomorrow I pick up my Stant locking cap at the auto parts store. Stant makes caps to fit the '05 Access Cab. My cost $22US including sales tax.
My intuition has served me well over the years.

Has anyone installed an in-dash DVD Nav system? I think a a factory system is available in the Tundra. Why not Tacoma?

Wow, it really smooths out the power response. Almost flat accross the RPM band, from 1800-5000+...

I just retrofitted with a locking gas cap and want to share some cost benefit info. Not from using the cap, rather where one buys it. I went to the local auto parts store which is a chain store named CarQuest. The package reads Made In USA with a coporate location of Raleigh, NC.
CarQuest Part No. 35072 for a '05 Access Cab. The store gave me a veteran discount. List $32. Sell $14 + tx. The pkg reads "Made by Stant".
Retrofit means losing the anti-loss cord which connects the Tacoma cap to the access door.

I have an Eclipse AVN5435. Eclipse is an aftermarket brand from Fujitsu Ten which also makes factory headunits for Toyotas and Lexus.
It works Great! only drawback is the "zit zit" sound that the DVD navigation diskdriver makes when in navigation mode. It may be annoying to some folks. But they also have harddisk navigation model AVN7000 (?) which probably won't have the "zit zit" noise issue.
my cost was $1300 +150 installation( Super Autobacs in Stanton,CA). I also had the rear view camera Eclipse BEC105 ($200) installed in the middle top of the rear license plate
Some dealers do have factory DVD NAV option for 05+ tacomas which are equivalent to Eclipse AVN5495. But cost is almost twice at $2500 (Elmore Toyota in Westminster,CA)

Why did Toyota use the SAE ratings for 2006 Nissan didnt neither did Honda. Why It brought Tacoma horsepower and torque ratings down. Last year: 245 horsepower 282 pound feet torque. This year: 236 horsepower 266 pound feet torque.
