If you've spent time on our site or in the forums, you know that there are so many different ways to customize your Toyota Tacoma. A lot of the popular mods happen to the exterior of your truck... obviously, t exterior is what everyone will see, but the interior is where you spend more of your time. In this post, I want to highlight ten, awesome Tacoma interior mods / accessories that you can quickly, and in most cases, affordably make to your truck.
TRD Pro Shift Knob
If you have an automatic Tacoma, one of my favorite interior mods is the TRD Pro shift knob. The shift knob is the first and last thing you touch when driving, so stand out from the crowd and get something unique. It’s fast and east to remove the stock one, and there are plenty of after market options. You can buy it here.
Clazzio Leather Seat Covers
Seat covers not only help protect your seats, but they add a unique style. You can go the cheap route and get some basic ones that simply slip over your seat. While they protect the factory material from dirt, they generally are not form fitting and that baggy appearance is not attractive. Clazzio Leather Seat Covers makes custom fitted seat cover in a wide array of colors and materials. They offer a great warranty and they are made to not interfere with your side airbags. You can buy them here.
Husky Floor Mats/Liners
The factory floor mats that come with your Tacoma are okay and get the job done most of the time, but you really want something durable and comfortable. A lot of aftermarket options are either one or the other. Husky Liners is the best of both worlds with a soft, yet durable material the fits perfectly in your truck. Husky also offers a selection of mud flaps and bed liners as well. You can buy them here.
Floor Mat Fasteners
As you know, the stock floor mats aren't secured to the floor, except for the drivers side. If your mats end up everywhere, a good upgrade would be the Eagle Klaw Floor Mat Fastener. This simple device requires no modifications to your truck, but keeps your mat secure. Better grip isn’t only for convenience, but safety too. You don’t want your mat sliding under your pedals. You can buy them here.
Interior LED Lights
LED lighting is the way to go: they last longer, are brighter, and give a modern look and feel to your ride. For around $40, you can upgrade not only your map and vanity mirror lights, but also your license plate and the rear middle light. The swaps are easy to do, and you’ll probably never have to buy bulbs again.
Here's a good thread on Tacoma World that will tell you what you need.
AC Vent Decals
Some people like chrome, some people don’t. If you have a 2016 – 2019 Tacoma, you are stuck with a chrome ring around your AC vents. Our matte black Tacoma AC vent decals offer a sleek, blacked-out look. You can buy them here.
Door Sill Decals
Our Tacoma door sill decals take the boring black lettering in your sills and make them pop with a color of your choice. The kit comes with decals for all four doors. You can buy them here.
Glove Box Decals
That same problem will be on your glove box, so we give you the ability to have your lettering pop with our Tacoma glove box inserts as well. Since they can be a little tricky to install, we give you two sets in the kit. These are all great inexpensive upgrades to your interior. You can buy them here.
A/C Current Plug
This next one requires as little bit of work, but is probably one of the most helpful upgrades. If you want an A/C current plug in your truck, Tacoma World offers a great article about how to do it. With a couple cuts and a little bit of wiring, you can not only have an outlet at the rear of your center console, but you can have it run in 400w mode consistently instead of switching to 100w when you shift out of park.
Stereo & Sound System
Aside from your seat and steering wheel, probably the most commonly used part of your interior is the radio. In a previous post, I covered the best ways you can upgrade your stereo for under $300. I encourage you to check that out here: Upgrading your Toyota Tacoma stereo for under $300.
All in all, there are so many things you can do to upgrade your interior. It all comes down to your style and budget.
