Does anyone know if the new Celica steering wheel or seats could be swapped into the Tacoma with minimal modification or at all?

The steering wheel, I dunno, but the seats..........NO. Sorry yo, but the way ur gonna have to get your seats in is to cut the tack welds on the frame of the seat and weld back on the tacoma mounts to get the seat in. The bolt mounts on the Celica are different from the Tacos. On the TTORA site there is a guy that did that and has pics n stuff. I can't remember the link off hand, but I'll find it and post it again.

Re: Parts swapping

what a cool idea. I really like the seats in the new Celicas..I go see if I can find that info, too.

Guys, would it be more beneficial to have that kind of stuff right here on CustomTacos?

Jeff, that is the one! I'm going to try and call my inside guy at Toyota tomorrow and see if it would be a direct swap.

Re: Parts swapping

I called toyota right after I bought my truck in feb. 01' and asked them how much for a pair of celica seats and they told me they don't sell the whole seat and that I would have to buy the pieces and put them to gether that way. The total cost was 2300.00 dollars for two bucket seats! Did I get some wrong info on that or what? Does anyone know where I could get some of these seats for maybe 400.00 to 500.00 dollars?

Re: Parts swapping

Bad news about the Celica steering wheel. I just talked to my friend at Toyota and asked about the swap. It's no good. The set ups are totally different and will not swap. Oh well, I was just a thought.
