Pretty much ever Toy lock I've ever seen can be opened very easily. It's one of those cute little Toyota quirks.

I'd tell you about my truck but you probably wouldn't believe me.

Get an alarm and some door poppers.Not overly expensive, and any mod that helps you keep possession of your ride is well worth the money.Then you can remove the locks and fill the holes. Just make sure you keep your batteries fresh or you will be locked out!

"Door Poppers" = Linear Actuators

Small motor, worth about $35 each, lock and unlock the door based on a signal from your alarm.

As Wade stated, if this is the only way in then you better be real sure your alarm works perfectly or you're gonna be smashing a window (or doing a search on Google for "How to steal a Toyota truck"

My buddies who used to own lowriders all had shaved door handles and auto door poppers, but the trick was they all had an emergency door button (a manual one) under the truck in case the batteries went dead.
