I will overhaul my jumper design using females eventually here (of course with some shrink wrap on the exposed metal to prevent shortage) but for now I am very pleased with the little bits of parts I had and how I was still able to make it work exactly how it was supposed to.

I used a weathertight inline fuse holder and solder the ends on with some heat shrink to finish it up.

I am on week 1 of this mod I think? I don't know but I have been thoroughly enjoying this mod! Big props to 2006KJ for simplifying this mod so I didn't have to look into the wiring diagram to figure this one out on my own!

I made my own harness using random materials I found within my garage. It surprises me that you guys can't make your own harness!

Yea well. I am not too confident at electrical stuff. Like what size fuse or size wire to use.

Ahh, I see what you mean, it's all pretty general purpose, and as long as you have a basic understanding to electricity you will know what to do. BTW, If you would like to have one of those harnesses made for you, I can make one for you as well too.

I did it on my 2012. Easy as hell and the only problem I ran into was that the male connector was too big to slide into the female seat heater plug (no pun intended). But i just used some tin snips and cut a sliver off the width and was good to go. Works perfect.

Also used the weather proof 10 amp in line fuse...

thanks! but i cant take credit for this... i copied someone else on this forum that figured it out at the same time i did.


ive sent most of these jumper wires out as a 'do some one else a favor" for free mod.. but i've since run out of materials... so $5 a piece has been the going rate. Glad to help out the tacoma community... seems to be great people!

That was the biggest issue I ran into, and me not having the simple things which matter I wasn't able to cut it off or grind off enough material so what ended up happening with the connector was I snipped a sliver off of both sides and it kind of ended up looking like an arrow instead of a U style, it was sharp as a knife so I just dulled both sides on the ground a little so it wouldn't cut me or anyone else at any point :P

The people here have been absolutely wonderful thus far, very helpful, much better then previous forums I came out of. A lot of jerk offs on those and it doesn't make me miss them one bit, I'll just carry on all my knowledge of vehicles here and give to this community more then I was willing to in the other!

The only you will have to do is trim the male pin to size, you will see what we are referring to when you are installing it.
