The above instructions were not created by me. To the best of my knowledge they were created by the user remelad of the Custom Tacos forum. While I have followed these instructions to modify the 12V power outlets in my 2007 Tacoma there is no warranty, guarantee, or any other assurance that the instructions linked to above are accurate. Any problems that they cause are the responsibility of the the person who chooses to follow them.

Be careful when you remove the strip below the steering wheel for access. The hood release catch it held in place by a plastic clip and can be broken easily if you let this piece hang by it.
