Will a Tundra tow-connector work on a Tacoma?

I have a 7-pin RV style connector on my Tacoma and would like to have one that has both the 7-pin and well as the 4-wire connector. My car trailer uses the 7-pin RV style and I've added a LED light bar with brake-tail and turn light functions across the top at the rear of the trailer. This gets plugged into the 4-wire connector so that the LED light bar functions like a "third" brake light (http://www.gorecon.com/product.php?p...e-Bar&p_cat=75)

Looking around in the aftermarket, I've been unable to find one but did see one on a Tundra this morning. Does anyone know if this would be a simple swap or would it require a bit of re-wiring?

Thanks,

Ray

Is this what you're looking for, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/ima...1&s=automotive?

Thanks,

I also found this:

And it looks like a simple un-plug, replug solution (if it will work.)

Anyone know? I've sent an inquiry to Hopkins but don't expect to hear from them until at least Tuesday.

Thanks,

Ray
