    Wouldn’t that require me to install a different harness on my truck?

    I guess I'm going to have to hold on to my first gen until I move back to California. There's literally like no market for these trucks in my state unless you give it away for $1500, throw in a Luke Byran CD and a case of Bud Light.

    Then install them. Its some of the simplest wiring you will ever do to have trailer brakes.

    Surge brakes are a pain in the ass. No in cabin adjustment. Electric for the win.

    Yes, but it's worth it. I wouldn't worry about it renting a uhaul to use once, but if you're buying s trailer you will actually use you need them. Pulling isn't the problem with a Tacoma, it's stopping

    They're helpful, but you have to have a place to put it, luckily my dad doesn't ever really need it. I don't always need it either but it holds more than the taco and is easier to load if I need to buy building supplies or engines or furniture.

    No idea honestly, can't be too much though. Also random, but being a 5 lug does your truck have smaller brakes then a 6? Never thought of that before

    You're welcome to one that was installed in my 5-Lug. But i am pretty sure it hasn't worked since the Clinton Administration.

    Let me know if you want to install one. I can help.

    They're better than nothing. I hauled my Honda Civic home on a dolly with surge brakes and I didn't feel a thing. I was pushing 3,600 pounds. On the flip side, when I towed my toolbox home on a flatbed - I could feel everything and all that weight behind me because it was unbraked.
