    I just purchased a 2012 regular cab Tacoma and would like to add cruise control and intermitent wipers. Anyone tried this yet?

    Thanks

    I think they changed the steering wheel for 2012.

    I would like to bump this thread. I am thinking of buying a 2.7 4x4 regular cab, and while I love manual windows and locks, I'm a CC fiend. I have called and verified that the 2012 models that come with CC standard use the same part number as those that have bought to add CC to their regular cabs. It seems like it may still be plug-n-play, but I'm not sure.

    Has anyone with a '12 yet tried this?

    Thanks!

    I did end up installing cruise on my 2012.. works like a champ.. the steering wheel cover is different if you order an OEM, I posted the part number in a thread here somewhere. Here is the number for the OEM steering wheel cover 45186-04030-B0. I ordered the kit for a 2011 from Brandon Distributing and ordered the cover from Toyota.

    I just added cruise and intermittent wipers to my 2012 long bed.....Just can't keep a constant speed going at my age. Did the same as 'xglasman'....ordered the cruise from Brandon, and ordered the intermitten wiper arm and the cruise steering wheel cover ($4.00) from Toyotaparts.com.....Took longer to get the panels off and identify the correct connectors than it did to install the wires. But, they both work great!

    Has anyone done a install on a 2012 with a manual trans? Is there still a pre-wired connector for the clutch switch?

    Ok I installed the intermittent wiper stalk on my 2012 Regular cab using the part number from 2011. All is well and it was an easy install. I'm leaning towards doing the cruise control but have a question. Are all the electronics that control the throttle contained in the cruise stalK? Is the gas pedal actually an electronic device? In other words do I have to install (purchase) anything else besides the cruise stalk, wire and side cover? I know my newbie is showing...

    The electronics are actually in the ECU. The stalk is nothing more than 4 switches (might be some electronics in there, but the guts are in the computer).
    Yes, the gas pedal is little more than a potentiometer or positioner that feeds a desired throttle position to the ECU. The ECU controls a servo on the throttle body. It's all fly by wire now.

    MOST trucks it's simply plug and play.
    There have been some reports of RC-Base models produced in Mexico that are missing the connecting wire from the column to the ECU, but that can be added with a little work.
    My '08 RC Base was plug and play.

    For about a hundred bucks I can get the parts to do the cruise control. Why not. Thanks for the info on how the gas pedal/throttle works electronically. I have the automatic so no clutch switch needed.

    Yup.

    Toyota of Dallas I paid about $250 shipped for everything for the cruise and wipers (plus a few extra parts... oil filters and an air filter)

    So I took the plunge and ordered the parts from 1stToyota. In my order comments I mentioned that the idea for cruise in a regular cab came from a Tacoma forum and if by chance I did not order the correct parts would they be so kind to make the correction and send the correct parts. My order was accepted and in the confirmation contents was this message.

    "We here at Toyota do not add on cruise control onto model that did not come from the factory with cruise control. If you know that the parts that you are ordering are correct, we will continue with your order. However, if the parts are incorrect, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs and you will be charged a 15% restocking fee."


    These are the parts I ordered:
    84632-08021 Cruise control switch
    45186-0C020-B0 Steering wheel cover (Forum stated 2012 P/N due to new steering wheel design.)
    84633-04020 Cruise control wire
    I have the two screws to attach the stalk to the frame.

    I'll keep you posted on how it all turns out.

    Yup... CYA.
    A few have been successful in getting a tech they know to order and install the proper parts, but the official line, and anything they are going to put in writing, will not support the addition of factory parts that were not factory original unless they were an option on that model, such as the RS3000 alarm system on my wife's Rav4.

    I have the Regular Cab 2012 I4 4x4 auto and installed the stalk, connector wire and cover as stated in http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/61-2nd-generation-2005/171992-diy-oem-cruise-control.html.

    No joy:mad: . The parts went in just as pictured in the Toyota Nation post but the test drive had negative results for the cruise control

    I understand that some RC Tacoma are missing a wire from the ECU to the steering wheel. Tacoma's built in Mexico. I checked my door jamb and my truck was made in Texas Nov 2011. That's not Mexico but maybe it applies the same way.

    Does someone have a ready handle on where the post is that describes how to add the missing wire from the ECU? if so, I'll do that step and see if the cruise works. If it doesn't work I may uninstall and do a FS post on the parts I purchased.

    Thanks
