    Has any one added the 110v bed plug to their 05-11 truck. I have an SR5 and to my understanding only the TRD trucks cam with the bed plug. If anyone know if a “how to” that would be great. I have looked and looked and can’t find any one who has do this addition.

    IIRC, your truck won't have the wiring, inverter, or anything else pre-installed.
    As such, you'll be doing the whole thing from scratch, which is likely why there hasn't been much activity about it.

    That what I figured. I was hoping to get all the needed parts from a totaled truck but I might just scratch putting one in the bed and just add one in the cab.

    I along with 2 other have Tacoma's with power outlets. It is something that rarely gets used to the point its almost a novelty.

    Nothing like a 280HP V6 generator that barely makes enough power to do anything than charge a battery. If you see your self needing to generate 120v power very often I'd look for a small Honda generator

    Even 100w is a pretty weak output(think 100w light bulb), neat idea but don't think it's anything close to your 20A wall outlet at home(2400W).

    I just carry an inverter and a bunch of spare fuses, probably would do that even if I had the bed plug.

    I was mostly thinking of charging phones and thing of that nature when bed camping, and I do have a Honda 2000w generator I take on longer trips just most of the time I can’t fit it anywhere on long roadtrips.

    I couldn't even cook rice with that power plug(I tried using a rice cooker on it lol); its useless to even install one if you ain't got one that came with the truck.

    I think I’m just ganna but one of the more portable ones off Amazon so I have more that one 12v plug in my truck. Like this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004...r+inverter&dpPl=1&dpID=51XOZ+xBykL&ref=plSrch

    Get a good powerful one and wire it right up to the battery; don't get one that plugs into the cigarette lighter thing; I feel the wiring behind it is just too small of a gauge that drawing too much power from it will just burn it up.

    I thought I saw somewhere that someone did a mod that allowed more power from it. I can't find it now though. Maybe it was just my wishful thinking.

    Yeah that’s what I need to do. It shouldn’t be that hard to install.
    I saw one where the guy upgraded the inverted and added both a 12v and 110v outlets for the back seats under the center console. It’s an I idea I had wanted to do but I don’t have the time to take my whole interior apart.

    I have a power plug in the bed of my Sport but all I've ever done with it is brag to my friends that I have one.

    Yeah I have never used mine either. Everything I would use it for requires too much power. It really is pretty much useless as is.

    I think the plug worked out really well for the guys who like to run Christmas lights back there.
