    Does anyone know if there is a bed power outlet kit? I don't have time to do a mod myself, so was looking for a "plug n' play" kit that would fit into the existing Taco bed side boxes......Thanks.

    I suppose we could try to find a wrecked TRD (got a be tons of them!) and take out the electrical outlet? I wonder if it would fit in the SR5's box space? I have to believe the wiring is already there?

    I don't know the answer to your question, but do you have a specific need for it?

    I've seen a few threads on here where people are of the opinion that 'it's nice to have, but I've never used it'. I'm the same way.

    If it was more than 400W I'd use it, but it won't even power a shopvac or a drill.

    I've been reading some other threads posted on this. I think the OEM inverter is mounted somewhere under the console. I would like to get a much more powerful inverter - not sure where to mount it....needs to have heat dissipated (considering this, I wonder why they put the OEM under the center console??). I understand the outlet in the bed is just that, an outlet. Well damn, I want to power my Flux Capacitor with it, what else would you do with it!?!!!!!!!
