    Thanks for the good words, Greg. Was great to meet up with you and help out with the install.

    When the warm weather rolls around again, I think you'll be able fully appreciate how handy the mod is. :D

    Thanks again!

    Hey, weird random bump, but if anyone was wondering the window regulator part number for the entire assembly, its 73290-SJC-A01 i just was looking to do this mod on my 2015 and figured it was worth sharing.

    I saw that BenWA was making a kit at one point. Wonder why no one else has produced one since. I found other forums pointing to his thread. There seems to be a good amount of demand for a power rear window.

    I'm still questioning how Toyota hasn't figured this one out. I asked a deal once about it and his response was... "Well the Tundra has one."

    Maybe someday.

    No its a Honda Ridgeline rear assembly. If you look at what BenWA did, thats what he junk picked from the local pull-a-part, so it will need some modifications. (like resizing the slider to fit a tacoma window 12") Im going to design a similar mount for the window, but make it easier to mount. I will post up some photos in the comming weeks.

    @Bluemarising, I was just wondering if you had figured out which mount would be better to use than the one BenWa used. I found a mount for Saturn that might work but figured I would see if you had any luck first.

    Heads up I am taking a list or interest/ group buy for my kit. It will have a proper actuator design and come with brackets needed. It will be hidden behind seat, use a quieter motor and have the perfect strength so It doesn't slam the window or take to long to open/ close

    You can sign me up for a kit, that is depending on the price. Trying to find the correct parts while doing a million other things seems very futile.

    Probably looking $250 but hoping to sell them cheaper! Have two designs they are being tested.
