    Not sure what the other end of the power antenna harness has. I assume there is a relay to power the motor. And the associated harnesses might not connect to what you currently have. If it works out let us know!

    Both my 99’s have a connector in the engine compartment that, in theory, will power the antenna

    People often times take them off to go through car washes. Water collects in the hole and they put the antenna right back on. Eventually rust forms.

    Put some antiseize on the antenna threads to help prevent this

    I am sure you can adapt a aftermarket antenna to work just fine.

    In your part of the world a used one that works might be found around me not so much

    The truck should have a antenna relay someplace above and behind the radio never having looked not sure just where.

    I think I can rob one from a four runner. Even out here the Tacoma’s get picked through very fast, but there are a ton of four runners. Besides it doesn’t seem like that many Tacoma’s had a power antenna option to me.
