    I have an 05 DC 4x4 SR5 nonTRD. The trd bed outlets looks nice for camping and such, doubt I would use them for much else, but was consider getting an inverter and doing a custom mod.

    But I noticed in a thread about adding a fog light switch that some of the connectors are behind the blank plug. If the wiring is there, would it be possible to get the parts and install the switch, inverter, and bed outlet?

    Seems a better option, juts not sure what parts are required or how much would be involved......is it it possible?

    IIRC some folks looked at doing them and the little cubbies and stuff were insane expensive (like 200+ bucks for the plug/plastic) and the size of the inverter is limited. You are probably better off wiring an inverter directly into the bed or something, as far as $$ is concerned.

    I'd fab an outlet and install an inverter under the hood. Minding they are not water or heat friendly. There's lots of room on the fenders... run an extension cord out back and mount it somewhere. Switch it from the ignition or with a relay direct to battery. only 400watts with factory.. 2000 would be an easy walmart trip.

    But would you be able to get it look to stock? The thing is if the wire is there. There are plenty of wrecking yards with tacomas in them, anyone have the part list or an idea of whar I would need, if the wiring is already rigged in the truck?

    I never use that thing. But "IF" I were in your position? I would install a better inverter under the console where the stock one is located, and just put the outlets on the back of the console.

    Its under the console? I didn't see it. Though I did trace the wires back to under the seat.

    I was thinking of doing that exact thing however for interior space and it would be way too tight. Not only would I have to remove the cover from the smallest (400 watt) inverter I could find but it would probably overheat.
