    Hi guys. I'm new here but have been following this page for a while. I recently picked up a 2016 Base SR5 Tacoma(QC/short bed) and is wondering if any of you can recommend a descent 3-4" leveling kit that will last but won't break the bank. I'll be using it as a daily driver with some weekend off roading. Any leads will help. Thanks in advance.

    Mods, the Factory Service Manual link at the end of the OP no longer contains downloadable manuals. They received a take-down notice for the content. Just letting you know in case you wanted to remove the link to that site.

    I'm starting to learn a lot more about electrical now. Does splicing into the green wire mean attaching another wire in the middle of the green wire and run it to the fog relay? Or does it mean cut the green wire, attach the cut end to the new wire, and run the green/wire extension from the plug to the fog relay?

    If your are splicing another wire to it, then you just use th quick splice and attach a wire to it, so essentially you would just be connecting a wire to it, just to get the voltage from that wire to the new wire.

    Does this help?

    Splice means connect them together. Cut means cut and use one end.

    Ah I see. Do you need the quick splice thing? Can I wrap another wire around the existing wire and solder it?

    Solder and shrink tube would be best. Especially the marine grade shrink tube with adhesive inside. That would help prevent corrosion if you deal with snow and road salt. Those quick splices are quick n easy, but they leave copper exposed to the elements.

    You dont need it, but it makes things simpler, and i can be removed later on if needed, with minimal damage to original wire.

    I didn't either until I went to use some I'd just grabbed from a store. I noticed something bubbling out from the end when I heated it. At first I thought I'd melted the insulation, but then I read the packaging later.

    I inadvertently picked some of this up at Harbor Freight the other day, and have to say I like it better than regular because of the adhesive that comes out.
