    So this is what I did tonight (in the amount of about 30-45 minutes). Replaced the dual usb cigarette lighter adapter, with a dual usb power port with a voltmeter.
    I disconnected and removed the old cigarette lighter and heat shields and installed the new power port. I cut the old plug off and "repurposed" the factory wires with female spade connectors.
    Hint hint hint....1996 toyota tacoma 2.4L cigarette lighter wire colors are grey/red stripe=positive and white/black stripe=negative.

    My favorite version is making the clock in the truck into a voltmeter. Almost like it came factory like that.

    Id rather make it than buy it
    98 , after installing my Bert's customs high and tight bumer i had to relocate turn signals into marker light housing, as you can see i retain the 194 marker light bulb but i drill a 1" hole approximately 1" below existong socket hole, afyer a small pilot hole my stepdrill made quick work of it , now you fish the dirctional bulb up the marker light housing location, i then took note of the 4 notches on directional socket i marked then on housing with a sharpie, then very carefuly i cut out the 4 notches a little at a time and keep test fiting till it plugs in, i had purchased 2 amber 1156 bulbs one for each side then pugged them in and insert sockets, next reistall marker housing and your all set , no cutting of wires and it looks factory
