    So I bought all of the OEM parts including the clutch switch. Installed everything easily, only to realize I'm not prewired. Cruisecontrolestore doesn't want to sell just the harness and clutch switch cable to me. Anyone have any ideas. I need about $30 worth of wires and I'm trying to avoid spending another $200 on an entire new kit from them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    No one's answered yet, so I'll give it a shot...
    Try to get your hot little hands on a wiring diagram for your '12 to check terminal locations. I wired my '06 Base this way: Wire from ECM connector E7 pin 2 to cruise control plug on steering column. My sketch is not complete for the plug on the steering wheel end--is it pin 1 of a 12-pin connector? Check the aforementioned wiring diagram. This supplies power to the cruise control switch.
    Run another wire from ECM connector E7 pin 18 to the combination meter (gauge cluster) connector C9 pin 24 to turn on the 'Cruise' light on the dash.
    I also had to run a ground under the steering column from the 12-pin connector (?) pin 2 to ground.
    The clutch switch: you're on your own. Mine is an automatic.
    I used a CD-ROM audio connector from a computer CD drive for the wires from the ECM connector E7. The terminals on the ends of the wires are an almost perfect fit for the plugs in the Tacoma wiring, after you remove the plastic plugs from the CD-ROM audio connector, of course.
    HTH. I did this mod a year and a half ago, and my memory is hazy, as is my sketch of it. If this is somewhat helpful but you need more information, post back or PM me.

    I can sell you the harness that I have. My truck was prewired so I bought it for no reason and couldn't return it. Send me a PM if you want it and I'll dig it up and get some pics to ya.

    Looks like you have good options above, another idea would be to buy the kit, then sell the individual switches, someone with a pre-wired truck would be all over that.

    There is a good write-up over on Toyota Nation. There are (or were) links here or on TN to wiring diagrams. I also made use of the wiring diagrams in the Rostra kit instructions. You can download the Rostra instructions from their website.

    ^^Looks like it just might be your lucky day! If this doesn't work out for you OP, go down to the dealer and make friendly with the parts guy. I bet they could order you a wiring harness.
