    This will help answer your retrofit questions. The Retrofit Source team provide multiple documents for wiring diagram, instructions for Tacoma headlamps.

    In terms of wiring harness layout, read the SlimCubby installation thread by Cabletec below. The same way to tuck the wiring harness above the radiator and zip tie process works very well.

    These links may help you as it did for me. Each link has some nuggets of information.
