    Hello all,
    I am new to this.
    I have a silver 2006 Tacoma Double cab, with a long bed.
    I haven't really done much to the truck yet, however wanted to try the domelight and map light mod, but was wondering what gauge of wire you all would recomend.
    Also which method is the simplest one you have seen for the fog light mod.
    Thanks,
    -Tim

    Bilstein 5100's all round (0" up front with stock springs), 265/75/16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, K&N 63 Series Aircharger Kit, Flowmaster Super 44 Muffler, Delta Champion Toolbox, fog lights, back-up lights, Sirius satellite radio with PA15-TOY, Midland 1001z CB radio with 2' Firestik II antenna, Weathertech floor mats, AVS sill protectors, Marathon SuperHides Seatcovers (Universal Digital Camo), trimmed front mud flaps, Viair 20005 OBA, Warn W650D driving lights and W650F fog lights on N-Fab light bar, Hi-Lift X-treme jack with off road accessories, TracRac "TracONE" system
    Try some 336AL, possibly 556AL, that should be plenty big enough :D

    Just kidding... I believe most of the wiring installed at the factory is 16 gauge. Perhaps someone can confirm this? 16 should be ample for interior lights. (It's good for about 10 A safely). I have used 14 and 16 for my mods., except for some #10AWG for my auxiliary fuse panel.

    Hope that helps.
