    I'm fixing to pull the trigger on a Back Up camera for my 2014 Tacoma

    Checked and seems it's all good to go as far as wiring:}

    My question/dilemma is do I buy the Pop N Lock unit camera installed with separate keys to unlock the tailgate or the Pop N lock unit that allows me to simply use my original Toyota Key to unlock the tailgate?

    Does anyone have a preference of which they like or wish they had bought instead? :confused:

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Just yesterday I bought the one that uses the original Toyota key. I figured why carry around an extra key, I got plenty already. Hope your install goes well! I'm waiting for mine in the mail.

    I did the basic kit and don't like it very much. Eventually I'll redo it and get the one that will use the ignition key and work with the remote locks.

    ^^^This...PL8540. Seems to be an easy install, can use Ign Key or open with fob.

    Here is a thread on installing (it's an add-on to existing P&L, but the wiring part is the same for the 8540):

    Got the original keyed one when I bought my truck three years ago. I'll buy the one that uses the ignition key if I get a new truck. Hopefully by then the Tacomas will come with one from the factory.

    Yeah I agree the handle feels loose and not very high quality. I don't imagine it will break easily, just crappie fit that makes it jiggle easily

    I went with the electric pop-a-lock. It did not have any effect on my factory back up camera. Hooked it into the drivers side rear passenger door lock wiring. Works great.

    Is this the one that works with your key fob? I like NOT having to deal with an extra key. Only issue would be if you want to get in the bed and forget (or too lazy) to get you key. :)
