    Yup, I used this tutorial when I installed yesterday. Took me about 30 minutes because I take my time.

    The OEM handle definitely operates smoother but this is pretty good for an aftermarket replacement.

    Does this handle work with the '05 tacomas? I want to install a camera and also buy a pop and lock so this would be great for me. Let me know. Thanks. :)

    I could be mistaken but all the pop and lock pl5300 models are made for the tacomas with and without the back up cameras. I know my pl5300 works fine with the camera.

    Heres another link http://truckalterations.com/html/popnlock.html

    Yes I am correct. I simply went on the Pop & Lock site ( http://popandlock.net/ ) and it says "Toyota Tacoma 2009 & Up! All new Tacoma models are covered by the PL5300 for trucks with and without the factory mounted backup camera."

    None yet.
    Just a quick question for you. My son and I have tried twice to install but we could not mount the cam in the POP & LOCK. Is their a new piece to install the cam into as we received nothing? We tried to use the existing one in the OEM and for the life of us could not get it to fit. I just want to ck before we try again using your great pictures. Thanks.

    Yeah, i used this write-up to install mine and it was golden!! Great write-up.

    Only problem i had was at this step. My cable routing was not what i wanted the first time and that was a pain in the ass to unplug the camera once it is mated with the clip. Since the camera plug is inverted from the factory location in the PnL the release for the camera clip is hard to access once it is clipped in. I was squeezing the hell outa that thing and it would not budge. Had to use a screw driver to press in the detent thing to get it released... Other than that it was simple.

    ______________________________________________

    Routing the cam harness cable
    Here is a before and after shot. The cable as you can see in black is where it is run by the factory, highlighted in orange is how to run the cable in order to facilitate the cam on the other side of the handle.
    Once I re routed the cable I used insulation tape to hold it down right at #2 on the picture

    The cover of the PopNLock in the first post says 2009 and Up. But when i was reading the group buy,it read 2005 thru 2009.

    Was wondering if they have a Tailgate handle without lock just for the camera? I'm getting the undercover SE that alrady has a lock in the middle of the cover and don't need double locks...

    i have the Kenwood DDX 512 and Kenwood CCD 2000 Camera. Will that camera fit into a handle?
