    Hello,
    2nd post here. I have 2007 Xtra Cab 4cyl (about 3 weeks now) and I would like to add the power outlet to the bed. I've been reading here and there hasn't been a lot of talk about it on here.

    Does anyone by chance know the part number for the stock outlet in the bed (or any good looking alternatives)? I want a stock look.

    I will probably use an aftermarket switched inverter (those are fairly inexpensive around the 600-800W range). I'll probably use it for tailgating and camping (Small TV, Coffee pot, etc).

    If anyone has done it....I would appreciate any advice! :D

    Thank you!!
    Robert

    I think some folks looked into it and found out that the parts are uber-expensive. Like several hunderd bones for just the trim kit and cubby hole.

    cant agree with that..........when i had my 06, the plug in came in handy lots of times!! if it werent for cost.....it would be totally worthwhile.

    what about seeing if there is a wrecked trd tacoma at a junkyard and taking the stuff off it??

    I've been looking to do the same mod. If it is unreasonably expensive, I am just going to get one of those outdoor style power outlets and put it in one of the cubbys.

    Well, for tailgating and camping I think the thing would come in handy. It would also be great to be able to charge some tools when I am not near a power source. I don't need a generator's worth of power.

    I thought about using an outdoor plug too in the cubby on the right. There is a boat store nearby that might have a good marine plug. I haven't found an outdoor that I like though, but for function....it would probably work fine.

    Are the 2008 Pre runner Tacomas pre wired for the 115V/400W Deck Power Point even if it didn't come with one?
