    i dont know but i cant find one a truck with both the lock and tailgate reverse light

    they make an after market but i have access to a stock tacoma tailgate lock and handle for a 2012 that should fit for only 10$ as opposed to paying 80 for a new

    I agree with the others OP, just spend a bit more to get a compatible handle, or just get the electric pop and lock to use with your remote.

    I used to have an aftermarket down by the hitch and i didn't like it at all because it was very hard to judge how far you were from something. I just recently bought the newer style handle and oem camera. I like it much better because of the angle you can get a better idea of distance. plus in the handle it's more protected. my .02
