    Tri-fold Tonneau cover & chrome step bars. Domed liquid chrome tailgate letters. Tailgate Strip Light Bar.
    I purchased and installed tail gate strip light on my 2018 Tacoma. They hook in with the 4 pin on the towing plug. I don't know much about the towing accessory but is there an adapter
    that the 4 pin could plug into and then plug into the round plug behind the bumper? May be a stupid question but trying to get a clean look! Thanks in advance!

    I think something like this should work. It plugs in behind the bumper.

    I'm not 100% positive on this, so check for yourself. I think this will work only if you already have a 7-pin plug in the bumper. If no 7-pin, the dealer can order the adapter for the factory wiring harness.
