    I ran a feed from the fuse box in the drivers side kick panel. It gets power when the truck is on. Hid the wire up the A pillar and beneath the headliner.

    I bought a dashcam that runs off a small internal battery for parking mode, so I didn't care too much about having it constantly powered. It works pretty darn well.

    If you hold the lock and unlock on the fob until a beep, it changes the setting from lock/unlock drivers door to lock/unlock all doors, and vice versa.

    This may have been answered but is there a way to turn off the door chime when I leave it open to hop out to do something real quick?

    Not sure if a mod can enable others to edit the original post but I no longer have the Tacoma so I won't be updating the list anymore unless I can get guaranteed proof the items are legitimate since I can't test them myself.
