    I am barrowing my in-laws trailer and Polaris ranger this weekend. The trailer has a 7 pin light hook up. My 98 Tacoma only has a 4 pin.

    What do you think...

    Buy the adapter or rewire for the truck for 7 pin?

    Does the trailer have brakes? If not, buy the adapter, if it does, your call depending on the weight. If you need the brakes, rewire the truck or rent a uhaul with surge brakes.

    Trailer does have breaks, but I don't need them for this trip. Going to be hauling from Phoenix up to Windover, NV for speed week.

    If you don't want to buy an adapter, you can just buy a cheap 4 way wire that connects to your truck and then open up the 7 way plug on the trailer and insert the 4 wires into the correct spots on the plug. You can then use some electrical tape to make sure everything stays together and that you also don't lose any screws.
