    I'm sure this has been covered before somewhere on here, but can someone recommend a wiring harness that plugs/ piggybacks into my rear lighting harness? 2014 Tacoma 4x4 base model, regular cab, 2.7? The trailer has a 4 pin connection, 3 male, one female. Thanks.

    You need something like this

    You simply need a 7 to 4 pin adaptor http://www.amazon.com/Reese-Towpowe...TF8&qid=1442424495&sr=8-1&keywords=7+to+4+pin

    To the OP: the Amazon price is pretty good. If you're in a bit of a hurry, just buy it there.

    If you have no rush and want to dink around a bit, you can also enter the P/N in eBay and find various units for sale, sometimes for lunch money less.

    Edit: I picked up one last night from eBay, under $30, including shipping. Thanks for reminding me I needed one. :anonymous: I put the hitch on more to use my bed extender for the kayaks, and a bike rack, than to tow. But you never know when it could be handy to be able to pull a small load. So prudent to have the lighting in place.

    Never had any leaks or sign of leaks anywhere. I needed a quick oil change a few weeks back and pulled into one of the quick change, try to sell you everything type of drive through joints.

    I assume they checked diff fluid and spilled some. No leaks though, just that oil stain which i will clean up so its easy to spot leaks later.

    Any tips on that, anyway? What is best to clean the diff off with?

    It's not really worth messing with IMHO.

    However, if you want your rear clean, some Simple Green, Fantastic, a solution of Dawn and water, along with a couple of old rags and some elbow grease should do it for you. Don't forget to buff up the brake lines while you're under there. o_O
