    Hi, I'm new to TW and a novice Tacoma Owner. I've had my 2005 DBL Cab 4X4 L/B w/SR5 pkg #8 since 2006.

    A friend said that the TRD's had a 110V plug located where I have the storage box in the bed of my truck. He said the plug had an on/off switch located in the cab.

    My question is, can I buy the parts to connect to the factory wiring harness in order to have this feature on my truck? I would very much like to be able to plug in a TV while tailgating so that I can watch football while waiting on my game to start.

    Thanks in advance, gald to have found this site.

    It would be way, way easier to just run a 12v accessory outlet to the bed, and buy a standard 120v converter that plugs into that outlet.

    Is the stock one even powerful enough to run a TV? I haven't used mine yet, but I have a 400w inverter and it wouldn't even run a laptop.

    I'd def. go with that 1500w inverter JKD posted.

    Laptop power supplies typically draw under 100 watts; my 150 watt inverter has never had a problem with running one, and the 100w outlet in my wife's Pontiac Vibe always runs them fine.

    Something weird with your 400w inverter, I think.

    I ran a 19" tv and a Directv DVR from my trucks outlet before. Worked fine.

    When the power went out in my neighborhood I was the only one on my street watching infomercials at 2 am.

    Would this have constant power(no need to have key in ignition)?

    Not sure, Im planning on working on this next week. I'll let you know after I try it. If it requires the lights to be on etc, I'm going to add a "hot" 12V in the storage box.
