    I'm also reluctant to hack up the factory wiring. One option that you may want to consider is to use one of these.

    https://www.amazon.com/CURT-56584-Custom-Wiring-Harness/dp/B007EA6WQU

    You could use it to get easy access to the brake light wiring. It would require a minor mod, but that would be to the adaptor harness - not the truck. PM me if you have questions.

    Edit: Here's a pin-out.

    Sweet, thats exactly what I needed. I was looking at the other trailer kits that that cost $60, this one will give me what I need for half the price.

    That’s right before I installed that side. Holding the new one, oem still on mirror. Got them from car trim.com 60 bucks. Easy enough that if they go back I’ll slap on oem

    Did you wash the vehicle then use the park brake right after? I had the same thing happen to mine. Washed, parked in my garage, set the brake. Next day it was locked, had to rock it a bit to free it. Dealer couldn’t find any problem. Only use it now when needed and only 2 clicks. So far so good.

    Not a “today”. More of a “lately”...
    Got the stock suspension changed out finally. Local shop there installed them. Also got EBC brakes up front and heavier duty shoes and drums at back installed from/by them.

    Wheels should be coming in hot in mid-April.

    Tires are just sitting and waiting.
    Not sure what to do with these...
    Added some load bars to the cab side panel of the DB cover and relocated the Maxtrax that was on the underside of the bed rack onto them.
    It wasn’t staying open on its own at first (maybe, I didn’t open it far enough or the weather was affecting the struts) But, today, the panel cover was able to stay open on its own.
    Changed out to the new Mountain Hatch BRCC tailgate cover

    Black, tan and red theme is coming along nicely, so far. Been getting all this done to the truck the past three weeks or so.

    haha.. a neighbor is playing their piano or keyboard as I type. Good to hear some are taking all this social distancing fairly well.

    I’ve read somewhere else on TW that if you set the park brake before it dries up it may lock up. I’ve not had the problem since that one time ‘cause I don’t set it wet.

    Installed Running for Tacos Tail gate letters, such an improvement. Removed V6 Badge, clean tailgate now. Tail-badge_2.jpg

    Installed black overlays on the Chrome TACOMA side badges.

    Replaced dim reddish map lights with Meso LED Map lights, awesome light now. Hope they get some dome LED's back in soon.
