    Assuming you mean the 12v power outlet, the one in my center console has white w black stripe for ground and yellow for 12v ignition power. I believe the one in my dash is the same but I just put in my blue sea last night so I would have to take things apart to triple-check. I remember the ground being white with black. The ground is also the larger of the two connectors, power is narrower as you can see in the socket once you remove it. The center pin is power and it's the narrower one of the blades.

    Purple sounds right too now that you mention it. It was dark and I didn't remove them from the connector and it's got harness on the back and not a ton of extra wiggle room. 99% confident white w black is ground, 100% if you confirm it's wider than the purple one.

    Just removed Tacoma badges from doors and V6 from tailgate. Probably remove decals on side of bed, thinking about replacing them with something more unique. Then it'll be time starting planning full paint correction so I can ceramic coat truck and windows.

    Yes, I've checked it and some oil is present. It works and is easy to maintain.

    Not an idiot! The only stupid question is the one that's never asked! We're here to help one another and share a common passion.
    The Jowett filter cover replaces your plastic OEM filter cover and has a drain valve mounted to it. Helps make oil changes quick, easy and without the mess of the OEM filter cover. Add the Fumoto valve to your oil pan, a piece of 3/8" tubing to the nipple of each one and it almost makes doing an oil change a pleasure.
    Hope that explains it. If you ever have 2nd thoughts about asking a question, don't. We feed off each other here. If your still hesitant about asking a question feel free to burn me a PM and I'll be happy to help if I can.

    Welcome to TW Ryan! Today I'm answering your question, tomorrow you may be answering mine.

    Looking to modify!
    Finished installing my Cali Raised Accessory 8 Switch :D This is a game changer compared to having those cheap harnesses with multiple buttons, individual wires and fuses running right from the battery!!!! The instructions were wrong so I had to label everything. I thought me switch was broken when I first wired everything up :p

    I also put a small cutout of tint over my volt meter to lower down the brightness. Saw another TW members mention it earlier on. It definitely helps!!!

    Is that a ghetto box or did it come with the switch?

    Two weeks. The thing works great.

    In my old truck I had an Alpine iLX-107. It took the same amount of time to connect phone with truck as this device does.

    I mounted it with heavy duty mounting tape here under the dash to the left.

    Only see this knob/button thing on the dash with a custom switch plate. Sure looks better than the Tekonsha knee knocker I was going to transfer form my old Jeep.
