    Looks like 16awg

    Might be a bit undersized if both heaters are running at max power, however that wire is just a couple inches long, so maybe not. The wiring harness for the heater kit and the wire I added were both 12 gauge. If you know where to get a 20 amp fuse tap with thicker wire I'd probably pick one up, but I'm not having much luck in my search.

    [EDIT] Found this one, https://www.amazon.com/Chanzon-circuit-Adapter-Automotive-Motorcycle/dp/B083R554LN

    Thanks! I have a few 16g fuse taps laying around but was thinking they might not be up to the task. I'm curious what gauge the wire is going into the fuse panel. I suppose if it's 16g as well then it doesn't matter...

    Is that rubber form fitted for Tacoma? If so where did you get it? Thanks

    You can get vinyl from Rock Auto for our trucks. It's form fitted to the humps in the floor, but you still have to cut all the spots for the brackets, seat belts, trans/t case shifters etc. And you have to trim to fit on the width.

    Do you actually need to remove it, or just need access behind it? I did all my sound deadening without actually removing it, since I didn't want to unbolt the seatbelts.

    I' cover how to get access behind them here: First Gen Tacoma Headliner Removal if that's what you need.

    Last time I bought tires, a cert was more than a single new tire. Didn't make sense.
