    I'll take your advice on this. Thanks much appreciated.

    FWIW, since I replaced the whole bumper and no longer had the stock bulb bases for my plate light I went a different way and just replaced the whole harness back to the 4-way under the rear cross member.

    The original harness was a 'Y' to split one connection into the two stock bulbs. So I used one and plugged the other.

    This connector is 90980-10942 from Toyota from the regular 2.3 II series connectors.

    So I used this kit for the housing and two of the terminals and seals:

    And two of these plugs for the circuit I didn't need:

    I already ordered the kit that replaced the bulb you linked above. Although for my application this would've been a better solution. I took a guess and went with the 16-18 gauge wire and the thinnest insulation. Hopefully it will work. I have no clue how to actually wire the plug and seal it, but YouTube should help with that part.
    $13 with priority shipping from Corsa technic, Toyota wanted $67 for the same thing. You sir are the man!

    That license plate light sure is big and clunky. This is the license plate light I run. It’s small, totally sealed, and very bright. I don’t remember where I bought it. There are several sellers that sell it.

    Parts are here, so I'm going to go with it. I'm not sure that this will be a permanent set up as my needs seem to change yearly. The swing gate is nice for the spare, but a huge pain for everything else.

    That one is more streamlined and protected, so I would've went that route. Where were you last week!
