    They say my 09 Tocoma is pre-wired for the back up camera
    and I do have the camera in the tail gate. The harness is
    supposed to be in the headliner above the mirror and yes I
    feel a small slot, but before I go pulling down the headliner
    where is the wiring harness and how far do I pull the headliner
    down, I don't want to screw the headliner up. Can I fish for
    the wire with a small hook ? Any help would be appericated.
    I plan om installing a Gentex mirror and their video install seems like
    it's so simple, but they don't mention pulling the headliner down. :cool:

    you could remove the whole map light assembly (1 screw, a few clips) and probably reach in there and get it without have to fish it out

    I didn't buy the whole package. Just a standard model.
