    Got trailer wiring kit from NAPA, says look for hook up 6-12 inches from
    bumper. Can't find where to hook wiring pig tail into, any ideas where
    to hook wiring up.

    my guess would be you have to pull the taillights and hook it up there.

    I have lots of ideas of were to hook the wires up at.

    05-11 Wire Colors-

    Tail-light - Green
    Brake Light - Blue
    LH Turn Signal - Blue/Brown
    RH Turn Signal - Blue/Yellow
    -12V Common - Black/white

    Make sure you have the right harness, a domestic harness will not work as japanese vehicles usually have separate amber turn signals.

    You do NOT have to pull the taillights- you can get to the wiring harness from behind the bumper fairly easily. Might have to open up some wire loom, but they are there.

    I found it easiest to pull the. taillight. You can physically see which wire goes to what and do the work standing up at the tailgate.
