    Bump.

    Anyone know where to find one besides the dealer, aftermarket or not? Couldn't find any on ebay. Thanks.

    Not really wanting to thread jack, but my truck came with the adapter for the rear view camera. Why? Does my mirror support it? LOL The adapter was in my glove compartment.

    Looking for a direct Tacoma fit, thanks.
    This seems to be the whole kit, camera and all, thanks though man.
    Mine did too, but was also already pre-wired for it front to back. Guess they just throw it in all models whether they are wired or not.

    Check the Gentex 242BR. Try Googling "Gentex Tacoma."

    As I understand it, the basic 242BR fits the 2009+ Tacoma, but the electrical plug is different. There are some vendors who have a version of the 242BR that plugs right in. I suspect that they are adding a special cable to fit between the mirror and the Tacoma wiring harness.

    Here's one:

    I'm told that the Gentex 352BR with the bigger display will also fit the 2009+ Tacoma, but I don't know for sure, and I don't know if the electrical connectors are the same.

    Thanks Jerry, I'll have to check that out. Really looking for something maybe a little cheaper and a direct fit, but thanks again... I imagine if I have no luck on here with finding one someone is letting go (seems hard) that I will just have to make do.

    Thanks to Jerry Bear I looked up the Gentex's on ebay, and found the 3.5" model that's a direct fit for the Tacoma for a good price.. Thanks again Jerry!
