Toyota Tacoma Questions

  • It is not difficult to determine if your Tacoma has the tow package wiring in place. If your Tacoma has the OEM 7-way trailer connector installed, the vehicle is indeed prewired for a brake controller. The # 3040-P wiring harness would plug into the connector located near the emergency brake pedal as shown in the photo I edited for you. Make sure the white ground wire with the ring terminal is grounded to bare metal under the dash. If you do NOT have the OEM 7-way, the...

  • You will need several items to add electric brakes to your Carry-On Utility trailer. Starting with the trailer you will need a hub and drum that matches the bearings and seal on your trailer spindle and your wheel bolt pattern. The only way to be sure is to check the bearing part numbers and seal part number, but with a 3,500 lbs Dexter axle that has brake mounting flanges you will most likely have the # L44649 Outer and # L68149 inner bearings and # 58846 seal. If these are the...

  • Pop and Lock does have the manual locking tailgate handle, # PAL5500, that will work with your 2015 Toyota Tacoma with backup camera. You can turn it into a power locking handle by adding conversion kit # PAL8525.

  • Since your 2013 Toyota Tacoma has a factory tow package, including a 7-way connector at the back bumper, it will have a brake controller connector. While it is usually visible above the emergency brake pedal, it may sometimes be taped or zip-tied to other wiring. You can try checking further up under the dash panel. If not there, the connector may be tucked in behind the left hand kick panel. Please refer to the attached photo. The Tekonsha installation instructions for...

  • It sounds like you have a factory 7-Way connector on your 2012 Toyota Tacoma and that you also have the dealer supplied electric brake controller wiring harness for wiring an electric brake controller in the cab of your vehicle. Since your boat trailer is equipped with surge brakes, you will not need to install an electric brake controller in the cab of your Tacoma. The first thing you should do is check the center pole, see photo, in the 7-Way connector on your vehicle...

  • The # 3040-P is indeed the correct brake control wiring adapter for your 2015 Tacoma. Due to the presence of the knee airbag, the preferred location to the right of the steering column might not be feasible. If there's not a suitable location to the right of the steering column where the controller could be mounted so that it's parallel to the direction of travel, you'll need to consider an alternate spot. If you watch one of the videos I've linked you to, you can see the controller...

  • The installation of the Tekonsha P2 Brake Controller # 90885 and Wiring Harness,# 3040-P, could not be more simple on your 2011 Toyota Tacoma with tow package. The truck will have a wiring harness up under the dash, to the right of the steering column (the plug could also be left of the steering column above the emergency brake pedal). All you have to do is plug in the brake controller wiring harness to it, ground the additional white ground wire to a bare metal surface or existing...

  • You have a short circuit somewhere that is causing the fuse to blow. To determine where the short is start by disconnecting the trailer from the tow vehicle. Replace the fuse and then use a circuit tester such as # 3808 to test the vehicle side trailer connector while someone sits in the vehicle and turns on the running lights. If it shows power and the fuse does not blow then the issue is on the trailer. If it does blow the fuse then the issue is on the vehicle. Likely...

  • The radial tires at size 175/80-13, are going to be 7 inches wide; too wide to be able to fit without incident on your trailer, so you will need to go with a bias ply tire. The wheels that we carry, unless otherwise noted, have a zero offset. This means that the extra width will be split evenly on each side of the tire. However, there will be very little room if you just have 1-3/4 inches of clearance. Make sure you double and triple check the measurements before ordering. As...

  • The biggest reason that transmission cooler manufacturers and vehicle manufacturers want transmission coolers installed after the factory cooler rather than before it is because the transmission cooler in the radiator is surrounded by the coolant in the radiator. The transmission fluid leaving the radiator mounted cooler can be cooled further by the aftermarket transmission cooler. Installation before the OEM radiator mounted transmission fluid cooler would negate most or all...

  • I can help you out, no problem. What you are going to want to look at is the towing capacities of the truck. You need to know the gross combined weight rating. This is the most the vehicle, including cargo and occupants, plus the trailer can weigh. This information is usually in the owners manual or on a sticker in the door jamb. Looking at an online copy of the owners manual the 4 liter V6 model of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 4-wheel drive could have one of several capacities...

You will use existing holes in the vehicle to run the wiring. I am including a link to a video of the # PAL8521 tailgate lock being installed on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma.

  • All of the bull bars and grille guards offered for your 2014 Toyota Tacoma will require removal of the factory skid plate for installation. However, the skid plate may be re-installed after some necessary trimming to accommodate the mounting points for the bull bar. Westin offers their Ultimate Bull Bar in both chrome-plated-steel, part # 32-1600, and in black powder-coat finish on steel, part # 32-1605. My contact there confirmed these will fit your 2014 Tacoma. The installation...

  • We have two bike racks that will work well with the bed rail system on your 2013 Toyota Tacoma. The RockyMounts DriveShaft SD, # RKY1085, that you referenced will fit and works with standard fork mount bikes as well as 15-mm and 20-mm thru axle bikes. I have attached a video showing how this bike rack attaches to a bed rail system for you to check out. If you do not have a thru axle bike, another bike rack that you may be interested in is the RockyMounts Clutch SD, # RKY011....

  • The controller is only putting out voltage when the manual switch is applied on the brake controller, but not when the vehicle brakes are applied, is that correct? The most likely problem is that the controller is not getting the input that the vehicle brakes are being applied. When the trailer is hitched up with the transmission in park, use a circuit tester like part # 3808 on the red wire exiting the rear of the controller. You should show voltage on the wire when the trucks...

  • I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885 and wiring harness adapter part # 3040-P for your 2005 Toyota Tacoma with tow package. This is a proportional brake controller that will apply power to the trailer brakes in proportion to the braking action of your vehicle. The adapter will plug into the back of the brake controller and the other end will plug into the factory brake controller port on your vehicle. There will be an additional white ground...

I have attached the installation instructions for asked about. No drilling is required to install this hitch, but you will need a torque wrench like part # ALL944001.

  • The towing capacity of your 1996 Toyota Tacoma will depend on if your truck has a V6 or a 4 cylinder and if it is a 4X4 or a 4X2. I have listed the towing capacities of the different options for the Toyota Tacoma below. 4X4 V6 - 8,300 lbs 4X4 4 Cyl. - 7,400 lbs 4X2 V6 - 8,300 lbs 4X2 4 Cyl. - 3,500 lbs You can verify the towing capacity of your truck by checking your owners manual or contacting a local Toyota dealer with your vehicle identification number.

  • The team at Pop and Lock advise that the # PAL5400 locking tailgate handle is indeed compatible with the backup camera on your 2013 Tacoma. The camera installs in the slot in the back of the tailgate handle housing. There is a small knock-out panel on the underside of the housing that needs to be removed. I have included a photo that shows where the camera mounts.

  • The electric brake control harness on your 2012 Toyota Tacoma will be located underneath the drivers side dash to the left of the steering column. It should be taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. It will be a 5-pin connector. I have attached a photo showing the location of this harness as well as the installation instructions for the Plug-In Adapter from Tekonsha, # 3040-P, for you to check out.
