Been about a month since I picked up my truck and started modifying it so it’s become time to create a build thread. I ordered this truck back in August and after a 2 month wait it came in exactly what I wanted. I’ve had the Toyota truck bug for quite a while. Like many others I came over here from Tacomaworld. I had a 2010 Mid travel Tacoma I absolutely adored but when the Mrs went back to school I sold the truck so I could cash in. Here is the build thread on the Tacoma, if you came over here from that site you will probably recognize my truck (https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/jsenclosures-build-thread.92593/). Well now that the Mrs is done with school it was time to get back into a new truck and since I am a bit of a gearhead and sportsman I knew I needed a full size truck that could tow. I’ve always like the Tundras and so it was an obvious choice for me.

Welcome! I too came from Tacomaworld. I recognize your username. My username over there is MacGyver. I still post on TW from time to time. Nice choice on the MGM crewmax, that's what I have too.

I'm on my 2nd Tundra now after my Taco. I had a '13 double cab SR5 but traded it for the crewmax for family space needs.

Here's my old taco:

Is there an existing harness back there for the oem bed light kit?

No, it comes with it's own harness that runs up to the driver side kick panel

Ok cool. Just checking. I bought some led strips to put on the underside of the roof in my camper shell. Was curious if I could tap into a harness back there. I guess I'll just run a relay off of the kick panel switch.

You don't need a relay if you're using led strips

I was going to run a separate power feed back there since I'm going to hook up a 12v cigarette plug and dual usb outlets in the bed. You're right though, I could just run a wire back there from the switch since the led strips don't draw a lot of power.
