Anyone any experience with a location of a constant 12 volt that I can tap my bed lights on? Thanks
Yes. The battery. Run a hot from the battery. Follow existing lines all the way to the bed of the truck. Have a fuse in the line.
You can even get fancy and just install one of these in the cubby. Then have it power the lights and whatever else you might want to use it for.

Recently purchased a Tacoma and I’ve noticed an issue when the auto transmission downshifts into first gear. It makes a loud noise and it feels like it is dropping. I have noticed interesting gear shifts when driving up and down hills, but I’ve read that the transmission will adapt over time. The downshifting problem seems different to me. The truck is new and only has 2,500 miles. I am considering contacting the dealership but I wanted to check here first to see if anyone else has experienced this.
