    I got the converter harness. Before I cut wires, do I cut into the wires in the signal assembly(where the bulbs are for brake,taillight and trun signals) are or is there a better place to tap into? I will use real wire conectors not the snap in ones.

    K -

    On the 95-97s, there is an OEM plug for the harness - intended for use with the factory tow package - no wiring cutting necessary (located on the PS in the area of the rear cross member). Double check with the pre 95 guys before you start hacking it up!

    Cheers, R -

    The package for my plug-in trailer wiring kit (NAPA number 755-1470/Hoppy 18357) says it is for 91-97 L/C and 93-95 4 Runners. I have the pkg out because I am returning it to NAPA; it failed after only about 5 months of service - they say they will swap it out, no questions. Good Luck, BigMac

    Cool, for some reason I thought it was for 95 and newer. I checked on line and they also say 91 to 97. Its a good thing I asked I almost chopped up the wires and I don't like to solder. The OEM/dealer add on used snap on wire conectors and it didn't work when I got it.
    I will order one and see if it works.

    I looked at some harness and other than Hoppy no one has '95 and older plug in harness. Toyota or the dealer, sells '96+, along with a couple of others.
    If the Hoppy is '91 to '98 and the others only sell '96 to 98,is there a differance between the 96+ and 95 and older tail light wiring?

    Then why wouldn't a 96+ work on my 94?
    Did Toyota sell the harness or is this a out source?

    Toyota offered a splice-in and a plug-in harness. The year model applications escape me at the moment but you can use either one on 91-97. I can tell you that the current OEM converter/harness that is available is WAY TOO MUCH MONEY. In fact, It embarrases me when I have to price one for somebody. It is over a hundred and fifty bucks and easily worth less than 1/3 the aquisition price ::) If my tail light perverter (opps, converter) ever fails I'll replace it with a Hoppy or similar.
