    My first thought was the 12v in your trailer wiring, but a quick google search shows it’s keyed. You may have to run into the cab (driver side) and use the wiring under the kickplate, it’s not that far....

    Yup, big bundle of wires under there. sorry can’t be more help beyond this as I’ve got a 2nd gen, but somebody on here should know of a constant hot in that area...

    You could also use one of these “add a circuits” to your fuse panel near your left knee when driving. Again, not sure if/what is constant hot in your 3rd gen but something may be. These are cool cause you don’t have to cut anything, you need this specific “low profile mini fuse” for our tundras....must say “low profile”...can’t stress that enough

    All finished! Routed a wire up the drivers side frame to the battery. Super easy. Thanks for all your help. This is the best forum ever!

    Bed lights were my first project after stumbling onto this site 6 months ago, too. That was just the beginning...next was switching most of the 12v outlets to USB within cab. Then the anytime fog light mod (Eddies Mod) followed by Baja Designs Squadron Sport fog lights (wide cornering, amber lense) and switching interior lights to led. This site is awesome, good luck
