    @benca1 did you end up adding bed lights or finding a way to do so? I'm wondering if the OEM parts can be ordered and added later--even if it means adding the hole manually?

    Nope I think that was a dumb move by Toyota just like not being able to added limited or above taillights for the tailgate switch.

    When I had my 2019 Tacoma with no bed light, this is what I did. I manual cut the hole out in my bed and installed the bed light. I use this video as reference. I plan to do this exact same thing to the Tundra. I just got to find the bed light part number.

    This doesn't surprise me too much. People on the forum have already investigated the following:
    • No pre-wiring for the tailgate switch on SR5 & SR models
    • No pre-wiring for the TRD Pro light bar on any model
    • No pre-wiring for rear seat USB-C/power outlets if your truck wasn't optioned with it
    • No pre-wiring for the front fog lights if you're truck is an SR without it (99% sure on this)
    Having no pre-wiring for the bed lights does not surprise me in the slightest bit.

    It used to be that manufacturers would just make 1 wiring harness for each area and leave things unplugged if the truck wasn't optioned for it. It was efficient. Now-a-days, I guess the cost-savings of producing multiple wiring harnesses outweighs the lost efficiency of requiring multiple assembly processes.

    The Tundra PN is 8151A0C010 and you’ll need to order two.
    Haven’t bought them yet but I plan on doing this mod.
