    Your truck should have one tucked up under the driver's side bedside that I would suspect you could simply replace. Is there some reason that you would not wish to peruse that route?

    I wasn't sure there was any. It might be used and needs replacement.

    thanks. I'm having hard time finding part online or even diagram for a 2012 Tundra.

    I haven't looked but I'm pretty sure you need to remove the driver side tail light. Remove it and see if you can find a comparable replacement in length.
