Wiring help

I ended up turning the bed from my 97 Taco into a trailer and am having trouble with the wiring. I would like to use the stock taillights, and use all of the correct bulbs, i.e. turn signals, reverse.ect.... I Need 6 wires to do it, but i don't want to use a regular 6 pin trailer connector because if someone needs to borrow it, they won't know that it's not a standard 6 pin, and i don't want to fry anything.

Does anyone have any ideas on what type of connector to use that won't get mixed up with a regular 6 pin trailer connector. I will also be wiring up a regular flat 4 connector incase anyone of my friends or family need to use it.

Thanks
Steve

I think this was covered before but couldn't find it via search. Am I correct in recalling there's an interface/adapter that makes the Taco vehicle wiring compatible with standard connectors? If so, that seems to be the best route to take.

Good luck on that one.

What about seperate turn signals and brake lights? most of the trailer connectors seem to combine the Left Turn/Brake and Right Turn/Brake lights. I would like to seperate them since the taco brake lights and turn signals have seperate bulbs

Doh....I get it now. You want to maintain the stock split turn/brake lights on the trailer. This was where I was heading but I see where it won't solve your particular needs:

Taco Trailer Harness Conversion (4x4 only)

Sorry I can't help and how about posting up when you hit on the solution.
