Run a x2 in the Tacoma and the G. The Tacoma has 2yrs of flawless service with more battery draw-down and charge cycles than most sane people should ever see.
Yep that's why I went with the X2. I heard nothing but good things and the warranty is sick.

Can anyone confirm which wires to tap for load resistor for front turn signal bulbs (LED)?

No, no, that's not the point. If I'm understanding this right, this if for the rear only, where the extra caliper is activated by hand, turning our useless parking brake into an honest-2-god hand-brake!

Whoa! I think that just blew my mind. I mean, slim to none (mostly none) chance I actually move on this, but the idea is so cool. I hate our lame parking brake.

Oh, I know the dual rear caliper is for supa-drifto madness. Fine, good. Separate from the original brake so you can handbrake the rears to an actual stop (initiating the drift) without hitting the full-vehicle brakes which would lose momentum.

I want to maximize loss of momentum. So... dual front calipers. Porsche 926 ish.

That's meant for a separate hydraulic handbrake system for drifting without locking up the front wheels.

Also isnt the parking brake cable actuated on a drum brake?

Only way that's gonna work is if you replace that with a hydraulic hand brake

Yeah, it sucks. Little shoes on the backside of the rear rotors.

You know, my kid's 2013 Sentra has a proper hand brake. And my wife's 2018 Forester has a proper hand brake. But the parking brake in my G is only good for, well parking.

When I was young, I developed this habit of hand-braking in particular situations involving traffic cops. It became kind of an instinctive thing, and I find myself doing that occasionally even today. Muscle memory, I guess, IDK. I'm not saying it's rational, or even effective (LOL), but it happens. And when it happens driving the G, which is more likely than the other two cars, the limp parking brake masquerading as a hand-brake... it just p1sses me off.

I don't care about drifting, but the idea of having a proper hand-brake caught my attention. But no, two calipers looks kind of dumb.

Follow-on, anyone know which wires to tap into for load resistor? Couldn't find answer after looking through several threads in tech forum.

Verify with a multimeter, but the greens are likely the power for parking and turn flash, and the white is ground. I'd put it on the ground.

I used a type 7443 plug and play resistors that I got on Amazon for mine so I didn't have to cut into the factory harness, so you always have that as an option. But you may want to check out this post regarding the headlight wiring and see if it helps.
