You will need a trailer wiring adapter- should be about $30 bucks from Walmart-
There should be a pigtail connector for a straight hook up
- I think is on the passenger side tail light

Go out and get a Hoppy's or one of the other "plug in" light adaptors. The crimp connector wiring kits always lead to shorts. Plug in takes 15 min and you cant do it wrong unless your trying to.

The 99's arent wired for trailer brakes, I dont think any Tacomas were factory wired for trailer brakes.
I had a Tow Master trailer brake system on my 99 but had lots of problems. It got so bad I took it off and dont run a trailer brake right now. One shop that looked at the system thought Toyotas may require a convertor for the brake signal, I didnt feel like being their guinea pig.
I know the trailer lights require a convertor that is included in most plug in kits.
