We have a number of hardwire kit options for you to be able to wire your wife's 2019 Toyota Tacoma so that the tail lights function in sync with your Ram while towing the Tacoma. A kit like the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 4-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15247 is a great option. This kit includes the wiring, diodes, Tacoma-side connector, and umbilical connector to connect the Tacoma to a 7-way wiring connector on your Ram 2500.

If you'd rather go with a non-hardwire option, one of our most popular magnetic tow light options is the Optronics Heavy Duty Magnetic Tow Lights # TL21RK. These lights are totally independent of the truck's lights so you would not need to hardwire anything. The lights would mount in an easily viewable place on the truck body and the wiring harness would be ran along the truck to connect to your Ram 2500's trailer wiring.

Before flat towing your Tacoma, I recommend referring to your owner's manual to see what it says about flat towing, or dinghy towing, the vehicle. There may be other ways to tow the Tacoma, but based on my research Toyota does not recommend towing the truck with all 4 wheels on the ground.
