Great thread, checked mine out on my 2014 TRD Sport. It seems that on mine Toyota has fixed the problem, because it has what looks to be the equivalent to the Gate Keeper on both sides unless I am missing something.
However, I will need to put the 1/2 inch washers on the cables to keep someone from dropping it on the bumper.
I want to order a Pop and Lock, but just read on here where two guys had theirs freeze/lock up in just a couple of weeks. So I will wait and see how that shakes out.
