    About a year ago I was driving on a steep jeep trail near Crested Butte CO and managed to break the bracket that holds the trailer hitch 7-pin connector in place. When I spoke to my local Toyota dealership they only sell the bracket with the wiring harness for ~$150. Any idea what to actually call this part so I can sift through online junk yards? Thanks for the help!

    :cool: They make plugs and brackets aftermarket. Redneck trailer, etrailer, northern tool should be able to hook you up.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    7pin flat, truck end.
    If you have a hitch with a square tube between the frame rails, put it in the end of the tube. It will be less exposed to damage. You may need longer trailer wiring though.
