    Got a 2006 tacoma with factory installed trailer wiring, the plug under the bumper is a bit banged up, does anyone know if there is a repair kit for this available thru taco? Is there a central gang plug up under the body so it would be a easy replace? Thanks jeff

    Thanks guys, my set up is a 4 pin , I don't really need a 7 pin setup. I am wondering if there isn't a gang plug up in the bed/tail light area that I might just unplug and replace. jeff

    yes, there is a plug about a 1' 1/2" up from the trailer plug part. i don't have a pic of where it plugs in, but here is one with it off.

    Thanks to everyone, when the weather breaks this weekend I will get under my truck an follow that wire setup back to the source. My plug is basically a flat four plug not the plug shown above... I was hoping that Toyota might just make a replacement , I will drop by the dealership and ask them. If not I will make a trip to wallyworld or NAPA. Thanks again, Jeff

    Crawled under my truck, as I figured there is a connector plug to the wiring harness, went over to the local dealer and you cannot just order the trailer plug and assocaited wire, up to the plug....in order to get such a simple thing you have to order $92.00 worth of wiring.
    No way , so I went to Wallyworld and got a flat four set of trailer connectors and replaced the plug on the truck...simple enough...of course the bracket holding the plug to the frame hitch snapped due to rust but thats not a huge problem...thanks again for all the suggestions. MJEFF
