    Last fall I got rear ended and he left the scene. He slid into me nearing a stop light during a snowstorm.
    Minor damage to bottom of bumper was done, but took out my towing wiring harness.
    I'm having trouble finding the part that I need, and where to buy it from.
    The rust you see is on the towing receiver. The rest of the truck has a new frame.
    Thank you in advance!

    Looks cool... but my harness is partially broken. I may get one of these but it still doesn't totally cure the issue. Thanks

    Didn't see the amount of destruction....I was half asleep *my bad*

    A cursory search found a Toyota parts number of 82169-04010, but I do not know all the specs on your 2005 to determine if that part number is correct for your model. It's about $180.

    You can always go aftermarket from Amazon. This one is listed as compatible with a 2010, also a 2nd gen. Do your research and find one that you can plug/splice in for a fraction of the cost.

    Wow, maybe I should just pay the $200 deductible and get a new bumper to go along with it!

    Looks like there is quite a bit of corrosion on the connector so you likely need a whole new assembly, not just the mount. I dont remember how the wires are connected to the back side of that if you'll be able to just unplug or if you'll have to cut them and splice into a new connector.

    I guess the question is, of I still can, should I just re-file the claim to get the bumper and harness for $200 deductible? I'm gonna call some salvage yards today first though.
