    Has anyone installed one of these? If so, what are its PROS and CONS? Also, how involved was the installation? TIA.

    I bought the OEM kit for $129.71 with tax and shipping it came to $140.97. Between the one above and the OEM, I'd go with the OEM. I haven't heard anything bad about the OEM kit and the instructions
    jsinnard provided above is all you need. Looks like it should take about an hour to install. Mine arrives tomorrow.

    The pop and lock has worked well for me, and this is my fifth Taco using the same brand.

    I can't find an OEM one that is for 2021. Maybe they'll offer it by the time I decide to buy one.

    Amazon shows that the OEM fits 2019 and up, not sure about 2021?

    Yep, it fits the 2021. I installed mine 2 weeks ago. Works great and easy to do.

    Were you able to run the wiring harness along the passenger side or does the ‘21 run on the drivers side?

    The OEM works on the 2021. Works great on my 2021 TRD OR DCLB.

    Just keep in mind that I believe there’s 2 versions of the OEM one depending on bed length/cab size.

    Correct. See earlier post above for the part numbers. One for DCSB / ACLB and one for the DCLB.

    Did you run the wiring via the left side of the bed (where the gas receptacle is)? Or the other side? How hard was the installation?

    Interior LEDs, OEM bedmat & divider, BakFlip MX4, Pro wheels. TRD skid, smoked tails.
    The OEM kit is the best kit out there and its cheaper than that too.
