    Need a little help finding a bracket and/or towing connector for my 2005 Tacoma. Spoke to a local dealer and had no clue!

    Be a bit more precise about what you want and people on here will help you out. I think your post is a bit vague for most.

    Basically, I need to replace the broken/rusty bracket that you can see in the photo. Along with that, I'll replace the 7 pin connector. I spoke with the local Toyota dealer and that had no clue as to what I am talking about. There feeling is that the bracket is part of the trailer hitch. I disagree. They want to sell me the whole wiring harness kit for $95.00, so maybe I'm a little confused?

    The photo should be there? I can see it even when I'm logged out?

    If you look at the trailer hitch, to the left is where the 7 pin connector is located. The connector is attached with a bracket. That bracket is broken and bent up. That's the area I'm talking about.

    Not much yet, got a pretty good sound system w/ my custom sub box. Plan on adding more lights & a tool box.
    Stuff the connector in one of the license plate light holes, once you get the connector. It's just a little sawzalling. Otherwise, come get my bracket.
