    Fitment was great and went on smoothly. It's so simple yet badass that I don't see how you can improve it. Maybe put a Toyota logo on it? I don't know. Lol

    All good brother.

    What matters is that your harness will be out of danger.

    Man, I should have had one of these on my last trip. Does anyone have a full towing harness that the THRB relocates? Mine is mangled... see my want ad. Would like to get a replacement that I can just plug in. The plug is critical, the bracket that goes on the hitch to hold the plug in factory location is not critical...

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/wtb-towing-harness-and-mount.569058/

    Thanks for any leads!

    If you're unable to find a factory Toyota plug this might help:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/7-pin-trailer-harness-plug-replacement-tip.288024/
    It's a Honda harness identical to Toyota's and it's only around $50 (vs. $175 from Toyota).

    You will need to swap out a few pins, not hard at all.
    For about $50, 2 hours of your time and one THRB you'll be golden.
    :cool:

    Good luck mate!
    :cheers:

    Got mine installed, on the whole I like it, fit and finish is good. However, you asked for comments. I suggest the holes used to attach the THRB to the truck be drilled and tapped all the way through to the bungee cord opening. As it is now you supply 3/4 inch screws. The truck bracket is about 1/8 inch thick and its weld nut is another 1/4 inch thick (see picture above). This results in the THRB being held to the truck by 1/4 - 3/8 inch of screw thread. I attempted to use 1 inch screws, and that is when I discovered the holes were not deep enough to accommodate a 1 inch screw.

    I am still thinking about drilling out and tapping the THRB but it started to rain and so its currently installed stock w/no mods.

    Edit: Andres, you supply SS screws. The THRB is aluminium. I suggest to include a note recommending a drop of blue Loctite or a dab of anti-seize on the screws.

    Mine came with 4 - 3/4 inch SS hex head. I believe 1/4 20 thread. Please post pictures, how do they not work?
