    I tore off the 7-pin connector on a rock. I went over to my local trailer place and they said they couldn't due it b/c toyota used proprietary components for the hook-up.

    Just orderd the parts from the dealer..... 216.00 +tax

    Anyone else have to do this?

    I figure I can just install the components myself when the come in, just sucks how much it costs.

    That's what I thought, but the guy over at Longhorn trailers didn't want to miss with the wires, said he'd install it after I got the part from toyota because he didn't have a part that would work....

    ** also I was mad so I already went to the dealership and ordered the replacement, they make you prepay for a "special order" part... I figured they'd have a bunch in-stock

    You could use any 7-pin socket. Probably $10-$20 at a hardware store.

    sounds like that guy was just lazy.
    I would get a refund and see about a cheaper route.

    do you have pics of the damage?

    now you tell me... :facepalm:


    btw, I've backed into 2 different things in a year of having a new 09 taco with a back-up camera.... only backed into 1 think with my old ride in 10 yrs.... maybe the back-up camera is not so great

    hmm Ive never dealt with them before.

    I would, but it was the only way to order the metal mounting plate (it cames with the assembly).. I'll have to look again, but i don't think it was fixable
