Thanks RenoMan, however, had that one (it is just for the hitch). Need the one for the harness.
Oops, sorry. But it looks like you got the answer. Welcome to the madness.

Re: trailer hitch harness (done ... with custom mods)

Harness is done. Help supplied by the forum did the trick.
Did not like the stock location of the plug. Would have to lengthen the
harness from the trailer to fit and also would have to get down on knees
to plug it in.

Here's what I did:

Fabricated a new aluminum bracket to mount to an existing frame hole


Rerouted the harness wires slightly to make them long enough to
reach the new location.


When you stand back, the bracket is the same as the gray facia. Now it's
easy to use!

nice job!

I'll have to wait and see how mine comes. It sure seems to make sense putting it where you did. I might have to twist the arm of a buddy to build me a bracket like that one

Very nice!

By the way, did you like the piece of styro-foam inserted between the bumper and the frame? It's even stamped with the Toyota logo. How long will it take for the styro-foam to degrade, break then fall out?
