    I have a 2010 Tundra, whose 7-Way Connector mounting bracket is hanging by one bolt.
    All the mounting brackets I have found have a ninety degree bend, where the mounting screws go.
    My plate mounts flush, and I can't really see a way to adapt the other style.
    Anyone know where I could get a flush mount bracket?
    Thanks!

    Well, after skinning some knuckles, and breaking a bolt, I figured a way to mount a new bracket - hopefully.

    Thanks for the link! I cleaned everything up and painted it two years ago. Doesn't take long in New England to rust over.

    Ah, the old rust belt disease. Have you had the underbody treatment done to your vehicle? I know it doesn't cover the tow hitch stuff, but it's a recall item that the dealership can do for free and covers the frame. It popped when I brought my truck in. Took a couple days for them to do it - i think they separate the body from the frame to spray it all down. Dunno if your 2010 had the same batch of steel that caused the recall on the 2007's.

    I think the recall only went up to 2008.
