    I butchered the bracket used for the rear RH roof rack mount.

    I had to drill out the bolt, that bracket is supposed to be flat! I spun it to where it broke loose and twisted itself up and I stripped the bolt head. What I learned from my F-up... the bolts are locktite’d at the factory and some significant torque is required to get past the seal. So, do not remove one bolt before freeing up the other.
    I am going to use washers and nuts to replace this ruined bracket. I hope to have the Prinsu put on tomorrow afternoon and share the finished result!

    I was furious with myself. I knew better. Going with the nut and bolt replacement wasn’t bad but I used a generous glob of silicone and a rubber washer on the inside to assure no water entry. I’m surprised they don’t recommend the silicone in the directions, they did when I put my Prinsu on my taco. I have the Prinsu 90% installed and feel completely confident with it. The remaining 10% is the non-drill front bracket install.

    DO NOT order this if you have a model year 2017 on up:
    https://www.carid.com/2018-toyota-4...021836.html?parentsubmodel[]=SUBMODEL|TRD+Pro
    When it showed up after 5 days $11+ in shipping it's for a 2014-2016 year!! Wrong connector!! :-( The page has 2018 circle checked off BUT I did not read the description that states for 2014-2016. I entered ALL pertinent vehicle details & saw 2018 checked so I didn't THINK I had to read their details! just submitted an exchange email will see how they handle it.

    That’s my next project. I’m worried about the skill level and time needed.

    If they decide to not give you a refund you could just make your own plug. Is there enough play on both ends to snip and tie into a new harness?

    I didn't pull hard on harness, yeah I could put that would suck. I'm a professional Aircraft technician, not general aviation either.. Made plenty of harnesses up for test or adding equipment. just PO'd ordered paid S&H & was excited to do quick R&R only to be disappointed in their mess up! Their site claims it's for a 2018 BUT it clearly is NOT!

    I would set a day aside, but will only need two hours. No real skill needed. Just take it slow when unwrapping the harness.

    The no-drill full length Prinsu finished! SUPER easy install other than having to make up for my screw up written up in post #4780. I have the grommets on the way for ones I lost for the dual load bars. I have my Prinsu cargo basket but it’s still painted quicksand from when it was on my taco. What I have on hand to load it down with: ARB 2500 awning and room, roadshower 4, rotopax fuel and water, black TRED 800 traction boards, and Plano rifle case.

    It has been a busy week! I installed king suspension with SCS stealth 6 wheels and BFG 285/70R17 as well as a prinsu rack. So excited to get this thing out in the mountains!
