Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit Installation - 2021 Toyota Tacoma

Hello, neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look and installing the Roadmaster Baseplate on a 2021 Toyota Tacoma. And this is what your baseplate is gonna look like when it's installed on your truck. And overall, it's a pretty clean look. It's exposed so you can see the entire thing across, but it sits underneath the front bumper well enough to where it has a pretty clean look overall. Now it does have a mounting point for your breakaway switch, as well as your six-pole, which is a nice added convenience. You won't have to worry about fabricating anything up there. more

So you really don't modify the front of the vehicle a whole lot compared to what it looked like before. more
