Prepairng to setup my trailblazer as toad. Have a Roadmaster 8000 towbar. Need base plates/brackets to fit the trailblazer. Just priced new ones... are their any used out there?Looking for any advice/council/warnings re installation and the best approach to the taillight wiring. Have rigged 4 toads in past 15 year (Datsun,2 Jeeps, Chev p/u). This one looks to be way more complicated... any one have anything to offer?

Hitchtrader.com has a lot of brackets for sale. I bet you will find what you are looking for. Otherwise, try Craigs list or ebay. I bought mine on ebay and did very well. i used a local body shop to do my install and am very happy with the results.
