I have installed the tow hitch on my 2006. But I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get the stock bracket that the wire harness plug slides into and attaches to the hitch. It did not come with the hitch. Thanks.

Don't use it.
It'll get bend & eventually busted.
I believe the Nevada Hitch is welded on.Maybe wrong.
I used velcro on mine & secured it under the step.
Made a heatshrink cap for it when not using
Works great
This is mine.

I did quite a bit of looking into this after I installed my receiver hitch. I ended up using a hole saw and putting a hole in the bumper to mount it on. I know quite a few on the forum have done that.

I tried to find things I could mount or fabricate to mount on the hitch itself and didn't come up with anything that I was satisfied with. On the bumper it is out of the way and secure. I mounted mine right above the little light that illuminates your license plate.

I'll second using a hole saw and mounting it to the bumper. Not only does it look good, it keeps it out of the way.

:clown: If you put it in the BUMPER, nothing, short of a rearend collision, will ever touch it--

--Here's mine and I think there's a hot-to in that section--
