draw tite

I have a draw tite hitch on my 2003 taco. It tucked up behind the bumper and then drops down to place the receiver directly under the bumper. I bought my truck used and discovered this after so i don't know the model number or anything, but it looks factory.

My Stealership kept on leaving me automated voice mails about class III hitches for 78 CDN (65 USD) on close out. That's a lot cheaper than Reese, et al, but shipping could be a bitch.

U-Haul sometimes has good out the door specials on hitch set-ups, under $100. Also try small independent shops around your area, sometimes they have stock they just want to get rid of. Dont have them install, thats what puts the price high and Tacoma hitches are easy to install.

yeah, U haul is the package I have on my truck too. The 5$ dollar guarantee is just the amount of money the guarantee costs when you purchase it.

Where are you located? I have one to sell. Its a U-haul round tube and the only thing that is visiable is the part the drops down for the reciever. The factory ones from Toyota are square tube and you can see the ends where is attaches to the frame.

You could go to a salvage yard, usually they overcharge for parts like that. The Toyota recevier hitch only uses 6 bolts to hold on (2 each side bottom of the frame, and 2 in the bottom of the bumper or farther back on the frame) you might have to remove the spare to get at it.

I would check out

They sell actual Toyota hitches for $263. With the wiring harness, hell of a deal if you ask me
As much as I like Chris, and try to be as much of a pimp as I can for him, that's not* a good deal (*for Toy stuff yes, but compared to other options, no).

A plug and play tail light harness, and bracket hitch is tons cheaper. The Toy harness is just waaaay too much cash.

What's the difference between a Class II and Class III hitch?? I just bought a 2004 DC with a factory trailer hitch (Code: DH Class II). It has a 2" receiver though. I thought Class II's only had the small receiver. Could some one help me out a little bit.

I don't have any experience with Toyota Hitches, but I do know that I had a Uhaul hitch and it was Crap! It rusted after about 3 years use. The toyota one might do the same, but I am willing to give it a shot for a few more dollars.
