Tow Hitch

I've got a 2009 Taco, came with a rear view camera already wired which
I installed. I now want a tow hitch, went to Toyota Dealer who wanted
a little over $500 to install and about $450 for all the parts. Is there a
place where I can buy one some what cheaper. I think I can install it
myself. Also where is the wiring hookup under the bed, someone called it a pick.

Thanks for all who read and advise.

Ron

You can find them all over the place. Autoanything.com, JC Whitney, Uhaul. Just make sure you get a reputable brand (Uhaul, Reese, Hidden Hitch). Install is very easy if you're good with basic hand tools (can't remember if it requires a torque wrench or not). The wiring can be a little more involved depending on what you're looking for. You can purchase a harness that plugs into your tail lights and gives you a 4 pin connection for a trailer (brakes, running lights and directionals, no brakes or power). If you want a 7 pin connection, you'll need to wire a brake controler and a power wire.

U-Haul is everywhere and they are not too expensive. Easy to install. Just a straight bolt on I'm pretty sure.
