Reese Towing Hitch sorry for the dumb ?

When I bought my 2011 Tacoma they said for the ball and hitch (?) was 300$ from Reese. I found this at Homedepot and bought it for 22$. Is this sufficient?

$300 is closer to the price of a whole receiver (i.e. if you got a base model Taco without the tow package and wanted to add a hitch receiver). It's possible the saleman is looking at the wrong item in the computer.

Do you have a trailer hitch installed on your truck? $300 as mentioned sounds like the complete set up, a trailer hitch w/ ball mount. The ball mount set up with a 2" ball you purchased will work for many applications, but you need the trailer hitch or reciever installed on the truck.

Yeah I have the tow-package on my truck already and that's what I kept telling the guys at Toyota, but they kept saying $300. All I know is I got what I needed and I just wanted to make sure the '11 Taco could handle 6k lbs.
