    I would like to add a towing hitch and was thinking that I like THIS one. NOthing major, maybe a smoker or a small trailer with random items.

    How hard is it to do this? Just bolt on? Any Cutting?
    Can I install myself? Should I find one used?
    AM I just stupid and cant do this?

    Check your salvage yards.. I bet you can find one in perfect condition if you find a wrecked taco. It would be really easy to put on if you have a compressor
