    Trying to decide if I want a hidden hitch or a Draw Tite for my 2003 Tacoma SR5 Step Body. Any ideas?

    I think I have a draw tite... All of them stay pretty hidden on our trucks because most of the hitch is hidden by the bumper. The only thing you can see at all is the receiver.

    I put a hidden hitch on my double cab 4x4. The left side is a little close for comfort to the leaf pack, but it's never rubbed.

    The look is great, though. You can barely see it from behind. Yes it hangs below the bumper, but because it's recessed, you're less likely to hit it if wheelin'.

    Only reason I'd replace it is to get a low-pro (custom?) bumper with an integrated 2" receiver.
