    That's not bad for a tow hitch. I've been looking for one on Craigslist for months and even used ones go upwards of $125. For something as important as a hitch you don't want to cheap out on it.

    Any of the Major Brands they all seem to be in the $125.00 to $175.00 price range .

    Curt , Reese , Draw-Tite Buyers I have used them all over the years

    Watch those Universal Fit ones they can be a pain.

    What brand Hitches are sold by the autoparts you deal with these are heavy shipping can get expensive fast .

    Just FYI I recently picked up a used but great condition, factory style hitch with an unused wiring kit (plug & play, for Tacoma) for $125. Can't remember what brand it was, but the person I bought it from had it installed at the Toyota dealer. Will look for the part number and report back.

    I have a curt and it works fine. Every big name hitch company will all perform the same. Nothing special about any over the other
