    Check Uhaul's website for their Tacoma hitch. I just installed mine last week. Bought it for $119.00

    Hi all, Draw tite and Reese make excellent hitch's and draw bars. My Toyota, V6 ,6sp, 06 access cab came from Toyota already installed but I did not have the towing pkg goodies. My hitch is a 3000lb version, it says on the window sticker that its a Toyota factory hitch.
    You might check with your dealer and see if they would treat you right and give you a good price on a hitch, I mean after all, you spent a bundle on the new truck. Just thought I would pass that along.

    It's a Class 3, Square tube 2" receiver, with a Max weight of 5000. For $119.00 you can't beat it.

    It's perfect for my needs which consist of flat towing my 1500 lb. Mini Cooper.

    I think everytime you mention your Mini - you should include a picture of it. It is sweet! :D

    I'm waiting on a set of wheels I ordered for my Taco which should be in by this weekend. When I get them mounted I'll hitch up the Mini to the Taco and I'll take some pictures.

    Here's the part number for the Tacoma wiring harness kit for the tow hitch.
    It's part # 08921-04960 and retails for right under $100.00.


    Oh yeah, I attached pictures of my Taco & my Mini to the Fog Light thread by mistake.

    Got around to checking the lights in my new Toyota approved trailer wiring kit today and they don't work. The tail lights are the only lights that work. Turn signal or brake lights don't work. In caes anybody is wondering, yes I turned on the ignition while checking them and no they don't work. So I guess next weekend I get to do the job all over again and maybe find out what went wrong. Shiza.

    I just put a Curt hitch on my '07, I had one on my '04. I installed this one myself bought it of ebay for $89 plus $31 or so for wiring kit and $40 shipping for both. I had to remove rear bumper to install it. The whole process took about an hour.
