    Ugh, not me. Run your shin into a hitch and it hurts for what, 2 minutes? Run it into a greasy one and you still get the standard 2 minutes of agony, plus the added bonus of dealing with a greasy pant leg. Getting lithium-based hitch grease out of blue jeans is a major pain in the butt.

    In a way that’s true, but at the same time a Tacoma isn’t some heavy duty diesel work truck. They’re perfect for getting grocery’s, dropping kids off at school, and buying the occasional plywood, 2x4’s, and bags of sand. It’s the perfect medium for people who don’t need a heavy duty work truck but still want a truck

    That being said, I’d never take my truck downtown. Lol people can’t drive or park around here. ‘95 Subaru ftw!!

    Don't be mad that he's stealing your swagger dude. Being seattle dude probably gets out on the weekends. I work in downtown chicago in a high rise, my truck is in the burbs at my house. Rub some baby oil on those nips and chill out

    Is having an object in your receiver hitch while not towing is illegal in your area?

    This is a perfect example of why the smart phone and the internet are destroying society.

    In the past you would see things like this and mutter something under your breath and forget about it before you had went 3 feet. Now people see this and think I need to tell everyone in the world. They take a picture and keep thinking about it until they can post on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or their favourite forum.

    Go ahead and remove his hook to put it in the back and get arrested for theft as a cop or security guard walks by. That was a great idea. Wrap that thing in bubble wrap and get arrested for vandalism or the owner finds you screwing with his truck and he dummy’s you before you even see him coming.

    This isn’t even a first world problems situation. It’s his truck not yours. Worry about your own stuff and not every random person that you encounter. If it is illegal then play good samaritan and call the cops on him and feel empowered because you saved the world from the vicious tongue hook.
