    I was on here first asking for help when a brand new Tundra rear-end my Taco. Since then I learned from you guys and did a couple of mods. One of them is installing the Rhino Hitch Step for another rear-end...and sure enough a slow speed intersection rear-end occurred. Maybe not so slow.

    Pictures coming soon.

    If you plan to buy one...use the RealTruck coupon below or something...save a couple of buck.
