    Just got my new tow hitch cover (stainless steel) from Kempter Kustoms! I swear it added about 20 horsies on the dyno. I think my taco can do the Kessel Run in just 11 parsecs now (yep, nerd)... Who else has some cool covers/inserts?

    Any issues with the fit? How far does it stick out past the bumper? I watched a couple of their videos on YouTube and they mentioned some issues with 4Runner hitch receivers.

    Agency 6 Shackle Hitch Block. Functional and looks cool. Can’t wait to install. Quality looks great in person.

    Thats kind of a similar unit that i use for my roller boat dock when i want pull it out of the lake.
    As for some of the hitch plugs, in the winter they can ice up, and freeze in the receiver the way their made. My tundra did it all the time needing a bucket of hot water on it. This stainless one i have now has a type of weather seal that hasn't so far.

    It's pricier but it does eliminate another key to keep track of, I guess if someone also had a Toyota key they could take it...But if someone goes through that trouble, they can have it I suppose.

    Save up some rewards points. Got it nearly free.

    It somehow cuts the pins to your key on the first use. Any Toyota key will not unlock it.

    Ah ok, I do have a real key actually, it's a 22 Toyota key, doesn't look exactly like the ones in the photos, but I am sure it will work fine. Thanks!

    Nothing fancy but I like it - adds a bit of splash to the Super White
