    I need to get a tow hitch kit ( ball and neck) for my taco which already has the towing package. I found that Costco has a nice 2" kit for $55 that comes with some nice parts: (at the bottom). Does anyone know if there is a better deal on a similar kit. I checked out the rapid hitch set but cant find a better price than $200 and even that is a lot to spend. Let me know what you think?

    I have some basic ball mounts and then the Rapid hitch. I'll take the rapid hitch hands down even for the money. it allows me to tow anything i want and get the hitch at just the right height with my lift. If you ever lift your truck this will be a life saver when you go to hook up a trailer. i typically haul one of 3 or 4 different trailers that have different hitch heights/ ball sizes so this is why the rapid hitch is so indispensable to me. If the height is right with a standard fixed mount hitch and you only need to tow one trailer then a regular mount should be fine for you though.
    I just did a quick search and found one for $149- http://www.adventurerv.net/rapid-hitch-aluminum-adjustable-3410-drop-p-3225.html

    That is a great price! I have that lock on my hitch bar. I think I paid $15 or $20 for the lock. Great lock!
