    Looking into getting a weight safe adjustable hitch with the built in scale. Reason being is that so I don’t overload my Tacoma with too much tongue weight when I’m towing

    Anyone have feed back on these hitches?

    JMHO - When dealing with a Taco, once you are in the range of seriously worrying about tongue weight, you are in the WDH realm and that hitch might not be of much use, as most WDH setups that I am aware of wont be able to benefit from that setup. For me, I have CAT scales nearby that I use to evaluate my travel trailer loadout, but for in town heavy/utility trailer scenarios, I have not worried too much about the tongue weight (crucify me), as if I can tow it across town at 40mph, i will gladly overload the truck (but not necessarily the trailer).

    Just my dumb@ss input.

    Here is an inexpensive scale to keep an eye on tongue weight. I purchased one and it seemed to work well.
