    but it seems like they would come together, idk why they would sell you half of a kit that you cant use yet untill you go out and buy the pin

    Most people with tow hitches already have a pin. Many have ones that lock so it would be redundant to include a non-locking one in this kit.

    As far as I've seen, no tow hitches come with pins. They're always sold separately. Check Home Depot, U-Haul, or any truck shop.

    Side note, etrailer.com is a great company to do business with. I highly recommend them.

    Probably because if you've already got the hitch for the reciever then you already have the pin to go with it. Why carry two pins around?

    Checked with the local Toyota parts department. The hitch they sell comes with the pin.

    i do because alot of ppl dont carry 1 around and a 2in wide strap fits into the trailer hitch on the pin. its also locked in instead of sitting on the ball. which is fairly easy so slip off when wet. thats also the reason for the shackle. but can also be use to connect 2 straps together.
