    I have a 08 v6 4Runner without a towing kit. I would like to install one. Any recommendations? I like the look of the stock v6 receiver because it does not stick out as far as an aftermarket weight distributing hitch - but i do not know if this will work with my existing bumper. My truck already is all wired up for trailer lights, just need a receiver to take my small trailer.

    On another thread, an user named Relentless has extra ones for sale. My local pinknpull junk yard has one too that I can pull off if you're desperate!:rolleyes:

    I bought a stock V6 hitch receiver from a junk yard for $100. I cleaned it up and had a body shop install it and notch out the bumper. Thanks for your input.
