After reading Normans disastrous experinece with a newly installed U-haul
hitch I thought I would share my experience.
I bought a new Tacoma last week and needed a hitch installed. I drove 60 miles to be on time for my 9 am appointment and asked prior to the installation if it was a FRAME MOUNTED HITCH and was told it was. When I made my appointment on the phone I asked twice if it was a frame mounted hitch and was assured that it was.
At 11:20 am the installer came in and said my hitch was installed and I paid for it.
When I went out to my truck and looked I found that the hitch they installed was a combination Class one that attached to the rear bumper and a Class 3 that was attached to the last 5 inches of the frame.
To make a long story short this is the only hitch they have for an 08 Tacoma and he refused to refund my money. I paid cash for the installation.
If you have a 2005 Tacoma or newer and want a true frame mounted class 2 or 3 hitch beware.
