    My first and very possibly my only mod contribution. Lol. This may be common knowledge, but it's new to me.
    Was tired of losing my hitch cover at car washes. Thanks to my local Toyota parts guy for this.
    You have to pound it in with your fist, but it's very snug and secure. The parts guy even gave me the golf ball.
    Is there an award for easiest mod ever?

    I threaded a piece of black wire through the sides of the hitch cover and routed the wires out through the hitch pin holes then tied them off.
