    I need one for my rod holder and to help me maneuver my BBQ trailer, any recommendations. I see some online that are just bolt on that seem easy enough.

    OK :) on my FJ, before I put the thermometers in, on my way back from Alabama, you can see my FJ had a receiver hitch on that bumper, but I don't want a new bumper yet for the Tundra

    Ahh, knows a smoker :)

    That's a Shirley Fabrication, he does all custome orders out of Tuscallosa, Alabama. They make a few truck bumpers but their main business is smokers

    Thanks, I could live with that, only get to the banks a few weeks a year now and move the smoker around a few times a year for BBQ comps. I see in you avatar you have it on, any better photos, just bolts on right?

    The one I had on my fj was made so it bolted on and off so I didn't lose my approach angle so I am used to removing one :)

    what is the vertical pin? Is that an adjustment on your rod holder?

    Look at the edit in my first post. It's an anti-rattle device. The cooler holder was pretty wobbly without it.

    OH, sorry I missed that, mine has something built in but still wobbles like crazy on the beach

    Might still be able to add that to mine for a little extra control

    This one is pretty tight, even on the beach. A friend into bicycles turned me on to it. It adds about three minutes to installation/removal, so not too bad.

    I sent Curt an email asking about the fit on a 2017, this is their reply

    You would need hitch number #31198. You will have to take your tow hooks off then put the hitch up first then the tow hooks back on under it

    Same model number for the 2013. Hooks the same also. With a floor jack to hold the hitch up it's a one man job to install.

    Thinking I may take the tow hooks off and leave them off, if I needed a pull I could add my shackle to the receiver hitch anyway
