    I was just curious to see which hitches or adjustable ball mounts that everyone is using on their lifted Tundras to pull your toy haulers/trailers?

    Definitely subscribing to this. I still have the tri ball on mine, and will likely need a drop ball if I ever want to haul anything.

    I have this installed, but it's solely to protect the back of the truck. I don't plan on towing anything. A friend's truck was hit in a parking lot and the hitch saved the back of his truck. When I bought the Tundra, he had this in storage (genuine Toyota part) and gave it to me. The rubber cover is to save my (and especially my wife's) shins.

    I never thought about the difference in wheels. I know I’m roughly 3.5” taller than stock, so I figure an adjustable drop up to 4” will work. But I’ve been wrong before.

    I had a Bulletproof hitch for my 2014 Ram 3500. Actually my truck is one of their model trucks. I believe mine was the 12” down and 12” up extreme duty rated for 30,000#. That’s the highest rated hitch that’s not a 5th wheel. They have various other lighter hitches that will meet your needs.
