I'm new to this forum and to trucks in general. I just got my 2008 Tundra SR5 4.7L 4x4 Double Cab a few weeks ago. This is my first truck so I'm just learning about towing capacities, etc. It came with the towing package.
From what I can tell on toyota.com for this exact vehicle the max towing capacity is 7800 pounds. I'm trying to understand what ball mount (hitch) and ball size I would need. Not sure if I'm even using the right terminology.
I don't have anything specific to tow right now. I probably won't tow much at all. If I do, it'll be fairly small equipment to use around the yard, like a stump grinder.
However, if I'm going to get a hitch, I might as well get something that will tow close to the maximum allowed by the truck. I would think anyway. So, what do I need to buy?
Thanks for the help, sorry if this is a stupid question.
