There are a number of aftermarket kits specifically made for your vehicle.
I did a quick search on yours, and here's what I found

Not a bad deal for $55, and it's all plug and play.

We have a heavy duty tow bar so what is the towing capacity

How do I find my hitch system rating? Your hitch system is comprised of three components, the Hitch that is attached to the frame of your car, the Ball Mount (drawbar) and the Hitch Ball. Each component has a rating for capacity. The LOWEST rating of the three components determines the overall rating of your complete hitch system. For instance, you can have a 3500 lb hitch and ball mount, with a 2000 lb ball. Your hitch system is limited to the 2000 lbs towing capacity. https://www.uhaul.com/Articles/Tips/33/How-To-Determine-Your-Hitch-System-Rating

What weight can i tow with a 2004 camry


The weight the car will tow and the weight it can legally tow are two different things. You need to check on the law where you are. Whatever you tow observing the manufacturer's noseweight limits is important unless the rear suspension is modified.

Vehicle towing capacity chart


A Toyota Tundra can pull the space shuttle but stopping on a down grade is a different story. Towing capacities are base upon stability and pulling and stopping but should never exceed the cars weight. unless electric trailer brakes are used . but again if trailer would jack knife it will push your car into a tree without stopping because weight has overtaken control.

I have an 03 Toyota Sequoia, 4.7L V8, factory installed hitch receiver and wiring. The manual says it has a towing capacity of 6500 lbs GVWR. I have been towing a popup trailer weighing 3000 pounds with no...


I think the tongue weight rating on the stock hitch is 600 lbs, so you are over that. You probably want to level out truck to handle better when towing, so the best way is to get air bag helper that raises the back end.

Towing light problem on wiring them up.


It looks like there could be a service bulletin to fix this.

TO: ALL TOYOTA DEALER PRINCIPALS,
SERVICE MANAGERS, PARTS MANAGERS
SUBJECT: SPECIAL SERVICE CAMPAIGN 10H
(2000 TUNDRA AND 1999 - 2000 TACOMA TRAILER TOWING WIRE HARNESS
CONVERTER REPLACEMENT)
Toyota will initiate a Special Service Campaign to replace the Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
Converter (converter) on certain 2000 model year Tundra and 1999 - 2000 model year Tacoma
vehicles equipped with a genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Hitch or Bumper Hitch. This accessory
is included in the Towing Hitch Kit installed at ports (PIO) and by dealers (***); it is also sold by
dealers as an over-the-counter or service part.
An electrical short or open circuit can cause a fault in the genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
Converter (converter). This can cause a failure of the converter, and if a trailer is being towed at the time,
non-operation of the trailer lights. In limited cases, the converter housing could become heat-deformed.
In the case of the Tundra, the circuitry utilized in the converter was inadequate to properly manage
vehicle and/or trailer-side voltage spikes. If the converter is exposed to a voltage spike it may cause an
electrical short or open circuit within the converter.
As for the Tacoma, due to deficient waterproofing and improper installation location of the converter,
which is mounted in the lower portion of the taillight cavity of the vehicle, an electrical short circuit will
occur if water enters the converter housing.
The following vital information is provided to inform you and your staff of the campaign notification
schedule and your degree of involvement.
1. Owner Notification Letter Mailing Date
The owner notification will be conducted in two phases:
• The first phase will be launched in late August and involve vehicles equipped with port
installed (PIO) genuine Toyota Towing Hitch Kits.
• The remaining vehicle owners, whose vehicles may be equipped with a dealer installed (***)
genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness Converter, will be notified in the second phase
to be launched in early September.
We have attached copies of the owner notification letters for your reference.
If you are contacted by an owner of an involved vehicle, who has not yet received a notification,
please verify eligibility through TDN or TIS, inspect the vehicle to assure it is equipped with the
affected part, and perform repairs as outlined in the attached Technical Instructions.

I am installing a trailer hitch on my 2001 dodge Durango. I found the wiring for the flashers, but I can't find the wire for the brake lights.


They came with factory installed towing harnesses. No need to install aftermarket stuff. The harness is in the left(driver side} rear panel. All you need to do is plug it in.
