Towing Parts

I have a 2011 HiHy. I'm looking to do some small towing now that I sold my truck. My HiHY doesn't have any hitch on it at all so I was looking for part #s for what I need. I found a lot of the 2006 - 2010s but didn't find anything yet for the 2011 and up.

Amazon had this one
http://www.amazon.com/Genuine-2011-Toyota-Highlander-Receiver/dp/B00B4ZFGBS
Not sure though if that is correct. Anyone able to point me in the right direction for getting the parts I need to be able to two with this car?

Thanks,
Shane

Moved to 2nd gen area.

Check out oem part stores if you want the oem hitch (trdsparks, trdparts4u, etc...).
Or look at etrailer for substantially cheaper aftermarket hitches.

You will still need a wire harness/ converter.

Mine just bolted on. Simple 45 mins install from beginning to end.

I got this hidden hitch, wiring harnes kit, and drop hitch with 2" ball from these guys SHIPPED free for just UNDER $320 out the door, for all of the above.

Professional Pyro..
No really; I get paid to blow stuff up...

This is what I got...

CURT T Connectors
Vehicle2010 Toyota Highlander
Submodel Without OE towing package
AutoAnything SKU 3075093
Part Number 56034

So yep same part number, it took about 10 mins to install.
No big deal at all, not cutting or splicing.
All the connectors are already built in to the vehicle.
I was skeptical when they said that, but turned out it was true!

PS: I called to order and got an even better deal than the website
