    A hitch is an essential part of any family vacation. But which Toyota Highlander hitch is the right one for you? That's a good question! Because there are actually two different Highlander hitches designed for two different sets of Highlander models. Unsure which one is right? Send us an email with your VIN number and in two seconds we can let you know for sure which one you need! Want to take a guess on your own? You sure are brave! Here are some guidelines that'll hopefully help in your decision...

    WHICH HIGHLANDER MODELS DOES THIS HITCH (PT228-48172) FIT?

    2014-2016 Highlander & Highlander Hybrid (ALL MODELS)
    2017-2019 Highlander & Highlander Hybrid (LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE Models ONLY)

    I HAVE A 2017-2019 HIGHLANDER LIMITED—WILL THIS FIT?

    NO! This hitch DOES NOT fit the 2017-2019 Highlander Limited models. What you would want is this one: PT228-48170

    DO I NEED ANYTHING ELSE?

    Yes! Unless you want to get pulled over for not having functional lights on your trailer, you will need to order the Wiring Harness, which is part number PT725-48140.

    Other parts which are not included, but you may need, are a Ball Mount (2 i.n - PT228-48141), Trailer Ball (1 7/8 in. - PT791-00842; 2 in. - PT791-00844)

    HOW DO I INSTALL THIS HITCH?

    Have a look! Here are the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Genuine, OEM Toyota hitches are made to fit perfectly with your Highlander and are manufactured to Toyota's exact specifications, giving you peace of mind while you're on the road. Here are a few of the highlights for this tow hitch:

    • Replaces PT228-48140
    • Engineered to help accommodate the Highlander's maximum tow rating
    • Optimized placement help provide precise drop/rise to maintain vehicle departure angle
    • Frame-mounted tow hitch receiver is located at the highest position possible to help achieve maximum ground clearance and departure angles and easy access to the spare tire
    • Includes receiver cover with Toyota logo
    • Before towing, confirm that your vehicle and trailer are compatible, properly hooked up and loaded, and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Rating and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on the total weight of your cargo, occupants and available equipment.

    So what are you waiting for? Order your hitch today and get vacationing tomorrow (although not literally tomorrow)! Please Note: This item will require a signature upon delivery
