A vertical tongue 00:46 weight of up to 500 lbs, and a trailer weight of up to 5,000 lbs. Now we'll go ahead and get a few measurements.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Toyota Tundra
  • For a front mount hitch for your 2004 Toyota Tundra, there are 2 options, see link. Both of them are going to require drilling, trimming, and/or removal of the skid plate for the hitches to fit properly.

Vertical line pull is like the tongue weight rating on a hitch that would be on the back of the vehicle. It is the amount of downward force the hitch can handle. Though the hitch can...
