Default Bumper Mounted Hitch

On my 02 FX4 I only have a hitch on the bumper. It says max. tongue weight is 200 lbs.

What would be considered ok to use this hitch for.

Yea I would suggest cruising craigslist and finding a hitch. Can find them for pretty cheap on there.

Years ago when I had a lease on a Tacoma I bought a ball. Never used it. Maybe I just had a few extra bucks burning a hole in my pocket at the time or something. I was also a dumb kid at the time. The only thing it did was block the view of my license plate a bit.

200 is just the tongue weight. You can tow more total weight, but not much more.
