I heard all we need is an extension . Something with a c shape to flow under the bumber and then back upwards to provide a high enough level. I want to buy a Street bike but I first want a trailer hitch also. I'll see what I can do . I also Have the TRD kit. wave

I don't think a celica is the proper type of car to "haul" stuff so why would you want to do that?

You need a winter rig, or a pulling rig in this case.

i considered posting a question like this just to see if anyone actually put one one...

A truck would be better or something actually designed for hauling as i could only wonder about the stress on the engine?? confused

wait wait wait... just get a reciver and an extension rise up ball... if you have ever seen tall trucks... they use these all the time, except instead of going up, they come down... they look like this...

and they arent expensive... however if you have coil overs you may want to rise up the rear shocks to increase the holding look, so your not saggin... or increase the air in your air bags...

you will also want to practice without a boat at the boat launch, making sure you can get out of the water after your wheels have been soaked(or wet) with and without weight... cause i have seen many frontwheel drive small cars towing jet skis get stuck at the boat launch... that had to great of a slope... droping the jet ski in the water is no prob, but taking it out is... you have not only the weight of your car, but the skis and the wet weight of both the ski and the trailer... plus now all four of your wheels are wet (if someone else has used the launch ramp, if its a busy place) and the launch ramp may have alge and oil on it reducing your ability to pull out

instead of tractor pulls, they should have "rip apart your import" night at local drag strips... ha that would be hilarious... like the vw commershal getting you to buy the torage... where they show the bug towing the trailer and just dangling, while the touregg can hold the weight and drive fine
