    I intend to install a hitch with a 2 inch receiver to my 2004 Prius to connect a cargo basket (because we are moving). I am very unsure about the information I get from on-line hitch selling sites, such as Walmart and Canadian tire.

    Could someone who is more knowledgeable about cars list a few hitches that are compatible? Based on my research, I will only be able to get a Reese type hitch here.

    Thanks so much.

    I am running a Curt 11468 1.25" trailer hitch on my 2006/Gen2. I reused my Harbor Freight ("HF") 2.0" rack (that I previously used on my Acura). In order to couple the 2.0" rack to my 1.25" hitch I used HF adapter 65023. My rack is pretty beat up as I have used it for more than five years and recently someone ran into it. The rack is soon to be replaced with a new HF rack part no.: 69858.

    Additionally, if you are interested in wiring up your Gen2 for trailer lights then see the following thread:

    I will try to add some pics of the rack on my car.

    Some pics of my hitch, adapter and rack. Currently being used to haul a bag of garbage.

    Uh, I just realized you mentioned 2" receiver, sorry about the bad referral.
