I have bought and installed 13 trailer hitches for myself and 3 for friends. Most of them were rear hitches but at least 3 were front hitches. I think they all came from E-trailer. Every one was a snap to install except this one which was a nightmare. I have a car lift in my high ceiling garage so getting under the vehicle is not a problem. The distance between the mounts were too close so the washers supplied would not fit between the sholder and the holes and the bolts supplied were not long enough. After much frustration I ground the washers flat on one side and used bolts 1/2 " longer and was able to mount the hitch. 16735

The hitch seems to be a good one, but I did have a little trouble with installation. I had to grind a couple of the holes out to be able to bolt it in.105629

Good finish and appearance. Sturdy. Didn't fit though. Had to use a Hi-lift jack to spread mounts to get it to fit.103342

  • Are there Front and Rear Mounted Trailer Hitches for a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4
  • Rear mounted hitches are not available for the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder because it is supposed to have come with one from the factory. The best place to look for a replacement rear mount hitch for your vehicle would be through a dealership. But for a front mount I can help you with that, no problem. We have the Curt front mount hitch # 31241 that you have referenced that will fit your Pathfinder. This hitch is rated for 350 pounds vertical load. So anything you load on in the front hitch, su
