Alright today on this 2011 Dodge Charger, were going to install part number 13093 from Curt. Alright this is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the car and next well give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories.Have the receiver opening down to the ground and this car is going to be 9 inches and from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be 8 inches. First were going to show you how its installed. First thing we need to do is actually lower part of the exhaust and remove part of the exhaust to make it easier to install the hitch. So were going to put down this clamp right here, put some lubricant, were going to pry the clamp open just a little but, just so theres enough to make it loose. Ok, then well leave everything alone for now.
Ok we go ahead and lower the exhaust on the drivers side. Now theres 2 hangers and theyre actually bolted up to the bottom of the frame, so well just remove them that way. At this point we can go ahead and remove this section of the exhaust.Now were done for the drivers side, lets go to the passenger side and remove the hangers as well. Now we have moved a little further to the back of the exhaust, lets pry down these two hangers here and here with some lubricant, then we can make the exhaust lower even more. Right, now we got our exhaust loose as you can see here, now what were going to do is actually use a strap to pull over to the side to make it easier to see the bottom of the frame.
Were looking at the drivers side frame rail, well go ahead and show you where the attachment points are for the hitch. Were going to use these 2 threaded holes here and here and this hole as well. So this is your access hole for hardware that well install for this hole. Now before we get started, you probably want to take a moment to check and make sure that the bolt will thread into the weld nut in the frame. The older the vehicle is, its going to be dirtier, so you may want to use some lubricant and a tube brush to clean it out.
The tube brush is part number 814092. Going to install the hardware here, well take our bolt leader that comes with the kit, were going to use an out or access hole. Get our block, our spacer and put it into place and then thread on the bolt, theres the end of out leader, push it in the frame, pull it back out. And you can leave the bolt leader on or off, it doesnt matter at this point. You can leave it to help you losing the bolt in the frame.
Now were looking at the passenger side frame, just a little bit different, we have 2 open holes to install hardware and just one weld nut. Alright at this point we can go ahead and start installing the hitch. We take the passenger side of the hitch and put it on top of the exhaust muffler to hold that side up and then we go ahead and lift up the drivers side. Then well start flanging it. Move over to the passenger side and repeat the same process. With the hitch still lose, well go ahead and install the bolts into the weld nuts. Were done with the drivers side, well go ahead and do the same thing on the passenger side. Once we have all our hardware installed, well go ahead and snug everything down. And then torque it down as specified in instructions. Drivers side done, now lets go ahead and do it on the passenger side. Now our hitch is installed, now lets go ahead and reinstall the exhaust fitting and repeat the same step in reverse. Ok and with that were finished part number 10393 from Curt.

I bought the hitch and wiring kit for a 2014 Chrysler 300, I must say the install video made it look like an easy job and in fact it was. The install took me about 2 hrs. from the time I put the car on the lift till it was back on its wheels and that includes installing the wiring harness. The fit and finish was superb, everything mated up perfectly, no need to tweak or pry on anything to get it to fit. All welds were smooth and straight. Nice to have and install such a high grade, heavy duty product. I also bought the C56145 custom wiring kit, it is a must have item for Chryslers due to their load specific wiring. The dealer wanted $600 for the hitch and wiring kit + $ to install. I saved a lot by doing it myself. A big thanks to "etrailer.com" for handling such fine products and the free shipping too. Respectfully, Larry R. 194787

Thank you for the follow up on my purchase. Your customer care is outstanding! I would like to comment on the hitch for my 2014 Dodge Charger. It's well built and a huge plus, it's made in the USA. Something that should be noted is that the 2014 Chargers muffler system is a bit different than what is depicted in your installation video. The passengers side muffler can not be disconnected and removed. It can be released from the hangers to give room for the installation but not removed because it is welded to the drivers side exhaust about half way to the engine. This provides little room to work around muffler making it very difficult to tighten the bolts on the passengers side. However, I was able to complete the installation and the product looks, and works great. The 2014 Charger trailer wiring harness couldn't be easier. It really is a plug and play. Thanks for the great products and service. Dan 127370

I am 68 years old and get around in a wheel chair...after jacking up my newly acquired 2013 Chrysler 300C SRT8, I single handily removed the stock exhaust system as I was replacing it with an aftermarket performance setup...now was the opportune time to install the trailer hitch receiver with nothing in the way...the instruction were spot on...everything was included...3 bolts and washers threaded right in...3 plates and bolts fished in, and then were tightened down with nut/washer assemblies...total job lying on a creeper using impact tools was 35 minutes by myself...now I am just waiting for the small trailer to arrive that will carry my 3-wheel scooter with a tongue weight of 18 lbs. instead of using a Harmar lift attached to the rear of my car and forcing the rear to sag big time...I am over joyed!!! 238252

Easy to install and excellent fit and finish to my Chrysler 300. I use it for airport runs and being able to tow a small luggage trailer is important, especially when clients wish to bring their golf clubs. 185492

The fit and finish was excellent... My only problems were in the installation on a 5 year old vehicle (2011 300 C)... The weld nuts were corroded, and on the passenger side, the limited access with the tail pipe in the way made it a chore to clean the threads enough to get the bolt to tighten properly... Also, there was no mention of the chrome exhaust tips that are cumbersome to remove and install with the tailpipes in place... Since you can get to the driver's side easier after removing that tailpipe, it would have been nice to know that it can be left in place until the tailpipe is removed. The passenger side is another story, it must com off to allow the pipe to come down enough to get the hitch slid in place... Other than those two things, the instructions were really good... 249268
Excellent product. Well designed. Solid. Installation itself is somewhat difficult. Had it not been for Curt's excellent video I would still be under the car!! 148534

Product is absolutely excellent, purchasing and delivery, five star! Materials, instructions and products to do the installation, absolutely the best. They even include fishing wires for the bolts and washers. I would recommend etrailer.com to everyone I know and don't know; they are absolutely "the whole package"; don't accept anything less! Sorry, I don't have any pictures of the installed product, but everybody says it looks great on our 2014 Chrysler 300. 154420

First time buying a hitch, looked everywhere and asked so many places and this was the only one with great price and fast shipping. The instructions were pretty detailed and I thought I could do it myself but still handed to the professionals. Turned out it was bit tougher than I thought! But they finished in an hour and it was great to go! Also bought the wiring and ball mount here. 267466
This hitch is perfect. My wife was worried she would see it, and spoil the lines of her 300-C. The hitch is virtually invisible, you only see the reciever and it is black surrounded by a nice plastic boot. So her black 300-C is intact. The worst part of the install was the chrome pipe tips upper screw. I actually left it off when I was re-attaching everything. 133133

Great product and instructions. Ordered and received the next day!!! I installed it in my driveway in 30 minuets. The video that is on YouTube by etrailer is spot on. 132073
Should be an inch or so tighter up to the rear bumper cover. Hitch gets very close to the road and drags very easy. If it fit tighter it would drag less.Box you shjipped in was TERRIBLE! When I got it, the hitch had blown holes in three places. Good thing the fastners and instructions were taped to the hitch 139654

Arrived very quickly to like 30 min to install looks great highly recomend . 125851
Installation was a little more time consuming on this one than my other LX (Dodge Magnum) due to the exhaust getting hung up on the tips that are part of the rear fascia. Otherwise, very simple install with easy to follow instructions. 165620

Very east install after reading instructions and two of us installed in less than 30 minutes and looks good under rear bumper without sticking out like a sore thumb. 208554
Fits very nice on the Charger. It does set very low which we knew would happen but will work great for our bike rack for our Bike Patrol Officers. 43723
The hitch fit great and was easy to install with simple hand tools. The muffler system on the car was the hardest part to get out of the way. 189826
