The hitch is very nice and would have been a snap to install on a new truck. The old hitch was a universal item , I needed a torch, once all the old hitch was removed the etrailer went on pretty easy.. One thing the powder coating was pretty thick inside the threaded nipple that mounts off the bumper hole, it needed a tap to clean out all the cured powder coating. It looks wonderful under the truck and gave it about another 31/2 inches of ground clearance. I am very happy with the Curt Hitch from 107214

Omg! Etrailer order/shipping all ok. However, product from Curt the worst experience ever with a hitch! All order info points to me having the correct part number but all 4 side bolts holes (even oblong) did not line up. And then it gets worst! The one large bolt that goes down through the factory hole in bumper was the incorrect bolt. Meaning it had the wrong threads to match the hitch! And it was a pan head bolt when the surface is flat! Wtf? Disaster! And I have installed many hitches in my lifetime! 180030

I could not believe how well made and how well the hitch fit my truck. this whole install took only twenty minutes to complete. The wire harness was so easy to hook up. The whole task was so much easier than any other hitch install I have ever attemped. Sinc. Harry H. 43046

Hitch went on just as the video instructions highlighted. Also, the wiring harness went in without a "hitch". All done within one hour. Wish all product installations went as smooth. 41030

  • How to Determine Towing Capacity for a Hitch on a 2005 Dodge Dakota 2WD Quad Cab
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch, item # 13229, is designed and tested for fit and capacity, likewise the Dodge Dakota and Mitsubishi Raider have their own towing capacity ratings for the vehicle and bumper. In your case the vehicle attachment point is rated for 2,000 pounds capacity so that will be the maximum rating for your vehicle with the bumper mounted option. You always have to go by the lowest rated item in the towing system for maximum capacity. If you need more capacity than the bumper...

  • Availability of Class IV Hitch for 2008 Dodge Dakota
  • Most Class III hitches will have a Weight Carrying Capacity and a Weight Distribution Capacity. There is not a Class IV hitch available for the 2008 Dakota, but the Curt Class III receiver, part # 13230 has an 8000 lb capacity when used with a weight distribution system. The W/D system will use leverage provided by spring bars to transfer a portion of the trailer tongue weight to the front axle of the tow vehicle, thus allowing the hitch to bear more weight. Although the hitch is rated...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class III Hitch # 13230 with 2010 Dodge Dakota with Full Sized Spare Tire
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about the compatibility of that hitch with a Dodge Dakota full-sized spare tire. It turns out he has a 2011 Dakota. They used his truck to do some of the test fits and found that the Curt # 13230 fit just fine with the full-sized spare. He said that when raising or lowering the spare, you might need to push the tire toward the front of the vehicle just a little bit so it clears the hitch, but other than that, you will have no worries. You can see the installation...
