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

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

  • 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.
