Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Nissan Frontier - Curt

Today in our 2016 Nissan Frontier we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Curt Custom Fit Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver. Part number is 13241. Here's what the hitch is going to look like installed. You're going to see a receiver tube opening here. This is going to be just inside the back edge of the bumper, which is nice. You don't have to worry about bumping into it. Then we're going to have our cross tube.

It's about half visible as it comes across here, and then into the attachment points on each corner. We've got our two inch by two inch receiver tube opening here. This is great for cargo carriers, bike racks, ball mounts, whatever the case is that you're going to need. You've got the reinforced collar around the end. It's going to have kind of a flush look to it.

It's pretty clean. You've got a single pin hole here on the side that's five eights in diameter. Looks like there's going to be plenty of room for any of the class III accessories you might want to choose. And then our safety chain connection points here at the bottom. It's kind of a rolled steel style. Should be plenty of room to get whatever safety chain connected there that you might want to. Now, when it comes to tow ratings, we're going to have a five hundred pound tongue weight rating.

That's the maximum downward force we can put here at our receiver tube opening. We've got a five thousand pound gross trailer weight rating. That's the total weight of our trailer, and anything that we might load up on it. If we move to a weight distribution setup, our tongue weight, that's going to go up to eight hundred pounds. The gross trailer weight rating, that's going to go up to eight thousand pounds. We definitely want to check the owners manual on the Frontier to see what its tow rating is.

We'll use whichever of those numbers are the lowest. A couple measurements that are going to be helpful in selecting your ball mounts, bike racks, or hitch cargo carriers will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. We've got about seventeen and three quarters of an inch. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our bumper we're going to have about three and a half. To begin our installation we're going to clean out our attachment points to just make sure our weld-nuts don't have any debris built up. You'll see here is our rear shock perch, and we're going to have one, two, and three attachment points. Those are located on both sides on the same spot. Just a little bit of penetrating oil, or spray oil, or whatever you've got. Then we're using our . One of our tube brushes here. This is 814092. Does a real good job of getting those cleaned out. Just going to make sure once we get our hitch held up into position that our bolts will start without any issues. I have them in the exact same spot over here on the passenger side like we said. As we raise our hitch into position, we want to grab our hardware. It's going to consist of six bolts and six conical tooth washers. The thing we really want to remember is to make sure that those teeth of the washer face up toward our hitch. We want to get a bolt started on each side. You want to give it about four or five good turns in there. That will actually support our hitch while we get the rest of our hardware installed. We'll take just a quick look to make sure we have our hitch centered, and then we'll snug down our hardware. You want to look in your instructions. Find your torque specifications, and get your hardware torqued down appropriately. All right. At that point our hitch is ready for use. That will complete our installation of the Curt Custom Fit Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 13241, on our 2016 Nissan Frontier.

Very fast shipping, placed order on Tuesday and received on Thursday. Very pleased with all items ordered. This is a simple and easy install that should only take about forty five minutes to complete, which would have been the case but two of the bolts that attach the hitch to frame got cross threaded due to Nissan not alining holes with enough clearance to thread bolts properly into welded nuts on frame. I had to rethread those nuts with a tap, not etrailer or the hitches fault but Nissan's. Everything else in the install was easy and went fast. The hitch and all other parts look to be of solid quality. For all these parts and labor I was quoted a price of $365. at a locale hitch dealer, I only paid $228. from etrailer. Saving that much made it worth doing myself even with the nut problem. 122364

Received the package yesterday, installed today (after work) in no time flat. Nissan dealer wanted $350 for the hitch installed. Seriously, took my husband and me 15 minutes to install it. I don't know ANY mechanic worth $800/hr! Fantastic service, great product. . .what more do I need! 95274

2012 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X Simple installation, wiring harness very easy to install takes about 10 minutes. Hitch installation took about 20 minutes, easier with two people to get it lifted up under the truck. 6 bolts torqued properly then just run the wiring harness to your liking, that probably took the longest cause I am picky. Overall extremely easy install. etrailer.com was awesome, I received multiple notifications via email on the status of my order, and additional instruction email as well as delivery confirmation email. Package arrived safe and in a very timely manner. Could not be happier with this purchase. 53748

The hitch for my new/used Frontier installed in only 10 minutes! Even though I had not 'turned a wrench" in 10 years, with just a bit of help holding it in place, it fit perfectly. I'm not sure all trucks have the pre-drilled and threaded holes, but after watching the video, there seemed to be no reason to pay to have this installed. It lined up to perfection, looks great, and even had a great shiny black paint job. My new Frontier, fondly called Neela--Hindi for blue--looks pretty fine in the rear end! Now she is patiently waiting for her new tonneau! 207968

The bolt holes did not align with the weld nuts on my new 2015 Frontier. There may have been some damage in shipment. Etrailer immediately shipped a replacement. Installation was truly a 30 minute job. I'm 65 years old and know that you will only have problems with a company that you choose to do business with. What matters is how they solve those problems! Excellent customer service, easy to contact and easy to talk to. Great job Etrailer! 172605

2012 Nissan Frontier


Arrived as described on the website. I installed it myself in about 30 minutes on a 2012 Nissan frontier. Used a 6" extender for my wrench and a knuckle to get around the exhaust pipe. It's only 6 bolts total to install. The tricky part was hanging it up by myself. I used a couple of bar clamps to help me out with that part while I hand tightened the bolts. Overall great service from etrailer! Great customer service and fast shipping! 176521

The Curt hitch arrived in perfect condition. I didn't have an extra pair of hands so I zip-tied it to my floor jack and lifted it into place under my Nissan Frontier, installed the six bolts, torqued to specs, and viola! All done. I meant to take a picture of the hitch mounted on my floor jack before I installed it but forgot... sorry. I'm very pleased with my purchase and the free shipping on such a heavy item was a big bonus. 199901

Perfect fit. The installation video was outstanding. This was my first DIY hitch install. The installation videos made this super easy. I installed this on a 2006 Nissan Frontier in a matter of minutes. I bought a torque wrench and the socket extension as the video indicates due to the spare tire location prevents you from turning the torque wrench. All you need to is follow the instructions, it is that simple. 217407

This is the second trailer Curt hitch I have purchased from etrailer. This purchase is a direct result of the quality of the first hitch combined with the pleasure of doing business with etrailer. The Curt hitch is top quality, fits my Nissan Frontier perfectly and looks good. In the future, when I need a hitch or hitch accessories, I will look at etrailer first. 7525

I purchased a trailer hitch and harness for my 2014 Frontier. I cannot believe how quick it was delivered. Both then harness and hitch installed without a glitch. The price was the best of what I found on the net. In fact, I just discovered floor mats "custom fit" for 35 USD that I plan to order. 145265

Ordered the Curt hitch receiver for my 2012 Nissan Frontier on Thursday night. Monday morning UPS had it in my yard. No problems with the fit and finish. It would be a lot easier with two people, but with a couple pieces of 1/4" line it was not a problem. Satisfied with the hitch. 56458

The first thing I will say was the customer service at Etrailer.com was awesome. I called up with some questions they were answered and I was guided in the right direction and got the right product for my 2012 Nissan front tier crew cab pick up but more importantly there's no high-pressure sale or buying things I did not need. That to me just as a consumer says a lot that you can call a company get an American on the phone will give you good customer service and advice that's getting to be a rear concept nowadays. The hitch arrived as ordered and after some cleaning out and lubrication of the weld nuts on the frame it was easy to install I guess where the hitch on top of me and did kind of a benchpress motion to secure it with a couple bolts then was able to snug it up. The only complaint I had was installing around the muffler they just seems to be one bolt the does not want to get snugged up. It took some finessing and for all I know it's probably cross threaded in there but it's in there forever now not really any trailers fault or Curt hitches fault it seems to be a poor design by Nissan that unless you have some mongoloid long extension it's hard to snug up that bolt. The curt hitch seems very well-made and I like the fact that it is a America and keeps jobs in this country plus you can really tell the extra coating is on there which is nice here in Massachusetts with our salt filled winters. If I had a longer extension I think it would've been easier to install around the muffler but the total install time start to finish for me was only about 12 minutes and I did it myself. 153221


Comments

Maybe you had the same problem I had! Five of the bolts shipped were the correct size 12M-1.25 and one was the wrong size M12-1.50! Good thing I screwed the bolts by hand first and when the odd one would not screw in easily, I gave it one turn with a wrench. It was still not going in so I unscrewed it and took it to Lowes to find out if it was the right size. Tried it out on the nutbolt board they have on display and that is when I found out that it was not the correct size! I was lucky to find a metric bolt size 12M-1.25! The installation was smooth after I had the correct size bolt! The packing of the hitch could have been better!

Product received in good condition. Bolted right up with no problem. Most difficult part was managing the weight of the hitch and getting bolts started. Wiring relay connections was a breeze to install. Most difficult part of this proceedure was the removal of the factory installed protective cap under the rear of the truck so the 4 prong wire plug could be plugged in. Over all installtion of everything took about an hour, but i took my time to be sure I got everything right. 60527

Product has worked great and have had no problems with it. Very pleased with the hitch.

Got my hitch and harness today. The box was damaged at the receiver which is not entirely unexpected. Took everything to my friends shop since he had the space and tools. When we lined up the hitch, the slotted bolt holes did not line up. Whether it was due to the hitch being damaged in transit, manufactured out ot square or a factory frame issue is unknown. As I am a remodeling contractor, I know the value of a 2X4 and a bottle hydraulic jack. I was able to partially install the hitch and then spread it into place in order to install all six installation bolts. After that, we torqued them to proper foot lbs. These types of issues should be expected as there are too many variables when dealing with aftermarket products. I will say the shipping was fast and overall, the quality of the hitch appears decent for the price. Just be prepared for little issues when you install something like this. 175014

Hitch looks to be made from 5/16" thick plate and square tube. Welds are complete and craftsmanlike. Finish is complete, hard, and attractive. The bolts supplied are high quality hardened 12mm 8.8 rated, tensile strength about 115,000 psi. I think the truck frame is the weakest link in the system! I installed the hitch by myself in a leisurely 1/2 hour. The hitch is a true bolt-on product - the holes in the hitch lined up with those in the frame as well as need be. No struggling to get the bolts started. I used a c-clamp to hold one end of the hitch up to the frame while bolting the other end. Hitch arrived very quickly, faster than I anticipated. Etrailer kept me informed at every step of the ordering and shipment process. I couldn't be more pleased. 38314

This was the first time using etrailer. I found the web site easy to navigate and the instructional videos extremely helpful. When the hitch receiver arrived I discovered that one of the end support bars (that attach to the frame of the truck) was bent about an inch inwards. I was forewarned by several people that this might happen as a result of shipping and handling. I quickly fixed the problem by placing the damaged end in a fork of a tree and using the other end as leverage to straighten it out. The installation was straight forward. Make sure you review the on line instructional video and have a second set of hands prior to installation. The reciever fit like it came with the truck right out of the showroom. Very pleased. 224648

Hitch (Part 13241) and electrics (Part 118266) arrived on time, 40 minutes later everything was installed and connected. Had to ream out the washers to fit the bolts and drill new holes in the Mounting Box (Part 18157) to fit the 7-Way connector ... overall good value. 219505

by: Rich D04/04/2014


The hitch arrived in only a few days, I ordered it on a Sunday and it was delivered the following Tuesday or Wednesday. The box was damaged in shipping, not the fault of etrailer, but it was resealed and nothing was missing or damaged. As a matter of fact, I received a bonus piece - a roller from the carrier's conveyor system! A second set of hands is very helpful when installing the hitch, at least use a jack stand or something to support one end. It took less than 30 minutes to install and looks great. 123752

by: Kevin S08/01/2015


Hitch was delivered in 3 days. Was in perfect condition. Very easy to install (with two set of hands) I sprayed the weld nuts with lubricant and hand threaded the bolts. My mistake was I first tried it install by myself and I think I cross threaded the nut. (Totally my fault) if I had two people (as recommended) would have been a breeze. Ordering was easy as I did some research before I ordered. Very friendly and professional customer service. Would certainly do business with Etrailer in the future. 216067

Figured I'd test the estimated install time. 32 minutes and that included unpacking, locating the proper size socket, scrounging something to hold one end up while I attached the first, putting the socket away and taking the box to the recycle bin. Quite impressed. Thought there was a problem with the last screw but I found I had to tighten the end closest to the tailgate a bit more (or push it up) and it went right in. 184965

My trailer hitch receiver and wiring harness arrived quickly and without incident. I installed the hitch in approximately 15 minutes without any assistance. The only problem installing the wiring harness was getting the plug out of existing harness due to the age of the vehicle. I installed both the hitch and wiring harness in approximately 45 minutes. 183306

From the moment I ordered the hitch from etrailer.com, I received special care with emails confirming handling, shipping and receipt. The product was top shelf and fit beautifully. The whole job took less than a hour to install. The product was great and etrailer.com was great! I will order again... and recommend others to do the same! 30050

I haven't installed the hitch package yet but on opening the box, I am impressed with the sturdy quality of the hitch receiver and hardware included for the price. The hitch was shipped very quickly and all communication with the company has been excellent. I expect to get great service from this purchase and recommend etrailer highly. 262018

Item arrived packaged very well from etrailer. The finish looks thick, and durable, and the hitch came with quality hardware. The mounting holes lined up perfectly with the factory weld nuts, and the hitch sits neatly behind the bumper. Best of all---Made in the USA. Go with the Curt, the other big names are Made in Mexico. 212818

Just received the hitch, wiring harness, and combo pack ball mounts. I had it installed in less than 15 mins and the wire harness snapped into place in just a minute. I'm ready now to pick up my boat in the morning! I watched the install videos online which are assume and love this web site, they make it so easy. 18947

by: Scott09/17/2012


When it arrived the "arms" of the hitch receiver were not exactly square with the long boxy support (that runs along the bumper). It had apparently been dropped and the holes to the frame did not line up. I bent one of the arms a few degrees by wedging it in my trailer walls. After that, it fit perfectly. 54881

This product arrived just as advertised. Excellent quality product. About 20 min to install the hitch and about 10 min to install the electrical plug in system.

Product number 13241 installed very quickly - probably less than 20 minutes by myself. Holes on hitch lined up perfectly with holes on frame. I did retap holes on weld nuts first because truck had been driven four winters in an area where lots of road salt is used. 180138

Exactly what I ordered, small problem when I went to install it, one of the bolts wouldn't start , think UPS was a little rough, put a clamp on it till bolt was a few threads in. Some damage on box. Don't think it was anything etrailer did, Looks great! Thanks 82360

by: George P02/01/2016


86 Ft.#s seemed a little much. Powder coat blistered when torqued. Going to spray on 2 inches - round of undercoating on the bolt heads cause of the blistering. Otherwise, How simple ...6 bolts... done. 236701

Installed in under 30 minutes, you will need a torque wrench to properly install. (On the 2012 Frontier, the exhaust pipe blocked 1 of the 6 bolts from being torqued) I would recommend this product. 159006

by: Zach05/22/2012
