Today on this 2000 Chevrolet Blazer we are going to be installing part number 36244 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to Hidden Hitch part number 90183. We are going to go ahead and show you the mounting locations for our hitch. Its going to be the two factory bumper bolts that are holding your bumper in position, as well as the larger oval hole near the rear of the vehicle. It is going to be the same on the passenger side as well. :26
What we need to go ahead and do is remove these bolt brackets on both sides that is holding on our bumper and we are going to put new hardware in that position. We are going to go ahead and spray WD-40 lubricant on our bolts here since it is an older vehicle. It will help us get our hardware off. In order to get the top bolt removed from the bracket up here we are going to take loose the bumper support bar and move it in so we can get a wrench on there to loosen up our nut. 1:00
Now that we have removed the stock bolts, we are going to go ahead and put our hitch up into position. It is probably best to have a second set of hands to help you hold it up while we position our blocks and carriage bolts into our mounting locations. Now that we have all our hardware in position, we are going to tighten and torque the bolts as specified in the instructions. Now that our hitch is tightened and torqued down we are going to go ahead and reposition our bumper support bars. 1:42
Alright now we are going to take a couple measurements for you. From the center of the hitch pin hole, out to the edge of the bumper is approximately 3-1/2inches. From the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening measures about approximately 16-1/2 inches. That will complete the install of part number 36244 from Draw-Tite on this 2000 Chevrolet Blazer.

Today on our 1996 Chevy Blazer, we're going to install a curt hitch part number C13020. Each process we do here on the driver side is going to be repeated identically on the passenger side. A total of six attachment points, three on each sides. Our fasteners will be our 1/2" carriage bolt and block along with a 1/2 plunge knot because this vehicle doesnt have a spare tire, we're ready to go ahead and put our hitch directly into position. We'll use our bolt and block to go from inside to frame rail out to hold into position once we get into place.Now, it's a good time to get an extra set of hands that will hold the hitch into place while installing your fasteners. We'll install each fasteners finger tight until we get them all in place.
