2009 Nissan Rogue Trailer Hitch


How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2009 Nissan Rogue


Today on this 2009 Nissan Rogue, we will be installing Hidden Hitch part number 87457. This installation will also apply to the Draw-Tite part number 75606. Looking underneath the vehicle at the driver side frame rail, you can see here that there are three existing weld nuts in the bottom of the frame. Into these weld nuts we will be using the 12 mm bolts along with the conical tooth washers. That setup will be the same over here on the passenger side. But you will note that we have, not only an existing tow hook that is taking up the first two holes at the rear of the frame, but we also have an existing bolt here at the forward side as well. So the tow hook which consists of two bolts here at the bottom of the frame and two bolts on the side of the frame will need to be removed before we can get started. And then we will also want to remove the bolt at the more forward side as well.

With all the bolts and the tow hook removed we can go ahead and put the hitch up into place. And again, we will be using the new hardware that is provided with the hitch installation kit to hang the hitch up in place. With all the bolts in place you can go ahead and torque them down. You want to check with the directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for each individual bolt. Now that we have all the bolts torqued down our installation is complete. This will conclude the installation of hitch part number 87457.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Nissan Rogue - Curt

Today on this 2014 Nisan Rogue, we're going to show you the Curt Class III 2" Receiver Hitch, part number C13204. This is what the hitch looks like once installed on our Rogue. On first glance, all you can see is the receiver tube from beneath the bumper coming out to the edge of the bumper right here. If we look on the outside it has a reinforcement around the edge. For safety chains it has a loop style hook up here, this uses a 5/8" hitch pin or your favorite locking pin. This reach goes almost all the way back towards the exhaust, which clears it by at least a few inches, then the arms go out from underneath and up into the frame.



Best 2015 Nissan Rogue Hitch Options

Today on our 2015 Nissan Rogue Select we're going to be looking at the Hidden Hitch class three, part number 87663; the Draw-Tite class three, part number 75902; the CURT class two, part number 36542; and the CURT class three, part number C13204. Now at first glance, all of our Nissan hitches that we have here are going to look the same. We've got very subtle differences in the hitches that we're going to point out to you to really help out in deciding which one is going to work the best. Our Hidden Hitch and our Draw-Tite, they're essentially the same hitch. Something that they do have that you're not going to see with your CURTs is going to be the dual pin setup here on the side. What that does is the rear hole or the hole closest to the front of the vehicle takes a standard 5/8" pin just like your other class three CURT here, but they've got that second hole right there in the front. That's what really stands apart from the CURT.
