1996 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup Questions and Answers


  • Fit of Draw-Tite Class III Hitch # 75034 on 1996 Chevy 1500 C/K Series Pick Up
  • The Draw-Tite Class III hitch you referenced, part # 75034 fits Chevy C/K Series pick up trucks from 1963-1987, so it is not a fit for your 1996 model. However, they offer a Class III, part # 75033 that is a confirmed fit. The hitch has the same capacity as the one you mentioned, and the hitch is similarly priced. You can see the installation instructions by clicking the provided link. You might also need the following to complete your towing system: Trailer Wiring Harness w/ 4-pole trailer

  • Will RBW UHS-85 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Reese Above Bed Rails in a 1996 Chevy K3500
  • RBW was bought out a while back and it is hard to find information on their hitches. If your hitch is the Lil Rocker then we know that it will fit in the Reese above the bed rails included with many Reese installation kits. For your 1996 K3500 you would need installation kit # RP30035. If you have a different hitch then you will need to take some measurements of its mounting feet to determine if they fit the slots on the industry standard rails. The Reese rails have 3 sets of mounting slo

  • Brake Light Signal Wire Color on a 1996 K2500 Pickup Truck to Install a Brake Controller
  • GM traditionally used a white wire for the brake light signal wire at the stop light switch wire on the C/K series pickup trucks. I strongly recommend testing the wires before you make your connections. The best way to ensure you are using the correct wire is to use a circuit tester to test for the wire that only shows power when the brake pedal is pressed. The wire should not have power with any other function. If you do not have a circuit tester, I recommend using the Quickee Circuit Teste

  • Custom Fit 5th Wheel Installation Kit Availability for a 1996 Chevrolet K3500 Pickup Truck

Our most popular universal installation kit is the Reese kit, # RP30035. The above bed base rails will work with any fifth wheel hitch that uses the industry standard above bed base rails like the Reese Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30081, that you referenced.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1996 Chevy Z-71
  • The first thing you are going to need to flat tow your 1996 Chevy C/K Z-71 is a set of base plates. For that I recommend you get the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1623. This is the correct kit for your truck as long as its not a 1-ton model or a diesel. Next you are going to need a set of tow bars. Since your truck more than likely weighs more than 5,000 lbs you will need a tow bar with additional capacity. I would recommend the Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar # BX4325. This tow bar has 6,500 lbs of cap

  • Ultra-Fab RV Bumper Hitch Recommendation For Motor Home
  • While we do have a hitch that will work for your needs, the Ultra-Fab Bumper Mount Hitch # UF35-946402 you referenced is designed specifically for a 4 inch by 4 inch bumper and would not fit. The Ultra-Fab Bumper # UF35-946401 is a perfect fit as it is intended for 4 inch by 4-1/2 inch RV bumpers with a weight capacity of 200 lbs. It features a 2-inch receiver opening with a plate measuring 5-7/8 inches by 4-7/8 inches. Just a reminder, this is intended for RV-approved accessories only and

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1996 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck Behind a Motor Home
  • I am glad you emailed us because there are some things that you need to be aware of. First, the Tow Ready tow bar, # 63180 is only rated for 5,000 pounds and your 1996 Chevy Silverado could easily exceed this capacity. The other problem with the tow bar is that it is only rated for a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour. We need to get you a proper set up. The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the truck owners manual to determine if it can be flat towed and if so what special r

  • Locating the Stop Light Wire on a 1996 Chevrolet Pickup for a Brake Controller
  • If the white wire that you found is not hot when the brake pedal is pressed, then it is not the correct wire from the stop light switch that you need for the brake controller. There may be multiple white wires under the dash, I recommend looking for a heavier gauge white wire in a bundle of wires along the steering column. There will be a bundle of wires going from what looks like a 50 pin connector, up the steering column toward the turn signal, the wire can be located in that bundle. This

  • What Color is Reverse Light Wire on a 1996 Chevrolet K1500 Pickup
  • The best way to confirm which wire activates your vehicle reverse lights is to remove one taillight assembly and visually identify which lead goes to the reverse light bulb. To remove the taillight, open the tailgate and locate and remove the two taillight retaining screws. This will allow you to pull out the taillight assembly for access to the wiring. Then, for safety sake, it will be useful to have a helper turn the ignition to the on position without starting the vehicle. Then place t

  • 205-75/15 Tire and Wheel Combination Needed for 5 on 3-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern Travel Trailer Hubs
  • At this time we do not carry a trailer wheel with a 5 on 3-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The smallest 5 bolt pattern we carry is the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern that you mentioned. The only smaller bolt pattern that we carry is the 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern, see link. Tires for the 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern typically only go up to 13 inch wheel diameters. You may be measuring your wheel bolt pattern incorrectly. Just in case this is the issue, I added a link to our trailer wheel bolt pattern measu

  • Truck Bed Ladder Rack Options for a 1996 Chevrolet 1500 With a Stepside Bed
  • I have a ladder rack that will fit your 1996 Chevrolet 1500 with stepside bed, however, I spoke with my contact at DeWalt and verified that the Industrail-Grade Full-Frame Steel Ladder Rack, # DIGFFR360, will not fit your 1996 Chevrolet 1500 stepside and they do not have a spec for the minimum width the rack can accommodate. I would recommend using the TracRac Ladder Rack, # TA27000-01. This ladder rack is designed for stepside or flareside style truck beds and does not require any drilling o

  • Installation of 5th Wheel Hitch in 1996 Chevrolet 1500 C/K Short Bed Truck
  • When installing a fifth-wheel hitch, the hitch would have to somehow be attached to the frame of the truck. If you wanted to have the hitch permanently installed to your truck, I would recommend taking the truck and hitch to a qualified trailer professional. However, when installing the hitch, it may sit fairly lower than how the hitch is designed to be installed in the bed of the truck. Since your 1996 Chevrolet C/K Truck is a short bed, it is recommended to use a slider type fifth-wheel hit

  • Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancer # TGMRCK25 Recommendation for a 1996 Chevy C/K Truck
  • The Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part # TGMRCK25, is much easier to install than air springs, no air hoses need to be run, no compressors or gauges to hook up. This kit will also not affect your unloaded ride quality as much as adding a leaf to your suspension would. The # TGMRCK25, would only be used when you were hauling enough weight to use a significant portion of your suspension, otherwise the ride of your vehicle would be completely unaffected. That would be the main dif

  • How Long are U-Bolts in Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Hitch Safety Chain Kit # 6308, 1996 Chevy 3500
  • According to the instructions, linked for reference, the Replacement U-Bolt Safety Chain Kit for Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # 6308, are 5-1/2 inches long. I do know that the bed is not as thick as that 1 inch thick steel plate, so considering that the bolts will have to go through the bed, the plate, possibly the hitch depending on how it is designed and how much space there is, these bolts will probably be long enough to install and to use on your 1996 Chevy C/K series 3500.

  • Items Needed to Install a Brake Controller on a 1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Pickup
  • As long as you have an existing 4-Way trailer connector at the rear of your 1996 Chevrolet C/K pickup you will have all of the parts needed to install a brake controller.
