Best 2005 Honda Pilot Hitch Options
Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options for your 2005 Honda Pilot. The two best hitch options for your Honda Pilot are going to be the Draw-Tite class three, part number 75599, and the CURT class three, part number 13328. The biggest difference that you're going to see between the Draw-Tite and the CURT is that here on the Draw-Tite the face of the receiver tube opening and the hitch pinhole are further out. That's going to give you more clearance to the rear of the vehicle, but that's also going to make this a little bit more visible than here on the CURT. Both of these hitches are going to be great for your class three hitch-mounted accessories such as bike racks, cargo carriers, or ball mounts, but I think the biggest determining factor is going to be do you want one that's going to give you more clearance or do you want one that's going to be a little bit more hidden. We've got a CURT here on this Pilot. Although that Draw-Tite gives us more clearance you're still going to have pretty good clearance with this CURT because it isn't too far recessed in from the rear of this bumper here.

Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2005 Honda Pilot
Today on our 2005 Honda Pilot we'll be installing the Tow Ready T1 Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number 118336. To being our install we'll first go ahead and open up the rear hatch. Then the rear storage compartment door and we'll remove the door and set it aside. Next we'll need to remove the rear threshold. To remove the rear threshold we simply need to get underneath of it and free the fasteners underneath using a flat blade screw driver. I'll get underneath the threshold and start working the fasteners to release them. When we remove the threshold and turn it over we can see the snap fasteners that secure it. Between the back edge of the storage compartment and the front edge of the sheet metal if we push forward we can locate the wiring connector.
