excellent product had it on the truck in 45 min start to finish 740127

2006 Chevrolet Colorado

The shipping box was destroyed and in 3 different areas of the hitch itself the paint was scratched/worn down to the metal. The install instructions were not at all what was necessary for my truck. Another reviewer pointed out that he had the same issues but I had additional. I had to remove the plastic splash guard as the hitch would not go up into the frame enough to line the holes up for the bolts. The round flat bolt would never fit in the holes indicated by the installation instructions unless you CUT the frame. Like I said, another reviewer had to go about 5" towards the cabin for a better hole, mine was more like a foot towards the cabin, underneath a flap of plastic. Once I figured that out, no problem fishing the wire and bolts through frame. You'll need a 3/4" socket for the smaller nut/bolt combo and a 1 1/8" or 28mm socket for the larger. It would've been nice to know and read this ahead of time in the instructions, so I wouldn't have to go out mid-install to buy the appropriate socket. Again, another reviewer with the same vehicle put that same information in his review (which I read after the fact because I was frustrated and wanted to see if others had issues). Now that the hitch is in place, you think you're done, but the splash guard NO LONGER fits and will under no circumstance go back to where it needs to be for the factory bolt holes. So, for the people whom didn't remove their splash guards for the install, good luck when it comes time to change your oil or work on anything underneath there, as you will have to take the hitch BACK OFF before you can remove that splash guard. So overall, the ordering experience and shipping was great. The followup email wanting a review after the item was delivered was.....ok, but everything after, not so much. It's not their fault. They're a third party selling the product so it's the manufacturer's problem but I can't imagine I'm the only one in the history of this vehicle and this hitch that has had a problem. Mentioned in other reviews as well, they could've boxed the hitch better. Is the star review for the product itself or the overall experience? For me, it's the overall experience. 574580

2006 Chevrolet Colorado

This was my 4th hitch from etrailer.com. I keep coming back because of the good service, price, and mostly the videos. Although this one doesn't have an installation video (maybe it will by the time you read this), I read the instructions and felt like it wouldn't be too bad and uderstood the basics from my previous experience with the 3 previous hitches. It was easy to install, but I had to go out and buy a big 1 and 1/8" socket for the large bolts. You'll also need a deep 3/4" for the smaller ones. I can also confirm that this hitch fit great on a 2006 Isuzu i-280 (re-badged Colorado). I'm always impressed with etrailer.com's fast shipping, and they've made me a repeat customer. 548708

Price was good. Ordering was easy. Customer service was excellent. Received it on time. It fits perfectly. Easy to install...Im disabled and still it was easier than I thought it would be although not the 20min it says it will take. In fact I was going to have someone install it for me but thought Id better line things up to make sure it would fit and opps it was in place. FYI they should change the install instructions in that the wire used as a bolt-fish needs a feeder wire from the bolt hole, connect to bolt-fish and then pull through...thats much easier than playing around with that little wire trying to hit the hole. 368365

Heres a funny thing...it was installed right away but Ive never had to use it yet its set up as a winch attachment and weve not had any weather or me getting caught in a bad spot. But it is sure nice to know its there if I need it.

Very pleased with this hitch. All hardware is included and the instructions are easy to follow. The hitch is very sturdy and I am quite thrilled to install a product that has been made in the USA. I plan to use it with a winch system. The two recovery "loops" gives my truck a secure place to affix a tow hook if I need to pull something or be pulled. 330758

Excellent quality, very strong welds and the paint job is perfect quality, there were 2 holes in the box from shipping which some bubble wrap can fix, Very satisfied, higher quality then expected and the price was the lowest of all sites. Thank you Bob 329939

2009 Chevrolet Colorado

The front hitch installed easily on on my 2009 Chevy 4x4 V8 Colorado. I do recommend getting a telescopic magnetic pickup tool to hold the 3/4 nut so you don't have to remove the plastic splash pan under the truck. I can feel a difference in the steering wheel with the hitch on there though. Hope the extra weight doesn't wear anything out. 98278

The diagram shows the 1/2" bolts going right in by the hole in the bottom of the frame,they did not fit through that side hole.I had to go back toward the passenger compartment about 5" to get the 1/2" bolt and plate in.On my 4 wheel drive truck I had to drop the skid plate to get the 3/4" bolts in.You should recommend a longer receiver for it,I had to take off the license plate bracket.My standard was too short.The hitch is the best thing for moving my boat and jet ski around.Triple A plus. 23700

Fit perfect, good instructions Shipped quickly, fit perfect, good instructions, special tool to get inside frame with bolt worked great. One person install. Box it was shipped in needed better securing but no damage was done to hitch. 1845
