Product was received sooner than expected and in excellent condition. The product is very well made and installation instructions are simple and straight forward. I would recommend Etrailer to anyone. 718312

2016 Toyota 4Runner

The Curt front receiver hitch was very well made: good welds and plenty of powdercoat. On my 2016 4Runner Trail edition it fit fine but required 2 people to manipulate it into position. Some of the bolts were tough to get at, but was doable with effort. I was worried it might interfere with the skid plate but I think it will be OK, however the plastic air deflector might be hard to remove. Etrailer shipped fast and no problems. They even answered a question, which Curt customer service did not. 580578

  • Should Skid Plate Be Removed or Modified for Installing Curt Front Hitch on 2018 4Runner TRD
    Completely removing the skid plate on your 2018 Toyota 4Runner to make room for a front mount hitch like the Curt # C31076 that you referenced will be much simpler than just trying to trim the needed areas to allow fitment of the hitch's mounting brackets and crosstube. There aren't any specific instructions for this available so you would just need to cut the areas based on the hitch dimensions and how it lines up with the skid plate if you decide to do this. Since you would need still...

  • Does the Skid Plate on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Need to be Removed to Install a Front Hitch
    The front skid plate you have on your 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD will need to be removed in order to install a front mount trailer hitch like the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31076. This has to do with where the hitch mounts in relation to the skid plate and the lack of space for both to attach. There will be no way to install a front mount hitch on the vehicle without either removing or modifying the skid plate.

  • Which Front Hitch for 2013 4Runner SR5
    According to my contact in the engineering department at Curt, the two front receiver fits for the 2013 Toyota 4Runner are the # C31054 for limited or SR5 models and the # 31367 for the Trail models. Curt tells me that due to differences at the front frame structure and tow hooks, the hitches aren't interchangeable I'm sorry to say. It's not just a difference in the front fascia/air dam. Your best bet would be to go with the # C31054. The C31076 is a fit for 2014 to present 4Runner...

    The Curt multipurpose ball mount # D210 with a 2 inch drop and a similar Maxxtow model are the only ones available. You could use your bike rack in a front mount hitch, # C31076 for SR5 or Trail Editions of the 2016 4Runner or # C31054 for Limited models. Or you could compensate for the height difference by raising the height of the trailer.

  • How to Carry an Electric Bike on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner While Towing
    I do have options for you but the Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack part # TH9001PRO has a 35 lb per bike weight capacity which means it would not be suitable for your 50 lb e-bike. The cradles themselves are only rated for 35 lbs so I cannot recommend you exceed this. With that being said we do still have options for you even when pulling a trailer. In order to carry the bike on the vehicle you would need to install a front mount hitch like the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch part # C31054...
