GMC HC Animation

Reese has created this light-up hitch cover to look like an ordinary GMC logo in daytime, non-braking situations. When you turn on your vehicle's tail lights or activate the brakes, bright red LEDs shine through the letters. The long-lasting LEDs have 2 intensity levels. The red lights remain set at low illumination when your vehicle's tail lights are on. When you activate your brakes or turn on your hazard lights, the LEDs burn brighter to draw attention to your vehicle. The hitch cover will not flash when your turn signals are activated.

Hitch covers are fun to show off and they look cool, but they do more than just accessorize your vehicle. A hitch cover helps to keep dirt out of your receiver and deters rust, so you can easily insert ball mounts and other hitch accessories when you need them. This hitch cover is a great way to protect your receiver and proclaim your loyalty to the renowned GMC brand, all in one.

Simple Assembly

Mounting brackets for both 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers are included. These 2-piece brackets attach to the back of the hitch cover face with the supplied hardware.

The 2" bracket has countersunk holes that allow it to sit flush on the back of the emblem when fully assembled. There is a slot built into this bracket that allows you to pass the wiring through. The 1-1/4" bracket mounts on top of the threaded posts. Instead of passing the wires through a built-in slot, you are required to run the wires between the bracket and the emblem with this setup.

Note that the converter, which is necessary to keep the hitch cover from flashing when your turn signals are activated, can be tucked inside the assembled 2" mounting bracket. However, the module doesn't fit inside of the 1-1/4" bracket, so if you use this hitch cover on your 1-1/4" receiver, the converter will hang on the outside of the mounting bracket.

Video Transcript for Reese Hitch Covers - OEM - 86061 Review

Today, we are going to review part number 86061. This is the Reese GMC LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover for 1-1/4 and 2-inch hitches. This is an officially licensed 3D GMC logo, which will add a stylish touch to your vehicle. It does use red LEDs which will light up to give your vehicle some flash and make it more visible, as well as to alert other drivers to slow down or stop when you do. When plugged in to your four-way, it will have a low illumination while using your tail lights and then a brighter, higher illumination when you break or engage the hazard lights. It does use energy efficient LEDs which are long lasting.

The hitch cover does have an adapter which a foam gasket which will help protect your vehicles hitch receiver from water and dirt. It is made of a corrosion resistant plastic with a metallic coating that becomes transparent when the lights are activated. Now, this part comes with a 1-1/4-inch adapter that would bolt on and the gasket for that, and it also comes with the 2-inch, which Ive already attached to the hitch cover and the mounting hardware and the gasket right here. I am going to give you a measurement on the face of this. The overall width is 6 inches.

The overall height is 3-1/4 inches. It is a simple installation. Basically, I have a 2-inch receiver here to give you an idea. You have your holes here which will use a pin and clip or a hitch lock, either one would be sold separately. You would just slide this into the hitch.

Line up the holes with the hole in the hitch. Put your pin through and attach it, and then with the four-way, you can plug in. I have a four-way power supply here that Im going to show you the brightness of the light. You just plug it in and as you can see, that would be the hitch cover with the tail lights on, and when you apply your breaks or your hazard lights, it would be even brighter. Now, Im going to turn off the overhead lights to give you an idea of what this would look like with the lights out or in the dark.

That would be it with the tail lights on and then when you apply your breaks or hazard lights, it would even be a higher illumination. This part does come with a 90-day warranty. That should do it for part number 86061.

Good product and fast service. 323593

Very Easy to install. I installed it on my 2015 Sierra 2500. A helpful hint: removing the taillight assembly provides access to the backside of the mount. I used silicone to seal both the front and back of the mount. 233834

Poor quality, plastic construction. Short length of wiring not conducive to 2014 Sierra Truck Fit. 129249

It worked great until the December cold came then the light stopped working 348539

- 86061

The trailer hitch GMC light looks good, but I wish that I had known that it was plastic, not metal. Also, the warning that the electronics can't get wet would have been important to know in the advertisement, since we live in a very rainy area with standing water. 174892

I had to buy an adapter to connect the four way to my truck that i was not aware of 118004

- 86061

I have purchased two of these, one after the other and they both burned out less then two months after buying them. Not a good product at all! 310783

Just received my GMC trailer LED hitch Cover. It is an outstanding product. The quality is better than I expected. The price was fair; the only drawback For my application was the wiring harness was" too" short; for my 2500 Sierra Denali, but after a short trip to A local auto parts store to purchase An extension, the assembly was a simple PLUG and PLAY. 481029
