The old hitch was sagging this one is much better. Only issue was after market Banks Duel exhaust brackets had to be modified.

I think it came out great. I had to do some additional mods to make it fit. With the ranch hand bumper the hitch is 2 inches to short. I took two additional receivers cut them down and used them as spacers. Also needed to purchase 6 3 1/2 class 8 bolts. (Note: The ranch hand bumper also removes the bumper mounts which is the third attachment point.) In addition I also drilled to additional holes in the top of the hitch, which I used two of the supplied bolts. I was going to weld the spacers on but felt it was not necessary after looking at the install.


I was able to drill holes to match the 3rd set of bolt holes on the hitch.
The performance has been great. Thanks


And this is a very heavy towing receiver that was installed to upgrade the towing capacity from the OEM towing receiver to Class V. Installation was not bad at all, although it is difficult to lift in the place without assistance. (I used ratchet straps.).

Do yourself a favor and lower the spare tire, which allows for easier access to the bolts on top of the frame. Also, I suggest covering the ground underneath with large sheets of cardboard or carpeting to avoid scratching the receiver when it’s on the ground and ready to be moved into place.

All the requisite fasteners were included. All in all, I think it took me about an hour and a half to install. Unfortunately, the supplied bracket for the 7 pin plug is not powder coated, so I painted it to match the receiver.

The hitch has easy to attach safety chain hooks and is stout enough to handle my 14K tandem axle equipment trailer when loaded. Needed more than the standard 10K hitch to avoid needing a gooseneck trailer. It was the perfect solution.


Packaged good and it came a day early which is always good. B&W makes great products. I purchased this hitch because I needed a heavier duty one for a heavier camper.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Excellent product , very good alignment and design, looks as strong as the original aftermarket one I had on the truck.The only problem I had with it at all was the delivery of it , although very timely to the tee actually , was the delivery company ( must have been lazy loaders or delivery people) The corners of the box were ripped as if it was too heavy to lift so the box was ripped at each end due to dragging it ,causing some hardware to get lost, in fact the bag looked as if the box wasn’t done giving birth to it, literally it was hanging out of the box! And then left on my bluestone landing to be found , also scratching the stone! Product is great, delivery driver needs to figure out what he/she wants to do for a living and improve!Sorry for that part of negativity but you did say you wanted to improve if possible.


Looks lik3 everything she explained on the phone. Thank you. Quick shipping is awesome!


Awesome product and awesome service


Simple to install. Fit perfectly. A great heavy duty upgrade front the factory hitch.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado

Super fast shipping. Super fast installation. We’ll see how she does with some weight behind her, but noticeable improvement from stock based off quality of build and hardware.

2004 GMC Sierra

Verry good quality, and fit


I think the trailer hitch receiver itself is a great product. I think the shipping process needs to be revaluated. I received the box directly from UPS which mutilitated the box the item was sent in. I told the driver the assembly contents were missing and after inspection I was correct. It was said if I took it off the truck it was mine. But if I rejected it I would have to have the factory send me a new box. Which if had the same service as this box it probably end up in the same conditon. Again, the product itself is good the shipping needs to be addressed.


I received my B&W hitch just a couple days after ordering it from Etrailer. It was boxed well came in perfect condition and Etrailer followed up on the sale. As a company I will definitely buy from again.
Now to the product it was well built looked good and instructions were right on. I highly recommend this hitch to anyone looking to buy a hitch



As like the day I installed it, It still looks like new have not had any issues pull a trailer 3 to 4 days a week still like new


Customer service was quick to reply to questions I had and friendly as well. The product itself was easy to install and has performed well thus far. The coating compared to the oem hitches is nice and thick. If I had to buy again I would without hesitation.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic

Prices are fair, selection is great, and service is over the top. Great buying experience!

2002 Chevrolet Silverado

Very easy install on my 2002 2500hd and is very heavy duty. Too bad GM didn’t put this nice of a hitch on this truck when new.

2006 GMC Sierra

Easy to install. Plenty of room without needing to move the spare. This went on my 06 Sierra 2500 duramax w/6 1/2 ft bed.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

This was delivered just as stated. Box was a bit damaged but everything was good. It mounted on my 04 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD perfect. The customer service is a class act and second to none in my book. I would recommend
Etrailer to anyone. I am awaiting more parts to arrive in the next few days.
When I ordered these parts they sent them the same day I ordered, great job.

It’s a trailer hitch, it’s working great towing my travel trailer wherever I go!


So... the OEM cat III hitch rusted up pretty good on my pickup. When we loaded the trailer with a load of hay - about 150 bales (lots of hitch weight), it bent down -- a lot. So I bought a hitch from the local parts store, "it should fit" was the line. It didn't. Ordered a better one (B&W) from etrailer, it was 80% of the cost, shipping was on a special, no sales tax, and all this with the guarantee it would fit. It did. Installation on the cat V hitch was about 20 minutes. It arrived right on schedule and the best part.... no surprises. Thanks Julie at etrailer. I'll be back for more. So what am I going to do with this 16000 lb hitch? Pull 16000 pounds!!! Us workin' men pull around backhoes, dozers, man lifts and the occasional load of hay or logs.


This is the 5th hitch I have installed over the years, and by far the easiest, best quality hitch I have seen. It fit perfectly and no drilling was required. It is replacing the OEM hitch that came as part of the tow package that rusted severely and required being attached to the rear bumper for support. This new hitch is much heavier and stronger than the original, and I could not have lifted up by myself, but because it is a 3 piece assembly I was able to loosely mount the 2 side frames and then slide the center section in without any help. It couldn't have been easier.


Great hitch! I absolutely beat the crap out of it every time a trailer is hooked to it and it hasnt bent like the stock 2500hd hitch did. Hasnt rusted yet either even being daily driven in ohio salt. It even holds up to taking it to local truck pulls


Excellent hitch. It was simple and quick to install. Used mainly to pull a 30 foot camper and various utility trailers. I had bent the stock hitch that came on my truck which was lighter duty than this one. I would purchase again if ever needed.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado

Installed on a 07 2500 silverado classic. Much heavier than factory hitch install was simple.

2003 GMC Sierra

The hitch is top quality,mounting brackets are one quarter inch and powder coated.Easy to install, came with all needed hardware.The receiver sits one inch higher than the factory hitch,not an issue.I would recommend this hitch for a factory replacement.
