Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - 13019

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (158 Customer Reviews)

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Great hitch. Solid and compact. The hitch was slightly bent on arrival. Could have happened during shipping. I used a bottle jack and some blocks to spread the forward arm. Toughest part was drilling two holes in the pickup frame.

1997 Ford Ranger

Excellent fit for my 1997 Ford Ranger (6' bed 4cyl). Package arrived in TWO days. Received hitch at 1300hrs and had it installed within 2 hrs! ... and I had to drill the two holes in the frame as mine didn't have the pre-drilled holes. easy-peasy. Bought another brand drom etrailer several years ago for my 2010 Subaru Forrester and it was almost as easy as thisd install. happy camper.


I watched videos on [etrailer] YouTube ahead of time and it was a breeze to install. 2 people would be the easy way but I used a floor jack and did it myself.

2010 Ford Ranger

i am 78 years old cancer survivor with arthritis in wrists and shoulders. My wife is 75 with 2 knee replacements and arthritis in hands and shoulders.
Together we installed the tow hitch on a 2002 Ford Ranger in 1 hour and 10 minutes yep we tightened the bolts to 110 ft lb and this included selecting the tools and stowing them after the job. Great hitch, fast delivery, and great price. Thanks and God bless.


The fit was perfect. Hardware was included and all the bolts lined up easy. Had it installed 25 min.

Richard M.


Still perfect, not a problem. I own a bike shop and send all my customers to you guys for trailer hitches.

Etrailer Expert

@RichardM Thank you we really appreciate that, and we're glad to hear you're happy with your hitch!


I purchased this hitch from Curt because I believed they were a high quality manufacturer. The quality of these welds are extremely poor. Bad enough that I’m worried about them. Luckily I purchased this hitch for my ranger before I needed to purchase one for my F350. Learned my lesson. I won’t be buying any more Curt products from this point forward.

2004 Ford Ranger

Having installed more than a dozen trailer hitches throughout my life I can say that this was the easiest to install that I have done! Perfect fit, easy to attach with no issues. The hardest part was removing the J-bolt from the frame, and that wasn't that difficult really. I wish all of the hitches I have installed in the past were this easy! Big plus was how fast I got it, a day earlier that expected.



Still working great. Use it almost everyday. Bolts have never needed tightening and finish is still good with no rust or discoloration. Very pleased.

2010 Ford Ranger

This hitch fits my 96 Ford Ranger quite well. As per the instructions, I had to drill two holes in the frame. It fit and it works. I use it quite often to pull a 5 x 10 ft trailer and large zero turn mower.

Howard J.


Fine. Use it a lot.

1999 Ford Ranger

The hitch installed without a hitch. It took me alone, less than 45 minutes to get it on. Im very happy with my purchase the shipping time and etrailer as a whole. I'm only towing a 10 foot single axel but the stock bumper hitch was already bending my bumper. The new hitch seems very sturdy and will handle my small trailer just fine.


The hitch fit perfect. I bent my bumper up trying to tow a friend out of a mud hole. Looking on line for used bumpers most were pickup only no shipping. It was cheaper to get a brand new trailer hitch. I have a 2002 Ford ranger supercab stepside. this bolted right up to the stock holes in the frame I did not even have to drill any holes. 20 minutes it took me to put on. I call
Jesse M and he answered a few questions and took my order. Great service

1999 Ford Ranger

Hitch arrived in 3 days. Directions very clear. One hour start to finish as I did it alone with the help of the truck bottle jack. Much faster if 2 people. Perfect fit and spare tire cranks right back into place.

2004 Ford Ranger

Great service and great fit on truck.

Dwight M.


I have purchased several curt items and all have preformed very well. Pricing is usually the best out there.


I have bought 3 or 4 hitches from etrailer, they are a custom fit and very easy to install. Great product at a great price. Very fast shipping, got mine in two days.


I was able to install this hitch in about 30 minutes after watching a Utube.
Well built. Fits almost perfectly. Took 4 bolts (provideed)


Product is as advertised, shipping was very quick and free.


Very nice , heavy duty hitch fit my truck perfectly - did not even have to do any drilling . Rigged up a carrier on my Jack and braced my bumper with 2 - 2 ' stepladders, pulled old bolts and lifted hitch into place and bolted on , piece of cake one man operation.



Works fine, have used for trailers, extenders, bike racks, motorcycle rack, cargo hauler


Excellent hitch. Installed in less than 30 minutes. Exact fit



Hitch has worked flawlessly. Going to add one to the Tacoma soon without any hesitation.


Came quickly and fit perfectly!

1991 Ford Ranger

Excellent receiver, easy to install even with having to drill two holes. Only reason I gave a less than excellent review is due to the bolts provided. I would have liked the bolts to be of a higher grade and better manufacture. Bolts made in the USA would have suited me better although the ones provided are of good enough quality for the majority of installations. It only took me about an hour to install the hitch on my 1991 ford ranger and it looks good.



one year later it is working well.

1999 Ford Ranger

Awesome.!! Awesome project start to finish. etrailer was FAST. easy to do. even on a 21 year old truck

2001 Ford Ranger

I installed this on the front of my 2001 Ranger for using with a Snowbear snowplow. It has worked well for that, but also turned the truck into an invaluable trailer mule. I can now push trailers around when I need to rather than trying to back them into place. If you don't know what I mean, put one of these on the front of your truck and hook a trailer up--you'll see very quickly how handy it is.


There products are top of the line and custom fit.


Fit a 2000 Ford ranger excellently, installation was easy, cardboard shipping box was a bit dinged up but that is due to how the shipping company handles it. No issues after 4 months.

Ford Ranger

It does it's job. Towed a pop up camper with my Ford ranger across the country after installing this last year.


May have shipped with incorrect hardware: had 4 carriage bolts and 6 base plates. its enough, but i bought two more bolts anyway.

great reciever, though. I'll only ever buy Curt.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit with Full Size Spare on a 2001 Ford Ranger
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13019 will fit with the full size spare on your 2001 Ford Ranger so you have nothing to worry about! I'm attaching a photo we took when we installed this hitch and we were able to get the full spare back in place. You might need to angle it or move it around a little to get it back in the resting spot but it will definitely fit.

  • Spare Tire Clearance With Curt Class III Receiver Part # 13019 Installed on 2003 Ford Ranger
    According to my contacts at Curt Manufacturing, Ranger models manufactured after the 1997 model year will not have any spare tire clearance issues. You might find that temporarily removing the spare during the install will allow more working room. I do not currently have any photos of this particular hitch installed on a 2003 Ranger.

  • Replacing OEM Trailer Hitch on 2010 Ford Ranger with Curt Hitch 13019
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13019 is a fit for a 2010 Ford Ranger. It can be used to replace a factory hitch no problem. It does state in the instructions that drilling is required for some models but it should not be required if you already have a factory hitch in place. Therefore, there should be no modifications needed.

  • Will a Curt Trailer Hitch from a 1997 Ford Ranger Fit a 2006 Ford Ranger
    We have come across similar issues though perhaps not specifically on Ford Rangers. Like you said Curt trailer hitch # 13019 fits both the 1997 and 2006 Ford Ranger. But if you look at the instructions which I have linked for you it mentions that drilling is required but on some models the holes may already be present. I think that on your 1997 the holes were present and on the newer 2006 the holes needed are not there. Regardless you will need to drill to install the hitch on the 2006. The...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2004 Ford Ranger Edge
    It is difficult to identify what hitch fits just by looking at the holes in the frame. However, I can tell you that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13138 is confirmed to fit your 2004 Ford Ranger Edge. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver. It has a maximum gross trailer weight of 4,000 lbs and tongue weight of 400 lbs. If you would prefer the look of a square tube then the # 13019 also fits your Ford Ranger Edge. I have attached an installation video for your reference.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For a Keystone Montana 5TH Wheel Camping Trailer
    I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13703. This receiver will allow you to bolt to an RV frame between 22" and 72" wide. You will need to drill the mounting holes for the frame along with holes in the receiver cross tube to secure it inside the mounting brackets. You can have the receiver welded if you prefer to not drill into your frame or cross tube.

  • Comparing the Curt Round Hitch 13138 and Curt Square Hitch 13019 for a 1992 Ford Ranger
    The difference between the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch part # 13019 and the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch part # 13138 is strictly aesthetics. The square tube option is a bit more cost effective and it matches the body lines on your 1992 Ford Ranger so this is what I recommend. I have attached a photo of each so you can compare them side by side.

I like the Draw Tite the most because it has a concealed cross tube so the hitch in general will be less visible. Also it has the best price too.

    In order to determine the correct grease seal you need to take apart the hub and measure your spindle where the grease seal rides to the thousandths of an inch with a digital caliper. This will be the part closest to the shaft of the spindle, which will give you the correct measurement. For example, if you measured and got 2.125" you will need the 10-10 Grease or Oil Double-Lip Seals # RG06-090.
