The receiver hitch was installed on a 2003 4Runner so a weight distribution set could be used; it replaced the factory hitch. The price was great, installation was done at a local shop and I finished adding the 7-pin power socket. The only thing that would have been better is if a power socket fitting was included with the hitch, No complaints about the hitch.


Comments
There have been no problems with the hitch. The hitch levels the 4Runner and maintains good wheel contact on the road.

Arrived in a very timely manner in good shape. Easy install with instructions. I chose not to drop the exhaust as you can get the bolts in easy enough with it on. For the factory seven way plug and bracket i just bent it back and it works great. I have ordered through etrailer before and will do it again in the future ! thanks guys Tyler


Comments
After a year I have had no problems towing my 6x10 cargo trailer or my tent trailer. Infact it still has no scratches even where the hitch slides in. Thanks for a quality product. Tyler

I purchased this to mount on a 2009 4Runner for use with a bicycle hitch rack. It was very easy to install. Installation took about 45 minutes (with a 14 yr old helping). I did not have to move or drop the muffler; instead, I used a flat wrench to work around the muffler. The most difficult part of the install was removing the tow hook from the 4Runner prior to getting started. Once installed, the hitch sticks out about 3 inches past the bumper. I was not expecting it to stick out this much, but it seems like a necessary part of the design due to where the tire is mounted.

I can't be any more satisfied with both the service and product I recieved from etrailer. My hitch arrived exactly when they said it would and was very easy to install. I had it on and ready to go within 30 minutes with no help necessary. Thanks again for the excellent service!

Easy to attach and a good fit to vehicle frame. The hitch does slightly come into contact with the lower fascia trim but shouldn't be a problem. Fast, tracked shipment from etrailer. Thanks, George.

etrailer did a great job getting the order shipped as quickly as I could have expected. The hitch itself is very nice overall and I am satisfied with the purchase. But I had some trouble getting some of the bolts to align. The larger rear bolts were no problem but the driver side front bolts did not line up until I use a long lever to load the hitch to the side. Other than the difficulty in alignment, there seems to be a grinder mark on this hitch. I plan to cover the mark in some type of rust prevention coating but I was less than impressed to see the exposed metal (very small area).

The trailer hitch installed easily on my Lexus GX470 once I cleaned up the threads of the weld nuts on the frame.

2008 Toyota 4Runner

etrailer delivered the product within a few days as promised. I installed the trailer hitch onto a 2008 Toyota 4Runner within about 1 hour. The most difficult part was removing the tow hook that was on the vehicle. I soaked the bolts with WD40 and let it sit for a day. Then needed to use a breaker bar to get the bolts free. I also sprayed all the bolt holes with WD40 and cleaned them with a wire brush so the new bolts would go in easier. Be sure and insert the new bolts about a quarter of the way in before installing the hitch just to be sure they will thread in easy. If you can do the prep work ahead of time installation will go pretty quick.

2007 Toyota 4Runner

Perfect fit for newly acquired 2007 4runner. Cleaned out the frame threads prior to delivery and it bolted on in about 15 minutes. Did not have to remove muffler hanger and all 8 holes lined up without effort. Also bent bracket for oem wiring plug upward and works perfectly too. If you don't bend it the hitch will block the plug cover from opening. As others have said removing original tow hook was hardest part. Once you have it off use those bolts to clean out the holes on the other side.

2007 Toyota 4Runner

This item was ordered for my 2007 4Runner. I was impressed by the construction and finish on the Curt hitch. Only concern I had was during installation, as viewed from the back of the vehicle, after installing the left side bolts to the frame - the right side of the mounting bracket to the frame was too narrow. As a result, I had to use a pry bar to force the hitch mount outward to get the bolts in. I've been a vehicle maintenance guy for over 50 years so it wasn't something I couldn't resolve. Other than that small issue, I'm very happy with the hitch.



- 13445
by:

Easy to install just bolt on. Have to move the trailer plug down though. Im a metal fabricator so it was easy to just make a new plug bracket. But it wouldn’t be fo bad just adding to the existing one. Overall i was satisfied

2006 Lexus GX 470

Product arrived quickly and as described. Bought Curt hitch 13445 for my 2006 Lexus GX. It is a sturdy hitch and was pretty easy to install. The tow hook came off easily with a breaker bar. The installation video helped a lot. I had to remove the driver side fascia but not the right. I then bolted back the fascia after I removed the tow hook assembly. The holes on the hitch were aligned a fit well. I installed it myself but it would be easier with two people. etrailer is a great company with great customer service. I’m very satisfied.



- 13445
by:

Straightforward install- impressed by etrailer website and experience throughout the process. The only minor design issue in the hitch is that it covers the 4runner's wiring connector. Others bend the plate or install a new one, I have not yet but realized the other day that I need to move a trailer.



- 13445
by:
2005 Toyota 4Runner

Shipping from etrailer.com was fast. Installation of the hitch receiver was fairly straightforward on my 2005 4Runner. If you have an existing weight bearing receiver, you will need to remove the rear bumper to access the bolts to remove that. You will need a breaker bar or an impact wrench to break those bolts loose. Installation was otherwise easy. The only other thing to consider is that the wiring harness will have to be moved or angled down because the tube for the receiver will block it.



- 13445
by:

Installation instructions were great. Product is working well. One issue though. Though hitch blocks access to the factory-installed wiring harness.

by:
2003 Lexus GX 470

Product is as described, easy to install and appears sturdy. However, I noticed there aren’t any holes for me to attach the OEM wiring harness and box. I will zip tie, but it’s not as visually appealing. Also, I used locking washers as an additional precaution to keep it locked in. Product brushes up against the bottom of my 2003 Lexus GX470’s rear bumper, but it’s not a huge deal since there’s a piece I can just pop off of the bumper.

Excellent hitch! Fit perfect! This my first trailer hitch install and it was very easy to do. Me and my 12 yearold daughter put the hitch in. I bench pressed it in place and my 12 yearold threaded the bolts! Piece of cake! Took no more than an hour max, and that included scrounging for tools..lol...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • Where are the Torque Specs for the Bolts on CURT Trailer Hitch 13445 for a Lexus GX470
    CURT provides the torque ratings for the bolts for hitch # 13445 in the installation instructions which I have linked for you. When installing the hitch on a 2003 to 2009 Lexus GX 470, make sure to follow the torque specs as indicated in the instructions. Applying too much torque can damage the hitch and vehicle. Too little and the hitch will not be properly secured.

  • Will The Curt 13445 Hitch Fit A 2008 Toyota 4Runner With Aftermarket Dual Exhaust?
    As the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13445 is designed to fit a 2008 Toyota 4Runner with stock exhaust, so I cannot say for sure if it will fit with a dual Borla exhaust system. However, this hitch will attach to the bottom of the frame and the cross-tube will measure the same as how inside the frame will. So if your exhaust system sits outside the frame of your 4Runner, there should not be any issue installing the hitch with it.

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for a Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500
    It is a little more complicated than just bolting the hitch onto a 2005 Chevy Silverado. The vehicle requires a combination of regular bolts to thread into weldnuts inside the truck frame (one on each side) and carriage bolts and blocks that will drop down from inside the frame rails so the threads are pointed down. To further complicate it, some aftermarket hitches reuse existing hardware on the truck and others use replacement hardware. What you need is the proper hardware kit for the...

    There are currently two hitches available for your 2009 Lexus GX 470, the Curt # 13445 and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75155. Both of these will use the cross bar that goes across the frame though, as there is not an area to mount something like the # 75685 on your frame, unfortunately. With that said, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75155 will meet the towing capacity of your GX 470 better and will be my suggestion to you. This hitch is rated to 6,000 pounds towing and 600 pounds of tongue weight...

    There is a trailer hitch that is a fit for your 2006 Lexus GX 470, but not the Curt # C13043, or one of that style. The best option is the Curt # 13445 which has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity, 5,000 lb towing capacity and is a complete no-drill install. This hitch is not the same design or style as the one you referenced, and instead is a round tube hitch.
