Fast and easy order and fast and ez install too, you guys are the best!
Our Nissan got hit in the back and the trailer hitch was bent. The rear bumper wasn't damaged at all. I have included pictures of the previously purchased (etrailer) bent trailer hitch and the trailer light wiring install too.

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

The front facing bolt hole on the passenger side took some convincing to line up. Also, there was no packing material for the hitch itself so the sharp edges tore up the box during transport. I am disappointed that the hitch is resting on the tailpipe pushing it up and offers no clearance. I will have to go to a exhaust shop to try to heat the tailpipe to bend it down or cut off the tailpipe and have it welded at at different angle.

However, I do like how this hitch bolts onto the three frame rail holes and think the design is better than the other competitors. The offerings from Hidden Hitch and Drawtite use L-shaped metal brackets that bolt to the bumper bracket (see picture) and only use one frame rail hole, which I don't feel is as strong. The Curt hitch is the only one that offers a specific part number for crew cabs. The Drawtite and Hidden Hitch list the same part numbers for crew cabs, regular cabs, and king cabs.

Nissan Frontier

Installed easily on an old Nissan Frontier. Has pulled both boats and stumps!
Wish it had a light plug mount point, but no complaints.

Hitch has survived another year of neglect and frozensalty Michigan winters. Theres some of rust, but Ive owned hitches for 50 years and none have escaped that. Holding up as good or better than most. Its on a 2000 Frontier crew cab and at this point its likely stronger than the frame its bolted to. lol

The hitch is fine. I had a problem where one of the mounting plates had an imperfection in the threads where metal was melted and therefore rendered it impossible for me to thread the bolt through. They sent me a new mounting plate and a new bolt and it arrived quickly, just wish I didn’t have to get underneath my truck on two separate occasions. They sent me a new plate and this one in-fact had some metal melted into the thread… but… it was smaller and I was able to scrape it out. So they could improve their QC! Otherwise the hitch is fine. I’ll change review to 5 star if they promise to do better QC for future customers!!

I made the manufacturer aware of this issue and they will check their inventory.

Sales rep. was very helpful and knowledgeable about the equipment. Shipping came very quickly. Haven't installed the hitch yet but I am very satisfied with the rep and the purchase so far!


my order arrived two days early with everything I ordered, just as advertised.

2002 Nissan Frontier

2002 Nissan frontier xe 3.3l. fits perfectly like a pair of gloves. And The wiring harness also.


trailer hitch receiver purchase worked out well despite a couple of shipping issues that customer service handled professionally.


Exact fit simple installation!

2015 Nissan Frontier

Bolted right up to my 2000 Frontier 4-door Crew Cab. No issues whatsoever. Mounting hardware was clean and sturdy. Good quality bolts and hitch. It took me 15 minutes to do it by myself in a parking lot at my apartment. 2 people would have been easier but not necessary if you're handy.

After a year, this hitch has been used many times for a large steel bike rack 4 mountain bikes at a time, towing cars, off-road recovery, etc. I havent been nice to it but I also had any issues with it. I have dragged it over rocks and backed it into a couple concrete walls as well. I trust it completely.

This product installed very easily onto my 2001 Nissan Frontier. Also the customer service of was exceptional. My order was processed quickly and the product I ordered arrived very quickly.

2000 Nissan Frontier

This fits great! It only takes about 15 minutes to install. I bought it to use a dirtbike carrier from the hitch. It holds it easily!

Great value! No issues!

2003 Nissan Frontier

Quick delivery. Good quality product. Perfect fit when I ordered the correct one. I went from an 8' long bed, full sized pickup to a 5.xx long bed Frontier. I had bought the truck used and thought it was a short bed. (I mean it was almost 3' shorter than my full size long bed) I ordered the short bed hitch, which was not a perfect fit because it was not for my truck. Once we figured out my mistake, etrailer worked with me to return the incorrect hitch for the correct one. As I said. Perfect fit. Only issue I had was that the tailpipe was rubbing/clanking on the new hitch. I talked to erailer about it and they sent me info on why this was, and how to fix it. All I had to do was to flip the tailpipe hanger upside down, as the mounting bolts on it are offset. 2 easy to access bolts, and it took maybe 5 minutes to remedy that. Thank you etrailer for your great customer service! Highly recommend.

2001 Nissan Frontier

This is the second hitch and wiring package I have purchased from Shipping was very quick and item arrived undamaged. This hitch was easy, quick to install and included new frame bolts. Total install time was seventeen minutes. Very happy with these hitches. Recommended to all my friends needed a hitch. A+ customer service.

2003 Nissan Frontier

I made a wooden jig to hold up hitch and rasied with a floor jack....worked great tail pipe was in the way, i cut just after the curve and shorten it 2 " than revered it and fasten it with muffler clap

Thanks for the follow up John. I did want to let you know that I checked with Curt and they do not have any notes of any interference with the exhaust or tailpipe of your Frontier. I am glad that you were able to make it work, but also wanted to let you know that sometimes if there is an issue with exhaust clearance the exhaust hangers can usually be slightly bent to allow the hitch to be installed. I have include a link to one of our help articles for your reference.

I read other reviews that had the same problem with the exhaust ...thats how I took care it

2003 Nissan Frontier

eTrailer website is fast and easy - and ensures you're ordering the right product for your particular vehicle. Order was fulfilled immediately, with tracking information supported by a map to show shipping progress (that was really cool). My hitch receiver came in right on time and was a super-smooth install.
This is one of the best online companies out there; I HIGHLY recommend eTrailer!

2001 Nissan Frontier

The hitch came as described and with all of the necessary mounting hardware. It went on quickly as described and without any hassle. This is my 2nd Curt hitch and I am very pleased with their products.

2004 Nissan Frontier

Great fit used ATV jack to set it in place only issue was exhaust pipe had to be relocated. The wiring harness plugged up and worked perfectly. Total installation time was 30 minutes.

2002 Nissan Frontier

The quality is great! The install was a little tricky because my muffler on my 02 Frontier got in the way. Luckily, I had a mechanic friend who got creative to help me install the hitch and also find a solution to not have the muffler touch the hitch.

2000 Nissan Frontier

Worked on my 2000 Frontier with ease.

2004 Nissan Frontier

Hitch looks great and was very simple to install. I didn't have any problems, and for someone that is not very mechanically inclined, such as myself, it only took a few minutes to get it installed. Great product, I would definitely not hesitate to do business with etrailer again, and will do so in the future.

2002 Nissan Frontier

I bought two hitches and both were exactly what I ordered, fit perfect and were delivered very quickly. Great prices too!

2003 Nissan Frontier

Product was packed correct . Design was awesome . Took my husband an hour to install . But had a few washer's missing . But he managed to find washers to complete the install . But we're happy with the purchase and design . It fit perfect on our 03 frontier XE


product was exactly as advertised and bolted right up truck frame, took 30 minutes to install with a air impact, Best price and delivery I could find on the internet and well worth it.

2000 Nissan Frontier

Quick and easy ordering - Great Delivery, had exactly what i was looking for, and for my future trailer hitch needs, will be sure to order from Picture coming soon.

  • How Does the Install Bolts of the Curt Hitch # 13841 Attach the Hitch to 2000 Nissan Frontier
    When you install the Curt Hitch part # 13841 on your 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab you will use the included nut plate for the install bolts to install. The fact that the hole of your frame is larger than needed would not matter. You will want to verify that you have found the correct install hole to use though.

  • How to Keep Exhaust Pipe from Rubbing Against Curt Trailer Hitch # 13841 on a 2004 Nissan Frontier
    My contact at Curt said that you will need to manipulate your exhaust to fit around the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13841. This can be accomplished by either bending the hangers that are holding your exhaust or possibly getting longer hangers.

  • Which Curt Hitch Fits 2004 Nissan Frontier
    We do have Curt hitches that fit your 2004 Nissan Frontier but the 13900 is not one of them. Instead you'd want the # 13841 for if you have a short bed or the # 13842 for if you have a long bed. I confirmed with Curt these fit your truck and do not require any drilling.

  • Can Front Mount Hitch Also Be Installed at the Rear on 2004 Nissan Frontier
    There actually is not a front mount hitch available that is designed to fit your 2004 Nissan Frontier. The Draw-Tite Front Hitch # 65082 that you referenced is designed for the 2019 Chevy Silverado and it will not fit the frame of your Frontier. Because these are custom hitches they are designed to line up to existing holes in a vehicle's frame (along with making sure they fit under the bumper, avoid factory components, etc) so even if there was a front hitch available for your truck...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2001 Nissan Frontier 2-Door King Cab Long Bed
    Curt trailer hitch # 13841 is listed as a fit for the 4-door 2000 to 2004 Nissan Frontiers only. For your 2001 Nissan Frontier 2-door long bed you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75186. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and storage bag. For trailer wiring you can use harness # 118362. I have included a link to the...

  • What Curt Hitch Is Recommended for a 2000 Nissan Frontier with 2-Doors
    It looks like you ordered the wrong hitch, the Curt Hitch part # 13841 that you referenced is designed to work on only the 4 door model 2000 Nissan Frontiers. You should have ordered the Curt Hitch part # 13831 as it is designed for the 2 door models since you said you have an extended cab. That would explain why the mounting holes aren't lining up. I attached an install video for the # 13831. To complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the Ball Mount kit...

    We have a few trailer hitches that will work for your 2003 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner. From my research I found that the Desert runner is a King Cab with a short bed. If your truck is a different model just let me know and I will make recommendations that will work for you. For a King Cab I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13831. This is a Class lll hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a link to an installation video you can check out. If you have the Crew...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Trailer Wiring For a 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab Truck
    For your 2000 Nissan Frontier crew cab, you will need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13841. The Receiver # 13831 only fits the regular cab and king cab as they use different mounting locations. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118362 will provide you with a 4-way flat connector. This will operate the lights on most small trailers. If you will be towing larger trailers with electric brakes or a charge line you will need the Installation Kit # ETBC7.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2001 Nissan Frontier
    Curt, Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite all offer hitches for your Frontier. All three hitches share a similar design and would install in the same manner. Due to the fact that the Curt # 13841 has a slightly higher rating (500 lb Tongue Weight/5000 lbs towing, versus 400 lb Tongue weight/4000 lbs towing) of the other two, as well as having a lower price, I'd recommend the Curt hitch. Curt makes a great product, so you won't sacrifice anything by going with the lower cost hitch. Keep in mind...
