I have owned and used this hitch on my Chevrolet 3500 for a little over two years. I have never exceeded any weight limits for the hitch or the truck. Despite staying within rated limits, this hitch has developed a small bend on the left side between the two mounting bolts. I would advise against using this hitch if you tend to haul heavier loads on a regular basis. There are also several areas where the paint is chipping and surface rust has formed. I have pictures of this but they will not upload successfully.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. Most hitches over time will develop rust due to road debris. We do recommend touching up the hitch with a rust resistant paint from time to time for hitch maintenance.

I love the new hitch from Curt, a real improvement over the original factory receiver. It is much stronger, and even though it uses four of the same factory bolt attachment points, it also extends further up the frame where two more bolts attach through existing holes spreading the load over more of the truck frame. It arrived in perfect condition just a couple days after I ordered it and only took ten minutes to install. I would recommend this hitch to any one who is looking to upgrade or install one on a truck that didn't have a factory hitch receiver.

Hello, Im thinking about ordering this hitch for my 05 Silverado 3500 dually. Is your truck a 2500 or 3500 and do you have any additiona pics showing how you modified the trailer plug recepticle? Do you have any pics of it from straight behind the truck at knee level. How much lower does it hang then the factory tube hitch? Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you. Dan

Dan G, my truck is a 2500HD, but as you probably know, the frames are the same on 2500 and 3500 model GM trucks. Just the springs and sway bars are bigger on yours. You can email me directly at [email protected] and Ill send you more pictures. I also ordered a new trailer plug from E trailers. I bought my truck at auction and sadly it had been in an accident where it was rear ended, so I got it without a hitch or trailer plug receptacle, they had been damaged and removed by the body shop when the new bumper was installed. I really dont like the factory hitch because it relies on the bumper for additional strength, and because its bolted to the bumper the torque tube doesnt get to act like a spring. I ask a lot from my hitches, frequently towing in excess of 10,000lbs so I feel very confident with the high hitch rating of the curt. Hans

2001 GMC Sierra

Very well made. Excellent welds and fit was nice. No need to remove or even loosen the spare tire, there was plenty of room to operate. Receiver does sit approx. 2" higher than the factory hitch that I was replacing, but that was not an issue for me. Very happy with the hitch and peace of mind that Trailer will be secure as we travel down the highway. This hitch will carry ANYTHING I will ever hook to it.

Very satisfied. Good strong hitch. Peace of mind if worth every penny spent. This thing is plenty strong to do the job.

This is a great heavy duty hitch. It bolts on easy in existing holes. It did move my receiver height up from the factory hitch about 2”. I also had slight interference with my after market 5” exhaust but not a big deal. I would definitely recommend this hitch.

Chevrolet Silverado

This hitch reciever went on easily and....without a hitch! The factory reciever on my Silverado 3500 Dually literally cracked and twisted downward with far less than the rated maximum weight for the trailer. This new hitch installed in minutes with the help of a floor jack to hold one side up while I attached the other.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

We have a truck with virtually no rust one it. We were shocked when the factory hitch started to fail from corrosion where it attaches to the bumper. We were one bad bump away from catastrophe with the horse and trailer. The failure was such that we would have lost the safety chain connections also. Putting on the new hitch was very easy. We balanced the hitch on a floor jack and raised it in place. It bolted right in with almost no effort. Nothing to modify and no need to remove the spare tire or exhaust. Total installation time was about 20 minutes (taking the old hitch off took about 30 minutes and with the use of penetrating oil). This hitch design is exceptionally heavy and avoids attaching to the bumper where the rust formed on the factory hitch. We also added a new plug connector as the old one is part of the old hitch. With everything now being new, life is easier and less stressful.

Folks if you have a 99-07 Silverado or Sierra replace you factory hitch ASAP! I highly recommend this hitch. Installation could not be easier. Finish on curt hitch is very nice hopefully it will hold up well. One thing that could make it better would be an integrated trailer plug bracket. I had concerns of it hanging down lower than factory but it looks great

2004 Chevrolet Silverado

The first thing you notice when compared to the stock hitch is just how much beefier and better quality it is. It weighs a lot more and is made of a lot thicker steel. This thing is made to last! Installation was a breeze, had the old one off and the new Curt on in about a half HR (with air tools) no drilling uses all factory frame holes. I also purchased the 7way plug bracket which screws into the bumper with the provided self tapping screws. The stock hitch was rotted at the most vulnerable points I can't believe I towed a 10,000lb trailer last month with it, just thankful nothing catastrophic happened. Thank you etrailer for the great product, accurate description and fast shipping! I definitely recommend this hitch over the stock hitch on any 2500hd any day! Buy it, put it on, drink a beer to celebrate! Cheers

Very well built hitch and very easy to install. Lori was my sales person and was very knowledgeable and helpful with the purchase. Thank you for the excellent service.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado

Awesome hitch! Much better quality than the original. It was very easy to install on my 02 Silverado. If you have dual exhaust like I do you may need to modify depending where the pipes come out. Make sure to save the hardware you remove from the existing hitch. You will need a couple of the 14mm bolts.

- C15312

I have towed a 14k trailer with the hitch about 400 miles with no issues. It was pretty easy to install and has worked perfectly every time I have used it. The safety rings are pretty thick so you may need new chain clips.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic

Hitch fit perfect and is plenty heavy duty enough for the the trailers I pull up to 14k. Instructions were easy to understand and the hardware kit has some nifty installation tools to get into the frame.

- C15312

We only use etrailer - their products are great and easy to install. One time had to install on the ground with only ramps and hand tools - still easy to install.

- C15312

This hitch is very heavy duty and has held up great. Only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that it should come with an electrical plug mount like the factory hitch. Fixed problem by cutting off old one and welding it on. Not to big of deal for me but others may not have the ability.

Wanted a classV hitch, was not sure of class that was on truck .After comparing ,very glad I replaced the old with new. Very well built,and heavy duty,and easy install.

Works great, my installer said it is the best unit he has seen and was going to order several for more costomers that needed new hitches

- C15312

I appreciate the fast service competitive prices and easy to use website at etrailer. The hitch came fast and was very easy to install with no need to remove or even lower the spare and clears my aftermarket 4” exhaust. It fits up tight, has a better capacity and most of all it gives me peace of mind from worrying about the rusted oem.

- C15312

The installation of the Curt hitch went pretty smoothly on my pickup. We had a little trouble with alignment of some of the mounting holes, but with a little persuasion, the bolts went in. Getting the old bolts OUT was a different story!

2010 Chevrolet Silverado

Much heavier hitch than came with the truck. Bolted on with out any drilling. Took about a half house to take the old one off and install the new one.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado

i ordered this hitch on Monday night, it was at my door Wednesday after work...very fast shipping !!! this was ordered to replace the junk factory GM hitch on my 06 2500hd silverado....and what an upgrade, the curt hitch weighs at least twice as much and the quality is pretty apparent. i could not be happier with this product and the customer service here is unbelievable. i place an order on line and a human calls me to verify the order, and make sure the transaction went smoothly....unheard of today.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado

I could not be happier with this hitch. I installed it on a 2006 Silverado 2500hd. The quality and strength of this hitch is far superior to the one that came on the truck when I bought it in 2006. Installation was very simple. Hardest part was getting the old rusted bolts off, but air impact wrench took care of that. Also, Etrailer staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this hitch and have been recommending it to my friends. The attached pictures show the difference between the original hitch and the Curt hitch. On my next truck I won't wait to replace the hitch.

The hitch is great. I wish I had bought it sooner. So much better than OEM and perfect fit. Ive recommebded this hitch to several friends.

the hitch did not fit

I see that you have a 2004 Cheverolet Silverado. Can you please confirm what style of vehicle you have? This hitch is only a confirmed fit for the 2500 HD with an 8 Foot Bed and the 3500 pickup.

The old one off and new hitch on in 1 and a half hours. Everything lines up perfectly with the factory holes . As always I am very pleased with my purchase from etrailer. Thanks for the great service.

- C15312

Excellent fit for my 2007 chevy 2500hd (classic body style). Provides much better strength and durability over the stock hitch. I was towing 10k on a hitch that was only rated for 7k. If I had known that the stock hitch was that weak I would have done this a year ago. As far as intstall went it couldn't have been easier. Took myself 20 minutes to remove the old one and install this one. One tip if you are by yourself use a board and a floor jack to hold the new hitch up while you start the bolts.

- C15312

I have this hitch on three trucks. It fits tight under the bumper and is much stronger than the GM factory hitch which bends under the heavy loads we pull routinely.
