Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2003 Chevrolet Silverado - Curt

All right. Today on this 2003, Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to install part number C15703 from Curt. All right, this is what the hitch will look like once it's installed on the truck. Next we'll give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories, such as a ball mount, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 17-1/4". From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about 2-1/2". Now we'll go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the 14-Mike Manke bolts there at the very end of the frame. Now we'll keep these bolts because we'll need to reuse them to install the hitch. All right, next we'll go ahead and show you how the hardware works with the hitch. First off, our existing bolt and washer will go back in the same spot at the end of the frame, and the next hole going forward gets this bracket that gets installed onto the inside edge of the hitch, and gets installed with a carriage bolt and 2 flange nuts. Then the top part of that bracket will be underneath the frame, and then the carriage bolt and a block.

There's 2 different lengths of blocks. Now, for this fastener, it gets the shorter of the 2. And then our final fastener going towards the front of the truck will get the long block, a carriage bolt, and a flange nut. Now we showed you the driver's side. This would be identical on the passenger side. Okay, now is a good time to get an extra set of hands to help hold up the hitch, and we'll go ahead and install the original fasteners at the end of the frame.

Then we'll go ahead and install our bracket, where our next hole is going towards the front. We'll go ahead and line up the hole that matches with the frame, and then install the hardware. Now when we install all our hardware, we'll make sure it's all loose until we put in our final part. Now we'll go ahead and do our hardware that goes towards the front of the truck. A carriage bolt with a long block will go through the large hole.

Then we'll install our flange nut. This will be identical on the passenger side. We'll tighten down all our bolts, and then we'll torque them down as specified in the instructions. And with that, our hitch is already installed. And that will finish it for our install of part number C15703 from Curt, on our 2003 Chevrolet Silverado. .

Order arrived within 3 days of placing the order. The box was damaged upon arrival, and when initially opened I could not locate the hardware kit, or the wiring kit I had ordered at the same time. I e-mail customer service about the potential issue, and Judy M replied with instructions on where the items would be located in the box, Rebecca N also replied with a plan of action to get the replacements out to me. When I more closely inspected the contents, the hardware kit and the wiring kit were in the exact place Judy said that they would be. This is excellent customer service, and excellent loss prevention!!! Something this heavy will certainly receive damage to the box during shipment, and etrailer took precautions to eliminate the risk of loss. 170314

Had to replace the factory hitch on our 2001 3500 Silverado due to rust issues, it took about 15 minutes to impact the old bolts out, 5 minutes to open the box and get the new hardware situated, and about 10 minutes to hang the new hitch and put loctite on all the fasteners. about 45 minute complete job including getting tools out and putting away. We also have this same hitch on a 2005 2500HD and have zero complaints and it has been in service for 2 years. If we buy another truck without a hitch or need to replace one, this is the hitch that will be ordered and it will come from 358738

This is one duty receiver. One piece hitch with all hardware included. I installed in my driveway in 25minutes with only basic tools needed. Hangs about 4" lower than stock receiver but eliminated Need for drop hitch 234434

Truck: 2008 Chevrolet 3500 Crew Cab 4x4 Hitch fit perfectly. It does hang a little lower than factory hitch. I did not have to drill any holes, nor did I have to drop the spare tire. Packaging was damaged, but the hitch is very heavy (70lbs). Therefore they only way to really prevent any damage would be to put it on a pallet and that would increase shipping cost I'm sure. I am pleased with end result. 309265

Hangs a little lower than I had anticipated, but, now I won't need ab big of a drop hitch. all fasteners are carriage bolts so no fumbling with wrenches, just put on the loctite and tighten them down. Took about 35 minutes to install, (that includes getting tools out and putting them away) but it was helpful to have another set of hands to hold it in position. 215228

Folks this is a very beefy hitch , no dought it'll Handle just about anything ,18,000 pounds is a lot! I don't think there's that much steel in the rest of my truck combined. The workmanship is really good, you won't regret owning this hitch i've owned a lot of trucks and trailers and this is probably the best hitch I've ever seen 233422

MUCH better than the factory hitch. Towing a heavy 34' camper with a 1400# tongue weight is no problem for this hitch. The only problem I had was the need to replace the hooks on the safety chains to fit (old hooks too small). I have no problem recommending this hitch. 395121

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 Long Bed
  • I checked with Curt and they list trailer hitch # C15312 as a fit for a 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 or 3500, 8 foot bed with factory cutout bumper only. If your truck does not have the factory cutout bumper then I recommend # C15703 (2-1/2 inch receiver opening). If the truck has the 10 inch deep drop cowboy bumper then I recommend # C15313.

  • Will Installing Curt # C15703 on 2006 Silverado 2500HD Interfere with Larger than Stock Spare Tire
  • Curt does not have that measurement available, but you can determine this for yourself by taking some measurements from the underside of your truck. Using the diagram I edited for you, locate the weldnut that would serve as the rear-most attachment point for the hitch. From the center of this bolt hole, measure rearward toward the bumper six inches. From that point, measure forward to the closest point of the differential. If this distance is greater than the diameter of your spare tire,...

  • Distance from Bumper to Top of Curt Trailer Hitch C15703 on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15703 hangs pretty low on a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500. From the bottom of the bumper to the top of the hitch receiver it is approximately 4 inches. I have included a picture showing the gap. A similar hitch, # C15302, which also fits your truck is much tighter to the bumper with only a fraction of an inch of space between the bumper and receiver.

  • Fit of Class V Trailer Hitch for 2002 GMC Sierra 2500 HD
  • For a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500 HD, you'd want to use the Curt Class V hitch, part # C15703. I checked with Curt, and found that the drop of this hitch (measurement from the mounting flange to the top of the crossbar) is 5.13 inches, as shown in the photo I've provided. The # C15703 has a 2-1/2 by 2-1/2 receiver opening. According to Curt, their # C15323 Class V hitch you had asked about isn't a fit for the 2002 Sierra 2500 HD model, it's only a fit for the 1500 and the 2500 LD model. If...

  • Dimensions Of Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
  • I went to the warehouse and measured the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # C15703. I have attached a photo of the trailer hitch and have noted the dimensions you can check out. This is a Class V trailer hitch and it has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening.

  • Distance from Mounting Flanges to Crosstube of Curt Hitch # C15703

  • Distance from Mounting Flange to Receiver Tube on Hitches for 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
  • We have five Class V hitch options for the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD with 6-1/2 foot bed; all can be seen on the link provided. Several of these are TorkLift dual-receiver hitches that would almost surely NOT be compatible with your Tommy Gate so I have taken the requested measurement on the other three hitches from Curt and B&W. Note that Curt offers both 2-inch and 2-1/2-inch receivers for your truck. Part # C15302 is a 2-inch and part # C15703 is a 2-1/2-inch. The following...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with Reading Utility Body
  • Since you have that utility body the custom fit hitches for the 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will not work. What you will need is a weld-on hitch. I have included a link to the options for you. A hitch like # 15902 creates a drop of 10.865 inches from the truck frame. Installation should be performed by a qualified professional welder.

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for a 2004 GMC Sierra for Towing 5,500 lb Boat Trailer
  • First thing you will need to do is install a hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening like the Curt Hitch part # C15703 so that you can use a longer hitch extension that is going to have a decent amount of capacity. Then for a hitch extender the part # C45048 would be a great option as it has enough capacity and can be used to give 24 or 34 inches of extension.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The best trailer hitch for your 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 will vary depending on what you're going to use it for and possibly whether you have an 8 ft. or 6-1/2 ft. bed. If you need to haul a lot of weight I would suggest the Curt Class V CD 2-1/2" # C15703. This will get the most out of your truck for your dollar and will work with either length of truck beds. The Curt Class III # 13208 will also work with both bed lengths and would be more appropriate if you're not hauling as much weight. I...

  • Drop of Curt Class V Trailer Hitch # C15703 for 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic 3500
  • From the underside of the frame to the top of the crossbar tube would be 5.13 inches, and from the underside of the truck frame to the lowest point on the hitch, which is the bottom of the side plates, is 9.83 inches. You can see these dimensions on the photo I've edited for you. I've also linked to an install video for you.

  • Most of the Class V trailer hitches for your 2003 Chevy 3500 do not require drilling for installation. The most popular option is Curt hitch # C15312. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45341. For a 2-5/16 inch ball that will fit this ball mount use # 63840.

  • Dimension of Curt Class V Hitch for 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD with After Market Bumper
  • Good news, I was able to go out to our warehouse and measure the Curt Class V Hitch # C15703. This Class V Trailer Hitch has a dimension of almost 5 inches from the top of the bolt holes to the top opening of the receiver hitch opening. This should accommodate the space you require for your after market bumper. This Curt trailer hitch will fit both the 6-1/2 and 8 foot bed sizes of the 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD. I have linked an install video of the Curt hitch for your convenience.

  • 2-1/2 Inch Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6.0, 5-Speed, 14 Bolt Rear End
  • The 2000 model year was a split model year for GM trucks (actually it started for the 1999 model year but continued until about 2002). This is when they went from being C or K series to being badged as Silverados/Sierras. So the issue with filters and whatnot may have stemmed from that. So for a 2000 there were both C/K series and Silverados. To make things more confusing Silverado was a trim on the C/K series trucks. So it is possible you have a 2000 C or K series 2500HD with the Silverado...

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Hitch to Fit a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 6-1/2 Ft. Bed
  • Both of the Curt hitches that you listed are confirmed to fit your 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. The difference between the two can been seen in these hitches' features. The Curt Class V Hitch # C15302 that uses the 2 inch receiver opening, is the hitch that I recommend. The 2 inch opening is the more common size for use of a hitch accessory. If you wan to use the hitch for this application, then you will have a wider selection of accessories that will fit this hitch/. This hitch...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with 2-1/2 inch Hitch Opening
  • For your 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500HD you would want the Curt hitch part # C15703 as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and has a 2-1/2 inch hitch opening like you said you were interested in. I attached a install video plus a link to a page that has all of the ball mounts we carry that would fit the hitch. You would want to first determine the amount of rise/drop you would need to tow your trailer level and then select it from the filters on the link.

  • Can Longer Hitch Extender be Used on a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch on your 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD like the Curt hitch part # C15703 then you could use a Titan hitch extender like the part # RP45292 if you used it in the 24 inch length and used a weight distribution system since a WD system gives the extender a higher towing capacity of 8,000 lbs instead of 6,000 lbs. For a weight distribution system the part # RP66084 would be a great option. It has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs and features only sway control...

  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V CD - 2-1/2" # C15703 for your 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD does not come with any adapters. It sounds like you are interested in a reducer like the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" # C45405. This will allow you to use 2 inch accessories with your 2-1/2 inch receiver.

  • For a hitch extension that long you'd have to have a 2-1/2 inch hitch installed on your 2005 GMC Sierra 2500 like the Curt part # C15703 which is a confirmed fit. Once that's installed you'd be able to use a longer extension like the part # RP45018 which measures 48 inches in length.
