I plan to use this for a cargo carrier, but I haven't yet. But I can review the installation and fit. The installation is NO JOKE. The directions are confusing and vague. You must have all the proper tools - a good strong drill, deep sockets & wrench, crescent wrenches & we also had an impact driver, and the pull tool to get the black plastic buttons off without breaking them. "Fishwiring" the bolts in to place is difficult (it's actually impossible as the wire isn't long enough). We did not use the enclosed wire because it was ineffective. We duct taped the bolts to the rectangular washers & used teamwork, a flashlight, and a magnet to pull the bolts up through the holes. This is probably the most frustrating and time consuming part of the whole project. It took about 3 hours total. In the 4th & 5th picture you can see the "white plastic clip" in step #2 that holds the bumper fascia on. We had to lift the fascia up to remove it from the top of the clip, it does not rotate at all. In the 7th picture you can see the two tabs where you remove the tailights in step 2. It wasn't easy to guess what they meant, but we figured this must be them. I tried to take more pics but the wonderful man who did this was not waiting for me to take the perfect shot! Can't argue with him. In the directions, the aluminum bumper beam (step 6) and bumper reinforcement (step 7) are the same thing - not sure why they call it two different things. (See 3rd picture). I hope this will help make it easier for the next person who installs this hitch. It looks great on the car and I can't wait to use it and finally have a place to put a cooler in my little coupe! :) 662098

Costly for the amount of metal involved. Disappointed in the instructions (no video avail), and the fact that they didn't even include a rubber hitch cover (plug) with the order. 182019

This is a good hitch. Works as it's suppose to. It could have been better if they didn't reuse a tube with a hole or cut off the hole so it can be welded better and looks much better. The installation was not easy. Couldn't understand some parts of the instructions without any pictures or diagrams. Much easier if you have a helper. 139895

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2012 Infiniti G37
  • For the coupe version of your 2012 Infiniti G37 we have the Curt hitch part # C11493 which is a confirmed fit that would work well. The other hitch you mentioned would not work for you since it won't fit the coupe models. As long as your T2 is the version designed for the 1-1/4 inch hitch size it would work well with this hitch. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video...

  • Is There Fascia Trimming Required to Install a Curt Hitch on a 2005 Nissan 350Z
  • Yes, there will be some rear fascia trimming required to install the correct hitch for your 2005 Nissan 350Z, Curt Hitch part # 11483. Check out the picture I attached to see what the trimming will look like. I also attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also. The Curt Hitch # 11493 that you referenced is designed for the 2006 Nissan 350Z and would not work for your 2005 model. For the record it requires fascia trimming as well.

  • Fit of Curt C11493 Class I Trailer Hitch on 2012 Infiniti G37XS AWD Sport Coupe
  • According to my Curt representative, their # C11493 is a fit for all models of the 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe, including your G37XS coupe AWD Sport. Per stipulations in Curt's warranty, a stabilizing strap like # 18050 must be used for all non-trailer loads like bike racks and cargo carriers. If you click the provided link, you can see the installation instructions.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2012 Infiniti G37
  • A hitch bike rack is a great option to carry up to 2 bikes on your 2012 Infiniti G37. One of my favorite hitch mount bike racks and the one that I recommend for you is the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack # HR200Z. The Trail Rider can carry 2 bikes with maximum wheel bases of 60 inches, tires up to 3 inches, and up to 45 pounds per bike. This hitch mount platform bike rack will fit both 1-1/4 inch, Class I and Class II hitches, as well as 2 inch trailer hitches. To help the bike...

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required on 2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe to Install Curt Trailer Hitch
  • There is some trimming required on the 2010 Infiniti G37 coupe to install Curt trailer hitch # C11493. There is an area approximately 1-3/4 inches by 2 inches that will need to be trimmed off the bumper fascia. I have included a picture that shows the hitch installed on a vehicle and the area that gets trimmed. If you plan on doing some towing first check the vehicle owners manual for its capacities. The recommended ball mount is # C45521 and use # F-4 for the pin and cip. For a 1-7/8...

  • Recommended Hitch and Rated Towing Capacity for 2008 G37 Coupe
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24831 that you referenced fits the sedan version of the 2008 Infiniti G37 but not your coupe, however we do have a comparable hitch for your car. Curt Class I hitch # C11493 is a confirmed fit for your 2008 G37 Coupe. This hitch has a 150-lb tongue weight (TW) capacity and a 1500-lb gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity. It is possible that your G37 carries different weight ratings so you'll want to check your owner's manual or with your local dealership...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation with Best Ground Clearance for a 2012 Infiniti G37X
  • Since your 2012 Infiniti G37X sits relatively low to the ground it would be beneficial to have a bike rack that has a rise in the shank. First, if you do not already have a trailer hitch, I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24831 for a sedan, # C11493 for a coupe, or # C11068 for a convertible. These are all Class I hitches which means you will need a bike rack that is compatible with a Class I hitch. You are also limited to 2 bikes maximum. And with either of the Curt hitches Curt also says...

  • Will The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11493, Fit A 2006 Nissan 350Z Coupe Or Convertible
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11493, will only fit the 2006 Nissan Coupe. I called the supplier (Curt) and they said it will not fit the convertible. The hitch attaches to the vehicles aluminum bumper beam and the convertible is not designed to handle any extra load put on the bumper beam. The hitch comes with a ball mount and pin and clip. You will need a hitch ball, and that size will depend on what size coupler is on the trailer. If the coupler is 1-7/8 inches, you will need the Curt...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Infiniti Q60
  • Any time you use a hitch adapter like the part # HTAD you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half. A Class I hitch has a pretty low capacity like the part # C11493 which has a 150 lb capacity, so when you cut that in half you don't have much capacity left for carrier and cargo. Instead you would be better of getting a cargo carrier that wouldn't require an adapter like the Surco Carrier part # 52017.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2009 Infiniti G37
  • There are 3 different trailer hitch options that will fit your 2009 Infiniti G37 and it all depends on what model you have: Sedan - # C11499 Coupe - # C11493 Convertible - # C11068 Please note that Curt says you need to use the stabilizer strap # 18050 for any non-trailer loads like a bike rack. If you don't already have a bike rack then I highly recommend using the Kuat Beta # B202-114 because it gives you a great bike rack at a great price. This bike rack has an aluminum frame...

  • Trailer Hitch and Kayak Trailer Recommendation for 2006 Nissan 350Z
  • We have one solution that would work well but it's a bit pricey so I will warn you on that. The only way you'll be able to transport two kayaks with your 2006 Nissan 350Z is going to be with a hitch like the Curt part # C11493 and a kayak trailer like the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG461G2. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # C59236 and then for a ball mount part # C45521 and a hitch ball # A-82.
