Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Today on our 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Draw-Tite max frame custom fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver. It offers the 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening, it's part number is 76046. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see something I like about this hitch, our cross tube stays pretty hidden up behind the fascia. That's different than what we've seen from some of the other hitches. Whereas that's going to come over here to our receiver tube opening, this is 2 inch by 2 inches. Reinforcement collar around in there looks nice and neat.

Got our safety chain connection points that come out here. We've got oval shaped openings that kind of run along in line with the vehicle. Then it should be plenty of room there for you to connect whatever style chain you might want to. See in this hitch there are 2 holes in the receiver tube itself. The one closest to the front of the vehicle is the one that we're going to use to secure all of our items with. That's five eighths of an inch in diameter and you'll see there's plenty of room there even if you wanted to use a locking hitch pin or anti rattle device.

Now one of those anti rattle devices available is called J Pin stabilization system. That's the only time we use that hole closest to the rear. You'll want to ensure anything you do use in you five eighths hole is rated for class 3 use. Now a class 3 hitch is an extremely versatile hitch. It's going to work out for cargo carriers, for bike racks, hauling trailers, whatever you might want to use it for there should be an application available in class 3. Now the hitch offers a tongue weight rating of 675 pounds, that would be the maximum downward force that we would put here at the receiver tube opening.

It's going to offer a 4,500 pound gross trailer weight rating. That would be the total weight of your trailer and anything you we're to load up on it. It is rated for use for weight distribution. The tongue weight's going to stay the same at 675 pounds. The gross trailer weight however it goes up to 5,000 pounds.

You will want to consult the owners manual on the Pacifica, figure out what it's tow rating is and use whichever numbers are the lowest. You'll see the Draw-Tite also has a bracket that's been welded onto it already for attachment of wiring. They have 3 pre-drilled holes so you can use a couple different brackets we've got here whether you're using a 7 poles or a 4 pole and get that connected there without having to purchase additional brackets to go around the hitch. Now a few measurements that'll be helpful in selecting you ball mount rack or hitch cargo carrier will be from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of our bummer, it's about 4 and a half inches. Then from the ground to the inside top edge of a receiver tube opening, we've got about 12 and a half. That being the case we do recommend choosing accessories that have a rise in the shank just to promote better ground clearance at the rear of whatever accessory you have loaded up. Now to begin our installation we need to get this exhaust lowered down and out of the way a little bit. We've got three hangers that we'll use to do that. It's going one located right here inside the tail pipe area. It's a good idea to spray these down with a little bit of spray lubricant there. Usually helps those slide off better and we bring the tail pipe forward here. It's going to be one in this flat spot. We may or may not need to remove the one located right over here. Now before we do drop those, we'll want to put a strap underneath it just to give that exhaust some support, like that. Then we've got to pry bar here, you could also use a large screw driver. Just want to get those kind of pushed off this end there. Then we'll just put a little bit of slack in the strap there. That'll allow that to come down where we can get some tools in here and work. Next thing we're going to do is get our heat shield removed so we can trim it and put it back into position. See we've got the 4 plastic nuts. The white one's going to be above the exhaust, just made to handle a little higher temperature. We've got one, two, three, and four connection points. Then you'll just pull down. Now in the instructions it's going to tell us measure down 13 inches. It's going to put us about right above this hole and then measure in 5 and cut it. But that's a really tough cut to make, might risk cutting your finger. What we're going to do is cut straight across at 13 inches and we're not losing any protection with that. Now the texture of the heat shield itself, there's a little dimples there and those create a pretty straight line so we'll just go right across those. We'll come up just above that connection point there. Now you can use aviation sheers to cut this. You can use a little cut off wheel, whatever you've got handy. Now we can set this portion aside and we'll get this portion reinstalled. Now it's time to get our hardware put in position. We've got 3 attachment points on each side. We're going to be using the oblong hole that's here closest to the rear. You got the rectangular shaped hole there then the square hole there. Now for the rear holes we're going to use the smaller of the square hole spacers. For the one closest to the front we'll be using the longer one. Now to get our hardware into position we're going to be using the pull wire. We'll just place that in the hole, direct it forward to that furthest forward attachment point that's going to be our access hole. Just going to slide on one of the spacers. Thread on one of the carriage bolts. We'll slide those in separately. Pull them back just like that. Now for the forward attachment point we want to use the reverse method so we'll put our block on then thread on our carriage bolt. We'll put the bolt in first. Follow that up with the block then bring it right back down through. Now we're going to do the same thing for the passenger side. Right now we've got our pull wires attached here to our bolts still. You can leave those on, put them through the appropriate holes in the hitch and then use these to guide it up into place. I find it's easier to do it without them. Simply because then we don't have to try to hold the hitch up and remove the pull wire. But it's up to you. If you're going to do it this way you definitely don't want to push the bolts back up into the frame. Now with the help with an extra set of hands. We'll want to get the passenger side started up over the exhaust first. Then we'll raise the drivers side up into position. When our carriages bolts to come down through. The first thing we'll do is place on a conical tooth washer and want to make sure the teeth of that face up towards our hitch. Then we can thread one the hex nuts. Be sure we get one started with about 3 or 4 good turns. We can let it rest there while we get the other side going. Now we'll go through and snug down our hardware. Now with everything snugged down it's time to go through and torque each of our bolts down to the appropriate specifications. Those are listed in the instructions. Now we use a little bit more spray lubricant and we'll get our exhaust lifted back up into position and slide these isolators back in place. Then we can take down the strap and our hitch will be ready for use. With our exhaust back in position that's going to complete our installation of the Draw-Tite max frame custom fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver. Part number 76046 on our 2017 Chrysler Pacfica.

This isn't the first time I've done business with etrailer.com, and certainly won't be the last! Bought to 2" hitches for the SUV and the minivan, and both are QUALITY. Installed in under 30 minutes, and bound to last a lifetime. Great products, great price...I highly recommend, especially versus some of the other installers. Got a buddy that's a mechanic (or handy with the tools)? Buy here, take there, and BLAM...save $100 or more!!! 382298

PACKAGING WAS TERRIBLE. BOX CAME OPEN ON THE END AND BOTTOM. IF THE BOLTS WERE NOT TAPED TO THE HITCH THEY WOULD BE GONE. THE HITCH WAS OVER HALF OUT OF THE BOX. DIRECTIONS WERE NOT AS NEEDED FOR THE INSTALL 608154


Comments

Were sorry to hear that the box the hitch was packed in was in bad shape when it arrived to you. If you click on the link Ive provided, you can see a video showing the hitch being installed on a 2017 Pacifica. I hope the video is helpful for you.

Trailer hitch and wiring harness came quickly and in good order. Hitch fit car perfectly. However, the wiring harness connectors would not fit through the body panel because of internal supports and tail light wires, so I had to cut it and splice it under the car. Harness needs to be redesigned to fit through the small channel under the tail lights. Connectors were far too big to be pulled through. 498463

I installed this hitch with help from my mechanic. You can do it alone but much easier to have someone hold it in place while you thread the bolts. I deliver auto parts with my Pacifica so in the year I've had the hitch on it, I've put 130,000 miles on it and lots of rock salt here in western PA. Surprisingly there is very little surface rust on the hitch. This is my second hitch from etrailer and probably not the last. 476540

Fit was good and kit was required. Fishing technique to get the screws through was easy and the online video made things much easier. Noticed that upon install, hitch looks to be angled down more than expected, had to buy riser to bring up 6 inches. 525669

WOW what can I say..... I was trying to figure out what the exact hitch I needed for my 2017 Pacifica. My search took me directly to etrailer where I found a video showing my car, even the same color and the correct hitch. A few clicks later the hitch and lighting package was on its way at a very competitive price! In just a few days it arrived and it is a beauty. We will install it and be ready for my new trailer. Thanks a big bunch 469530

Perfect fit, install video was dead on and super helpful. Fits great up in the bumper so the look is very nice and OEM like from the back. Was able to install this without lifting or even jacking up the van. A pair of Jack stands will make installing this by yourself a bit easier. Very happy overall. 603907

I ordered a towing hitch and wire harness for my 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Etrailer was the only website that had it in stock because of how new the product was. Product arrived in a timely manner without shipping charge. Well worth the money I spent. I wouldn't recommend that a lay person attempt to install as It took my mechanic 3 hours. The hitch itself was easy but hooking up the wiring was very time taking as you must take a lot of the under bladder off to run a wire to the battery. Also not much room to make connections to rear taillight. 293796

Very good looking/high quality hitch. Video was extremely helpful, and fishing the hardware thru the frame is a easy as it looks. Definitely have a second set of hands to help mount the hitch and align all the hardware. As other have mentioned, trimming the under body panel was not in the video and I cut significantly less of the panel than the instructions show. I installed this on a Limited with the hands free tailgate. I re-mounted the sensor toward the drivers side so it's not blocked by the hitch tongue. Chrysler sells a bracket to do this (68275630AG) which also adds another sensor so you can kick on either side of the tongue, but that was over a hundred bucks - no thanks! 550784

Hitch looks good on car not a lot hanging down, just sq. tube. As for instructions I would add removal of Left rear wheel to get at 3 bolts holding on shield makes it easier. 336378

I don't consider myself a mechanic and looked at the 45 minute completion as not probable. The instructions were clear with figures appropriate. There were some discrepancies between the description and the actual look of the underneath. An number order for removal of screws and nuts would be helpful. Process took me about 3 hours but that accounts for picking up some tools after I had already begun. I didn't have a lift or ramps so used my driveway slant with a couple of 4x4 boards to lift the back of the car. All in all the threading of the wires went easier than anticipated particularly since the bend of the wire from shipping in the bag created a natural flow for the tip to reach the holes. 508028

Mostly the hitch is positive. The spacing between the end mounting brackets is to narrow. There is extra round tube on left side to allow for a different position before welding. A quart inch may be enough to get a better fit. I made cuts to accommodate the projections. The large cut out suggested seemed to course. All factory hardware was retained. The heat shield needed a small area of the rear corner to be trimmed. 666877

The hitch arrived just one day after ordering. Amazing service! It's exactly as described. I like that the cross tube is hidden. It will be primarily used it for a bike rack. I had it installed by a professional, and it all went well for them. They appreciated the clear instructions (the downloaded pdf file, not the sheet in the hardware pack) and the installation video as it was the first Chrysler Pacifica they had done. This is the second hitch that I purchased from etrailer.com. They are a good company to do business with. 573137

This is my 2nd hitch install, the last one being on my Elantra Hatch. It took me 3 hours to install. I installed the hitch in my driveway. I did not use a lift or ramps. There was enough ground clearance for me to reach everything under the car. Pros - This is a very heavy duty hitch. You can tell the build quality is great and its quite heavy. - The bolts and nuts that come with this hitch are some of the best I have ever used. The nuts screw on very easily. This is surprisingly very rare for bolts from the big box stores. - The video from etrailer is great, I am not sure I would have been able to install this without it. I watched it multiple times during my install. Cons - and this the 4 stars are all based on how difficult this is to install. None of which is the hitch's or etrailers fault. 1. You have to remove plastic under body panel on the Pacifica which is not in the video but is in the instructions. As other reviews have stated there are 3 screws hidden behind the driver rear tire that are very hard to get to. 2. Dropping the exhaust still made it very hard to access that side. 3. The instructions are basically worthless, but etrailer makes up for that with the video. 375964

Excellent hitch for the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. Easy to install and it rides high under the bumper giving a nice finished look. The hitch was delivered two days after ordering. Etrailer continues their history of great service. 517702

Very solid construction especially on the weld points. The hitch barely noticeable from the back end of the vehicle which makes it seem like its not there (nice). Good anchor points for chains and I love the wire harness mount in case I decide to wire through there. Installation was sort of a pain because the video doesn't go over removal of the undercarriage protector and cutting that. However, the instructions did a good job of giving you cutting dimensions. I spent 1.5 hours doing this alone due to the cutting involved. If you are installing alone, use some jack stands to hold up hitch while you get it onto your bolts. A battery powered impact driver or ratchet go a long way. finger tighten first then hit it with the power tool. 439077

Absolutely love the quality, the clean look, and the ease of installation that this hitch has. Many other people in this review forum are complaining about that the install video for this specific piece 76046, didn’t review how to get the initial panel off, or how to cut it. #1, the instructions include information regarding this, so read them. #2 it’s a matter of removing some screws, not terribly difficult. However, the install video for the product 36798 contains every step of taking the panel off. So check that out!! That is just a different hitch for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. I had myself and one other person help for the instal. Everything from removal of the first screw to putting the final screw back on during install took just over an hour and a half. Would have taken longer without the extra set of hands. The video was more than enough to be able to do the install yourself. Don’t waste time or money having somebody else install for you. I did it in my driveway and have VERY limited experience working on cars. Couldn’t be happier with this product. Shipping was fast. Didn’t get the electronics as I need the hitch for bike and extra cargo racks. Glad this hitch comes with the mount and option of getting electronics later if needed. 552638

Great product, fast shipping, good price. 2h to install, worst part of install was sound dampening panel under van, otherwise very straight fwd. Great video on etrailer to guide install. Customer pics to modify panel much less then recommended was great and allowed minimal modifications. 2018 Pacifica touring S. Nice and low profile receiver that sticks tight under bumper and blends well. 568755

The video available from eTrailer was very helpful in understanding how to install the hitch on my 2017 Pacifica. While the instruction document included information on removing & cutting the underbody panel, there was no mention of it in the video. Using a floor jack, and a little help from a second person, I installed the hitch on my vehicle in my garage in around 3 hours. After removing the underbody panel, and working with the hitch, I found that I didn't have to cut the heat shield as much as identified in the instruction (and referred to in the video), and I significantly reduced the amount of the underbody panel that I cut out (maybe just a third of what the instructions indicate) which meant I only cut out one of the fasteners in the underbody. In case this is helpful for anyone else, I've included pictures of the changes I made). 541302

IF you have a lift to get vehicle in the air, not a bad job. Instructions are decent. IF you are lying on the floor, working on your back it sucks. But I got it done and it looks and works great. Installation a little tough for the average homeowner! 720979

Let me begin by saying I'm cheap. I've installed hitches from etrailer before; they're reasonably priced, promptly shipped, and well supported, both by customer service and their generally excellent videos. So when Chrysler priced their hitch for this car at about $1k, and etrailer had a class III hitch for about $120, I eshewed FCA's hitch. To mixed results. First, delivery from etrailer was super quick, as usual. Fit and finish on the hitch were perfect. Guided by the two videos on the etrailer site - one for this hitch as well as the one for the similar draw-tite - the installation went more easily than expected. Because the Limited version of the Pacifica has a finishing panel from the rear axle to the rear bumper which had to be trimmed, the draw-tite video provided better guidance for this version. However, as several have already mentioned, I found that considerably less of that under panel had to be removed to make room for the Curt hitch. And along the same lines, considerably less of the heat shield was removed - I've included a pic of what I removed for this installation. I don't tow; I like to take a bike carrier as well as a cargo carrier on occasion, so I can't comment on how the car handles a towing load. Others have commented that it does well. The installed Curt hitch is almost invisible from most angles; all that can be seen is the receiver itself. There is some loss of rear clearance - I broke my receiver cover on the first driveway I encountered. The only significant (really?) problem is that my rear hatch used to have foot control - kick under the tailgate and it would open. Not imperative, obviously, but a nice feature. The hitch made that foot control inoperative. On the factory installed hitch, FCA changes the single foot sensor for two sensors mounted lower and to either side of the receiver. Some other posts indicate that the foot sensor still operates with the aftermarket hitch installed; this has not been my experience, and is my major qualm with this install. I LOVED saving over $800 by using this hitch; it installed easily, functions well, and was inexpensive. But if I had it to do over again, I'd order the OEM hitch. 717652

Works well. Kind of tough to install due to the underbody panels, but that’s not the hitches fault. Tucks ip nice and looks very factory. 674571

I just installed this on a 2018 Chrysler Pacific, by myself. I used the ramps, I use to change the oil in my cars, to get plenty of clearance. The written directions are not worth reading, but the videos that etrailer provide are great. Everything fit and worked out just like the video showed. I believe this is a great product. 669888

2018 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L. The hitch and harness fit properly and was not to difficult with 3 guys working on the project. Had to remove the felt trunk protector, exhaust heat deflector and release the exhaust from the last 2 hangers to install the hitch. Replaced all after hitch was installed. Had to do some trimming of both exhaust heat protector and felt trunk protector. Took around 3 hrs for the install when using air / power tools. Nice fit and finish when done. Reasonable price and fast ship. 667626

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Difference Between Draw-Tite Hitches for 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and Non-Hybrid
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitches # 76046 and # 76046-SK are essentially the same hitch except # 76046-SK includes a bracket kit that's for relocating the carbon canister on the hybrid model of the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica. The relocation kit by itself is part # 76046SK. I've attached a picture of the extra brackets. We haven't heard anything specifically about the hands-free lift gate not working after the hitch is installed. Looking at the location it doesn't appear that it would except right...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness to Fit a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
  • I reached out to my contact at Draw-Tite, and you are correct that they just added that adapter. We are adding it to our site to give you the fit you are seeking for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This will require purchase of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76046 and also the kit # 76046SK.

  • Does Trailer Hitch for 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus Affect Hands-Free Liftgate
  • That's a good question, but you will absolutely still be able to use the hands-free liftgate on your 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76046 installed. You will likely need to kick your foot to one side of the hitch receiver but that's all. This is a great choice for a hitch on your '19 Pacifica because not only does it not require any drilling into your car's frame to install, but it also has a concealed crosstube, as you can see in the accompanying...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
  • Both the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 76046 and the Curt Class III # C13383, which are confirmed to fit your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, will require that the heat shield is trimmed/modified for proper installation. In both cases the heat shield does get reattached after the hitch is in place. Even when trimming the heat shield, your vehicle will still be protected because the installed hitch will essentially be taking the place of the trimmed off portions. Between the two hitches,...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L and Class III Hitch
  • For trailer hitch # 76046 and your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer...

  • Ground Clearance with Curt Trailer Hitch Installed on a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L
  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13383 will be directly under the rear fascia on your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L once installed. If you measure from the bottom of the rear fascia down 2-1/2 inches that is approximately where the bottom of the hitch will be. Then you can measure from that point to the ground for a close approximation of ground clearance. Based on some of the other hitches available for the vehicle it looks to be about 10 inches from the ground to the bottom of the hitch. You...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Touring
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Touring is the Draw-Tite # 76046 because it has the highest tongue weight capacity among all hitches that fit your vehicle, which speaks to its strength, and because of Draw-Tite's strong reputation for making high-quality products. The Draw-Tite # 76046 is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver, 675 lb tongue weight capacity and 4,500 lb towing capacity. It is a complete bolt-on installation so there is not going to be any...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica to Tow a Pop Up Camper
  • It looks like the gross weight of the pop up camper is 2,800 pounds based on the picture you have submitted so a 3,500 pound towing capacity from your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is more than enough. For a trailer hitch I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 76046 because with it only the receiver will be visible unlike other hitch options. Since you plan on towing I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a...

  • Best Way to Carry Cargo with 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
  • For a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica that has dual sliding doors the Yakima DryTop Rooftop Cargo Bag # Y07404 is not an ideal option - dual sliding doors are prone to cause interference. The best way for you to carry cargo on an '18 Pacifica is by using a trailer hitch and hitch-mounted cargo carrier because it will give you plenty of room to carry a large amount of cargo and is simple to use. The trailer hitch I highly recommend for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is the Draw-Tite # 76046...

  • Towing Capacity for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring
  • I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and it states that for this vehicle without the factory tow package it can pull a trailer that weighs up to 1,500 pounds. For models with the factory tow package this capacity jumps up to 3,600 pounds. I highly recommend verifying this information in your copy of the manual as well. If you do not yet have a trailer hitch installed I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame # 76046. This Class...

  • Will Installing a Trailer Hitch Still Allow Hands Free Liftgate to Work on a 2019 Chrysler Pacifica
  • A trailer hitch won't keep the hands free liftgate on your 2019 Chrysler Pacifica from working but it may be a little more difficult for the sensors to pick up the movement from your foot due to the extra material that is blocking it. If you check out the picture that I attached you can see the places that we have found work best with a trailer hitch installed if you use a forward and back kicking motion as opposed to swiping left to right. If you haven't already decided on a trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • For the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica you will want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 76046 which is a Class III 2 inch hitch confirmed as a fit for the vehicle. The liftgate performance would change slightly but woudl still function. You would just need to kick to either side of the hitch opening instead of below it. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 118712 which is a confirmed fit. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes...

  • Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories Recommendation-2017 Chrysler Pacifica

I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 76046 which is a similar design of comparable quality at a more reasonable price. The Draw-Tite hitch also includes all necessary hardware. If you plan on using the hitch for towing purposes, you'll need a few other items to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness,...

  • How Much of the Heat Shield Needs to Be Trimmed for a Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76046 which is a fit for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica excluding Hybrid models will require trimming to the heat shield as you mentioned and the remaining portion is then installed back on the vehicle so yes, though I am not sure it will be exactly half. I have attached a photo of the trimming for the heat shield in addition to an entire install video. If you can tell me what you will be using the trailer hitch for I would be glad to...

  • Hollywood Racks TRS 2-Bike Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
  • As long as you have a hitch installed on your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica like the Draw Tite part # 76046 which is a 2 inch hitch or the part # 36798 which is a 1-1/4 inch the Hollywood Racks TRS 2-Bike Platform Rack # HR3000 will fit and be a great option. This rack is a nearly impossible option to beat. Normally the platform bike racks like this that only touch the bikes at the tires are very expensive and very heavy. This has a great price and isn't quite as heavy at 52 lbs. It's also...

  • Great news! I can help you with all those things for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. First let's start with a hitch for your vehicle. I recommend the 2 inch Class III Draw-Tite # 76046 hitch, because of its higher weight capacity. This 2 inch receiver hitch will be more compatible with accessories on the market. It is also compatible with the Limited, LX, and Touring models. For the wiring for the cargo carriers lights like the Pro Series # 63153 with LED light kit # 98174LED, you...

  • Does Trimming of Heat Shield of 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hurt Anything

  • Comparison between Curt And Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • The biggest difference between the Curt hitch # C13383 and the Draw-Tite # 76046 is the towing capacity and weight distribution capacity. The Curt has a 4000 lb towing capacity and 5000 lbs with weight distribution while the Draw-Tie hitch has a 4,500 lb towing capacity and 5000 lb with weight distribution. Both hitches are corrosion resistant powder coated and require no drilling for installation. I've linked the install details as well as videos on each hitch for you.

  • Bike Racks For a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica That Doesnt Impact Lift Gate Hatch Use
  • For a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, you can choose between a hitch mounted rack and a trunk mounted rack. The biggest reason for one over the other would be what kind of bikes you have. If you have a lot of standard framed bikes and don't mind giving up the use of the rear hatch, or you have a Hybrid model, a trunk mounted carrier like the Yakima FullBack 3 Bike Rack, part # Y02633 is a good pick. This is a fully featured rack that includes an integrated bike lock and a security strap for...

  • Installation of Trailer Hitch on 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?
  • Nope, there will be nothing done to the bumper whatsoever to install Draw-Tite hitch # 76046 in a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. The only modification that will need to be made is the underbody panel needs to be trimmed before being reattached. This is common with trailer hitches and is not something that will be noticeable at all.

At the very worst you might have to run your foot to either side of the hitch opening but it will still work just fine.

  • Bike Rack for Electric Bikes on a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
  • I have a solution for you, but there isn't a non-hitch solution for your electric bikes at this time. Most trunk mounted solutions will have a maximum of 30 pounds and the best capacity on a roof rack solution is 50 pounds. After adding in the weight of the roof rack itself and the bike racks to the weight of the bikes, may exceed your roof capacity and risk damage to your vehicle. Instead, I strongly recommend purchasing a hitch and hitch mounted rack for at least the electric bikes,...

On other vehicles with the same feature some people had minor issues (the sensor area was limited after the hitch was installed) and others who did not.
