Installed on my 86 Chevy C10. Had to modify a few things but not terrible. There were some brackets that connected the bumper to the frame that needed to be removed. I took a picture of the bracket loosely attached for reference. Also had to drill out some rivets in a piece of metal that connects the two frame rails. I took a picture of me pointing at the spot where the rivet was. So had to drill 4 holes total. Overall not too difficult and is pretty well hidden under the truck. 654964

Despite it being listed for a 1996 Ford F150 6 cylinder with a step bumper it did not fit my truck. I am now purchasing a class 4 hitch that was told to me that it will fit on the phone by Preston. My complaint is, I am told that I have to pay for the return. This comes out to a penalty to me and it is not my fault. I would advise any future customers not to trust the computer listing. I am sorry to say that someone must call and get a human on the phone and not to trust the on-line listing. 501277

John, thank you for your review. This hitch part 13028 fits vehicles with a frame that is 34 inches wide outside to outside. If you have a 37 inch frame with your 1996 Ford with a stepstandard bumper I recommend part # 14001

Received the hitch in a couple of days of ordering, well packed. As the instructions stated, approximately one hour to install. It would not have taken that long, (about 50 minutes), but the old receiver had to be removed first. Well built, I believe I'll get as long a service out of this one as the last. Reason for replacement, could not remove hitch from old receiver, it was so rusted in, been in the receiver for 30 years, and I needed an adjustable hitch installed. I'll be sure to keep this one lubed some. Sorry, unable to post a picture, looks like the advertisement though. This was my second purchase from etrailer, will not hesitate to buy from again, should I need what they have. 124802


Comments

Hello JimWhen you installed this hitch, you mentioned that it was adjustable, was it adjustable by the width? Because Im not seeing where the adjustments are on the picture.

Jim meant that he needed to use an adjustable hitch or ball mount like part # 80412

. His old ball mount was frozen in the receiver of the hitch on the vehicle. The receiver hitch, the part that mounts to the vehicle, is not going to be adjustable.

Product and hardware are of good quality, only 1 hole on each side of my trucks frame lined up, so I had to drill more holes in the frame and line it up the best I could, also it didn’t clear the license plate frame on the bumper so I had to trim that about an inch, but in the end it looks good and feels secure, so I’m happy, I haven’t towed with it yet but I torqued the bolts up with a breaker bar so I’m sure it will be fine for a small boat. 546895


Comments

When installing a trailer hitch like part # 13028 it is necessary to use a torque wrench to get the bolts to the right tightness. It is important to tighten bolts to the specified foot lbs in the instructions to avoid failure. Many auto parts stores lend out tools so you will not have to buy one in most cases.

This hitch arrived way quicker than I ever thought it would. I ordered 3 items on the same day and the other two are still several days out. The hitch appears to be a quality piece. All of the welds look good and the paint is nice. It also came with all the mounting hardware and instructions. 479926

The hitch fit excellent upon installation. It still looks like a quality piece with no rust or paint peeling. I really couldnt expect a better hitch than this.

Installed this on my 69' C-10 LWB about 1yr ago and have had very good success with it. As I recall it was a little more difficult because I set it forward a little more than normal and had to drill a couple holes. It wound up being almost a hidden hitch. Hitch appears to be well built with good looking welds. I have used this to tow 22' Ski boat on numerous occasions without any issues. 659203

Prior to making an online purchase, it is important you get fact based reliable information from the seller. I have a trailer hitch for my '85 C-10 however it does not allow clearance for the original spare. I requested conformation that the Curt #13028 would allow clearance for the standard spare. Now I have two hitches that do not meet my needs. Thank you Michael 577324

This receiver hitch is very well built. I installed it this morning on a 1977 Chevy 3/4 ton, two wheel drive truck. I only had one installation issue. The hitch comes with washers to space between the frame and the hitch. You can not bolt it against the frame because of the rivet on each side fastening the rear crossmember to the frame. I wanted the hitch to have direct contact to the frame. I ground the heads off of the rivets then punched them out. I then drilled the rivet holes out to 1/2" along with the other four holes to mount the hitch. Now the center bolts go through the frame and rear crossmember making it just as strong if not stronger than factory. It takes a little more time but I think it makes a cleaner mounting job. A good product and great service from etrailers. 225168

  • Dimensions Of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch On 1978 GMC Pickup For Clearance
  • I called my contact at Draw-Tite and asked about the dimensions you mentioned. They do not offer drawings of the items but did give me some dimensions that will help you determine if it will work for you. Spacer blocks, part # 01077-011 are required when installing the # 75034 hitch because of the rivets on the frame of your truck. You will need six of the blocks to complete the installation. The measurement from the bottom of the truck frame to the top of the receiver is 5-5/8...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1976 Chevy C or K Series Short Bed Stepside Pickup
  • We have some hitch options that fit your 1976 Chevy C or K series short bed stepside pickup. In this case the stepside bed does not matter. The length does. You can use Curt Class III hitch # 13028 or Class IV hitch # C14082. For # C14082 the frame width will need to be 34 inches (measured outside to outside). Or you can use Draw-Tite hitch # 75034-011 (does not fit models with heavy duty suspension). I have linked instructions for these hitches for you.

  • Which Trailer Hitch Fits 1977 Ford F-250 with 34 inch Wide Trailer Frame
  • Based on the frame dimensions you listed for your 1977 Ford F-250 you actually have a cab and chassis model which has the narrower 34 inch wide frame. That means instead the hitch you need is the Curt part # 13028 which is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and it's cab and chassis style frame.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 1994 Ford F-150 with Roll Pan Bumper
  • We have the custom fit for a standard or step bumper # 13028 or the deep drop bumper # 41504 confirmed to fit your 1994 Ford F-150 Flareside. The Roll Pan bumper does not have a custom fit, so if you don't want the long receiver tube, I recommend using an universal fit that you can customize for your truck fit. My recommendation is the Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver - 18"-51" Wide - 2" Drop - Class III # C13701. This hitch will require drilling into your frame and the crossbar...

  • What do Trailer Acronyms GTW and TW Mean
  • In the trailer world GTW stands for Gross Trailer Weight, and TW means tongue weight. Gross trailer weight is the entire weight of the trailer and tongue weight is the amount of vertical load that is on the coupler of the trailer. Basically how the vertical weight that the trailer hitch carries. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well.

The main difference between Draw-Tite trailer hitches # 75033 and # 75099 is the placement of the receiver tube on the cross member. On 75033 the receiver is attached to the rear part of the cross member. On 75099 it is welded below the cross member so that the cross member will not...

  • Where to Measure Vehicle Frame for Picking Out Trailer Hitch
  • When measuring the frame width on a vehicle, you will need to measure from the outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other frame rail. If you have the larger frame width of 37-1/4 inches you would want the Curt Hitch part # C15300, or if you have the 34 inch frame width (most likely cab and chassis model) you would want the part # 13028.

A deep drop bumper will have the cut out in the middle but drops below the bottom of the bumper (at the center) so that it angles up from the center to the outer edges of the bumper.
