I would give this product 5 out of 5 stars! The product itself is constructed of high quality metal, the welds are strong, and it has a clean finish. Installation was a breeze! It took me less then ten minutes to install. The package included all the hardware I needed, detailed directions, and an easy to read diagram. Lastly the customer service was outstanding. I called in with several questions and they were able to answer them immediately. They even helped me to place my order and make sure everything was correct for my truck. To top it off they even checked back in with me on the day of delivery to make sure that everything fit and was up to my expectations. 441873

I received my hitch today and installed it on my 1992 Chevy Silverado with roll pan. My roll pan already had a cut-out behind the plate. Picked up my flip down plate holder online and everything worked great. Actual installation time was less than 20 minutes. Gives the truck a nice clean look! 237556

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 1989 Chevy C/K Series Pickup with Roll Pan Bumper
  • For your 1989 Chevy C/K Series Pickup I recommend the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # 13942. This will fit your truck with the roll pan and the only slight modification you will need to do on the bumper is to cut in the license plate area so the hitch receiver can be accessed. Also please note that this hitch will only fit the 1500 models (there is not a hitch available for the 2500/3500 models with a roll pan bumper). This is a heavy-duty Class III hitch that will provide you with a...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1992 GMC 3500
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 41947 fits the cab and chassis models of the 1992 GMC 3500 trucks. These are the trucks that do not come with beds and are turned into utility trucks, ambulance vehicles, and similar things like that. These trucks have a narrower frame width than the pickup models. If your truck's frame width is 34 inches wide measured from the outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other then this hitch will fit. If you have a regular pickup model with a standard/step...

  • Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13942, will be hidden behind the spring loaded license plate on your 1997 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup with a roll pan bumper. I have included a link to the installation instructions for this hitch for reference. This is the only hitch specifically designed for use if the truck has a roll pan. For wiring, you will need Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118315. I have included a link to the installation details and video for reference.

  • Trailer Hitch for a Lifted 1997 Chevy C/K Series 1500 Truck
  • Cab and chassis models are what they use to make service vehicles like flat beds and utility trucks. They have frame rails that are more narrow. If your truck can with a bed on it then it is most likely not a cab and chassis. Since the truck is lifted, adding a roll pan does not necessarily mean that you have to get the roll pan bumper hitch. I will depend on how the roll pan mounts and how far it comes down. You will want to look at the instructions for the roll pan hitches, like...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 Stepside Bed With Roll Pan Bumper
  • There is a trailer hitch designed to work on the 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 with a roll pan bumper. You can use Curt hitch # 13932. Since your roll pan bumper already has the cut out you will not need to trim any more. I have linked a video showing the Curt hitch being installed. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4.

  • Trailer Hitch for 1990 GMC Sierra With Roll Pan Bumper
  • We do have an option for a trailer hitch that will fit your 1990 GMC Sierra with your customized roll pan bumper but Draw-Tite hitch # 40050 will not work. The hitches that are confirmed to fit your truck are the Draw-Tite # 41522 and Curt # 13942, though these will require you to cut your bumper for receiver access. If you (understandably) do not want to do that another option is the universal fit Draw-Tite # 41990-16 which fits frames up to 44 inches wide and has 16 inch tall brackets....
