  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1966 Ford F-100 With a Standard Bumper
    I have included a picture of what a deep drop bumper is going to look like for you. If your bumper looks more like the standard bumper, pictured in the FAQ I have linked for you, then you do not have the 10 inch bumper. You would then need a trailer hitch that is designed for the regular bumper, like # 41001. I have included a link to the installation details for both hitches. I also recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4. It comes with a ball mount, interchangeable ball set,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1977 Chevy C10 Pick-up with 6 Foot Step Side Bed
    We do have trailer hitches that will fit your 1977 Chevy C10 short bed but # C13099 is only for long bed models. For your truck you can use Curt trailer hitch # 13028 unless it has the 10 inch deep drop bumper. If it does have the deep drop bumper you can use # C15511. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4. It comes with a ball mount with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop, interchangeable ball set, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball...

    We have hitches that fit your 1985 Chevy C10 that has a deep bumper with the Curt hitch part # C13099. Your setup would definitely not be too low to tow with. A rise ball mount would make up for a lower hitch as well. I attached a help article

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 1992 Ford F-150
    Depending on the type bumper you have on your 1992 Ford F-150, we have a hitch that will work for you. If you have a deep drop bumper on your truck, I recommend the Curt Class lll Hitch, part # C13099. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening. If your F-150 has a standard bumper installed, I recommend the Curt Hitch, part # C15300. This is also a Class lll hitch, and has a 2 inch receiver opening.

  • Parts Needed for Towing with a 1983 Chevrolet C20 Pickup
    The Curt Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13099 that you referenced will fit your 1983 Chevrolet C20 if it has an 8 foot bed and came with a deep drop bumper. This trailer hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight (GTW) and 500 lbs Tongue Weight (TW). When used with a Weight Distribution (WD) system those capacities are increased to 5,500 lbs GTW and 550 lbs TW.

  • Hitch Recommendations for a 1985 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck
    This will fit your 1985 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup as long a you have an 8 foot bed and a deep drop bumper. You will have to drill six 7/32 inch holes in order to install this Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13099, but you will not need to do any welding. If you had a 6 foot bed, you would want a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75034 I attached installation instructions for all of these hitches below for you to check out also.

  • Availability of a Class III Trailer Hitch to Fit a 1997 Chevrolet K1500 Truck
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13029, that you referenced will not fit the 1997 Chevrolet K1500 truck. If your truck has the standard or step bumper, then the Curt Class III Trailer Receiver Hitch, # C13042, will fit you truck. If your truck has the 10 inch deep drop bumper, then the Curt hitch, # C13099, is confirmed to fit. See attached picture to see the difference in bumpers.

  • Will The Curt 13900 Fit A 1979 Chevy 1/2 Ton Pickup
    For a 1979 Chevrolet 1/2 ton pickup I do have a hitch solution for you. While the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13900 is not a fit, you have multiple options to choose from depending what model you have. For a 6' or 8' bed with standard bumper # C14082 is what you're looking for while for the deep drop bumper # C13099 is instead the correct hitch. For the cab and chassis model, the Curt # 13028 would then be your choice. Included is a Help Article on this topic to refer...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1987 Chevy C/K 1500 With a Deep Drop Bumper
    A deep drop bumper is a bumper that hangs further below the frame than a standard bumper. Check out the photo that I attached showing a deep drop bumper compared to a standard bumper and a step bumper. We have three frame mount trailer hitches that will work with a deep drop bumper on your 1987 Chevrolet C/K 1500. You could install the Curt Hitch, # C13099 or the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 41504. These are all Class III trailer hitches that have a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs and a tongue weight...

  • Does the Curt Multi-Fit Hitch C13900 Fit a 1992 Ford F-150
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt Multi-Fit Hitch # C13900 is not a confirmed fit on your 1992 F-150. If you have a standard bumper on your F-150 you can use the Curt # 14001 and if you've got a deep-drop bumper you'll want to use the Curt # C13099. Both of these hitches will require drilling into the frame of the vehicle during installation, but that is going to be required with all of the hitches that are confirmed on your vehicle.

  • How to Pick Out a Trailer Hitch for a 1985 Chevy Truck
    That is going to depend on what style 1985 Chevy Silverado you have. The Draw Tite part # 75034 will fit if you have 6 foot or 8 foot bed with standard or step bumper. For a deep drop bumper you would need the # C13099, or for a cab and chassis # 13028 which has been confirmed to fit. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in 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...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 1976 Ford F150 with a Deep Drop Bumper
    A roll pan bumper is a bumper that basically makes the rear bumper look as if it does not stick out further than the rest of the truck and that is molded into the rear of the truck. Its basically a cosmetic modification that you see on a lot of lowered and/or show trucks. What you have is definitely a deep drop bumper. Check out the FAQ article I attached on bumper types for you to check out. With that being said, you will need a hitch designed for trucks with deep drop bumpers like...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1996 Chevy K1500 with Roll Pan Bumper Installed
    What you will want to do is look at the hitches available for the 1996 Chevy K1500 with 10 inch deep drop bumper. These hitches come down lower and could work for you. Curt hitch # C15317 has the highest capacity of the options at 2,400 pounds tongue weight capacity and 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight capacity. But it measures 7-1/4 inches from the bottom of the frame to the top of the receiver. Check your truck to see if your could get away with 7-1/4 inches. If it will not work...

  • Fit of Curt Class V Receiver Part # C15300 on 1992 Ford F250 with 10 Inch Drop Aftermarket Bumper
    According to my contacts at Curt Manufacturing, the Class V Receiver you referenced, part # C15300 will work with a stock bumper only. Your 10 inch bumper comes down too far for the receiver opening to clear the bumper. I am told that the Class III Receiver, part # C13099 will most likely work with your bumper. The top of the receiver opening is 7-1/4 inches below the top of the mounting flanges. To confirm that it will work on your truck, measure down 7-1/4 inches from the bottom of...

  • Is Modification Necessary for Curt Multi-Fit Hitch on 1996 Ford F-150
    I reached out to my contact at Curt and he said for your 1996 Ford F-150 the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13902 would require some pretty significant modifications on the truck for installation. Even when considering that the actual custom-fit options for your F-150 also require drilling into the frame rails, he does not recommend this multi-fit option for your truck unless it's an absolute emergency (just need to mount something in a pinch). He has installed the hitch before and it's...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2000 Chevy C3500 with Utility Bed
    For your 2000 Chevy C3500 with the utility bed your best option is going to be a hitch designed for models that have the 10 inch deep drop bumper such as # C13099. that will drop the receiver down far enough but it or any hitch will be recessed a good amount under the vehicle because of the utility body. There isn't a way around that other than to use a super extra long ball mount like # 80232 which is 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole.
