Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability.

In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Video Transcript for etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Ford Explorer

Speaker 1: Today on our 2016 Ford Explorer, we're going to be taking a look at, and I'm going to show you how to install etrailer.com trailer hitch receiver. Part number E98867.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the receiver tube is nice and flush with the bumper fascia so you not going to have to worry about hitting your legs or your shins on it when you're loading and unloading the vehicle. The cross tube itself, you can see part of it, but it has a nice black powder coat finish, so it really blends in with the vehicle well.We're going to have a reinforce collar to give us a little extra stability on the receiver tube. This is going to be a class three hitch. It's going to be two inch by two inch.

Your hitch pin hole is going to be 5/8 inch in diameter, and you can see it's going to have a plate 00:00:44 style safety chain hook up that's welded to the bottom of the cross tube on the hitch, and the bottom of the receiver tube.You can see we're going to have plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks and our weight capacities are going to be 400 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube, and a 4,000 pound max trailer weight which is a trailer plus the load included. You can use weight distribution with this hitch. The tongue weight's going to go up to 500 pounds. The trailer weight's going to go up to 5,000 pounds, however I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Explorer to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You want to choose the lowest norm 00:01:18 between the vehicle and the hitch.Now let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch product accessories you may need such as a bike rack, a ball mount, a cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about 3-1/2 inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 16-1/4 inches.Now I'll show you how to get this installed. First thing we need to do to start our installation, we're going to take a strap and we're going to hang it from the spring on one side, go underneath my exhaust, and hook it through the other spring on the other side. The reason we need to do this is we're going to have to lower our exhaust and we want to make sure our exhaust is supported.Next we're going to take a pry bar, the rubber isolator, you're going to have one on the driver's side, one on the passenger's side and you're going to have one right in the center by the strap. We going to take some spray lube and spray down the post.

We're going to take our exhaust off of the hanger.The next thing we need to do, we need to remove the brackets that are holding the rubber isolator. We're going to use an 18 millimeter socket. We're going to have one on the passenger's side and one on the driver's side that needs to be removed. The only thing different between the driver and passenger side is the driver's side you're going to have one more bolt on the inside of the frame rail because we actually are removing the tow hook.Next you want to remove your rubber isolator from your brackets. You're going to have a hex bolt like this.

We're going to use a flat washer. You're going to go through the hanger and then, right here on the side of the hitch, you're going to have a bracket. Put it on like that. Another flat washer and a nylon lock nut. You want to do that same thing on the other side.We'll take our pull wire, our carriage bolt, spacer block. We're going to thread our bolt on to our pull wire. This hole right here in the back of the frame, we're going to push our bolt first and then our washer block, now our spacer block if you notice is on one side more than the other. If you get this to where this is turned the wrong way, it's not going to sit flat so when you push it up in there, try to push it up in there as close to how it's going to lay as possible.The next set of hands 00:03:57 will lift the hitch into place. You're going to have two inaudible 00:03:59 nuts on both sides of the vehicle. We're going to take our hex bolt and kind of turn it towards you and make sure the teeth are facing up. We'll get one of these in on each side to help hold our hitch in place while we install the rest of our hardware.On the driver's side we're going to go up overtop of the exhaust. The passenger's side you want to make sure you pull the wire through the corresponding hole.Go ahead and remove your pull wire and then you're going to add a flange nut. Make sure you're careful and you don't push the bolt back up into the hole. Sometimes you might have to get a screwdriver but put a little bit of pressure on the bolt to get the nuts started, it helps out quite a bit.One thing to keep in mind, the passenger's side of the vehicle is going to have three bolts. The driver's side is only going to have two.Next you take a 19 millimeter socket and we're going to tighten all of our hardware. Once you have all your hardware tightened, you're going to torque it to specifications in the instructions.Once you have all your hardware torqued down, you can reinstall your exhaust. You're going to do that in reverse order from the way you took it off. Start with the one in the center, bring your way to the back.Once you have your exhaust back in place, you're going to remove your safety strap.inaudible 00:05:21 installation on the etrailer.com trailer hitch receiver part number E98867 on our 2016 Ford Explorer.

Trailer hitch arrived quickly and install video was excellent. The hardest part was lowering the exhaust from the hangers I chose the eTrailer hitch because of the powder black coating instead of the glossy black. You can see that the hitch is barely noticeable and fits tightly under the bumper! My lab Riley also digs it! Thanks! 615542

I have been very happy with my hitch I purchased last year. I have been even more impressed with the customer service and support I have received from etrailer.com. I have since purchased the floating cargo basket and a hitch bumper step and lighting assembly. etrailer.com has worked with me to ensure that the parts I ordered are compatible with one another. Their training videos on assembly are also very helpful. I recommend using etrailer.com. 537446

I did the trailer hitch alone without raising the Explorer. First I loosened two rear exhaust isolators, blocked up the mufflers with a vertical 2X4s. Then removed the central isolator from the exhaust. Lowering the entire exhaust system onto 2 2X4s laid flat under the exhaust pipe. Next, I removed the isolator brackets. Then threaded the hitch over the tail pipes. I threaded a 10" bolt into the rear hole of the driver side hitch to assist in alignment and support. Installed the special bolt in the rear hole on the passenger side and left the wire hanging. Raised the passenger side of the hitch and threaded the wire through the appropriate hole in the hitch. Inserted and snugged up the supplied bolts in the 2 other holes. Inserted the Driver side forward bolt, removed the temporary guide bolt, & inserted the supplied bolt and snugged up both bolts. Torqued all bolts to specified torque an smiled. Attacked the wiring connector as shown in the instructions, routed & tie wrapped the wiring along the same route as the factory installed wiring, and then along the hitch to the center. The whole process was a piece of cake and took me approximately 40 minutes. No pics..Look at the brochure. It is the same. Great Video you supplied me on-line. Dan 537579

I ordered hitch, harness #C56172, ball mount and hitch ball for 2013 Ford Explorer on 7/2/14 and received on 7/8/14 and started to install immediately. First I found wiring harness and followed instructions and snapped right into truck harness, behind rear passenger fender, then I backed up to trailer to make sure it worked. It worked as expected and then drove truck back into garage to complete hitch install. I installed by myself in about an hour using a jack stand to rest hitch on one side while I bolted side with three bolts (pass side). After I was done I hooked up to trailer for a test ride, all was good. Very satisfied with product and it was installed exactly as instructions were written. If you follow these directions this should be an easy install for home mechanic. I did use an impact wrench to take out bolts to remove hangers for mufflers, it made it much easier. 537530

Let me first just say that etrailer.com has customer service figured out. I was notified that the wiring harness was out of stock on the very day of my order but that they'd have the manufacturer send the harness directly to me. After calling customer service back, I was able to stop fulfillment of my entire order while it was being boxed and change to a different wiring harness. And since I was able to stop the order I made a couple of other minor changes, with Denitra being patient with me the whole time. Shipping was lightning fast, and with the videos, installation of the hitch receiver was a snap. What a great experience! 537609

The prep work of removing the old hangers took about 30 +/- mins. The drivers side hanger was completely different than the video that suggested that both sides were the same. It had some kind of tow hook and required a third bolt to be removed once I realized the whole unit needed to be removed. The rest of the installation followed the video very nicely. The finished product looked as promised by etrailer. I would recommend this product to anyone. 662012

I purchased my trailer hitch from etrailer and was thoroughly impressed with it. They provide a video on their website on how to install it and to my surprise it was actually as easy to install as they claimed it would be. Took me just under an hour to install with NO problems whatsoever. They also claimed it was vehicle specific, and it definitely was. Like I said I was thoroughly impressed and would definitely buy from them again. Great job etrailer. 652368

Outstanding service and fit. Ordered the hitch with wiring adapter and no-drill mount. Surprised me when I got home and the hitch was there waiting on me to install, ordered on a Tuesday and received on Thursday!! Watched the video and read the instructions and you guys were correct, took only about hour to install, I DID IT BY MYSELF!! I do have to say that most of that time was dealing with the carriage bolt and washer!! The hitch fit perfect with no issues and the wiring harness even better. Thanks guys, you saved me a ton of money vs the dealership!!!! 638840

etrailer.com is the best. Great hitch, great price and excellent installation videos. Hitch and wiring harness were shipped same day ordered and received the next day. I installed both the hitch and harness in less than an hour. No power tools or lift were used. I put the rear tires of the 2013 Explorer on ramps and had plenty of room. Hold the exhaust up using a wheeled floor jack or strap between the springs and you can move the exhaust and use it to hold the hitch while you get it bolted to the frame. I installed the hitch by myself. 596332

  • Towing Trailer with Higher GVWR than Tow Vehicle's Capacity

Since the trailer's GVWR (which refers to the most it can potentially weigh when loaded to its max) is more than the vehicle's capacity, you will just need to be very conscious of any weight you're adding and I recommend weighing it when fully loaded just to make sure it doesn't exceed 5,000 pounds.
