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 - 2018 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2018 Nissan Frontier, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the etrailer Class III custom fit trailer hitch receiver.Here's what our hitch looks like once we have it installed on our Frontier. The cross tube's going to be pretty well hidden behind the bumper, and all we're going to see is that receiver tube sticking out right underneath. It's a Class III hitch, which means it's going to give us that 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening, and have a really wide variety of accessories that we can mount up.Whether we're mounting up a ball mount, a cargo carrier, or a bike rack, or any other accessory, we're going to use the hitch pin hole here on the side. It is going to accept the standard 5/8 pin and clip. These are not included in the kit, but you can pick them up here at etrailer.com, along with some locking devices to make sure your accessories are secure.Our safety chain connection point's going to be a loop style, welded to the bottom of the receiver. You can see that we're not going to have too much trouble getting most sized hooks on and off.

It is going to be just slightly offset from the pin hole, so we shouldn't have to worry about any kind of interference.As far as the weight capacity goes for our hitch, it's going to have a 500 pound tongue weight, which is the maximum downward force to the receiver tube, along with a 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. That's the amount it can pull, including the trailer and everything we have loaded on it. Our hitch is also rated for use with weight distribution systems, which can be a separate component mounted on your trailer. But that's going to bump the tongue weight up to 800 pounds and the gross trailer weight rating up to 8,000 pounds. With all those numbers in mind, you should always double check your Nissan's owner's manual and never exceed the manufacturer's recommended weight.I'd like to give you a few measurements, and that's going to help you whenever you're looking at accessories for your new hitch.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper, it's going to be right about 3-1/2 inches. That measurement's going to come in handy when you're looking at folding accessories, to make sure you have enough clearance and that it's not going to come in contact with the rear bumper. From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, it's going to be right about 19 inches. That measurement's going to come in handy when you're looking at a ball mount, to make sure you find the appropriate rise or drop to match up to your trailer.So now that we've seen what our hitch looks like and gone over some of the features, let's check out how to get it installed. To begin our installation, we're going to come to the back of our Frontier, and on each side, we'll find three holes in the bottom of the frame.

These are going to be our mounting locations for our hitch. It's not a bad idea to spray some lubricant and clean out those weld nuts so we don't have to worry about any dirt, debris, or rust inside. Using a nylon brush, I'm going to clean out all the weld nuts on each side of the frame.Once those are cleaned out, I'm going to take an M12 bolt from our kit, and make sure that I can easily thread it in by hand. We don't have to worry about it cross threading. When we do go to put our hitch up, we're going to take our M12 bolt and a conical tooth washer, we want to make sure those teeth are facing up towards the hitch.

We'll go through our hitch, and into the weld nut in the frame.Now, with an extra set of hands, we're going to lift our hitch up, we'll line up the holes in the hitch with the weld nuts in the frame. And then we're going to loosely secure one of our bolts on each side. That way the hitch will support itself and we can get the rest of the hardware in place.I'm going to come back with a 19 millimeter socket, I'm going to snug up all my hardware. I'm going to come back with a torque wrench, I'm going to torque all my hardware down to the specified amount in the instructions. We're going to repeat that for any remaining hardware we have.That'll finish up your look at the etrailer Class III custom fit trailer hitch receiver on our 2018 Nissan Frontier.

I thought I might show this receiver trailer I just received from your company. Picture shows that left side lines up but right side doesn't. I'm fixing to go to a machinist to slightly bend this part. It's so difficult for me to put it up then remove to straighten then put back on. What are your thoughts? I prefer not to return as I broke the box up already. 625424

Arrived on schedule. Simply bolts on without a fuss. One may need an assistant to hold one end while the first bolt is being placed but I was to do this without help. 15min estimate was spot-on. 533472

I bought the kit with wiring harness receiver and hitch took les than 30 minutes to install everything every part was perfect and went together without a single problem. The fit and finish was perfect for my 2007 Nissan Frontier. I watched the install video prior to receipt so was read to install when it arrived like I said took less than 30 minutes. 533004

2009 Nissan Frontier

this hitch fit my 2009 Frontier perfectly. I had to run a tap through the mounting holes to get the bolts to go in but it's not the hitch's fault, just age of the truck. It appears to be well made, seems to be quite stout. And it really tucks up under the bumper nicely. It shipped quickly but it was just tossed in an empty cardboard box that had ripped and "repaired" by stapling on some more cardboard. The hitch was fine though. 533580

This hitch fits perfectly. Just threaded 3 bolts per side in to the factory bolt holes and was done in 15 minutes. Cannot even see the hitch except for the receiver itself and it's inconspicuously behind the back edge of the bumper, so barely noticeable. About the cleanest install possible. 533705

New truck owner call The Specialist who help me pick the right hitch and wiring for my very helpful and patient with my questions. Installation was really quick had to use couple jack stands to keep it up during installation. Installation was a breeze probably took me only 20 minutes 533723

2018 Nissan Frontier

Perfect fit and very easy to install. I did it by myself in under 30 minutes. Tied one end of the hitch to the frame to hold it in place, bolted on the opposite side loosely to hold it up, then put in a bolt on the first side and removed the string before installing and tightening all the remaining bolts. 591123

Got my hitch and harness today. The box was damaged at the receiver which is not entirely unexpected. Took everything to my friends shop since he had the space and tools. When we lined up the hitch, the slotted bolt holes did not line up. Whether it was due to the hitch being damaged in transit, manufactured out ot square or a factory frame issue is unknown. As I am a remodeling contractor, I know the value of a 2X4 and a bottle hydraulic jack. I was able to partially install the hitch and then spread it into place in order to install all six installation bolts. After that, we torqued them to proper foot lbs. These types of issues should be expected as there are too many variables when dealing with aftermarket products. I will say the shipping was fast and overall, the quality of the hitch appears decent for the price. Just be prepared for little issues when you install something like this. 531907

Very pleased with this receiver! The welding, finish and fit were great. Fast shipping and price made this transaction ideal. Only took this 67 year old 30 minutes to install. 2 c-clamps for hanging,little grease for the bolts and and battery impact. Now need to install wire harness. Great product! 567709

Hitch was quickly received after ordering and installed without any issues on my 2018 Nissan Frontier Pro4X Crew Cab. I preferred this model for the cost savings and I did not need a bracket or mount for the 7 way plug on the hitch since I mounted it in the bumper. 665440

I received the hardware to install the receiver onto my 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x and the receiver fix perfectly. The original hardware was missing I believe due to mishandling of the box the receiver came in, it was torn up. I can't imagine the box left ETRAILER in the condition I received it. 649966

Purchased hitch receiver and wiring harness for 2019 Nissan Frontier SV - both items were a piece of cake to install - DO watch the videos provided by eTrailer to make sure you complete the process quickly and cause no harm to your vehicle (interior plastics removed to install wiring harness and relays). Very Please with both items - installation for both items combined took less than 1 hour. HIGHLY recommend! 645054

Receiver and wiring kit for 2019 Nissan Frontier - everything fit perfectly and was a piece of cake to install. I would recommend watching the videos for each - excellent walk-through of the process plus, it will make sure you do not damage the interior when installing wiring harness/relays. I would also recommend use of a torque wrench as shown on the video. Both installations combined took less than 1 hour. Items arrived very quickly - in 2 days from order. Very pleased!! 646548

The hitch arrived and had all the parts along with an instruction sheet to show how to mount the receiver to the frame. The product that arrived had one side arm that was out of alignment with the holes in the frame. So what should have been an easy install was made more difficult. I ended up going to a mechanic in town to help me out. We were able to put a air pressure jack between the two side arms and push it out the additional inch needed to align it with the holes in the vehicle frame. Once that was completed it bolted in nicely. 639435

  • Comparing the eTrailer Hitch E98869 and the Curt Hitch 13241 for a 2018 Nissan Frontier
  • The eTrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98869 and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13241 which are both a fit for your 2018 Nissan Frontier have the same shape/design/capacity but are not exactly the same. The difference between them is in regards to their finish. The eTrailer hitch has more of a matte finish whereas the Curt trailer hitch has more of a gloss finish. They both have the same durability. I have attached an install video for you as well as a few photos.
