Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Received in 2 days, which i thought was remarkable, and installed in 1-1/2 hours. I installed it working under the truck, laying on the cement. I do not encourage others to do this as this 81 year old is going to HURT tomorrow. Will have to raise the truck to torque the bolts as I could not get the leverage to do so. FIT PERFECTLY!! INSTRUCTIONS VERY GOOD. AND IT LOOKS GREAT!! 533783

2007 Chevrolet Silverado

I own a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 and a GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab, same hitch hookup, so I took off the hitch to my Sliverado and put it on my GMC for a trip, I then needed a replacement for the Silverado because I wasn't going to keep transferring it to each vehicle as needed. This hitch from etrailer provided what I needed, the difference between etrailer and OEM hitch is the etrailer side flange is set for 2 bolts for each side, while OEM has 3 bolts flange side both are rated at 6000lbs, I went with the 2 bolt do to I like the style of the round tube, it was the same round tube style as the OEM, The capacity is the same as the 3 bolt flange, so I just went with the 2 bolt flange hitch. Also the trailer i will be using with this hitch is only rated for 3500lbs, so the 2 bolt flange was good enough for me. One thing I do like about the etrailer hitch, the hardware for the second bolt comes with a square washer so it locks the bolt in place, The OEM bolt has two nuts, top and bottom and it is a non slip bolt which gets very tiring to undo and tighten. The hitch was very easy to install by myself but I had practice changing my hitch to my GMC before. Very Satisfied with purchase. 533690

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

I ordered a hitch and a 7-way / 4 flat plug for my 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. I chose free shipping and it arrived in 2 days. Both items were exact fit, I did the install myself with the help of a jack. The install took me about 2.5 hours because I had a problem with my wiring. The Tconnector was there but wires were cut. Overall, very satisfied with results. Etrailer you have a customer for life, I will highly recommend etrailer to anybody that needs a hitch. I'm including a picture and you can see my 7 way plug to right of license plate in the bumper. (Old spare tire crank hole) 691584

Tow hitch arrived promptly. Instructions said to remove your spare tire but after looking at where the hitch bolts up I left in in place with no problems. The only "snag" I had was that I had to loosen up the bolts that held the bumper in place as the two bolts that fasten to the underside of the bumper were off just enough that I couldn't thread them in. The bumper is an aftermarket bumper, not OEM. Very satisfied with this hitch. 819937

Quick and easy installation, single handed even for an older mechanic such as myself. Directions were easy to follow and all necessary hardware was included. This will suit my needs at a reasonable price, Thanks ETrailer . . . . . 815004

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch

  • How to install the Etrailer Class III hitch part # e98849 on a 2011 GMC Sierra
    The bolt closest to the front of the vehicle in the photo you sent, once it's removed the hole does not get used with the Etrailer hitch Item # e98849. The hitch will actually use the two rear most holes on each frame rail and the two holes in the bottom of the bumper. The reason one bolt is facing up is because the hole closest to the rear of the vehicle is a pre-existing weld nut that the bolt actually threads into. The bolt facing down will use a spacer block to keep the head of...

  • Does Installation of Trailer Hitch in 2003 Chevy Silverado Require Drilling
    The holes are already in the frame of your 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 for a trailer hitch receiver to be installed, which means you aren't going to have to do any drilling for installation. I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98849 because it is a quality hitch with a matte black finish that is going to hide any potential scratches while also being the most economical option for a trailer hitch on your truck. I have added a link to the installation instructions as well...

  • Do Trailer Hitches Fit Multiple Years Of The Chevy Silverado
    A lot of the trailer hitches available for the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado fit a span of over multiple years as long as the generation does not change. For example the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98849 fits 1999 - 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I would need to know if the 2013 chevy Silverado is a half-ton, three quarter or 1 ton. I would also need to know the bed size and if the truck is a cab chassis model in order to tell you which trailer hitches fit which years.

  • What Trucks Have the Same Hitch Fits as 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The trailer hitches that fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 like our etrailer.com hitch part # E98849 fit a really wide range of trucks. Basically GMC Sierra 1500 or Chevy Silverado 1500 from 1999 through 2013 plus the 1999 through 2004 2500LD trucks from GMC and Chevy. For the price of a new one like the # E98849 and the peace of mind knowing the hitch is brand new and not rusting or otherwise compromised a new hitch would seem like the best and safest choice!

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2002 GMC Sierra 1500
    Yes! The trailer hitch # e98849 is a confirmed fit for your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500! I attached a video of the install process if you want to check it out. If you're using this to tow, you might also want to pick up our towing package with a ball mount # C45036 and wiring harness # C55384.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Lowered 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500
    If you have the stock bumper then the hitches made to fit the stock bumper would work well for you. For that we have the etrailer.com hitch part # e98849 as a confirmed fit. This won't fit behind the license plate though. The roll pan bumper hitches like the part # 13932 might work for this since that's how they install but we can't guarantee they'll work with the factory bumper.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 Classic V6 Occasional Towing
    We have a great priced hitch that fits your 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic that would work really great. The etrailer.com hitch part # E98849 fits your vehicle and has more than enough capacity than you'd need. Your V6 engine would not affect the fit of this hitch either. I attached an install video for more info as well on this hitch. Since you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500
    There's a chance the Curt hitch part # E-3S would fit your 2010 Chevy Silverado but since this is a universal style hitch that's never been fit tested on your truck we can't guarantee that. We do have hitches for your Silverado though that are a confirmed fit. For example we have the etrailer hitch part # E98849 which has a 6,000 lb trailer capacity and attaches to the truck frame instead for a much more secure mount.

  • Is The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver 13301 A Fit For A 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
    While we do have a solution for you, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13301 is designed for new generation models starting in 2007. My recommendation is the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2" # e98849 for your 2006 Silverado because the matte black finish tends to be more scratch resistant than the glossy finishes like that of the Curt. Included are video resources for both.

  • Would Trailer Hitch from 1995 Chevy Silverado fit 2001 Chevy Silverado
    There was a pretty big generation change between 1998 and 1999 Chevy Silverados which meant the hitch manufacturers had to redesign a hitch for the trucks. That means you'd need a new hitch for the 2001 Silverado like the # e98849.

  • Will Curt C13900 Fit my 2001 Chevy Silverado
    While the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13900 Would fit your Silverado it would require a lot of modifications be made to the truck by drilling into the frame. Instead use the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98849 which is designed specifically for your 2001 Silverado and will not require any drilling. It is also more economical and has a higher weight capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure that you do not exceed your particular trucks capacity. If for some...
