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.

I received the new hitch from e-trailer within a couple of days of ordering. I was able to install it the next day. My old hitch had a plate welded to it. I ground that off and bolted it to the new hitch. Everything went smoothly. The old bolts came out and the new hitch fit. I put "never seize" on the new bolts to be sure they would come out if ever needed.

Am very happy with the trailer hitch that I purchased. I had a little trouble getting it to mount on my truck and thought the hitch may have been bent, but after talking with a company representative who informed me that the hitch frame would flex slightly, I was able to clamp the hitch and get all bolt holes to align properly before removing my clamp. I have made 4 major hauls with my truck towing 8ft or longer trailers and have had no problems. Thank you ETRAILER for this product.



by: 12/22/2022

I’m hoping everything installs without problems. Looking forward to putting it on my truck. I bought the oem wiring harness and that all went perfectly. Thanks

Tom T.

Very well . And Nissan dealer wanted $1700.00 to do this job. That to me was way out of line . The wiring and hitch were only less than $300.0. I wired everything myself and that took only 40 minutes. Very good design. But was bent in the shipping. I finally had breakmasters do the install and it was a struggle for them also. But it finally came together. And I’m satisfied with the outcome.



by:

Fast shipping. I did not expect it to be so heavy, it weighs more than my trailer! ...and that's a good thing. Really solidly constructed.

Michael

I had it for a while before finally installing it. I was able to install it by myself using a couple of jack stands. It bolted right onto my 2013 Frontier without any problem. Highly recommend.

@Michael That's great to hear, thank you!


by:

I was very pleased with how quickly it arrived. It was fairly easy to install by myself and the holes aligned up perfectly!



by:

LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Best value and quality I found after all my research. Installation was a breeze just as promised by etrailer. Purchased the wiring harness kit as well and it went in flawlessly. Sales support was fantastic at time of purchase. Would certainly recommend any purchase from etrailer.

Perfectly! Ive recommended E-Trailer to other family members and friends. Several of whom have gone ahead and purchased from E-Trailer. They are just as satisfied with the installation of both the hitch and the wiring harness. Thank you again.



by:

Had checked with two local trailer install companies that said $500.00 to $525.00 to install hitch and wiring. Ordered the hitch from e trailer, took me (with a little help from my wife) about 30 minutes to install. Only 6 bolts that went in to pre drilled and factory installed nuts Saved me over $300.00. Third hitch purchased from e trailer and all were perfect fit and great service.

Hitch is still tight and working great. Supports my heavy mobility scooter with no problem.

Shipped fast and fit perfectly to my 2022 Frontier. Side note, this had to be the easiest hitch install I’ve ever done. 6 bolts total and all are visible and easily accessible with just a socket wrench



by:
2022 Nissan Frontier

Excellent. I ordered this hitch, wiring harness and 4 pin wire mounting bracket.
Free shipping. Had it in 3 days. Some customers have commented about the hitch mounting holes alignment, the packaging, etc. I had ZERO issues. Could not be more happy with the overall experience. I will definitely shop again when I need any trailer related parts, and will be sure to recommend you guys to my friends. Here's a couple of photos

After a year I am completely satisfied with the hitch. Looks factory on the truck.

@WoodrowJ Great, we're glad to hear that!

Hitch arrived in two days. I used a floor jack to loft it in place to secure with the six bolts supplied. Cleaned frame holes with brake clean, lubes bolts with fluid film and torqued to specs. 15 minute install. Great product!



by:

So far I've received and checked out the parts ordered. They arrived promptly and seem to be of excellent quality. Instructions enclosed seem adequate and I'm looking forward to a straight forward installation.

2023 Nissan Frontier

Perfect fit and I had it installed within 10 minutes!! Vehicle is a 2023 Nissan Frontier.



by:
2022 Nissan Frontier

Installation was easy. Looks great and we'll made. Shipped fast. Couldn't ask for more.



by:

I had no issues with the hitch. I haven’t used it a whole lot but my biggest take away is the product description is true and accurate. I had ordered 2 previous products from a different site that said it fit my 22 Frontier and they lied. This hitch had been great; easy to install yourself.



by:

I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of this hitch. I was worried that it might not be as heavy duty as I would have liked given the amazing price. I am certain this is better than the OEM hitch I would have paid four times more four. The installation took me less than 30 minutes and all the bolts and bolt holes were a perfect match. They had my other pulled within an hour and shipped out the next morning. I definitely will buy from them again.



by:

Perfect fit, super ez install!



by:

The trailer itself is fine. Unfortunately, this company doesn't believe in packaging their products properly or using a quality shipper. Not only ly did this take forever to arrive, the frame of the product was bent on arrival, and I can't bolt all of the screws to my truck frame. Really Unfortunate, when this part is this pricey. This is completely unacceptable.

Often times when the holes of the hitch and the vehicle do not line up, it is because the hitch has flexed during shipping. Because a hitches mounting brackets are made from mild steel, the mounting brackets can flex during shipping. If the entire hitch was rigid steel, there would be a greater chance of the hitch being damaged and experiencing stress cracks. I do have a link below for your future reference.



by:

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.



by:

Fits perfectly, easy install, arrived sooner than expected by 2 days all great. The packaging could be better. The cardboard box it came in was ripped in a few places but after inspecting no damage to product. Would highly recommend



by:

Got the receiver assembly OK & fairly quickly. Didn't get the bed extender I ordered when I bought the hitch receiver. Didn't get any \ installation instructions and no mounting bolts.

Oh no! I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. Oftentimes the hardware and the manual will be stored inside the hitch receiver.

Great product easy to install



by:
2019 Nissan Frontier

I received my hitch and wiring harness kit for my 2019 Frontier within a few days after ordering. The items were well packaged, and nothing was damaged. The install instructions/video on your website were spot on. I had the whole thing installed and ready to go in less than an hour. Fit and finish of the etrailer hitch is very nice for the price. I would definitely recommend etrailer.com to others.

    For your 2022 Nissan Frontier I recommend going with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98869. This hitch is a perfect fit for your vehicle and it has a 500lb tongue weight and 5000lb trailer weight rating, or an 800lb tongue weight and 8000lb trailer weight rating if using a weight distribution hitch making this a very versatile hitch.

  • Does etrailer Hitch for 2022 Nissan Frontier Have Capacity for Towing 2004 Jeep Wrangler
    The etrailer hitch part # e98869 has a towing capacity of 5,000 lb total trailer weight and the weight of a 2004 Jeep Wrangler is between 3,200 and 3,700 lb so this hitch would easily have the capacity needed to flat tow it. Your Frontier has an even higher towing capacity of 6,200 to 6,700 so you'd easily have the capacity needed.

  • Trailer Wiring Relay Location for 2022 Nissan Frontier

  • Will the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Work On a 2012 Nissan Frontier With 5K Trailer
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98869 which is a fit for a 2012 Nissan Frontier is rated for 5,000 lbs or 8,000 lbs with weight distribution. If the trailer is under 5,000 lbs loaded then you will be fine without weight distribution but if it's over 5,000 lbs but not 8,000 lbs then you will need a weight distribution system.
