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.

Great hitch. Well made!

After unboxing,
I noticed an area where the matte black paint was rubbed off down to the base metal of the hitch. I cleaned this area and used black, metal rust proof spray paint and corrected it. The finished product is unnoticeable but more importantly, it won’t rust.

I’m going to paint the 2 bolts going into bumper black. It’ll give a cleaner look to the install.

Great product and I’m very satisfied with my purchase!



by:
2023 Toyota Tacoma

This was an easy install. Watch the video. The trick for snaking the hitch bolts is key. That was the most time consuming part. I was able to complete the by myself, it would have been really easy with a second person and a lift but I improvised with a couple milk creates and clamps.



by:

This is my second receiver for a 2021 Tacoma from etrailer. Excellent quality and fit twice. The first Tacoma was a lease and I left it on the truck never thinking of purchasing a used 2021 Tacoma, the reason I purchased a second receiver. The two bolts you need to feed into the frame can be interesting, first went well second one not so easy.



by:
Toyota Tacoma

Perfect fit and I installed it within an hour. Snaking the carriage bolts through the frame was a small challenge but patience pays off.
Like that the receiver part of the hitch is supported to the frame, my last Tacoma the receiver did not have this extra support. More heavy duty then the picture appears. Very pleased with purchase.



by:
2021 Toyota Tacoma

The video makes it look like it's going to be difficult to do. I had it installed in 15 minutes. The most frustrating part was the bolts in the tube but if you get the right angle it goes in smooth. Quality is great.



by:

The key to getting the fish bolts through the holes in the bumper, is to work the flat bolt retainer up at angle with a screwdriver through the hole it is going in as you pull the bolt through it. I spent an hour with retainer laying over hole and trying to get bolt to stand up and drop through. That won't work. Watch the video right before you attempt this and do it exactly like the guy in the video. You will definitely need a dead blow hammer. The hitch fits tight but I kept jack stands under it as I adjusted it to bolt it to the frame.



by:
2022 Toyota Tacoma

Took this to my garage peeps to install- they showed me how poorly it was designed with the fishing nuts and bolt provided. And I saw how useless it was when it was up on the rack. Other reviewers have mentioned this same issue.

As I don't intend to haul anything heavy like a trailer, it will be enough to hold my kayaks or bikes.



by:
2023 Toyota Tacoma

Fast delivery.
It's good that you tape
the hardware to the hitch because the box arrived with 2 large holes in it and if the hardware was in a loose package it probably would have fallen out of the box.



by:
2017 Toyota Tacoma

Was able to install it myself without much trouble fishing the bolts through was tricky was going to give up but watched the video and had to tilt the spacer just so great price



by:

Easily navigated website. Super fast delivery. Great product that looks and Fit like it came from the dealer! I will definitely use them again for anything trailer related.



by:

The hitch was delivered as promised; installation instructions were concise, and install went well. I plan to have it help anchor rear bumper step, and provide protection to back of vehicle.



by:

Ease of installation and works



by:

Product is very good quality and it looks great.
I was able to install it myself (and with the help of a jack to keep the hitch in place while I put the screws in)
I had trouble with the fishwiring process initially. It has to be done in a very specific way or it won't work. My advice: Read the manual at least five times and just follow the exact instructions.

Overall, I highly recommend this product.



by:

Fits perfectly and installation was easy. Great option if your truck needs a hitch.



by:
2023 Toyota Tacoma

I had an extra hour today so I put it on truck. Heard horror stories about fishing the plate and bolt but did both in less than minutes.
Still need to torque the nuts but very happy with the product and install.



by:
2023 Toyota Tacoma

The tracking process is great. Came in at the date specified and received a follow up email. Great service!



by:

Ordered for my son's '22 Tacoma, easy installation and fit as advertised.



by:

Extremely difficult to fish/thread the two bolts through the frame. Other than that, I think the hitch is well constructed and will be great.

just fine, it was easy to put on and has worked out great.



by:

The trailer hitch receiver worked perfectly. the installation instructions were easy to follow, and the the trailer hitch is of excellent quality.



by:

Placed the order and talked with a representative it was very helpful, received the order very quickly and everything was good. Thank you.



by:

It was a tight fit but in the end it fit perfect! This thing is heavy duty too. I couldn't have purchased anything better. I recently purchased a universal reese hitch and it was not working out at all. Thanks etrailer for the perfect hitch receiver!

Awesome



by:

Hitch is nice but it didn't come with the hardware needed to mount it to my truck. I have messaged etrailer about sending me the hardware and they have been kind about their mistake, but its a bit of a PITA with a big trip planned in a couple days.



by:

Held up very well, no rust, no problems whatsoever

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Toyota Tacoma
    You're correct, except for the fact that the # e98905 etrailer branded hitch uses a matte finish and the Curt # C13264 has a glossy finish, both hitches look alike and install in the same manner The Curt and etrailer brand have an identical 900 lbs tongue weight/6000 lbs towing capacity. The actual capacity of your truck will vary according to the engine, transmission and rear differential gearing, so you'll need to abide by whichever capacity is lower, be it the hitch or that of the vehicle...

  • How Can I Get The Most Payload Capacity Out Of My 2016 Toyota Tacoma?
    You are on the right track with calculating your payload. It sounds like you will be at about 875 lbs including fuel. There is no way to effectively increase your max payload rating. One suggestion I do have would be to install a trailer hitch like our etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98905. The hitch itself weighs only 35 lbs and is rated for up to 6,000 lbs towing. This should allow you to stay just under capacity. We are going to be pushing your truck near capacity, so anything we...
