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.

I installed this hitch receiver on a '22 Tacoma and I'm absolutely impressed with etrailer, the buying process, and above all, the product itself. The build quality is seriously high and evident as soon as you get eyes on it. I have to admit, at purchase I was a little concerned about the comments in other reviews regarding the fish wire process. But I'm happy to report that here too I'm very impressed by how well the wire and overall bolting process worked for me. In total I had both bolts "fished" with less than five minutes needed for each of the two bolts. Taking my time with a ground installation I had finished the full install including torque checks in under an hour. If time were a crunch, 30-40 minutes on a ground install is realistic, even faster with a lift or pit. Great beastly product, great company, great experience. Easy 6 stars if an extra star were available.

I bought this trailer transition box for my brand new trailer cost me $1[XX] you know it's made in Mexico and on the yellow wire I wasn't getting no voltage when applied the brake everything else worked perfectly fine I spent a lot of time putting this garbage in I called up a Trader they gave me a pretty hard time ask me if I would put the thing in right really it's all Plug and Play they sent me another one I put it in and everything is working fine and they insisted that I sent it back to them it took me a couple hours to get back home needless to say the gas in my personal time this device that you sell from Mexico they didn't have a quality control program if this tells you anything I'm very unhappy customer I could have bought the same identical thing for 30 bucks at Walmart




by:

Quality built product and video on installation made it a whole lot easier to install.


Comments
Extremely well. Quality product and very pleased with its performance.
Neal B - 10/08/2022


by:

fishing nuts / bolts through the frame is a terrible design weld them in place.
the bolts are also to long and interfere with hitch pins. had to cut them.

quality and price were good at time of purchase.




by:

Looks great! A little tough to install but, I just prayed to Jesus to help and he did. Now I just have to get a bigger torque wrench mine only goes to 80ftlb




by:

Great fit and good quality. Would highly recommend this company




by:

I wanted to install this myself, but since you sent me an inferior installation product, it seems I'll have to get this installed by a professional. I'm sure the hitch will be fine once installed, but you guys know there is a bolt in the way inside the hollow tube pathway that prohibits the diy installation with your cheap fish wire kit. You need to come up with a better system for installation on Tacomas and update your video, too.


Comments
Sometimes it is a little difficult to fish the bolts through the frame, but I have never heard of the issue that a bolt was in the way, inhibiting this.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 01/25/2022


by:

Fishing bolts through bumper frame was close to impossible bolts seemed a little to long and there are bolts in frame that are in the way to get shims and bolts through.I’ll have to take somewhere to have installed professionally.seems like a heavy duty product otherwise


Comments
You mentioned that bolts seemed a little too long and it was tough to get the shims with the bolts through. I know on this vehicle that there are a few bolts that hang down from up top that can cause snags when moving the hardware through. If you want to give it another go, I have a video installation on a similar hitch for the 2020 Toyota Tacoma in the link below.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/15/2022


by:

Was very easy to install fits perfect. After reading reviews was little worried about the fishing of bolts being time consuming but got em fairly quickly. Only took about 10 minutes to get bolted on.




by:
2019 Toyota Tacoma

Great product, fit very snug. I have no mechanic experience and was able to install the hitch alone. The hardest part was getting the spacers in the bumper beam, I felt it took a little luck. Satisfied with the install and the overall look of the hitch.

2016 Toyota Tacoma

fits great. no problems installing


Comments
Excellent, no problems
-- comment by: - 08/05/2022


by:

Fishwire with the carriage bolt and square washers did not fit, used only the carriage bolts. Went up fine after that.




by:

This is a good hitch but it does take some skill to fish the bolts into the bumper frame to be able to mount the hitch. The instructions are of no use in fishing the bolts.




by:

A little time consuming putting on the fish wire and the two one and a half inch bolts but I got it figured out and the other bolts went up real fine it’s secured I’m pleased




by:

I originally ordered this hitch from [online]. One week delivery time, which turned into two, then order was lost. I then went on etrailer, ordered again. Similar price, also a week wait, no problem. How excited I was when it showed up 2 days early! Opened the package, looks like a simple installation. Will be pulling my trailer in no time. Thanks so much,




by:
Toyota Tacoma

Fits my 2022 Tacoma great! Easy install! Made much better than the Curt hitch I had on my old Tundra.




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.




by:

Very easy installation




by:

The product arrived in short order and fit my truck perfectly. Easy to follow instructions and a fairly easy install. The longest part was fishing two of the bolts through the frame, and even that only took about 20 minutes.




by:

Excellent product everything fe easy instructions took no time to assemble was speedy delivery. I will definitely buy from this company again.




by:

Sturdy and easy to install. It was truly a great cost savings over buying locally and having it installed.




by:

Item received very quickly and as described.
Those 1/2” bolts were a real pain to get fished through (don’t give up!), but it was smooth sailing after that.




by:
2016 Toyota Tacoma

Perfect fit




by:

Installation was pretty easy for this weekend warrior mechanic. The only challenge was aligning its last two holes with those in the frame as they were not 'perfectly" positioned.

  • Difference Between Curt and etrailer Trailer Hitch for 2020 Toyota Tacoma
    The main difference between the Curt # C13264 and the etrailer # e98905 hitch receivers lies in the superior matte black powder coat finish of the etrailer hitch versus the traditional glossy finish of the Curt hitch. I recommend # e98905 because the matte finish will hide dirt, scuffs and dings better, and many people just like the more rugged look of the matte black finish.
