Is Removal of Step Bumper or Spare Tire Required For Hitch Installation on a 2006 Dodge Sprinter Van


2006 Dodge Sprinter Van, 10 passenger, 170 Does your recommended hitch require removal of spare tire or step bumper?


Expert Reply:

I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite, and he said that as long as your Sprinter frame is 41 inches wide outside to outside and the wheel base is more than 118 inches long, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, item # 75210, will fit your 2006 Dodge Sprinter Van.

You will not need to remove the spare tire for installation of the hitch. The factory step bumper will be re-attached at original position with fasteners provided with hitch.

I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to review.

You may want to consider the following items to complete your towing setup: Ball Mount Kit, item # 989900
Wiring, # 119179KIT without tow package, # 118381 with tow package
Hitch Lock, item # e98880
