Trailer Hitch Receiver Options for 1989 Chevy K2500 Long Bed


I need options for my 89 k2500 with a 37 frame. It has tags on the frame with WF if that makes a difference. Its a 1989 k2500 long bed with regular bumper. About 6 deep with the built in hitch ball.


Expert Reply:

The best option for a trailer hitch receiver on your 1989 Chevy K2500 long bed is the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41524. I like this one over the other options because it is designed as a custom fit for your truck and the cross tube is mostly hidden. It has a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity.

Another option is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 37130, which has a larger 7,000 lb towing/700 lb tongue weight capacity, but is also a multi-fit hitch and has a cross tube that is going to be more visible. Also keep in mind neither of these will work if your truck is a Crew Cab.

I have added links to the instructions for both hitches for you to check out.
