How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer


Today on this 2000 Chevrolet Blazer we are going to be installing part number 36244 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to Hidden Hitch part number 90183. We are going to go ahead and show you the mounting locations for our hitch. Its going to be the two factory bumper bolts that are holding your bumper in position, as well as the larger oval hole near the rear of the vehicle. It is going to be the same on the passenger side as well. :26

What we need to go ahead and do is remove these bolt brackets on both sides that is holding on our bumper and we are going to put new hardware in that position. We are going to go ahead and spray WD-40 lubricant on our bolts here since it is an older vehicle. It will help us get our hardware off. In order to get the top bolt removed from the bracket up here we are going to take loose the bumper support bar and move it in so we can get a wrench on there to loosen up our nut. 1:00

Now that we have removed the stock bolts, we are going to go ahead and put our hitch up into position. It is probably best to have a second set of hands to help you hold it up while we position our blocks and carriage bolts into our mounting locations. Now that we have all our hardware in position, we are going to tighten and torque the bolts as specified in the instructions. Now that our hitch is tightened and torqued down we are going to go ahead and reposition our bumper support bars. 1:42

Alright now we are going to take a couple measurements for you. From the center of the hitch pin hole, out to the edge of the bumper is approximately 3-1/2inches. From the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening measures about approximately 16-1/2 inches. That will complete the install of part number 36244 from Draw-Tite on this 2000 Chevrolet Blazer.

hehe you guys are so awesome! Just bought a 2000 Blazer for a towing vehicle. Imagine how pleased I am to see this video. However, I do not have the means to lift the car that high, so should I have it done professionally?Also, how much should I expect to pay? I can purchase all of the parts myself, just pay for installation. I am in Los Angeles.Thank you.

You don't have to have a lift in order to the install the hitch. We have them here because we do so many of them and it makes it easier and faster and makes it possible to video the installation. In most cases a floor jack and jack stands are all that is needed to get enough space under the vehicle. With many trucks and SUV's they can be left on the ground, and I think that would be the case on your Blazer. Just have a second set of hands to help you hold it into place while you get the hardware started. Most auto parts stores will rent out a torque wrench for a deposit if you don't have one at home.
