How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander


Today we are going to install part number 13344 on our Chevrolet Uplander. All right, the first thing we need to do is go ahead and lower the exhaust and temporarily remove this body bracket here. At this point we can go ahead and hang the hitch on the vehicle and snug it down to the frame because we have to use the hitch as a template to drill the rest of the holes in the frame. All right, with the hitch in place we will go ahead and drill a pilot hole, and the other holes we have to drill out in the frame will be right here. We will do one on each side toward the rear of the vehicle. And on some models you do not have to drill out back here, but on this model we actually have a hole that lines up with the body mount - no, the body bracket - so we will just go ahead and use that one. The next thing we do is install a handle nut that goes into the side of the frame here. We will bring it to the direction we need to match it to the hole right here. And repeat for the other side.

Next we will reinstall our body bracket, going through the hitch to the existing well button in the frame. And now we will take these two bolts out and reinstall the exhaust bracket. All right, at this point we can go ahead and snug down all the bolts and then make sure the hitch is where we want it. You might have a little bit of movement left to right. And then we will go ahead and torque down the bolts. Now we give the bolts their final torque. All right, that covers install of part number 13344 from Curt.
