How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2014 GMC Terrain

Speaker 1: Today on this 2014 GMC Terrain, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class 111 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76028. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. One of the great features about this hitch is that we have plenty of clearance around our receiver opening, making this a great hitch to use with bike racks and cargo carriers. You won't have to worry about any interference, really.On the side of our receiver, you'll find two pinholes, the larger diameter one, closest to the front of the vehicle, that's our industry standard 5/8" diameter hitch pinhole, secure any of our hitch mounted accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip separately on our website, as part number PC3.Closer to the rear, that is a J-pin stabilization hole. What that does is take away the annoying shake, play and rattle out of what is inserted in your receiver.

We have one of those available separately on our website as well.On the end of our receiver you'll find this nice collar that's welded on, and this helps reinforce the strength of our receiver opening and also gives us a nice finished look. Welded onto the bottom of our receiver are our rolled steel safety chain loops. What's great about these, is that even if you have a large diameter hooks as this one, you can still clip on really easily and clip off easily as well, too.This hitch features a 675 lb. max tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down, and a 4,500 lb. max gross trailer rating, which is the amount you can pull.

It does support the use of weight distribution, but when you're using that with your trailer, the numbers don't change. They stay the same.Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you may need, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. You're looking at about 14" from the ground to the top of the 2" receiver opening and about 4" from the center of the hitch pinhole, to the rear most part of the back bumper.Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. To begin our install, we'll be at the back of our vehicle, and if we add this fascia door, we need to remove it. In order to do that, we'll just grab it and pull down.You may see well nuts in these round holes.

If you don't see well nuts there, we'll take one of your fish wires, go through that hole, and you'll run it out the bumper beam on the other side. On that fish wire, we'll place one of our small blocks on the wire, stick it on the bumper beam, and we'll thread on one of our carriage bolts. We'll stick that inside the bumper beam, and then we'll pull the bolt through. We'll leave our pull wire attached for the time being.Now on the side of our frame rails, we have the oval holes. We'll take another pull wire, our large spacer block and a carriage bolt.

We'll set the carriage bolt inside the frame and the large lock will go next, and we'll pull the bolt through. We'll repeat the same process for the other side of the vehicle.Now we'll take a wire brush and some spray lubricant and clean out our well nuts that are on the side edge of our frame on both sides. You can pick up one of these wire brushes on our website, as part number 81492. We're going to do this and make sure we get all the rust and loose dirt and debris out of those well nuts.Now, with an extra set of hands, we'll take our hitch and we'll feed our pull wires through the corresponding holes, and we'll go ahead and raise it into position. We'll remove our pull wires now, and place on one of our conical tooth washers with the teeth facing up towards the hitch, and we'll thread on a nut. This'll hold our hitch in place. We'll do the ones in our bumper beam as well. Now we'll install our bolts into the well nuts on the side of the frame.Now we'll tighten down the hardware. Now we'll torque all of our hardware. The amount's specified in the instructions.That completes our look at, and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class 111 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76028, on this 2014 GMC Terrain.
