Best 2004 GMC Yukon XL Hitch Options

Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options available for the 2004 GMC Yukon XL. Now when looking up hitches for this vehicle, these are the top three that come up. We have our CURT Class 5, part number C15324. Then we have the two Class 3 hitches here. There's going to be a CURT, part number C13422, and the Draw-Tite, part number 75725. Now with our CURT Class 5, this is going to be for more of those heavy duty scenarios such as pulling trailers, things like that, while the two down here, the Class 3, that's going to be more for your recreational towing. Starting with the CURT Class 5 up at the top here, it's going to have a towing capacity of 16,000 pounds. That's how much weight it could actually pull.





2004 GMC Yukon XL Questions and Answers


  • Is Trailer Brake Controller Needed in 2004 GMC Yukon XL to Tow Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • You will need to install a trailer brake controller in your 2004 GMC Yukon XL in order to activate the electric drum brakes on your 20-foot Komfort tandem-axle trailer. Your truck is likely to have a factory 7-way trailer connector since you have the tow package, so all you'll need to install a brake controller like the reliable and easy-to-use Prodigy P2 # 90885 is a quick-connect wiring adapter # 3015-P. This wiring plugs in between the P2 and your under-dash connection port. Installation...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for a 2004 GMC Yukon XL and 7,000 lb Trailer
  • First, you would benefit from using weight distribution and sway control. Weight distribution should be used any time the trailer weighs at least 50 percent of the vehicle. Sway control will be very useful since the trailer is so heavy. If that trailer starts to sway it would make it difficult to keep the Yukon and trailer straight. Regarding a different trailer hitch, the hitch on your 2004 GMC Yukon XL has the capacity to tow your trailer when loaded and ready to tow if you are at...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali XL and Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • I did some checking and your 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali has a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 8,000 pounds. This means that the maximum tongue weight capacity for the vehicle is 800 pounds. And this is assuming no passengers or cargo in the vehicle (which decreases the capacity). If at all possible I recommend reducing the tongue weight of the trailer by moving weight towards the back of the trailer. GM recommends the use of weight distribution on the trailer and not suspension...

  • Weight Distribution Carrying Case Recommendation
  • The Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17500 that you referenced should have no problem fitting in the Classic Accessories Tow Bar and Weight Distribution Tote # CA80113 that you also referenced. The WD system that is used in the product pics for the tote is a Reese system that is very similar in size as the Curt. In fact the frame brackets may actually be smaller. You would not need to remove the hitch ball.

  • Selecting Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution/Sway Prevention System for Travel Trailer
  • The Reese Strait-Line weight distribution/sway control systems such as the # RP66083 actually prevent trailer sway from starting in the first place, rather than try to correct it once the problem has started. We consider them to be the superior choice in WD systems. The key to matching a Strait-Line to your set-up is knowing your trailer's fully-loaded TW just as it will be when you head out on the road: you need to measure the TW when the trailer is fully loaded with water, propane,...

  • Hydraulic Trailer Brakes Stay Locked Up on Boat Trailer
  • The first thing I would do is bleed the brake system. I have had brakes do strange things until the system was properly bled. There could also be a problem with the push rod or other internal component that is not moving back into place after actuated. You may need to replace the push rood, # 85852, and/or the shock # 85830. If you bench bleed the actuator then you need to make sure that it is fully assembled as if it were on the trailer ready to go. Otherwise it will not push fluid...

  • Swagman XP vs. Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack Comparison
  • I would recommend the Swagman Trailhead part # S63380 for you because this rack has two arms instead of one like the Swagman XP # S64940 which will make carrying bikes easier and more stable. The Trailhead also has anti-sway cradles designed to prevent the bikes from moving around in the rack which will help prevent them from contacting each other. I attached a review video for both racks for you to check out as well. Both racks are confirmed to work at the back of an RV. If you plan...

  • Will the Putco PURE Premium LED Dome-Light Kit Dim with Factory Dimmer When Used
  • I spoke with my contact at Putco and found that the lights in the Putco PURE Premium LED Dome-Light Kit, item # P980001, will either be on or off once the LED lights are installed. This is due to the fact that only a very small amount of voltage is needed to power the dome lights.

  • Do K-Source Custom Snap-On Towing Mirrors # KS80800 Fit 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali
  • Yes, the K-Source Custom Snap-On Towing Mirrors, part # KS80800, will fit your 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali with either heated electric mirrors or manual mirrors. It will not fit on OEM extendable mirrors, OEM full chrome mirrors, or telescoping mirrors. These K-Source towing mirrors snap into place on your stock mirrors without tools and can be removed quickly for parking in tight spaces. They do not interfere with your adjustments to the factory mirror. I have linked a video showing...

  • Will Timbren Jounce Springs # TGMRG25C Fit 2004 GMC Yukon XL with Air Ride
  • The Timbren Jounce Springs # TGMRG25C are a fit for the 2004 GMC Yukon 1500 XL with Air Ride as long as it is the 4-wheel-drive version. These bolt on without drilling in place of the factory bump-stops. They work independently and offer progressive resistance as the load on them increases. I linked an install video for you. If you have the 2-wheel-drive version then instead you'll use part # TGMRYS4.

  • Will the SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs Kit # SSR-204-40 fit a 2004 Yukon Denali XL
  • As long as your 2004 GMC Yukon Denali XL is a 1500 the SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs Kit # SSR-204-40 you referenced would work for you. If you have a 2500 you would want a Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRSB4S as this is a similar system that will work on a 2500.

  • Replacement Lock Core and Keys Recommendation for an Older Thule Mountaineer

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 GMC Yukon XL 1500
  • Since your vehicle is a 1500 model 2004 GMC Yukon XL you will want the # 65023. This hitch is for vehicles with amber turn signals and tow hooks just like what you have so it should work well for you. One of the holes to install this hitch will need to be drilled.

  • Hitch Carrier Recommendation for Kymco People Scooter on 2004 GMC Yukon XL
  • Based on my research, the Kymco People Scooters can weigh anywhere between 200 to almost 400 pounds. One of our most popular motorcycle carriers is the Rage PowerSport Aluminum Double Motorcycle Carrier # AMC6002. This carrier has a weight capacity of 600 pounds, but will be limited to the capacity of the trailer hitch or vehicle. A 2 inch hitch receiver is needed for this carrier, and it is only recommended for use on hitches with a 500 pound tongue weight capacity or greater. I recommend...

  • Wiring Harness Needed to Install Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller on 2004 GMC Yukon XL
  • If your 2004 GMC Yukon 1500 already has a factory 7-way installed, you will just need the Tekonsha Wiring Adapter # 3015-P to install your Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller # 39510. One end of the adapter will simply plug into the brake controller and the other end will plug directly into the junction box behind the dash of your Yukon XL. I have attached some video demonstrations of this harness for your review.

  • Installing the E-Track Wood Beam Socket For Standard Lumber
  • Once the E-Track Wood Beam Socket for Standard 2" Lumber - Qty 1 # 59149 has a beam screwed in at both ends, it cannot be removed without unscrewing the wood beam. The beam would need to be lifted straight up and out of the hanger to allow movement and then be screwed back in place in its new location. You will be able to use the same piece of lumber cut to width over and over again, but it will need to be removed to change location of the hangers in the track.

  • Recommended Cable Tire Chains And Tensioners For 305/40-22 Tires
  • The tire chains I recommend for your 305/40-22 tires are part # PW2033C. These are a low profile cable chain that will fit your tires. These are Class S compatible. We unfortunately do not offer any tire chains with rim protection for your size tires, but the cable chains I mentioned would work. You may want to consider using rubber tensioners like part # TCMA2 with the chains so there is less movement when the chains are installed.
