Class 2 Exposed Black Rear Trailer Hitch without Insert (12291) by CURT®, No drilling required. The Weight Carrying Capacity is 3500 lbs, while the Tongue Weight is 350 lbs, and the Receiver Tube Opening Size is 1-1/4". These trailer hitches allow the use of equalizing hitches to transfer excess tongue weight to the front axle of the vehicle. You can also get a removable ball mount. This means the hitch ball and its ball mount can be removed and stowed when not trailering. A hitch receiver is also a handy place to mount a bicycle rack, cargo carrier or other receiver-mounted accessory. A receiver-mounted winch or step are good examples.
- Replaces factory bumper-mounted ball
- Allows use of receiver-mounted accessories
- Upgrade factory-mounted receivers to higher weight class
- Permits use of equalizing hitches
- Choose hidden or exposed receiver tube
- Installation kit included
If your vehicle already has a factory-mounted hitch receiver, it may not be rated to tow the trailer you’d like to. Bearing in mind the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating of your vehicle, you may wish to upgrade the OEM receiver with one of higher capacity. Choose between a "hidden" receiver that lurks right under the bumper, or a hitch receiver that sets lower to the ground and allows the use of a ball mount with less drop.121.95Brand: CURT Part Number: 12291 UPC: 612314014484

The hitch came well-wrapped. When you read the instructions and they suggest you clean, they mean you have to clean the hole. The better you do this, the easier it will be to install. And get some lock tight, red or blue. That's my advice to you.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

Good-looking hitch. Welds looked nice and surface/paint was nice and smooth. I recommend you go a ½ copper tube fitting brush to clean out the thread holes (or a similar small wire brush). Once I got the brush and cleaned out the holes in the frame, the installation went smooth. Iâ€™m pleased with my purchase.4 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?
