Specially designed for heavy-duty towing, this fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Ordered this part and was left in silence for 4 days. I called etrailer and was told the part had not shipped yet. I asked if there were a better or similar part. The representative helped me find a better part for comparable price. I was instructed to cancel the original part due to it not shipping yet and they would send out the new one. An hour later I received an email that the cancelled part had shipped, and I could no longer cancel the item, instead when it showed up to me I could send it back for $[XX] shipping that I pay.! day later the wrong part and the right part show up together and the shipping box is demolished and has bent ears at securing points. Parts this size andd weight should not be sent this way, poor planning on etrailer side.


The Good:
* The hitch is beefy, made
from heavy gauge steel with good looking welds.
* Straight-forward installation.

The Bad:
* The rearward mounting flanges were splayed out bit, so I had to both bend them back in a bit with a come-along as well as clearance the rivet holes.
* The hitch labels were already peeling upon delivery. I had to carefully peel them off fully, remove and clean the old adhesive residue, and re-glue with industrial rubber cement.
* The shipping box from was inadequate and not up to the task. The box was only single-corrugated, and there was no packing material like foam or cardboard dunnage to keep the hitch and accessories from tumbling about in the box. During shipping all the staples ripped free, and the shipper's OS&D department crudely taped the box up with two whole strips of tape, but then during the final leg of delivery they ripped and it arrived open. The result is the hitch arrived scratched and scuffed.

Final thoughts:
The hitch seems well-built and heavy duty. But it does hang a bit lower than I would prefer. Drilling the two rear-most holes took a while, and I had to stop to sharpen the bit a number of times, the steel is very hard. The forward holes were already present, but had to be enlarged. With the fuel tank installed it is tricky but can be done.
The ordering process was easy and turn-around was fast, but the packaging was terrible. If I was not in a rush I would have sent the hitch back due to the scratches. I spent $300+ so I expected the paint to look nice and to protect from rust.


Definitely a nice piece of hardware, it bolted right up.


I received the hitch yesterday and just got it mounted. I couldn't be happier with it, is about as stout and well built hitch as I've ever seen, thank you.



Am still glad that I went with the curt, I will be getting the same for the next f-350,450 or 550 that I get


My 2019 f450 chassis cab had an end of frame fuel tank that had to be lowered to gain access to tighten the forward hitch bolts. Two of six mounting holes had to be drilled. Marking the hole location was easy as the other four boltz held the hitch in position for marking.

A floor jack is useful in raising and lowering the jack and tank.

Strongly suggest starting project with as little fuel in tank as possible.

Im very happy with the hitch and how well it fits. It is very beefy and i dont expect any issues from it in service.

2001 Ford F-550 Cab and Chassis

Just installed this the other day on a 2001 Ford F-550 cab and chassis. There were factory holes already for the two front bolts so I only had to drill the two in the back. Make sure you have a nice, new drill bit as drilling up from the bottom on the frame can be a bit of a task and a sharp bit will lessen that burden.

The size of this receiver is impressive, looks very sturdy and MADE IN THE USA!


Put this on my Sterling AcTerra
went well. Air bag made me mount it a little farther back but it ain’t going anywhere. Also didn’t have to move my taillights then.


Quick delivery, great customer service!


Good product the best service

Ram 3500

So much stronger than the original hitch on a Mega cab 3500 DRW. You could see the original hitch bend with a heavy load attached. This new one is very strong and easy to install. Very happy with the upgrade. Worried it would sit too low to the ground but has not been an issue


amazing product and even better service> i was in a pinch on the road and Etrailer saved me big time.


Great Communication.


great fit on 2011 single wheel cab & chaasis F350. Super heavy duty and well made with a thick powder coat finish. Much more robust than other hitches I have used or seen. I have bought two other "Curt" hitches since this one and have been just as impressed. 5+ stars

2003 Ford F-550 Cab and Chassis

The trailer hitch was everything I expected. It was delivered quickly and all the hardware was included. I installed it on my F550. Nice quality hitch.

Sam S.


The trailer hitch worked put great and is still performing well. Thank you for the follow up.

2006 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis

It was good it bolted in just fine. the biggest thing was the stickers that towing capacity information is No good. Brand new I could just peel it off.
I would still buy again but a tag that would last for years would be better.


Very happy with overall product this is our 4th curt hitch


So this hitch you must drill new holes to mount, which I was aware of. Instructions describe that the 2 larger holes on the back must line up with 2 factory installed rivits, they did NOT line up with the rivits. After a phone call to Curt they knew of the issue. There is a certain combo Ford built of these trucks that the rivits were not in the pattern this hitch is made for. I had to drop the fuel tank, cut off 2 of the factory rivits and them clamp the receiver on and drill the new holes. Curt is aware of this issue, but the trucks built were this issue were a low production runs with a different fuel tank size. Receiver is great and seems well built, but kinda a pain to install


Looks good, excellent fit, very happy with this product. Best thing about it? etrailer customer service. Olivia did a terrific job. Found me the right product, took care of all the little details, and shipped the hitch out fast. Lots of companies have forgotten how important good customer service is, apparently etrailer remembers. Thanks Olivia!


It’s a good product but I knew that when I bought it. What made me write the review is the customer service with etrailer I can get a hitch or truck accessories anywhere I choose to shop here time and time again for quality of service not the hitch. This time around I had a bit of a problem and every person I spoke with was helpful and knowledgeable and they got it taken care of almost instantly. I think I spoke with 4 representatives total with this company 2 three email and 2 over the phone. Emails are professional polite and most importantly informative. Phone calls are just the same I can clearly understand everyone I spoke to. I don’t usually go out of my way to write reviews but they always impress me.

2003 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis

Very good quality, fast shipping, fit like a glove. I would recommend this to anyone.


Fit perfect

2008 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis

Hitch was easy to install and very beefy. I bought it to replace the stock hitch on a truck that frequently launches boats in salt water, so the stock hitch had rusted severely. This one seems to have a better finish, and is not exhibiting any rust after a year of use.

1999 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 Cab and Chassis

I am not sure where I sit. I received the product all taped up and packaged really sloppy. etrailer says it’s shipping company shipping company says they received it like that.

Anyway it came missing some pieces. The rep at etrailer was very helpful to get me those pieces. Instructions never made it to me so I hope it’s mounted righ.


We've purchased two of these to replace worn out receivers in our fleet.

Quality was awesome…installation was far more time consuming than the directions called for a few ford chassis with short wheel base and fuel tank on the rear requires lowering fuel tank to install…other than that it was fairly smooth
