Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Matte black, powder coated steel is durable and corrosion resistant and creates a rugged look.


This was listed as an "easy" install. This was NOT going to be an easy hitch to install - would have required removal of heat shields and dropping exhaust system down from the car to install. This would have also removed 3 inches of clearance from my car. In the end I returned this item for a different model.


Great, sturdy, solid hitch. A little difficult to install, not a simple job, the bumper hitch, etrailer has would be easier, but nice hitch for the money...


Is exactly as advertised. Heavy duty and installed as depicted.


Fairly easy install, great fit


E TRAILER is spot on every time. Great customer service. fast response time and always addresses any issues fast!

As for the hitch... fits as it should. No worries when you deal with


Fast and happy.

  • Best Hitch for Carrying Bike Rack on 2020 Subaru Ascent
    We offer two primary types of hitch for your 2020 Subaru Ascent. One installs so that the receiver tube sits up against the underside of he back bumper fascia with most of the hitch being visible from the rear of the vehicle. The other type would utilize the removable knockout in the bumper fascia and would be much more concealed. The knockout panel can be reinstalled when the hitch isn't in use. For the fully exposed type hitch I'd go with the etrailer brand Class III hitch, part # e35ZR....

  • What is the Difference Between the etrailer hitches e55ZR and e35ZR for My 2022 Subaru Ascent?
    There are some differences to consider between the etrailer hitches # e55ZR and # e35ZR. While both of these hitches have a maximum gross towing weight capacity of 5,000 pounds, they have different maximum tongue weight capacities. The # e55ZR has a 750-pound tongue weight capacity and the # e35ZR has a 675-pound tongue weight capacity. Another difference is the installation difficulty. For the # e55ZR, the installation takes longer because the hitch replaces the impact bar of the bumper...

  • 2020 Subaru Ascent etrailer Trailer Hitch Height and Ground Clearance
    We haven't had a chance to get the ground clearance measurements for the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e35ZR on a Subaru Ascent yet but when we installed the Curt equivalent, part # C13400, on a 2019 Ascent it measured 13-1/4" for the hitch height which would mean ground clearance would be in the ballpark of 11" when taking account for the 2" receiver and thickness of the metal. This should be about the same for your 2020 Subaru Ascent but there may be some variance depending on wheel/tire...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin And Clip For A 2"x2" Trailer Hitch On A 2022 Hyundai Palisade
    For your 2021 Subaru Ascent, with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e35ZR, I recommend using the Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock for etrailer Cargo Carriers # e99047. This is a locking hitch pin that can be keyed alike to match other etrailer branded locks, so you don't have to carry around a bunch of keys. A locking hitch pin is a much better option than a traditional pin and clip that increases security and theft prevention, however if you still wanted a traditional pin and...

  • Suggested Hitch Option for Carrying Bikes on 2022 Subaru Ascent
    We currently offer several different hitches for the 2022 Subaru Ascent. Two that are concealed that will be hidden behind the removable panel on the bumper when not in use, and two that sit below the rear bumper and will be fully visible from the rear. The Curt # C25VR and etrailer brand # e55ZR are completely identical except for the powder coat finish. The Curt uses a glossy powder coat, while the etrailer brand uses a matte finish. Since the hitch will be fully hidden behind the bumper...
