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 a easy an install as I've ever had it took me longer to drop the spare tire than it did to bolt up the hitch and that includes clamping the rear bumper. It blends in with the bumpercolor great! Would absolutely recommend this and it showed up a day early



after a year I have used this almost constantly I am very satisfied with the solidness of the hitch it still looks new


Hitch appears to be similar in quality to more well known names. Instructions were easy to follow and took about 15 mins to install. The hitch receiver arrived with some scuffs, even though it was well packaged. No affect on the performance just odd since it's brand new. Time will tell if the finish holds up.

Im sorry to see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference. I have also sent this information over to our Customer Service Department for them to get into contact with you.



Solid product, finish is holding up well and I would purchase again.


Product is geeat. Got on your website to get install issues, except factory installer at Ford over tightened the 4 bolts and they were hard to get loose. I followed your instructions that came with hitch for torque setting. Thanks


Ordered on Sunday, arrived on Wednesday. Installation went just as shown in the video. I did by myself and used two 5 gallon buckets to hold the hitch while I bolted it up. I did have to loosen the spare tire and move it forward an inch or so so it wouldn’t rub on the hitch.


High quality unit that fit right in with no issues. Use a breaker bar with 1/2" head and 13/16" deep socket to easily achieve the 196 ft-lbs for the 4 bolts. That's all there is to it. Clamp the bumper, remove all 4 bolts, place hitch underneath, replace 4 bolts and torque to 196 ft-lbs - which is about a 2-handed, full body lean with a standard breaker bar that is about 12" long. I used red loctite on 2 of the 4 bolts and I could tell the difference so I recommend using the loctite - the 2 bolts with loctite felt smoother on the bar.


On in 15 minutes, delivered early. Very Happy!



Great, no problems. I haul trailers 2 or 3 times a week with this.

Ford Ranger

The hitch is as described and as expected. It went on my Ranger easier than expected. Four bolts and was a breeze. Is manufactured to accommodate the vehicle. It was also received a couple days earlier than expected or promised.
Thanks again for the good product and service.

2021 Ford Ranger

Package was full of staples where holes in the cardboard occur and taped together where the box was ripped. Contents were in excellent condition dispute the above issues


This is the 4th trailer hitch I have bought from etrailer, this one by far was the easiest to install. I was able to get it installed in 20 minutes on my own. The installation did not require me to take the whole bumper apart as I would have had to do if I purchased a trailer hitch from Ford.


Quality piece, thick gauge steel with strong neat welds. The matte finish powder coat has a slight texture to it that looks really great.

Greg G.


The hitch is really holding up well after one year of use. the powder coat finish still looks great with no rust.


Great hitch.Easy to install



No problem with the hitch.

@Robert Outstanding! We're glad to hear that your # e63ZR etrailer brand hitch is still working well for you!

2020 Ford Ranger

I ordered 2 days ago and installed it today. After watching the video the installation was very easy. I'm 67 years old and did it by myself in less that 20 minutes. I used two visegrips to hold the bumper on and a jack stand to hold up one end while I bolted the opposite end. The hardest part was trying to generate the 196 ft lbs to torque the bolts. GreT service with great products.

2023 Ford Ranger

Easy installation, worked out well.

2023 Ford Ranger

Very nice unit and easy to install

Ford Ranger

Trailer hitch fit the Ranger pickup and it is heavy enough to do its job. Good buy!


This item came just as described. I really like the powder coat flat finish. It installed just as described using the bolts already present on the truck. I installed this by myself on my garage floor in about 20 minutes.


Plug and Play, very nice!


Fits perfectly


I watched the video on how to install and it was perfect and the hitch fit perfect. It took me about 1/2 hr to install by myself. Would probably have taken a lot less tome if I would have had some hold it up while putting the bolds in
Thank you for your excellent video and perfect merchandise


I've ordered quite a bit for me trade over the years I never been disappointed good products and good customer service



Great no problems with it at all thats why I ordered for me trailer

    You shouldn't have any problems getting the install bolts of your 2019 Ford Ranger to break free so that you can install the etrailer hitch # e63ZR.

We do not have specific installers we've worked with in your area but typically it's best to find someone with a solid reputation...
