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.

The hitch itself is five star. However, two issues came up during install that made things difficult.

First, the hitch kit did not include hardware to relocate the carbon canister box on the driver side of the hitch. The hitch could not be installed without moving this box. A longer bolt was provided, but this did not make the carbon box secure. I was able to partially thread the longer bolt on the front of the box, but there was no room to secure the rear of the box at all. My van is a 2021 model, so maybe this issue is different for other model years.

Second, the 0.5” x 10” slit to be cut in the underbody panel was not the location described in the included directions. It actually needed to be 0.5” x 14” and about 2” different location than described. The point of reference bolt hole in the diagram was likely in a different spot for my 2021 model compared to the vehicle used for creating directions.



by:

The product was exactly as described. It seems to be of very high quality and still looks great. This is probably the 5th hitch I have purchased from this site and all have been excellent

Following the video made it look easy but it only showed instructions on drivers side. When it came to the passenger side, that was time consuming and bruising. Now I know why the video didn’t include that side. But, I did get it put on with vehicle on the ground in 4 -1/2 hours. I’m 80 years old and it was 90 degrees outside. I’m okay. It looks good on vehicle.

It cost us only $100 to have our regular mechanic mount the receiver on our Chrysler Pacifica van, even though the van isn't rated for towing. The receiver works perfectly with the Thule e-bike hitch rack we also bought from etrailer.



by:
2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The trailer hitch shipped very quick. I was nervous to install it but the instructions were very spot on! They sent an installation guide for our specific vehicle and made it easy to follow. It mounted perfect and is going to work great! Very happy with everything!



by:
2023 Chrysler Pacifica

A few "mistakes" in the installation manual. About 2.5 hours total install time was needed to install this, which includes making some minor adjustments to the cannister and more trim needed (than what the manual said).



by:
Chrysler Pacifica

Think this is the fourth hitch we have purchased from you and all four have fit and performed perfectly. Your customer service personnel and prompt actions have been great. Thank you. The latest for our new Pacifica was more difficult due to the panels covering the bottom of the vehicle however your videos helped in that.



by:
2019 Chrysler Pacifica

Installation went well and video directions certainly helped.



by:
2017 Chrysler Pacifica

After paying returns shipping for the wrong product. This one fit well and the instructions were easy to follow for installation. Highly recommend the video the company links to the order.

My wife wanted this receiver hitch installed on her Chrysler Pacifica for our bike rack, so we can travel with our bikes. We installed it in a few hours without a lift, but backed up on ramps.
The trailer hitch is great. The diagram for cutting the existing dust cover was very inaccurate. Installation is definitely a two-person job, but not difficult



by:

I picked Etrailer hitch because they had a simple install video where I able to see the hitch on the actual vehicle. I trusted the product because it was their own. I easily even reached an actual person when I had a question. I have only used the hitch to haul bikes



by:

Hitch has worked great, glad I got it.



by:

You make great products and furnish exceptional customer support. Twenty stars if I had them!



by:

Product fit perfectly for my 2021 Chrysler Pacifica. Instructions were a bit difficult to understand but the video provided through your website helped greatly! Hitch receiver worked well with our bike rack for our ebikes.



by:

Trailer hitch is great quality and has enabled many fun family trips and bike adventures. On top of that the instruction videos and customer service is top notch, etrailer has more than earned my repeat business.



by:

I had reservations about putting a class 3 hitch on,by myself,because of the weight. But with the help with {online}. I was able to do it myself.



by:

Hitch Worked well last summer, basically never used fall or winter. Hitch still looks nice as opposed to the curt unit on last car that began peeling and surface rusting after one winter (New England, dirt road, salt and other melting agents).



by:
Chrysler Pacifica

Quality part, detailed instructions, so-so easy of installation (due to application on the Pacifica). Captured bolts are a pain, but that was only on one side if I remember correctly. I bought the hitch to hold a bike rack and luggage carrier, not for a trailer.



by:

Solid and good paint job. Went in with no problems. Followed instructions that came with the hitch and watched the video. Pic is with a bike rack mounted.



by:
2022 Chrysler Pacifica

Shipping promptly. The installation instructions/video were for gas and weren't exactly for a hybrid but they addressed and made things relatively easy for someone that is handy. Very pleased!!! This is my 3rd hitch I've installed over the years.

36 hr delivery is faater than our mail< br>L

  • Parts Needed to Tow Trailer with 2017 Chrysler Pacifica without Tow Package
    In order to tow a trailer with your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica you will need a trailer hitch, wiring harness, and ball mount/hitch ball combo. Based on my research the factory tow package can vary a bit depending on what "group" is selected but for the Pacifica it generally consists of a trailer hitch, wiring connector, upgraded alternator, and a heavy-duty radiator. The towing capacity also differs between the two options, as the Pacifica lists a 3,600 pound capacity with the package and a...

  • Recommended Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
    Thanks! The best hitch for a 2021 Pacifica Hybrid is going to be the etrailer Hitch item # e98903. This is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver that will give you the most capacity for hauling a bike rack. It is custom fit and bolts to your minivan with included hardware. I have linked an installation video below and attached a couple of pictures so you can see what this hitch looks like once installed.

    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98903 which is an excellent easy to install, bolt-on option. Then for a swing-away 4-bike rack I recommend the Thule Apex Swing XT 4 Bike Rack part # TH9027XT as our best option. It has lock for security and it comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin. This combo will work very well together and allow for full access into the hitch without issue. In regards to installation, these are really...

    The distance from the bottom of the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98903 to the ground on a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is going to be around 11" give or take as this can vary slightly by vehicle.

  • Recommendation for Trailer Hitch Receiver on Chrysler Pacifica 2020
    There are a few things to consider when comparing the Curt # C13383 and etrailer # e98903 Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers on your Chrysler Pacifica, but I recommend the Draw-Tite. First, is TW and GTW capacities; the Curt has 400 lbs. TW and 4,000 lbs. GTW while the Draw-Tite has 675 lbs. TW and 4,500 lbs. GTW. You want to consult your Pacifica's owner's manual to check its capacities, but the Draw-Tite gives you the advantage here with its higher abilities. Second,...

I can give you an idea of what that will look like, but you will need to check the weight capacities of the products that you have for the definite answer. For example, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98903 has a tongue weight rating of 400 lbs.,...

  • 4-Bike Rack Solution For 2020 Chrysler Pacifica
    To carry 4 bikes with a vehicle like your 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will unfortunately require a hitch installed as there isn't a truck rack that would allow you to carry that many bikes. So I know that's not what you wanted to hear but the hitches that fit your vehicle like the etrailer # e98903 do not require drilling or any permanent modification so you could easily remove the hitch if you felt the warranty was in question. Also worth noting is that there is the Magnuson Moss act...

So a 3,500 lb trailer would be safe to tow with your Pacifica that has a 3,600 lb towing capacity.

This is the Curt Class II # C12180, unfortunately.

  • Troubleshooting Installation Alignment on etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
    The issue you are having with the # e98903 hitch holes not lining up correctly on your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is likely due to the hitch being bent. Sometimes a hitch gets slightly bent during shipping, which may result in misalignment during installation. I would inspect the hitch and make sure there are no cracks, chipped paint, or stress marks. These are signs that the hitch may have flexed enough to be considered unsafe and should be replaced. Assuming that is not the case, the trailer...

The ground clearance will vary by vehicle but when we installed this on a 2020 Hybrid the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube was 13", you can subtract about 2-1/4" to get the distance from the ground to the bottom of the receiver tube which will give you about 10-3/4".

  • Can Kuat NV Bike Rack Fit Draw Tite Hitch for 2021 Chrysler Pacifica when Folded Up
    When we installed the etrailer hitch part # e98903 on a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica like yours we found that it measured 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point on the rear bumper. This will easily allow a Kuat NV bike rack part # NV22G to fold up as this bike rack has 7 inches from the pin hole center to the nearest portion of the rack when folded up. This means you'd have 2 inches of clearance to spare.

    A great bike rack to carry two bikes on the Chrysler is a hitch mount rack like the Thule Camber # TH9058. Hitch mount bike racks are much more stable and secure than a trunk mount and not as difficult to use as a roof mount. A trunk mount will have to be removed whenever you want to access the back of the Pacifica, and it can be pretty challenging to get bikes on and off the roof.

    Good news! Installing a trailer hitch like the etrailer # e98903 on your 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will not affect the operation of the hands free liftgate feature on your vehicle. You'll simply slowly kick your foot to either side of the hitch receiver to open the rear cargo hatch in the same manner that you normally would. If you're going to be towing a trailer at all with your 2020 Pacifica Hybrid you'll need a wiring harness, ball mount and hitch ball to complete your towing setup....
