Fit of Curt 2-Inch Bumper-Mount Hitch E-3S on Step Bumper of 2011 Toyota Tacoma


Hi, the outside holes on my rear step bumper are precisely 8inch on centre. It looks from the photos that there is some play in the holes on the 3S, being 8 3/4inch Is there enough play without having to enlarge the existing holes in my bumper? Thanks.

I got a sample of the Curt 2-Inch Bumper-Mount Hitch # E-3S from our warehouse so I could re-check the size and spacing of the mounting holes. The larger oval holes that accept the 3/4-inch hex bolts measure 3/4-inch x 1-1/4-inch. Their two outside edges are 9-3/4-inches apart and their two inside edges are spaced at 7-1/4-inches apart. This means you should have enough bolt clearance with your bumper's 8-inch center-to-center hole spacing. Those holes will need to be large enough to accept the two included 3/4-inch coarse-thread hex bolts.

I have added these dimensions and others to the linked photo.
