How to Pick Out a Trailer Hitch for a 1985 Chevy Truck


What part number do I need for the trailer hitch receiver that fits a 1985 4x4 Silverado


Expert Reply:

That is going to depend on what style 1985 Chevy Silverado you have.

The Draw Tite part # 75034 will fit if you have 6 foot or 8 foot bed with standard or step bumper.

For a deep drop bumper you would need the # C13099, or for a cab and chassis # 13028 which has been confirmed to fit.

If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

For trailer wiring you would then want the # 118312.
