Recommended Trailer Hitch That Will Work With Full Size Spare on 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500


Will a 14108 Curt hitch fit my 2006 Silverado 2500HD and still allow my full size spare tire to fit behind it?


Expert Reply:

The # 14108 trailer hitch is not a fit for your Silverado but we do offer a hitch that will work for you.

I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 41944. This is a Class V hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. This is a bolt-on installation and requires no drilling into the frame when installing. This hitch is designed to work with full size spare tires that are mounted under the truck. I have attached a link to an installation video for this hitch on a 2006 Silverado you can check out.

If you plan on doing 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.
