Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Infiniti JX35 for Towing Sea Doo Trailer


Hello, I have a 2013 JX35 SUV. I see the CURT is much more Hidden, than the Draw-Tite. I also notice I DO have to CUT the center underside of the bumper to allow for the Square Trailer-Hitch Receiver to fit in place. I am only towing a Medium Size 1998 SEADOO GSX Limited Jet Ski, so I do not need a huge amount of towing capability.Based on this, I am GUESSING the CURT Trailer Hitch may be the BETTER Choice between the 2 Hitches, basically because it is HIDDEN Better and look asthetically Better as I wont see the big tubing hanging from the Bumper? Please Confirm YOUR Suggestions Please? Also, I assume the Wiring is Fine with either one. I DO Like the DRAW TITE having the ability to Mount the Wiring Harness to the Hitch, and it is ready at all times. However, I only use the SEADOO 4-6 times a year in the summer, so that isnt a huge deal. Anything else I should be aware of, please advise. I appreciate it I HOPE my Install goes Off WITHOUT a HITCH:0 : :

For your 2013 Inifiniti JX35 the Curt hitch part # C13126 is what I would recommend. Like you said it's much more hidden so it's easier on the eyes. It's also priced a little better as well and has more than enough capacity for your Sea Doo and trailer.

For trailer wiring I prefer the Tekonsha kits as they are more reliable than the Curt's. So for that the # 119190KIT would be what you need. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well on a vehicle just like yours down below.

Since 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.
