Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 1989 Chevy C/K Series Pickup


Im looking for a trailer system for a 1989 1 ton pickup truck which Im pretty sure you dont specifically make for that year. So my question is what is the distance from Center of fastening hole to Center of fastening hole?

We do have a custom fit hitch option for the 1989 Chevy C/K Series. I recommend Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 41938 if you have a standard or step bumper. The Draw-Tite hitch is rated for 12,000 lbs gross towing weight and will bolt up to the existing holes in the truck's frame.

If the truck has a roll pan bumper you have to use a Draw-Tite hitch part # 41522 or part # C15317 if you have a 10 inch deepdrop bumper by chance. I have attached a helpful article that shows the differences in bumpers for your reference.

I don't recommend trying to use a hitch that is not designed for the truck because it will not line up with the holes in the frame and drilling will be involved.
