Will the Draw-Tite Hitch Replace the Factory Hitch On a 2010 Toyota Tundra With Aftermarket Bumper


My 2010 Tundra has a factory hitch that supports the bumper. I want to upgrade to this heavier hitch. I know that this wont work with the factory bumper, but will it work if I replace the bumper with Westin 58-270715?


Expert Reply:

The Westin HDX Rear Bumper part # 58-270715 which is a fit for a 2010 Toyota Tundra does not retain the factory trailer hitch mounting points so you should in theory be able to mount the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 41935 in place of the factory trailer hitch. The frame attachment points will be the same.

The only issue I see is that the trailer hitch and rear bumper could come into contact due to the hitch being modeled after the factory bumper dimensions but there isn't a way to confirm nor deny this without test fitting the two together. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15398 hangs down further than the Draw-Tite hitch so that is what I recommend using instead.
