Does 2-Wheel Drive and 4-Wheel Drive Affect Hitch Fitment on a 1979 Chevy C/K Model?


why do you list applications for 2wd and 4wd as the same? I have a hitch on a 2wd 1980 chevy half ton that wont fit my 1979 chevy 4wd because the shackle hangers are in the way.


Helpful Expert Reply:

I'm sorry to hear about your hitch! Hitch manufactures customize their hitches to fit particular years/makes/models of vehicles. In rare cases, the 4-wheel drive or 2-wheel drive style comes into play. With that being said, without knowing what particular hitch you have on your 1980 model Chevy C/K Series or on your 1979 Chevy C/K Series, all of the hitches we carry for both a 1980 and 1979 model Chevy C/K are based on bed length and bumper style.

The only exception to this rule is the Draw-Tite # 40050. This particular hitch only fits 2-wheel drive models of both 1980 and 1979 Chevy C/K pickups.

If you need a fit of a hitch on your pickup, please respond with the bed size on your truck and the bumper you have and I will be happy to find a hitch that works for you.
