Does Skid Plate on 2016 GMC Canyon Need to be Trimmed to Install Draw-Tite Front Hitch


Hello. Do you need to trim the metal skid plate for the Draw-Tite similar to the Curt or is that not required? No mention of that in the Draw-Tite Installation notes.


Expert Reply:

Good question, and no, you do not need to trim the front metal skid plate on your 2016 GMC Canyon to install the Draw-Tite front hitch that fits, which is the following part number:

- Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65071

The only trimming that is needed on your '16 Canyon to install the # 65071 is a small 3-1/4" x 3" cut out of the lower air dam fascia.
