How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Toyota Tundra


Today on our 2013 Toyota Tundra well be installing the Drawtite Ultra frame hitch part #: 41935. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next, well go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is two inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 18 and a quarter inches. This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a ball mount, a bike rack or a cargo carrier.

Now lets go ahead with the installation. First well need to remove the angle brackets that are located on the inside of the frame rail near the bumper on both sides. To remove the brackets there are a total of four fasteners for each. Well go ahead and remove them now. Two 12 millimeter fasteners and two 14 millimeter fasteners.

Now well go ahead and set the brackets aside as they will not be reinstalled, however we will be reusing the hardware. Our forward attachment points will be here. On the fourteen millimeter bracket well take the bolt and itll go through the hitch, through the frame and then get secured with a flat washer, split-lock washer and nut. The 12 millimeter bolt will get a conical tooth washer and then reinstalled into the weld nut. For our forward attachment points well be using the new 14 millimeter bolt along with a split lock washer and two blocks.

One block will get sandwiched between the hitch and the frame. Note, each process we do on one side will get repeated identically on the opposite side. Now with all of our fasteners installed well go ahead and tighten them down. Next well torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now, with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications thatll complete the install of the Drawtite Ultra frame hitch part #: 41935 on our 2013 Toyota Tundra..
