How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Infiniti QX60


Today on our 2014 Infinity QX60, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit trailer hitch receiver offering the 2 inch x 2 inch receiver tube opening. It's part number is 76031. Here's what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, from the connection points here at the frame, it's going to come in slightly before we actually see the receiver tube come out underneath the rear fascia here. We've got the round tube. Here in the middle is our receiver tube opening.

It's going to make it a very, very versatile hitch. This is going to work out great for your bike racks, for your cargo carriers. It's going to work out really well for towing needs. It's probably the most popular hitch on the market.

You'll see our safety chain connection points here along the bottom. Plenty of room in there. It's a nice large open hole. Whatever type of safety chain you have shouldn't be a problem getting connected there. When it comes to securing all of our items, you can see we've got two holes.

We want to use the one that's closest to the front of the vehicle for securing anything. It's the larger one 5/8 of an inch in diameter. As you can see, it looks like there's plenty of room around that for whatever accessory you might choose, whether it's just the pin and clip, maybe an anti-rattle bolt, locking hitch pin, something like that, should have plenty of room. One option for that would be the J-pin stabilization system, that's the only time that this smaller hole will be used. Now here you'll see there's a tab that's been welded on the hitch.

It's got three pre-drilled holes in it. That's going to allow for easy wiring attachment. The typical four pole or typical wiring on this vehicle is going to be outside. Using part number 18144, you would be able to secure your four pole off right here, or even just use the hole to zip tie it off and keep it from bouncing down the road. Now the hitch is going to offer a 900 pound tongue weight rating. That would be the maximum downward force that we can put here at the receiver tube opening. It gives us a 6,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. That would be the total weight of our trailer and anything that we we're to load up on it. It is also rated for use with weight distribution. The ratings are going to stay the same, 900 for the tongue weight rating, 6,000 for the gross trailer weight rating. Now of course, you do want to check the owner's manual on your QX60, see what it's tow ratings are and go off of whichever of those are the lowest. Now a few measurements that are helpful in selecting your ball mount, bike rack, or hitch cargo carrier, will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. We've got about 14 inches. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our bumper, it's about 2-1/4. To begin our installation, we need to remove the tow hook that's going to be located here on the driver's side. We've got four bolts. Two of them go from the bottom up into the frame, 18 millimeter socket is what we need. Then we've got two more here on the side. These also go into the frame but they go in from the outside in. Now this, and the hardware, we can return to our customer. Now we're going to use the same attachment points on both sides here. We're going to use the holes closes to the inside of the frame rail. We've got one, two, and three. Again, those are in the same spot. We'll use a little spray lubricant and part number 814092, get those threads cleaned out so when we raise our hitch, our bolts will thread in nicely. Now with the help of an extra set of hands, we'll get our hitch raised up into position. We're going to be securing it using the provided hardware. It's going to be a bolt with a flat washer and lock washer on it. We want to get one started one each side here and that will hold our hitch in position while we get the rest of them in place. Now we'll take just a quick look. We want to just make sure our hitch is centered with our vehicle and we can start snugging down that hardware. Now if we look in our instructions, we'll find our torque specifications. We need to go down and torque each bolt down appropriately. Now with everything torqued down properly, that's going to complete our installation of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Custom Fit Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76031 on our 2014 Infinity QX60.
