*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2009-chrysler-town-and-country.aspx Today we are going to be installing Hidden Hitch part number 87451 on a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country. OK, we are underneath the vehicle and we are looking at the passengers side frame rail. As you can see, the exhaust is in the way of right where we are going to need to get the hitch up into position, so the first thing we are going to need to do is go ahead and lower it down. To do that, we are going to take it off of its main hanger, which is right here. And now, with the exhaust down, I can kind of pull it out of the way. You can see here above the exhaust here we have got one, two existing bolts. We are going to remove those and actually reuse those for the installation. Looking at the drivers side, we are actually going to be using three attaching points.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-1990-ford-f150.aspx Today on this 1990 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number 14001 from Curt. One of our first steps this involves is we have to lower our spare tire a little bit to get it out of the way. Sometimes this hanger gets in the way. What you have to do is test it. We will go ahead and put the hitch up. Clamp it into position. Mark our holes, and drill out the holes in the frame. Clamping this up into position can be a little bit of a bear so it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands involved. And you see here we have got our hitch here clamped into position. What we will do next is block our holes where it is going to be drilled. We are going to be drilling here, here, and here. We will start off with the pilot hole about a 1/ 4 inch the way up to a 1/ 2 inch. We have got our holes drilled out on the passenger side here.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2006-toyota-highlander-hybrid.aspx Today on this 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, we are going to install part number V81310 from Valley. The first step we need to do is go ahead and get the frame ready to install the hitch. That means we have got to take down this tie down bracket here and take out the little plugs that cover up the holes. The hitch is going to install at this bolt hole and these two bolt holes here that we just uncovered. Looking at the driver side, it is going to use these three existing holes also. But since these are exposed to the elements, we are going to take some time out to clean out the threads so we can run the bolts in and out.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-Install-2009-Pontiac-Solstice.aspx Today on a 2009 Pontiac Solstice we are going to install part number 11119 from Curt. First we will go ahead and show you where the hitch will mount up onto the frame. As you can see there is an oval hole off to the left-hand side. The hardware is going to use that existing hole to attach the hitch to. However o n some models there is two existing holes, if the second additional hole is not already drilled in the frame you will need to drill it out yourself. As shown here this is the drivers side which is identical to the passenger side.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2006-chevy-silverado.aspx Today we are going to install part number 13322 from Curt, and we are going to install this on a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. Looking at the passengers side, we are going to show you where the hitch mounts up. It is going to mount in this place right here, where the bolt is. Also, it will use this factory hole right here, and also it will use two holes in the bumper. We did a test fit on the hitch to make sure it clears the spare tire and if it does not, all you have got to do is lower the spare tire a little bit and move it out of the way. Next we will go ahead and just take off this rear bolt here - we will do one on each side - and then we can start installing the hitch.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2002-toyota-rav4.aspx On this 2002 Toyota Rav 4, were going to install part number 75125 from Drawtite. The first step involved is to take down this tie down bracket. We will show you where the hitch is going to mount up in the frame. It is going to use these two existing studed holes in the frame. On the passenger side it is going to be identical. And what is nice about this is that the bolts in there are relatively easy to clean out. On the other side though there is not a tie down bracket take a few moments to clean out those threads over there. We will work on that next. :28

*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-Install-2009-Dodge-Caliber.aspx Today on this 2009 Dodge Caliber we will be installing Hidden Hitch part number 60832. This installation will also apply for Draw-Tite part number 24769. We are underneath the vehicle and we are actually looking at the driver side frame rail. You can see here on the side of the frame we have got two existing holes. Those are going to provide our attaching points on both sides of the vehicle here. What we are going to be using are the long 5/ 8 bolts that are provided with our installation kit. There is actually a cushioning inside of these holes here that will allow us to slide these bolts all the way through. So what we are going to do is just slide those in and what we want to do is leave them flush with the frame rail here because the hitch is actually going to slide up on the inboard side here.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-Install-2006-Hyundai-Elantra.aspx Today we are going to install part number 24703 from Draw-Tite, and we are going to install this hitch on a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. All right, looking on the bottom of the vehicle, looking up on the passengers side, you will see the bolt that is in the frame the hitch will attach at that point right there. This hitch does not come with new bolts to replace the existing factory bolts. It will be just like that on the passengers side and on the drivers side. We are also going to use the center tow loop on the trunk pan here, too. We will use that for an attachment point.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-install-2004-Nissan-Xterra.aspx Today we are going to be installing Curt hitch part number 13183 on a 2004 Nissan Xterra. OK, we are underneath the vehicle, and the first thing you want to do is to go ahead and remove the spare tire to get it out of the way. Taking a look at the passengers side frame rail here, you can see we have got one, two, three existing holes here at the bottom of the frame. Those are going to provide our attaching points on both sides of the vehicle. With the installation kit, you do have this long plate that it comes with, one for each side of the vehicle. One end has a flat edge the other end has a rounded edge. The rounded edge is the part that actually needs to go inside the frame. The flat edge will be the one toward the bumper. We will just lay that in there and align it over the existing holes.

*******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2008-chrysler-aspen.aspx Today on this 2008 Chrysler Aspen, we are going to install part number V82280 from Valley. All right, first we will go ahead and show you where the hitch mounts up to the frame of the vehicle. It actually mounts on the side of the frame using the existing bolt holes that are there. Right now there are bumper bolts that are going through the frame and the bumper bracket. Those will get replaced by the bolts that come with the hitch. What we want to do is go ahead and loosen these bolts up and replace the bolts one at a time because if we take out all of the bolts at one time, the bumper is going to come down on us. So what we are going to do is replace one bolt at a time. On this back bolt here, this is one of two that actually stays with the vehicle.

Today we are going to be installing Hidden Hitch part number 87183 on a 2000 Ford F-150. This installation will also apply to Draw-Tite part number 75065. We are underneath the vehicle. We are going to go ahead and point out the mounting locations for the trailer hitch. We are looking at the driver side frame rail. You can see the wires for the existing 4-pole are in the way here so we want to make sure that when we put the hitch up, we pull those up and out of the way. Right above those wires would be the two existing holes here at the end of the frame rail. Those will provide the two rear most attaching points for the trailer hitch. And then we are going to be using first the two holes here forward on the frame rail that will provide a third attaching point. *******www.etrailer****/tv-hitch-install-2000-ford-f150.aspx

*******www.etrailer****/tv-Hitch-install-2008-Honda-CRV.aspx Today we are going to be installing Valley hitch part number V82163 on a 2008 Honda CRV. Okay we are underneath the vehicle and we are looking at the driver side frame rail. Here towards the end of the frame you can see we have got one, two existing weld nuts here in the frame. Those are going to provide the two attaching points on the driver side of the vehicle. It may be necessary on some models to go ahead and clean these weld nuts out if they have built up road grime or rust in them. Over here on the passenger side, we are actually going to be using the same attaching points, the two weld nuts. As you can see we have got the exhaust here in the way so we are going to go ahead and need to lower that down off of its hangers.

There is an extra hole on the frame of the hitch for manufacturing purposes, but it is not going to be used.
