Check Vehicle Fit

The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Ford Explorer Sport Trac (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a round tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers. One special feature about the class 3 that is not found in classes 1 or 2 is its compatibility with a weight distribution hitch. When used in combination with a WD hitch, this class 3's gross trailer weight capacity increases to 6,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 600 lbs. (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

    The hitch is robust, with solid welds and thick metal. It was easy to install and fit around my full size spare tire. I can pull a trailer with no worries.

      Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

      Very easy install,some comments were that it did not line up correctly which made me a little leary.Perfectly lined up! Took about 15 minutes to install.Put the brackets on first unless you have a helper to hold it for you,it's a heavy hitch to hold up there by yourself. Would highly recommend this product.

        Comments about Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch:

        I own a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. Had to put side pieces onto chassis first and then connect pipe between. Instructions say to connect side pieces to pipe and then install - that did not work. Also had to remove bolted on section of rear bumper. Other than the above the product is top notch. Looks great and does its job as advertised.
