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 8,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 800 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a square tube frame and reuses the factory hardware for 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 10,000 lbs. and the tongue weight capacity to 1,000 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.

Good HITCH, may need a revision
The Good: As Described this hitch will install into a Canyon/Colorado with ease. Bolt holes line up great and only need to bend the two end plates slightly in order to slide past frame rail (However I think this is by design so that the plates can act as a spring-loaded clamp for easier install with one person. Definitely more of a blessing than a curse) Also it was easier just to take off the bumper after unplugging the two connectors(tag lights) and camera/bed lock instead of trying to keep the bumper on the vehicle. The Bad: Do not bet on comfortably using the center step as the stock support from the lower towing capacity hitch has this welded to it and not on the curt Hitch. There is a "half inch" gap between the deform able center step and top of the curt hitch bar. I fixed this by cutting off the support and welding it to my hitch. Also make sure you look around as there are two differing models of this hitch. One with the spare tire bracket tab that I saw in a video but have not found the part number and one without. I accidentally bought the one without and also had to weld this to my new curt hitch. I do not see how they expect the wheel to be seated without much vibration without this spare tire bracket.
