When we came to the limits of towing capacity, we wanted to know what else was out there. What could we discover off the beaten path? So, we kept going. CURT class 5 Xtra Duty hitches begin a class of their own, beyond class 4 and beyond anything the standards dictate. They are designed for the hard road where only 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton and 1-ton pickup trucks and SUVs dare to tread. They are capable of pulling almost any heavy-duty trailer, including toy haulers, dump trailers, logging trailers, gravity boxes, small yacht trailers and more (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).
This particular Xtra Duty trailer hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 16,000 lbs. and an extra-high tongue weight capacity of 2,400 lbs. It features a 2" x 2" receiver tube opening to accept a ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory, such as a cargo carrier or winch mount, and it is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or 2500LD (except SS) or GMC Sierra 1500 or 2500LD (except SS) (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). For a little extra towing power and stability, this class 5 hitch can also be used in combination with a weight distribution system, increasing its gross trailer weight capacity up to 17,000 lbs.
In our drive to create a more powerful hitch, CURT has not neglected the finer details. Our class 5 trailer hitches are welded with precision and go through multiple stages of cleaning to create a smooth surface that is ready to accept our co-cured finish. To protect them from corrosion, chipping and UV damage, these hitches are coated first in a liquid Bonderite coating and then finished in a high-quality black carbide powder coat. They come with grade 8 mounting hardware for solid installation and are backed with a one-year finish warranty and overall limited lifetime warranty.

Just installed on my 2014 / 1500. Piece of cake. Easy install and what a monster hitch.
Great Heavy Duty Hitch - 1 flaw
After a week of comparing hitches from every make out there I came across this hitch and noticed it didn't fit my 02 GMC Sierra 1500 HD after putting it into the database. Upon further review on another website, someone with the same exact truck as mine asked the question if it would fit his. The answer was, yes is did. That was good news for me, since this is the hitch I was really wanting because of high WC and TW along with it having a square bar instead of the round bar that came with my truck. I got the hitch and it did fit thankfully. It's heavy (around 70lbs) and very stout! I love it. As I was installing it I hand tightened all the bolts that came with the hitch, but the issue I was having was there's a lip on the mount below the screws. This meant I was not able to get a socket and extension hooked up to my cordless impact. That was a bummer because I wanted to make sure this thing was secured to my frame tightly. The only way I was able to tighten the bolts was with a 1/2" ratchet and long socket. Again I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t use the extension because of the lip. That's the 1 thing I would change about this setup. In manufacturing I would half moon that lip where the bolts go into the frame this way an extension and some sort of power tool could be used instead of just a ratchet and hand tighten it.
