Our hitch pro writes: ... "The 45013 vertical shank is 2" square and 3-1/2" in length. The center of the Pin hole to the top of the vertical shank measures 1-1/8". The receiver tube is 2" square on the inside and 8" in length. The 45013 is rated for 5,000 GTW and 500 TW. Your hitch system is only as strong as its lowest-rated component. to find your hitch system rating, compare ratings of your hitch, hitch ball and ball mount. Your hitch system rating is the lowest among those parts. The use of an adapter that extends the trailer weight away from the receiver hitch can significantly reduce its GTW and TW weight rating."
Research indicates part 45013 will fit on your vehicles vertical hitch.
