Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Video Transcript for Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2003 Chevrolet Silverado - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, we'll be installing a Draw-Tite Front Mounted two inch receiver with hitch, part number 65028. Here's what our hitch will look like once installed. Next, I'll give you a couple measurements to assist you selecting accessories for your hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the front bumper is five and three quarter inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 12 and half inches. This will assist you selecting accessories such as a snow plow, winch, or cargo carrier. To begin our install, we'll first go ahead and locate the manufacturer's tow hooks. We need to remove two fasteners on each.

The fastener that we're going to remove will be the inside frame fastener and bottom rear fastener. Keep in mind each process we do on one side, we go repeat identically on the opposite side, as our hitch has a total of four attachment points, two on each side. With those four fasteners out of the way, we'll go ahead and set them aside as they will not be reinstalled. To install the hitch, we're going to use the new 12 millimeter bolt and half inch inaudible 00:01:13 washer. The teeth of the washer will face the hitch, as it goes through the hitch, through the frame, back into the tow hook, where it's detaching point with the built in lug nut. We're now ready to put our hitch in place. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners.

We'll install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Now, once all our hardware is installed, we'll go ahead and tighten it down. Now, once all our fasteners are tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque to specification as indicated in instruction. Now, with all our fasteners tightened down and torqued to specifications, that will be the install of the front mounted Draw-Tite hitch, part number 65028 on our 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. .

Ordered this hitch for my 2005 Silverado 2500HD diesel with factory tow hooks. Mounted it in an half hour from box to installed - remove 4 bolts from the tow hooks, raise the receiver into position on a floor jack and use the supplied, longer, high-tensile bolts and lock washers to bolt it up. Absolutely NO cutting of the plastic facia nor relocation of license plate required. 102057


The Draw-Tite front receiver for my 2005 2500HD diesel Silverado bolted on easily last year and has given good service ever since. I use it with an eTrailer supplied Thule GoalPost to support my 16-foot aluminum canoe while pulling my 5th wheel trailer.It also makes moving my cargo trailer into its cramped parking spot easy.

This product was installed on my 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 HD pickup. The install took me approximately 15-20 minutes using a floor jack and a battery operated impact driver. No modifications to the bumper fascia were needed, nor was it necessary to remove the factory tow hooks. Although it has not been tested, the build quality seems very well made and capable of performing my intended use, which is to mount a motorcycle carrier and dirtbike. The position of the receiver is rather low (approximately 11.5” from the floor on my stock truck with 265/75/16 BFG AT’s), which may make the approach on steep driveways/berms difficult with a motorcycle carrier mounted. A receiver hitch riser may alleviate this concern, however. Untested, I would opine that this tow hitch will more than meet its intended use for me and would strongly recommend this product for its build quality and ease of installation. 142004

This front hitch was extremely easy to install on my 2004 Chevy 2500HD. I was working by myself and using a floor jack. If I would have followed direction and finger tighten the bolts and not tighten before all the bolts were started it would have been done in 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this product! 193330

I installed this front receiver onto my truck to help me push my trailer into a narrow parking spot alongside my home. I used to need assistance from a spotter to help me back the trailer in, but now I can push it from the front and park it without any help. Thank you etrailer.com customer service for helping me choose the correct model for my Silverado 3500, and for the extremely fast shipping. I couldn't be more pleased! 156737

I purchased a front receiver for my 2001 GMC 2500 HD to accept a bike rack to haul my electric bike! I am a 68 year old man with rotor cuff tears in both shoulders & I installed it in my driveway in about an hour! The majority of the time was consumed removing the OEM tow hooks! Now that it on, I think I can replace the tow hooks and use those bolts on the receiver in place of the hardware provided with the hitch! I would recommend this product based on Quality & ease of installation! I hope this is informational! 130169

I'm giving this a poor rating because the front hitch receiver didn't fit my truck. The front plates that are supposed to go between the frame rails were nearly 1/4" too wide. I assumed it was the result of a minor accident years ago and was ready to pay a frame shop to push the frame apart to make it fit. Fortunately, I got ahold of Etrailer tech support and we compared measurements and figured out that the hitch was made wrong. This is not a critique of Etrailer, because they immediately sent me a good one, which we installed in about half an hour with no problems, and arranged for me to return the faulty hitch. Etrailer's service was excellent, but I will be careful of DrawTite products in the future. 188049

This product went on without a hitch. This was to carry my bicycles for camping. I can also mount my winch on the receiver as needed very easily. I did drill the 1/2" holes in the side of the truck to 9/16" and that helped. I put it on alone without a jack to push it up in about 1/2 hour. I was concerned about having to cut the flaring away but it was flexible enough to just push it up a bit. I was going to build my own but that would have been nowhere as nice as this one. I really like the powder paint. It's perdy. I like the fact you can only see the square tube from standing in front of the truck. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. 138921

Have a 2006 Chevy Silverado Duramax Diesel. This fit the truck great without having to modify or adjust anything. Bolted on easy enough...but crawling under a truck is never that easy for me. But overall, would buy again. Gives me the option to carry bicycles on the front of my truck while towing my 5th wheel. 84270


Do you have a picture you would be willing to upload of the truck with bikes mounted up front? I have been trying to come up with a way to transport four bikes with my camper and this might be the perfect solution!

comment by: Kevin B - 07/21/2015


Thanks for your question Kevin, but keep in mind that carrying the bikes in your front mounted hitch may also block some airflow, and potentially cover your headlights. We also offer select bike racks that can be used on the back of an RV or camper that are rated for the additional forces that are experienced at the rear of the RV.

This bolted right up to the frame. I had factory towing hooks so it was just as easy as removing four bolts and replacing them with the included longer bolts. Just need to support the hitch while you start the bolts. It took about forty five minutes. Product was shipped fast and was packaged very well. Good follow up from etrailer. 79438

took all of 15 minutes to install. the hardest part was dragging the floor jack to the front of the truck. the front hitch is used for carrying a 385 pound suzuki dr 650 dual sport motorcycle. no holes to drill just remove two bolts on truck position hitch and replace the bolts with the new bolts provided. 136811

The Draw-Tite Front Mount hitch is exactly what I needed. It is a perfect fit and was relatively easy to install (once I went and purchased an 18mm wrench). Etrailer.com's service, price, and speedy delivery were outstanding. I will definitely keep them in my list of preferred vendors for future purchases. 60818

Went on in less than 20minutes from box to completed project! Great for use in maneuvering my boat back into a tight garage spot, couldn't do it with out it.

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?

  • All of the front mount hitches for the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado may require trimming of the black plastic fascia, that is mounted under the front bumper of your truck, depending on how the front bumper is mounted to the frame on each individual vehicle. The Draw-Tite hitch, item # 65023, for the 1500LD series truck does not require trimming of the fascia in most cases, see photo. Since you have a Duramax engine in your truck, you most likely need a front mount hitch that will fit a...

  • For a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500HD model, when installing front mount hitch # 65028, the factory tow hooks do not need to be removed. I have included a link to the installation isntructions for you to view. If you have a 1500LD model, the correct hitch is # 65023 and you would not remove the factory tow hooks for this hitch either.

  • Can a Bike Rack be Used in a Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic
  • The Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65028 has a 2 inch receiver opening so basically any bike carrier that will fit a 2 inch hitch will work. I have included a link to the bike racks we carry that fit a 2 inch receiver. If you can tell me how many bikes and the types of bikes you wish to carry I can make some recommendations. You should also know that bikes at the front of a vehicle can reduce driver visibility, air flow to the motor, and block the front lights so keep that in mind...

If you have the 2001 Chevy Suburban 1500, the Draw-Tite Front Hitch, # 65023, will fit and the Curt Front Hitch, # 31302 will fit.

  • Is There a Difference Between the Curt and Draw-Tite Front Hitch for a 2005 Chevy Suburban
  • The Draw-Tite front mount hitch # 65028 and the Curt Front Hitch # 31108 are very similar, but they are not the same hitch. This was not intentional, the manufacturers just so happened to come up with very similar designs for the hitch coincidentally. Since both hitches are so similar and have the same capacities I would not be able to recommend one over the other as both would work very well for you. I attached installation instructions for both product for you to check out.

Take a look at the diagram in the instructions link I provided to get a better idea of where the hitch will sit once installed.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • All of the front mount hitches we have for the 2006 Chevy Silverado, see link, will have just the receiver visible below the front fascia. None of them have the receiver behind the front license plate area. This is because the hitches attach to the frame so in order to mount a hitch so that the receiver exits behind the license plate the hitch would have to be mounted on top of the frame rails. There isn't room for a hitch in that location so instead manufacturers made the hitches to attach...

  • How To Determine Which Front Mount Hitch Will Fit My 2002 GM Pickup Truck
  • Yes, I can help you determine which front mount hitch will fit your 2002 GM z71 extended cab truck. First you will need to determine if your truck is a light duty or heavy duty truck. Our representative at Draw-Tite informed me that the easiest way to determine if you have a light or heavy-duty truck is to look at the lug nuts. If there are 6 lug nuts, you have a light-duty truck. If there are 8 lug nuts, you have a heavy-duty truck. For a light-duty 1500 series GMC Sierra or Chevrolet...

  • How to Tell the Difference Between a 2004 GMC 1500HD and 1500LD
  • If your 2004 GMC Sierra is a 1500HD it will have a badge on the side of the truck that says 1500HD. If it is an LD model it won't have anything on the side of it. You can also call a GMC dealer in your area with the VIN of your truck and they will be able to tell. If you do have an HD model you would wan the part # 65028 as a front hitch, or if you have an LD model you would want the part # 65023.

  • Is Front-Mount Hitch Compatible with Western Snow Plow Mounts on 2006 Suburban 2500
  • Often a permanently-installed snow plow mount (rather than a removable hitch-mount plow like those shown on the linked page) will use the same installation points as a front-mount hitch receiver. I checked the Western website for the plows offered for your 2006 Suburban 2500 but I was not able to view the installation instructions to allow me to compare them to those for the hitches we offer. Those two hitches can be seen on the other link provided. Both the Curt # 31108 and Draw-Tite...

  • Can Front Receiver be Installed on 2003 Chevy Suburban with Push Bar Already Installed
  • The factory tow hooks will not be a problem but the push bar will likely interfere with installation of a front mount receiver on your 2003 Chevy Suburban. What you would need to do is take a look at the instructions I have linked for a couple of front mount receivers: # 65023 for a 1500 and # 65028 for a 2500.
