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.

Draw-Tite is the only way to go. A grate clean look, puts the winch right where it needs to be. Took Steve's W advice & took the grill out & maid it easier to install. Taking tow hooks off was the easy part, Reinstalling A bit tough. What I did to make it easier was to tac weld washers to nuts & used A 3/8 x 17mm deep sock & braker bar to hold in place & screw in from front side. 85030

Easy to install (with an assortment of sockets, extensions and wrenches). Looks great, barely protrudes beyond the bumper and the tow hooks are even more useable now! Also, the product was eligible for free shipping, 7-10 day, and etrailer upgraded it to 3-5 day for free! One small feature about etrailer that is nice, is that when they send you an email it is from a person, not an auto-mailer! 120025

Easy to install with the right tools without any modifications on my 2013 Ram 3500. Customer service was excellent with effort made to get me the right product the first time. That other big auto parts mail order place(no names but initials JC) could take some lessons from you folks.99919

the front hitch appears to be an excellent product. I have installed the hitch but have yet to use it. The hitch is well made and its dimension fits in the available space, I would have given it the highest rating except it is a real bear to install because the bolts are almost impossible to access to start the nut and to get a wrench on to start the nut and torque. A special tool is required to hold the nut and to access the area. Also the bolt is a smaller dia. then the ones taken off. 119960

Fit perfect and looks great ! The 4 inside nuts wer almost impossible to install .Too much stuff in the way had to pull the grill and still couldn't get a wrench on 2 of them. For a portable winch it's the perfect hight and it hardly sticks out past the bumper not really notisible . Thanks steve77888

Does this hitch 65063 interfere with the cooling air flow for a Ram 3500 4x4 Diesel automatic transmission

I looked at the instructions for this hitch, but it did not depict the location of any of the radiators/coolers. It bolts on in the same location as the factory tow hooks. You can find their location on your truck look at the area between them to see where the front mount hitch will end up. As a side note, the factory tow hooks will be retained. The hitch flanges will be sandwiched between the tow hooks and the mounting points on the truck frame.

happy with hitch. It was a royal pain to install, you either have to remove front bumper or do as I did and take a dremel tool and cut off wheels and cut the bumper down to allow you to fit hitch. just had to cut away about 1/2 inch on each side where it bolts up. 73445

Installation was almost a breeze. Installing nuts takes a trick but fairly simple to install. I added some lock nuts after tightening the ones supplied in the kit. I was hoping to be able to you a winch along with a snatch block attached to the factory hooks but draw tite doesnt rate the receiver for that

comment by: philip - 8/13/2013

Just to clarify, the front hitch can be used to mount a hitch to pull the truck. Phillip is referring to the OEM tow hooks. They cannot be used in conjunction with a snatch block or winch pulley block.
