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.

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Good product & easy install with some revisions to the instructions. 1st-When you take all 6 bolts out of the bumper it will fall on you! I assumed there were 2 in the back(to hold it on),WRONG. 2nd- The factory trailer wiring plug needs to be relocated. This simple revision would save a lot of time , frustration & hammer blows. You will need a large assortment of 18mm tools. Fords fault,not the hitch mfg. Other tools needed-6 pack of Coors light,torch,fire ext.,fish wire & a big hammer. The 6 pack will not be needed if you move the factory plug before you start! 13010

2005 Ford Explorer


Nice looking Drawtite hitch right out of box......fit right up to my 2005 Ford Explorer....took about 21/2 hrs to install with a dinner break in the middle. Probably would have been much easier with helper but I couldn't wait for my friend to come over....mounted below factory Class II hitch which is probably made for a bike rack...re-used factory bolts on frame rails...added new carriage bolts (kind of a pain to fish wire inside frame rail) to complete installation...I would recommend this hitch to a friend.... 45643

eTrailer professionals guided me to the correct hitch for my vehicle.The hitch was delivered in two days and the perfect fit allowed installation in approximately 45 minutes. Great product!! eTrailer provided the correct hitch, more prompt service, less expense, and a "warm fuzzy feeling" that comes from completing a job without problems. This is the opposite of my experience for a hitch I tried from my local "fast food auto parts" stores. Thanks joe d 46324

Directions should have noted that realigning the bolt holes would be required if this was noted I would not have spent 4 hours trying to get them back into the correct position to install the new bolts. A simple placement of the new bolts partway through from the oposite side of the frame would have kept everything in alignment before installing the hitch. Otherwise this is a fine wel built product. 61144

2004 Ford Explorer


Fit like a glove, however for the 04 explorer you will reuse the factory bolts and add the two lower bolts to the hitch. a little banging around and it will line up about a hour job in the driveway. Arrived fast, and well packed. you will need a 18mm & breaker bar or a cheater on a ratchet to get the bolts out of the explorer. 19293

Received two days after ordering. Exactly what I needed. Fairly easy and straight forward installing instructions. This is the second time ordering from etrailer.com. The way they stay on top of your order through and after delivery gives you the sense that they really care about their customers. Highly Recommended. 121118

Just mounted this to my 2002 4 Door 4,0L XLT Ford Explorer. Took me about 1.5 hours as I removed the bumper and the lights first. This helped to drop in the vertical bolts. Fits like a glove great product. 199171

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Can a Trailer Hitch Adapter Be Used to Carry 2 inch Cargo Carrier oa a 2005 Mercury Mountaineer
  • There are two good recommendations for you but I would not recommend using a hitch adapter to carry a 2 inch shank cargo carrier in a 1-1/4 inch hitch. The reason is that the adapter reduces the hitch tongue weight capacity by 50 percent, and you would need to be very careful not to overload the hitch and vehicle frame, causing damage. The reduction in capacity is due to the extra torque that is applied when placing the weight farther away from the rear of the vehicle. The first recommendation...

  • Is There A Motorcycle Carrier Available That Will Fit a 1-1/4 Hitch On a 2005 Ford Explorer
  • To use the Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier, part # AMC400, or any motorcycle carrier, you would need to install a Class III 2 inch hitch on your 2005 Ford Explorer. I would recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75132, which has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. The OEM or factory 1-1/4 inch hitch that is on your Ford Explorer does not have the capacity to support a motorcycle carrier and motorcycle. The Draw-Tite Hitch will install below your factory 1-1/4 hitch and will...

  • All three of the 2-inch Class III hitches we offer for your 2004 Ford Explorer can be seen on the linked page and all three are as you noted intended for use along with the OEM 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch that came on the vehicle from the factory. We do not offer any Class III or Class IV hitches that actually replace the factory hitch. The highest rated hitch option is the Draw-Tite # 75132, which is rated for 500-lbs tongue weight (TW) and 5000-lbs gross trailer weight (GTW). If you...

  • Using a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Adapter Reduces Tongue Weight Capacity on a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • The use of any adapter or extension will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer by 50 percent. In this situation, you have to go with the lowest capacity, in this case it is the trailer hitch with the reduced tongue weight. Even if the adapter is rated for 6,000 pounds, you will only be able to tow as much as your hitch and vehicle will allow. To overcome this problem, I recommend installing a larger capacity hitch like the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75132....

  • Can The Draw-Tite Ball Mount, # 36065, Be Turned Over And Used As A Drop On a Mercury Mountaineer
  • A 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver is either a Class I or Class II hitch. All Class I and Class II can only use the ball mounts that are recommended for that vehicle. For safety reasons, if you have to change the rise or drop from the recommended ball mount, then the manufacturer does not recommend to tow that trailer with the Class I or Class II hitch on your vehicle. We have Class III hitches available for Mercury Mountaineers that will bolt on underneath the OEM 1-1/4 hitch. The Class...

  • Is There A Class 4 Trailer Hitch Available For 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • We do not offer a Class lV hitch for your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, but we do have a couple of hitches that would possibly work for you. The first hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 75132. The trailer hitch has a towing capacity of 5000 lbs, unless weight distribution is used. Then the maximum towing capacity jumps to 8000 lbs. When you are towing anything that weighs more than 50 percent of the towing vehicle, weight distribution is recommended....

  • We do have trailer hitch options that will fit underneath the OEM hitch on your 2002 Ford Explorer. None of the available trailer hitches replace the factory hitch though. The most popular option is Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75132. This is a Class III trailer hitch rated for 500 pounds tongue weight and 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight.

I have included a link to the options for you. The comparable Draw-Tite hitch is # 75132. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

This hitch will fit under the factory hitch (which is likely welded on so it cannot be removed). I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. To complete your towing set up I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It includes 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. And if you need to add...

  • How Can I tow a Camper and Use a Bike Rack on an OEM 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on an 2005 Ford Explorer
  • There are not any adapters or dual purpose ball mounts available for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. You do have the option of installing a 2 inch hitch that will sit underneath your OEM 1-1/4 inch hitch like Draw-Tite part # 75132. I have added a link to it below and we do have a picture on that page of how how it looks after installation. Once you have a 2 inch hitch installed you can use something like the Curt dual-purpose ball mount, part # D210.

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendations for a 2004 Ford Explorer
  • Weight distribution can only be used with a Class III hitch or higher. What you can do if you want to use weight distribution is add a Class III trailer hitch. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75132, will fit under the factory 1-1/4 inch hitch that you have on your 2004 Ford Explorer. With this hitch installed, you can add weight distribution provided that the vehicle owners manual allows the use of weight distribution as well. If you can go this route, you would the need a weight distribution...

If you have an OEM hitch, this hitch will simply install beneath the OEM hitch. I have attached the installation instructions for this hitch for you to check out. If you plan on doing any towing with this hitch, you will want a few additional items to complete your towing setup. First, you will need a trailer wiring harness....

  • 2 inch Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Ford Explorer for Carrying Scooter Carrier
  • I am terribly sorry you got such bad advice on the use of a hitch adapter on your 2002 Ford Explorer. Hitch extenders just aren't great solutions for carrying scooter carriers since they add quite a bit of movement and leverage on the hitch. What you will need is a 2 inch hitch that can install on your vehicle that will handle the weight of your carrier. If you have a 4 door Explorer you will want the part # 70647 or if you have a 2 door you would want the # 75132. Both of these hitches...

I have linked for you the written install instructions as well as a helpful article with tips for an easier hitch installation.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Ford Explorer to Tow 5,100 Pound Trailer
  • The most popular trailer hitch for your 2004 Ford Explorer is # C13550. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight and 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight. You will also need to check the vehicle owner's manual to determine its capacity. Whichever is the lower, the hitch or the vehicle, is the rating you need to go by. If you need to add a trailer wiring harness you can hardwire in # 18252 to add a 4-Way flat.

  • Hitch and 2-5/16 Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • The problem is that the ball holes of ball mounts for a 1-1/4 inch hitch are all 3/4 inch in diameter and thd 2-5/16 inch balls are all for 1 inch diameters and up. The reason for this is that trailers that call for that big of a ball are going to be too heavy for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. The only solution I would have for you would be to upgrade to a 2 inch hitch like the part # 75132 so that you can go with a ball mount that will accommodate a 2-5/16 inch ball on your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer....

  • Class III Trailer Hitch Installation on 2003 Lincoln Aviator
  • If the factory- (or dealer-) installed hitch on your 2003 Lincoln Aviator is bolted on to the vehicle frame, rather than being welded to it, then you should be able to remove it to install a larger 2-inch Class III hitch like # 75132 from Draw-Tite. The easiest way to check is to get a look under the vehicle to see how the hitch's frame brackets are attached. If they are bolted to the frame then you will be able to remove the hitch in order to install a new one. If the hitch happens...
