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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Jeep Commander - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2008 Jeep Commander well be installing the Draw Tite hitch, part number 75338. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next well go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is four inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 17 and one-quarter inch. This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a draw bar, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

Now lets go ahead with installation. Note weve already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire for easier installation and access. Note we have a total of four attachment points in the bumper beam pre-drilled by the manufacturer. In order to get our hitch in place well need to remove two of the plastic push pin fasteners located on the bottom side of the bumper beam. Using our flat bladed screwdriver well pry the center of the plastic fastener out and then remove the fasteners.

Now you can see that we can go ahead and push the bumper fascia away from the bumper beam. This will allow us to slide the hitch into position. Well be using the hardware provided with our install kit, half inch bolts, and conical tooth washers with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. As the bolt will go through the hitch, through the bumper beam, back into the weld nut of the hitch to be secured. Note some applications will need the large flat spacer washers put between the hitch and the bumper beam.

Now lets go ahead and put our hitch in place. Well install one of the half inch bolts to hold the hitch while we attempt to install two flat washers into one position. Well start with the center two fasteners first and then the outside two fasteners. For this application there is not enough space so well just install one flat washer between the hitch and the bumper beam. Well do this for all of our fasteners one per bolt.

Now with all our fasteners installed finger tight were ready to go ahead and tighten them down. Next well go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Were ready to reinstall the bumper fascia fasteners. Thatll complete the install of our Draw Tite hitch, part number 75338, on our 2008 Jeep Commander.

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Ordering from etrailer was a great experience - the customer service was fast & friendly. Unfortunately, installing this hitch on an 07 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a factory installed rear tow hook is much more difficult. If your Jeep does NOT have the factory rear tow hook, installation could not be simpler and would take 5-10 mins. The factory rear tow hook has a support that uses one of the mounting holes for the trailer hitch so it has to come out in order to install the hitch. The problem is that the bolt is tack welded on from the factory! Even with an impact wrench (I destroyed a snap on socket trying to muscle the nut off) the bolt isn't coming off. I ended up taking it to a friend who had an air chisel and were able to destroy the nut enough to release the bolt. While you *could* just slip the hitch on at this point, and reattach the tow hook support to the second bolt on the hitch, the instructions make it very clear that the factory tow hook MUST be removed. Well, that requires removing three more bolts (thankfully these aren't tack welded!) and then dropping the bumper to get the hook out. Reinstall bumper, install hitch and done. If you have the tools & ability to remove the tack welded nut the whole install will take about an hour, but in reality most people are going to need to have a mechanic do the install IF they have a factory installed rear tow hook. 141986

Jeep Grand Cherokee


Received the package in a timely fashion. The equipment fit almost perfectly. I had to use the spacer washers to get the final little giggle worked out. I initially started on this project by myself but quickly realized that it required at least three hands. It was pretty much impossible to hold up the hitch while pulling the plastic bumper frame away from the cross bar enough to get the long bolts between the plastic and the hitch. Luckily my neighbor came out and the two of us installed it in less than a half hour. Anticipate having to use the spacers on the Jeep Grand Cherokee which is a little bit of a pain in the rear as they either want to slip behind the metal and roll around or you have to use a Flathead and a hammer to tap it into place. I suggest getting some extra strength thread glue to guarantee the bolts never rattle loose from vibration. The electrical was incredibly easy to install. All in all I have to give the company and the product two thumbs up. The only two reasons that I didn't rate it 'Excellent' is because (1) it really did need two people to install and (2) I haven't actually hooked any loads up so I can only assume that will work out well. 7395

The hitch is very nice. Heavy plate steel. Doesn't really take away much ground clearance. I might have lost an inch. No trouble at all with the welded on nut threads and the welds are top notch all around. Rated about a thousand pounds more than my Grand Cherokee is rated for towing. I got this to pull a trailer with a yard or two of stone and branches and stuff to the dump. It's going to easily take on the job. 123877

2007 Jeep Commander


Got this for our 2007 Jeep Commander. The video really helped- make sure you watch it. Took the spare tire out, and about 12 minutes later, I had the hitch installed. You'll need a large socket wrench. The only trouble I had was trying to get the spare tire back into place. Tried and tried, but it just wouldn't fit. Got rather frustrated, and then I realized that the spare measured 265, rather than the 245s that were on the vehicle. No wonder it wouldn't fit. I took the tire to a tire store and traded for a smaller spare, and voila it fit. There was absolutely no way that a size 265 spare tire was going fit in there with the hitch in place. We've carried a cargo tray hitch with this, and it works fine. Etrailer was very prompt with delivery- came in just 2 days. I received several emails with updates. I'm very pleased with both the product and the service. 46985

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee


The hitch is great, but the service was even better. I ordered the hitch for my 2008 Grand Cherokee on Saturday night and the hitch was waiting for me when I got home from work on Tuesday! My son and I installed it in about an hour. I could have probably done it by myself, but it helped to have an extra set of hands to hold things in place while getting the bolts lined up. Lowering the spare tire will give you extra room to work. All the parts (bolts, washers) were included and everything fit perfectly. Installation is so simple that you probably don't need the instructions but the instructions were clear and show the two rivets to temporarily remove to loosen the bumper facia while installing the hitch. Final product is very neat and clean. 125342

Fantastic product! I now look like I actually use my Jeep for manly things like camping and crushing rocks... It is very solid hitch and I am certain that I will not have any problems. I will be more worried about hair loss in the next ten years than I will be about this hitch; and I can barely run a comb through my hair now!!! It is so easy to install... I had it done in 10 minutes. These guys know what they are doing. I also purchased the wiring harness for my Jeep and installing that was easier than spinning in a circle twenty times and falling down... I will definitely be coming here first for any other hauling needs I may have. Heck, I'll come here just so I can read all the installation instructions. Thank You!!! 107940

This Hitch bolted up fairly effortlessly. With my Jeep the rear cross member had a seam that seamed to have some built up weld on it or something that didn't quite let the washers, that came with the kit as shims, to work. Would have been nice to have some sort of clip on shim instead of the washers this would have been easier than trying to tape them in place. Over all my review is very positive, took me all of 30 minutes to install it. Got the wiring harness on order as well. 157307

2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Just installed the hitch on my 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Fit great and was relatively easy to install. I installed by myself and had almost no trouble, very straightforward. The only issue is that the plastic rivet clips on the bumper won't line up to be reattached to the frame after the job was done. This however really poses no problem, the bumper is secure against the hitch even without the rivets and does NOT rattle, and looks just as it did prior to the job. 26573

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee


It's a great hitch and installation was as easy as the other reviewers said it would be! The hitch itself is hefty like you want your hitch to be... the welds are clean and solid, and the coating/paint is good and thick. I installed it on my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once I dropped the spare tire out of the way, the hitch literally just slides into place and you just bolt it on with four 3/4" bolts. Done. I also got the wiring harness (118394) which was just as easy to install. Watch the video and you'll be ready to go. Pop off the brake lights, plug the harness in, and then run the wires. Anyone can do this. Good luck and safe towing, - Asi 14811

Mounted it Sunday, up and towing on Monday. Great unit, easy to install with the detailed instructions to my vehicle. Should note there is a little spare tire rub when dropping the spare with this unit attached to my '07 Commander, but nothing that's a major issue. Also got the great wiring harness which was easy to install. Got a 3'rd party tow bar and ball, meets my trailer exactly at a perfect level. Slam dunk for any Commander owner who doesn't want to cut the bumper. 27272

Excellent, affordable hitch I have a 2006 Grand Cherokee. I installed this myself in about 30 minutes with very little experience. It's a tight fit to get it placed, but once you do, it looks great and hangs about 2 millimeters below the bumper. I've towed a fully loaded 6x12 U-haul from Florida to Chicago with it and it worked like a charm. Since then, I've only used it for bike racks and cargo carriers, but it hasn't let me down yet. I love it. 902

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Hitch is great, as described, and easy to install. I've got a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the OEM tow hook. The tow hook removal is the worst part: (3) easy-access bolts, and (1) not-so-easy-access bolt. The tough bolt is the cross-brace, which can only be loosened from the bolt-head on the rear-facing side of the vehicle. I used an 18 mm wrench for these bolts. Other than the tow hook removal, it's a piece-of-cake! 39449

Excellent product! Never imagined that adding a Class III hitch to our Jeep could be so easy. It's built like a tank! With the installation video provided by etrailer.com I went in feeling like I'd done the job before. Hardest part for me was popping off the bumper fasteners--they were kind of stubborn. Otherwise it's pretty much turning a socket! Got here fast and the price was right! 70924

This hitch is very solid and well built hitch. If you have tow hooks on your Jeep Grand Cherokee you may have to remove the bumper flashing to get to two hidden bolts. Allow at least an hour + to remove all tow hook bracket bolts. After the prep stage of removing the tow hook bracket and removing a few plastic bumper flashing push pins, this was a very easy install. 36298

Installation was easy on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. After some prep work dropping the spear tire & removing two clips for the bumper it only took 20 min. to bolt the hitch on to the frame. Although I did need a little help from my wife to pull on the bumper which made positioning the hitch easier. 219732

The whole kit was awesome and so was the price. Ordered it on a Thursday and received it the following Wednesday. It is an easy install but not 30 minutes for 1st timers. If you do it all the time then yeah, if not, take your time. Shim the hitch properly and take extra care in routing the wires so you won't be doing it again, i.e. watch for sharp edges on frame and/or body and wires close to exhaust. Another obvious one, but for people doing something like this for the 1st time, don't use the bolts to line up the hitch holes. Use a long screwdriver or something so you don't mess up the threads on the bolts and/or hitch. 196543

Product was excellent quality, but more importantly, the customer service was outstanding. Free, super-fast shipping, numerous emails about the status of the order, and personal communication all contributed to one of the best e-commerce transactions that I have ever completed. If I was forced to nitpick, my only comment would be to suggest that etrailer find an alternative method of securing the box. A large handful of copper staples were used, and while this made for a very secure container for a heavy object, copper is a limited resource and hard on the planet to mine. I suspect over time, you guys have witnessed a few of these boxes come apart in transit, but please consider a more renewable product, glue perhaps, to secure your boxes. Overall, my experience was beyond excellent, and I am a hard critic, being the web marketing director for a 1 billion dollar retailer. I have already recommended etrailer to several friends and will order any trailer supplies needed from you again in the future. 116036

every thing about the hitch installation is correct went very fast and was super easy. The only thing that I would like to point out is the removal of the standard J tow hook that comes stock with teh commander. You have to remove the cross brace for the J hook. The cross brace ties driectly into the rear frame where the tow hitch needs to go. The bolt that you need to take out has to be removed from the BUMPER SIDE that is the very rear end. You can not remove the nut because the nut is welded onto the cross brace. 22338



- 75338

by: Marley B08/06/2014


1) It took a lot longer to install the hitch than stated in the information. The hitch was very loose on the cross member and required the use of the metal fender washers(provided) to take up the gap. Getting them into postion between the cross member and hitch was tedious and time consuming. One washer was not enough and two was alomost to much and required driving them into postion.. Then you had to use a spud wrench to line them up with the holes in the hitch. ( A fix for this would be to have washers with a gap cut out of them so you could drop them down on to the loose bolt while its already in the hole. 2)Also by powder coating the inside of the welded on nuts made the bolts were very hard to run into the nuts. A fix for this would to have bolts in the holes when powder coating the hitch and then remove them prior to shipping. 144796

I really had no idea how large and heavy this was until I got the box. Very solid and the welds look great. This will definitely do the trick. Install is easy but I did need an extra hand or two to hold it in place while I fastened it to the frame. 130866

From start to finish, shopping at etrailer.com was a pleasure. This is the second hitch I've purchased from them and have received the same quality product and service both times. Selecting the item I needed for my particular vehicle was a snap since etrailer has a simple step by step vehicle selection tool. I was immediately notified via email of my order and tracking status. And most importantly, installation was a breeze. I am not a very handy person, but lifting this hitch into place and placing four bolts and several washers is something I can handle. The hitch is a high quality product. Just lifting it out of the box and feeling the weight of it, one couldn't dispute its quality. I would highly suggest ordering from etrailer.com. You will be as satisfied as I am. Regards, Mark 45964

I recently ordered and installed this product from etrailer. It seems very sturdy and well built. Etrailer was excellent to deal with, with an email on the status of my order about 15 minutes after placing it. Install was just a matter of dropping the spare tire and tightening four bolts. It does seem as if the hitch should have just a little more drop to it as it does pull on the bumper slightly but not noticeable unless you crouch and look at it. Overall excellent experience with etrailer and this product. 131498

My hitch came in one I was at work, when I got off at 6 I looked and it and decided to put it on that night. The install was straight forward, the instructions where easy to ready. The hardest part was getting all eight washers into place. I did a old mechanic trick. I used some tape, and taped the washers to the hitch before I put it up into the space where the hitch goes, it took two tries to get it up there with all eight washers where they needed to be. I like the look and how strong it feels. I put the wiring harness on at the same time. Took me form start to finish 45 mins. Over all easy install and a good product. 212090

I found the hitch kit was well thought out. The washers that came with the hitch were needed and taping them together did help as I needed two for some bolts. I did have a little trouble with one of the bolts not lining up and I also had an issue with some bolts needing one washer while others needed 2. The interior ones needed two but the outer ones could only fit one. I think I made the mistake of trying to install it first without the washers and may have caused the issues above. All in all its tight and not going anywhere. I towed about 5500 lbs with it a few weeks back and it worked great. 208738

With the exception of dropping my socket wrench on my big toenail (OUCH), this installation was incredibly easy. I don't know what a couple of other commenters were talking about not being able to hold the hitch receiver up while putting in the bolts. I had my 10 year old son help on Fathers Day. He handed me the bolts ;-) what a good boy. 20 minutes, including the time it took to lower the spare tire. Hint to others, after install with the spacers, the spare tire is very tight... May want to forgo spacers, or try to put them in back, the 2-4 mm might help. 44533

Had been quoted cost of $150+ from dealer with $250+ for installation. Found this website, easily located the item for my daughter's 2007 Jeep at cost below dealer, placed order. Imagine my surprise when it was on the porch 3 days later! Watched the video clip demonstrating installation. Seemed simple enough.....WAS simple enough. Piece of cake. My wife commented that there was not a single expletive during the whole install. The lighting harness was equally easy. Great product! Great Company. I'll be back for future needs. 18545

Probably the easiest hitch to install. The video provided on the website explained things very well. Shipping was very fast as well. 177540

I just installed this and it was just as easy as they said. The clips on the bumper are easy to get off and worked just fine reusing them even. I had to play with how many washers it needed(1 side needed 2, the other only needed 1) but once I got that right, it went on and was installed in probably half an hour. Again, a second person just to pull the bumper out and hand you tools while you are under the car is a definite must, but went on easily and looks great. Now I just have to find something to haul with it. 121407

We just got done installing the hitch after 3 liesurely hours rather than the "20 minutes" advertised. Although we had some reservations as to how structurally suited our Jeep's underpinnings for this foot long perpendicular to the road design might be, the combination of half inch welded metal hitch, four half inch bolts, a hand full of shims, and excellent instructions has allayed all concerns. When another 3 hours opens up, we'll get to the "20 minute" installation of our C56009 wiring hook-up 69798

Excellent hitch, took about half a hour to install. Haven't used it yet but it seems very sturdy 110620

Receiver arrived fast in a Heavy Duty very secure cardboard box. Hefty piece of steel with quality welds and nice thick paint job. Made In Mexico if that matters. Installation went smoothly, just as their online videos instructions presented. This DIY'er is Super Pleased! 211579

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Will I need to cut bumper to install hitch 75338 on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd.?
  • You will not need to cut the bumper fascia. You will need to pull the fascia rearward about one inch to raise the hitch into position. The instructions say that on vehicles with the OEM tow hook, the tow hook must be permanently removed for hitch installation. I have included links to the instructions and to a video that shows installation of this hitch on a similar vehicle.

  • What Weight Distribution And Sway Control for Jeep Commander Towing A 7,000 Pound Car Hauler
  • The first thing to do before you start towing is to always check the owners manual or the car dealer for the GCVWR (Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating) of your vehicle. The GCVWR is the maximum allowable weight capacity for your vehicle, including the vehicle, trailer and contents. You will need to check the hitch on your vehicle to make sure it has the correct weight capacity. Also, if you can add weight distribution to your hitch, to tow your 7,000 lb. trailer. The class or weight...

  • Should I Choose a Class II or Class III for my 2008 Jeep Commander Sport 3.7L V6
  • We always recommend choosing a 2 inch hitch, Class III or higher, if one is available. As you pointed out, your Commander will have a lower towing capacity than other models and the hitch will be capable of more than the vehicle. If your vehicle can handle more than 3,500 pounds total trailer weight, you will have already limited yourself with the 1-1/4 inch Class II. Additionally, there are far more accessories available for 2 inch hitches than 1-1/4 inch hitches. This includes hitch covers,...

  • Availabillity of a Hitch for the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Rocky Mountain Edition
  • The Curt instructions do say that their hitch will not fit on the Rocky Mountain Edition vehicles. I spoke to my contact and was told that there is a bumper bracket that interferes with their hitch on that model. I checked with my contact at Reese, Draw-Tite and Hidden hitch and was told that their hitches will fit the Rocky Mountain edition. You can choose from any of their hitches on the page linked below. I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, item # 75338, which we...

  • How To Determine if a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a 7-Way
  • If you look at the back of your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee and see a wiring connector that looks like the Tow Ready Wiring harness part # 20135 then you have a 7-way. Another option you could have is a 4-way which would look like part # 18172, or you might not have any connector at all. To add a 4-way you would first want the Tow Ready Wiring harness part # 118394. If you needed to upgrade to a 7-way you would need the 4-Way to 7-Way adapter part # 37185 after installing the #118394. For...

  • Weight Distribution For 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • A weight distribution system is not a vehicle specific item. As long as the hitch included with the tow package on your Grand Cherokee is compatible with weight distribution, and Jeep makes no prohibitions about using weight distribution, you can certainly use the properly rated system. In order to recommend the correct system for you, I will need to know the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer, plus the weight of anything stowed in the cargo area behind the rear...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2008 Jeep Commander Rocky Mountain Edition
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75338 is listed as a fit for all styles of the 2008 Jeep Commander so that would include the Rocky Mountain Edition. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to...

All available hitches for your car are shown on the linked page. You can refer to your hitch's safety sticker to confirm its Class rating. The linked article on hitches may be of interest too.

  • Installing Trailer Hitch On 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 75338 that is confirmed as a fit for your 2005 Grand Cherokee is installed right behind the bumper. In the attached instructions there are 2 plastic pins that hold the bumper fascia onto the bumper that have to be removed first. Then you need to slide the fascia rearward about an inch to install the trailer hitch. Since you have a trailer hitch already installed, you will need to make sure it is bolted on and that a replacement...

  • Is There A Video Of The Installation Of A Trailer Hitch And Wiring On A 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I have a video of the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch, # 75338 being installed on a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The video shows it being installed on a Jeep without a tow hook, so if your Jeep has a tow hook it would have to be permanently removed which adds 20 to 90 minutes to the installation time. I also have a video of the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118425, being installed on a 2007 Jeep Laredo. Even though the vehicle is different, the procedure will be very similar and you...

  • Does Installation of a Class III Hitch on 2007 Jeep Commander Require Cutting the Bumper
  • We do offer two different Class III hitches for your 2007 Jeep Commander and both can be seen on the link provided, including the Draw-Tite # 75338 that you referenced. I reviewed the installation instructions for this hitch (they are attached for your reference along with a video) and there is no mention made of any trimming of the bumper fascia. The same applies to the other two hitches offered. If you will be towing you might consider the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900 which includes...

  • Recommended Hitch for Maximizing Towing Capacity on a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • First thing to know is that you cannot increase your towing capacity by upgrading your hitch. Instead you can maximize your towing capacity. You will have to abide by the lowest rated component in your setup, which may end up being your vehicle in this case. In my research for your vehicle I came across the weight capacities per drivetrain, I've attached a snapshot of this from page 312. This should also be listed on the placard on the inside of your driver's door. The Draw-Tite...

  • How to Pick Out a Hitch for a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Tow a 26 ft Trailer
  • Depends on the trailer. If the 26 foot trailer you plan on towing weighs less than 3,000 lbs then a hitch with that capacity would be adequate. You should note that if you are talking about traditional trailer towing you would need a hitch for the rear of your 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Curt Hitch part # C31047 that you referenced is a front hitch that installs on the front of your vehicle and would not be what you would need. You would want something like the Draw-Tite part #...
