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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Kia Sorento - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2008 Kia Sorento we'll be installing the Draw-Tite hitch, part number 75516. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier.The center of the hitch pin hole is even with the outermost edge of the bumper. The top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 14 inches. Now we'll go ahead with installation. To begin our install we'll first point out the attachment points.

We'll have a total of four attachment points, two in each frame rail. These attachment points will be weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer.We're going to go ahead and remove the rubber isolator from the muffler metal hanger to give us some more flexibility with the exhaust to make it easier to access these weld nuts. To remove the rubber isolator we'll spray it down with some spray lubricant and then use our pry bar to remove the rubber isolator from the metal hanger.With that out of the way we'll need to go ahead and prepare the weld nuts. Using some spray lubricant and a half inch nylon tool brush, part number 814092 we're going to go ahead and thoroughly clean out those threads. Note in extreme cases it may be necessary to use a thread tip to clean out the excess rust and dirt built up.With the hole cleaned out we'll go ahead and take one of the new fasteners and thread it into the weld nut to make sure it'll go nice and easily.

With that done we're now ready to go ahead and install the hitch. We'll be securing the hitch with the new 12mm bolt and half inch conical tooth washer-the teeth of the washer will face the hitch.We'll bring the driver's side up over the exhaust and then on the passenger side up to the frame rail. We'll install the passenger side fasteners finger tight and then move over to the driver's side and repeat the same process. With all four bolts in place we can go ahead and tighten them down. Next we'll torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions.

Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust and that we'll complete our install of the Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75516 on our 2008 Kia Sorento.

I think the product is an excellent choice for anyone to use as a trailer hitch. It was not as easy as I thought to put on but I got it on o.k. . I can honestly say it does take two people to do the job if you don't have a lift as shown in your video. The package was delivered in bad shape, rips. crushed areas, and the whole top of the box was completely open which someone had to tape up with packaging tape. Fortunately there was no damage but I do recommened that you should package this item in a stronger box and wrap the item with some sort of protection such as bubble wrap. I was surprised that it was not protected it any way shape or form, it was just put in a box to flop around. I can understand how the box got ripped and opened. The corners of the end plates were protruding out of the box. Poor packing I think you could do better than that. Other than that I am satisfied. 124728

The package was waiting on my doorstep when I came home today. A leisurely 45 minutes later the hitch is mounted… without a hitch (pun intended). Installation is extremely simple and straightforward. Just drop the spare tire (for a little extra working room) and mount the hitch. I do recommend a wire brush and lubricant to clean the threaded holes in the vehicle frame. Also, try running the bolts into the holes before mounting to be sure they are clean. And you might want an extra hand to lift the hitch into position. I should have, but I couldn’t wait. Now I’m off to pick up the fishing boat! 39311

Installed this Draw-Tite Max-Frame hitch in about 30 minutes on my 2007 Kia Sorento. The fact that it mounts above the muffler is a big plus. 25690

My new hitch feels strong and dependable. Service is great, I would send any family or friend to etrailer.com. I ordered the wrong wire harness and the rep I spoke with sent a new and correct one out immediately. I added a light bar with left and right turn signal and brake light for added safety and visibility when not towing. 120383

My DrawTite hitch arrived in good shape except for a few little scratches that I had to paint ! Take my advice, either get a friend to help you with installation or let a shop do it !! This is definitely not a one person install !! Once the hitch is finally between the frame rails, it bolts right up !! The wiring harness that I also ordered was really easy to plug in and works great !! The products that Etrailer.com sells are top notch but beware, some of these hitches are pretty heavy so get some help !! 193745

2008 Kia Sorento


I got this hitch to go on my 2008 Kia Sorrento and it went on very easily. The bolt holes were perfectly aligned and a little W D40 in the holes and start the bolts before putting hitch in place like the install video suggests and took me about 20 minutes. I am 68 years old and the job was a piece of cake. I like the looks of the hitch on the car, and if there were a complaint it could have been about 1 inch shorter so you could not bump it when the hitch insert was out of it. Very good product!!! 75524

by: Nick D.07/16/2012


The item from etrailer shipped out the same day. I ordered on Monday and received Wednesday. Amazing turnaround time. The hitch itself was a little more difficult to install than I anticipated. It took a few attempts to get the bolts over the KIA's muffler properly aligned. I suggest having someone around to help with the install... even if it is just to help balance the hitch until the bolts are in position. Overall I am very satisfied with the product and etrailer. 48072

2007 Kia Sorento


I had the hitch installed onto my 2007 Kia Sorento in less than 30 minutes, the design of the hitch made everything work as if it had come from the Kia factory. Bolt holes in the hitch and my Kia were a perfect match, couldn't have asked for anything better, good looking, good quality. Thanks for your how to video and quick shipping, will be doing the wiring next and then pull my new Chrysler Gem car to a demo day to show it off. Thanks: Don L. 49121

Product installed just as the video described (Easy) I did not loosen the exhaust mount but used the exhaust to hold up the one end as I bolted the other end (I did it by myself) very easy. Just need a long extension for your socket wrench. Web site is very easy and friendly. Did have one problem when ordering the wiring kit it does not come with the mounting bracket shown in the video that is separate so don't forget it... 28232

I have been an auto repair tech for over 30 years,and I always expect to have to modify any aftermarket part to get it to fit.I can say that for the first time in a long time I bought a product that fit just like the directions said.The fit and quality are both as good as you would ever want.The trailer wiring harness was of equal quality.I can not thank you enough for selling a product that is as good as advertised. 6336

One Great Hitch Delivery of my hitch was fast. Installation took less than the required time and for the most part was a breeze. 1 bolt in particular was a little tricky to get torqued, but with the right adapter was a breeze. Looks great and has a very sturdy feel. Loved that I could do this myself and save the $600 dealer quote for a hitch. 2942

Very easy to install took only me twenty minutes to bolt down. Great product. Shipping was on time but one end of hitch was sticking out of box.

Very accurate as far as product description. Easy to install. Fast shipping and great price. The Kia dealer wanted to charge me almost $400 for a hitch and installation. Hardest part was cleaning out the screw holes on my car frame. Once I got them done install took about 20 minutes. 143399

  • Exhaust and Spare Tire Interference with Hitch Install on 2005 Kia Sorento
  • I searched our customer reviews on the hitches available for the 2005 Kia Sorento and wasn't able to find any reported occurrences the exhaust rattling against the hitch for that vehicle. Hitch rattle can occur, because most vehicles use exhaust hangers and isolators that are flexible and allow the exhaust to move around a bit. If this movement allows with hitch too close to the hitch, this flexibility allows you to gently bend some of the exhaust hangers to allow for more space between...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Kia Sorento
  • For your 2008 Kia Sorento the correct hitch for your vehicle would be the Draw-Tite part # 75516. The # 75684 that you referenced is for newer Sorentos so it would not work for you. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Wiring Harness part # 56146KIT. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.
