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 - 1994 Ford F150

All right, today we are going to install part number 75038 on a 1994 Ford F-150 pickup truck. All right, the hitch gets mounted to the frame right here. There is actually a dent in the hitch where it mounts against this rivet right here. And it mounts onto the frame about this far back. And you do have to drill all the holes out in the frame. So the best way to do it is to clamp it up to the frame and then use the hitch as a template and drill out all the holes. All right, one other thing you want to do before you install is lower the spare tire as far as possible to give you some working room to get up in there.

All right, why do we not go ahead and install our hitch. We are going to clamp it in place. And it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands. All right, once you have your hitch installed, when you clamp it into place, make sure that this rivet here is going toward this side of the dent on the hitch. Push it all the way forward and push the hitch against the rivet, and you will be set and it will be squared on the frame. After that, you will not have to worry about it left and right. Now we can go ahead and drill out our holes. What we are going to do is drill out everything with our 1/4 inch bit first to mark our holes, for a pilot hole for our larger bit, and then before we use our larger bit we will take down the hitch and finish drilling out the holes to a little over 1/2 inch. For the pilot holes, then, we can go ahead and take down the hitch and finish drilling out the holes. What we are going to do is actually go up to a 1/2 inch bit and then after that we are going to run it out to about 9/16. That way, that will give us a little extra wiggle room for the bolts to move around to get into the hitch. Also, you might not get them exactly perfect and aligned, so a little extra wiggle room will help. Again, we will go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side.

Next we will go ahead and install our hardware. The bolt with the black anodized finish goes toward the end of the frame. And the plate you want to have kind of like matching the end of the frame, too. Not sticking out - kind of like matching the frame itself. And then the rest of the hardware, the bolts and plates go in just like so. If you can get the plate to fit in like this, great. If you cannot, it is no big deal to leave it on the outside. It usually never does. Repeat the process for the other side. Now we can go ahead and reinstall the hitch and we will use a couple of nuts to hold it in place while we guide the rest of the other bolts in. Now we can go ahead and reinstall some bolts - if any of them came out, we can push those back into the hitch. Now we can install the rest of our fasteners: the lock washers and the nuts, in their proper sequence. And the bolt on the end gets a flange nut - and it is a locking one, so you only get like two or three threads in before it will stop. And then you have to crank it down after that. Again, repeat for the other side. At this point we can go ahead and snug down our bolts. On the bolt on the end of the frame you will have to have a wrench to hold down the bolt while you tighten it down. And again, it is a lock nut, so you will have a lot of resistance tightening it down. Go ahead and snug up the rest of the bolts. At this point we will give them their final torque. All right, that is all it takes to install our hitch, part number 75038, on a 1994 Ford pickup truck.

  • Compatability of Receiver Hitch with Eagle Lift Gate on 1989 Ford F-250 4 x 4
  • I contacted Draw-Tite about the Class III Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch, item # 41004. Draw-Tite informed me that the measurement they have is 5-3/4 inches from the mounting location to the top of the receiver tube that the drawbar slides into. I do have the following hitches in stock for your truck and measured the distance from the top of the receiver tube to where it mounts to the frame and got the following dimensions.

  • Tools Needed to Install Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75038 on a 1988 Ford F-150
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75038 does fit a 1988 Ford F-150 with a standard or step bumper. I have included a link to a video to the right showing a typical installation. The installation instructions, which I have also linked to the right, state you need a drill, 1/2 inch drill bit, 3/4 inch wrench, 7/8 inch wrench, and a torque wrench up to at least 95 foot pounds. Any tools listed that you do not have can usually be borrowed from an auto parts store. If you plan on doing some towing...

  • Will the Draw Tite Hitch # 41004 fit a 1992 F-Super Duty/F450 W/Liftgate
  • I do not have a confirmed fit for your 1992 Ford F450 with the Eagle Lift liftgate, but I spoke to my contact at Draw Tite and he informed me of a way for you to determine by taking a few measurements on your vehicle. He said that from the rear most mounting hole to the end of the receiver tube is 10-7/8 inches. So if you can find that hole and then measure out 10-7/8 inches and that distance is not too far for your lift gate to still work you should be good. My contact did say that...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Options for 1995 Ford F350
  • We have many different hitches compatible with your truck. The best choice for you will depend on what you're wanting to tow. For lighter duty towing, I'd recommend the Class III hitch, part # 75038. The hitch has a 5000 lb towing/500 lb tongue weight capacity. For a heavier duty Class IV, the Curt # 14001 with its 10000 lb towing and 1000 lb tongue weight capacity would be a good choice. For a higher capacity, B & W offers a Class V with a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver opening, part # BWHDRH25122...

  • Dimension and Installation of a Hitch on a 1995 Ford F150
  • The distance between the mounting holes from left to right when measured on center is 35 inches. You will want to push the hitch as far to the front of the vehicle against the rivet. To center the hitch on the frame rails you would want to find a reference point on both frame rails and then make sure that the hitch sits an equal distance from that point on both side of the vehicle. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Can the Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper for a 1996 Ford F-150 Tow a 4,000 Pound Trailer
  • The Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper with installation kit # 20002-92230 is rated for 800 pounds tongue weight and 8,000 pounds gross trailer weight. However, you will need to consult the truck owners manual to determine the towing capacity of your 1996 Ford 1-50. Whichever is lower, the bumper or the truck, is the capacity you need to go by. Another option is to just install a higher rated trailer hitch, # 75038, which is rated for 800/8,000 pounds as well. But again you will go by...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 1979 Ford Bronco
  • It sounds like you are trying to determine if the distance from the mounting point to the hitch opening is large enough to clear your bumper. If you have a deep drop bumper you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 87480. If you have a standard bumper you would want the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75038. The Reese Hitch part # 36025 you referenced would not be the correct hitch for you so I would not recommend it for you. I attached installation videos for you to check out.
