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.

etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford Mustang - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2006 Ford Mustang, were going to install part number 24747 from Draw-Tite. All right, this is what the hitch will look like once its installed on the car. Next, well give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 13 inches and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will about 5 inches. Now, Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the rear exhaust hanger thats closest to the bumper. Then, we can pull the exhaust out a little bit to remove the hardware for the hanger thats above the muffler.

To inaudible 00:00:43 by the bumper is pretty straight forward, two bolts to remove. Now, the hanger thats above the muffler, there are two bolts removed also. One on the side of the frame, which is relatively easy to get to and the other one is at the bottom of the frame, which is really close to the muffler. We do not have to remove the exhaust on the driver side; we only have to loosen up the exhaust of the passenger side. Well also have to open up the hole on the horizontal arm of the exhaust hanger, so that we can re-install the bracket later with the hitch installed.

With our bracket loose, well go ahead and mark it to show what material we had to remove, basically we have to remove enough material, about a quarter inch; its the same thickness as the hitch, so we can re-install the hardware for it. Okay, when we install the hardware, weve found that if you put the vehicle on a lift, that if you work away from the front facing towards back its a little easier to work around to install your hardware. Now, we can go ahead and install our hardware into the frame. Well use two small holes that are diagonal from each other on the side of the frame. Well take our bolt leader; well run it through the frame and out the access hole.

Well then install our block and thread on the bolt and pull them into position. Well go ahead and push the bolt and your bolt leader back inside, but well leave the rest of the leader hanging out. Well do the same thing for the hole thats on the bottom of the frame, on the side and then well go ahead and do the same thing over on the driver side. Also, on the passenger side we need to put the muffler hanger back into place. With our hardware installed on both sides of the vehicle we can go ahead and lift our hitch into position.

You definitely want to have an extra set of hands to help you do this. Then, push the hitch up as we are pulling our bolt leaders through. Then, the hanger will fit through a slot through the hitch. Well put all that together as we are pushing it up. Then, we will have our conical toothed washer and nut. Now, you want to make sure that the teeth on the conical toothed washer are always facing towards the hitch. Well leave them loosely installed until we get all our hardware installed. Now, before we tighten down the bolts we also want to make sure that the exhaust hanger hardware, well re-install as well. All right, with all our hardware installed we can go ahead and tighten them down and then torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. There you have it for part number 24747 from Draw-Tite.

More than the hour stated for in installation but over all a very good experience, YES, I did it myself ! Heavy construction with perfect fit. I like the attention to details, no surprises. And definitely the right price! 39545

Harder to do right than the instructions indicate. The holes in my frame were not large enough to snake the flat plates and cap bolts through. The passenger side muffler rear bracket was impossible to maneuver into place after the hitch was raised in place. I adapted it to only use the vertical flange (which still needed adjusting to get rid of the 1/4 inch new offset). The product seems well fitting though, just hard to install cleanly without having seen one like it before. The exhaust on the Mustang is not very forgiving, whicj is the real problem. 104436

The Draw-Tite Sportframe Receiver Hitch that I ordered arrived in a timely manner, as promised. It fit on my Mustang, perfectly. I was amazed out how well it fit, especially after a professional trailer hitch installer, in my home town, said it couldn't be done. I would recommend the folks, and their products, at etrailer.com to anyone who needs the correct fitting towing package for their particular vehicle. They were polite and courteous, and know their customers needs. 178808

The hitch and wiring is great quality. The problem was in the lack of instruction in English for the hitch and no instructions for the wiring. There was a few wiring connectors missing also. I have installed 5 of these hitches so the mounting was not an issue for me. Might be for the first timer. For the wiring, I had to go on line to verify the wiring colors. A bit inconvenient for sure. I have conversed with a representative from the company about these issues. 124671

Great product, Liked the price and free quick shipping, arrived in 4-days. Installation was not difficult, however the directions did not say which end of fish line to insert into the the frame, I found it very easy to put in the coiled end into top hole and thread the bolt on at the large hole in lower end of frame then pull nut and plate thru the top opening. all in all it worked great. Very neat looking to. 120541

It is an excellent product. It fits the car very well. Steven C. was very helpful on the phone. The product arrived to my home very quickly. I recommend etrailer.com to anyone wanting to order a trailer hitch receiver. The only negative is that the instructions were a little too vague for a non-professional mechanic, but I'm sure that a seasoned mechanic would not have any problem with the instructions. 171249

hitch has a couple good scratches recd duting shipping (i assume). the pin holes are not 'true' so i cant get the pin through the receiver and the ball mount. i assume that's a mfg issue. now that i've gone through all the work to get it installed; i'm not going to bother trying to return it. i'll find a smaller diamter pin or make one of the holes larger. shipping was prompt and the tracker was helpful. 22389

Ordered this hitch on Wednesday and it was delivered to my front porch Friday morning - and I didn't choose special delivery! Hitch was little too challenging for me to install, but etrailer hooked me up with a local company that did the installation. Etrailer's price was $20 less thant the local dealer would have charged for the hitch. Overall very good experience. 31182

The product was good and instructions were easy to follow. I did have an issue with disconnecting the muffler hangers (above the mufflers) on my 2007 Mustang GT. I was able to get the bolts in regardless. It would have been much easier to install if I had a lift and could have taken the muffler and short tailpipe off. I was able to install in about three hours. 31109

Item came very quickly with no shipping costs. Packaging was great. I had ordered from that other big big online company but had to return because it was not shipped properly and was damaged. Item fit perfectly, but installation was difficult. Had installed by mechanics. Great item. Order from etrailer for a good purchase experience! 214826

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • What Trailer Hitches Will Fit a 2006 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • For the 2006 Ford Mustang GT, we list 2 possible trailer hitch options. First is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24747. Next we have the Hidden Hitch, # 60809. Neither hitch will accept the Invisi-Hitch, # 28451. Also, these hitches will not fit the GT/CS (California Special), Shelby GT, or GT500. Both hitches install the same and have the same specs: 200 pounds tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight capacity. Both are Class I trailer hitches with a 1-1/4 inch receiver.

  • Trailer Hitch # 24747 Installation Details, Drawbar, Hitch Ball, Lock, Wiring for 2007 Ford Mustang
  • To install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24747, on your 2007 Mustang, you may have to enlarge 1 hole using a drill and 3/8 inch drill bit. I have included a link to the installation instructions below. Step 2 mentions either drilling to enlarge a hole for the exhaust hanger, or, as an alternative, bending the exhaust hanger. To complete your towing set up, I recommend adding a drawbar, hitch ball, locking hitch pin, and trailer wiring. The recommended drawbar is the Sportframe Drawbar,...

  • Can a 2006 Ford Mustang GT Tow a Small Trailer and MX Bike with Draw Tite Hitch 24747
  • As long as the total weight and tongue weight of the loaded trailer you plan on towing is less than the weight capacities for the Draw Tite hitch part # 24747 and the towing capacities listed in the owners manual for your 2006 Ford Mustang GT you would be fine. The weight capacities for the hitch you have installed on your vehicle is 2,000 lbs total trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. If the towing capacities listed in your owners manual are less than these figures you would need...

  • Carrying 2 Bikes on a 2006 Ford Mustang with Rear Spoiler
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and she stated that none of the trunk mount bike racks will fit on a 2006 Ford Mustang if it has a rear spoiler. The spoiler will interfere with the safe mounting of the bike rack. In order to carry 2 bikes with your Mustang, you will need to install a trailer hitch, the most popular of which is # 24747. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. Then you can use a bike rack compatible with a Class I hitch like the Swagman...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation and Installation Difficulty for a 2009 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • Both the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24747, and Hidden Hitch # 60809, will install the same. I have included a link to the installation details for reference. Provided that you had the proper tools (listed in the instructions), and an assistant, you should be able to install this hitch in about an hour or so even with limited mechanical experience. It is not recommended to deviate from the installation instructions. Doing so makes the capacity of the hitch unknown and will void the warranty...

  • Will Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 24747 Fit a 2006 Ford Mustang GT With Dual Exhaust
  • The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24747, will fit a 2006 Ford Mustang GT with dual exhaust as long as it is not a California Special, Shelby GT, or GT500. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the # 24747 hitch. The first step in the instructions say to remove rear exhaust hanger and the hanger above the muffler, this will need to be done on both sides on models with dual exhaust. So you will be able to install this hitch on a vehicle with dual exhaust.

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2005 Ford Mustang Convertible with Rear Spoiler
  • Neither Thule nor Yakima recommend the use of a trunk mount bike rack on a 2005 Mustang Convertible with or without a spoiler. The bike racks cannot be safely installed on the vehicle. I do have a solution that will allow you to carry up to 2 bikes. You can install a trailer hitch like # 24747 and use a hitch mount bike rack that is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch. For a compatible bike rack I recommend the Swagman Titan, # S63400. This rack has anti-sway cradles, it can...

  • Can a 2 Inch Hitch Bike Rack be Used on a 2009 Ford Mustang With a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
  • There are not currently any 2 inch hitches available for a 2009 Ford Mustang. The best option would be to replace the bike rack with one made for a 1-1/4 inch hitch or if you will use the bike on another vehicle equipped with a 2 inch hitch, you can get a bike rack that is built for both sizes like part # S64670 or part # TH9028XT. The hitches available for your 2009 Mustang are all Class I, so you will probably be limited to 2 bikes depending on the carrier. You could use an adapter...

  • Are Stabilizing Straps Required For Carrying Bike Racks With a Draw-Tite Hitch # 24747
  • You would not need to use stabilizing straps if you were to use a Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24747 to carry a bike rack on your 2009 Ford Mustang. As long as the bike rack and bikes do not exceed the tongue capacity of this hitch you would have no problem installing a bike rack into this hitch. I attached installation instructions for this product also.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Mustang GT
  • For your 2007 Ford Mustang GT there are only 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24747. 2 inch hitches are usually only used on larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks that will have higher towing capacities. I attached an install video for this hitch as well as a couple help articles on hitch sizes.

  • Availability of a 2-Inch Trailer Hitch for a 2005 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • Only 1-1/4 inch Class I trailer hitches are offered for your 2005 Ford Mustang GT because of the 1,000 maximum towing capacity of your Mustang. The Draw-Tite # 24747 is currently the most popular and will both V6 and V8 models. I would still double-check your owners manual to find out the towing and tongue weight specifications. You don't want to exceed the tongue weight because it could damage your vehicle. Please note that you can only use Class I accessories, such as bike racks, cargo...

  • 2-Bike Trunk-Mount Carrier Recommendation for 2009 Ford Mustang Convertible Without Spoiler
  • Convertibles like your 2009 Ford Mustang can pose a challenge to fitting a trunk-mount bike carrier due to the absence of a rear hatch or roof to serve as a connection point for the rack's installation straps or cables. This makes a trailer-hitch-mounted bike rack a better choice for your Mustang. I double-checked with my technical contacts at Thule and Yakima, premier makers of excellent-quality bike racks, and I was advised that neither Thule nor Yakima recommends ANY trunk-mount racks...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • A trunk mount bike rack is not recommended for the 2007 Ford Mustang convertible because it would not be able to secure to the vehicle properly.

It's a shame you won't be able to use your nice bike rack designed for 2 inch openings, but if you would be interested in a new bike rack that is confirmed to fit this size hitch I would recommend the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670.
