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 - 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.

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

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

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

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

  • 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 # TH9028. 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 to t

  • 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, # 359

  • 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 so

  • 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.

  • 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.
