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 Pontiac G6 - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2008 Pontiac G6, we will be taking a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Custom-Fit Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 36426. Here's what our Class II hitch is going to look like once it's installed on the vehicle. You'll see that it's going to be nice and tucked up underneath the back and hardly visible with the exception of the chain tie downs and plate steel as well as the receiver tube here on the end. That's going to be 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube, heavy-duty chain tie downs on either side, and 1/2" pin hole going straight through offering a 300-pound tongue weight capacity and a 3500-pound gross towing capacity. It's going to be a fully welded design with a black powder-coat finish to help prevent any kind of rust and corrosion and add strength and durability over a long period of time. Now, we'll go ahead and give you a few measurements to assist you in selecting from hitch accessories such as bike racks, cargo carriers, and ball mounts. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground, it's going to be about 7-3/4".

From the center of the pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is going to be about 6". Located on the inside of both the bumper brackets, we're going to be placing through a bolt leader. Take the coiled part of the bolt leader, stick it through the open hole in the frame and push it out towards the outside of the bumper. Once it comes out the other side, we'll then place on our block over the coil and then thread on our carriage bolt. Once you have it threaded on, go ahead and pull it through and out the hole.

Remove the bolt leader. We'll take our block that has the round hole in it and place that over the top. Be careful not to press it back into the frame. Take a rubber band and we're going to use that to hold it in place until we get our hitch up. Let's go ahead and repeat this same process on the driver side. Now, we'll get a little help to hold up our hitch into place so we can place on our conical tooth washers and our nuts.

We'll place it over those 2 bolts that we secured. Place over our conical tooth washer with the teeth facing towards the receiver and then thread on our nut. With that one holding in place, let's go ahead and do the driver side. Using the hitch as a template, we're going to pre-drill out our holes in the bottom of the frame for our other 2 mounting points. Now, we'll finish drilling out our 1/2" holes.

Now that we have those 2 holes drilled on this side, we'll go ahead and repeat that same process on the driver side. Now, we'll go ahead and lower the exhaust at this point just to give us a little bit more room on that driver side to drill out those holes. There's going to be an exhaust hanger or isolator back here on the right and one on the driver side on the left as well as one directly in front of the exhaust muffler here in the center of the vehicle. We'll spray them down with a little spray lubricant to assist us in the removal process. We'll go ahead and use a pry bar to assist us in pulling it off. Set it behind it and peel them back. Before we move that other one, we're going to throw a safety strap underneath the exhaust so it doesn't fall under it's own weight. We'll go ahead and slide off the rubber isolator and gently let it rest down. We're going to pre-drill out our holes in the bottom of the frame for our other 2 mounting points. Now, we'll go ahead and take our 1/2" bolt leaders and run them through the holes that we just drilled to the access point located just forward. Once you have it to the access hole, go ahead and pull it down. We'll go ahead and place over our large block and slide it up into the access point. Then, we'll thread on our 1/2" bolt onto the bolt leader. We'll go ahead and repeat that for our other 3 mounting points, the 2 on each side. Now with our bolts through the hole, we can pull off our bolt leaders, place on your lock washer being careful not to push it back up into the frame, and then place on your hex nut. Now that we got those on, let's go ahead and tighten everything down. Now, we'll go ahead and torque down the nuts going through the hitch to the manufacturer specifications. Now, we can go ahead and reattach those exhaust isolators, the 2 that we have remaining on the back since we already put our front one up just to hold the exhaust up and out of the way. Go ahead and spray it down to make a little easier to slide them on. We'll finish sliding that back one on a little more and into place. Don't forget to remove your safety strap, and that will do it for our review and installation of the Draw-Tite Custom-Fit Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 36426, on our 2008 Pontiac G6.

Fit was unbelievable, could not have been any deviation. Install was moderate due to need to "fish" components through frame but tools provided in kit worked well. We used mechanics wire, (mild steel wire) to extend length. I had somewhat unique application with dual exhaust but advice from E trailer expert was on the mark and the install went smoothly. I will be a returning customer and will again rely on the experts advice as I add to my towing/cargo capacities. Having the car on a lift makes this project go a lot easier but then again if I were younger it would have been doable working in the driveway. For a small donation and flexibility in install time, I was able to use my local mechanics lift. 111645

Everything arrived just fine along with easy to read instructions. I had also watched the e-trailer video prior to starting the project. For being a hitch that is supposed to match my vehicle it did not match very well. The hitch was about 5/8 narrower then my frame rails. Becasue of this the slotted holes were at their max when I was trying to pull the bolts through. They are at a bit of an angle, but they are secure. Once I got this far it was easy to drill the remaining holes and mount the hitch. 39824

This is my third hitch from E-Trailer. We use them for mounting bike racks and pulling light trailers. Thanks for the great service. I tracked the shipment right up to my door. 35635

Chrysler LHS


Product was received in excellent shape and very quickly. Was sad that it was not as hidden as my previous hitch. I had purchased a stealth hitch for a older Chrysler LHS which was hidden up under the rear finder. The hitch I received from you went on easily. Thanks, Jim Watson 27505

Excellent hitch. My only complaint is about the instructions. When installing the bolts, you had better have a magnetic pickup handy! So that when the bolt gets stuck, you can retrieve it and try again. makes it a lot easier to install. 31608

Great product. Straight forward install. The spacers that run from the hitch to the bumper back side should to be spot welded to the hitch at the factory. This would eliminate extra parts falling off during installation. 134201
