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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field.

Fits perfectly, i like that it comes with the guide wires makes it all go smooth and easy! Install was maaaybe 30minutes and super simple, using it for winch set up, it is perfect (1993 chevy 1500 silverado extended cab) no modifications needed to my truck! Definitely a cheaper solution than to buying a modified bumper for winching. Nice sturdy product. 470499

Solid well built product and took me about an hour to install everything lined up perfectly. Plus etrailer is fantastic. Im not use to companies doing what the say, but they proved me wrong. I ordered a front receiver hitch for my winch. Had to have it next day in order for me to complete some work in an area I knew I was going to get stuck and it was here next day. You have a customer for life. 456838

By far the best item I've bought for my truck.Always use it for winching people out who are stuck in mud,sand sometimes myself and moving trailers.Was super easy to order didn't take long to recieve it, and was super easy to mount and bolted right under the front frame. Easy and is super reliable.Thank you etrailer. 485366

Product has worked flawlessly. Was easy to install but needed to re-read the instructions a few times to make sure I understood. Have bought three hitches so far. Mounted this one on the front of the suburban to carry extra bikes for a bike tour. Will be getting two more son. 449714


Comments

We have used the trailer for multiple bike tours and for moving our camper into tight spots. We have also helped three friends install their new hitches, from e-trailer, after they saw ours. albeit, the instructions were a hair off on the last 2014 Outback Expect to get two more this coming year for the kids Subarus. Again, thanks for a good product.

my draw-tite front mount trailer hitch 2" receiver was shipped promptly and arrived as promised. My 1997 chev Silverado 4x4 has a 34" frame. It was easy to install in less than an hour with no drilling required. My tow hooks had long enough bolts for me to reuse them so I only had to use 2 rear bolts. If they had not fit it would have required I buy longer bolts. 596489

Installed this on the front of my 1994 Suburban 1500. Installation was straightforward. I could have done it alone, but it was definitely easier with a second person to hold it in place while I bolted it in, hand me hardware, etc. The holes matched up perfectly. The hitch is strong. I mounted a snowplow in it and have used it several times this winter. Handy tip: The threading wires make bolt installation much easier, but I learned to only thread the wire onto the bolt one or two revolutions. That's plenty for the job at hand and if you thread it on more than that you'll have a hard time getting it off. 593615

Avrrage fit. Did not have to drill out any holes. Did have to use spacers to drop the hitch down some as it was designed to fit too high. Even with spacers, still had to cut out part of license plate holder. Also had to grind off a sloppy weld to mount my tow hooks. Happy no drilling involved. Good value. 577525



- 65005

I use this primarily to mount my winch. I also have the stock tow hooks mounted, so I only used 2 bolts from the mount kit. As long as the winch angle recommendations are followed this mount should last a very long time. 565904

Overall great product and fit nicely! I was able to replace the apron and license plate holder afterwards with little modification, just had to cutout for the hitch. The photo shows how I plan to use it so not much stress for the hitch but it feels extremely solid, I’m sure it would be great for winching. 481166

I was preparing the vehicle for the installation when the UPS truck arrived. Installed the front hitch/receiver in around 20 minutes (Drawtite products always fit without any problems). Etrailer is very easy to do business with and they have a very good support/expert team with all the information you will ever need to install anything they sell with your delivery notice. 460536

I received the front receiver hitch for my 1994 Chevrolet Ck series today and could not wait to get it installed a try it out. It is very well built and not too heavy. I am almost eighty years young and had no trouble at all with the installation all by myself. Since I have no ramps to drive the front upon, I simply used a small scissor type jack to raise the hitch into place and bolted it up with no weight upon my body at all. Special thanks go out to your planners who thought up and included the "pull wires" in the package. They made it very easy for me to get all bolts into the frame holes to begin the installation. I think it would have been an almost impossible task without those wires. As soon as I got it done, I connected up to a 20 foot utility trailer and moved it into place with ease. I will be doing much more of that in the future. Parking utility trailers while driving forward is much easier than doing it in reverse. Thanks for being there for us and for stocking such fantastic merchandise. 436989

Definitely a quality hitch that fit perfectly. The only issue I had while mounting on my 1999 GMC K2500 Suburban was that my bumper supports were in the way of installing the provided hardware in the most forward holes so I bought 4 longer grade 8 bolts to install through the tow hooks using the original threaded steel stock. An extra $10 saved me from taking the front end apart. 410390

I installed this receiver hitch on the front of my Dad's 1991 Chevy Silverado so he could mount his winch to the front of his truck without having to buy a brush guard. Shipping was fast, I received the hitch in about 4 business days. The box was pretty banged up, it looked like the shipping company was using it as a shot putt but nothing inside was damaged. I do thing that it could have been packaged a little better. There was nothing to keep the hitch from moving around inside the box. Installation was a breeze! It came with all of the mounting hardware you need and even came with a wire to fish through the frame to pull the bolts through, which was a huge timesaver. All of the holes lined up perfectly and it fit snug in between the frame. I had it installed in about 25 minutes. 361630

Thank you guys keep up the outstanding work. 306929

The rating is based solely on visual examination of the front mounted receiver. The quality appears to be very good. The receiver will be used to mount a winch but I have not yet installed or used the receiver so that could change for the better or worse depending on the results 281677


Comments

When I mounted my winch tray the holes for the retaining pin did not line up well. It is difficult to and remove the pin. Cant tell if its the receiver or the winch tray. Maybe a combination of both. Fortunately, I dont have to install the winch often so itll work for now.

I have used this hitch on the front of my 96 suburban for a year now. I use it for carrying beach chairs and coolers when we use the drive on beach. It was fairly easy to install to the existing frame and I was able to leave the tow hooks in place. I really like the supplied wires that allow you to fish the bolts into the areas where your hand does not fit. 251304

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Front Hitch Fit for 1989 Chevrolet K2500 4WD
  • Curt front-mount trailer hitch # 31042 will not fit your 4WD 1989 Chevrolet K2500's 34-inch frame width. The other option from Draw-Tite, front hitch # 65005, will fit your truck so long as it is not the Crew Cab. This hitch install will require drilling, some fascia trimming and relocation of your license plate using a bracket like # 5443.

  • I have included a picture. In the picture the top drawing is the Draw-Tite hitch # 65005. You can see how the receiver sits just below the bumper (and will stick through the optional lower fascia piece, if present). The bottom installed picture is from a customer who installed the Curt hitch # 31042. It is also below the bumper but appears to hang down lower than the Draw-Tite hitch. based on this the Draw-Tite hitch is going to provide better ground clearance.

  • Front-Mount Trailer Hitch for 1994 Chevrolet C/K Series 1500 Pickup
  • A front-mounted hitch sure does make life easier when its time to move your trailer around. For your 1994 Chevrolet C/K Series 1500 Pickup you can use Curt's front-mount hitch # 31042 for a no-drilling installation (as long as your frame does not measure 34-inches outside to outside). If you prefer a lower-cost option we offer the Draw-Tite # 65005. This does require some drilling and fascia trimming for installation and you'll need a license plate relocation bracket too, part # 5443.

  • If your 1997 Chevy truck is a 2500 or 3500 and is 2WD then you'd want the part # 65021 for a front hitch or if it was a 4WD truck you'd instead want the # 65005. These both attach to the truck frame though as that's much stronger than the bumper of your vehicle.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 1994 Chevy K2500 4x4
  • According to Draw-Tite, the Front Mount Receiver, # 65005, will fit your 1994 Chevy K2500 4x4. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. For any accessories you may put in the hitch, I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # e98882, to secure them in the hitch and deter theft. I have included a link to a video review of the lock for you.

  • Will Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch 31042 Fit a 1994 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Silverado designation describes a trim class on the C/K series Chevy pickups in the 1994 model year. Front hitch # 31042 is a fit for all C/K models in this year as long as they have four wheel drive and do not have a 34 inch wide frame. If your vehicle is a 2 wheel drive model, or your outside frame width is at 34 inches, you would instead use Draw-Tite front hitch # 65005, which fits all the 1500 models. I have included links to the installation instructions for both hitches,...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2000 Chevy Silverado Z71 1500
  • The Draw-Tite front mount hitch part # 65021 fits the Chevy 2500 and 3500 trucks with an 8-lug wheel. Since you have a 1500 series, this hitch will not fit your truck. Do you have the 2000 Chevy Silverado z71 1500? If so, you can use Draw-Tite part # 65023. If you have a 2000 Chevrolet C/K LS with a 6 foot bed, part # 65005 will fit your 1500. I will provide links the the products I have recommended, as well as links to the installation instructions for your review. You can also click...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 1992 Chevy C1500 Truck
  • For your 1992 C1500 pickup truck you would want either the Curt Hitch part # 31042 that you referenced or the Draw Tite Front Hitch part # 65005 that will hang higher than the Curt. The # 31043 is for 2500 and 3500 series C Series trucks so it would not work for you. The # 65005 will require fascia trimming and drilling for installation. Since the Curt hitch hangs lower it would not require that the fascia be trimmed.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1989 Chevy C2500 Pickup Truck
  • We do have some front mount hitches that fit a 1989 Chevy C2500 pickup but # 65005 only fits the 4-wheel drive models. For a 2-wheel drive we have # 65021. It fits as long as the truck is not a crew cab model and as long as it has 8-lug wheels. We also have Curt front hitch # 31043.

I have included links to the...

  • How to Mount an Electric Winch on a 1993 Chevy C/K Series Pick-Up
  • I do have an option that will allow for you to mount a winch on your 1993 Chevy C/K Series Pick-Up but we do not have a winch mounting plate specific to your vehicle or the winch at this time. In order to mount a winch on your vehicle, I recommend using the a hitch mounted winch plate like the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate part # C31010. As long as the mounting holes on your Badland 9K are 10" long x 4-1/2" wide apart or 6-1/2" long x 4-1/2" wide apart, then this winch...

  • Will Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Receiver # 65005 Fit 1989 Blazer K-5 4WD
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Receiver, part # 65005, will fit the full-size Chevrolet Blazer for model years 1992 through 1994. It will not fit your 1989 Blazer. There is currently no front-mount hitch receiver available for your vehicle. I confirmed this with my technical contact at Draw-Tite. We do offer a rear hitch receiver for your 1989 Blazer, the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch hitch, part # 75129. This rear hitch is rated for 500-lbs tongue weight, and is also rated for use with...

  • Recommended Front Hitch, Snow Plow and Front-Axle Suspension Jounce Spring Kit for 1994 K2500 4x4
  • For your 1994 Chevy K2500 4x4 the front-mount hitch I recommend is the no-drill Curt model # 31042 which fits so long as you do NOT have a 34-inch frame width. This hitch offers a 500-lb vertical load rating, plenty for a snow plow like the 82-inch K2 # K2AVAL8219 or one of the others shown on the linked page. With a heavy front-end plow load on the truck's suspension you might want to consider a suspension helper spring kit to help offset that load and reduce front sag. If your K2500...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 1989 Chevy C2500 for Snow Plow
  • I would go with the Curt front hitch part # 31042 over the Draw Tite part # 65005 as the Curt hitch has a lower hitch tube which we have found works better with snow plows. A lower hitch means the plow doesn't have to drop as far from the hitch which means less leverage on the plow assembly and hitch.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Options for a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD 4x4
  • If your 2000 Chevy is a C/K series then you will want to use part # 31042 for Curt or part # 65005 for Draw-Tite but if your truck is the Silverado version then you will want to use part # 31108 for Curt or part # 65028 for Draw-Tite. All of the above trailer hitches have a 2" receiver tube opening with a vertical line pull rating of 9,000 lbs and a vertical load rating of 500 lbs. I have attached an installation video of the Curt Silverado hitch installed on a similar 2003 Chevy...
