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.

Video Transcript for Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD

Today we are going to show you an install on part number 65050. This is a front mount hitch and we are installing it on 07 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD. To begin our install we have to remove our license plate holder which is the square object in the center there. That has to come off and whats next is we have to cut a hole in the bumper so that the receiver can poke through. The plate is riveted on so we will have to drill out these rivets and just pop them off. What seems to work is grab the backside of the rivet with a pair of pliers and drill out the front and it comes right apart. Our next step is to start measuring so we can knock out our hole in the bumper. We are going to start with a common measurement. Basically we are going to start from this bolt right here.

Center this bolt then we are going to measure it all the way to the ground and get a reference point from there. We got our measurement and it came out to 26 inches of course yours might vary. Our next step is subtract 3-1/4 of an inch. Then that gives us 25-1/4. Then we mark that difference from the front of the bumper to the ground. The next mark we have to measure from here up 3-1/4 inches. Off the mark you made from top to bottom you have to go right and left 1 inch and 5/8 and make your marks. Measure across and double check yourself with 3 inches and 1/4. You might want to double check the bottom edge to your marks and make sure they are square. Then go ahead and drill 4 holes and we will take our knife and cut it all out. What we need to do is take this nut off and loosen this bolt up. One this side starting from the the toe hook but then do the same thing on the other side.

Now on the driver side you gotta remove the entire bolt but we will just leave the bolts in on this side for now. At this point we can go ahead and install our hitch on the one bolt thats hanging through. Then we will take our other bolt and put it on the backside. Once we have the hitch up there take a few minutes to match it to the holes on the frame. You do have some adjustment washers to move it left or right depending on the vehicle. Ours fits up there snug without any washers what so ever. So we are going to go ahead and just start installing our hardware. In most instances the holes are a little off center. Now we will take a measurement and we will see how much we can move it on the other side so it is nice and even. Next we want to install our hardware it goes to this access hole here. What we need to do is this plate and this handle nut. The bolt you can just slip into place, and the handle nut you can just bend them at will. Then it will go around any obstacle you want it to go around. On a tow loops we will go ahead and put the bolts back on. Once we got our bolts lugged down we will be ready for the final torque. Alright and there you have it for part install 65050 on our 2007 Silverado 3500 HD.

Excellent quality, fast shipping and great customer service. The Draw-Tite 65050 is an excellent product. It is tough to find a front receiver Hitch that allows you to retain decent approach angle. My truck goes into some really rough back country elk hunting spots and I need every bit of ground clearance I can get. This is the only front receiver that allows stock clearance. I intend to use it to haul mountain bikes while my pop up camper is on. Great product, I highly recommend. 451390

VERY Easy install - not quite centered but that's no biggie - Used it already to fine tune the travel trailer into it's tight parking space. Also will be used for carhauler/utility trailer parking and canoe hauling and bike hauling and winch mount - Multi use deal! ; ) 281768

Easy install, rugged build quality, and nice coating. I'm excited to start using it. My only criticism is that not all trucks are alike. The instructions for locating the area in the plastic shroud to be removed could be revised. I cut out more material than I would have like, yet I followed the instructions very carefully. 433165

I have used my front hitch dozens of times this past year and it has paid for itself time and time again. Reaching behind the bumper to get the hitch pin is a bit of a pain, but well worth it. People ask me how I like it and I sing praises every time, just wish I had bought and installed one sooner. 579266

I put this hitch on the front of our 2009 GMC Sierra. The plastic fascia is not as smooth as the Silverado but by marking with masking tape and cutting from both sides, I got the hole cut. After that it was easy lifting with a jack and bolting it on. The box came with some wear and the paint was chipped off in places but a rattle can took care of the exposed metal. 555709

OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SUPPORT! Hitch fit on my 2010 Chevy 2500 perfectly, absolutely no issues. Installation less than 45 minutes, not including cutting the hole for the hitch. I took my time with that - probably 50 minutes of very careful measuring and cutting. End result, very happy customer. 554922

The Draw-Tite hitch I ordered was a perfect fit for my Chevy 2500 HD. Installation was a snap taking about 25 min. Watching the installation video took all the guess work out of the project. I also ordered the American flag receiver cover,and it looks great on the truck! 120199

Nice of you to follow up Patrick. Still love my hitch! I also purchased a goal post rack to go with it. I use it to carry kayaks on the top of my truck when I pull my fifth wheel. I have received a lot of attention and questions about it since and have send people your way.

Easy to install, every thing fit as described. Order this unit because I can hide it behind the license plate. I cut out the license plate holder so that I could use it when not using the hitch. Great shipping and communication. 55830

This was my third order in 2 months from eTrailer with great service each time. I will definitely check with them first next time I need something they might have and would recommend them to others. This hitch was mounted on an '08 3500 and I was able to leave the stock license plate holder mounted. I'll remove the license plate for those times I need to use the hitch. Once mounted, the hitch is virtually invisible behind the front facia and does not cause any problems with clearance. Very satisfied with the product. 7873

We do not offer a front hitch that mounts directly to the front tow hooks, but both of the front hitches mount below the tow hook locations.

  • The 1500 and 2500 series 2010 Chevy Silverados have different frame designs. Because of that the # C31012 that you referenced would only fit a 1500 model. If you have a 2500 model you would instead want the # 65050 as I checked and it has been confirmed as a fit.

  • Recommended Kayak Carrying Solution for Silverado 2500 Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
  • When you need to transport kayaks or canoes on a truck that's already towing a 5th wheel trailer or carrying a slide-in camper, often the best solution is to install a front-mount hitch and a load extender like the Darby # DTA944. This is a steel load support bar for 2-inch hitches. We also offer the bar as part of a kit along with a truck cab roof crossbar. This complete kayak transport system is part # DTA944-968-924.

  • Can 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 Front Hitch be Used to Push a Trailer with 750 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • All of the available front mount hitches including # 65050 for your 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 have a vertical load limit of 500 pounds. However, it is possible that since you will be pushing the trailer around the tongue weight could be lower if the front of the trailer was higher than the back or if you could move weight far enough back on the trailer to reduce the tongue weight. If you aren't pushing the trailer around very far or for very long then I wouldn't anticipate an issue.
