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.

Easy install even while laying on your back. Total time involved was one hour 20 minutes and that included removing, trimming, and re-installing the air dam. Very satisfied with this product and the service. 135339

Hidden Hitch front hitch installed easily in about 2 hours. Hitch was in good shape from shipping but the etrailer shipping box was mostly destroyed by the freight handlers ??! Good news is---the hitch being one piece with all the parts secured to it by plastic wrap was not breakable. Installed hitch with a perfect fit. Trimming the front air dam below the bumper was easy with a hacksaw and Exacto knife. 398939

This is a very well-built product. It gives a lot of confidence. I won't ever have anything more than a bike rack attached to it, so it's a bit overkill for my use, but that's ok. I installed it on a 2010 GMC Yukon. It does push up on the center of the front bumper plastic even after cutting the air dam. Overall, I'm happy with it. 628103

Installed on 2011 Silverado Z71 4 X 4. It took about an hour to install. The hitch is made of thick steel and should be very strong. Installation kit included everything needed. My truck has an aluminum skit plate that I needed to trim a 1/4 " notch out of at the spot the hitch meets the cross member. I needed to trim the lower part of the air dam too. The instructions say to install extra washers between the cross member and the hitch to make it level, the front of this one is angled up slightly with no washers installed. I also had to touch up the chipped paint so it won't rust as quickly. 430112

We installed my new front mount trailer hitch this morning on my 2003 1500 4x4 pickup (new body style) we opened the box at 7:39 AM and complete at 8:14 AM (35 MINUTES) The instructions and materials furnished to me by you was top shelf.I had my truck up on my service rack which I am sure helped the install but I know I could have installed laying on the ground in less than 1 hour.Obviousley your R&D Department are doing there job and understand a lot of us self perform work on our vehicles.I do not want to leave out the order process and the people that pull orders and the shipping department everything went text book for me. I took pictures of the entire install I can email from my phone if I could get a email address I do not know how to add them to this review 25872

I use it on my truck to move my trailered boats. Much easier to push a boat backwards with truck than to back with truck. Especially in tight spots. Note: I use a 5 wire trailer wiring kit (3 wires cutoff) to disable brakes on surge trailer brakes when pushing backwards. 576481

The hitch I received work perfect. The only thing is if you have tow hooks you will half to remove them. It makes it a lot easier to install hitch. Then replace tow hooks. 138876

nicely made. Good instructions. Mounting holes in the hitch did not align exactly right with the truck frame holes - close but had to really work at it. Finally went in correctly and the hitch is solid. I took the entire air dam off because it looked like we'd have to cut almost in two anyway. 121326

So far so good. No complaints.

Very sturdy hitch, extremely easy install. If you already have your air dam removed there is no cutting or modification at all, completely bolt on. Make sure you have both front load bearing washers centered before you completely bolt down the hitch. I didn't need any alignment washers on the back brace it was very level as is, if you are using this for winching keep in mind it will affect your approach exit angles. Overall a great product! 77306

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Fascia Trimming Required for Front Mount Hitch on 2014 Chevy Suburban LTZ
  • I reached out to a representative of Draw-Tite who explained that the front mount trailer hitch # 65052 that fits your 2014 Chevy Suburban LTZ will require trimming "up to the bottom of the bumper fascia" and sent the accompanying photo showing the part that needs to be trimmed.

  • Front-Mount Trailer Hitch for 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • Yes, the front-mount trailer hitch receiver you referenced, Draw-Tite # 65052, is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. We do in fact offer another comparably-rated front hitch for your truck, the Curt # 31322. Both hitches install using included hardware, both will require a bit of trimming of the front fascia, and neither one requires any drilling. For reference I have linked an installation video for the Curt hitch as well as written installation instructions and...

  • Recommended Front Hitch for a 2008 GMC 1500 4x4 that Provides the Most Clearance
  • Currently, 2 front mount hitches fit your 2008 GMC 1500 4x4. They are the Curt # 31322 and Draw-Tite # 65052. Both have a 500 pound vertical pull and 9,000 pound line pull. The specifications on the Draw-Tite hitch # 65052 from the top of the mounting brackets to the bottom of the receiver hitch is 7-3/4 inches. See diagram I included. You will need to measure down from the bottom of your frame 7-3/4 inches and from that point measure to the ground to obtain your clearance amount. Curt...

  • Difference Between Curt Hitch # 31322 and Draw Tite Hitch # 65052
  • Both the Curt Front Hitch part # 31322 and the Draw Tite part # 65052 are a fit for the 2011 GMC Sierra 1500. They have similar prices, similar capacities and will give you a hitch opening in about the same location. Biggest difference is they are made by different brands and use different parts of the vehicle to mount the side brackets. Since the Draw Tite is totally welded and does not have any sections that are bolted together it would be what I would go with.

  • Distance From Center of Hitch Pin Hole To Bumper on CURT Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 31322
  • I contacted our representative at CURT about the CURT Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 31322. He informed me that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole, to the front edge of the bumper measures approximately 7 inches. We do not have a Hidden Hitch front mount hitch available for the 2011 Silverado, but we do have a Draw-Tite model, part # 65052. The Draw-Tite hitch distance should be near the same distance as the CURT hitch as it will sit near the same location. When using...

  • Front Hitch Receiver Compatible with 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The front mounted hitch from your 2010 Silverado will not fit the 2019 model. For that newer truck you will need the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65082 which is rated for 500 lbs vertical load. You may also be interested in the Front Mount Trailer Hitch License Plate Relocation Bracket # 5443. The 2010 version like # 65052 had very different mounting locations and only fit 2007-2013 model years.

Both 2-inch hitches are rated for 500-lbs of vertical load (tongue weight) and for a 9000-lb line pull. There are no higher-rated front hitches for your truck.

  • What Needs to be Trimmed to Install Draw-Tite Front Receiver on a 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The part that needs to be trimmed on your 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500 to install Draw-Tite front receiver # 65052 is the front air dam which is below the bumper. It can either be trimmed or removed for installation and if it were me I would just remove it. A customer sent us a picture which I have included here showing the area needing to be trimmed. I have included a link to the instructions for you with additional information.

  • Can Dual Hitch Adapter Be Used with Weight Distribution System
  • Makers of weight distribution systems generally do not recommend using any sort of hitch adapter/extender with their systems. The reason is that such adapters/extenders like Malone # MPG544 and Curt # D-192 reduce your trailer hitch's tongue weight rating, and by a full 50-percent. The loss of hitch TW capacity derives from the change to the overall geometry of the set-up; the whole WD head and shank will be further from the hitch and this applies extra leverage on the hitch tube, reducing...

  • Can a Front Mount Trailer Hitch and Westin Bull Bar be Installed Together on a 2009 GMC Sierra 1500
  • The issue is that bull bars, grille guards, base plates, and front mount trailer hitches all attach to basically the same place on the vehicle frame and/or occupy much of the same space in front of the vehicle. What this means is you could have one at a time only. But that might not be the case on your 2009 GMC Sierra 1500. Looking at the instructions for the Westin Bull Bars it appears that mount to the insides of the frame rails like # 32-2275 as an example. Draw-Tite front mount hitch...

I get why you want a nicer profile, however the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65052 needs that space to insert a hitch pin.

  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65052 is not a confirmed fit for your 2010 Chevy Suburban Z71. The Z71 is excluded from their fit, so I recommend the Curt # C31012 instead. It will required drilling and some trimming of the front air dam. The 2 inch receiver opening is standard for all front mounted hitch applications. This will hang down about 2 inches from the bottom of your air dam to help you determine your ground clearance. I've attached a video of a similar...

  • Front Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2012 GMC Sierra Denali 1500
  • Yes, we can offer you two choices in a front-mount hitch receiver for your 2012 GMC Sierra Denali 1500. Both products, the Curt # 31322 and Draw-Tite # 65052, install without drilling and include all required mounting hardware. They also share identical capacities. It will be necessary to do some trimming of the front fascia to make room for the receiver tube on either hitch. A helpful installation video and article are linked for you.

Often times the lower hitches are preferred for people looking to plow snow like with the K2 # K2AVAL8219.

  • Which Front Hitch for 2007 Chevy Suburban Does Not Require Drilling to Install
  • Both the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65052 and the Curt front hitch part # C31012 are a fit for your 2007 Chevy Suburban. Since the Draw Tite does not require drilling to install it would be the hitch I would go with. Both will require either trimming a square in the lower fascia or removing it altogether so the Draw Tite still has the advantage since it's no-drill. This would work great with a bike rack as well.

However, there may be some minor trimming of your fascia. Also, as with any front mounted hitch, you will want to be cautious not to block your headlights and of a lack of airflow into your engine.
