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.

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Ram 3500 for a Bike Rack
  • That's a good question, there is a bit of a trade-off when comparing the front hitches part # 65063 and part # 65060 for use with a bike rack on your 2012 Ram 3500. You would have better ground clearance from the bike rack and bikes if you went with the # 65063 but you also would have less visibility with this route. The # 65060 that you also referenced would give you better visibility but your ground clearance would be diminished when compared to the other hitch. If it were me...

  • Is Drilling required to Install a Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Ram 3500
  • To install a Trailer Hitch # 65060 on a 2012 Ram 3500 you will need to drill four 1/2 inch holes in the frame of the truck. If there is no access hole in the frame rails to fishwire in the blocks and bolts then you will need to drill access holes. The blocks are the largest pieces that will have to go into the frame. The blocks measure 1/4 inch thick by 1-1/2 inches wide by 2 inches long. At the very least, if no hole is present, a hole that is slightly larger than 1-1/2 inches would...

  • Recommendations For Carrying 2 Canoes On Front Of 2012 Dodge 3500 While Towing A Fifth Wheel
  • Although we can come up with components that would work, because the canoes would be carried upside down, and hanging so far out in front of the vehicle roof, the force of the wind the canoes would experience while driving down the road will try to lift the canoes, which can actually place more force on the roof rack than it was designed for. I would not recommend carrying the canoes while using the fifth wheel. With that being said and if you still wish to install a system that would...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 4WD Diesel
  • Diesel models of the 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 are not excluded so front mount hitch # 65060 will fit your truck. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. They do show the small area that needs to be trimmed on the bottom of the front fascia. If your truck has front tow hooks you can also use # 65063. I have included a link to the installation instructions for this hitch as well. This hitch will put the receiver at the same level as the tow hooks.

  • Installation of Front Mounted Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ram 3500
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65060 is a confirmed fit for 2010-2012 Ram 3500 models whether 2WD or 4WD. I reached out to my contact at Draw-Tite and he suggested to have you measure the hitch at the bottom and top to ensure the width is correct. It should be 41-1/4 inches wide at both the top and bottom. If It got tweaked in transport, you can often bend it back without issue. There are no spacers needed for this installation.

  • For your 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD the only front hitch we have as a confirmed fit is the Draw Tite part # 65063. The # 65060 that you mentioned will not fit your truck.
