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.

I installed this myself on the front of my 2018 Ram 1500 for a light duty snowplow. It required drilling a couple of holes in the frame of the truck which was clearly disclosed in the product install information available to me prior to making the purchase decision, so that was fine. It was also made clear that I would probably need to remove my factory tow hooks, and that was indeed the case. Not a problem for me, as the hitch is a lot more useful to me than the hooks were. I used the hitch all winter plowing several residences and had zero issues or concerns. A good value, easy enough to install, and I'm glad I bought it.

Excellent customer service. A few chips on the lock and load cargo trailer out of the box (looks to be factory issue) shipping was professional items wrapped and well protected. Fast shipping. Would buy from this seller again.

This front-mount hitch works great for putting travel trailer into tight RV Garage (West Coast Metal Building). I don't have a straight shot into the garage, and trying to back the trailer into the garage is do-able but takes many, many tries. This hitch makes it easy to maneuver the trailer while facing forward in the truck. Since the front hitch receiver is relatively low to the ground, I needed to get a high-rise ball mount. The riser part of this interferes a little but with the truck's under-bumper flexible fascia, but does not damage it. I also purchased a 2" black rubber hitch receiver cover (plug) to keep water out of the receiver. One thing - be careful when pulling up to parking lot curbs. Ground clearance of this hitch is relatively low and I have hit a couple of curbs with it. Thankfully the hitch itself and the mounting points on my Ram 1500 are very strong, and no damage was done other than mangling the rubber hitch receiver cover a bit. Note: I built a wood frame to support the hitch during installation, since I did not have a helper to hold it while installing the attachment bolts.

This front hitch receiver for my 2016 RAM 1500 works great! The installers did not have to cut the facia under the nose of the truck. The hitch fits tight against the facia, but no cutting needed. They did have to drill some holes, but I used professional installers, so I'm not worried. This finally solves my problem of not having anywhere to mount my two bikes while towing my 23' camper. The options for camper bike racks don't work for us for several reasons. Glad I can take my bikes with me on my Saris rack. I purchased an adapter and pin to allow my 1 1/4" bike rack to fit in the 2" receiver. I also purchased the hitch receiver cover separately.

Installation was easy and pretty quick. My only complaint, which has nothing to do with the quality of the hitch. Is that I use it to mount my 12000 winch to the front. Reduces the attack angle greatly.

I purchased the front mount hitch for my 2018 Ram 1500. It is now fully installed and working great. Its a 2 man job for a while during the mounting and drilling process. The directions were good. I watched some you tube videos of the process to help me better visualize all that needed to be done. I specifically want to give a shout out to the staff at etrailer for the ordering process and the follow up they had with shipping and some follow up questions I had. I talked to at least 3 different people by either phone or email and all were very helpful and knowledgeable on the products I purchased. I will purchase from etrailer again as they have exceptional service.

The hitch was fairly inexpensive (made in Mexico) and fitment was right. The biggest challenge was grinding the holes for the spacer blocks to slide into the frame. Two hex bolts and two carriage bolts with nuts mount it to frame. Sits pretty low to the ground; thus the skid shield. Should make it easier to move trailers and also act as a mounting point for a winch.

It is strong and it works great with the exception of having to drill holes in the frame to mount it.

The receiver has worked well and is a good fit for the plow blade that I purchased. However, the receiver was supposed to be bolted into place on my truck, but it didn't completely match up. Two of the bolt positions on the receiver lined up with holes in my truck's frame, but two of them didn't and we had to weld it into place. The weld might be a sturdier solution, but it was a bit frustrating that we couldn't simply bolt the receiver into place as expected.

Besides making the holes a little bit bigger so the metal spacers fit, This job was a breeze. I did it by myself in an hour and 40 minutes. Product is awesome and made 100%. Shipping was extremely fast. Will be ordering one for my Chevy Silverado. Highly recommend.

George, The hitch performed very well. Once I got it on & the blade on I started doing what everyone said I couldn't, clearing the snow away from a plant for employees & truck traffic. I had to add 2 plates on my Nissan for strength than hit the road blowing-going. Thank you, Bill W

I received the package today and the cardboard container was torn apart. The staples were not holding anything together and it was taped shut like someone was looking through the container. I'll say one thing though, the receiver hitch was not damaged in the slightest. Good thing it was steel. lol I would recommend this product to anyone I know. I would not recommend sending this by UPS again. Good thing all the bolts were packaged tight against the receiver with tape. Did not attach it yet but I will in the near future. Excellent product. The price was right also.

This front receiver hitch works great on my 2015 Ram 1500 4x4. It was easy to install without any need to modify anything on my truck. This hitch makes getting my boat out of my garage & backing it up my driveway much easier than before. Great product & great customer service. I will buy again from etrailer. I picked mine up at their St. Louis location when I figured out they were close to my home.

I ordered this product for my RAM 1500 so I could mount a plow on it. It has worked fantastic last year and I look forward to yet another year of snow removal. You just cannot go wrong with the products that eTrailer offers. Great pricing, fast delivery and easy installation instructions. Thank you!

PRETTY EASY INSTALLATION, ONLY. THING IT SHOULD BE NOTED TO REAM OUT THE 1/2 DRILL HOLES AS THE WIRE BOLT PULL WIRE IS VERY TIGHT. WIRE BOLT PULLER WILL FIT THROUGH THE WHOLE BUT WHEN PLACED ON THE BOLT IT EXPANDS AND MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO THREAD THROUGH THE 1/2 INCH DRILLED HOLE.

Last year, I purchased a Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver from e-trailer. The receiver was fairly easy to mount with the average shop tools. A 1/2" drill and I believe about a 1/2" bit was necessary for some frame hole modification. Other than that, the mounting only needed standard tools. One minor problem, seems I had older instructions and they said to notch a slot in the lower plastic bumper guard and the instructed notch did not need to be that big. You have to remove your tow hooks to mount this hitch. As for use after mounting. My driveway is long and narrow. It comes off a street that is also narrow. Without the front receiver, it is a Pain in the A$$ to back in the driveway. With the hitch, Piece of Cake. I trailer a 30' boat behind my pickup about 5,000 miles a year. I'm good at it and took pride in getting the boat in tight spots. This front receiver made trailer maneuvering so much easier since everything is right in front of you and the pivot is at the front wheels thus you can make tighter turns. If you have a truck and don't mind the front receiver cut into your plastic flange along with the loss of tow hooks. The receiver is a great addition. Besides boat maneuvering, I can hang cooler, bike or fishing rod holders in the receiver. If I had the opportunity to do it over again, I would definitely use this mount.

The hitch is built well. If you do not have the factory tow hooks than it is a perfect fit. If you do have the factory tow hooks then modification to the tow hooks or major modification to the hitch is required. The hitch comes out just under the bumper so the plastic air dam has to be cut for the hitch to protrude. The truck sits very low in the front but I do not find I hit or drag the hitch as much as I thought I would. Driving through fields it collects grass and dirt but has not hung up on anything. I have no problems driving haul roads. I mounted it so I could use a portable winch and this works fine but is to low to leave the winch in the receiver when moving. I have a 2014 ram 1500 4X4.

This hitch is an extremely useful item. It installed easily and is very heavy duty. It makes moving trailers around much easier and I use it for my snowplow too. Great item. Great service. Thanks. DG

This setup works great and is super strong. I will be using all winter with my hitch mounted plow again this year. It was worth every penny and more!

I am not considered to be "Mr. DIY," but this turned out to be easier than I thought. The biggest challenge was finding a friend who had a drill big enough to accommodate a 1/2" bit. I followed someone else's advice and loosely hung the receiver by the front two bolts to cut out the trim around the neck of the receiver. I used an oscillating tool vs a rotating tool to cut the notches to get the spacer blocks to fit through the holes. I plan on taking my travel trailer to AK, so wanted the additional flexibility a front receiver can offer for a bike rack, storage rack or winch.
