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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 Dodge Ram Pickup - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2011 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Series Crew Cab 2-Wheel Drive, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Front Hitch part number 65062. This what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now, we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch such as the ball mount, bicycle rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin holes to the outermost edge of the bumper, it is approximately five inches. From the top of the opening and the receiver to the ground is approximately 8-3/4 inches. Now, let's go ahead and install our hitch.

To begin with, we're going to go ahead and look underneath the vehicle and see if the tailhooks from the factory are present or not. On this particular vehicle, there are not tailhooks that are present so we will be using the additional bolt that are supplied with the kit. We also found that when holding the hitch up and lining it up with the weld nuts that are already in the frame for the front two mounting locations that we will not need to cut a complete eight inches out of the lower balance. We found that about three inches work just fine. Now, we're going to go ahead and measure the center of the balance and mark out the area that will need to be trimmed out.

You can either do this using a rotary tool, a pair of tin snips or some other means of cutting the plastic. Now, we're ready to go ahead and put our hitch up. Before we put the new bolts into the existing weld nuts, we're going to go ahead and use a little spray lubricant and a nylon toothbrush which is part number 814092 to go ahead and clean up the thread. With the thread cleaned up, now we're ready to go ahead and raise our hitch up into place. These two locations, we'll be using a M12 hexbolt as well as two half inch conical toothed washers.

You want to make sure that the teeth on the washer face the hitch. We'll go ahead and tighten them down so that it holds the hitch in place. Next, we're going to need to use a half inch drill bit to drill the two rear locations through the holes that line up with up rear brackets. We'll be drilling into the frame on this but it's a good idea to start small with the drill bit and step up the half inch. Once we have both of our holds drilled, now we're ready to install our half inch carriage bolts as well as the spacer blocks.

We did notice however, that the openings on the side of the frame where we supposed to use the fish wire and pull the carriage bolt and the spacer block through are little small for the spacer block to fit. We had to open up the holes just a little bit using a round file and drill. Now, with the holes open up large enough for the spacer block to fit in, we'll go ahead and use the fish wire and we'll fish wire through the hole and the hitch and out this large hole on the side of the frame. Then, we'll feed the spacer block on to the fish wire followed by the half inch carriage bolt. We'll go ahead and pull the half inch carriage bolt and spacer block into place. Followed by putting the half inch conical toothed washer with the teeth facing the hitch and half inch hex nut. We'll repeat this process for both sides. Now that we have all the hardware installed, we'll go ahead and tighten everything down and then torque it to the manufacturer's specification. With that, that will conclude the installation of our Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch part number 65062 on our 2011 Dodge Ram truck 1500 Series Crew Cab in 2-Wheel Drive.

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. 708460

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. 718245

First a shout out and thanks to the individual who noted in his review that rather than enlarging holes in the vehicles frame he narrowed the block washers to fit existing holes! 2nd to the manufacturer if you made the feed wires 6 inches longer the bolts and block washers could be placed through the front of the frame and narrowing washers or enlarging existing access holes would be unnecessary! Other than that install went well! Haven’t had need to use front tow hitch yet but should work well for light duty snow plow and will a real time saver when launching boat and trailer placement. 716674

Took me about 3-4 hrs to install, it fits but beware this does require a good amount of modification. Had to drill into frame and widen the slots on the side of the frame to fit the rectangular nut (using a file attachment on my drill). Even after all the drilling is done getting the bolt through the drilled hole with the lead wire was a serious struggle because the hole is 1/2" and the bolt is 1/2" but the lead wire around the bolt adds 1/16" so I had to file a knotch for the wire to fit through. I'd recommend drilling a 9/16" hole to have more wiggle room and not fight with the wire. 4/5 for pain in the ass installation but it works great for mounting my bike rack on the front of my 2013 ram 1500, no room on my back end since I'm hauling a camper 640964

All went well, and as advertised except. The 1/2 inch drill hole required in the frame is not quite large enough. A 17/32 inch or 9/16 inch hole is required to allow for the snake coil to pull thru. An excellent product. 590634

Should fit fine on a 1500 Sport. Check out the installation instructions linked on the product page. In the PDF there is an image of the air dam that will need to be trimmed. Check out the picture and compare it to your truck.

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. 619911

Product delivery was very fast. Instructions were well written. Only issue was the width of the rectangular plates were about 1/8 inch too wide to fit into the slot in the frame. This required a few minutes on the grinder to make the plates fit. Also only required the front fascia to be trimmed the width of the tube instead of the full 8 inches. Overall took a couple hours from collecting tools to cleanup. Definitely recommend if you have a need. 541304

I ordered this front hitch as a Christmas present for me to make it easy to launch my sailboat from unimproved ramp facilities with my 2016 Ram 1500. It arrived very quickly and installed quickly with the truck on ramps, as advertised in the video, with three exceptions. First, I hung the hitch loosely in place with the bolts provided to mark the 3 inch cut on the plastic front fairing. Second, I found the cutting of the fairing to be best and easily done with a hacksaw blade after removing one of the bolts and rotating the hitch out of the way with free end resting on the ground. Third, Rather than enlarging the holes in the frame for bolt shims, it was much easier to simply grind the shims narrower to diagonally fit the existing holes. I took my time, and had it complete with just over an hour of actual work time for a perfect fit. I especially appreciate the personnel at eTrailer keeping me informed of the progress on shipment and the installation video was an excellent part of the whole experience. I would recommend this product and eTrailer as the source for a good price and for the excellent help with the installation. I'm enclosing 3 pictures of the installed unit with my Georgia Tech Hitch cover, although the installed hitch is very unobtrusive. 323883

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. 717807

I've installed the hitch on my 2017 Ram 1500 Express 4wd and it seems like a quality product...time will tell. As far as the piece itself it feels very solid and well made.The paint or powder coating is thorough and the welds look complete. On the install, the directions were easy to follow and I was able to do it without any helper. The only hang up was getting the square washer through the access hole in my frame. It didn't fit nor would it have set flush on the inside bottom of the frame due to its width. I had to trim an 8th of an inch off the long side of both washers to get them in. Other than that though, it all went pretty smooth. I only gave four stars for having to modify a supplied piece. 637523

Super strong well made front trailer hitch installed. My tow hooks would not work with it, but it has tow hooks built in, so that is a great feature. After drilling holes in the truck frame for the back two mounting flanges, I was amazed at how well the fishing wires provided pulled the bolts through the frame to the proper place, like magic. Thanks for the very well thought out installation hardware. Two fishing wires were provided, and you will need both, so be careful not to lose one, since they can only be used one time. I am very pleased with the front trailer hitch, and now I look forward to being able to maneuver my boat and trailer more easily in my tight parking situation. This will eliminate the major headache of trying to back up the trailer in a nearly impossible spot. 615492

The product itself seems beefy enough but there are a couple issues. I have 2016 ram 1500 4x4 and and the part of the hitch that bolts to the frame is about 1/4” to short. The spacer squares that keep the carriage bolt doesn’t fit in the designated hole in the frame so you have to grind off roughly 1/8”. Also I you won’t be able use your tow hooks unless you have a cutting torch and welder and are a pretty decent fabricator. I’ve installed it but if I had it to do over I’d find a different product . 615204

Would have given 5 stars but the hitch arrived with box in poor shape and had to touch up the paint where paint had been rubbed and scraped off during shipping. Looks like the hitch worn thru the box it was shipped in 593534



- 65062
by:
2018 Ram 1500

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. 592222

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. 588019

Etrailer has excellent service, I have the product itself 4 stars, without Etrailers great service, it would have been 3 stars. Product itself is good, but the square bolt locking washers were too big, so I had to grind them to get them to fit into the frame slot. This has been brought up before by other reviewers, no excuses for it, it could also set up around 2 inches higher next to the bumper for better ground clearance being this is 4x4 specific. Good and strong once it’s installed. 580972

The build quality, install instructions and paint on this front hitch receiver is very good. But I have to leave it off my stock height 4WD ram 1500 because it grounds too easily on curbs and gutter dips/driveways around town. Probably be OK if I had added a more few inches of suspension height. I bought it to accommodate a removable winch, but if it drags around town it's too low for off pavement... 578775

Receiver was pretty straight forward to install. Only one complaint, the only instructions in the box was for the Chevy Silverado and the hitch is for a 2018 Ram 1500. 577343

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. 570047

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. 569528

Hitch seems to be well built. The slotted blocks that you have to pass through the truck frame are too big and I had to cut 1/8 inch off each one. This is noted in previous reviews. If you want to improve your product do something about it! Also it's almost impossible to pull the the bolt leader through a 1/2 inch hole that you drill that's specified in the directions. The hole has to be at least 9/16 inch. Why don't you state that in the directions? 501131


Comments

Due to the availability of hardware, occasionally the non-critical dimensions of the hardware can vary slightly, like the block washer being a bit wider or the heads on the bolts a bit larger in diameter. Since these occurrences happen only occasionally, its not feasible for the manufacturer to change the instructions.

Hitch was delivered on time. Directions could use some improvement but by taking your time, you can figure it out. The bolt leader application had me a little concerned. My fear was I'd attached the bolt to the leader, put it in the frame and the bolt would fall out of the leader before it found the hole; however, I was pleasantly surprised that this gizmo works great for this application. Anyway, overall a good experience. Hitch is one year old and works fine. 369863

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. 343231

  • We have not had a chance to test fit either front-mount hitch that fits your 2017 Ram 1500 4WD - the Curt # 31374 or the Draw-Tite # 65062 - on a '17 model so there is not an exact distance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch available. However, the installation will have you trim a 7-1/2" W x 1" H space from the bottom of your truck's fascia and will protrude roughly 2" from the bottom of your bumper fascia. What you can do is use this to measure from the ground and stop 2" to 3"...

  • Will the Draw-Tite # 65062 Front Mounted Hitch Be Compatible With a Bull Bar?
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65062 is not able to be installed at the same time as you have your Bull Bar installed. Not only would the receiver tube interfere with the Bull Bar, but the mounting will be in the same location. Both will fit your vehicle, just not at the same time.

  • Ground Clearance of Front Mounted Receiver Installed on 2009 Ram 1500 2WD
  • According to Curt, their # 31374 front mounted receiver isn't recommended for 2WD models because of their lower ride height. My Curt representative also told me that there might be differences in the front suspension members that would interfere with the hitch. The Draw-Tite # 65062 which is indeed very similar to the Curt model will sit so that the underside of the receiver tube will sit about 1-3/4 inches below the bottom of the bottom of the bumper fascia. In Draw-Tite's opinion,...

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2018 Ram 1500 Require Trimming Fascia
  • All of the front hitches we offer for your 2018 Ram 1500 like the Draw Tite part # 65062 do require trimming of the front fascia. The trimming allows the hitch to sit a little bit higher so that you get slightly better ground clearance. Front hitches typically aren't classified but this hitch is a 2 inch size like a Class III normally is and has higher capacities too at 9,000 lb line pull and 500 lb vertical load.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 1500 Laramie
  • Yes, the Draw Tite Front Hitch part # 65062 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Ram 1500 4x4 Laramie and would work well for you. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. You may need to retain tow hooks on the front of your truck, so if that is important to you the Curt front hitch part # 31374 would be the better option as it has tow hook loops built into the hitch. If the tow hooks aren't an issue for you the Draw Tite would be my recommendation...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch That Fits 2018 Ram 1500 Tradesman
  • I checked with the manufacturer and can confirm for you that the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65062 will fit your 2018 Ram 1500 Tradesman 2WD as this front-mounted hitch does fit all models of '18 Ram 1500. In terms of the installation it is likely that you will need to enlarge the holes in order to get the 1/2 inch spacer blocks to fit in the frame, even though this is not specifically mentioned in the directions. If you go to about the 1:50 mark of the linked installation...

  • Is it Possible to Install a Bull Bar and Front Hitch on a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Most likely it wouldn't work since it looks like the Westin Bull Bar part # 32-1690 and the Draw Tite Front Hitch part # 65062 that are both confirmed to fit your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 will use the same point on your frame to install. It could be possible to use longer installation hardware and secure both the hitch and the bull bar through the same mounting holes, but since that hasn't been tested I cannot safely recommend that.

  • Curt Hitch or Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 1500
  • The install of the Curt Hitch # 31374 and the Draw Tite hitch part # 65062 on your 2015 Ram 1500 are going to be so similar that you really wouldn't gain much in terms of fascia trimming/modification if you went with one or the other. The Curt Hitch # 31374 is confirmed to fit your 2015 Ram 1500 4x4. It will require the removal of the factory tow hooks, but this hitch has loops on either side of the hitch opening that could be used as tow hooks which the Draw Tite does not so I would...

  • Best Ball Mount with 8 to 10 Inch Rise for Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Ram 1500
  • The ball mounts that we carry that have enough rise do not have enough clearance to clear the front bumper on your 2014 Ram 1500. But I do have a possible solution for you. You could use Curt ball mount # D-28 which will provide 4 inches of rise. Then use Curt high rise ball # C40034 which will provide another 2 inches of rise for a total of 6 inches. This is a 2 inch ball. For the purposes of slow maneuvers in the driveway a 2 inch ball can be used with a 2-5/16 inch coupler. You would...
