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

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

My hitch came in on time, the box was in good shape and easy to install. I used a floor jack to hold it in place. One tip I have I did not remove the skid plate to cut the 4'' access hole. If you are careful you can do this with the skid plate bolted on the truck and save time. Good luck. 615378

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Front Hitch
Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Will Front Mounted Receiver Hitch on 2013 Toyota Tundra Need to Be Removed to Change Oil
  • Neither the Draw-Tite # 65080 nor the Curt # 31198 would in themselves prevent you from changing the oil in your truck. What they will do is prevent you from removing the skid shield, which will block access to the oil filter. You can remove the skid shield entirely and leave it off permanently, or you can cut a 4-5 inch diameter access hole through the skid shield in the area directly under the oil filter. Because the hitch attachment hardware is meant as a one-time use item, we don't...

  • Comparing Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65080 is my recommendation for you based on cost and features. The installation of this hitch is nearly identical to the Curt # 31198. The Draw-Tite has a measurement of 7-1/2 inches from the crossbar to the end of the receiver tube. The Curt receiver has a measurement of 4-5/8 inches from the crossbar to the end of the receiver tube. The weight ratings of the hitches are identical, so the 2-7/8 inch difference in...

  • Does Skid Shield have to be Removed for a Front Hitch on a 2018 Toyota Tundra
  • On the Curt front mount receiver # 31198 there is a note stating that the skid shield will either have to be removed or you can trim it and reinstall in on your 2018 Toyota Tundra. For the Draw-Tite receiver # 65080 we have a note stating that the skid shield must be removed but nothing about being able to reinstall it. Some customers have noted that they had to make or enlarge a hole on a bottom panel in order to be able to change the oil. You may also consider using the Bike Bunk,...

  • Comparing Curt and Draw Tite Front Hitches for 2018 Toyota Tundra
  • For your 2018 Toyota Tundra we have the Curt front hitch part # 31198 and the Draw Tite part # 65080 both as a confirmed fit and both really good options. Both install the exact same and have same capacities, but I like the Curt better as it's made in the USA and the Draw Tite is not. I attached a picture that shows the hitch installed for you to check out as well.

  • Front-Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2017 Toyota Tundra 4X4
  • We can offer you a choice of two 2-inch front-mounted hitches for your 2017 Toyota Tundra. You can see both the Curt and Draw-Tite options by clicking on the link provided. Both Curt hitch # 31198 and Draw-Tite hitch # 65080 share 500-lb vertical load and 9000-lb line pull ratings. Both are no-drill installations using included hardware. The Curt has the advantage on price so I suggest this one over the Draw-Tite. Installation instructions are linked for you. If you plan to use a...

  • Does Skid Plate of 2016 Toyota Tundra Need to be Modified to Install Front Hitch
  • There is a 4 inch diameter hole that needs to be cut in the skid shield of your 2016 Toyota Tundra to be able to install the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65080 that you referenced. I attached a diagram that shows where it will be.

  • Comparison of Curt and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receviers for 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • We have two front mount hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2008 Toyota Tundra. The Curt 31198 and the Draw-Tite # 65080. They do have identical specs since they both have a 9,000 pound line pull and 500 pound vertical load. Both have a 2 inch recevier opening. Both bolt to your Tundra's frame and do not require any drilling. The largest difference is going to be the appearance once either is installed. The receiver tube of the Draw-Tite protrudes further forward than the Curt...

  • Can Bike Rack be Used on Front Mount Hitch of 2019 Toyota Tundra
  • You can use a bike rack in the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65080 although this is a 2" hitch so you would not be able to use a bike rack with 1-1/4" shank; you would need a bike rack for a 2" hitch like the Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 or Yakima HoldUp # Y02443. It is possible that using any bike rack will interfere with sensors that are located on the front grille of your '19 Tundra. We have not tested this specifically but it would make sense this would be the case.

  • Size Of Front Hitch Receiver Opening For 2011 Toyota Tundra
  • The front hitch that is confirmed as a fit for your 2011 Toyota Tundra is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65080. This hitch does have a 2 inch receiver opening and is not available in a 3 inch version. This hitch has an easy bolt-on installation and requires no welding or drilling. If you have the front skid plate on your Tundra, it may have to be removed to install this hitch. Typically, the shanks of any bike carriers we offer fit either 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch....

  • Can The Front Mount Trailer Hitch for 2010 Toyota Tundra be Used and Retain the Factory Tow Loops
  • Yes, when installing the Draw-Tite Front Hitch, # 65080, on the 2010 Toyota Tundra you will reinstall the front tow loops after raising the hitch into position. This will sandwich the hitch between the tow loops and the vehicle frame. I have linked the installation instructions for you to review. You may also be interested in the HighRock 4x4 Hitch Mounted Tow Strap Loop, # B4292201.

  • Recommended Front Hitch for 2018 Toyota Tundra
  • The Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31198 and the Draw-Tite # 65080 for your 2018 Toyota Tundra are indeed just about identical in terms of their capacities and where they will mount on the truck. One thing that does differentiate the two models, and the reason I recommend the Curt, is the fact that the Curt # 31198 is made right here in the USA while the Draw-Tite hitch is made overseas. The Curt hitches are also known for their unique powder coat application which ensures a rust free hitch...

  • Do I Lose The Tow Hooks When Installing Draw Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65080 on a 2012 Toyota Tundra
  • Good news! You will not have to sacrifice your tow hooks on your 2012 Toyota Tundra when installing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65080. The installation instructions are attached, and the very first step is to remove the hooks, but, keep them to reinstall later. Just a side note is that if your Tundra has a front skid shield it will need to be removed so you will have access to your engine oil filter.

  • Skid Plate Removal and Ground Clearance w/Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installed on 2007 Toyota Tundra
  • You do not have to remove the skid plate on your 2007 Toyota Tundra to install Curt front mount receiver # 31198 but you can if you wanted to. You should be able to loosen the skid plate enough to move the skid plate out of the way enough without having to remove the entire hitch. I have linked the installation instructions for you to view. The receiver will be just below the lowest trim piece on the front bottom of the vehicle to give you an idea of ground clearance. I included a picture...

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch for 2015 Toyota Tundra
  • The two front mount hitches available that are confirmed to fit your 2015 Toyota Tundra, the Draw-Tite # 65080 and the Curt # 31198, are extremely similar to each other and differ only in their slight design variation. Both hitches will provide a 2 inch receiver opening with a 500 vertical load maximum and 9,000 pound line pull capacity. The only real difference between the two models is that the Draw-Tite # 65080 has a receiver tube that protrudes a bit further forward than the Curt....

  • Front Mounted Trailer Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier for 2015 Toyota Tundra
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65080 that fits your 2016 Toyota Tundra has a vertical load limit (the front mount hitch version of tongue weight) of 500 lbs; you can use this hitch and tow your trailer at the same time so long as your weights stay within their respective capacities. To haul your bike I recommend checking out the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. The carrier weighs 53 lbs and has a 400 lb capacity; your bike will fit so long as it has...

Those widths are 12-, 32- and 52-inches as shown in the linked photo. These various fits are made possible by choosing how the angled legs are installed; either both inward, one inward or both outward. Please refer to the linked photo. If you confirm you have...

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver and Oil Changes for a 2012 Toyota Tundra
  • Customers have stated that in order to change the oil on a 2012 Toyota Tundra with front mount hitch # 31198 installed they have had to either leave off the skid plate or modify it to avoid having to take it and the hitch off every time the oil needs to be changed. The other front receiver option that fits your truck, # 65080, requires removal of the skid plate so it would not be an issue unless you wanted to keep the ski plate..

  • Will Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65080 Fit a 2008 Toyota Tundra TRD with Off Road Package
  • The Draw-Tite front mount hitch # 65080 is listed as fitting all styles of the 2008 Toyota Tundra. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch has a 500 pound vertical load capacity but you need to determine the capacity of the front axle to know if you can add a carrier and bike to the the front of the truck. Front mount hitches are made more for winching applications where there is not as much vertical load.

  • How Does a Bolt Leader/Fishwire Work when Installing a Front Mount Receiver on a 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • I have included links to a video that, in part, shows how to fishwire hardware when installing a hitch and to our help article with installation tips. Basically, you will run the fishwire through the hole that you will be using with the spring-looking end going in first. Pull it out through another access hole. Slide the block spacer on first. Thread the hardware to the spring end and then pull the other end of the fishwire back through the first hole so that the threaded part of the...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Toyota Tundra SR5 with Off Road Package
  • I checked with Draw-Tite and front mount hitch # 65080 is listed as a fit for all models of the 2014 Toyota Tundra. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Prior to installing the hitch and plow, make sure to check the front axle weight rating to make sure it can be used with a plow. The hitch itself is rated for 500 pounds vertical load and a maximum of 9,000 pounds straight line pull (if using a winch).
