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. Technical Support

At 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. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

I got the wrong receiver. It does not fit my 2000 chevy 2500. I need to return this one. Looked up install of front hitch on [online] , this one does not look close to the one they installed without doing any modifications.

Send me the info on how to return this one.
Thank you

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. The front mounted hitch that would be a fit for your 2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 LD would be part # 65028
Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2"
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/29/2022


Game Changer! Especially useful for maneuvering trailers around tight driveway and garage areas. Much safer maneuvering trailers driving forward instead of reverse when ground is icy.


The Draw-Tite hitch receiver appears to be well made and true. Installation was not a problem, only took longer than time estimate due to several dull drill bits for drilling of the two holes. Hopefully will get to use it this weekend.

And as always a big thanks to the etrailer crew for their assistance in helping me complete this project.


The receiver was very easy to install and fit like a glove. I have installed a 12000 # winch for when I go hunting. Thank You , Gwendolyn for your help you were great to work with.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe

Great product. Installed in 45 minutes. Very easy. Love it


Works great!


The hitch came and when we tried to math it up with the bolts as described in your listing it seems only the front two match up with the toe bolts, there is no rear holes that line up, cant drill into the metal frame either so this will not work as advertised

Thank you for your reply. It sounds like you have a flexed hitch receiver which is fixable. Here is a help article about it:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/16/2021


Shipped on time. Fit good. Easy Install.
my half ton chevy it is kind of close to the ground , I had to get a 8" drop hitch and flip it over and mount the ball on that. That is not the receiver hitches fault.
It works great for moving stuff around my shop / property. front hitch makes "backing" trailers in to a tight spot simple.

Excellent , no problems 1 year later.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado

It probably took less than an hour to mount including drilling the two holes in the rear. I’m using it to mount my Home Plow. Works like a champ.

2002 GMC Sierra

Very easy to insall and you can't hardly see it sticking out the front of my truck.

2005 GMC Yukon XL

Solid well built, relatively easy to install. I used a floor jack and everything lined up as advertised. The nuts on the long piece of metal are very helpful. Only negative is how low the hitch is, at least 4-6 inched lower than the rear factory hitch. I was unable to use it because my trailer's 5th wheel would not go down low enough to fold up after connecting the hitch. Will need to get an offset step hitch that hopefully has enough length to extend beyond the bumper so I can connect


Great product installed easy must say that you do need a 1/2 drill bit and a good drill for the chassis to be drilled out and it helps if you have car ramps and good drill let's not forget the safety glasses.installed in 15 minutes thanks again also the cheapest on the web...recommend to all



2004 Chevrolet Suburban

Super fast shipping and great price when others took my order only to cancel days later.


a friend mounted the hitch- great fit!

hatteras rod rack slides right in gracefully.

bought a lock/hitchpin an now we're ready to roll.

great product!


this item is a live saver for me. I have a pull behind trailer and I needed some way to haul my scooter, the front hitch was the perfect answer. The service at etrailer is exceptional. Very professional. I would highly recommend this company for their service and their products. 5 star all along the way.

2004 GMC Yukon

This hitch looks as good as I thought it would, and in my opinion it was a good price. Haven't installed it yet but held it up on vehicle and it will be as easy to install as your add said. However it came in an etrailer box and out of the draw- tite box and the powder coating was chipped off in several places, not what I thought a new product should look like. I'll have to get me some paint and do some touch up before I install it.

2002 Chevrolet Suburban

Installed in about 30 minutes. Would have been about 15 minutes but the holes for the hook bolts didn't originally line up but were just slightly off. Looked at modifying the holes and noticed the hitch frame was slight bent inward. hit it with a hammer to straighten metal and then fit perfect. Didn't have to make any other adjustments to vehicle or anything. Was perfect fit.


Attached are some pics of the hitch installed & its planned use.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado

Fits perfectly on my Z71 with a 30 minute install with no helpers. I was worried about ground clearance but it fits snugly under the bumper trim and sits higher than the guard panels that are directly behind the hitch. The front mounted hitch option was suggested by 2 people when confronted with stowing a boat through a limited clearance gate in tight spaces.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado

I received the wrong hitch because I thought I had a HD but didn't. They exchanged it quickly and cheerfully even though it was my fault. The installation was relatively easy with no special tools or hoist. One tip: For the two holes I had to drill in the frame, a small scissors jack between the drill and the ground made the job a piece of cake


Good product. I recommend it.
1. fits
like a glove.
2. clears (is below) valence. No modification needed.
3. make sure the holes drilled in frame are accurate.

2003 GMC Yukon XL

Received on time!!! Installed in less than one hour. Works great!!!

1999 Chevrolet Silverado

Direct fit to my 1999 Chevy Silverado. Only required two holes to be drilled, which was easy enough. No trimming of the fascia/molding or other parts required. Comes with appropriate high grade bolts. Very pleased with finish and fit- looks like OEM- nothing about it says "add-on".


The hitch is fine the ground clearance is my issue. On a stock 1/2 truck their is a limited amount of front clearance. Installing the hitch reduced the clearance by 3-1/2 inches causing it to strike the roadway
