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.

2018 Ram 2500

This item showed up extremely poorly packaged with two holes in the box and paint missing where my hitch came out of the box and was beat up while being shipped.

I am sorry to hear that! I think we can do better, too. In the meantime, I sent a message to a customer service team lead to reach out to you about this.


Excellent fit and easy to install a very clean look as well



Great We put a cargo rack on the front of the truck to carry coolers and other outdoor equipment. I did a test run first to make sure the coolers were not going to block too much when getting to the radiator . 98° day pulling 12,000 pound TT there was a 2° rise in engine temperature when the coolers are on the cargo rack We tried several test, including hills This was easy to install and handy


Trailer has great communications with customers.
Fast shipping. And tech support if needed.

2014 Ram 3500

I gave this four stars. I would have given it five stars but wasn't happy with the nuts that were supplied. My one hour job turned into a 3 hour job. After tourqing the last bolt the threads stripped out. I couldn't tighten it and couldn't unscrew it. I ended up drilling the head of the bolt till I was able to brake it off with a large punch. Thank god the head of the bolt was accessible. I ended up installing all 7/16 grade 8 bolts with lock nuts. Felt much better after the upgraded bolts and nuts. I love the hitch. It looks like it belongs there. So all in all I'd give the hitch a 5 and the fasteners nuts a 1.

The front hitch is working great! I have a Ram 3500 and pull a 43 foot fifth wheel when we travel. The hitch is for a 250 GTS Vespa we take with us. People stop and ask about the set up all the time. We love it!

2017 Dodge Ram Pickup

I had read reviews about this product arriving in a card box box just floppong around getting damaged. That was the furthest thing from the case for me. It was very well packed in a heavy box with internal pieces to hold it in place. It arrived in perfect condition.

I chose to replace the silver hardware with black 10.9 rated M10 60mm FINE THREAD nuts and bolts. I used the included conical washers.

The install was straight forward on my 2017 Ram 2500 Cummins. It was a bit tricky to get to the back bolts, but it was doable. It took me about 45 minutes.

Although I haven't tried hooking up to the receiver yet, I'm extremely happy with the packaging, fit, quality and appearance of this product and with the quick shipping and personalized service of etrailer.


Jeff H.


Thanks. I’ve loved it and it’s still going strong!


Excellent design - form meets function! It looks OEM, but provides front options for bike rack or winch while still allowing use of the factory tow hooks. Installation went exactly as directed. I would recommend this hitch for anyone looking to increase versatility without giving up clearance.

Curt G.


The product has greatly increased my front end versatility and load hauling capabilities. I have received several complements on how smartly it fits into the front bumper. NOTE: using electrical tape to secure each nut to a box end wrench while reaching the difficult inner bumper areas was a huge helping tip during the install. Thanks again for the great experience, I would highly recommend etrailer for quality of product and service!


Easy to install (with an assortment of sockets, extensions and wrenches). Looks great, barely protrudes beyond the bumper and the tow hooks are even more useable now! Also, the product was eligible for free shipping, 7-10 day, and etrailer upgraded it to 3-5 day for free! One small feature about etrailer that is nice, is that when they send you an email it is from a person, not an auto-mailer!



just one of the many reasons that they will always have my business! Etrailer, you guys really are top notch!

Matt A.


I have used the front hitch many times. Still a great product!

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

Love the hitch. Installed on s 2016 ram 3500 diesel. easy to install except for the upper inner bolts. Kind of a tight place. I did upgrade the bolts to a grade 8 as the ones included didn't seem heavy enough.



Still love the system. It is heavy and was troublesome getting it in and out of the truck but since getting a hoist that problem has been solved


Draw-Tite is the only way to go. A grate clean look, puts the winch right where it needs to be. Took Steve's W advice & took the grill out & maid it easier to install. Taking tow hooks off was the easy part, Reinstalling A bit tough. What I did to make it easier was to tac weld washers to nuts & used A 3/8 x 17mm deep sock & braker bar to hold in place & screw in from front side.

Lee B.


As you see in my photo the hitch fit grate on my 2010 dodge 2500. Steel retain the factory tow hooks. Like the way the winch pulls off the front of the trucks fram.

2015 Ram 2500

Love the hitch, used it to mount winch to the front of my truck. Shipping was fast, only issue is box was damaged in shipping and the hitch was protruding out of the box. So there were some pretty good scuffs on one end of the hitch. You can't see them when installed, but the packaging could have been done better to prevent this.


Easy to install and only mounts one way. I figured a couple of hours to do the install, but It took an hour longer due to my Ram having a couple of mounting bolts that were difficult to access. After getting a little help with a second pair of hands, the install went pretty fast. I really use this for my winch, but have found that it’s perfect for receiver type bike racks as well as a mount for a crossbar style rack above and over the hood/cab of my truck to carry 2 kayaks while towing my fifth wheel. It also allows for me to use a ball mount to steer a trailer into tight spots rather than push it blindly backwards. A great use of product I think.

2010 Dodge Ram Pickup

The GOOD: Shipped fast. Which was appreciated since I needed it fast, so when we returned from a recent trip, I could experiment with "pushing" the 28' trailer into storage instead of backing it in.
The BAD: Look at the pics and you decide. Draw Tite; are you familiar with the concept of QA ?
INSTALL: I put this unit on my '10 Ram 2500 by myself. An extra pair of hands would have been nice but... Remove your grill, takes about 3 min., see You Tube. This will give you great access and visibility.
Ripping stuff apart is EASY! However, I (58 yrs. old/mech inclined) was able/had to put this ALL back together alone. How? Of the eight bolts involved, I think just three are the most difficult (location). The trick... USE A MAGNET MOUNTED ON A TELESCOPIC HANDLE, stick it through the front of the truck, stick the bottom of the bolt to the magnet, and gently pull it up and through the bolt hole (the threaded part of the bolt should now be sticking out the FRONT of the truck). BEFORE you started this process, you would have the entire rig loosely hanging by a couple bolts pushed in from the FRONT of the truck. In the end, all nuts will be in FRONT of the truck; providing ease of access for torquing.
HARDWARE; I was concerned the hardware was gonna be crap, so before closely looking at the bolts provided, I purchased my own "graded" stuff.
Turns out the bolts are graded but longer than needed;the nuts were still suspect. So I will use nuts I bought to be sure come "torque time".
Considering the way (direction) I decided to install the bolts and that the ones provided are longer than necessary; I was left with a lot of bolt thread sticking out.
So, I cut the heads off the class 10.9 M10-1.5x50mm bolts I bought, tapped out the OEM tow hook nuts, and put together what you see in the pic to dress up the front hitch. Hope this was a help.


The unit seems to be well made, haven't had to use it yet. I will be using it for a winch and bike rack. The packaging does not protect the Hitch during transportation and paint was damaged exposing it to possible future rust issues. The bolts that were provided are smaller than the factory bolts and had to be replaced to match the factory bolts. I had to drill the bottom holes to fit the appropriate bolts. Too soon to give anything other an average rating, seems well built.


Ordered Draw-Tite, 2016 ram 2500 front hitch receiver. Read and watched all install info I could prior to purchase. Received from etrailer in just a few days -really fast- free shipping also!
Arrived as pictured well packaged, with smaller longer bolts then stock ones removed. Bought 7/16 hi grade bolts(beefier) with flat/lock washers. Had all bolts on and torqued, but checking them after, bolt, and nut on backside turned. Also, nut had to be held with wrench when tightening. Not good. Re examined furnished bolts washers. The washers are concaved with grooves for holding fast. Undid all I had done, installed furnished bolts/washers. Checked after torque. Tight with NO turning of bolt or nut. Impressed. I held receiver in place with a piece of 2" stock stuck in it, the outside end i put into my trailer hitch, strapped it to my motorcycle jack and wiggled new receiver into place. Held it well until bolts could be inserted. One man install is tough. Before receiver is placed bolts on tow hooks could be accessed from front. After install, no. All from below. Tape on back of wrench to hold nut in place works, I also taped box/open end wrench to a long -paint stick- to access inside of bolts. Slow, patience helps, but it worked. Holding nut while tightening front bolt was tough, but once the supplied washers took a bite, things went well. Could torque from front without holding -hard to get to nut- inside bumper. Space between top/bottom of receiver and bumper is close, however, receiver mounted and torque, is rock solid. No movement found yet, loaded with weight.
I ordered a few other parts for another job. Order was a little messed up, which was promptly handled by ADAM, a great rep, and I also talked with Jean, when Adam was unavailable. She was great also..In the past, wait time on phone was 20 min or more. Awful. However this purchase I experienced none of that. Phone wait times were minimal. I was happy. With messed up order, things were handled smooth, and quick. No hassles what so ever. In closing, Passed order included a set of air-bags with stainless air lines. One line leaked no matter how I tried to stop it. Called etrailer folks, promptly handled situation, and problem was corrected. A breath of fresh air today amongst so many nasty companies out there. Many thanks to Adam again for his help and personal attention. etrailer has proven to me, to be a great reputable company, that go the extra mile to satisfy me, a customer.
If I could download pictures of install, ya'll would appreciate the southern ingenuity that went into the challenging one man install of front hitch mount. I even impressed myself,

2015 Ram 3500

Fit as described and exactly what I was wanting to accomplish. Even with all of the extra mounting for my BOSS V Plow the install was straight forward. As seen in the pictures, we chose to fish the inner bolts on both side from the backside to ease installation. Install time: 1 man-1 hour, 2 man-45 mins.

Charles M.


Awesome is all I can say!!! I have since mounted a 12k winch to the front hitch. I wired it universal to the rear so I can still use it when my plow is on. Sorry no pictures.

2013 Dodge Ram Pickup

The hitch is well made but knocking a star off for installation. I had my sons help. Removing the tow hooks is easy, but putting the hitch and bolts back in was not as east. I read the comments and got some grade 8 M12 1.75 bolts. For the install, six of the bolts lined up but for one on each side the hitch blocked a portion of the bolt hole. I used a drill to widen it just a bit, which worked on one side but not the other. I ended up using the provided bolt for the last hole. The provided bolts are just smaller in diameter than the stock bolts which raises the risk that the hitch can slide around if it has too heavy of a load. I spent about 3 hours total mostly trying to get the inside bolts and nuts on, and addressing the slightly misaligned hole. Otherwise, looks great and it’s perfect to hold my portable Superwinch. I have a 2013 Cummins RAM 2500.

2016 Ram 2500

Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" - The front mount hitch fit perfect and was installed easily. I had a need for a front 2" receiver for an additional winch location.

Thanks for the speedy delivery of the product!

2017 Ram 2500

Worked great for my "4 Boys FL70" over-cab boat loader installation.
Pros: Fits nicely, has the load capacity I needed, and sits much higher that the under bumper units.
Cons: The bolts are poor quality. One stripped while I was tightening it. Also the bolt diameter is a bit smaller than the OEM bolts. Will be upgrading mine soon.

Overall I am pleased with the unit and would recommend to others who don,t need to add

2013 Ram 3500

Love it, and it looks great. It took about an hour to install with my neighbors help. I spray painted the bolts black after install so they don't show. I could not be happier. I ordered on Tuesday, delivered on Thursday and installed Friday morning. Thanks etrailer.

Don C.


Works great, sand is out of the way, love it.


I get a lot of questions on how I’m using the front hitch. I pull a 5th wheel so there is no other way to haul my scooters. The front hitch worked perfect for what I wanted to do. The picture included is the hitch installed with scooters on rack.


Hi as always your deliveries are on time and the product is always high-quality, have place well over a dozen orders from you all and everything always perfect

Robert D.


Front receiver, hitches. I have actually purchased two under my name, I own and run a business, so I also have my project managers ordering from etrailer. we have three of the front receiver, hitches, and all are heavy duty and well-made. we use them for front, winches, and a product called readi plow which mounts right on the receiver hitch. I have also purchased many of your 20,000 pound receiver hitches for the rear and 20,000 pound ball mounts all extremely heavy duty well built and I’ve use them for well over four years now.

2018 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed on 2018 Ram 2500 Laramie 4x4. Fit was good. Used the supplied 10mm bolts and bellville washers to get more vertical wiggle room. Total vertical clearance in the receiver area is only 3/8". OEM bolts coming off needed 18mm tools. Tow hook removal easy. Kit bolts use 17mm(11/16). Pictured tools very useful. 14" hemostat for placing washers and nuts on inboard bolts can be had at HF Tools for $6. Getting tool on some nuts to tighten is challenging. Time single handed was 1-1/2 hrs.


Product was even easier to install then I thought. Great fit.
Great communication and even faster delivery!
It makes for a great asset to utilize my winch & move trailers with ease not to mention it allows for the OEM anchors to stay in place for my truck.
Thanks for a great product!




2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great product. Installed on 2012 ram 2500 megacab 6.7. Installed this in tandem with Ranch Hand Legend grille guard. Works perfect. When installing I used a breaker bar on the inner tow hook nuts. This allows you a straight shot to the nuts. Used impact on outer bolts. I also used a chain fall mounted to ceiling in garage to hold hitch in place while bolting up. Install time Was 45 minutes . If I had help it would be a 20 minute job.

Dodge Ram Pickup

I’m very pleased with the quality and installation of the Drawtite front receiver for our RAM. As others noted, the hitch is hefty and installing it by yourself not ideal. However, I did so with no issues or heavy lifting. I made a simple tool utilizing a floor jack and some studs (one ripped in half to fit in the reciever) that worked great and easily glided and held the hitch in position. I enclosed a picture. As a bonus, this receiver has the J pin hole for anti-rattle of your accessories. The J pin has worked great on our Jeep with the Drawtite hitch. Also, it isn’t mentioned but if your RAM did not come with the factory hooks (the directions assume you have the hooks) you will most likely not have the additional braces behind your bumper to handle the load this front hitch will require. Be sure you have the hook braces in addition to the standard braces.
