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.

Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" - 65070

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (83 Customer Reviews)

Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your vehicle with this fully welded, corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.


What a great product. As with anything that I order I always look at the welds and Howard has put together to make sure there is nothing obviously wrong. This product was built incredibly well! I did get all the bolts out ahead of time and all the hardware was there. Putting this product on was very easy I timed it and it only took 45 minutes with hand tools.I like the fact that on the draw tite you can continue to use your front skid plate. Now that I have Brad enough about the product and installation let’s talk about the customer service. The customer service was as good or better than the product. I talked to Kyle and within 10 minutes I had my product on order. He also told me that they guaranteed the best price. I did find one while I was at work yesterday for $20 cheaper but for the quality of the customer service I would feel embarrassed calling for $20 back for how they treated me. Definitely get one of these if you have a Tacoma. And did I mention that it arrived at the house less than 48 hours after I ordered it!

Toyota Tacoma

Easy installation! Only took me an hour. Everything went together as it should, except for on my truck (2009 Tacoma), there were no holes drilled for the rearward straps. So, I mounted it up, and drilled the holes, and everything else went fine.


So far so great! It’s been a year now and I use it for a front snow plow , bike racks and even put my trailer ball on it so I can push my boat and trailer into my garage. Finish is excellent and no signs of rust yet!

2017 Toyota Tacoma

Product was as advertised, Excellent. It was delivered without all the proper hardware. I was missing 4 lock washers and 10 nuts, luckily I have a good store close. I have a 2017 Toyota Tacoma. Install of the drivers side bracket was easy. Passenger side bracket rear bolt was tricky due to brake lines but a little bend did the trick. Hole alignment was spot on.......don't tighten anything until fully mounted.....and then do it in the order in which the directions state. It did take me longer then anticipated but it was well worth the wait, I couldn't be happier!!!!!!!! Now to make adjustments to the surf fishing rack.


Product fit and finish were remarkably good. Mounting was a breeze with zero issues. Worked well in conjunction with my matching rear receiver. Easily transported my 16ft kayak from coast to coast. Would highly recommend this product to anymore looking for a front mount receiver.

Great. The finish is as fresh looking as the day it was installed and Ive driven the truck clear across the country and back.

Just arrived today and couldn’t wait to install it on my 2007 Tacoma. Within the hour of the UPS man handing me the box I was grabbing tools and loosening the nuts on the skid plate shroud (4 12mm bolts) and the “strap box” thing held on by a 17mm bolt and I’m ready to install. The two mounting plates went on easily, next the middle hitch and the lower bolts that secure to where the “strap box” once was and That was it!! Any knuckle dragger could install this hitch with ease. I bought this hitch so I could haul my motorcycle in front while pulling my trailer. Love it!!

2021 Toyota Tacoma

Pretty solid build quality, and everything fitted together well. The instructions were clear enough, but I found an eTrailer video on YouTube which helped a lot. I think the installation time estimate is a bit optimistic. With the front wheels on my 2021 Tacoma TRD Sport up on ramps, I took around 2 hours to finish the job. If I had to do it again, with a helper, and I had a lift like in the video, I'd guess an hour would be reasonable.

2005 Toyota Tacoma

The box arrived with a few holes where the end brackets of the hitch broke through due to the handling of the shipper. The exposed edges of the hitch had the paint scraped off in some areas, but was not an issue for me. The mounting hardware was securely attached to the hitch in a sealed bag. All mouunting hardware was included.
Installing the hitch on a 2005 Tacoma Access Cab was straightforward using the provided instructions. Before ordering the Drawtite Hitch, I studied the Curt instructions and it mentioned that for my Tacoma, I would have to drill two 1/2" holes to mount the side straps. I drilled the holes after mounting the hitch to the frame.
I was able to install the hitch myself usihg a motorcycle jack to hold the hitch in place while I fastened it to the frame.
Installation took about 3 hours. About half of the time was spent carefully drilling the two holes for the side straps.
The bottom of the receiver is about 7" from the ground. The approach to my driveway is quite steep but the bottom of the receiver clears it easily.


This receiver mount arrived as expected, and I had it installed by a pair of experienced mechanics, took about half an hour. Everything fit as needed and will be available to move my trailers for the life of my truck. No exposed welds were found and the paint coating is very thick. I am very satisfied and would recommend the product and etrailer.


Works great. Makes it a breeze putting it in storage or moving it period. I rigged up a 30 ft section of harness for trailer brakes and can park it up a hill safely as well. Get a lotta looks and comments.


Adds great utility to my truck. Bike rack up front, and load the bed plus pull my trailers.


This hitch is the perfect fit for my Toyota. Very easy to install. I use it to attach a snow plow. works great.

2010 Toyota Tacoma

Overall everything went well. The box arrived with a few holes in it, but the hitch and all bolts were there and just a couple of minor scratches. Installation was pretty much straight forward, a little more difficult on the ground as opposed to doing it from a lift but that is generally accepted by do it yourselfers. Tool list is more extensive if you torque the bolts properly, for instance you will need a crows foot that fits your torque wrench as you can’t get a socket on a couple of the bolts. I’m a tool crazy person so that is no problem for me! I preferred the Draw-tire brand as I could put the rock and gravel Shield back on my 2010 Toyota Tacoma. Looks good fits great and did a great job of delivering the product at a good price. Thanks!


Works great - I've abused this thing for a year and its still doing fine!

This thing was a life saver when I had to launch the jet ski off of the front bumper last year when the water was low.

2016 Toyota Tacoma

The hitch is nice and looks good. For you "Real Off roaders" look at one of the $500 versions that put it above the bumper. It dose affect your approach angle. but I wanted it to mount a cooler on the front when towing our camper. Going to work out fine. Like many others have said it was missing hardware. 10 bolts and 4 lock washers to be exact. The bag was intact with no rips. Guess it's my own fault but I didn't realize it till I was most of the way done with installation. Called and they got new parts on the way but said that it would be 5 to 7 days. One trip to Lowe's and got it installed 30 minutes later. $3.50 to get it installed that day was worth it. Fast delivery to. And they were on it to make sure all was good. Thank you just hire some one who can count to put hardware together. Lol

2016 Toyota Tacoma

This was fairly simple to install, once I figured out what in the world I was doing. The instructions are great, if you already know the names of the parts they're referring to. I'm not mechanically inclined and it took me approx 2 hrs to install. Thankfully I still have a 75ftlb torque wrench.
My only beef is that for a 2016 Tacoma (TRD Sport), the lower air dam needs remove for installation, and it doesn't get reinstalled.
Other than that, installation's a breeze, and this sucker is heavy duty. If I ever need any parts like this, or anything related to automotive or trailer stuff, I'm coming to this website FIRST.

2018 Toyota Tacoma

The hitch fits perfectly for my 2018 Tacoma. Had to trim some stuff as stated in directions.
The problem I had was I didn’t check hardware and make sure it was all there before taking apart my truck.
So I ended up buying nuts and lock washers at the local Home Depot.
Worked like a charm and from there out everything went smoothly
It did take longer then 35 minuets but I was installing it on the ground so it took about 2 hrs with a friend.
Would recommend this to anyone looking to put a hitch on.

2016 Toyota Tacoma

This is a wonderful product and has made trailer positioning a snap. I can now maneuver my boat / utility trailer up a very narrow drive without going into the yard. The only downside was the unit did not come with all the hardware to install. etrailer sent me the missing hardware very quickly. Be prepared to make cuts to the air dam if so equipped. A torque wrench is required to install along with socket and open end wrenches.


The part was delivered promptly and allowed me to finish my trip on time.

2015 Toyota Tacoma

Excellent hitch. Looks great on my truck. Easy to install. Fits perfect. Great price.
Needed to be able to have more maneuverability in getting my boat into my backyard. This front hitch does the trick.


Easy to install and so far been great.
price on online.

2021 Toyota Tacoma

Had to touch up the paint on a dozen or so spots that were chipped down to bare metal. Bolt Torque spec will crush your frame. It's ok on the other bolts. Provided frame plates are not sturdy enough to prevent bending the frame. Directions didn't say the frame is supposed to crush. Maybe Toyota lightened up on the 2021 Tacoma frame steel. Otherwise the receiver is very good.


Looks and works great. Needed a front hitch to put my bike rack on when towing my pop-up and it works perfect.

2010 Toyota Tacoma

I purchased the front mount receiver hitch in order to use an equipment carrier on the front of my 2010 Toyota Tacoma. I needed to keep access to the bed of my truck for unloading materials into my top dresser. This hitch is perfect! It is plenty strong to handle the job says 900 lb tongue weight, but I only need about 400 lb with carrier and equipment. While the install looked pretty easy, I did have a local mechanic do it for me since he had a lift which makes it much easier. Even never having installed a front hitch before, it only took the mechanic no more than 1 hour to install after watching the wonderful 6 minute install video. The price was great and quality of the product including all install information was great! Only drawback was that, as many others have stated, not all of the hardware was included. I was missing about 8 lock washers, 6 nuts, and 2 of the notched flat washers were too small a diameter. Local hardware store had everything I need and it only cost an extra $6. Overall, great product and value! Highly recommend this 5-star rated product! Thanks,!

2005 Toyota Tacoma

Installation on 2005 Tacoma when well with no issues. Box was missing a few parts (nuts & washers) due to a damaged box but etrailer took care of that.
