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.

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.


Item fits perfectly on a 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 ltd. 4 stars because it had missing paint in some sections. A little bit hard to install at home with just jacks. Like 3 hrs. In a shop lifter should be no more than 1 hr.


I use the front hitch for my fishing rod rack.Use a U shaped locking pin so there is no wobble. This receiver was not drilled for that type of pin, otherwise excellent install.


Perfect fit , easy install even with existing Brush guard . Fast delivery packaged well.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Product is great, instructions could be better. Needed a bigger diagram and a little more clarity on not to remove the second bolt on the driver side. Don’t do it!!!. Got it installed but wow Chevy didn’t leave much room to install this but I suppose I am just happy we got a front hitch for the 3.0 diesel! Yay!

2020 GMC Sierra 1500

Fit well, looks stout! Instructions need more information about bumper bracket that needs removed to make way for the rear bolts. Once removed it slipped right in place!


Excellent product. worked beautifully with my Warn winch. I used it to remove 19 dead arborvitae along a fence line in my back yard. The majority of them was 20ft. and taller. I was able to drive my truck in the back yard and hook the cable to them and pull them out. My GMC 1500 didn't come with a winch so this worked great with the Draw-Tite front mount hitch receiver. Highly recommend it.


Hitch arrived quickly and shipping packaging kept hitch protected. Had a local highly regarded hitch / welding shop install. While it took them a full hour and consultations between mechanics on how to install without removing bumper, radiator etc, they were able to install without too many issues. I have the 3.0 diesel in a GMC Sierra 1500, so it is very tight with the inter cooler location. Front of receiver sits back about 3-4” from furthest front of truck. Lowest plastic trim needs to be cut in half and air damm trimmed to fit. Have not used it yet but look forward to trying this weekend.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Well fabricated and perfect fit , the paint was applied poorly with spots of bare metal . Shipping was on time No damage. Supplied instructions ok , better instructions on drawtite website.

I recommend touching up the affected areas with a rust resistant paint which you will then have on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

2021 GMC Sierra 1500

The Front hitch fit just right. All of the holes lined up perfectly. I actually trimmed the plastic cowling after the install for a perfect fit using a FEIN tool. The directions could be more descriptive. The top forward nuts were NOT easy to reach. Make sure you only remove the one top forward nut on the drivers side.


easy to install took less than an hour. ,good price i have a 3.0 diesel it’s different from reg gas front hitch

2021 Chevrolet Silverado

Arrived a few days after I ordered. Fits my 2021 silverado 2.7 turbo. Highly recommend.

2021 GMC Sierra

2021 Sierra reg cab: Good fit as expected. I did not have any factory bolts so I had to order some bolts from an online source. The trim instructions were not quite right for my model but not to hard to figure out corrections. I made a wood model which really helped. I use hitch for parking boat trailer in storage which makes it really easy.


Had an issue with the 1st hitch not fitting my truck but Will in customer service was great, he got my new hitch shipped to me a couple days later and my RA to send the one that didn’t fit back at no cost to me. Great company to work with!


Easy install after I figured out the nu ances.


Fif as intended.
