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

At etrailer.com 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.

Perfect fit on my 2016 Colorado. Liked that it had attachment for Spare tire cradle. Instructions were very clear. Was able to support the bumper to not remove all the electrical wires.



by:
2016 ChevroletColorado

The hitch arrived quickly and I installed it a day or two later. When looking the job over and decided to support the bumper instead of removing it which worked out. You can see how I did it in the photo. You just have to be careful not to knock it over. At first I thought there was a problem because the hitch wouldn't fit between the frame rails and the bottom bolt holes were a little misaligned on the drivers side. I found the vertical plate on the drivers side needed a couple taps with my rubber mallet which brought everything into alignment and it went right in. Remember to torque the bottom bolts first. I ran the bottom bolts up and thought they were snug and went ahead and torqued the upper bumper bolts. It bugged me that there may have been a gap so I loosened the upper bumper bolts and rechecked the torque on the bottom bolts and found that the bolts on one side turned another half a turn or so when I rechecked the torque. I'm happy with the hitch, it looks great.

Still working fine after a year has passed.

Incredible fit in my new 2017 GMC Canyon. We are talking factory perfect. The box was perfect - no dings, bends or dents to pry back - Flawless fit. My pix say it all. The tuck under the frame is laser-perfect. Jacked into place like butter on toast - smooth. The finish is incredible - the welds look perfect - the hardware wrapped perfect. I mean 10-out-of-10 perfect. This is my third hitch from etrailer.com, and I've bought a couple harnesses for one-off projects - and I keep being impressed. Keep it up!!

a year later, and things are still perfect. zero rust, perfect fit.

Hitch arrived quickly. I had difficulties with the packed instructions. The packed instructions wanted wires disconnected. I found an etrailer you tube video much easier.
Reomend you look for the video when installing. No wires disconnected.

I just installed this Draw-Tite trailer hitch on my 2017 Colorado and expect nothing short of flawless performance going forward. The design is solid and I really like the sleek design that leaves most of the hitch hidden from view. With a pending move to some property in Oregon, towing my dump trailer ought to be a breeze thanks for this hitch and the awesome product experts at etrailer.com.



by:
2016 ChevroletColorado

High quality hitch. Installation went smooth with e-trailer's online video. I also purchased wiring kit for truck and I'm very happy with both. The installation videos are very helpful.



by:
2019 ChevroletColorado

Just finished installing your hitch on my 2019 Colorado.
I should have had another set of hands but I was able to safely install with a couple of straps. Your product fits perfect.
Where how one person can safely install your etrailer hitch. Just tighten the straps and pull it up location.

Replaced the factory bumper hitch with this receiver hitch on my 2018 Chevy Colorado. The instructions were easy to follow and actually did the removal and install by myself. Since that time I've pulled open trailers of yard debris and a 6x10 enclosed trailer and motor cycle through the NC mountains and to Sturgis and back without any issue. Solid, quality towing upgrade.



by:

A brand new 2020 Colorado truck for one of my commercial customers required this hitch. The installation took about 45 minutes as all the hardware was new and not a problem to remove. The hitch has the spare tire bracket mounting welded to it in order to keep the factory one there making this better than other brands that had not done this.



by:

Great service; great product. Received everything in 3 days to Southern California. About 3 hours total install time utilizing the EXCELLENT video showing how to splice to the factory GM harness. Very, very valuable. I could not recommend etrailer any higher. Many thanks!

BTW I prefer the DrawTite, because they retain the spare tire brace. Don’t like having parts left over.

Product is quality hitch way better than OEM that was installed on my Colorado. Only problem was powder coating came off of edges. I will have to paint before install. Still would buy again etrailer service is awesome. Part went on sale after I purchased and etrailer fixed and gave me the better price. Have bought several parts from etrailer always fast shipment and quality parts that will last.

The hitch fit perfectly and so did the power / light connector. Worked great for towing a U-Haul and my Harley.

Easy
to install, Fits perfect behind bumper. I would recommend using air-tools to install and supporting the rear bumper when installing is a must.

Product was delivered ahead of schedule. Took the hitch to our local Chevrolet dealer and had the hitch installed with no problems. A great value for this product.

What can I say? Trailer hitch, big piece of metal. But, it fit like a glove and was really impressed with the response time for order processing... they got right on it.



by:
2022 ChevroletColorado

So the hitch arrived and it was bagged,I guess thats okay but,one of the other items I needed was not in the bag which was torn open. Called CS and they said they would get one out to me only problem is it's Wednesday and I need it Friday. We'll see.



by:
2018 ChevroletColorado

The hitch looks nice on my 2018 Chevrolet Colorado and I'm happy with the overall fit and finish. The "etrailer.com" and other stickers were not quite aligned with the frame of the hitch, but these are hidden behind the bumper so I'm not concerned. Install took under two hours for one person without a lift. The hardest part was removing the original bolts, which had some sort of thread locking compound from the factory. I completely removed the bumper rather than supporting with jackstands as this gave easier access to the bolts when installing the hitch. Note that you'll need to disconnect the wiring harness for the backup camera and license plate lights if you want to remove the bumper entirely.

One year later hitch is still working great. A little surface rust inside the receiver tube but otherwise perfect.



by:
2020 ChevroletColorado

Received the hitch and wire harness 2 days after I ordered them. Installation was easy and not too time consuming. Would definitely recommend to others.



by:

I need to haul a trailer occasionally, and I hate to pay a rental place or the dealership to install a hitch. I looked all over the internet, and etrailer.com had the best selection, comparable prices, fast shipping, and nice online video of how to install, so I ordered one.
It arrived when it was scheduled to, and I installed it all by myself.
It did take quite a bit longer than an hour as the instructions said, but lying on my back, it took about 2 hours total time from securing bumper, to showing my wife. It looks great, fit perfect, and will hold much more than I will ever tow.
I also ordered the electric plug for my bumper that accepts both round trailer connector plugs as well as flat. That installed great! I love it! So convenient.
All in all I am totally happy with my order, delivery, and quality of this new hitch receiver!!

I have used this reciever probably 5 times over the past year. Works great. No complaints.



by:
2022 ChevroletColorado

Perfect fit!



by:

Very quick turn around from the time of order and date received. I watched an installation video and determined that I could install the hitch with help to lift and hold. I used jack stands to support the bumper and straps to hold the bumper in place. I struggled getting the factory bolts loose but otherwise the installation was slick. A nice addition to my 2019 Colorado.

This product is great and just what I needed for my Colorado Pick up. I used it to haul my fishing boat and for an extender for my bicycles. The seller is awesome and remains in contact to ensure that the product is performing to the specifications needed. When I service my truck the person who sold me the truck wanted to know where I got the hitch! Excellent product and my nephew installed it in no time.

It is great and the customer service is like back in the day when customer service really is what was delivered. Love my hitch!

Prefect fit. Had to laugh about the 35 minutes install time. Being of age and no power sockets, it took me much longer. But I got it done. Thanks

  • Where to Find Torque Values for Trailer Hitch Installation Hardware
    Because the hitch companies have been known to change/update the hitch mounting hardware's torque values over time, we don't publish the specific torque values as we wouldn't want folks to have outdated information that could cause a safety problem. The specific torque values for the Draw-Tite # 76004 Class III hitch are mentioned on the install sheet on page 3, just after step # 10. I'll link you to an install video that you might find helpful, as well as to a pdf copy of the installation...

    Yes, the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # HT32218 is compatible with your 2016 GMC Canyon as long as you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. If you need a trailer hitch receiver, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 76004 because of its strength. With Weight Distribution, you will want to hit the center of the total tongue weight range of the system. The total tongue weight is the fully loaded tongue weight of the trailer along...

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame is a Class IV trailer hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening. The hitch has a gross trailer weight (GTW) rating of 8,000 lb and tongue weight (TW) rating of 800 lbs though you will need to verify your vehicle's GTW and TW ratings as the lower of the two will be your limiting factor.

  • Fit of Hitches for 2015 Chevy Colorado on 2014 Isuzu D-Max LS 4x4
    I'm assuming your 2014 Isuzu D-Max is based on the 2nd generation Colorado. Because the 2nd generation Colorado wasn't available in the US until the 2015 model year, and we don't know how closely the Colorado resembles the D-Max, the hitch manufacturer can't say if the hitch will be compatible or not. They haven't test fit your particular vehicle, so they aren't prepared to guarantee the fit. I've provided a diagram showing the bolt hole spacing of the Draw-Tite # 75948. The # 87458...

    I think you meant to say that your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado has a towing capacity of 3,500 and are wanting to make sure a trailer hitch rated for 5,000 lbs could be used. If that is the case then yes but you will always need to abide by the weakest rated component which is your vehicle. Therefore, you can tow your bass boat trailer no matter what trailer hitch you are using assuming the trailer is under 3,500 lbs which is what you said your vehicle's towing capacity was.

  • Winch Mounting Recommendation for a 2016 Chevy Colorado
    If you wanted to mount your winch in front of your 2016 Chevy Colorado we have a front hitch that would work well for that. The Draw Tite part # 65071 would be a great solution. And then for a winch mounting bracket for the hitch we have the part # BDW20011. Or if you wanted to mount the winch at the rear of the vehicle you could also use a rear mounted trailer hitch with the # BDW20011. If you don't have a hitch the Draw Tite part # 76004 would be a great option as well.

  • Why Cant Original Bolts be Used to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Chevy Colorado
    The bolts included with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76004 for your 2016 Chevy Colorado are appropriately rated for the hitch capacity. The ones on the truck may not be so it is best to use the included bolts. You can still use Loctite on them if you want. I like the stick version of the Blue Loctite, # LT37643, because it just makes it easier to apply. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.
