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.

This item was a godsend at a time when seeking an appropriate item for my truck was becoming very difficult. I searched and searched and all were almost compatible but no one at any of these companies could verify if this would fit my truck specifically, until I happened to stumble upon this company. They answered all my questions and guaranteed me it would fit/ and it did and I could not be happier. If and when I get a new truck I’m coming back her for my hitch and tow needs no doubt!



by:

Shipping was very fast. I installed the hitch and wiring harness over the weekend. The instructions were easy to follow. I did it myself; however an extra set of hands would have made it a little easier. The DrawTite hitch is more substantial than the original bumper support. It fit perfectly. The Hopkins wiring harness was easy to hook up and it looks like an OEM part. I’m very happy with my purchase.



by:

I want to give you guys 5 stars, but the quality control is not the best, unfortunately it was not covered in the right way when you shipped the trailer hitch and this can cause rust soon. But fits perfect

A few 3/8 inch chips in the powder coat of hitch. Was an easy install once all the old parts were out of the way.2020 Colorado

I installed the hitch reciever and the 4 and 7 pin plug but what's the wiring harness I'll need? I figured that would be with the plug.

If you need a 7-way plug on your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado I recommend part # C55774. This curt connector plugs into the OEM tow package on the Colorado. If the vehicle does not have an OEM towing package then you will need part # HM11141144 which will hardwire into the trucks bare factory wiring at the rear of the truck.

First of all, the delivery of this trailer hitch receiver was quick. It came well packaged, all the parts needed in addition to the electrical connection which was ordered, were included int he box with the hitch. It was just as described in the advertisement and installation was just as viewed in the video on you tube. the installation was easy and the wiring was correctly color coded to my truck. I recommend etrailer for all your towing needs. I will use thin again in the future!

Hitch went on without issue. Removing factory parts took infinitely longer ! Definitely easier with 2 people. Hitch looks great, I chose the round bar to match my Westin step bars. Also installed the Hopkins HM40975-11998 wiring kit that fits in the factory bumper cut out it looks super clean with no dangling wires. Watched the 2 videos a few times (hitch and wiring) and it took about an hour and a half to install both.

I just finished installing my Draw-Tite hitch to my new Colorado and the whole process from purchase to final installation was a breeze.

The hitch arrived two days from when I ordered with a very thorough set of instructions. I also watched a youtube video to familiarize myself with the install.

I highly recommend etrailer.com Great pricing and fast shipping is a winning combo.

For the 2018 Chevy Colorado, everything went very easily. The only hard part was removing the original bolts on the factory hitch and bumper. An impact wrench is suggested, but it would be harder with the bumper bolts. I suspended the bumper with cords from above rather than jack stands. The bumper is very light and cords from above give much more flexibility to fit the new bolts in place. Did the whole job without a lift and entirely by myself. Nothing heavy or requiring a second or third person. The electrical hookup was the simplest ever with the factory wiring already in place. No need to get into the tail lights. All excellent.

First off, I can hardly believe how quickly my order (hitch receiver, ball mount and wiring kit) arrived. I ordered it Wednesday during business hours, selected standard shipping (free) and it was waiting for me at home on Friday afternoon. I installed it all this morning. As others have mentioned, it definitely takes longer to remove the factory parts than it does to install the new parts. Make sure you have an extension for your socket set to make getting the rearmost bolt out/in of the frame easier. One thing to note, the installation videos that were suggested to me for this hitch receiver said that the spare tire cradle could not/would not be re-installed, however, this particular hitch has a flange that allows for the cradle to be reinstalled again. All you have to do is pop off the threaded clips from the factory receiver and install them on the new receiver. This can be done easily using a flat screw driver. One other "tip & trick" is that the shipping box that the receiver came in can be used as a nice cushion on the garage floor to give you some insulation/padding if you're not fortunate enough to have a lift at your disposal. Just pull out all the staples and flatten the box, presto-chango, there you go!

The hitch was an exact fit for the truck it was purchased for and delivered in excellent condition. Dealing with etrailer.com has been easy and the hitch was a very good value. This is the 2nd purchase I've made from etrailer.com and I will go back to them again if needed. Recommend them highly.



by:

Easier to install than we expected. The Chevy Colorado has a bar behind the bumper that must be removed before installing the hitch. It wasn't as difficult as we expected. The hitch seems to be great quality and heavy duty.

The ordering was easy, came when was promised. It fit well, instructions were good. All works great.
Very good company to deal with.
Thank you

Very easy to install. It arrived with some large areas where the powder coating had been chipped off. Had to prime and paint before installation, But otherwise can’t wait to use it to tow a new camper we purchased.

I really like it. Works great and fast in getting to my house in a day. Thanks! Matt

Received products in a very timely manner. Will consider you for future purchases. Thank You!



by:

Item works as it should and wasn't to bad to install. Asthethically it seems as if it's under engineered because of the side plates that are on the factory part but not this upgrade.

  • Installation of Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2016 Chevrolet Colorado
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75948 does not include the spare tire cradle. The diagram in the installation instructions (which I've linked) is showing where the cradle is located in reference to the hitch however if you read Step 1 it states, "Remove (2) bolts at spare tire cradle (keep to re-install)." If you plan to tow with your 2016 Chevy Colorado you'll also need a trailer wiring harness. The Hopkins # HM11141164 harness is confirmed to fit. It plugs directly into the...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness For 2019 Chevy Colorado
    Wiring harnesses are independent of a hitch, but for your 2019 Chevy Colorado, to add wiring along with hitch # 75948, use the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Connector # HM11141164.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Chevy Colorado With the Most Ground Clearance
    The trailer hitch receiver with the most ground clearance for your 2020 Chevy Colorado is the the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98909 along with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13176. When we test fit these hitches on a 2020 Chevy Colorado we found they measured 18-3/4 inches from the top of the receiver to the ground (about 16-1/2 inches from the bottom of the receiver to the ground). Their counterparts from Draw-Tite were close, with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76004...

  • Trailer Hitch, Trailer Connector and Towing Accessories Suggested for 2020 Chevy Colorado
    A hitch is indeed available! I'd recommend the US made Curt Class III hitch, part # C13176. The hitch has a 8000 lbs towing/800 lbs tongue weight capacity, so it'll be able to handle any towing job you throw at it (as long as you don't exceed the towing capacity of the truck itself). If your truck doesn't already have a trailer connector, I'd recommend # HM11141144 which provides both a 7-way and a 4-pole connector. You'll also need a ball mount like # 2923 and # 19260 for a 1-7/8 or...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Suggestion for 2022 Chevy Colorado LT
    We do indeed offer hitch options for the 2022 Chevy Colorado. Of the available options, I'd recommend the US made etrailer brand Class III hitch, part # e98909. The hitch has a 8000 lb towing/800 lb tongue weight capacity, which actually exceeds the towing capacity of the truck itself, so there's no doubt that the hitch is tough. For a trailer wiring harness and trailer connector that provides both a 7-way and a 4 pole trailer connector, use part # HM40975-11998. For a ball mount, use...
