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. 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.

Super fast shipping! Ordered Sunday, delivered Tuesday. The hardest part of the install was dropping the exhaust. Had to remove 6 exhaust hangers on 2011 Dodge Journey Lux. Took 1.5 hrs with about half being for the exhaust. Will certainly recommend etrailer.com to anyone in need and will purchase from them in the future. 828455

Very satisfied with my hitch from etrailer. For someone who never installed one of these it was no problem. I did it in my driveway in about 2 hours. It is heavy duty for my boat or bicycles. The bike rack looks good hooked up. These guys were very prompt with delivery I think 3 days and it was at my front door. Now for a trip to Florida and some biking on those nice Florida trails. 746694

One year ago I bought this hitch for my 2013 Dodge Journey. Was very easy to install with the video instruction. Did not use it much until now after acquirering a boat. Great construction and works as intended. Definitely would recommend to anyone to buy. 551796

Hitch has slots for front bolts. Bolts are at the outside edge on both sides and are hard to insert. I inserted one bolt and used a pry bar to get other bolt into frame. I wanted this hitch to use the extra hole for the stabilizing the cargo carrier. Nice hitch and looks good, just hard to attach. 548451

2011 Dodge Journey

Works as it should and is very sturdy, looks great too! unfortunately on my wife's 2011 dodge journey the 2 front holes weren't pre existing but drilling a hole is nothing. BUT my biggest issue with it is that both mufflers hit the hitch during any acceleration and causes an annoying vibrating sound, can't hear it outside the vehicle but definitely inside the vehicle. All in all it was a great purchase including the wiring harness. ALL WAS SUPER EASY! 546009

My husband and I just finished installing the hitch on my 2014 Dodge Journey. It shipped super fast. The written directions and install video were excellent. It took us two hours and the largest chunk of time was getting the grommets off the exhaust system. I feel so accomplished. I didn't know this was something we could do ourselves. Our first use with be for a bike rack when we head to the beach later this summer. 541684

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Dodge Journey
    I do have a solution for you, but we do not carry the Reese brand of trailer hitches. We do offer a Draw-Tite hitch that will fit your 2013 Dodge Journey just like the Reese hitch will. A Draw-Tite trailer hitch is basically the same as a Reese hitch made by the same company since Draw-Tite is one of Reese's sister brands. The trailer hitch that I recommend for your 2013 Dodge Journey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75648. This is a Class III hitch that will work with your LED light and...

  • Does Bumper or Rear Fascia Need Trimming to Install Trailer Hitch on 2013 Dodge Journey
    The hitches available for your 2013 Journey would install so the receiver tube sits just below the rear bumper, as you can see in the provided photo. As you can see in the linked instructions and install video, no cutting or trimming of the bumper or bumper fascia is needed. I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75648. If you'll be towing with your hitch, you'll also need the following to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness, part # 118536...

    We offer several trailer hitch receivers for the 2013 Dodge Journey. Both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches are available. Since you intend to tow I recommend a 2-inch Class III hitch as this will provide more capacity, but you can see all available hitches on the link provided. I recommend Draw-Tite # 75648 which includes all required mounting hardware and instructions. It bolts on without need for welding. This 2-inch hitch has a 400-lb tongue weight rating and a 4000-lb...

  • Trailer Hitch To Carry Cargo Carrier on 2019 Dodge Journey
    The hitch that you will need for the cargo carrier on the 2019 Dodge Journey is Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit part # 75648 because it provides about 2 inches more ground clearance then the other options. Good hitch clearance is important when carrying a cargo carrier because you a less likely to scrape the ground with the carrier in low ground clearance situations.

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Recommendations for 2016 Dodge Journey Crossroad With LED Lights
    Odd is a very good word to describe a company telling you that a trailer hitch would not fit your 2016 Dodge Journey Crossroad because it has LED lights. False is another word that I would use, as you can see by the accompanying photos and linked installation video of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75648 being installed on a 2016 Dodge Journey Crossroad that has LED lights. The reason I know this is a '16 Journey Crossroad with LED lights is because we also installed the T-One Vehicle...

  • Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2010 Dodge Journey
    The towing capacity of the vehicle itself is based off of the engine and transmission and a number of other factors and not simply just the trailer hitch. Since your Dodge Journey did not come equipped with the factory towing package you should stay under the towing capacity and tongue weight recommendations in the owner's manual for the 3.5 liter engine without towing package. This is the capacity of the Journey as determined by Dodge and unfortunately it cannot be increased by adding...

  • Determine if 2014 Dodge Journey has LED or Incandescent Taillights for Trailer Hitch and Wiring
    Easiest way to tell is to watch the lights illuminate. If they come on immediately with basically zero transition between off and on and are almost painful to look at you have LEDs. If you can watch the bulb get brighter and looking at the light doesn't hurt your eyes you would have incandescents. Also if the bulb is round and has that old school style of wiring in it where there is two vertical wires and a couple horizontal wires that run between them that is incandescent. For a...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroad
    For your 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroad, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75648. This trailer hitch receiver is easy to install and can tow 4000 lbs with or without a weight distribution system. This means the trailer when completely loaded can weight up to 4,000 lbs. The tongue weight is that amount of weight that rests on the hitch ball, and this hitch is rated to have up to 400 lbs resting on that hitch ball. I recommend using a weight distribution system...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2018 Dodge Journey
    The best trailer hitch receiver we have for your 2018 Dodge Journey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75648. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening. As long as your Journey is not the all wheel drive (AWD) version then this hitch will work well for you.

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2017 Dodge Journey
    The trailer hitch receiver I suggest for your 2017 Dodge Journey is the Draw-Tite # 75648. It's a Class III, 2 inch hitch which will give you more towing capacity and more options for accessories. If you're going to be towing with the Journey for a 4-way trailer harness you can use # 118536 if it has LED lights. If it has incandescent lights use # 118567. Both install by plugging into connectors behind the tail lights. You'll also need a ball mount and hitch ball. I've attached...

The trailer hitch I suggest is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75648 which is a 2 inch, Class III receiver. A 2 inch receiver will have a higher weigh capacity as well as more variety of accessories that can be used. I've attached a video of the hitch being installed for you to take a look at.

    I do have a great option for you, however the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75648 that you referenced will not fit your 1997 Dodge Dakota. This particular hitch is designed for certain model years of the Dodge Journey and it will not line up with the frame rails on the Dakota. I instead recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch # 75073 that will line right up to existing holes in the frame rails of your truck for a no-drill installation and features a nice hidden cross-tube...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Dodge Journey SXT with Dual Exhaust
    Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75648 does indeed fit a 2015 Dodge Journey with dual exhaust. In order to get to the mounting locations for the hitch you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust. Take a look at the video I have linked that shows an example installation on a model with dual exhaust. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop....

  • Towing Capacity of a 2010 Dodge Journey SXT with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75648 Installed
    If Dodge has rated your 2010 Journey for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight, that is the maximum the vehicle can tow, even if a trailer hitch is rated higher. The limiting factor is the component with the lowest capacity, which is the rating you need to go by. Unfortunately adding a weight distribution system wouldn't increase the towing capacity of the vehicle. The towing capacity of the vehicle remains static at 3,500 pounds. To complete your towing setup you may need the following: Ball...

  • Rated Towing Capacity of 2010 Dodge Journey with 2.4L Engine
    The online owner's manual for the 2010 Dodge Journey indicates (page 367) that the 2.4L version can tow up to 1000-lbs and this includes up to 5 persons and luggage. It also states that the most the vehicle and trailer together can weigh (the GCWR or gross combined weight rating) is 6000-lbs. Since the curb weight of the vehicle is a bit under 4000-lbs this suggests the car could tow close to 2000-lbs. This is shy of the 2600-lbs but not by a whole lot.

    The style of taillights your Journey has won't have any bearing on which hitch will fit. Of the hitches that are available for your Journey, I'd recommend the Curt Class III receiver hitch, part # C13201. The hitch is compatible with Crossroads Journey. The Curt Class III is the lease expensive of the three Class III alternatives, but since Curt makes a high quality product, you'll sacrifice nothing by going with a lower cost hitch.

    If the owner's manual for your 2014 Dodge Journey has your max trailer towing listed at 1,000 lbs then I don't advise going over that because that's what Dodge has tested and approved for your vehicle. If you do tow more than that and something is damaged you would most likely be voiding your warranty. For towing equipment I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75648 because it has a great look on your vehicle plus it includes a welded-on tab so you can use a bracket like part # 18144...

  • Availability of Concealed Trailer Hitch for 2016 Dodge Journey
    Because of the close proximity of the spare tire to the rear bumper, it isn't possible to conceal the hitch crosstube behind the bumper of your 2016 Dodge Journey, therefore all the hitches we offer would have the hitch mostly visible from the rear of the vehicle. Of the available hitches, the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13201 would be the least visible, because the cross tube bends upward on either side of the receiver tube, so it's a bit more concealed than the Draw-Tite or Hidden...
