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.

Initial review: delivery only. Everything arrived exactly when promised and exactly as ordered. One of the interior boxes holding the trailer hitch failed and the main crossbar broke through the sidewall, but there was no noticeable damage. The exterior box held fast and contained everything just fine. The package of hardware was missing a single flat washer, but it was easily replaced from my personal stockpile. Just being honest and thorough. No real problems, to be sure. The three-piece hitch bolted together without a--ahem--hitch. (Couldn't resist...) I sized it up to my truck frame, and when I get another helper, I'll finish the install. It's a two-man job for sure...don't want to get a "hitch" in my side... Once installed, I'll take some photos and share my results of the completed job. 575589

My first impression was that this hitch is very structurally sound, made with thick gauge tube and sheet metal. It's heavy enough that you'll want a second set of hands to get it fitted and installed. It assembled easily and fit my '66 F-250 styleside. My only real gripe is that the so-called powder coating chips off at the slightest contact with anything metal. It behaves more like really thick paint than a quality hammer-proof powder coating. I barely have it installed and already it looks well used. I hope the E-coat is more than a marketing gimmick and keeps the cross-tube from rusting out. Also made in Mexico FWIW. 449117

Instruction book torn up........ Had to piece and tape together. Bolts for cross tube assemble....9/16-18x 1-1/2 were way to long. Had to use 4-5 extra washers for each bolt because the flange locknut wouldn't make up on the bolt far enough to tighten........hence all the extra washers. You'd think you guys would have at least tried to assemble one for a trial test. Luckily I had the extra washers as going to town is 45 mi. Each way. 431622


Comments

Thanks for the feedback Gary. This hitch is a multi-fit hitch, and is designed to work with a variety of vehicles so the hardware that is included may vary by what is needed depending on the configuration of the vehicle. Here is a link to the installation instructions for your reference.

First off, the shipping was very fast. It was delivered sooner then promised. And now the product. On my hitch, the forward right mounting tab looked slightly bent, but after closer examination it appears the tab was welded on an angle at the factory and didn’t have any effect on where the hitch mounted to the frame. The product itself when put together was very heavy, but I still was able to install it myself with a floor jack that has a rubber pad, (kept the hitch from sliding around.). I’m not sure if the frames on K models or 3/4 tons on up have the holes in the same spot, but mine has 6 holes which do not lineup with each other. You’ll have to drill a minimum of 4 holes. My frame has two holes that matched up with the two center holes on the hitch, which worked out perfect. I just enlarged the holes a little for slight adjustment. I bolted it down, marked the frame for the remaining four holes. This puts the receiver hole of the hitch right at the end of my license plate mounting bracket. I used a shime on the center and rear mounting holes to lower the hitch just a little so I didn’t have to grind the license plate mounting bracket to fit around the end of the hitch. The forward two mounting tabs are touching the frame with no shimes. BTW, the paint kinda scuffs easy. This is my second Draw-Tite hitch. My first one is still doing great. I also added a couple of photos. The photo of the hole is the one that the center mounting tab of the hitch mounts to. That’s the only spot on the frame that has that curve. 457218

Hitch was delivered on time. To my surprise, no drilling was necessary. It bolted right up. The unit is beefy and modular which made assembly a snap. Also, it came with ample hardened hardware, enough for whatever your preferred installation requires. Excellent buy, great quality. Strongly recommend it. 488709

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 1970 Ford F-100 with Standard Bumper

  • Trailer Hitch Options for a 1989 GMC Sierra 3500 with 37 Inch Wide Frame Spacing
  • Your generation of GMC truck (1989 3500) had an interesting model. The crew cab models of that era were built on the same chassis as the cab and chassis (models turned into service trucks) which have the more narrow 34 inch frame. So any hitch that states it is for Crew Cab models or 34 inch frames will not fit. Hitches that do NOT fit the Crew Cab models include: Draw-Tite # 37130 Draw-Tite # 40050 Draw-Tite # 41901 Draw-Tite # 75099 Draw-Tite # 75033 Draw-Tite # DT45506 Draw-Tite...

  • Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for 1990 Ford F-150
  • For your 1990 Ford F-150 the Draw Tite hitch part # 41004 is a confirmed fit and would work well. There would be no need to measure your frame width. The Draw Tite part # 40050 is a multi-fit hitch instead which is designed for universal applications. It would technically fit your truck but it wouldn't give you as nice of a fit so the # 41004 would be the better option.

  • Hitch Ball Mount and Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 1965 Ford F100 to be Used in Germany
  • For your 1965 Ford F100, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III trailer hitch part # 40050 if your truck has a standard or step bumper. For a truck with a deep drop bumper # 41504 is the hitch that you would need. A 50mm diameter ball like # 63912 is the standard tow ball in European countries. Pair this with Ball Mount # 80232, and Ball Bushing # 320000 to get your vehicle ready to tow. I do want to mention that in European countries different hitches are used compared to what we...

  • Mounting Hole Spacing for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver 40050
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure trailer hitch # 40050 for you. The mounting holes that are closest together are 4-7/8 inches apart on center. And from the center hole to the one furthest away it is 9-5/8 inches on center. There is a large clearance hole in the side brackets as well. From the first hole (furthest back on the vehicle) to the center of that clearance hole is 2-1/2 inches. And from the middle hole to the center of the clearance hole is 2-3/8 inches.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1964 Chevy C/K 20 4x4 and 2001 Ford F-350 Front Hitch
  • Although the Draw-Tite # 40050 is only for 1964 Chevy C/K 8 foot bed 2WD as you stated, there are other options available for your 4x4 truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75034 which is a fit for your truck if you have a standard bumper. If you have a deep drop bumper, then I recommend the # 41504. All of these hitch receivers are compatible with the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches...

  • For your 1987 Chevrolet Silverado The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for the Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup, 1987 part # 40050 allows you to retain the stock spare tire location. Removing the tire temporarily for this install is optional. However, it is recommended and it will make the install easier to complete.

  • Trailer Hitch Compatibility with 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75101 will not fit models with the roll pan bumper. This bumper is molded and normally painted to match the truck and be flush with the tailgate like the attached photo. If you have this bumper style, then you will instead use the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 40050. Your bumper is not a roll pan based on your question, so you can use the Draw-Tite # 75101.

  • Draw-Tite hitch # 41001 should work well on your 1986 Chevrolet Silverado, but you would need to either modify the spare tire hanger or relocate the spare tire in order for the hitch to fit. We do offer a hitch specifically for the 2-wheel drive models, part # 40050, but modification or relocation of the spare tire would also be required to install this hitch.

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 40050 Fit 1970 Ford F-250?
  • I checked with Draw-Tite and hitch # 40050 is a confirmed fit for a 1970 Ford F-250 pickup with a standard or step bumper, regardless of if it is a 4WD or 2WD. The linked instructions detail that it will fit both 34" and 38" wide frames on 1979 and earlier Ford F-Series trucks. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver that has a 6,000 lb towing capacity and 600 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Does Gas Tank have to be Removed to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 1996 Ford Bronco
  • Since access to the frame is blocked on your 1996 Ford Bronco what you can do is fishwire in the bolts and spacer blocks by using a large enough access hole for the frame or, if no hole exists, you could make a hole through which to run the bolts and blocks using fishwire # 80101-1. I have linked a help article that has a section that explains fishwiring. Looking through the other hitches for your Bronco all of them attach to the bottom of the frame rails in the same manner so if fishwiring...

  • Trailer Hitch for 1990 GMC Sierra With Roll Pan Bumper
  • We do have an option for a trailer hitch that will fit your 1990 GMC Sierra with your customized roll pan bumper but Draw-Tite hitch # 40050 will not work. The hitches that are confirmed to fit your truck are the Draw-Tite # 41522 and Curt # 13942, though these will require you to cut your bumper for receiver access.

  • While there aren't any custom hitches that will bolt right up to your 1966 Chevy Impala we do have universal hitches that could work. The best option is going to be # 15903. This is a weld-on hitch so it will need to be installed by a professional welder. It will fit your 50 inch wide frame (it may even have to be trimmed shorter!). I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. We also have a similar hitch from Buyers, # 3371801051, which has shorter brackets.
