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.

fit perfect. looks good. and a good price. was able to buy a wiring "splitter" {brakes,signals and idle lights} at my local auto store. got it all installed. need to torque everything still. it was a satisfying installation, on my dodge ram from 95. if i may recommend something, on your website to 'suggest' buying kits for wiring in trailer lights. kind of like how other websites uses the "buyers also get this" right under the product 564585


That would be a super convenient feature to have! The trouble is, this particular hitch fits many different model year Ram trucks, but the wiring harness can vary from model year to model year, or it can vary according to how the vehicle is equipped. This is why at the top of the home page for our website, we have a fitguide where you can input your vehicle year, make and model. As you work your way through, you can choose the correct parts for your vehicle depending on how its equipped.

Simple and straightforward. Easy insta llation. 643484

I rated this the way I did because the product description said "no drilling required". I found this WAS NOT the case with the hitch that I received. The four rear holes lined up with the holes in the frame of my truck, however, the 2 front holes did not and needed to be drilled. This was a big step that I was not prepared for with a cordless drill and dull drill bits... 642610

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch for 2000 Dodge Ram with Step Bumper
  • For your 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 with a step bumper, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75101. This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your Dodge Ram with the step bumper and will use existing holes in the truck's frame for a no-drill installation. This hitch will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and a 5,000 pound towing capacity. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can take a look at. The complete hardware kit will be included. If...

  • Aftermarket Hitches Compatible with TorkLift Rear Camper Tie Down TLR3500
  • If your 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 is an 8-foot bed without a board or step underneath truck bed and with a non-Torklift aftermarket hitch, then you will use TorkLift rear camper tie-down kit # TLR3500 that you referenced. All aftermarket trailer hitch fits for the long bed with standard/step bumper are shown on the linked page. Among these are Class III hitch # 75101 from Draw-Tite, Class IV hitch # 14001 from Curt, and Class V hitch # BWHDRH25132.

  • The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75101 will not interfere with your spare tire. I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and she confirmed that there is no interference. The installation instructions for the # 75101 trailer hitch are linked for you. This hitch is confirmed to fit a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 with a standard or a step bumper, and will install in the pre-drilled frame holes on your vehicle.

  • 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 Recommendation for a 1998 Dodge Ram Sport 4x4 with Factory Roll Pan
  • If you have a 6 foot or 8 foot bed with the standard or step bumper then the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75101 would be the correct hitch for you. If you have a deep drop bumper then you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 41504. I attached a picture of what a deep drop bumper typically looks like for you to determine if you have it or not. Both of these hitches are Class III and would work well for you.

  • Hitch for Carrying Bikes on 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 w/ Factory Step Bumper
  • There are several hitches that'll work for your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. If your just looking for an attachment point for your bike racks, a Class III hitch like the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75101 would work great for you. If you were looking for something smaller, the Curt # E-3S might be a fit if you have bolt holes that line up and enough available space on the underside of your step bumper. I've provided a photo showing the dimensions of the bolt holes and of the hitch itself. The...

  • Capacity of Hitch 75101 Using Weight Distribution to Tow an RV with a 2000 Dodge Ram
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75101, is rated high enough (8,000 pounds GTW with WD). The limiting factor is how much your vehicle can tow. Check your owners manual to see what the towing capacity of your vehicle is and do not exceed it. I have included a link to the instructions for this hitch below. When towing that much weight, I recommend using a brake controller if you do not already have one. One of our most popular models is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885-3020-P....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1998 Dodge Ram
  • The factory tow package usually contains both a trailer hitch and trailer wiring harness so I will assume these are the parts you are referring to but for future reference they do not always contain the same components. The trailer hitch from your 2000 Dodge Durango WILL NOT fit your 1998 Dodge Ram as they do not share the same frame but I do have an option for you. For your Ram I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75101 which is a custom fit and has a...

  • Cost Effective Trailer Hitch for a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The rear bumper support tube is not present on a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 therefore you cannot use the Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98852 or one similar for that matter. Instead, you will need to use a frame mount trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75101. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver installs using pre-drilled holes in the frame. It comes with all of the hardware required to do so. I have attached a copy of the installation...
