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

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Jeep Patriot - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today on our 2010 Jeep Patriot, we're going to be taking a look at, and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class II trailer hitch receiver, part number 36423. Now that we have our hitch installed, as you can see, the cross tube is hidden behind the bumper. The only thing you can see is your receiver tube. It's going to be 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch receiver tube hole, and a 1/2 inch size hitch pin hole. Nice loop style design for your safety chains. It's going to give you plenty of room to hook on the front, or the back.

This hitch is going to be a 300 pound max tongue weight, and a 3,500 pound max trailer weight. I do recommend you check your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight.Now we will give you a couple of measurements, to help when deciding on any hitch mounted accessories you may need, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper, will be about six inches. From the ground to the top of the inner most part the receiver tube, will be able 13 1/2 inches. First thing we're gonna do, is we're gonna lower the exhaust.

Before doing that, we want to put a support strap. Now I just like to hook them to the springs on the vehicle, and just run them under the pipe.Now that we've got our support strap on, we're gonna go ahead and take some soapy water, and we're going to spray our exhaust hangers. Now we're going to have two of them. You got one on the passenger side here, and you're gonna have one on the driver's side here. Remove our exhaust hanger, and we've going to do the same thing with the other.

Once you have your hangers removed, go ahead and lower your exhaust. Just kind of cinch it a little bit to support it, so it doesn't hang by itself.Now in your included hardware, what you're going to do, is you're going to take one bolt, and you're going to feed it through the backside. It's going to come out this hole. The other one is going to come out this hole. Now you want to make sure you don't push it all the way through, so when you put your hitch up in there, it doesn't hit the bolt.

Just put it enough where you can see the tip of it there. We're going to repeat this on the other side.Now with an extra set of hands, we'll go ahead and get our hitch up into place. Now you're going to have a conical toothed washer, and you're going to have a lock washer. The conical toothed washer, you can see it has teeth on it. What you want to make sure is it goes in toward the hitch. Now this one is going to go on the bolt towards the front of the car. The lock washer is going to be towards the bolt. It's going to on the bolt towards the back of the car. Once you get those in place, go ahead and put your nuts on. We're gonna repeat that process on the other side.Now what we want to do is go ahead and tighten up our bolts. Then we're going to repeat that process on the other side. Now once you get your bolts tightened down, we're going to go ahead and torque them down to the recommended specifications in your instructions. Then we're going to repeat that process on the other side. Now that we have our hitch installed, we'll go ahead and put our exhaust back in place. Again, spray your hangers with some soapy water. Once you have that back up, you can go ahead and remove your safety strap. That will do it for the Draw-Tite Class II trailer hitch receiver, part number 36423, on our 2010 Jeep Patriot.

The hitch installed well and I'll no doubt be happy with it. Installation is well within the DIY range. The video was quite helpful. Still, I have a few thoughts for improvement: (1) Removing the rubber muffler mounts was by far the most difficult step, and some additional suggestions would be useful. I managed to get them off by using a small flat head screwdriver along the shaft and prying the rubber mount over the shoulder. There's no way they were just going to slide off. (2) The mounting bolts & nuts are 7/8" - a problem since most standard socket sets & box-end wrench sets have 3/4" as the largest size. I had to buy a socket & combination wrench in order to tighten - pliers were a non-starter. (3) Nowhere in the video or the printed instructions does it say how far (vertically) to cut the fascia. There's a photo in the printed instructions that helps you guess, but an expected measurement would be helpful. 683344

Very well built, clean welds and I'm sure will serve many years of towing. Only suggestion, is on my car (2016 Jeep Patriot) lowering the exhaust via the rubber hangers was suggested. That is virtually impossible so I pulled all the plastic push riverts out of the bumper cover and had my son just pull on the bumper cover, providing ample room for install. 440979

2012 Jeep Patriot

Hitch is exactly as I expected. Installation is just like the video. 2012 Jeep Patriot. I am 70, reasonably fit for age, and managed it without assistance and without a hoist or jacking vehicle. Supported the exhaust system on wood blocks during the installation. On 2012 Patriot there is a emissions control-related cannister in left rear that interferes a little but can be maneuvered around without much trouble. Socket wrench extensions are probably a necessity. Unless a person is mechanically challenged or in subpar condition, I think this 1 person self install of this hitch on the Patriot is quite doable. Otherwise, get a teenager to help. 400553

It fits - installed on a new 2016 Jeep Patriot. Build quality of the hitch is OK, but had some burrs that needed filing off. I would not say it's an easy installation, but it can be done without dropping the exhaust system. 236649

I installed this hitch on a 2011 Jeep Patriot yesterday. The instructions are horrible. The part with the measurements are very confusing and they would have you cut the fascia lengthwise 2". Well let me tell you that I ended up cutting 3 3/4" up the fascia to get this hitch on there. The instructions need some modifications. The hitch is a draw-tite and they speak for themselves. The instructions didn't mention dropping the exhaust either. I found that in one of the three videos I watched. 179090

Hitch was fairly easy to install in my son's 2011 Jeep Patriot. Had to pull on the exhaust fairly hard and manhandle the hitch into place. Only took 45 minutes. I used an oscillating saw to cut the rear fascia instead of the rotorzip. 82161

Product is perfect for the car but could not be done due to the wrap around bumper meaning I had to have it professionally installed and I was also under the impression that the ball and wireing were included in the package.I obviously did not read in the correct places and am at a trailor install place now having it installed and ordered the wireing and ball extension for this model. Product itself excellent. 64580

Ordering was a "breeze" and delivery was extremely prompt. Installation was very easy, took less than an hour. Most of installation time was spent on getting tools to fit in a tight area in order to tighten the bolts. Installation directions were very good, with diagrams to help. Hitch will hold a bike rack, which went on very easily. Look forward to ordering wiring for my light trailer. I will submit a picture at a later date.This hitch went on a 2008 Jeep Patriot. 56457

Great Packaging, All was nuts & bolts 1st. grader stuff BUT one 5/8" bolt needed a little muscle it didn't line-up ; I think my Jeep Patriot was built crooked . On the Lights #56019 If you use that Aluminum Nut on the plastic canister on the steel stud, IT MAY NOT GROUND!The canister needs to be pulled down off the stud, put the ground wire loop up next to the chassis, replace the plastic canister and wrench the alum. nut tight..Or just drill a hole and use the screw they provided for a GOOD ground totally MOST IMPORTANT.... 43871

The included instructions were poor on how to install the hitch on a Jeep Patriot because some of the fascia needed to be cut. Also the drawbar was not sent. I have contacted etrailer.com and received no reply on this as of yet. I hope this matter gets resolved and they can show they have great customer service. 43461

Great price on the hitch and received free shipping when i purchased a Jeep receiver cover and Christian fish emblem to bring the total to just over the required $150.00 minimum for free shipping . With minimal experience I installed the hitch on my 2012 Jeep Patriot in under an hour and it looks great ! I did not get the wiring package at this time as I only intend to be hauling my bike rack and Mountain Bikes to the Mountain Bike Trails near and far . Thanks e trailer for a great product at a great price ! 43086

Received Hitch and accessories in 3 days, excellent service. Installed it the next day. Item fit a Jeep Patriot 2012 like a glove with no drilling. Installation was about 2 hours with clean up. Jeep Patriot has a plastic bumper cover that curls under the back and is really in the way of getting your hands where you need them. Other problem is due to a plastic box on the drivers side next to the muffler (pollution control??) Torquing down the nuts to 100ft lb was time con- summing, as very little swing room is there. The cut out required for the tongue was a snap with an air tool cutter I have. Otherwise an A+ product that fits perfect. 42500

The trailer hitch I ordered for my Jeep Patriot works great, easy to put in place and the bolt in system is the best! No drilling, no welding, just place the bolts thru the exsisting holes in your frame and tighten. There isn't to much room to work by the frame, but with a little patience you'll realize how much time and money your saving. 34037

Bought this for my 2010 Compass. First, shipping was fast. Installation took 20 minutes for the hitch. Looks great, fits right. I also bought the vehicle specific wiring kit... admittedly I only bought it to qualify for free shipping, but after installing the kit, I will never ever ever splice another wire on my vehicles again. So clean looking, easy, and you don't have to cut wires on your new car or truck. Great hitch, easy install, the wiring kit is highly recommended, fast shipping....overall just a great experience. 30072

This is a very nice product. I used my floor jack and installed the hitch without a problem. The only thing that is a problem is re-installing the rear tow hook. Draw-Tite says to simply drill out the tow hook to 5/8" and install with the hitch. Well, let me tell you that tow hook is very hard. After trying 3 metal bits on my drill press, I took the hook to a tool and die shop. They had a tough time drilling through it with their bits. The owner said "wow that thing was hard". I've read many forums where people are re-installing the hook and hitch with the original Jeep hook bolts. I was not comfortable doing that. Anyway, the hitch and hook are installed with the supplied 5/8" bolts, torqued down, and lookin good. 27442

The product is good however the box it was shipped in is very poor. You need to restrain the hitch in the box so it will not end up mostly out of the box upon receipt. 17317

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Can a 1-1/4 Inch Bike Rack be Used in a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • You can still use your 1-1/4 inch bike rack with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. The first thing I would check is to see if there is an adapter sleeve or alternate shank that is designed specifically for your bike rack in order to use it in a 2 inch hitch. This would be the most ideal way to adapt the bike rack to fit the new hitch. If a specific adapter is not available, you can use a reducer sleeve to convert the 2 inch hitch to a 1-1/4 inch for times when you want to use the bike...

  • Recommendation For Hitch That Clears The Muffler On A 2010 Jeep Compass
  • Having the exhaust system contact and rattle against the hitch is a fairly common occurrence that can happen with just about any vehicle. You can install the hitch on two identical vehicles, and it'll rattle on one and not on the other. When the hitch is installed, it's in a static or fixed postion. It will not move. Due to the rubber isolators used to install exhaust systems, the exhaust system can move around a bit and its exact location can vary a bit from vehicle to vehicle. There's...

The main difference between these two hitches for your vehicle is that the Class III hitch is going to provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening which will allow many more accessories to be used in the hitch.

  • Bolts For Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Jeep Patriot Will Not Fit Factory Weldnuts
  • It sounds like what you are experiencing are weldnuts that are packed with grime and corrosion. This happens if a vehicle has seen at least 1 winter. You will need to clean out the weldnuts using a spray lubricant like WD-40, a wire brush like # DW00254, and some muscle. I have included some links that will explain and show you how to get the weldnuts cleaned out so you can install the bolts and hitch.

  • Is Trimming Required to Install the Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch # 36423 on a 2014 Jeep Patriot
  • The Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch, # 36423, will fit your 2014 Jeep Patriot and some fascia trimming is required. The hitch will bolt to the frame, but part of the bumper fascia must be trimmed for the receiver. I have attached the installation instructions for this hitch that includes several diagrams and dimensions that you will find helpful when determining where to trim the fascia. All of the trailer hitches offered for your Jeep Patriot require fascia trimming.

  • Class II Trailer Hitch Availability for a 2014 Jeep Patriot
  • Your owners manual will be the final authority on towing capacities for your 2014 Jeep Patriot. Most of the info I found on your vehicle said 2,000 lbs was the max capacity, but you will need to verify that with the owners manual since different equipped versions of the same vehicle can have different capacities. That being said, you can use a trailer hitch on your vehicle that has a higher capacity than your vehicle. You would just have to be sure not to exceed the vehicle capacity....

  • Is the Drawbar Pin and Clip Included With Draw-Tite, 36423, Class II Receiver Hitch on 2009 Jeep
  • No, the draw bar, pin and clip are not included with the Draw-Tite Class II Trailer Hitch, part # 36423. The manufacturer recommended drawbar for the 2009 Jeep Patriot is, part # 36061, which needs to be used in the rise position only. You will also need a hitch pin and clip, part # PC2, and a properly sized hitch ball, part # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). If you do not already have trailer wiring, you will need the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118552,...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with a 2010 Nissan Altima with a Class I Hitch
  • I believe I have an option for carrying 4 bikes with your Altima, but the thing about using a hitch adapter is that they cut the capacity of the hitch in half due to the increased leverage and movement the adapter creates. Since the hitch on your 2010 Nissan Altima is most likely a Class I hitch with a 200 lb tongue capacity and using a hitch adapter would reduce that down to 100 lbs, you would not have enough capacity for the weight of your rack plus 4 bikes. Also, Class I hitches...

  • Economical 2-Bike Rack Recommendation for 2012 Jeep Patriot
  • If the Jeep Patriot has a 1-1/4 inch size hitch installed on it the Reese bike rack part # 63120 would fit and work well. There are 1-1/4 inch hitches available for a 2012 Jeep Patriot like the Draw Tite hitch part # 36423 but you would still want to measure the hitch of the vehicle to be sure as there are also 2 inch hitches available for this vehicle too. The other option is to go with a bike rack that can fit both hitch sizes of 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch so that you don't have to measure...
