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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Jeep Liberty

Today were working on a 2012 Jeep Liberty we're going to install hidden hitch part number 36451. This would be also be comparable to Draw-tite hitch 90168. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you in selecting accessories from the new hitch such as a draw bar, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost point of the hitch pass the bumper is 2 inches, from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 19 inches. Now lets go ahead with the installation. Were gonna be attaching our hitch to the weld nuts that are already setup in the frame of the vehicle.

The rear 2 most attachment points will be our attachment points for our hitch. Over time the threads on the weld nuts will become gummed up with dirt, dust, and debris so its recommended to spray them out with a little spray lubricant and then well clean them out with a half inch nylon toothbrush. Then I like to take my fastener and go ahead and thread it in just to make sure its gonna go nice and easily if it will go in by hand we know we can go ahead and install our hitch in this fastening point. Ill go ahead and repeat the same process for other 3 fastening points. Now were now ready to go ahead and install our hitch.

Well be using our bolt and conkle tooth washer that are supplied in our install kit, the teeth of the washer are gonna face the hitch. Its a good time to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch in place while you install yuour fasteners. Once all each of our fastener is finger tight until we get them all in place, with all of our fasteners in place well go ahead and tighten them down. With all of our fasteners tighten down we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. With that it completes the install of our hidden hitch part number 36451..

2012 Jeep Liberty

Great item, there jig was off by a 1/2 inch on the back hole after I got the first 3 bolts in, nothing a little prying didn't take care of and thanks to the gentleman who suggested the 12mm 1.75 tap HUGE help in the installation, honestly you will not get the bolts in without it, there was a lot of gunk in the holes especially if you have the undercoating. Just an FYI. 758750

Great Fit!! Holes on the Jeep lined up perfectly. 739731

2010 Jeep Liberty

Had only one problem with the hitch. The holes in the hitch did not quit match holes in frame. I had to modify them to fit. Other than that quite happy with the hitch and wiring kit. 720750

2012 Jeep Liberty

My wife Jennifer purchased this hitch for our Jeep liberty. It took me awhile to get the bolts to work. Thought they were too big. Had to really clean the threads that were in the frame. Actually used WD40 & a round wire brush. Bolts fit... torqued them to spec. AND I can't recommend this product enough. We use this hitch for our bike rack...Love it !!! 519899

Great product, all items were their, was as described on website. Was easy to install (45min.), that includes getting tools etc. and putting everything away. received in two days. Good design, has clearance for spare tire, well made with square tubing going thru supports. Would recommend. Even adds to vehicles appearance. 473190

No problems, good purchase. It is as good as the day I installed it.

2012 Jeep Liberty

Product was delivered in a timely manner. Instructions were clear...even found a video on YouTube which helped. End result - looks great! Will be using almost immediately for a small vacation (luggage platform)....then using for trailer (son is college bound). Thanks for a great product! Not sure about the wiring. Seems too much for an average person. May have local shop do that. 218604

2008 Jeep Liberty

Bought this for my 2008 Jeep Liberty. Great product but some flaws. Cons: 1. Screws they gave me were too big, But, sounds like it's not their fault because I called a Jeep Deslership and they gave me the same screw size..got a small screw and fit the holes perfectly. I looked at other blogs and everybody is saying to use a small screw. Believe I used 5/8" inch..can update when I look again 2. My hitch had 4 screw holes. 3 of the 4 screws matched up perfectly and screwed in with ease. The 4th screw hole, not so much. Had to pull on the hitch with a crow bar to match the holes to set the 4th screw in. It was off by about a 1/8 - 1/4 of an inch. Pros: 1. Sleek and tucked away hitch..as advertised. I still have easy access to my spare tire under the Jeep and hitch does not interfere. 2. I installed it by myself..2 people is what they recommend but it can be done with one person. Just a little tougher Overall, I'd buy it again as oppose to buying a jeep tow package/bumper from the dealership. Not as an easy install as they say but product is reliable once installed 138940

  • Are More Parts Needed to Carry a Bike Rack Using Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Jeep Liberty
    A trailer wiring kit is to power the lights of a trailer. Since you're going to be using the Curt hitch, part # 13245, for a bike rack and not to tow a trailer you won't need a wiring kit, or anything else. The hitch includes all of the hardware for installation and that's all you need. To mount the bike rack you could need a hitch pin, like # PC3, but that depends on the rack. Many have specific pins that work with the rack and a universal one won't work. It's likely you already have...
