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 - 2011 Lincoln MKS - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2011 Lincoln MKS well be installing Draw-Tite hitch part number 36477. Before we begin our installation, this is what your hitch will look like on your vehicle. Well go ahead and give you a few measurements to help you when selecting accessories. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper is 4 inches and from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 16 inches. Now lets go ahead with our install. To begin our installation, well need to lower our exhaust by removing the three rubber isolators.

Theres one just in front of the rear axle and two here at the back of the mufflers. To make this easy, we went ahead and put some spray lubricant on the isolators to help us get them off. To get them off well use an isolator hanger tool although you can use a pry bar to do the same job. We also recommend that you put a strap underneath your exhaust to help hold it to keep your exhaust from falling too far. Now that our exhaust is down, well need to remove the exhaust hangers one on each side.

Now the fasteners that weve removed from the brackets will not be reused. On the driver side exhaust bracket, we do have to modify it slightly. From the center of the hole toward the right angle here in the bracket, we need to measure one inch. This will be where well cut the bracket so that it will fit against our hitch. With that cut, we can go ahead and spray paint our bracket here where the bare metal is exposed to keep it from rusting.

Well now feed our 7/16 spacers and our carriage bolts using our pull wire here on the passenger side. Well go through our front mounting location hole here and out the access point at the back of the frame. We can then slide our spacer on and thread on our 7/16 pole. We can then pull it through feeding the spacer and the bolt into the frame and out the mounting bolt hole here. With that done on the passenger side, well move over to the driver side and for forward-most mounting location well repeat the same procedure.

Now, here on the driver side we also need to install our -inch carriage bolt and spacer. To do this, well use a reverse pull wire procedure. Well slide our spacer on to the pull wire and thread the carriage bolt into the pull wire. We can then feed the carriage bolt into the hole along with the spacer and using the pull wire, well pull it back through the hole we just slid the carriage bolt in. Now with everything in place there, were ready to raise our hitch into position. Itd be a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. On the driver side here well use the -inch nut and the -inch nut and the -inch conical tooth washer, again, making sure that the teeth of the washer are facing the hitch. We can then reinstall our exhaust hanger brackets. Well be using the M8x1.25 bolts and again after placing the bracket into position, theyll thread right into the existing weld nuts that we removed the bracket from. Now with all our hardware in place, we can go ahead and tighten it down and torque it to specification as indicated in the instructions. With all our bolts torqued, we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust which will complete the installation of Draw-Tite hitch part number 36477 on our 2011 Lincoln MKS.

I was surprised a hitch would be available for a Lincoln MKS. We wanted one primarily on which to mount a bike rack, yet I have pulled my trailer with it (don't tell my wife!). Installation would have been much easier with another pair of hands. Nonetheless it mounted perfectly and bolted up without a hitch (pun intended). You can see from the photo that only the receiver shows below the bumper fascia. 59979


Comments

Im quite certain the hitch made our MKS highly desirable as a used car, which explains the dealer phoning us after only a few days that our trade-in was sold. Our new car is a Cadillac SRX, which is also sporting a Draw-Tite hitch.

As a previous customer of etrailer this was my first and only stop once I decided I wanted a receiver for my 2013 Lincoln MKS. The shipping is always fast and instructions are clear. In the rare event I needed to contact support in the past, response time has been good and the folks at etrailer went out of their way to help me out. I only plan to use this receiver to allow use of my bike carrier so I did not install any trailer light wiring so I cannot comment on the ease of installation of that, but I can say the receiver installation went very smoothly, even doing this by myself. The most time-consuming part of the installation is one of the tailpipe hanger brackets needs to have an alignment tab cut off of it. The bracket is easy to remove, but cutting the tab off takes some time. I also painted the newly exposed bare metal and had to wait for that to dry before reinstalling. If not for that, I'm not sure the installation would have even taken 45 minutes solo. 658682

  • What is the Best Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Lincoln MKZ
