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.

1994 Ford F-150

I just needed to drill 6 holes in my truck frame to mount the receiver hitch on my 94 Ford F 150. It works great. Thanks!!


Bolt on hitch that works! Purchased this for a one time use to pull a car trailer with my 1994 f150 that only had bumper pull. This hitch worked perfect and now I use it all the time. Should have bought it years ago. Sold welds and construction.

1996 Ford F-250 and F-350

Great website,hitch installed very easily---no drilling necessary. Fast shipping, great service all around! Thanks for the updates on shipping progress.


i added the info on with the wiring har ness.

1995 Ford F-150

Hitch came quick and fit my 95' f-150 great. Took me probably an hour and a half to install.
There was some paint flake in a few spots and a little surface rust on the end of the receiver, which isn't to big of a deal in my opinion. For $150 with free shipping I am happy.


Shipped early! Box was open and damaged but appeared to be complete.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Perfect fit, easy to install, etrailer was very easy to work with, definitely recommend them!

Ford F-150

Great product and fast shipping. Bolted right up.
Clamped hitch to pickup frame and drilled the required holes. Thanks again.

Got a few more things to order from you guys yet!

1994 F-150 straight 6 8’ bed regular cab.


Very nice looking hitch.


Product works as intended. We also received on-time and packaged well.

1994 Ford F-150

Arrived in great condition, fit perfectly, installed smoothly. The hardest part was drilling the holes in the frame. Installed in about 2 hours after dinner one day.

After 1 year, Im still happy with this product. No rust, and works just as smoothly as when I installed it. One tip I should have mentioned in the original review: vise grips were very helpful during installation to keep everything aligned. Great product.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Will My Spare Tire Still Fit After Installing The Draw-Tite 41004 On A 1994 Ford F-150
    From what I could find out, the Draw-Tite # 41004 will sit below the frame rails and not inside them at all. So as long as your spare tire sits in between said frame rails, there will be absolutely no issue at all. I did include a picture of this hitch installed as well, but I am not sure what year truck it is installed on. It should still be a good reference though.

  • Do Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches # 41904 and # 41004 Mount in the Same Places on a 1994 Ford F-350
    I went out to measure both Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches, # 41904 and # 41004. They will not use the same mounting locations. On # 41904, the center to center distance between the two closest bolt holes is 4-3/4 inches. Between the center bolt hole and the farthest it is 9 inches. This hitch has 9/16 inch bolt holes. On # 41004, the center to center distance between the two closest bolt holes is 5-3/4 inches. Between the center bolt hole and the farthest it is 8 inches. This hitch has 1/2...

  • 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.

  • What Hitch will Work Best on my 1982 Ford F-250 with an Aftermarket 38 Gallon Fuel Tank
    I've checked the hitches and while none of them actually come inside of the frame rails the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 41004 will offer the most clearance of the three options you have mentioned.

  • Operation Speed of the Bulldog Portable Air Compressor
    The Bulldog Winch Portable Air Compressor # BDW41004 will fill a tire at 1.2 cubic feet per minute at its maximum. The tire size will make a big difference in how long it will take to inflate. The average tire will be around 3 to 3-1/2 cubic feet, so you are most likely looking at just under 3 minutes to fill a tire from empty to full. The hose will screw right onto your valve stem so you will not need to hold the hose to the valve stem the entire time. This is a really nice feature....

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 1987 Ford F-150 with 6,000 lb Towing Capacity
    Due to the frame design of your 1987 Ford F-150 all hitch fits would require frame drilling since there aren't holes present on the frame. We do have great 6k rated hitches that fit your truck like the # 41004 though. This fits whether you have the standard or step bumper.

    I contacted Draw-Tite about the Class III Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch, item # 41004. Draw-Tite informed me that the measurement they have is 5-3/4 inches from the mounting location to the top of the receiver tube that the drawbar slides into.

  • Will the Draw Tite Hitch # 41004 fit a 1992 F-Super Duty/F450 W/Liftgate
    I do not have a confirmed fit for your 1992 Ford F450 with the Eagle Lift liftgate, but I spoke to my contact at Draw Tite and he informed me of a way for you to determine by taking a few measurements on your vehicle. He said that from the rear most mounting hole to the end of the receiver tube is 10-7/8 inches. So if you can find that hole and then measure out 10-7/8 inches and that distance is not too far for your lift gate to still work you should be good. My contact did say that most...

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch from 1990 Ford F-350 Fit 1997 Ford F-150

If you can verify which Draw-Tite trailer hitch part number you have you can either filter through the linked fitguide for a '97 F-150 or let me know and I can check it out so we can see if it is compatible or if you need to purchase a new trailer hitch.

Instead, for an option that will fit that depth you will need a different portable inflator from Bulldog Winch: -Bulldog Winch Portable Air Compressor # BDW41004 This compressor measures 6-3/8 inches from front to back, is 4-3/4 inches tall, and measures 8-3/4 inches wide.

  • Recommended Air Compressor for Class A Motorhome Tires
    I have another option for you, but I do not recommend the Bulldog Winch Portable Air Compressor # BDW41004 for the tires on your class A motorhome. The Bulldog Winch Portable Air Compressor # BDW41004 has a 10 minute duty cycle and then it will shut off. With you likely having larger tires you would want to go with a bigger compressor like the Bulldog Winch Compressor # BDW41000 which is designed for larger tires and has a longer duty cycle than the 10 minutes the # BDW41004 has.

    I have a solution for your 2007 Ford F-150 STX as long as it didn't come with a factory hitch, but the # 41004 is for much older trucks and would not be it. The Curt hitch part # C13365 would be a fit and work well on your truck. If you check out the install video I attached you can see on the truck quarter panel that it is an STX model as well.

  • Should Larger Tires and Wheels be Used to Go Camping on the Beach with a Trailer
    Ultimately you want the most surface area on sand so if you have the means to upgrade your tire/wheel size then go for it! What you need to do prior to purchasing new tires/wheels is to go out and check on your current set to see what kind of clearances you have. You want to have at least 4" of clearance above your tires (for suspension travel) and then at least 2" of clearance between the sidewall of your tires and your trailer frame. With all of that being said, the largest tire you'd...
