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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 1999 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup - Draw-Tite

Today on this 1999 Chevrolet CK Series pickup, we're going to install part number 41528. Now this is what the hitch looks like once it's installed on the truck. Next, we go ahead and give you some measurements to help you in selecting some accessories, such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack, or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about 4-1/2". From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 19-1/4". Now I'll go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

First off, we'll go ahead and locate where the hitch mounts up on the frame. There will be three existing holes. There will be one threaded hole that's closest to the bumper, and then another hole behind it, and one further up, this large round hole. Next, we'll go ahead and remove the bolt at the very end of the frame, because that's one of the attachment points for the hitch. And then we can go ahead and start installing hardware inside the frame.

We're going to start with the hardware for the hole in the middle. We're going to use our spacer block and our carriage bolt. Now our block we're going to use for our center attachment is going to be the one with the offset hole in the middle. We'll go ahead and put it into the frame on both sides, and then we'll go ahead and lift the hitch up into position. Now you definitely want an extra set of hands to help hold the hitch up while I push the hitch up to the frame and run the bolt through the hitch.

Then on the bottom side, we'll install a conical-tooth washer and nut. When you install the conical-tooth washer, you want to make sure that the teeth are facing towards the hitch. Now I'll loosely install this hardware on both sides. Now we'll go up to the threaded hole towards the bumper and install new hardware. We'll have a new bolt with a conical-tooth washer.

We'll thread that in and get it started. Once again, we'll do this on both sides. All right, now we'll go ahead and install the fasteners going towards the front of the vehicle. We'll install the carriage bolt and the block. This block will be the one with the hold in the center of it. This bolt and block will actually go through the frame, through another block, through the hitch, and then we'll install a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. Okay, with all our hardware loosely installed, we can go ahead and tighten down all the bolts, and then we'll torque them down as specified in the instructions. With that, that will finish it for our install of part number 41528 from Draw-Tite on our 1999 Chevrolet CK Series pickup.

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1989 Chevy K3500 with 10 Inch Deep Drop Bumper
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 41528 does indeed fit your 1989 Chevy K3500 truck with deep drop bumper. It is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight when not using weight distribution. If you want a hitch that has a little more wiggle room in terms of capacity you can use # C15317 which is rated for 16,000 pounds when not using weight distribution. Be sure to check the capacity of your truck and go by whichever has the lower capacity; the hitch or the truck. If you go with hitch #...

  • Recommended Hitch for 1999 Chevy C3500 Dually Compatible with Roll Pan Bumper
  • We do offer hitches for your lowered 1999 Chevy C3500 dually that can be seen on the linked page. These include Class III, IV and V hitches, both 2-inch and 2-1/2-inch sizes. I'd recommend, Draw-Tite Hitch # 41528. It is a Class III hitch that will fit on trucks with a 10-inch deep-drop style bumper. There are currently no options for the roll pan bumper style, so some modifications will be necessary. The written installation instructions are linked for you along with a helpful article...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1996 Chevy K1500 with Roll Pan Bumper Installed
  • What you will want to do is look at the hitches available for the 1996 Chevy K1500 with 10 inch deep drop bumper. These hitches come down lower and could work for you. Curt hitch # C15317 has the highest capacity of the options at 2,400 pounds tongue weight capacity and 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight capacity. But it measures 7-1/4 inches from the bottom of the frame to the top of the receiver. Check your truck to see if your could get away with 7-1/4 inches. If it will not work...

  • Availability of Hitch for 1993 Chevy C/K 3500 Pickup w/ Roll Pan Bumper
  • We do indeed offer hitches that are compatible with a 1993 Chevy C/K Series with a roll pan bumper. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # 41522. This hitch is compatible UNLESS your truck has the heavy duty-suspension or is a 4 door crew cab. You'll need to cut a hole in the roll pan behind the license plate for the receiver to pass through the roll pan. A fold-down license plate holder like part # 8802 would make for a neat installation.

  • Will the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41528 Fit a 1989 Chevy K1500 with Step Bumper
  • The Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41528 is compatible with a 1989 Chevy K1500 that has the 10 inch Deep Drop Bumper, but not your K1500 that has the Factory Step Bumper. For your K1500 with the Factory Step Bumper I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41001 which is also a Class III 2 inch hitch receiver with the same weight weight ratings that the part # 41528 has. There will be some drilling that is required as well as some repositioning...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1993 Chevy C/K Series Crew Cab Dually 4x4 with Roll Pan Bumper
  • We actually have a few hitches that are specifically designed to fit models that have the roll pan bumper, but # 41528 is not one of them so it will not fit. However, all of the hitches for roll pan bumper models do require that the bumper be cut in the license plate area for the receiver. A model with a drop to go beneath the bumper is not available. A hitch designed for models that do not have a roll pan bumper, like # 41528, will not be able to install because the roll pan bumper...

  • What is the Towing Capacity for a 1992 GMC K1500 SLX
  • According to an old GM document I have the towing capacity of a 1992 GMC K1500 is as follows: Regular Cab or Extended Cab, any bed style, with a 4.3 liter the capacity is 5,000 pounds. With the 5.0 liter motor capacity is 6,500 pounds. With the 5.7 liter it is 7,000 pounds. And with the 6.2 liter is goes down to 5,500 pounds. You can also check for a sticker in the driver's side door jamb. It should list the gross vehicle weight rating and the gross combined vehicle weight rating....

  • I will be happy to help you out. The first thing you are going to need is a trailer hitch for your 1995 Chevy 2500. If your truck has the standard or step bumper then the most popular option is Curt hitch # C14081. If it has the factory roll pan bumper then the most popular option is # 41522.
