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 - 2000 Nissan Pathfinder

Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 75077 from Draw-Tite on a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder. And this installation will also apply to the Hidden Hitch part number 70609. We are underneath the vehicle now, and I am going to go ahead and point out the mounting location for the trailer hitch. We are on the drivers side, the outboard side of the frame, and you can see there is a factory tow hook here. There is one of these on each side of the vehicle. The hitch is actually going to replace these tow hooks, so if you want to remove them - the bolts - they are holding the tow hook in place, and they need to be removed and come down. And clamped in here is also a fourth weld nut that we are going to use as the mounting location as well. It is toward the rear of the frame you will be able to see it once we get the tow hook removed. As you can also see, the small control box here on the drivers side is going to be in the way of me removing the bolts from the side of the frame and getting the hitch up into place. So we want to lower this down and out of the way as well. There are three bolts holding the box in place - one here on the outboard side, one here at the rear, and one here on the inboard side as well. So we are going to ahead and remove that first, and then remove the tow hooks from both sides of the vehicle.

OK, with those screws out I am going to go ahead and pull the canister down. On most of it I disconnect this side pipe here. This is just an extra exhaust that is just going to allow me to lower the canister. You definitely want to make sure you reconnect that, though, when the installation is complete. And again, now I am going to remove the three bolts per side that are holding the tow hooks in place. I am going to go ahead and lower those out of the way. As you can see here on the drivers side bracket that the wires fitting the tail light assembly are also attached to it. You want to make sure that you get that off as well, and that will allow you to fully lower the tow hook. And as you can see now with the tow hook removed, you can see the fourth mounting location for the hitch, just again toward the rear of the vehicle, way up high here. If you have an older vehicle, with that weld nut being exposed all the time, there is a good chance there is some corrosion built up in there, so it would be a good idea to spray that down with some spray lubricant like a WD-40. And you can clean it out real well with any kind of a wire brush or even a battery post cleaner would work for you anything you can get in there to get that corrosion out. So once you get those cleaned out, you want to go ahead and put the hitch up into position. You want to use the new hardware that comes with the installation kit. I am using a basic battery terminal cleaner to just get in there and scrub the corrosion.

OK, with all eight bolts loosely installed into the side of the hitch, we are going to go ahead and tighten them down now. I am going to go through and kind of snug them up with the air gun, and then we are going to go back and torque them down to their specified torque rating. And with those tightened down, I am going to go back through and torque each bolt down to its specified torque rating. You need to check your instructions to find the particular torque rating for each individual bolt. We want to make sure that we put our canister back up into place as well. And again, we want to make sure that we reconnect the exhaust pipe that we had removed earlier. With us having to remove this clip from the wire here, I am going to go ahead and zip-tie it into this other wire bundle right next to it so that it is not hanging loose. And then again, the wire harness here that we removed that fastener from the tow hook, I am going to go ahead and zip-tie this to this existing bundle here so that it is not hanging loose. I am going to go ahead and make sure we tighten these evenly. And with the canister back up into position, our installation is complete. The tow hooks will remain off the vehicle while the hitch is in place. You might want to save those in case you do remove the hitch, you can put the tow hooks back up into position. And this will conclude the installation of hitch part number 75077 on a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder.

This hitch was very easy to install. The self help YouTube Videos were excellent and easy to follow. My son and I easily installed the hitch after viewing the video. 82331

Trailer hitch was very easy to install. It took less than the 40 minutes estimated and required only basic tools (minus a torque wrench borrowed from autozone). I have never installed trailer wiring before but the instructions provided were both specific to my model vehicle and very detailed. In all the complete installation took me, a novice, one hour. Very satisfied! 79185

The hitch is awesome but there was some scuffing to my hitch due to packaging issues. The hitch is just put in a box without any means of protecting it and since it is heavy with sharp angles the box it trashed because it get tossed around. I would have given it 5 stars but the packaging needs much improvement. I will have to spend time touching it up and making sure it won't rust at the parts that were hit. 373380

This is the completed installation of the trailer hitch receiver on my Nissan Pathfinder 1999. It took me about two hours to completed the installation on both, trailer hitch and the wiring harness. All this thanks to the generosity of yours videos that make easy the installation. Thanks again! Happy client, J. Jorge 407396

Box it was shipped in could of been slightly bigger to accomodate size of hitch. Also could of put some type of protection covering the mounting plates as they were poking out the sides of the box and the paint was chipped off. Covered it with black high temp paint. Hence the 4 stars. Would give a 5 srar, but I need to be honest with the rating. Other than that, installation was a breeze. Didnt have any help, but do highly recommend it. Took me about 2 hours to install only cause I was having issues pushing it up into place, kept getting stuck. Once I finally got clear with a few good whacks with my 2lb rubber deadblow hammer, bolting was easy and torquing was a breeze. 637092

It is easy to attach the type of bike rack that keeps bikes away from the truck, so the wheels don't damage the truck when you hit a bump. The hitch seems very strong. I plan to use it for towing a boat. Very happy with my purchase! 627918

Installation was as easy as expected (not super easy because it is heavy). I was able to install alone in a little over an hour. The hitch held up on a 800 mile trip a couple days later. It has now been a year, I am very happy with how the hitch has held up. 513048

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2007 Ford Ranger
    For your 2007 Ford Ranger, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13019. This hitch is reasonably priced, but still provides a full 4000 lb towing capacity/ 400 lb tongue weight capacity. The Draw-Tite Class III hitch part # 75077 is a fit for the 1997-2003 Infiniti QX4 or the 1996-2004 Nissan Pathfinder. It would unfortunately not be a fit for your 2007 Ranger. If you need a ball mount, I'd recommend the Curt # C45030 and for a trailer ball, part # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch or...

  • Bike Rack Options for Carrying Up to 4 Bikes on 2001 Nissan Pathfinder Without Hitch Receiver
    What will determine the best bike rack option for your 2001 Pathfinder is the number of bikes you need to transport. If only 2 bikes, then a trunk-mount type will be your most cost-effective option. If you need to transport as many as 4 bikes, then a hitch receiver and hitch-mount rack make more sense; with this much of a weight load the hitch-type rack will allow that burden to be carried by the vehicle's frame, which is its strongest part. Trunk-mount racks put the weight burden on parts...
