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 - 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor

Today we are going to be installing part number 75163 by Draw-Tite on a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor. We are underneath the vehicle now, and we are looking at the drivers side frame rail over here. The mounting location for the hitch on the drivers side is going to be the two weld nuts here at the base of the frame and then the two weld nuts here on the side of the frame, as well. On models that have seen at least one winter, a lot of times there is some corrosion built up in these weld nuts. So it is a good idea to go ahead and lubricate those first with a spray lubricant like WD-40 to kind of loosen up the rust and make it a little easier to get the bolts in there. So I am going to go ahead and do that on both sides of the vehicle.

OK, and then, over here on the passengers side of the vehicle, again I am going to point out the mounting location. You have got two weld nuts here at the bottom of the frame which are kind of hard to see because the exhaust is in the way. And then again there is one here on the side of the frame. The first thing we want to do after again, I have already lubricated the nuts to let them soak a little bit while I go ahead and lower the exhaust, which is what we are going to do next we need to remove the rubber hangers. This one here, and then there is one over inside the wheel well, as well, that we want to go ahead and lower down. I am going to go ahead and do that now. Using a wire brush here to make the cleaning out of the bolts a little bit easier.

OK, looking underneath the vehicle here we are over on the drivers side frame rail as you can see, there are two weld nuts here at the bottom of the frame that we are going to be using as the attaching points. And it is going to be the same on the passengers side, as well. And then there is one on the side of the frame that provides a vertical attachment. And again, that is over on the passengers side as well. OK, on the passengers side frame rail, again we are going to use the two weld nuts at the bottom of the frame and we are actually going to use the weld nut on the vertical on the outboard side of the frame rail here. OK, with the exhaust down out of the way and the weld nuts thoroughly cleaned, we can go ahead and put the hitch up into position. We are going to use the fasteners that were provided with the hitch. We want to go up and over the exhaust on the passengers side. It might help to have a second set of hands while doing this. You definitely want to make sure you avoid the lines on the compressor on the drivers side. Make sure you do not pinch those.

OK, now that we have got the hitch up into place, we want to go ahead and hand tighten the bolts down. OK, now that we have got the bolts hand tightened up into place, we want to go ahead and torque the bolts down. And the torque rating for these bolts all of them is going to be 53 foot-pounds. Now that we have got the hitch done and torqued up into position, we want to go ahead and put the exhaust back up into place. In order to do so, we need to add this little bracket to the rubber hanger here, which is going to help lower the exhaust down, so it does not hit on the hitch itself. We are going to put that up into place using the existing hardware that we took down earlier. In order to do so, we need to take the existing bolt that we removed earlier, add the two washers that were provided with the kit on it we want to slide that through toward the inboard side of the vehicle. We want to put the bracket on after that and then tighten it down with one of the nuts that were provided, as well. Then we want to go ahead and tighten that down.

And then we want to take the bolt, lock washer and regular washer and slide it through the bottom of the bracket into the weld nut on the exhaust. We want to go ahead and tighten those down. You do want to add a second nut, as well, onto that top bolt to act as a jam nut so that the nut does not release. Now that we have got our front hanger connected we want to make sure we connect our rear hanger as well, which I already have done here. And with the exhaust back up into place, the installation is complete. and this will conclude our installation of part number 75163 on a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor
    The connector on the # 118516 T-One connector would indeed plug into the trailer connector plug located in the cargo area, under the carpet next to the drivers side wheel well as shown in the photo. Just to be sure, I contacted our representative at Tow Ready, who assured me that the # 118516 trailer wiring harness is compatible with all models of the 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor. If you don't yet have a hitch, I'd recommend either the Curt Class III # 13569 or the Draw-Tite # 75163. Both...

  • Wiring Harness and Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor
    We have a wiring harness available for your vehicle, but the hitch part # 75163 that you referenced does not include a trailer wiring harness. For that you would want the part # 118516.
