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

At etrailer.com 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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Toyota Tacoma - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Toyota Tacoma, we're going to be installing the Draw-Tite Max Frame Trailer Hitch, part number 75238. This Class III trailer hitch is going to be great for all of your hauling needs. It's going to work with ball mounts, trailers, bike racks and cargo carriers. It's got a 2 inch receiver, with a reinforced collar for extra durability. It has a 5/8 inch hitch pin hole, and the smaller hole, to the front, is for using a J pin. This can help reduce rattle on your devices when installed.

It has a loop style safety chain connection point with a large center. This will work with various size safety chains.Fully installed, it's going to tuck up nicely underneath your bumper. You're only really going to be able to see the receiving tube and safety chain connection point, so it won't detract from the look of the vehicle. It has a 1.050 pound tongue weight, which is the force downward on your receiving tube, and a 7,000 pound gross trailer capacity, which is its maximum hauling capacity. When using the weight distribution system, the tongue weight increases to 1,200 pounds, and the gross trailer weight increases to 8,000 pounds.To help you in deciding which accessories to use, such as ball mounts, bike racks and cargo carriers, I've got some measurements here.

From the center of the hitch pin to the edge of the rear bumper, it's going to be about 3 inches, and from the top inside edge of the receiving tube to the ground, it's going to be about 19 1/2 inches.Before we install our hitch, we want to do a little preparation on our vehicle. There's 4 weld nuts on your frame, 2 on each side. We're going to clean those out, so that way we don't have any galling or binding when we're putting our bolts in. Use some spray lubricant on the weld nuts, and then you can use a bristled brush. One like this can be found at etrailer.com with part number 814092.

Repeat this on the other side.With the weld nuts clean, now we can feed our coiled wire into the bumper tube. The center hole will have 2 holes, just on the outside of it, those are the holes we're going to be using. Go ahead and put the coiled end in first, and slide it to the edge of the bumper tube. Now that we've got it threaded through, slide on your spacer, and thread you your carriage bolt. Now we can feed that back through, and pull it down through the hole.

You're going to repeat this same process on the hole on the opposite side of your center hole.Now with an extra pair of hands, we're going to put our hitch into place. We need to put our fish wire down through the holes near our receiver, and we can lift it up. Once you've got your hitch put up in place, you'll take your bolt, and larger conical tooth washer, with the teeth facing up, and thread bolt in. Once you've got a bolt threaded in on each side, the hitch will hold itself up.Now, with it supported, you can get your other bolts into your weld nuts. After you get those in, we'll tighten them down to make it easier to install the nuts on our carriage bolts. Now we can go back and tighten up our hardware, using an 18 millimeter socket. Now we can thread off our coiled wire, put up your smaller, conical tooth washer with the teeth facing up, and thread on your nut. Do this for both bolts. Now we go back and tighten down your carriage bolts using an 18 millimeter socket. With everything snugged up, go back and torque all of your hardware to the specifications in your instructions.That completes our installation of the Draw-Tite Max Frame Trailer Hitch, on our 2017 Toyota Tacoma.

Very happy with this Draw Tite product and service from etrailer. They had the best price and shipped the same day. Got the class 3 hitch for my new 2017 Tacoma and it fits perfect and looks great. No complaints. 330435

Product quality is excellent, exactly as described. What I like about etrailer's website is the inclusion of customer reviews and especially the videos to assist in installation. I have purchased many products over the years from etrailer and I'm very happy. If you need expert help you can call and the response is quick, accurate and friendly. Sorry, I have no photos! This Company was operating before [site] grabbed such a large market share and really set the bar high for web based purchasing. We all need to support these "smaller" Company's that deliver an excellent product or we will be left without any choices in the future. jim f 362826

I have installed 4 aftermarket trailer hitches from Curt to Draw Tite on 4 different Toyota Tacoma/4 Runners. This by far was the easiest install of them all. I installed this Hidden Hitch on my 2017 Toyota Tacoma SR 4x4 in probably 10 minutes. It took longer for me to get the tools out than to perform the actual install. The only unusual part were these long wires that helped you slip two bolts through a metal channel. Unlike older Tacomas you do not have to uninstall the 4 main bolts rather they are already unoccupied. The Draw Tite Receiver was not overly heavy and looks great on the back of my white Tacoma. The hitch itself arrived in large box with the hitch inside taped with all the hardware and instructions. If you are like me and bought the SR Tacoma this is a must have item for your truck! 524424

I was so excited when the package arrived and couldn't wait to install it on my truck. Product was exactly like the photo when I made the purchase. Installation was realitivley easy. Bolts attached directly to the frame on the underside of my 2016 Tacoma. I wanted to add the trailer hitch to my truck for the purpose of attaching my bike rack that inserts into the hitch and has the ability to carry 2 bikes. Before the hitch I would toss my bikes into the back of the bed of my truck. I would most certainly recommend this product to anyone who's considering purchasing a trailer hitch. The price was the best that I could find. Thanks Steve B. 237648

My experience with Etrailer worked out perfectly. Etrailer had the best price for the right part, and delivered it amazingly fast. They have become my first stop for anything that I need. Making my two wheel drive 2016 Toyota Tacoma into a "flat towable" vehicle behind our motorhome required many specialized quality made parts. Many of those parts came from etrailer. I was pleasantly surprised to see their parts show up incredibly fast, with the "item shipped" notice email hitting my computer within hours of placing the order. My advice to you, don't hesitate to place your order with etrailer. Rodney Ventura, California 342292

I needed a receiver hitch for my 2016 Tacoma SR 2.5L. One was not available from the factory for this model so this was the next best choice. I actually went to etrailer before I ordered the truck to make sure one was available for it before committing to purchasing. Even though Toyota had just came out with the redesigned Tacoma, etrailer already had videos on their website discussing the receiver hitches and trailer wiring available for it. This was very helpful. When I finally got around to ordering the hitch it was shipped promptly and arrived quickly. The Draw-Tite hitch installed without issues. Fishing wires were included to help with the two hard to reach bolts. Overall it's about a 30 minute job. Note: a tap (M12x1.25) might be needed to clean the threads on the frame attachment locations but it wasn't an issue with mine. 512300

I received the product on the day it was said to arrive, the box itself was in pretty rough shape. However the product seemed undamaged, the trailer hitch was quick and easy to install even with just one person installing it. I will be using this new hitch to tow my new boat here pretty soon so I am excited to try it out! I couldn't be happier about finding etrailer.com, Nicholas C helped me through the process of making sure I got what I needed and that it works with my 2017 Toyota Tacoma. And it did so thank you ! 563797

I received my tow receiver today and add a day earlier than expected (outstanding). The packaging had a few large holes however no real damage to report. I unpacked it, looked at the instruction provided and just under 20 minutes I had it installed. Recommend a floor jack to lift it if your by yourself. Looks great on the 2017 Toyota Tacoma. 477781

Very happy with my purchase! I ordered my Tacoma (as with many of my previous vehicles) as a base package deciding to install what I needed myself instead of paying for a lot of options I don't use just to get one or two I want. I am comfortable doing these types of installations, and of the items I've added to my vehicles throughout the years, this was one of if not the easiest. The hitch was very well made. ALL THE PIECES were there which I can't say for some on my projects! Everything fit and all holes matched perfectly. The actual hitch took about 10 minutes and the threaded cable they include to fish the bolts down the tube worked perfectly. I saved about $400 from the dealer doing the installation and about $300 from a local shop. Well worth 45-60 minutes of my time on a weekend. 513267

2017 Tacoma, Great customer service, fast free shipping, good price, bolt pulling wires were great, my hitch was half of a bolt hole off when i tried to install with all of the mounting bolts loose, contacted etrailer, they said common occurrence and sent an email for ways to flex the hitch mounting brackets. Bottle jack and lumber flexed it enough for easy perfect fit. 422818

Both hitch and wiring harness were delivered on time, no problems. Hitch is well constructed for a mass produced item. All items needed for installation are included. It is a 2 man operation as the hitch is 45 lbs. We were very impressed with the on-line video (youtube) for our yr (2016) Tacoma. Was VERY impressed with “threaded” fish-wire included. That part was the easiest. Hardest part for us was lining up and installing the 4 bolts to the frame. Spacing was just a little off and we almost had to remove hitch and enlarge holes on hitch mounting bracket-to-frame. After several attempts, we were able to get all 4 bolts threaded. Wiring harness (flat-4) installation went well, just time consuming as we were in a driveway and didn’t have use of a full size lift. Only suggestion would have had truck-to-trailer plug coming out of Tacoma knockout box on bumper instead of hanging loose under bumper. You do need basic understanding/experience with hand tools and wire splicing/assembly to install both items even with inline videos. Hitch # 75238 Wiring# 118685 474789

The instructions were great. I encourage you to watch the video. Someone else suggested you crazy glue the carriage bolt to the piece of steel -- that doesn't work. If you need to keep them connected I suggest hot gluing them temporarily. The only thing that was a little tricky was starting the nut on the carriage bolt. The carriage bolt was spinning. But if I held the carriage bolt with a needle nose pliers, I could start the nut. Once it was three-quarters threaded, I had no problem finishing the job. Oh and one more trick, hold up one end with a cinder block while starting the bolt on the other side, makes it much easier. Took me 40 minutes to install because I had to go in the house to warm up my hands. My only regret was that it was made in Mexico. Seriously? we don't have welders in America? Make America Great Again! 339168

Good hitch, but recommend having a helping hand installing it as it is fairly heavy. I used a car jack to raise it and support it while I put the bolts in. This hitch is easier to install than the Curt I installed before. Very straightforward installation. It took me an hour to install it, but I took my time. 646693

Honest review here! I ordered this hitch on May 15th. Delivered and I had it on my truck Sunday morning the 19th. So what’s that? 4 days. I called my local install place they wanted to charge 299$ for this hitch and install. Said they had to take bumpers off. That’s a lie. I had this hitch on in 35 minutes. Hardest part was fishing bolts through bumper. And that was pretty easy. Would definitely order from etrailer again! 644051

Quality name brand hitch that has been around for over 50 years. Etrailer's price was very competitive, and their installation video showed exactly how to install it in easy steps. Shipping was quick! Took me about 45 minutes by myself to install- would have been less time with a helper. Excellent in every way. 633576

I've owned this hitch for a little over a year. It is a great quality and value. I installed this on a 2018 Tacoma myself; it was an easy, straightforward installation (this from one who is retired). Buying from etrailer was easy, flawless, and a pleasure. I would buy from them without hesitation and recommend them to others. 625308

Bought this item for installation on a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and did the install myself. Very straightforward, the physical installation took about 20 minutes. (TIP: Watch the Youtube video!) The wiring took an extra 45 minutes because I took my time. I tested the hitch by renting a 6'x12' UHaul trailer and everything worked great. I'm happy with the product and happy with the folks at etrailer.com. 619280

Good looking, well designed product. There are six holes that need to lineup. Perfect fit on all six holes. Installation instructions are clear. I find it odd that you need a metric and a non-metric socket. Hardest part of installation is lifting the part with one hand and starting the bolt with your other hand. 614711

I looked at their website and it was so easy to navigate. I found what I was looking for and placed my order. Within an hour I got a email showing the tracking number and a Thank you for ordering from them. I got the 3 day shipping that I thought was very reasonable. I ordered on a Sunday and today is Tuesday and it was delivered today. The site has videos if needed. The trailer hitch I preferred fit perfect and it took me about 15 mins. To install. I would recommend this place to anyone and I will to my friends. I’m even going to share it on Facebook on my page as well. Very happy 614273

Easy order, fast delivery, excellent video for installation instructions. Installation took maybe 15-20 minutes; that was having help to hold the hitch in place while getting the bolts started. Feeder wires could have been a few inches longer just to make them a little handier, but got them fed through fairly easily. Carriage bolts could have been a hair longer to help get the nuts started. Haven't towed anything yet, but installation is no problem and it tucks away nicely under the truck. 612124

I will be buying from you guys again, I have my eyes on the running boards just can't decide which design to get that would match perfectly with my new rims and tires my husband is getting for me. Once I have my wheels then I will be able to decide which running boards to get from you guys. Thank you. 605855

  • Sounds like you're trying to build your own tow package on your new 2017 Toyota Tacoma. We can certainly help you with that. We'll begin with the hitch receiver. I suggest the Draw-Tite # 75238. It's a Class III, 2 inch hitch with a gross trailer weight of 7,000 pounds and maximum tongue weight of 1,50 pounds. Higher than a lot of Class III hitches.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop.

  • What Type of Wiring Is Needed for Operation of MaxxTow MaxxHaul Square LED Brake Light # MT70429
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Square LED Brake Light # MT70429 that you referenced requires a 4-way trailer wiring connector installed on the vehicle. I believe you have a 2017 Toyota Tacoma which means that to install a 4-way what you need is the part # 118685 which installs by plugging inline with the taillight connectors.

If your truck already had a 4-way connector, or you need both a 4-way and a 7-way, then you would want the # ETBC7 kit. You're also going to need a brake controller. I recommend the Prodigy P3, part # 90195. Once you have the # 22117 installed it'll plug right in. You said...

  • Recommended Parts to Tow a Trailer with a 2018 Toyota Tacoma
  • Rest assured we can get you taken care of. The hitch I recommend for your 2018 Toyota Tacoma is the Draw-Tite, part # 75238.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Towing Small Utility Trailer w/ 2016 Toyota Tacoma
  • I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13264, as it is the most reasonably priced (yet still strong) hitch fit available for your Tacoma. The Draw-Tite # 75238 actually has a higher towing capacity, but since the capacity of the hitches exceed the capacity of your truck, you'll be limited to the 3500 lb towing capacity of your tuck anyway.
