Fully welded vehicle trailer hitch is strong and durable. Draw-Tite's Tested Tough guarantee ensures that this hitch exceeds industry standards. The combination of an e-coat base and a powder coat finish provides excellent rust protection.
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.
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.

Today on our 2008 Chrysler Pacifica Im installing the Draw-Tite two-inch receiver tube hitch part number 75522. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next is going to be a couple measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 3-1/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 11-1/2 inches. This will assist your selecting accessories such a ball 00:00:25 mount, bike rack or cargo carrier.Now well go ahead with installation.
Now we can go ahead and point out the attachment points. Well have a total of four attachment points on each side, two in the bottom of the frame and two in the side of the frame. Three of these attachment points are either pre-drilled or cutout holes in the frame by the manufacturer. The fourth attachment point for each side will be the well nut that we will remove one of the manufacturers bolts from.First weve gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire for the ease of installation. Next, well begin by lowering the exhaust.
Well put a safety strap underneath to help support the weight. To lower exhaust, well remove the two rubber isolators from the back of the muffler that secure it to the metal hangers. To remove the rubber isolator from the metal hanger, well spray each one with some spray lubricant and just use our pry bar to pry the rubber isolator off the metal hanger.Now that weve removed the rubber isolator from the metal hanger, we can use the safety strap to safely lower the weight of the exhaust out of the way to gain access to the frame rail here on the passenger side. Lets go ahead and remove the bolt now. Well set that bolt aside as it will not be reused.
Well use the new hardware provided with our install kit.Next well go and install the half-inch carriage bolt and block. This will be the forward attachment point in the bottom of the frame. Taking our pull wire, going through the attachment point and out the access hole, well then slide on the block and thread on a carriage bolt. Well feed the block and bolt into the frame and then pull them into position. Once in place, well go ahead and remove the half-inch bolt leader.Now were ready to go ahead and prepare our hitch for installation.
Being sandwiched between the hitch and the frame at the half-inch carriage bolt will be a half-inch ply washer. To make it easier to install the hitch and the flat washer, well go ahead and tape the flat washer directly to the hitch. With that done, were ready to go ahead and put our hitch in place. Its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install your fasteners.As we put the hitch up into position, we install the new 12 mm bolt with a half-inch conical tooth washer, the teeth of the washer facing the hitch, into the manufactures well nut that we removed the manufactures bolt from. Then once we have that supporting the weight of the hitch, we can go ahead and install our conical tooth washer and half-inch nut for our half-inch carriage bolt.Next, well install the hardware into the side of the frame. Using our half-inch bolt leader, well go through the attachment point and out the access hole in the bottom of the frame. There we can slide on the block and thread on the carriage bolt. Feed the block and bolt into the frame and then pull them into position. Once in place, well remove the bolt leader and install the half-inch split lock washer and half-inch nut.Well go ahead and repeat the same process for our fourth and final attachment point. Keep in mind each process we do on one side well repeat identically on the opposite side. Now with all the hardware in place, we can go ahead and tighten it down. Next well torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications, were ready to reinstall the exhaust. With our exhaust reinstalled, we can ahead and remove the safety strap. inaudible 00:04:37 install the Draw-Tite hitch, part number 75522 on a 2008 Chrysler Pacifica. .

I'm not that mechanically inclined when it comes to vehicles and when I called around to get quotes for a hitch the cheapest was $425 for parts and labor. Then I came across etrailer.com. They made me feel confident I could do this myself for a fraction of the cost. Cheaper price for the parts too. The video online was spot on and took me step by step to putting my hitch on and it was SO AMAZINGLY EASY!!! The video doesn't miss a thing. My new hitch looks and works great and is very well crafted. etrailer.com is a top notch company. Already recommended it to my whole family! 35256

The videos on the etrailer.com web site were instrumental, though I had to watch them several times as the video progressed from step to step quickly. I worked on my back with the rear of the car elevated on metal ramps. While I supported the exhaust pipes, they did not fall as warned on the video. In fact, the free hanging mufflers did not drop enough to slide the hitch into place on the frame. I had to hand pull one muffler down so the hitch would slide over it. I had my wife assist with positioning the hitch into position, but everything else I did myself. When moving the hitch into position on the frame, I put a nut on one of the half-inch bolts so that it did not get knocked into the frame while I focused on the other side. In the end it came out perfect. I'm very happy with the result and with the satisfaction of doing the installation myself. 20140

Very easy installation, everything I needed was in the kit. I watched the installation video before I got started and I have to say I was a bit sceptical about the fish wire. I was pleasantly surpirised, it worked perfectly. I took my I-pad out to the car and did the installation step by step with the video. The video was very descriptive and the installation went smoothly. The hardest part was removing the muffler isolators. I used the wiring harness video for installation of the wiring and again used the I-pad to go step by step with the video. Great product, it looks very well built. I don't expect to have any problems with it. 74252

Great Product and easy installation. Loved how there was the install video to reference. Would recommend to anyone. 128003
The instructions and video over simplified the removal of the exhaust hanger, and the instruction sheet was not clear on where the different types of flat washers were to go. Would it be possible to add one more sheet of paper so that blown up views of the assembly could be shown? 1 extra sheet of paper would equal a whole lot less frustration. The video is good but not all of us have handy internet connections in our garages! Install time with the rework due to unclear directions 1 hr 45 min. The product itself seems great! 39596

Grab a six pack!! Get a lot of beer and about 4 hours time. I didn't have a lift so take that into consideration... But you half to remove the muffler first - just remove the two bolts. Second issue, is the hitch itself is very bulky to handle under the car. Fishing the bolts through is not hard but difficult at times. The attachments are almost all bolts and flat washers...like I said "Beer"!! End product is awesome and everything came like promised - service is excellent. Thank you eTrailer!! 1285
etrailer.com is a very valuable service and if it isn't already, I'm sure it will become a wildly successful company. They have everything you could possibly need in the way of towing etc., their prices are literally hundreds below my local hitch store, shipping is fast and cheap, great installation videos, the people are friendly on the phone and make sure your needs are taken care of. Textbook operation. And, no they didn't pay me to say any of this. -God Bless. 19612

Rating would have been Excellent if it weren't for a problem with the mounting hardware. The four of the six 3" long carriage bolt brackets did not have the proper size square hole in them and needed modification before the carriage bolt would fit. Secondly, the fishwire works wonderfully. I suggest a 2nd wire be included as those who don't use it as often as those in your videos are a bit more rough on it. 203382

This item installed exactly are instructed. However what made this product rate as excellent is the installation video. As I was under my vehicle with my ipad doing the install I was greatfull for the video. Also the little spring wire tool is a god send. I am telling all my truck buddies about ETrailer.com. I would send a photo but it looks exactly like the photos already on the site. A PERFECT FIT. 45558

Everything was shipped- hitch fitup was great- unfortunately 5 of the 6 blocks had square openings which did not fit the carriage bolt. Bolts would not sit inside the block. Added 2 hours to the installation. Too bad- everything else worked great- but the blocks had to be modified. Also, some explanation of which direction the conical washed is assembled would help too. 124503

This is definitely a DIY project!! Ordered the hitch and wiring packet from eTrailer. Received it in 3 days (Indiana)! Video and instructions were easy and accurate for our Chrysler Pacifica. I found it necessary to thoroughly clean the mounting hole prior to inserting the fish wire and bolts. Excellent product. ! Great company! Will definitely use again! 149838

Very Happy with the hitch and the install,it went just like the video, the only problem I had was with the feed wire, the first bolt went o.k. until I tried to remove the feed wire, it would not come off the bolt and when It did, it was stretch out and made the install of the other bolt's a little harder.other then that I'm happy with the hitch. 108211

I don't believe that I could ever bought a better hitch for my vehicle, it fets perfect and I installed my self with no problems at all. it's very well built and looks great. When I pull my boat I know there will be know problems at all, every body loves the way it looks and fits so nice, thank you for building one great hitch that I can trust. 211963
The Receiver was exactly like the video showed. No problems installing. I could tell while installing that there was a lot of thought and engineering that went into developing this receiver. It arrived in about half the time it was suppose to. Everything was there. The cost was great!! I would recommend to anyone at anytime. Great experience!! 41935

Very nicely designed hitch, and it fit perfectly on my 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. Your installation video was well done and helped me very much to install the hitch. I am 85 1/2 years old and I put the hitch on in the Patio of our Winter home in Alamo, Texas. I may use it to pull my other car home. Thank you very much. Floyd 172559

Installed the sucker today in about 25 minutes at the gas station, and that was only because we had to stop and rewatch the etrailer video on my model of car. Follow the instructions, and its easy as pie. Box was a little dinged up on arrival, but that hardly matters. 175510

Extremely pleased with service. Surprised how quickly you got it to me. Ordered Monday and got it Wednesday. Thought I would already have it installed except ran into a problem with a bolt on the car. Will let you know how the installation goes when complete. 38449

Product was as described and a great price. Arrived quickly. Box was beat up but item not damaged. I would order frometrailer.com again. The VIDEOS made ALL the difference! Great website. 75946
Exactly as described. Instructions were good. Video was great. Would have been nice to have two of the wire fishing tools. We stretched the one out and had some issues. 95386

Excellant product. Installed easily just as documented. As far as etrailer itself, great service and delivery cost was incredible, ~$7 vs 100 shipping from Autozone?? 62946

Holes in frame matched perfectly. Eight big bolts to hold a trailer hitch on, and I didn't have to drill any holes is an example of good engineering. 196585

Perfect fit, with good solid construction. Easy to install, but definitely need a helper when mounting to frame. 175438
