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 - 2008 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2008 Jeep Liberty, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75578. This is what a hitch will look like once it is installed. Next we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch. The center of the hitch pin hole is even with the outermost edge of the bumper. The top of the receiver tube openingto the ground is 19-1/2 inches. This will assist your selecting accessories such asa ball mount, bike rack, or carrier. Now we'll go ahead with the installation.

We'll first go ahead and point out our attachment points. We'll have a total of 6 attachment points: 3 on each side. These attachment points are weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer. To begin our install we'll first need to clean out any exposed weld nuts, because over time the weld nuts will build up with rust, dust, dirt, and debris. To clean them out we'll use some spray lubricant and a half inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092. Once we've thoroughly cleaned the weld nut out, we can then take one of the new fasteners and thread it into the weld nut to make sure it will go nice and easily. Now that we've got our first weld nut cleaned out we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the other 4: one here on the driver's side and 3 on the passenger side.

Next, we'll need to remove the manufacturer's bolt from the support arm on the driver's side. We'll set the bolt aside as it will not be reinstalled. We'll be using the new 12 millimeter bolt and half inch conical tooth washer, teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Now that we're ready to put the hitch in place, it's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. We'll install each one finger tight until we have them all in place.

Once we have them all in place we'll then go ahead and tighten it down and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. And now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications, we're ready to hit the road. And that does it for the install of our Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75578 on our 2008 Jeep Liberty. .

The folks at etrailer are very frendly, helpfull and knowlegable about their products. The instructions that come with the hitch and wire harness made the install very simple and were easy to follow. Ive never seen faster shipping, made me wonder if the warehouse was around the corner. I was very satisfied with the entire transaction from order to install and would do it again. Thanks Gary 61950

Very impressed with the purchase process & high level of customer service at etrailer.com. Lots of follow up from beginning purchase, shipping status & after the sale concern that I received my order & was happy....And Yes I am. Boxes were little crushed and taped up but prob due to heavy nature of items shipping from MO to NH. I purchased Draw-Tite hitch w/Kuat Beta bike rack. These products are well designed & fit my Jeep Liberty perfectly together. Thank you again, I will recommend etrailer to many. 381985

2008 Jeep liberty, Received product fast, Fit in just the way the video shows, An impact driver should be used but I don't have one. I used hand tools (Breaker bar and socket) I suggest to use a better cleaner than WD40 (That's what I had) Took 2 hrs to clean and chase the threads and 10 Minutes to install. I also bought the wiring (118554), but it was raining and that's another day. Video looks like it covers the bases. 42569

GREAT BUY Overall great buy. One issue with install on a Jeep Liberty you have to remove a factory bolt inorder to install the hitch. The problem is this one bolt is lock sold in there. I had to bring the truck to a service station to have them remove the bolt so I could install the hitch. Other than that the hitch is great. 3409

  • Recommended Hitch and Towing Package for 2012 Jeep Liberty to Transport Little Guy Trailer
  • Great news! I can help outfit your 2012 Jeep Liberty to be able to tow your Little Guy Trailer. First let's start with a trailer hitch for your vehicle. I recommend the Class III Draw-Tite Max Frame # 75578. I have linked an installation video on a similar model to yours for you to check out, the two vehicles are from the same generation so they should look exactly the same. Next, it sounds like your vehicle did not come with the factory 7-way so you will need to install a 4-way like...

  • Recommended Hitch, Trailer Wiring and Brake Controller for 2008 Jeep Liberty
  • If the available hitch alternatives for your Liberty, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13245. All the Class III hitches for you Liberty have the same capacity and would install in the same manner. Because the quality of the Curt hitch is on the same level as the other hitches, you won't sacrifice anything by going with the lower cost Curt hitch. For trailer wiring, I'd recommend the Tow Ready # 118554, which would provide a 4-pole trailer connector. This will provide you...

  • Differences Between Curt # 13245 and Hidden Hitch # 87450 Class III Hitches for 2012 Jeep Liberty
  • The two trailer hitch receivers for your 2012 Jeep Liberty that you referenced, Curt # 13245 and Draw-Tite # 75578, offer identical performance ratings and features. Both are Class III-rated 2-inch receivers with a tongue weight capacity (the downward force on the hitch) of 500-lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight rating of 5000-lbs. Both hitch's towing capacities increase equally when used with a weight distribution system and both are round tube designs that bolt on with included...

  • There are three trailer wiring harnesses that fit the 2011 Jeep Liberty. The Tekonsha # 118554, Curt # C56183, and a Hopkins # HM11142485. All three provide a 4-way connector and install by plugging in behind both tail lights. There is also a hot lead wire that will be run to the battery and a fuse to be installed. Everything for the install is included with each harness. Then the connector will is stowed beneath the Jeep near the trailer hitch. Of the three I recommend the Tekonsha...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Jeep Liberty
  • You may not believe this but even the Class II trailer hitches for a 2011 Jeep Liberty have the face of the receiver extend beyond the rear bumper of the vehicle. Since this is the case, I would go ahead with a Class III. If you are going to have bruised shins, might as well be from a hitch with a higher capacity and more accessory options. For a Class III hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75578. I have included a link to the installation instructions. In the upper left...

I attached an install video and instructions for this product for you to check out. The Draw-Tite Hitch # 75578 that you referenced is also the correct hitch and I attached an install video for this product also.

  • If installed correctly the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness for the 2008 Liberty by Jeep, part # 118554, you should not have to worry about damaging the electronics. This converter only uses the vehicles signal inputs as switches, and the actual power output to the trailer comes directly from the vehicle battery. The converter is designed to only draw 5 mili-amps and is designed to protect your vehicles sensitive circuitry. I've included installation directions in a link below. We offer...

  • Good news, I can help you figure out how the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75578 will mount on your 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport. You are correct, if the hitch has to protrude then the more economically priced Curt hitch # 13245 will be a good solution for your Liberty. I've attached some image of the Draw-Tite Hitch mounted on the 2012 Jeep Liberty for you to take a look at. The hitch does stick out from underneath the vehicle quite a bit, unlike the one on your Grand Cherokee. While it isn't very...

  • We have everything that you will need to add a bike rack to your 2008 Jeep Liberty. The first decision that you will need to make is if you want a trunk mounted bike rack or a hitch mounted bike rack. A trunk mounted bike rack like the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9001PRO, will attach to your vehicle using 4 retractable cables that attach to the top and bottom edges of your rear hatch and it has rubber pads that sit on your rear hatch to support the rack.

  • Bolt Size Used to Install the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75578

  • Is A Trailer Hitch Available For 2011 Jeep Liberty That Only Receiver Is Visible
  • All of the trailer hitches we offer for your 2011 Liberty have the receiver located in the middle of the crossmember of the hitch. Some hitches actually have the receiver welded to the bottom of the crossmember and that does hide a lot of the hitch but not the receiver as you mentioned. The trailer hitch I recommend for your Liberty is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75578. This is a Class lll trailer hitch with a 2-inch receiver opening. If you plan on doing some...

  • Will the Rage Trailer Hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier Fit a 2008 Jeep Liberty
  • There are a couple of things to consider to determine if the Rage motorcycle carrier, # MX600, will work on your 2008 Jeep Liberty. First the Liberty needs to have a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. If it does not, you can add one using # 75578. I have included a link to the instructions and a link to a video showing installation for you. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds. This means that the combined weight of the motorcycle and carrier (the carrier...

  • There is a similar trailer hitch that will fit your 2005 Jeep Liberty, but the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75578, will only fit 2008 to 2011 Jeep Liberty models. The comparable trailer hitch from Draw-Tite for your 2005 model is # 75128. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you to view. If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # EBMK2EL. It includes a ball mount, interchangeable ball...

  • Can Trailer Hitch Be Moved From 2008 Jeep Liberty to 2010 Model
  • The 2008 and the 2010 Jeep Liberty are of the second generation, so the hitch from your 2008 will fit the 2010 model. Keep in mind that the installation hardware is meant to only be used once, so to install the hitch on your 2010 Liberty, you'll want all new hardware. We offer replacement hitch installation hardware as part # RHK.

We've installed the Draw-Tite # 75578 on a 2008 Jeep Liberty and the Curt # 13245 on a 2011. The hitch pin hole of the Draw-Tite on the 2008 lines up perfectly even with the bumper's edge as shown in the video.

Curt hitch # 13245 is a great option and several customers have indicated that it fits with the larger full-size spare tire. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

If someone saw either hitch on your vehicle and didn't happen to see a sticker or brand label they wouldn't be able to identify the brand just from the appearance. That being said there are some subtle dimension changes between the brands. For example the...
