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.

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

Easy to install, all holes lined up well. Works great, solid. Only two downs: sticks out a bit from the bumper and I hit my legs a few times before getting used to it, and the paint seems it won't last that long here in New Hampshire. Still highly recommended. 734720

I order a trailer hitch receiver for my 2009 Jeep Liberty plus a swagman bicycle rack on June 12 and they arrived before noon on June 14. In my opinion you can’t ask for better service than what etrailer provides. Any time I need something and etrailer has the product they will be my go to for what ever it is. Everyone at etrailer have a great day and thank you. 658371

I’ve now owned this hitch for an entire year and I am extremely pleased with it. The instructions for the installation made it very easy to install. It fit my 2010 Jeep Liberty perfectly and I haven’t had any problems with it. It has made towing my camper across the country easier than I expected. I would recommend this hitch to anyone considering it. 818586

It sounds like the weld nuts under your Liberty were a little dirty. This is common when installing a hitch on a vehicle that is a little bit older - the undersides of our vehicles pick up a lot of grime! Ive attached a help article with some tips & tricks for cleaning weld nuts to help with trailer hitch installation.

The Draw-Tite hitch was exactly as described. The quality of finish is exceptional and installation easy. Just one note an installing it on a 2012 Jeep Liberty. If your Jeep came with a factory installed tow hook on the back both the tow hook and mounting bracket for the tow hook must be removed and remain off. This is not a big deal since I believe the hitch is sturdy enough to be used as an attachment point instead of the tow hook. 675080

Installed on a 2008 jeep liberty, had to buy a 12m x 1.75 mm tap to clean out the threads from rust. After that installation was ok, I am questioning the torque settings, which seemed very high and was worried about snapping the bolts. The two yellow connectors are heat shrink but directions don't tell you that. My only issue was the black wire to the battery is 12 gauge and the wire off the connector was 14 so supplied connectors were for 12 gauge. The hitch is solidly built and glad I got it done. I recommend this product and etrailer 674482

Great hitch with very fast service. As for instillation, this was for a 2010 Jeep Liberty. I live in a area where the local municipality salts the roads when we have a heavy frost. Needless to say, operating in salt water all winter makes rust is a problem. For anyone putting the unit on their vehicle you need a 12mm tap to clean out all the rusted threads before trying to install your new hitch. After that it goes on like a dream. 665675

Product arrived in expected time frame.Directions were straight forward,took approx 1hr-1.25 to complete hitch install and wiring.Biggest thing is to take the time to run a tap into the holes your going to use .*(makes the process go so much smoother.) wiring pretty much plug and play.** A little expensive but well worth it. 660710

  • Installation of the Draw-Tite Hitch 75578 on a 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport
    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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2008 Jeep Liberty with Full-Size Spare Tire
    If the spare tire on your 2008 Jeep Liberty is a factory spare tire (or a factory tire size at least) then there are hitches that will fit it. 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. Curt also recommends the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for non-trailer loads (such as bike racks and cargo carriers) for...

  • How Far Past Bumper is Draw-Tite And Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers on 2011 Jeep Liberty

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. The pin hole is 2-1/2 inches from the end of the receiver tube per my measurement. So when we combine...

    Yes, the Draw-Tite hitch # 75578 is rated for weight distribution. I've also linked an install video for you. If you also need trailer wiring I recommend the Tekonsha harness, part # 118554. Since you're asking about weight distribution it's fair to believe the trailer you're towing also has brakes so you need a 7-way and brake controller as well.
