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.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Dodge Journey

Today on our 2016 Dodge Journey we will be installing the Draw-tite Max Frame Class III trailer hitch receiver, part number 75648. Here is what our hitch looks like installed. As you can see, it tucks up nicely underneath our vehicle, doesn't hang down an excessive amount. We have plenty of room around our spare tire here to lower it down without having to get a weird angle to when we put it back up. It is a nice feature. Some other ones sit above it a little bit, this one doesn't. This hitch has a nice gloss black powder coat finish that blends in nicely with our vehicle. It looks like it was there from the factory.

We have our industry standard class III 2 x 2 inch receiver opening here with a nice collar welded on the outside edge of it to give it a nice finished look and to give it some extra reinforcement for strength. We have our standard 5/8 inch hitch pin hole here. To the rear of that we have a J-pin stabilization device hole to take some of that annoying shake, play, and rattle out of the device that is inserted in the receiver. If you want to use a J-pin stabilization device, we have those for sell separately on our web site. We have our nice, round tubular safety chain loops right here below the receiver. They are easy to gain access to and they are a decent size so you shouldn't have any problems hooking up most safety chains to them. Off to the left here toward the driver's side, we have this bracket that is welded onto the frame of the hitch which we can use to secure any wiring that we may have such as a four-pole flat or a seven way RV connector tube to hook up our lighting for our trailer onto it. This hitch has a 400 pound max gross tongue weight rating and a 4,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating. It does support the use of weight distribution, but those numbers stay the same.

They do not increase at all. Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you might need such as a ball mount bike rack or cargo carrier. You are looking at about three inches from the center of the pitch pin hole to the rear most point on the back bumper. You are also looking about 15 inches from the ground to the top of the two inch receiver opening on the hitch. Installation All right, we are fortunate. We do not need to lower our spare tire in order to begin our installation, but we do need to lower our exhaust here. There's two mufflers on either side of the vehicle.

On our passenger side there is a ground strap belt just clipped onto the exhaust hanger. Just grab it, un-clip it, set it out of the way. That done, we need to put a strap in this porter exhaust. We will take a cam buckle strap here, go around the sway bar link on the driver's side, come over to the passenger side, do the same thing. Make sure our strap has a little bit of slack in it to catch our exhaust. We have two exhaust hangers on both mufflers. Spray some lubricant on them, help them slide off easier.

Repeat the process on the other muffler. Okay, now that we have of our hangers sprayed with some lubricant, take a pry bar here and work our hangers off our muffler. Okay there is one, got three more to go. Now on our driver's side of our vehicle, there is a wiring harness here that is clipped onto our bumper support. Let's pop this down so it is out of the way. All right, that will give us room to work. Now we have two of these handle nuts. These are going to go into our frame rail for our forward most attaching hole. Put a slight bend in them like this. There is our access hole, slide the handle nut through there til it sits over this hole right here and do the same on the other side. Now I have a fish wire, carriage bolt, and spacer plate. We are on the passenger side right now. This is our access hole and our bumper support beam right here that our carriage bolt is going to come through. We will stick our fish wire through there and it will come out our bumper support right there. We will put our spacer point onto the fish wire, stick it inside the bumper support, thread our carriage bolt on, pull it on down through. We will do the same on the other side. Now for our hitch on the ground, facing the direction it is going to be installed on the vehicle, we will install two of our wedge plates. For our rear access hole here, our wedge plate is thicker on one end and thinner on the other. The thick end will go on the top part right here. Underneath that on the bottom, the thin part will go towards the rear. We are going to tape these in position before I raise the hitch up. That way we don't have to worry about getting it in place while we are trying to install the hitch. We will just wrap it on, make sure they aren't going to fall off. Tuck our tape in, and repeat the same process for the same hole, but on the other side of the hitch. Now we will prep our hardware for the forward mounting bolts that will go into the handle nuts we installed in the frame rail already. We have two hatch bolts, two conical tooth washers. We will place the washer onto the bolt with the teeth facing away from the bolt head, going towards the hitch. Once we have these ready, we can grab a second set of hands and get the hitch into position, and loosely install it with these. We will raise our hitch up over our exhaust, slide our bolts on down to the wedge plates in the bolt hole. There it goes. Okay good. Now we will take our conical tooth washer, again, teeth towards the hitch, and our nut. Do the same on the other side. With all of our hardware started we will tighten them down with a 3/4 inch socket. Repeat the same process on the other side. Now we will torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. The handle nuts do get a lower torque specification than the carriage bolts so make sure you pay attention to that. All right, now that all of our hardware is torqued down to specifications, we can raise our exhaust back up into position. We will make sure we install one hanger at a time on one side. That way the exhaust is level. All right, do the same on the other side. Okay, with all four of our exhaust hangers on, make sure we put our ground strap back on the passenger side. Now we can safely remove our support strap. That completes our installation of the Draw-tite Max Frame Class III trailer hitch receiver, part number 75648, on our 2016 Dodge Journey.

Simply outstanding, professional and thorough service! 177604


Javier hi, I would like to hear your experience regarding the hitch on a 2015 journey crossroad with the chrome bar on the back fender. My journey crossroad has it and I am afraid that it could be damaged by the hitch. Thanks for your comments regarding this matter.Manny.

I am very pleased with the hitch. Along with the hitch, I ordered the ball mount and the wiring harness. Delivery was on point. I was going to have my mechanic install the hitch, but after watching your video a few times, I decided to tackle the job myself. It did take me about three hours to complete the installation. Of course in your video, it's all done with a lift which I didn't have. Followed the video and the installation came out great. Great product and video to referred to when needed. 293786

The product was shipped in 3 days. I had very little trouble with the install because the instructions were very simple. Make sure to get lube for the bands holding the exhaust, the hardest part for me was getting those bands off. The only minor "issue" would be that the instructions included 4 washers and only 2 came with the package. All in all you can not beat the price. I have a friend with a similar vehicle get the same products (Frame Hitch and wiring) installed by a trailer dealer and they were charged $500. My cost was some of my personal time and cost under $200. Would highly recommend and this is coming from a guy who is not all that handy with tools. 80992

Good hitch not to bad to install took me and the wife about 3 hours to install the hitch and wiring for the trailer lights. ETrailer was very fast on shipping I ordered on Thursday and it was here the next day 313785

We order a lot of hitches through Etrailer for the business that we own. The have been amazing! We get great products at fair prices. They always ship super fast and if there is any delay they let us know by phone/email right away and give us other options to get a product quicker. They have a great selection and I most of all love their easy to use guide to how long install usually takes and if it requires drilling. It is a quick reference to choose between all of the options for hitches they have. 276700

Very nice hitch setup for the Journey. Recessed enough to prevent shin knocks when walking around the vehicle. I chose the hitch for this very reason and was happy that it sits under the rear fascia without sticking out. Looks factory. Instructions were well written and install went without issues. I spent more time dealing with unhooking the dual mufflers than bolting this unit up and torquing it down. The product videos closely reflect the work involved in installing one of these. 307619

The hitch was more heavy duty and rugged than I expected. Took about an hour to install. All the hardware was there and everything lined up perfectly. The how to video for my make and model of vehicle really made installation easier. Differently would recommend e-trailers hitches. 173227

by: Mark A.09/09/2013

Hitch arrived for Dodge Journey very quickly and was the proper one for vehicle. Installation was more complicated than expected as you can't see past the mufflers to locate the position of the handle nuts. As an amateur, I spent a LOT of time trying to get the bolts into those nuts, by feel alone. Finally succeeded and the hitch looks great and no rattling with exhaust components. For their part, etrailer did an excellent job getting the right hitch and rapid delivery. 99017

Great hitch! Easy install and looks great! We originally bought one off of Amazon and after 3 hours of fighting with it we realized it was too big even after Amazon said it was compatible with my vehicle. I have a 2016 Dodge Journey Crossroad. Very happy with our purchase! 384960

Receiver fit into place with no issues. Only challenging part of the install was getting the muffler lowered since I had a hard time reaching the rubber isolators and getting them unhooked. Once that was out of the way the receiver went on fairly easily. 376347

Hitch was delivered very promply. Installation was very easy, I didn't even jack up the car or put it up on ramps. Wireing kit was very easy to install. Hitch and wireing kit had everything needed, I didn't have to purchase anything else. E-trailer also provides videos with step by step installation on what ever car or truck you are installing hitch on. I installed mine on a 2012 Dodge Journey. 43376

I must have gotten the wrong one for a 09 journey because the rear holes was off by a half a hole, so I had to remove it and take it to a shop and enlarge the rear holes in order for it fit other than the inconvence of that it was fine. Sorry I did not take pictures 183988

Product came sooner than expected. Mechanic that installed it said it was a good hitch and easy to install. Price was good. Saved me several hundred dollars as opposed to walking into a shop and have the whole thing done there. Good going etrailer!! 308651

by: Nick07/12/2015

The hitch came in on time and was fairly easy to put on. It takes a couple of hours if this is your first time and now that I've done it, I can most likely do it in a hours time. But we'll worth it in the long run! Will order again from etrailer. 211149

The hitch fit perfect and was easy to install. Only took 35min for the hitch once the exhaust was out of the way. Took an hour for the exhaust. The special tool would have helped. Hitch looks great under the vehicle. Would recommend this product. 44767

by: Bill B08/18/2013

Fits nicely and looks good. Looks like it should be there, not an aftermarket unit that looks out of place. Easy installation on Dodge Journey. Take the spare tire plastic ring down from the start to make it easier to drop the exhaust. 95685

by: Danny S.12/05/2011

Hitch arrived much earlier than expected and was easy to install. Looks great on my 2012 Dodge Journey and funtions as advertised. I definately recommend using some WD-40 to loosen the rubber grommets when lowering the muffler. 27735

  • Determine if 2014 Dodge Journey has LED or Incandescent Taillights for Trailer Hitch and Wiring

If you can watch the bulb get brighter and looking at the light doesn't hurt your eyes you would have incandescents. Also if the bulb is round and has that old school style of wiring in it where there is two vertical wires and a couple horizontal wires that run between them that is incandescent. For a...

  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75648 does indeed fit a 2015 Dodge Journey with dual exhaust. In order to get to the mounting locations for the hitch you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust. Take a look at the video I have linked that shows an example installation on a model with dual exhaust. 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....

  • Availability of Concealed Trailer Hitch for 2016 Dodge Journey
  • Because of the close proximity of the spare tire to the rear bumper, it isn't possible to conceal the hitch crosstube behind the bumper of your 2016 Dodge Journey, therefore all the hitches we offer would have the hitch mostly visible from the rear of the vehicle. Of the available hitches, the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13201 would be the least visible, because the cross tube bends upward on either side of the receiver tube, so it's a bit more concealed than the Draw-Tite or Hidden...

  • Towing Capacity and Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Dodge Journey 4 Cylinder
  • According to the vehicle owner's manual the 2016 Dodge Journey with the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder motor has a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 1,000 pounds and tongue weight capacity of 100 pounds. Based on this you would not be able to tow a 1,700 pound trailer. There aren't a lot of trailers that are under 1,000 pounds so if you have a different tow vehicle with a higher capacity I recommend using it for towing. If you do find a trailer that is within the vehicle capacities then...

  • Using Same Hitch on 2011 Grand Caravan and 2011 Dodge Journey
  • The design of the rear of the two vehicles you mentioned is different enough that the same hitch would not fit both vehicles. The overwhelming majority of trailer hitches are vehicle specific, they are designed to fit only one particular vehicle. For a 2011 Caravan, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III receiver, part # 75579. For a 2011 Dodge Journey, the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75648 would be my recommendation. If you look at the linked instructions for both hitches, you can...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Dodge Journey
  • I do have a solution for you, but we do not carry the Reese brand of trailer hitches. We do offer a Draw-Tite hitch that will fit your 2013 Dodge Journey just like the Reese hitch will.
