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 - 2018 Chevrolet Colorado- Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 Chevrolet Colorado, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the draw tight class three trailer hitch receiver, part number 75948. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. You'll notice this hitch is mostly concealed behind our bumper except for this center section here where the receiver is. On the end of our receiver, you'll find this nice welded collar that helps give this more finished look and helps improve the strength of the receiver opening. On the side of the receiver you'll find two pin holes. The larger one closer to the front of the vehicle is your industry standard five eighth of an inch, diamond hitch inaudible 00:00:35 hole.

To secure your hitch mount and accessories. You can pick up a pin clip on our website at part number PC3.Closer to the rear of the vehicle the small diamond hole is for a J10 stabilization device. What that does is take away the annoying shake play and rattle out of what is inserted inside your receiver. We have one of those available separately as well. Now one great thing about this hitch compared to the other ones out there are safety chain plates are welded horizontally to the bottom of the receiver.

This gives us more ground clearance so they're not hanging down. They also have a really large opening so it makes it easy to hook on even a large diameter safe chain hook such as this one.This hitch features an 800 pound tongue weight rating which I'm not forcing down and a 6,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating which is the amount it can pull. It does support the use of weight distribution and when we're using that with our trailer, our tongue weight rating stays the same at 800 pounds but our max trailer weight rating increases to 8,000 pounds. We wanna make sure we consult the owner's manual of Colorado and not exceed what the vehicle is rated for. Go by whichever number's lower.What I really like about this hitch compared to other is how well it looks on the vehicle.

It's a really contoured and sleek design which isn't really visible underneath the vehicle at all. Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. You're looking at about 19 inches from the ground to the top of the inaudible 00:02:00 receiver opening and about three inches from the center of the hitch can hold to the rear most part of the back bumper.Now some of our customers have noted when installing a hitch on a Colorado that it is a little bit difficult for them. We'll show you a few tricks to actually get it done quite a bit easier. So to begin our install we went ahead and removed our spare tire.

Now we need to remove our spare tire brace by removing these four 13 millimeter bolts.Now on our factory bumper hitch or bumper beam, we're gonna remove these clip nuts here. To do that let's use a flathead screwdriver to help pry them out and I'll pull 'em off.Now we'll take those clip nuts and we'll transfer them to our plate that we removed earlier. This is on the backside of the plate that'll be closest to the bumper. You want the top of the nut facing up. Now we're using a couple jacks to support our bumper because we're gonna be removing the hardware that holds it in place. On the bottom we'll have two, 21 millimeter bolts on each side.Keep in mind everything that we do on one side we'll repeat on the other side. The only difference that we have on the drivers side is there's a wiring harness that's attached to the beam that we need to unclip before we remove it. So use a trim panel tool or flat head screwdriver and pop it out, just like that.Now we have two more bolts on the side that actually holds our bumper into the frame. Our hitch goes behind that plate so we have to remove these two bolts. Now with a couple sets of extra hands we have somebody helping support the bumper and then we have somebody supporting the hitch bracket itself that we're removing and we can remove our bolts on the side now.With all of our bolts removed, we'll now carefully pull down on this, make sure our bumper stays in place and we can set that aside. We can reinstall the factory bolts into the side of the frame but we're going to take a washer and go in between the frame and where the bumper secures the frame.The washer we're using, these are the smaller ones. These are the half inch diameter washers. Put those in place, we can now tighten those bolts down securely.Now our hitch will be secured in place with new hardware to the bottom locations on our frame. We'll have a bolt, a walk washer and a flat washer. It'll be the same on all four locations. Now with an extra set of hands we'll raise our hitch into position and we'll secure it with the new hardware.Now we'll reinstall our spare tire brace.I'll tighten all of our hardware now.Now we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now we can reinstall our spare tire. However, for video purposes here today, we're gonna be leaving ours out for the time being. Rest assured a full size spare tire will still fit in this area around the hitch without any problems.That completes our look at in showing you how to install the draw tight class three trailer hitch receiver. Part number 75948 on this 2018 Chevrolet Colorado.

For the 2018 Chevy Colorado, everything went very easily. The only hard part was removing the original bolts on the factory hitch and bumper. An impact wrench is suggested, but it would be harder with the bumper bolts. I suspended the bumper with cords from above rather than jack stands. The bumper is very light and cords from above give much more flexibility to fit the new bolts in place. Did the whole job without a lift and entirely by myself. Nothing heavy or requiring a second or third person. The electrical hookup was the simplest ever with the factory wiring already in place. No need to get into the tail lights. All excellent. 612358

I installed the hitch reciever and the 4 and 7 pin plug but what's the wiring harness I'll need? I figured that would be with the plug. 586454

If you need a 7-way plug on your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado I recommend part # C55774

I just finished installing my Draw-Tite hitch to my new Colorado and the whole process from purchase to final installation was a breeze. The hitch arrived two days from when I ordered with a very thorough set of instructions. I also watched a youtube video to familiarize myself with the install. I highly recommend etrailer.com Great pricing and fast shipping is a winning combo. 470647

Item works as it should and wasn't to bad to install. Asthethically it seems as if it's under engineered because of the side plates that are on the factory part but not this upgrade. 599653

The hitch was an exact fit for the truck it was purchased for and delivered in excellent condition. Dealing with etrailer.com has been easy and the hitch was a very good value. This is the 2nd purchase I've made from etrailer.com and I will go back to them again if needed. Recommend them highly. 524136

Easier to install than we expected. The Chevy Colorado has a bar behind the bumper that must be removed before installing the hitch. It wasn't as difficult as we expected. The hitch seems to be great quality and heavy duty. 519195

First off, I can hardly believe how quickly my order (hitch receiver, ball mount and wiring kit) arrived. I ordered it Wednesday during business hours, selected standard shipping (free) and it was waiting for me at home on Friday afternoon. I installed it all this morning. As others have mentioned, it definitely takes longer to remove the factory parts than it does to install the new parts. Make sure you have an extension for your socket set to make getting the rearmost bolt out/in of the frame easier. One thing to note, the installation videos that were suggested to me for this hitch receiver said that the spare tire cradle could not/would not be re-installed, however, this particular hitch has a flange that allows for the cradle to be reinstalled again. All you have to do is pop off the threaded clips from the factory receiver and install them on the new receiver. This can be done easily using a flat screw driver. One other "tip & trick" is that the shipping box that the receiver came in can be used as a nice cushion on the garage floor to give you some insulation/padding if you're not fortunate enough to have a lift at your disposal. Just pull out all the staples and flatten the box, presto-chango, there you go! 493794

Hitch went on without issue. Removing factory parts took infinitely longer ! Definitely easier with 2 people. Hitch looks great, I chose the round bar to match my Westin step bars. Also installed the Hopkins HM40975-11998 wiring kit that fits in the factory bumper cut out it looks super clean with no dangling wires. Watched the 2 videos a few times (hitch and wiring) and it took about an hour and a half to install both. 365084

    I'm assuming your 2014 Isuzu D-Max is based on the 2nd generation Colorado. Because the 2nd generation Colorado wasn't available in the US until the 2015 model year, and we don't know how closely the Colorado resembles the D-Max, the hitch manufacturer can't say if the hitch will be compatible or not. They haven't test fit your particular vehicle, so they aren't prepared to guarantee the fit. I've provided a diagram showing the bolt hole spacing of the Draw-Tite # 75948. The #...
