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 - 2016 Chevrolet Colorado- Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the Draw-Tite custom fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver. Offering the 2 inch by 2 inch opening, it's part number is 75948. Now, this is what our hitch looks like installed. You'll see, we've got a drop-down on our round tube, we're going to see it right here in the middle. The rest of it's going to remain hidden up here, behind the bumper. Safety chain connection points here. You're going to see, of course, our receiver tube opening.

You're going to see, we've got a nice bracket that's been welded on. It offers 3 pre-drilled holes, that's going to allow us to attach wiring here at the rear of the vehicle, if you don't already have the existing tow package. Now, this being a class 3 hitch, it's going to work out really well for just about any hitch mounted accessory. There's usually always a class 3 option available, whether it's going to be a bike rack, cargo carrier, ball mount, should work out in here just fine. You will notice our receiver tube, it has 2 holes in it. The one located here, closest to the front of the vehicle, is the one we're going to use to secure all of our items with.

It's 5/8ths of an inch in diameter. You want to use class 3 accessories. As you can see, there's a good open space so whether you're using a standard hitch pin and clip, locking hitch pin, or even anti-rattle bolt, it shouldn't have any issues fitting in there and being installed. One of those options is a j-pin stabilization system, that's the only time that you're going to use this smaller hole closer to the rear. Now, this being a class 3 hitch, it's nice and sturdy. It's going to offer an 800 pound tongue weight rating, so that's the maximum downward force that we can put here at our receiver tube opening. It gives us a 6,000 pound gross trailer weight rating.

That will be the total weight of our trailer, and anything that we we're load up on it. If we go into a weight distribution set-up, our tongue weight stays the same at the 800 pounds, but the gross trailer weight rating, that goes up to 8,000. Now, you will want to look in the owner's manual on the Colorado. You want to figure out what it's rated for, and then go off of whichever of those numbers is the lowest. Now, a couple measurements that you'll find helpful in selecting your ball mount, bike racks, or hitch cargo carriers, will be from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube opening. We've got about 19 and a quarter inches.

Then, from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our bumper, we've got about 2 and a quarter. The first step's going to be for us to lower our spare tire down and out of position. Now, our next step is going to be removing the cross member that comes across here, where our ball mount would go if we we're going bumper tow something there. We want to give some support to our bumper on each side here. The same bolts that hold up this cross member, also hold our bumper into place. You can see here that I've used a pole jack on each side in the flat spot on our bumper. You could also do that with a set of jack stands to get it up and support it. Then, I'm going to go around the metal that's right behind the license plate, and I want that go to pretty much straight back. I'm going to connect it to this cross member that holds up our spare tire. What that's going to do is pull our bumper in towards the vehicle, so we won't have to worry about it moving, and then we've got each side support and so we won't have to worry about it coming down. Now we want to use our 13mm socket. We're going to pull out the 2 bolts located here at the rear, and the 2 here in the front on our space tire cradle. We'll return that to our customer, since we won't be re-installing it. Now, on each side, we're going to have 4 bolts that we need to remove. We've got the 2 located here in the bottom of our frame rail, here and here. Then right up here on the outside of the frame rail, we've got one here, and then one a little bit higher and closer to the rear of the vehicle. You'll see now, that bumper's got a little bit of wiggle to it. That's why we've got these supports here. You see how that's just going to kind of tip down there, we're using those 2 rear bolts for support. We'll just pull those out, and pull it down and out of the way. As we bring this down, we'll want to remove the little fastener that holds in the wire loom 00:04:37 here on the driver's side. Now, we'll return our bumper support to our customer, in case they ever decide to remove the hitch, they'll want to put that back in place. We're going to replace our bolts on the side here. What we want to do is slide a flat washer right down in between the outer bumper bracket, and our frame. That's going to act as a spacer from where we took that cross beam out. With the help of an extra set of hands, we're ready to get our hitch raised up into position. We're going to use our new hardware. You can see we've got a locking washer on there, and a flat washer. We'll bring it right up to our frame rail. We're going to get these threaded in. Once we have one on each side started, with about 4 or 5 good turns, we should be able to let our hitch rest there while we get our other one started. Now, we'll get these all snugged down. All right, now it's time to look in our instructions, there we'll find our torque specifications. We're going to go around to all of our fasteners, including the ones on the side, and make sure we get them torqued down properly. All right, now with those all torqued down to specification, we're going to get our jack stands out of the way here, remove our strap. We'll get our spare tire back into position, and our hitch is going to be ready for use. That's going to complete our installation of the Draw-Tite custom fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number 75948, on our 2016 Chevrolet Colorado.

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


Comments

If you need a 7-way plug on your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado I recommend part # C55774
Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way and 4-Pole Flat Connectors
$25.95
. This curt connector plugs into the OEM tow package on the Colorado. If the vehicle does not have an OEM towing package then you will need part # HM11141144
Hopkins Multi-Tow 7-Way Blade and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector - Chevrolet/GMC
$37.95
which will hardwire into the trucks bare factory wiring at the rear of the truck.

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

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

Very easy to install. It arrived with some large areas where the powder coating had been chipped off. Had to prime and paint before installation, But otherwise can’t wait to use it to tow a new camper we purchased. 633702

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

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

First of all, the delivery of this trailer hitch receiver was quick. It came well packaged, all the parts needed in addition to the electrical connection which was ordered, were included int he box with the hitch. It was just as described in the advertisement and installation was just as viewed in the video on you tube. the installation was easy and the wiring was correctly color coded to my truck. I recommend etrailer for all your towing needs. I will use thin again in the future! 592270

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

  • Fit of Hitches for 2015 Chevy Colorado on 2014 Isuzu D-Max LS 4x4
  • 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 #...
