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 Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 GMC Canyon

Bob here at etrailer.com and today you're going to be taking a look at the draw tight class three custom fit trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 GMC Canyon. Now here's what our hitch is going to look like once we have it installed. The crosstube is going to sit right below the bumper, but the main thing we're going to see is that receiver tube sticking out. Now it's a class three so it is going to give us that two inch by two inch receiver tube opening and have the widest variety of options when it comes to accessories. If you want to hit the trail, we can put a bike rack in here, put a couple of bikes and we can take our friends with us. Or maybe we need to make more space inside of the bed or cabin of our truck.

Just put a cargo carrier back here.Maybe we need to get some elongated gear in the bed of our truck and we get a tailgate extender. Now the hitch is going to accept a standard five ACE pin and clip. These are not included with the kit, but you can find them here at etrailer.com. I know a lot of you may be wondering what that secondary hole towards the end of the receiver tube is for and that's actually for the J pin stabilization device. Now the way this is going to work, we're going to take the threaded hole and put it into the hitch pin hole and then we'll apply the nut on the other side.

As we tighten that nut up, that hook here is going to go into that secondary hole and it'll apply pressure to whatever we have mounted inside our hitch. That'll keep it nice and snug in there and it keeps it from rattling around making a lot of noise, but our J pin is also a locking device so it's going to keep all our accessories secure.Now again, this is going to be sold separately, but you can find it here at etrailer.com. Now if you are going to be towing a trailer, you're going to need a spot to hook up your safety chains regardless if that's a jet ski trailer or boat trailer, utility trailer for work or if you have a small pop-up camper. Either way we have to have somewhere to hook them up. We're going to have really large openings on the plate style here and even with these really big hooks, we still have plenty of room to get them on and off with ease.

The same thing can be said with the smaller hooks. Still have plenty of room to get it hooked on. As far as the weight rating goes for our hitch, our hitch is going to have an 800 pound tongue weight. That's going to be the maximum downward pressure at the end of the receiver tube.Put that in perspective, we're going to really be able to carry quite a bit of bikes with us, either four or five bikes on a bike rack or really maximize the carrying capacity of a cargo carrier. As far as the gross trailer weight rating goes, our hitch is going to have a 6,000 pound rating.

That's how much you can pull, but that does include the trailer and everything we have loaded on it. Now it is rated for use with weight distribution systems as well, which is going to be a separate component that's mounted on your trailer. The tongue weight is going to stay the same, but the gross trailer weight is going to bump up to 8,000 pounds. Now you do want to double check your GMC owner's manual because that is the rating for the hitch and we don't want to exceed the manufacturer's rating for our truck.I'd like to give you a few measurements and these are going to help you out whenever you're looking for accessories for your new hitch. Whether that be a ball mount, a bike rack, or even a cargo carrier. In the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is right about three inches. That measurement is going to come in handy. To make sure that you can put those folding accessories in the upright position and they're not going to come in contact with the rear bumper. From the ground of the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening it's right about 19 and a half inches.That measurement is going to help you when you're looking for a ball mount so you can make sure you find the appropriate rise or drop so you can match it up to your trailer. Now that we've seen what our hitch looks like and gone over some of the features, let's walk through the installation together.To begin your installation you want to lower down your spare tire so we have a little bit more room to work underneath. If you've never lowered one down before, we're going to have a little door over on the passenger side of our rear bumper. Open up the door. You want to gather your spare tools from underneath the rear seat and we can put all the rods together and we're going to turn them counter-clockwise and that'll release this cable and lower down the spare tire. Now we can move underneath our truck. Now directly above where our spare tire was we're going to have this cradle and there's going to be four bolts holding it in place. We're going to grab a 13 millimeter socket and pull all four bolts out. Once we get all the hardware removed and this bracket, we want to hold onto it because we are going to reinstall it.Now the back of that bumper structure here where we just removed those bolts, we want to pull these units off. So just kind of take a flat blade screwdriver, kind of open them up a little bit and slide them off just like that. Now that cradle that we removed that was above our spare tire, we wanted to take those U nuts and the section that's going towards the rear of our truck, we're going to slide those U nuts in place. Just want to make sure that the nut section is facing up away from the spare tire. We can set this aside so we can reinstall it later. Now we need to remove the bumper beam that's behind our bumper here, but it's also attaching our bumper to our truck. So what we're going to do is we're going to take a couple of jack stands and put them underneath the corner of our bumper on each side.That way we don't have to worry about it falling down. Now since ours is on a lift, we're going to use a pole jack. If yours is on the ground, you could use a regular jack stand or whatever you have to hold your bumper in place. When we put our jacks underneath, we don't want a whole lot of pressure on it. We just want it there to hold it and support it. We don't need to lift the truck up. Now another thing I like to do just to make sure that I know my bumper's not going to move too much and they're supported, I put the jack stands to hold it up, but now I'm going to put a strap on each corner to pull the bumper towards the truck going towards the front.So I'm just going to find a section on the bumper itself to hook my strap to. I'm going to run the other end all the way down so I meet up with my axle here. I'll pull my strap nice and taut. That way I have pressure going up and towards the front. Now we come to our impact structure on the very end here we're going to add two bolts going vertically. We're going to remove those two bolts, so I'll grab a 21 millimeter socket and pull them out.We're going to remove the two bolts on the other side as well. Don't worry, the bumper still has a few more bolts holding it in place. So once we get the ones in the bottom removed, we're not going to have to worry about it falling. Now if we come to the side of our impact structure, we're actually going to have two more bolts holding them in place and that's actually going to sneak behind the bumper. So we want to grab our 21 millimeter socket and pull both of those out. Now I will mention that it is a little bit limited on space in here so you may have to use a hand ratchet and just to let you know these bolts are pretty tight so you want to get them loose and I like to leave one in on each side that we don't have to worry about it falling down, but get it pretty loose so we just have a couple of threads holding it in place.Now before we take that last bolt out and remove our impact structure, we're going to remove this clip that has some wiring attached to it so we don't have to worry about it. Just take a flat blade screwdriver, trim panel tool, whatever you have available. You just want to pull that clip out and move it out of the way so we can get the whole impact structure out. Now I'm going to take that last bolt out that I had in hand tight to help hold it and with an extra set of hands we're going to remove the impact structure. It's not that heavy, but it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands so we can very carefully remove it without moving the bumper too much. Now with the bumper structure out of the way, you'll notice that there's a small gap in between our frame and the bumper bracket.You want to grab the half inch flat washers out of our kit. There should be another set of flat washers, but they're just slightly bigger so you want to grab the smaller of the two, and this is actually going to go in between our frame and the bumper mounting plate and we want to reinstall the factory hardware. We're going to do that for all four mounting locations, two on each side. Then we'll come back with a 21 millimeter socket and tighten up all the bolts going into the frame on the side of our bumper here.Once you have your bumper bolts backed in, we're going to lift our hitch up, line it up with the holes around the bottom of the frame. We're going to take one of our new bolts, a lock washer, and a flat washer and go through our hitch and thread them directly into the frame. You want to get at least one bolt in on each side. That way the hitch will support itself. We don't have to worry about it falling down. The remaining holes are going to get the same combination of a new bolt, lock washer, and flat washer. We'll come back with the 22 millimeter socket and tighten up the hardware holding our hitch in place.You want to make sure you come back with a torque wrench. I'm going to torque all my hardware down to the specified amount in the instructions. We'll go back and repeat that for any remaining hardware we have. All of our hardware torqued down. We're going to grab that spare tire bracket. We're going to make sure we set it on top of our hitch on the backside here, make sure those U nuts are going through and we'll take our factory hardware and re-secure it. For now I'm just going to go real loosely and started. That way I know the bolts aren't going to cross thread and that they are going in place, but we'll get them all in before we tighten them down. We'll come back with that same 13 millimeter socket and tighten up all our hardware.Once you have all your hardware tight, we can lower down our support stance, move them out of the way, and we can also remove the straps that we had tied to our bumper. Now all we have left to do is put our spare tire back and that will finish up your installation and your look at the draw tight class three custom fit trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 GMC Canyon.

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

Shipping was very fast. I installed the hitch and wiring harness over the weekend. The instructions were easy to follow. I did it myself; however an extra set of hands would have made it a little easier. The DrawTite hitch is more substantial than the original bumper support. It fit perfectly. The Hopkins wiring harness was easy to hook up and it looks like an OEM part. I’m very happy with my purchase. 778072

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

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
$27.26
. 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

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
