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 Jeep Cherokee

Speaker: Today we're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install the draw tight class three trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee. It's going to be a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening, will have a reinforced collar here just to get us a little extra stability. This hole here, it's going to be for your hitch pin. It's going to take a standard five eighths inch hitch pin. Hitch pin and clip does not come with the hitch. However, it can be found here at etrailer.com.

This hole here is going to be for a j pin stabilization device. And what that does, it takes any of the shake and play out of any of your hitch mount accessories. The safety chain loops are going to be a vertical style.How this hitch is different than others is they're welded to the side of our receiver tube. Some of the other hitches are going to be welded a flat plate this way or there's going to have a loop down at the bottom. The good thing about this being this way is, if you have a locking device here at the top, your j pin stabilization device or a different locking device, with your safety chain loops running this way, blocking devices is not gonna interfere with your hooks.

With the other styles that run flat, those tend to interfere with larger hooks.As far as our weight ratings go, we're gonna have a 500 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. 5,000 pound gross trailer rate, which is the trailer plus the load included. You can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weight and trailer weight is gonna stay the same. I always recommend checking the owner's manual of your vehicle to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight.

You're going to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now, let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need such as a bike rack. inaudible 00:01:41 cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper, it's going to be about five inches. This number's important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube is going to be about 13 inches.

This number is important for any of your hitch mounted accessories that may require extra ground clearance. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed.Per our instruction, it's gonna tell us if you have exhaust ports like this, you need to take them down. It's gonna tell you that you have 13 millimeter bolts, three of them, that hold this exhaust port in place. On the '19, they're actually not nutted and bolted in. They're actually riveted in. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to loosen my facia first to see if I can get enough room to move that out so I can get to that rotor. It's a 10 millimeter socket, four bolts right down here at the bottom.And we're going to have three different rotors on each side. We're gonna have two here, or one here on each side, and we're going to have one up on the top. The problem is the one on top is a little bit harder to get to the way it is. So, we're gonna take out these two to get this loose. We're going to lower our exhaust enough to where you can get our drill up on top. And we're just using a small drill bit. We're going to drill right through the center.Take a strap and we need to support our exhaust before we lower it. I like to hang it right on the springs because they're easily accessible. You're going to run it right underneath your pipe. And you're going to have a hanger on each side that has two bolts in it. This one, it's still detached, the back end didn't come all the way off. You can take some needle nose pliers and reach in and break that off, or you can take a little bit bigger drill bit if you want.I'm going to use needle nose and do the same thing to the other side. Go ahead and lower your exhaust a little bit. Don't let it put a whole lot of pressure up on the front side. Just enough that we can get our hitch up inside. The lower facia attaches to a panel. This panel right here is going to need to come down. There's gonna be . On older models, there's little clips that you can just push in and pull this panel off.For the '19, there's actually . At the top, there's four nuts. And they're right up inside here. There's four nuts that hold it in place. 10 millimeter socket. We'll take those off. And we'll set it aside for right now. That's when we need to trim down our lower facia. You find the center. Then, I just use a black marker. Three and a half wide, 3.75 high. We're gonna be taking out this square here. On our passenger's side, we're going to have wiring running underneath our frame rail. We're going to have to pop the fasteners out of the frame rail and let this hang, so we can get our hitch on our . up to our frame.These are going to be our mounting locations. You can't have the wiring underneath our hitch. So, screwdriver or a trim panel tool, we're just going to pop these out like this. And over here, I'm gonna let that hang like that for now. That's where to insert our hardware. You're going to have to pull wires like this, carriage bolt and spacer block. Go ahead and put your carriage bolt in your spacer block. Again, we're going to be using this hole, this hole, and this one up to the side. We're going to start with this one. Take your spring in, kind of put it a little bit of a bend in it. We're going to go through the hole and come out of this one.Take your carriage bolts and your spacer block, thread it on like this. Then pull it back down. Next one we're going to do is going be this one on this side. For this one, we're gonna pull it out. And then what we're going to do is we're going to take it and you're going to slide it, set it right back inside the frame rail. For this last one, we're gonna do it a little bit different. Go ahead and thread on your carriage bolt and spacer block on to your pull wire. We're gonna do a reverse feed. So, we're going to put the bolt up first, and the spacer block.You're going to repeat that process on the other side. On the outside of each frame rail, if you have this sealer right here, it's a good idea to shave that down so it's flat, so your hip sits flat against the frame. Then you just take a knife . It's just a rubber sealer. You're going to have some lock washers in your kit. They say to install these only if you need them. They're going to go on these outside ones in between the frame rail and the hitch just like that.Now, with an extra set of hands, we'll get our hitch into position. We're going to insert our pull wires in the corresponding holes in the hitch. And if you get your two bolts on the outside of your frame rail, pull them through the hitch, it'll help hold your hitch in place while you install your remaining hardware. Now you can remove your pull wires and take a conical tooth washer, teeth facing towards the hitch, and you're gonna put it on your mount.With a seven eighth socket, we're gonna tighten, and then torque all of our hardware to the specifications in the instructions. Go ahead and reinstall your exhaust. Secure it back into place. Then on the pressure side here, this wire, the kit's gonna come with a zip tie. From the zip tie right through the exhaust singer. And that's how we're going to secure up our wiring. Now, to reinstall our exhaust ports, what I'm going to do instead of re riveting it it back in there, I'm actually going to put 12 set of bolts with nuts. I'm going to start with the very top one up here. I'm gonna go ahead and insert it in the hole. Take your screwdriver, go ahead and get it onto your screw. Reach it up top. Clip on that. Then we can reach up on the onside and install the nut. We'll do the same thing for two side flanges. Once everything's back in place, we can remove our strap. That's going to complete our look at an installation on the Draw-tite class three trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

our trailer hitch arrived quickly and was fairly easy to install and better yet made in the USA! 616206

Overall happy with the product. The hitch installation was a breeze; however the wiring was a nightmare. The instructions aren’t really that clear so we went online in hopes someone has done it.. and from this website there was a video! BUT, it was completely different from the instructions.. very frustrating but we made it work. I wish it was a little higher because my drop hitch still isn’t enough to get the trailer up high enough... but it will do for now. Quality is great. 671201

Fast delivery, excellent product and packed well. For me, this definitely was a two person job. The instructions don’t say anything about putting the backing plate for the facia back on but does say return it to the owner. I didn’t like the way the facia flapped around without the backing plate so I did some cutting (picture) and reinstalled it, much better. 617648

Additional modifications to hidden panels required on 2019 Jeep Cherokee that presumably does not exist on 2018 model (according to the how-to video viewed on this site). Bolts, placement, etc. all perfectly align and is simple enough for any d-i-yer, however, I would have preferred to see a video of the install on an actual 2019 Jeep Cherokee so that there would have been no surprises as I encountered during the install. The look is great! I love not having to see the horizontal bar - only the hitch. No clearance challenges so far on hang down either. 599709

the hitch went on easy, but it does require two people to get it lined up. Only thing wrong with the instructions was that they had me cut the hole in the facia to tall.. I think a 3.5 in by 3,5 in hole would look better. 475792

Installed on a 2019 Jeep Cherokee overland. This is a solidly constructed hitch and hides all but the receiver nicely. The instructions and video from etrailer are spot on. The recommendation for using bolts for the rivets is definitely easier as well. I installed this in about 2.5 hours, on the floor to help with height, since I was solo. Two people would make this far easier to line up, but its possible by yourself. The hard plastic piece (4:05 in the video) can be reinstalled with some creative cutting. Essentially, I cut it in half and notched the ends on both sides to fit into the hitch bar and around the receiver. The fascia flaps too much for my taste without reconnecting it to that hard plastic piece. 636124

  • Draw-Tite vs. Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Jeep Cherokee
  • The trailer hitch receiver I recommend for your 2020 Jeep Cherokee is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13395 over the Draw-Tite # 75998 because it is the easier installation, and because of the Curt's superior tongue weight, which is particularly useful for accessories. The Draw-Tite hitch requires trimming a 3-1/2" by 3-3/4" piece of the lower fascia, while the Curt hitch does not require any trimming of the fascia. It is possible that the trimming of the exhaust bezel might be needed,...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Jeep Cherokee with Dual Exhaust
  • Out of the available options for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee with a dual exhaust I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13395. Since all of the options exceed the max weight ratings of a 2019 Cherokee it really just boils down to looks and functionality. The Curt # C13395 is designed so that only the receiver is showing and is rated 5 out of 10 for installation as opposed to the 8 out of 10 rating for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75998 which has the same type of design...

  • We have trailer hitches with concealed crosstubes that fit your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk like the Draw Tite part # 75998 which is a great option, but the hitch tube does hang below the rear bumper of the vehicle.

  • Comparing Curt Hitch C13172 and Draw Tite # 75998 for 2017 Jeep Cherokee
  • Both the Curt hitch # C13172 and Draw Tite ball mount part # 75998 are a confirmed fit for your 2017 Jeep Cherokee. They are similar designs as they are both 2 inch hitches that only have the hitch opening visible. The biggest difference is that they are made by two different manufacturers, Curt and Draw Tite, the Curt has higher towing capacities at 5,000 lbs trailer and 750 tongue weight vs Draw Tite 5,000/500, and the Curt is made in the USA.

  • Trailer Hitch Installation Difficulty on a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75998 is indeed a fit for the Latitude model of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Trailer hitch installation is something that you can do at home but I do recommend having an assistant because hitches are heavy and getting them in the right place and tightening hardware at the same time is difficult for one person to do alone. All 2014 Jeep Cherokees will have the holes for the hitch already in the frame. You will not have to do any drilling but there is some trimming...

  • While it is accurate that there isn't much clearance between Curt hitch # C13172 and the muffler on a 2018 Jeep Cherokee, it is bolted onto the frame of the vehicle. It should be sturdy and not move to hit the muffler if torqued to the correct specs, which you can see in the linked directions. It is, of course, possible that extremely rough terrain could cause some vibration but if installed properly the hitch and muffler should peacefully coexist.

This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. Since you plan on towing I recommend the 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. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch...

  • I actually have the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75998 installed on my Jeep and it looks and works really great, so that's the hitch I recommend for your 2020 Jeep Cherokee. For a bike rack, I recommend the Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469. What you'll really like about this rack is that it can be used as a 2-bike rack for when it's only you and your wife, but can transform into a 4-bike rack with the 2-bike add-on that's included. Another great feature...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude with Dual Exhaust
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75998 will fit your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude with dual exhaust including models with a V6 motor. If you end up going with hitch 75998 then you can use ball mount kit # 989900. And no matter which hitch you end up choosing you can use # 118605 to add a 4-Way flat trailer connector to the rear of the vehicle. I have linked a video showing how it installs.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with Best Ground Clearance
  • The highest and most concealed hitch that's a fit for your 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is the Draw Tite # 75998. Only the hitch opening will be visible with this hitch and it sits 1/4 inch higher than the Curt equivalent # C13172. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Best Option for Carrying Two Bikes on 2016 Jeep Cherokee Limited
  • The Hollywood Racks # HRF2 is indeed a fit for your Cherokee Limited. The rack is covered by a limited lifetime warranty and has a 35 lb per bike/ 70 lb total weight capacity. Of the various trunk mount bike racks we offer, I believe the Hollywood Racks # HRF2 would be the best fit. Since the rack lifts the top straps up and over the rear spoiler, this rack will wont hang from the rear spoiler and possibly damage it. All this being said, since you already have a very nice bike rack,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee
  • The lower fascia on the back of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee curves, not straight up and down, so the reason there has to be trimming is because of how gentle that curve is and how long it curves. If the fascia went from vertical to horizontal like an L shape there would be no trimming. But it sort of gently curves down so trimming is required to install the hitch. I have included a picture that should help. It is a different hitch but shows the curve nicely. The other hitch, # 75998, has...

  • Towing Capacity of 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus 4x4
  • The towing capacity of any given vehicle is a function of several features including the engine, transmission, suspension and cooling system, among others, and the auto maker gets to determine how much weight any vehicle can tow. Sometimes addition of an optional factory "tow package" will increase towing capacity over that of the base model. The base model of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus 4x4 has a towing capacity of 2000-lbs; the version that is equipped with the 3.2L automatic...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit a Base Model 2015 Jeep Cherokee
  • We have a few hitches that fit your 2015 Jeep Cherokee. I recommend sticking with a Class III trailer hitch because you'll get all the capacity available from your Jeep and also the 2 inch opening is more common so more accessories are available To avoid making any modifications to your Cherokee use the Curt # C13171. I've linked a video of it being installed on a Limited but the process is the same for yours. I've also linked the install details. If you're okay performing some...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness For a 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • I have the perfect options for you to tow a trailer with your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and they do not require any welding or drilling. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75998 because it has a hidden design so that only the receiver tube opening will be shown once installed (see photo).

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport
  • To tow a trailer with your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport you'll need the hitch receiver and wiring like you mentioned. Plus, a ball mount, hitch, ball, and a pin and clip. I've linked an article that explains each part in detail for you. The trailer hitch receiver I recommend is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75998. It's a Class III, 2 inch receiver designed specifically for your Jeep. I like this hitch because all you see is the receiver opening and safety chain loops once it's installed. Then...

  • We have the Draw Tite hitch part # 75998 which fits both the Trailhawk and non-Trailhawk models. Other hitches though do not fit both styles so it really would depend on what you have if you were thinking about transferring a hitch.

  • Can a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Support 280 Pounds of Chair Lift and Chair
  • As long as your 2016 Jeep Cherokee has the 3.2 liter motor with the trailer tow package then it can support up to 450 pounds tongue weight which is more than enough for the chair lift and chair combined. If you have the 3.2 liter but do not have the factory tow package the vehicle is limited to 200 pounds tongue weight and the same goes for the 2.4 liter motor with or without the factory tow package. If you do have the 3.2 liter and factory tow package I recommend Draw-Tite hitch...
