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 Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Nissan Pathfinder - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, we'll be having a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Class 3, 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, part number 76031. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. As you can see, it's nice and tucked up underneath our rear fascia here, giving us optimal ground clearance and hiding most of the body of the hitch underneath the fascia itself, giving us a nice, clean look. On the side of our hitch here, we'll see our standard 5/8 of an inch diameter hitch pin hole and towards the rear, we'll have our J Pin stabilization device hole. J Pin stabilization device will take some of that annoying shake, play and rattle out of what's inserted into your receiver such as your bike rack or your cargo carrier. Down on the bottom here, we have some nice, large, easy to use safety chain loops on a plate welded to the bottom of the receiver and the frame. Off to the driver's side, we have this nice attachment point here that's welded onto the hitch, giving us a place to mount our 4-pole flat trailer wiring or our 7-way RV wiring, or whatever other trailer wiring that we have on our vehicle. This hitch features a 900 pound max tongue weight rating and a 6,000 pound gross trailer weight rating.

It does support the use of weight distribution but those numbers stay the same. You'll want to consult with the owner's manual on your Nissan Pathfinder and go by whichever number's less. You don't want to exceed the limits of the vehicle or the hitch and cause damage to either one. What I really like about this hitch compared to other hitches is how nice it looks underneath our vehicle with it being really tucked up under the fascia and the added features it has, such as our J Pin hole here, so we don't have to listen to that annoying rattle while we're going down the road, and then the mounting bracket here for our wiring harnesses, that way they're readily available for us. We don't have to fish them out of the vehicle. They're not dangling.

They're easy for us to hook up to and always there when we need them when we're towing our trailer. Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch-mounted accessory you may need, such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. You're looking at about 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear most part of the back bumper and about 14 1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the 2 inch class 3 receiver opening. Okay, to begin our installation on the driver's side of the vehicle, our factory tow hook needs to be removed. We have two 18 millimeter bolts here on the side and on the bottom, we have two more, so there's four bolts in total. We'll just set this aside.

We will not be reinstalling it. Our hitch will be installed using the three well nuts on the inside of our frame well on both sides of the vehicle. Now, a little tech tip here for you. A lot of times there will be some dirt, debris or rust inside of those well nuts. If you spray some lubricant in there and you use a pipe brush, which we have available on our website as part number 814092, run it up and down a few times.

That will clean up the threads and the bolts will go in nice and easy. Make sure we do the same thing on the other side. Our hitch is held in place using six bolts with a lock washer and a flat washer. They're all the same so we'll get all of our hardware set up like this and we'll grab an extra set of hands and raise our hitch in position and secure it with the hardware. Okay, so we'll raise our hitch up and over the exhaust and install our hardware. We'll just get a couple started on each side by hand. Now that we have all of our hardware started, we'll snug them down. Now, we'll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. That completes our look at and installation of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Class 3 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, part number 76031, on our 2017 Nissan Pathfinder.

Love it ! It worked for our 2015 Nissan Pathfinder S. Easy to install and etrailers and Youtube provide great installation guide! My 13yrs son helped me out, he wanted to give me a hand and it was great experience for him. He did most of the installation with my guide. I showed him how to use our borrowed digital torgue wrench as well. To help us out, we did use a floor jack to help hold a lot of the hitch's weight. We recommend this product, very easy to install, no need to have someone else install it. 469789

We love it and we’re glad we bought it. I did have problem with hitch’s plug bracket mounting because it positioned the plug at a lower position and when my wife drove our 2015 Pathfinder in this building and had to drive out, the building’s exit ramp was at an angle where it ripped the plug’s cover off. The hitch I believe it positioned it a little lower than OEM so I just bought another different plug housing where I was able to mount plug and housing on top of the hitch. It works well and we’re satisfied with the whole setup.

I received my Draw Tite hitch today, The paint was severely chipped/peeled away in several places right out of the box. Not too happy with the finish, don't want the hitch to rust and the exposed chipped paint won't look good on my new Nissan Pathfinder that I took deliver on last week. 445744

Perfect fit ment. Install instructions were not completely clear but the informational video on the site for my particular vehicle cleared up any issues I had. Had to removed the factory tow hook, wasn’t in the paper instructions but was covered in the video. Install took about 30 minutes by myself. 544113

When it is installed, it looks like it was meant to be there. It took three of us to get it in place and installed. Lining the mounting plates with the weld nuts was a little tricky. Once we finally got all six bolts started, the install was easier from there. The install video on etrailer.com's website was a nice guide. It gave me confidence in believing I didn't have to hire out the install. 538975

The product itself has been excellent and I would have given it five stars, however, installation was not as easy as reads on site. There is a piece on the Infinity that must be removed prior to installation but you can’t remove it with a normal wrench or even power drill. After lots of crawling under the car and a bench wrench I realized you must have an pneumatic tool to remove (which defeats the self installation). Fortunately I took the car to the dealership and they were willing to remove the tie down piece for free. I was then able to install the mount without problem and it has been a great product. 496989

Etrailer's service is great, but For a 2014 Pathfinder this product is a complete pain. First of all, the existing tow hook on a '14 is secured with 4 bolts, not two. My car had no rust or corrosion, but it still required a breaker bar to get them loose. Then the real fun begins. The three bolt holes where the old tow hook was are readily accessible, but two of the other three are literally behind the exhaust pipe. This means you'll need to move the pipe over-it will-to access one, but for the other unless you have a hinged socket head you'll never access it with your torque wrench. With all these exceptions, the process was OK. I have no idea whose Pathfinders have factory tow hooks secured with 2 bolts... 380281

Great product at a fair price. Excellent packaging. Very easy installation. Everything was exactly as the included instructions displayed. It took about 90 minutes start to finish with only hand tools. No helper or jack needed. Although the hitch itself fit the vehicle precisely, I had to remove the towing mount due to it overlapping the frame where the hitch mounts. Not a big deal as the tow truck guy can hook to the new hitch instead. A note which will likely be frowned upon by eTrailers, if you want to avoid removing the rear threshold, the trim piece, and the cargo compartment, and the huge speaker if installed, there is an alternative. If you pop off the access grill in the rear side panel, you can carefully cut the nonessential plastic out (using care not to remove the outer area where the grill plugs in) with a heated razor knife, you can easily access the harness plugs. The only negative was after paying extra for three day shipping, with a limited window to install it, it took FOUR full business days to receive. Overall, a great experience! 230596

I ordered DrawTite hitch #76031 along with Tekonsha Wiring #118273 and HM40975, 7 and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket for my 2018 Nissan Pathfinder SL. I ordered on a Thursday afternoon and the merchandise arrived the following Monday evening (with free shipping and no tax). The hitch arrived in excellent condition with no scratches or scrapes and was packaged very well. The total for my order was a great price! This also included a tube of dielectric grease and a brush. To get a factory hitch would have required an expensive "Technology Package" at a cost of over $2000 or a dealer install which would have cost over $1000. I did the install of the hitch myself. It would have been far easier if I had a lift to raise the vehicle off the ground, and a helper to hold the hitch in place and get the 6 frame bolts started. I used an ice chest to prop up one side of the hitch while I got the bolts started on the other side. Watch the videos from etrailer before doing the install. I did have to trim about one-eighth of an inch off the corner of the gasoline vapor recovery box on the left underside of the vehicle to get the hitch into a position so that the holes in the hitch lined up with the weld nuts on the frame. I used a rotary file on the end of my drill to do this. The 2X2 receiver does barely touch the bottom of the rear trim on my Pathfinder but did not require cutting the trim to get it to fit. The Tekonsha #118273 Factory Wiring was not difficult to install. The etrailer video on how to install this item was not as good as it could have been. The installer says he is going to make the 2 vehicle connections inside the left-rear of the vehicle "by feel," which may be fine for someone who knows what he is doing, but was not helpful to me. I pulled back the trim on the inside left rear to make these 2 connections. You should definitely make ALL of your wiring connections BEFORE installing the hitch itself. If you don't, it will be very difficult to reach the connectors outside the right rear of the vehicle if the hitch is already in place. BE WARNED about this. The HM40975 connector was very easy to install and by having it you will not need to use an adapter to use a 4-way flat trailer connector. I used 2 stainless steel bolts to fasten the bracket into place instead of the included self-tapping bolts that were in the kit. This item is well worth the small cost. I am completely satisfied with my purchase from etrailer and will not hesitate to recommend them highly. Both George and Adam at Etrailer were very helpful. See the picture of the completed install on my 2018 Nissan Pathfinder SL. 566296

Trailer hitch arrived quickly. The black paint was scratched a lot and the box was open when I received it, with no stabilization to hold he hitch firmly inside. There was no structural damage and you will not be able to see the scratches once installed. We had to remove the existing tow hook on the driver's side, but then realized there was another part in the way that would not allow the holes to line up. We ended up filing the plastic part quite a bit in order to get the hitch to fit. Because of this, it took longer than expected to attach (including a trip to the store for a file). Overall, I am happy with this product for the price. 457028

Very easy to install. This is the only hitch that doesn't require trimming any plastic and also retains the Pathfinders 5000# tow rating. Top tip on install; If you are doing it alone use a floor jack to help lift it up and start a few bolts on each side by hand, then torque to 79ft/lb spec. Only reason not 5 star is paint quality is not very good. Its like the factory painted over dirt or welding residue in areas. 406800

This hitch was incredibly simple to install! I did run into a small problem with the weld nuts being full of rust and grime, but etrailer came through with a video on how to clean everything and get things working properly. Because of the weld nut issue, it took longer than expected, but after the cleaning, it was a breeze. As mentioned before, it is so much easier with two people also. I got everything prepped and then my wife came out to help hold the hitch up as I put in two bolts on the one side and then she was able to leave (took her maybe 2-3 minutes). 274929

Have used the hitch with a weight distribution and sway control system several times to tow a 4200 pound travel trailer and it has worked beautifully.

Very easy to do business with etrailer. Receiver hitch was delivered earlier than expected. Installed easily after cleaning the threads on my vehicle. They were rusted and corroded from being exposed to road elements. I purchased the receiver to use with a bike rack and it holds the rack very securely. It is low profile enough that it doesn't stick out or reduce clearance. Also, did not have to worry about making any modifications to accommodate the receiver. 358708

Received the hitch on time and good condition (no box damage either). Waited a few days to install due to weather/heatwave in our area. My Infiniti QX60 sits low, so to compensate and get a good height to install, I just backed in and let the back tires sit on the edge of the garage entrance (sloped driveway helps). Started to remove the 4 bolts that holds the tow hook, but they were super tight! I almost gave up, but had an idea to use the torque wrench and it worked! Then, propped up the hitch with a small step stool and screwed in one bolt on right side, then one on the left. When all bolts were screwed in, I used a cordless impact wrench to just lightly tighten then bolts. And finally used the torque wrench to tighten them to specifications (76 ft-lbs). Very happy with the install and hitch looks great in my QX60!! 302058

the hardest part was getting my teenager down to the garage to help. installation was extremely easy. remove the 4 bolts holding the tow bracket, hold the receiver up to the frame, and bribe a teenager help run up 2 bolts to hold it in place, then install/tighten up the remaining 4 bolts and you're done. entire installation took 20 minutes and could probably be done by a trained monkey. pictures are of the tow bracket (removed, does not get reinstalled), three of the 6 bolts that hold it in place, and the receiver in place. 106932

I have a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with the motion activated lift gate (MALG). The hitch fits nicely but it pushes up against the underside of the bumper slightly causing a some deflection, however no damage is done. No need to cut the bumper. The MALG works on occasion after several attempts (front kick, side kick, angled kick, jump kick, etc). I haven't found that sweet spot yet and still working on it. Overall, the installation was easy but requires two people. One to align the hitch while you bolt it in. I'm mainly going to use it with a bike rack and not so much towing. Final impression: Love it and recommend it. 544683

Very happy with my purchase of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder trailer hitch, 7 pin wiring harness and bracket.The videos really speed up the installation, especially the internal vehicle disassembly and wiring. Everything went to plan with no surprises. The parts are well engineered and good quality. I printed out the 7 pin connector schematic and used a 12 volt test bulb to verify functionality. I didn't break any of the plastic clips or skin my knuckles, which is a first for me. I purchased an inexpensive panel clip tool set, which makes removing the plastic trim a breeze. A screwdriver would work fine, but I needed an excuse to buy some more tools. I removed the blanking plugs from the external harness connectors before installing the hitch. It's easier to get at them. Don't pry the connectors off the body using a screwdriver. Use a pair of needle nose pliers on the reverse side of the clip to release them from the sheet metal. Excellent web site and videos make it easy to select the right parts. 476037

I ordered this for my 2015 QX60. Shipping took just over a week and everything arrived in good shape. I have to say, this is an awesome hitch with no drilling or bumper modification at all. My only comment would be is that the bolts used to mount the bumper are 19mm not 18mm as indicated in the instructions. The bolts I needed to remove the existing tie-down brackets were 18mm so maybe that's the confusion. I called the manufacturer and they confirmed the 19mm bolts. I propped up one side to make it easier for a one-man install and tighted things down with a traditional ratchet before breaking out the torque wrench. Kudos to etrailer.com for providing a great DIY hitch at a great price. I'm already for tailgate season now! 292848

to whom, My experience with the installation of this trailer hitch was excellent but for two minor problems. First, I ran in to some trouble getting the tow ring off. The bolts were very tight and not having an impact wrench made it tough to get enough leverage with my short socket wrench handle. I had to get a short pipe to fit over the handle to get enough leverage to brake the bolts loose. Second, balancing the hitch at on end on a bucket and lifting the other end to set the first bolt was a challenge. The exhaust pipe was also in the way for screwing in the other two bolt on that side. Other than these small difficulties I was totally impressed with easy of the installation that would have cost me $500.00 at the Dealership when I bought the SUV. Thank you-my wallet thanks-my wife thanks you and my ego thanks you. Warm regards, Tom AKA grampa Tappy 236624

My hitch arrived sooner than expected and was flawless. It came complete with everything needed to finish the job. One piece of advice would be to start a bolt on the drivers side to hold it in place. Then install a bolt (on the passenger side) closest to the muffler bracket. it will make your life easier. If the bumper fascia rubs on your new hitch you can remove the brackets (only two bolts per bracket) holding it in place and bend them up slightly, then reinstall the bracket. 275888

Ordered on SUN for 3-5 delivery... It was scheduled to arrive on WED... until snow storm hit midwest... Arrived on THU... still ahead of indicated time limit requested. Happy with the delivery time. * * * All items ordered came in the same box - hitch ball, wiring harness, and 7-way connector mount. Happy with the delivery of all parts. * * * Pricing of individual parts was not as much as I expected. We live in NC, so expedited shipping from MO isn't expensive either. * * * I am happy with the entire process of ordering and delivery through etrailer.com. I would recommend it to anyone who is preparing to experience the RV lifestyle or who needs a tow hitch on their vehicle for any other reason. Their sales and delivery departments are top-notch. Their videos are well made and to the point... Their education efforts appear to be a top notch as well; I have not seen a poorly made or much criticized video online from etrailer.com. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Until that time... 485572

Perfect fit for our 2017 Pathfinder. Kudos to etrailer.com for the software on the back end that so accurately matches their products to specific year, make, model, and trim. Double kudos for all of the videos... The reviews are great for showing the features of the products, answering questions before they're asked - way better than wading through FAQ's. And the installation videos... Wow! Walking through the installation videos is what made me decide to buy and DIY. I had thought of hitch installation as something that required drilling and cutting and welding. I had always thought "Take it to a place that does hitch installation, it's not a DIY project". After watching the video, I saw that, at least on our Pathfinder, it's quick, easy thing to do with the tools I've already got. It's installed and looks great. Thanks! 396967

Hitch arrived in 4 days. I could not be happier about the ease of installation. I had a helper, and it was done in 15 minutes. It took me longer to cut the box in half to lay on , than to install the 6 bolts. Very happy with the overall look of the hitch. In the past, I’ve had factory hitches installed at the dealership. They cost anywhere from 800-1,000 dollars. This time I decided to go aftermarket, and extremely happy with the hitch and ease of installation. 640716

Installed in 26 minutes. Super easy. All you need is a jack stand to hold one side up while you start the bolts on the other side. I installed this in my driveway, without even lifting the truck off the ground. 640127

I had a tough time chasing the weldnut holes in the frame as they were corroded. That took me about 3 hours. Torqueing, oiling, heating, backing out, starting over. eventually got the holes prepped. This was no fault of etrailer, though. Once the 6 holes were prepped, I was able to install the hitch in less than 15 minutes with the help of my son. The electrical wiring took about 2 hours. Not difficult, just time consuming with having to remove a number of interior body parts. I used the on line videos instead of the written instructions that came with the wiring kit. The video was precise and if you follow every step, you will have no problems. Everything worked perfectly. Doing this myself saved me over $300. 639333

Dealing with your company was a joy. I'm a 65 year old disabled women veteran and with a 59 year old women friend, we were able to install the wiring and hitch on my 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. It was very easy and if we can do it, anyone can. Thanks for your great service. 634197

The hitch was made for my car. No cutting or welding. My bike rack fits great and there is enough (height) clearance so the rack does not scarp when I back down the driveway out into the street. Great product! 621662

Exceptional product and service. Very fast delivery. Easy to install - the key was the video which gave detail of the slight vehicle modification required for installation. Top quality hitch, very sturdy. One of the installers liked it so much, he's buying one! 620364

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Comparison of Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers for a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
  • I prefer the Curt, part # C13309, over the Draw-Tite, part # 76031, for a trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. I like how the Curt hitch is mostly hidden behind the rear bumper and the only part you see is the receiver opening and safety chain loops. With the Draw-Tite you can see part of the crosstube under the bumper. Although, it doesn't require any fascia trimming and the price is better. I've linked a video from when we installed the Draw-Tite on a Pathfinder...

  • How to Mount a 7-Way Connector on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder with the Curt Hitch # C13309
  • If you were to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder then you would need to mount the Curt T-Connector # C56357 directly to your rear bumper fascia using the mounting bracket # PK12711U. To avoid this you can use the Curt Easy Mount Bracket # C58000 instead. Since the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76031 does sit below the rear bumper fascia you would be able to use the no-drill mounting bracket # C57202 along with the part # PK12711U. The Curt...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
  • For your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, I highly recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031. This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation. This particular hitch model does not require any fascia trimming at all - the hitch will bolt up to the frame and sit below the bumper without the need for any vehicle modifications. Fascia simply refers to the outside shell of a vehicle's bumper. I have...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
  • To set up your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder for towing, you are off to an excellent start. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 76031 is a confirmed fit. Then the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56281 will give you the trailer wiring you need. You will also need a ball mount and a hitch pin. I recommend the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 because it is designed for use with this hitch and will give you...

  • Upgrading a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder with 4-Way Trailer Connector to Tow a Trailer with Brakes
  • You're already off to a great start with the Draw-Tite hitch, part # 76031, and Tekonsha 4-way wiring harness, part # 118670, you already have on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. You're going to unplug the 4-way and instead use the replacement 7-way, part # 118267. The jumper harness with the relays that you installed before from the 4-way will stay in place and still be used by the new 7-way. Then you need a brake controller for the trailer's brakes. I recommend the Curt Echo, part...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2013 Infiniti JX35
  • Both the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 76031 and the Curt Class III # C13126 referenced in your question are confirmed to fit your 2013 Infiniti JX35. Between the two models, I do recommend the Draw-Tite # 76031. The crosstube design on the Draw-Tite drops down as it extends to meet the receiver, which in turn exposes it a bit more under the rear bumper of your vehicle. This is simply going to provide more mounting space for which to mount a connector bracket...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder That Has Discrete Appearance
  • We offer two brands of 2-inch Class III hitches for your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and one of these, the Curt # C13309, is designed with a concealed cross tube that lets the vehicle keep more of its stock appearance. The included photo shows you the Curt hitch installed. The other hitch, Draw-Tite # 76031, offers slightly easier installation but it will be more visible once installed. For a clean and discrete appearance the USA-made Curt hitch wins. The written instructions and a helpful...

  • Recommendation on a Class III Hitch for an Infiniti QX60 AWD
  • We have two Class III hitches that will fit your 2015 Infiniti QX60 AWD. Of the two hitches, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch, # 76031,over the Curt Class III Hitch, # C13126. The Draw-Tite Hitch has a higher towing capacity than the Curt hitch and our installers find the Draw-Tite hitch easier to install. The Draw-Tite hitch is custom-fit for your vehicle and will attach to your Infiniti's frame using already existing bolt holes. No drilling into the frame will be required. If...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Trailer Wiring For 2015 Infiniti QX60
  • For your 2015 QX60 I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 76031. This hitch has a higher capacity than the Curt # C13126, but you will be limited to the towing capacity of the vehicle. The trailer hitch is a Class lll and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. To install a trailer connector on your Infiniti I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118670. This harness simply plugs into the vehicle wiring located behind the rear bumper on your Infiniti. When...

  • 7-Way, 4-Way and Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Everything you mentioned will work great on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. The Draw Tite hitch part # 76031 is a confirmed fit, the wiring kit part # 118273 is the correct 7-way and then the # HM40975 can easily replace the socket of the # 118273 to give you both a 7 and 4-way. Your hands free lift gate will not be affected either. At worst you might have to kick to either side of the hitch opening.

  • Are Trailer Hitches Checked Before Shipping?
  • Before a hitch is shipped we do check for paint being chipped off and one is never sent with chipped paint so rest assured the hitch you get will leave our warehouse in perfect condition. For a hitch to use on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder I highly recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 76031 because it will not require any trimming of the fascia during installation like the option from Curt # C13309 will. You can power your trailer's lights by adding a 4-flat to your Pathfinder with the...

  • Can Foot Activation for LiftGate on a 2017 Infiniti QX60 Still be Used With Hitch Receiver Installed
  • Although you won't be able to just wave your foot under the back of your 2017 Infiniti QX60 to activate the hands-free liftgate function, you will still be able to easily activate it by performing a kicking motion (like you are kicking a football) to the left or right side of the trailer hitch receiver. The trailer hitch receiver that I recommend for your QX60 is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 due to the higher weight capacities (900 lbs TW and 6,000 lbs GTW)...
