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

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 - 2018 Nissan Pathfinder - Draw-Tite

Speaker 1: Today in this 2018 Nissan Pathfinder we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class Three Trailer Hitch Reciver, part number 76031.Here's what our hitch looks like installed. As you'll notice this hitch sits nice and tight up against the rear fascia. But the end of the receiver doesn't stick out past it. So the floating cargo door hatch area, we don't have to worry about running our leg into it.This hitch does have one unique feature that other hitches don't have, which makes this a great candidate for towing trailers. We have this electrical bracket that's welded on to the receiver which serves as a mounting point for any of your wiring harnesses that you may have.On the side of our receiver you'll find two pin holes. The larger diameter one, that's your five eighth industry standard hitch pin hole, they use a pin and clip to secure your hitch knotted accessories.

You can pick up one of those separately on our website as part number PC3.The smaller diameter one closest to the rear of the vehicle that is for our J-Pin stabilization device. And what that does is help alleviate some of the annoying shake, play and rattle out of what's inserted in your receiver.Welded on to the bottom of our receiver is our plate style safety chain loops. And these have a really large opening. So if you have a large diameter safe chain hook like this one, you can easily clip on and clip off.On the back of our receiver we have this nice collar that's welded on. Helps give a nice, finished look and also does help improve the strength of the receiver opening.This hitch features a nine hundred pound max tongue weight rating.

Which is the amount forcing down. And a six thousand pound max reverse trailer weight rating. Which is the amount it can pull. It does support the use of weight distribution and if your using now your trailer, just one thing to keep in mind the rating stay the same, they don't change at all. And as always, you want to make sure you consult with the owners manual of your Pathfinder and not exceed what the vehicle rated for.

Go by whichever number's less.Now for a few measurements, better assist you in any hitch mounted accessory you may need. So just a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier, you're looking at about 14 and a half inches from the ground, to the top of the two inch receiver opening. And about four inches from center of the hitch cut hole through most part of the back bumper.Now that we've gone over some features, I'd like to point out that some of customers have had issues getting this installed on the driver side of the vehicle. Because the charcoal canister for evaporated emissions systems is slightly in the way. We'll show you how to get around that with some very simple modifications and how to get the hitch installed.To begin our install we're gonna locate ourselves on our driver side of our vehicle.

Our vehicle has a factory tow hook, we need to remove it. In order to remove this lug four, 18 millimeter bolt, well two, they go in horizontally in the side. And then we have two that go in vertically on the bottom.Now we'll point out our attachment points. We're looking at the passenger side. The driver side is the same way, just a mirror image. We'll have three weld nuts in the frame. Two closer together towards the front and the one by itself towards the rear. It's a good idea to take some spray lubricant go inside the threads and just wire brush, which we have avail be on our website as part number 814092, and clean out the threads. This will remove any loose debris or possible corrosion that's inside. And we'll do this for all of our attachment points.Our hitch will be secured with identical hardware at all six mounting locations. We'll have a bolt, a lock washer and a flat washer. Now in some instances, this plastic shield around your charcoal canister may interfere with the hitch on the driver side of the vesicle. If you just cut off the small corner right here, you'll get a little bit more room and the hitch should fit into position a lot better.Now with an extra set of hands we can raise the hitch into position. Go over the exhaust on the passenger side and then raise straight up on the driver side and we'll secure it into place. Once I get one bolt hands tight it'll be a lot easier to put the rest in. With all the hardware now started, we can tighten it down using a 19 millimeter socket. Now we'll torque all our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions.And that completes our look at and showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Class Three Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76031 on this 2018 Nissan Pathfinder.

Great product. Easy to install. It is little heavy so you’ll need someone to help. Happy with my purchase. Got the hitch within the expected delivery date. It fit perfect to my Nissan Pathfinder. I used it over the weekend to attach my bike rack and it held up as expected. 725008

Great hitch, very solid. Fits my Kuat bike rack perfectly. Much heavier/sturdier feeling than some of the other hitches I’ve installed. Install is very simple, took me about 30 mins by myself. Tip- prop up driver side of hitch with a jack, thread 1 or 2 bolts on the passenger side then get all the bolts on and tighten. Because of the muffler it’s much easier to line up and start on the passenger side of the vehicle. 688383

Put on a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder and didn't have any issues related to the hitch. The weld nuts were severely rusted so I had to use a tap and clear them out which was a pain (thanks midwest living). Other than that it's a heavy duty hitch. I was able to install it myself with using 2x4's to hold the hitch at the right height while putting the bolts in. I've towed quite a few things over the past year and never had an issue. 674021

I purchased a trailer hitch for my Pathfinder. It was so easy to mount, I did it myself in about 30 minutes. Everything I needed was included with the hitch, the right size and number of bolts and good instructions for assembly. A no-brainer since newer vehicles come pre-drilled for mounting hitches. 659745

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

I have used a few different trailers over the past year and felt confident hauling each one. I have had no issues with this receiver. I am confident it will last for years to come.

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

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.

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

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

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

Fits nicely and looks great. Only minor issues were a couple of bolts with effects on there. Simple fix if you look to make surgery threads are clean. Can't wait to take the seadoos to the lake and mountains while riding comfortable. 563258

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I recently bought this receiver from Etrailer, I attempted to create my own order online, but instead of possibly making a mistake I called them. They were absolutely helpful in making my order. About 3 days later the receiver and light harness arrived at my door step. It only took me about 1.5 hrs to install the hitch and lighting harnesses. With following the very detailed videos that etrailer has on installing the product it made it very easy to understand what I needed to do. I would definitely use etrailer again for all my towing needs. Thanks etrailer. 719563

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! First finding a trailer hitch receiver for our 2019 Pathfinder was difficult. Other well known companies either did not have it or they wanted to charge us $300.00! We went online, found etrailer.com and got a GREAT deal, far more less expensive and in stock! We ordered the trailer hitch on a Tuesday evening after work and it arrived at our front door Thursday morning. The trailer hitch was an exact fit, no extra drilling or tweaking to make it work, and did not have to cut trim as previously thought. It took us 51 minutes to install however, it was a teaching moment for our 12 year old son, and that included removing the tow hook. Our overall experience with etrailer was wonderful and stress free. We will always recommend and use etrailer in the future. Thank you etrailer! 703017

Hitch is ok- does the job. Biggest complaint is that the powder coating on the receiver is flaking away leaving RUST that is low on the outside, (not a good look!)as well as traveling inside the opening. The only thing I even use the hitch for is a hitch hauler which has been hooked up maybe 15 days total over the year. So... ok hitch- looked good for a minute. 692050


Comments

To keep your hitch looking great and to help prevent the spread of rust, we recommend using a rust-inhibiting black spray paint to touch up any rust spots starting to develop on your trailer hitch. I have also linked a help article on rust prevention for your convenience.

The product was great. I had a little bit of trouble installing myself but I got through it in about 45 min. It works great. I want to buy the trailer hitch. Tow lights next. I normally use the hitch to take my bikes out with the family but next mission will be to tow a pop up trailer 665373

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Pathfinder Without Tow Package
  • For ease of install, the trailer wiring harness I highly recommend for your 2019 Nissan Pathfinder without the tow package is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C56281 because it does not require any type of splicing into your Nissan's wires and does not need a direct connection run to the battery, which is often the trickiest part of a harness installation. This harness will require the installation of a couple relays (as you can see in the accompanying photo) but remains...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Towing Components for 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Without Factory Tow Package
  • Since you won't have the factory tow package in your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, I recommend using the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Connector # HM11143690. This harness plugs into your Nissan Pathfinder's wiring, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness. Once you've plugged in the connector, run the red hot lead up to your car battery. Connect the included...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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)...

  • 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.

  • Can the Curt # C13309 Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder with Liftgate Sensors
  • Yes, you can install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13309 on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder even though it has the kick liftgate sensors. The only potential difference is that you may just have to kick to the left or right of the receiver instead of just waving your foot beneath the bumper. There is some minor fascia trimming that needs to take place and the driver side tow hook will need to be removed to install the trailer hitch, but Curt has only rated the install a 5 out of 10 for...

  • Recommended Parts Needed for Towing with a 2018 Infiniti QX60

In addition to the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 that you referenced we have the Tekonsha T-One # 118670 that installs in your 2018 Infiniti QX60 without having to splice any wires. I am attaching an installation video on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder for you to get an idea of how the installation will go. Since this video is on a different vehicle you will want to check out the linked installation details for your application. If...

  • What Tools are needed to Install the Draw-Tite # 76031 on a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
  • To install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder you will need the following tools per the installation instructions: Safety Glasses Ratchet 18mm Sockets Torque Wrench 6" Socket Extension Although it would seem like you could just tighten the bolts down and get on the road, Draw-Tite has done extensive testing and found that the bolts need to be specifically torqued to 76 ft-lbs to secure the hitch. Anything less could come loose...

  • No Drill/Trim Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Infiniti QX60
  • With a Draw Tite hitch like the part # 76031 that fits your 2018 Infiniti QX60 there will be no drilling and if there is an evaporation canister present you'll have to manuever around it while installing but it does not need to be removed. The clearance will be tight though. The installation instructions do not list trimming the bumper fascia as one of the steps of the hitch installation either. This hitch when installed will sit below the bumper and will not interfere with any of...

  • Will the Bumper Fascia on a 2017 Infiniti QX60 Need to be Trimmed When Installing Draw-Tite Hitch
  • When installing the Draw-Tite Class III Custom-Fit Trailer Hitch, # 76031, the bumper fascia will not need to be trimmed. The installation instructions do not list trimming the bumper fascia as one of the steps of the hitch installation. This hitch when installed will sit below the bumper and will not interfere with any of the body molding of the vehicle. As for installing this hitch on a lease vehicle, I recommend checking with the dealer that you purchased the car from to see...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2014 Nissan Pathfinder
  • To add a 4-flat to your 2014 Nissan Pathfinder I recommend going with the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118670 which you'll only need to plug into your Pathfinder so there will be no type of splicing needed. You can see exactly how this harness is installed in the video I've linked for you. To mount the harness to your Draw-Tite # 76031 hitch you can use Mounting Bracket # 18144. If you are going to be towing, I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your...

  • Ground Clearance When Installing Draw Tite Hitch on 2016 Nissan Pathfinder
  • When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 76031 on a 2016 Nissan Pathfinder like yours we found that from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground measured 14 inches. So from the bottom of the hitch it would be more like 11-3/4 inches.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder
  • The most reliable way to determine if you have the tow package is to contact the dealer you bought the vehicle from with the VIN and they will be able to tell you. If you still have the window sticker for the vehicle it should also be listed there. The good news is that for trailer wiring it really doesn't matter for your 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. The Tow Ready wiring harness part # 118670 that you referenced will fit your vehicle either way...with or without the tow package. For a...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Given the choice between the Draw-Tite and the Curt receiver hitch for your 2013 Pathfinder, I'd lean more toward the Draw-Tite hitch for the following reasons: -The Draw-Tite # 76031 has a capacity that's higher than the other hitch. You'll be limited by the capacity of the vehicle, but the higher capacities indicate that the hitch might be a bit more durable in the long run. -The Draw-Tite hitch is a less expensive by a few dollars. I don't mind paying a bit more if there's a difference...

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch 76031 Fit 2017 Infiniti QX60 And Interfere with Backup Camera
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 76031 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Infiniti QX60 and is compatible with the backup sensor and camera. If you were towing a trailer or had a bike rack installed in the hitch though that would most likely cause the sensor to go off and would block most of the camera's view.

  • Will Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Block Liftgate Sensors on 2017 Infiniti QX60
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 referenced in your question is indeed confirmed to fit both your previous 2014 Infiniti QX60 and your new 2017 QX60. When the hitch is installed in your new vehicle, you will still be able to operate the liftgate features on the vehicle. You will simply need to pass your foot to either side of the hitch receiver so the sensors can detect your movement. In order to install your existing hitch onto the vehicle, I recommend using new...
