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.

Unfortunately the install was more than we could manage and we were never able to get it installed. 559751

Nothing against etrailer, but I was really disappointed in the time spent installing the hitch. Using a die grinder to enlarge the last hole to feed all of the bolts in resulted in 3 trips to the hardware store because the steel from the frame rail kept chewing through bits. I'd really like to know what bit they used to open the whole quick enough to get the whole install done in 50 minutes. Once the hole was enlarged the install was very easy, but I spent 95% of the install time on the holes. I ended up using a sawzall with a metal blade to cut a slit in the hole to allow the bolt head to slide in. It took all of 5 minutes to cut small slits compared to what the directions recommended with a die grinder. 397926

Hitch is great, but instructions make you cut you frame, which is not needed. I'll be making a video on YouTube which provides an easier way to do it shortly. 477718

Purchased the Draw-Tite 2” hitch. Shipping was fast and free which was great. Brought it to my local hitch/muffler shop for installation. They installed it in about 40 minutes for a very reasonable rate. I bought this hitch so I can use my rack for my mountain bikes. I got tired of using the detachable trunk mounted racks. I would definitely buy from etrailer.com again. 578666

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Can I Tow a Trailer with a 2018 Jeep Compass
  • From my research the FWD model of the 2018 Jeep Compass is not rated to tow a trailer. The 4WD model is only if it has the 9-speed automatic transmission and even then is only rated up to 2,000 pounds. I would verify these numbers either with your owner's manual or with Jeep. With that being said there are trailer hitches available that fit. The Draw-Tite Class III, part # 76144, is my recommendation for a hitch. If you determine you can tow a trailer with your Compass you still...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Jeep Compass
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13363 is a custom fit for your 2018 Jeep Compass. It will require trimming the bumper cover trim and the heat shield. I've attached a photo of the instructions where it shows this, but have also linked the entire instruction details for you to view. If you don't wish to do the bumper cover trimming, then I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76144. This is a confirmed fit as well and still requires minor heat shield trimming,...

  • Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2018 Jeep Compass Latitude
  • I checked with Draw Tite and they list their hitch part # 76144 as a confirmed fit for your 2018 Jeep Compass Liberty so it would fit and work well.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack For 2018 Jeep Compass
  • There are not any trunk mounted bike racks currently fit guided from any of our manufacturers for your 2018 Jeep Compass. My recommendation is to use a hitch mounted rack using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76144 and the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack # TS02G along with locks # PTSCLK12. This rack will safely hold your bikes by the wheels for no frame contact, will allow easy loading of even the inner most bike, and will allow you to tilt the rack with bikes...
