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.

Really easy to mount. Be sure to put the plug bracket on before you install the hitch. Mine is so close to the bumper that you'd never get the screws in after you bolt the hitch to the truck. I do wish the hole in the plug mount was a little bigger. The stock Dodge plug won't fit though the hole. I had to route the wiring around the side of the mount to be able to plug it into the stock outlet. 421067

Received the hitch as per the delivery date promised. Since this was an upgrade for my truck, I had the old hitch removed prior to delivery. When UPS dropped it off I went to work installing it. Within an hour it was installed and I made a mounting bracket for the electrical connector. The bracket had to be painted, so it will be installed tomorrow. I would not hesitate to order again from etrailer, or to recommend you to any one else. As soon as I load my truck camper and measure for the extension to pull my trailer ,it will be ordered also. Then I will be able to take my truck camper and trailer when I want to go somewhere!!!!!! Thanks again for the service, when all is completed I will send photos. 38371

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 2WD with 8 Foot Bed
  • We don't have any 3 inch trailer hitch receivers. Those only come with the newer large trucks as a factory option, but there aren't many ball mounts that are made to fit them at this time. All of the aftermarket manufacturers stick with the 2-1/2 inch receiver opening for even the largest towing capacities. For your 2000 Dodge Ram, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2-1/2" # DT45513 is a confirmed fit. This however does not have the largest rated towing...

  • Recommended Extra Long Ball Mount For 2001 Ram 3500 With 11.5 Lance Camper
  • For your 2001 Ram 3500 Dually 4x4 with Lance 11.5 camper, I recommend the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232. This extra long ball mount will allow you to put the hitch ball center 15-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch receiver. It will give you 11-1/4 inches from that hitch pin center to the closest edge of the ball platform piece. This is rated for 6,000 lbs. I recommend the # 63845 for a 2 inch hitch ball or # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. If...

  • 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Allowing 2002 Dodge Ram to Use Long Hitch Extension
  • Going to a larger 2-1/2 inch hitch would be a great option. This will allow you to use the extension which allows you to tow a trailer with the camper you have installed in the bed of your truck. For a hitch then you would want the Draw Tite hitch part # DT45513 which is a confirmed fit and would work well with what you are looking to do.

  • Can 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Short Bed Tow 7K Trailer with Upgraded Trailer Hitch
  • You should be okay to tow a 7K trailer with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT45513 installed on your 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 with the 6-1/2' bed but it would be best to verify this in your copy of the owner's manual. I tried looking this spec up in the owner's manual but I wasn't able to find anything. If you have your copy of the owner's manual handy you may be able to find it. If not you can still verify your max towing capacity by finding the info tab on your driver's side door...
