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.

This Draw-Tite hitch is both high quality and easy to install. The 6 3/8” extended receiver brings the 2” opening closer to the edge of the spare tire than any other hitch I’ve seen.

This is a great hitch! Been using it for the last year with absolutely no problems. We towed our 20 ft camper home from Ohio to Florida thru the mountains and to a few more places around the state. Since it’s installed on my 2016 Jeep Wrangler, it’s also been used to pull stuck vehicles out of the sand at the beach. It’s worked great thru every situation. Best investment I’ve ever made.

Very easy to install! I believe etrailer rating the difficulty as a 3 out of 10. I would say more like a 1 or a 2. I have a 2020 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. The video on the etrailer site for this hitch used a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which had an extra piece that my jeep does not have. Additionally, the instructions that came with the hitch noted that I would have to lower the jeep muffler to install the hitch. This was not necessary.

I think this hitch will serve my purposes well going forward.

I used this hitch for a 3000 mile, three-month trip with several stops during early 2023. This hitch was for a bike rack to carry two bikes. No complaints, worked well.



by:

Another successful order and install from etrailer.com! Always fast shipping and excellent installation guide videos! Installed on 2021 JL Wrangler EcoDiesel.

Tip for EcoDiesel specific install -- drop the DEF tank a bit to access the bolt holes easier!



by:

Great hitch! Seems to have been constructed well and has a great finish on it. Installed easily on my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport in less than an hour. Tricky part was getting the nuts started on the bolts. I used a magnet for this part. I was also able to do the install without having to drop the exhaust, which an installation video recommended doing. Item was packaged well and delivered when anticipated.



by:

Best price, perfect fit, easy installation (the videos are excellent).

Easy to install

Install was as easy as taking 20 minutes out of my lunch hour to bolt this thing to the back of my Jeep. It's been on there a year, I have used it a LOT, on pavement and off road, and it still looks new. Big thumbs up.



by:
2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

While the hitch itself is perfect and as described, there was little left of the shipping box when it was delivered. The hitch was not bent, but I am glad the bolt kit was in a sealed plastic bag as we were lucky for it to still be in the badly ripped and opened shipping box. When shipping something of this weight, a heavier duty shipping container is in order.

Great hitch for the money. It fit my Wrangler JL with no issue, other than it was a little tight to get it fitted, nothing a rubber mallet and a little patience couldn't solve. It performs great and is a lot more cost effective than the factory hitch in my opinion.

did a great job thank you

Excellent. Meets expectations

Order arrived early and is as described. Pleasure doing business.

2018 Jeep Wrangler

Air lift installed on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JKU with a 4” lift. Alison B put wanted to make sure I got the right bags and put me in touch with Air Lift who helped me get the correct bags. It was easier and quicker to remove rear springs and install the bags, just remember to apply lubricant to help with installation. Alison B was great to work with and extremely helpful in making sure I got the right parts. I have done business with etrailer in the past and will continue to use them in the future.

Thank you made oder very easy !

2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Bought this for my 2020 Jeep JLU so I could utilize a bike rack. Received the hitch very quickly and Installation was a breeze. Works as expected.

Easy to follow instructions and hitch is as described. I’ve had it on my Jeep a year with no problems. Installed myself in about 2 hours. If that seems like a long time, I’m 120lb chick working on gravel by myself.



by:
2023 Jeep Wrangler

Exactly as described. Installation was very easy and took me less than 10 minutes.



by:

Easy to install and solid product. Video matched product and made install easy. Receiver extends far enough for accessories (glide away bike rack and cargo carrier). My selection was based on a etrailer video which was useful and informative.

Install notes: Video and included instructions conflict slightly on disposition of spacer plate and bolt selection (original jeep bolts vs those provided with the hitch). and torque specs for bolts. I went with the video for everything I could which was most helpful except for lack or torque spec guidance. Also the specific draw-tite part number in the video comparing hitch options for 2021 jeep has been discontinued and should be replaced with this part number.

Great hitch! Use it for fishing rod holder and ice chest as I surf fish the beach!



by:
2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The Draw-Tite Hitch, when I opened the box, arrived bent on one side. I debated to return it however I was with some mechanic friends who said let's just bend it back and put it on. Once we were able to get it on, eliminating the big welds on the rear beam for the bumper, it installed perfectly. I'm sure I wil now be happy with the product.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a FAQ that can assist with moving the side brackets of the hitch back into alignment.

Once I ground down the high weld ridge it slipped on easily. Used the two existing bolts that went into a bracket with welded nuts and two bolts that came with the hitch. Torqued everything to 65 and it’s good to go.
Took 3 hours because of the grinding.
Very nice hitch. Installed on a new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Plug in hybrid.



by:

Very sturdy hitch. Exactly what I needed. Even a place to mount wiring bracket.



by:

Quick shipping, good instructions and easy install



by:

Pretty straightforward and works great.
