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. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

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.

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

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.

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.


Comments
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.

I mounted this hitch on my 2021 Wrangler JL. Expanded bolt holes on the back flange of the hitch made installing it easier without having to lower my muffler.



- DT78MR
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.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver to Fit a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon Edition
    If I'm not mistaken the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon uses the MOPAR off-road bumper # 82213654. I've attached a picture for you to compare. If this is the case then the Draw-Tite # DT78MR will work just fine on your Jeep. I've attached the install details, where I got the picture from. You'll need to remove some hardware and a spacer plate in order for the receiver to fit behind your bumper. The hitch fits onto a cross member and uses the existing holes in it. There's...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Jeep Wrangler
    For your 2019 Jeep Wrangler I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # DT78MR because it features the highest weight capacity available for your Jeep. This particular Class III hitch has a 4,500 pound towing capacity and a 675 pound tongue weight limit (which is almost double that of the other options available for your Jeep). This simply points to a stronger unit that will do a great job of holding up over time. The receiver will stick out just a bit more too which makes it easier...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With Standard Bumper
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2017 Wrangler Unlimited is part # DT78MR. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. This hitch does not require any drilling when installing and if you have tow hooks they have to be permanently removed when installing the trailer hitch. I recommend this hitch as it has a higher capacity and fits more accessories.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Provide Clearance for Thule Apex Bike Rack
    The Draw-Tite # DT78MR is going to be your best option as it has the longest receiver of all the hitches that fit your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The center of the Draw-Tite's hitch pin hole is going to be roughly an inch past your Jeep's bumper. The Thule Apex TH9025 is just over 9" from the center of its hitch pin hole to its upright bar, so you will have approximately 10 inches from your bumper to the back of the Thule Apex with this set up. I recommend measuring to ensure that amount...

  • Design Change Hidden Hitch # 75515 and Current Draw-Tite # DT78MR Hitches for a 2017 Wrangler
    Yes, there was a design change with the nuts that were originally welded to the Hidden Hitch, part # 75515, to the current Draw-Tite, part # 76104. The nuts are no longer welded to the hitch itself but are still included. The newest version of this hitch it sht # DT78MR. I've linked an install video of the # 76104 and the # DT78MR for you to check out the newest improvements.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2020 Jeep Wrangler With Mopar 82213654 Bumper

The Draw-Tite hitch is an easy bolt-on installation and is compatible weight distribution as well if your trailer has a weight distribution system.

    I would be happy to help! I reached out to my contact at Draw-Tite and to install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT78MR you were looking at on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited EcoDiesel you will first gently pull down on the diesel canister to get extra clearance. You will then need to use an 18mm open end wrench to hold the bolt head on the back of the hitch while you torque down the nuts on the front of the hitch with an 18mm crows foot wrench you can pick up from a local auto...

  • Is There a Class IV Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited EcoDiesel

This will exceed the towing capacity of the vehicle so there is no need to develop a higher rated option as you will be limited to the vehicle rating before the hitch anyhow.

  • What is Weight Distribution in Relation to a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Draw-Tite Hitch
    The maximum tongue weight with weight distribution for the Draw Tite Trailer Hitch # DT78MR is 675 lbs. Weight distribution is designed to distribute the weight more evenly to all axles of the tow vehicle and trailer. Since the weight is carried more level you will often see a second weight capacity for hitches and vehicles if they use a weight distribution system. Typically weight distribution systems are recommended when the trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the weight of the vehicle....

    The Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch # DT78MR will fit a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited without the factory tow hook. It will use the four factory holes on the rear crossmember. So the factory tow hook does have to be permanently removed for the hitch to be installed on your vehicle. All of the hitches I have that fit your vehicle will install the same way, so to put a hitch on your 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you will have to remove the factory tow hook.

    Any trailer hitch that can safely be used with a weight distribution/sway control system (WD/SC) will indicate this capability on its safety/warning sticker. You cannot use such a system unless the hitch manufacturer indicates that this is permissible, such as with hitch # DT78MR. Most times a 2-inch hitch will be rated as Class III, not Class II. The Class II hitches we offer are all the 1-1/4-inch size. On the linked page you can see all aftermarket hitches in both sizes and classes...

  • Can Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 76104 for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Handle Black Widow Motorcycle Carrier
    Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT78MR is rated for 675 pounds tongue weight so it by itself is more than capable of handling the Black Widow motorcycle carrier which weighs around 60 pounds or so. However, the tongue weight capacity of the 2014 Jeep Wrangler will be either 200 pounds or 350 pounds depending on which version of the Wrangler you have.

  • Receiver Tube Length of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for Jeep JL
    I don't know exactly how far the Draw-Tite hitch # DT78MR is going to stick out from your bumper but I can tell you that it's exactly 6-3/8 inches from the front of the mounting plate to the opening. The mounting plate itself is right at 3/4 of an inch thick so if you measure roughly 7 inches from the frame of your Jeep out past the bumper you can see where the opening of the receiver tube will be.

  • Will the Draw-Tite Hitch # DT78MR for 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Increase my Tongue Weight?
    The short answer to this is, no, adding this hitch will not safely increase your tongue weight capacity. Since the tongue capacity for the vehicle is 350-lbs, upgrading to a hitch like the Draw-Tite Max Frame # DT78MR won't allow you to carry more weight on your hitch because it's rated for 675-lbs. You are always limited to the lowest rated component in your towing setup, which in this case is the Jeep. Even though this won't give you a higher tongue weight capacity, what it will do...
