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. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 1990 Ford F-150 - Draw-Tite

Today on our 1990 Ford F-150 were gonna be installing the Draw-Tite Hitch part number 75038. For this application, weve gone ahead and removed the spare tire. Now were ready to install the hitch. Its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you put the hitch in place. Well use a pair of clamps or vise grips to secure the hitch to the frame. Its got a total of 6 attachment points and each one of these will need to be drilled out before you can install your hardware.

Using the hitch as a template, well go ahead and take a pilot bit and start drilling out our holes. Now with all our pilot holes drilled out, we can go ahead and take the hitch down and continue drilling them out large enough to fit our -inch hardware. Now with all our fastening points drilled out, we can go ahead and start installing our hardware. Well be using the -inch carriage bolt and block for the forward two attachment point. Simply slide them in above the frame and drop them into position.

Each process we do here on the driver side, were gonna repeat identically on the passenger side. And for our rearmost attachment point, well be using a -inch bolt and spacer block with the round hole. For our rearmost attachment points, well be using the -inch French nut. Now its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch in place while you install your flange nut. Now with our forward fastener in place, well go ahead and install the rear fasteners.

Well be using the split lock washer and -inch nut. With all our hardware installed, we can go ahead and tighten it down. Now with all our fasteners tightened down, we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. With all our fasteners torqued to specifications, thatll complete the install of Draw-TIte Hitch part number 75038 on our 1990 Ford F-150.

I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of this unit and after checking around for weeks, I'm sure I got the best price available anywhere. The unit shipped out very fast and I received it within a couple of days, just in time to bolt it on. I will buy from etrailer.com again and highly recommend etrailer.com to others. And by the way, I found enough information on the different hitches on the website to make sure that I identified the hitch that was compatible with my vehicle before placing my order. Thank You! 402738

the product looks good and should function fine. All of my drawbars fit, so it should pull my trailer without any problems.I did,, however have to drill four of the six holes and remove my spare tire carrier. I will have to put a different style carrier on to correct the issue. Overall I say its a good product for a great price. Free shipping was a plus. I will more the likely purchase from etrailers again. the service has been great so far. 57158

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Options for 1995 Ford F350
  • We have many different hitches compatible with your truck. The best choice for you will depend on what you're wanting to tow. For lighter duty towing, I'd recommend the Class III hitch, part # 75038. The hitch has a 5000 lb towing/500 lb tongue weight capacity. For a heavier duty Class IV, the Curt # 14001 with its 10000 lb towing and 1000 lb tongue weight capacity would be a good choice. For a higher capacity, B & W offers a Class V with a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver opening, part # BWHDRH25122...

All of the hitches on the linked page are designed to fit the larger 37 inch frame. Our most popular trailer hitch option for your truck is the Curt Class V Receiver Hitch # C15300.

  • Can the Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper for a 1996 Ford F-150 Tow a 4,000 Pound Trailer
  • The Westin Fey Diamondstep Rear Bumper with installation kit # 20002-92230 is rated for 800 pounds tongue weight and 8,000 pounds gross trailer weight. However, you will need to consult the truck owners manual to determine the towing capacity of your 1996 Ford 1-50. Whichever is lower, the bumper or the truck, is the capacity you need to go by. Another option is to just install a higher rated trailer hitch, # 75038, which is rated for 800/8,000 pounds as well. But again you will go by...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 1979 Ford Bronco
  • It sounds like you are trying to determine if the distance from the mounting point to the hitch opening is large enough to clear your bumper. If you have a deep drop bumper you would want the Draw-Tite part # 41504. If you have a standard bumper you would want the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75038. The Reese Hitch part # 36025 you referenced would not be the correct hitch for you so I would not recommend it for you. I attached installation videos for you to check out.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a Modified 1988 Ford F-150, 250, or 350
  • On trailer hitch # 75038 it measures approximately 9-1/4 inches from the bottom of the truck frame down to the center of the receiver. The hitches for the 1988 Ford F-series trucks are designed for stock models. I can't say for sure if any would fit with the modifications to the rear of your truck. If the measurements for the hitch don't work out another option is to use a weld-on hitch and have it installed by a qualified professional welder. I have linked the weld-on hitches that we carry.

  • Does Gas Tank of 1996 Ford Bronco Have to Drop to Install Trailer Hitch
  • We don't have any fit notes for having to drop the fuel tank of your 1996 Ford Bronco to install a Class III hitch like the # 75038. I did some googling and found that one guy had to fishwire his hardware through the frame to get around the fuel tank but that's really not that difficult. For a bolt leader to do this you would need the part # 80101-1. I attached a help video on fishwiring for you to check out as well.

  • I do not have a confirmed fit for your 1992 Ford F450 with the Eagle Lift liftgate, but I spoke to my contact at Draw Tite and he informed me of a way for you to determine by taking a few measurements on your vehicle. He said that from the rear most mounting hole to the end of the receiver tube is 10-7/8 inches. So if you can find that hole and then measure out 10-7/8 inches and that distance is not too far for your lift gate to still work you should be good. My contact did say that...

  • Best Way to Approximate Ball Mount Drop Needed for a Trailer Before Hitch is Installed
  • When I said subtract an inch from the bottom of the bumper that was meant as a way to approximate where the top of the hitch opening will be once the hitch was installed. For nearly every vehicle the hitch ends up sitting right at the bottom of the bumper. Since it's hard to pick out a ball mount rise/drop without having the hitch installed first this was the best way to get a pretty good approximation. Depending on the suspension of the system you may get a 1/2 inch of sag on the suspension...

  • How to Pick Out Correct Ball Mount Rise/Drop When Using Draw Tite Hitch 75038
  • When the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75038 is installed on your 1995 Ford F-150 the top of the hitch tube will be right underneath the rear bumper. To compute about how much rise/drop you would need from a ball mount you will basically need to measure from the bottom of your rear bumper down to the ground and subtract about an inch from this measurement. You will then need to use the jack of your trailer to level it and then measure from the ground to the bottom lip of the coupler. Whatever...

  • Dimension and Installation of a Hitch on a 1995 Ford F150
  • The distance between the mounting holes from left to right when measured on center is 35 inches. You will want to push the hitch as far to the front of the vehicle against the rivet. To center the hitch on the frame rails you would want to find a reference point on both frame rails and then make sure that the hitch sits an equal distance from that point on both side of the vehicle. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

If your truck has either of these bumpers then the hitch will fit so long as your frame width is NOT 34-inches. Drilling is required and the instructions are linked. I also included a link to a video that shows installation in a 1990 F-150. If you also need a 4-pole wiring harness you can use # 118316.

I've linked a video of the hitch being installed onto a Ford but the process will be the same. Also if you need a wiring harness # 118317 is the correct harness.

  • Is there a Bolt-On Hitch Receiver for a 2004 Dodge Dakota to be Able To Carry Bikes
  • Thanks for sending us a picture. Makes a difference! What I recommend is going with the Curt 2 bike bolt-on rack # C18011 because it will mount to any ball mount or step bumper and can hold 2 bikes with a maximum weight of 70 pounds. Unfortunately the Curt ATV ball mount adapter # C45006 you referenced will not work because it will bend. If you end up going with a trailer hitch, I recommend the Class-III Draw-Tite # 75038 because it has a 500 pound tongue weight capacity and it's...
