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.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford Mustang - Draw-Tite

Today, on our 2006 Ford Mustang, were going to install part number 24747 from Draw-Tite. All right, this is what the hitch will look like once its installed on the car. Next, well give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 13 inches and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will about 5 inches. Now, Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the rear exhaust hanger thats closest to the bumper. Then, we can pull the exhaust out a little bit to remove the hardware for the hanger thats above the muffler.

To inaudible 00:00:43 by the bumper is pretty straight forward, two bolts to remove. Now, the hanger thats above the muffler, there are two bolts removed also. One on the side of the frame, which is relatively easy to get to and the other one is at the bottom of the frame, which is really close to the muffler. We do not have to remove the exhaust on the driver side; we only have to loosen up the exhaust of the passenger side. Well also have to open up the hole on the horizontal arm of the exhaust hanger, so that we can re-install the bracket later with the hitch installed.

With our bracket loose, well go ahead and mark it to show what material we had to remove, basically we have to remove enough material, about a quarter inch; its the same thickness as the hitch, so we can re-install the hardware for it. Okay, when we install the hardware, weve found that if you put the vehicle on a lift, that if you work away from the front facing towards back its a little easier to work around to install your hardware. Now, we can go ahead and install our hardware into the frame. Well use two small holes that are diagonal from each other on the side of the frame. Well take our bolt leader; well run it through the frame and out the access hole.

Well then install our block and thread on the bolt and pull them into position. Well go ahead and push the bolt and your bolt leader back inside, but well leave the rest of the leader hanging out. Well do the same thing for the hole thats on the bottom of the frame, on the side and then well go ahead and do the same thing over on the driver side. Also, on the passenger side we need to put the muffler hanger back into place. With our hardware installed on both sides of the vehicle we can go ahead and lift our hitch into position.

You definitely want to have an extra set of hands to help you do this. Then, push the hitch up as we are pulling our bolt leaders through. Then, the hanger will fit through a slot through the hitch. Well put all that together as we are pushing it up. Then, we will have our conical toothed washer and nut. Now, you want to make sure that the teeth on the conical toothed washer are always facing towards the hitch. Well leave them loosely installed until we get all our hardware installed. Now, before we tighten down the bolts we also want to make sure that the exhaust hanger hardware, well re-install as well. All right, with all our hardware installed we can go ahead and tighten them down and then torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. There you have it for part number 24747 from Draw-Tite.

Hitch installed well. Took Approx. 2 hours on my garage floor. What they don't tell you is you will need to open the frame rail holes larger to accommodate the hardware. Original factory holes are way to small. A drill and a metal hole saw got it done. From there the hardware goes in smoothly. I could only lower the right side muffler so it was a bit awkward but the hitch isn't even noticeable on the car. Fit and finish are very nice. I installed it with no assistance. This is the 4th hitch I have gotten from etrailer and all have been excellent with easy installs. Watch the video's, adapt what you can and good luck. The pic has the hitch cover installed, like I said you can't even see it. 187800

I will have to say that you thought of everything when designing this. It fit in great. The only issue I had was that I removed the muffler rather than bending the existing bracket or boaring out a hole. Ended up taking closer to three hours to install because of this. Very difficult to finagle the muffler back on once the reciever was in place. This is just the nature of the space available in the rear of a Mustang. My vehicle is a 2006 GT with no California package. Also, the wire leads used to feed the bolts into the tube worked better than I would have ever imagined. Delivery was within a couple of days. Asked a couple of questions on line from etrailer before ordering and got excellent prompt feedback from them. I would have given this top rating but the 1-1/4 inch reciever was so snug that I had to file the inside out a bit in order to mount the bike rack. 44427

Great Product Poor Instruction I'm sure this is a great hitch, like any other trailer hitch product (I've used/installed 3 in the past). However, I believe the instructions are poorly written. I had to remove the muffler completely and remove three muffler brackets. The bolt leaders are easy to install if you install them backward, THEN attach the bolt and washer. I found them "impossible" to install as instructed. Hardest part was reinstalling the muffler with the hitch in place. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this product and were planning a trip as soon as the hitch-mounted bike rack arrives. 1098

I installed the hitch myself and found that reading the reviews and checking out the pictures on the website were very helpful if not completely necessary. As in the other reviews, I would say that the instructions are not great. One other suggestion would be to provide a bolt to fit for the muffler hanger instead of asking to bend the hanger or expand the hole. Another suggestion would be to use jack stands to hold the hitch in place for installation. Doing that worked out great for me. The product seems solid and I'm looking forward to using it to haul my bike around! 51626

Harder to do right than the instructions indicate. The holes in my frame were not large enough to snake the flat plates and cap bolts through. The passenger side muffler rear bracket was impossible to maneuver into place after the hitch was raised in place. I adapted it to only use the vertical flange (which still needed adjusting to get rid of the 1/4 inch new offset). The product seems well fitting though, just hard to install cleanly without having seen one like it before. The exhaust on the Mustang is not very forgiving, whicj is the real problem. 104436

The Draw-Tite Sportframe Receiver Hitch that I ordered arrived in a timely manner, as promised. It fit on my Mustang, perfectly. I was amazed out how well it fit, especially after a professional trailer hitch installer, in my home town, said it couldn't be done. I would recommend the folks, and their products, at etrailer.com to anyone who needs the correct fitting towing package for their particular vehicle. They were polite and courteous, and know their customers needs. 178808

Great looking product - Nice fit and finish. Install was a challenge on my 2007 Mustang GT. Major problem on rear muffler mount on the passenger side (drivers side was no problem). Had to drop the muffler to get the rear muffler hanger bracket installed after the hitch was in place. It might have been possible to install the rear bracket at the same time as the hitch was installed, but I was beyond that point when the support was to be installed per the instructions. 21072

The hitch and wiring is great quality. The problem was in the lack of instruction in English for the hitch and no instructions for the wiring. There was a few wiring connectors missing also. I have installed 5 of these hitches so the mounting was not an issue for me. Might be for the first timer. For the wiring, I had to go on line to verify the wiring colors. A bit inconvenient for sure. I have conversed with a representative from the company about these issues. 124671

Everything arrived as promised. Had a local shop install the hitch, which went on "without a hitch" (couldn't help the pun). Using this for my high-end bike rack and thus far it is performing as I expected. 32791


Got my hidden hitch installed Saturday morning. Im very pleased with the fit and finish. I was worried how it would look on my mustang gt but its barely noticeable.Now I can safely haul a 2 mountain bike rack.Im very pleased.

Great product, Liked the price and free quick shipping, arrived in 4-days. Installation was not difficult, however the directions did not say which end of fish line to insert into the the frame, I found it very easy to put in the coiled end into top hole and thread the bolt on at the large hole in lower end of frame then pull nut and plate thru the top opening. all in all it worked great. Very neat looking to. 120541

It is an excellent product. It fits the car very well. Steven C. was very helpful on the phone. The product arrived to my home very quickly. I recommend etrailer.com to anyone wanting to order a trailer hitch receiver. The only negative is that the instructions were a little too vague for a non-professional mechanic, but I'm sure that a seasoned mechanic would not have any problem with the instructions. 171249

hitch has a couple good scratches recd duting shipping (i assume). the pin holes are not 'true' so i cant get the pin through the receiver and the ball mount. i assume that's a mfg issue. now that i've gone through all the work to get it installed; i'm not going to bother trying to return it. i'll find a smaller diamter pin or make one of the holes larger. shipping was prompt and the tracker was helpful. 22389

I received this hitch for my 2007 Ford mustang, and with my dad's help, I carefully installed it in only an hour. I use it to tow around my sailboat, it performs flawlessly! Overall, I'm very happy with the look of it on my car, the delivery of the hitch, the very durable construction, and easy-to-understand video instruction to go with it! Thanks etrailer for the great product! 293405

Ordered this hitch on Wednesday and it was delivered to my front porch Friday morning - and I didn't choose special delivery! Hitch was little too challenging for me to install, but etrailer hooked me up with a local company that did the installation. Etrailer's price was $20 less thant the local dealer would have charged for the hitch. Overall very good experience. 31182

The product was good and instructions were easy to follow. I did have an issue with disconnecting the muffler hangers (above the mufflers) on my 2007 Mustang GT. I was able to get the bolts in regardless. It would have been much easier to install if I had a lift and could have taken the muffler and short tailpipe off. I was able to install in about three hours. 31109

Item came very quickly with no shipping costs. Packaging was great. I had ordered from that other big big online company but had to return because it was not shipped properly and was damaged. Item fit perfectly, but installation was difficult. Had installed by mechanics. Great item. Order from etrailer for a good purchase experience! 214826

This DrawTite hitch was very difficult to install. It had to be installed by a 3rd party. We had wanted the Curt model for the 2008 V 6 Mustang; however, etrailer was out of stock. The Curt model did appear to be easier to install. I would not recommend the DrawTite model for a 2008 V6 Mustang unless you want it installed by an auto shop. 331240

by: John S05/18/2014

The ordering and shipping was very fast and efficient. The Hitch arrived in good condition. Installation leaves a little to be desired as the holes do not all line up correctly. However, this is a manufacturer issue and not an issue with ETrailer or their service. Overall, it was a good experience. 131161

by: Jesse07/09/2015

Excellent product! Once I widened the hole to have the bolts pass through, install was a breeze. If I would have had the correct tools it would have taken an hour to install but I had to improvise and use a drill bit to open up the hole. Hitch looks awesome and barely visible when not used. 210500

The purchase of this trailer hitch was easy and arrived in a timely manner. The fit was great. The only issue I had was with the stock muffler hanger on the passenger side which I cut to fit and no more issues. Look good, only showing what needs to be seen and used. Solid product! 230021

by: Matt05/29/2015

Fairly easy to install. Took me a little longer because one of the bolts really didn't want to get through the hole, but we figured it out eventually and got it in there. No complaints about the way it looks and the little American flag cover is pretty cool. 198513

This was a little confusing as to the muffler. I never got instructions with the hitch and on You Tube I only saw installation on a GT, not the 6 cylinder I have. This item does fit perfect though. 353094


Thanks for the feedback Tim. This hitch is confirmed as a fit for the 2005 - 2009 Ford Mustang. The installation instructions are linked to this page. Please let us know if you have any additional questions about the install, we would be happy to help.

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • What Trailer Hitches Will Fit a 2006 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • For the 2006 Ford Mustang GT, we list a couple possible trailer hitch options. First is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24747. This hitch will not accept the Invisi-Hitch, # 28451. And it will not fit the GT/CS (California Special), Shelby GT, or GT500. It is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver and has 200 pounds tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight capacity. If you are planning on doing some towing, you would need to add a ball mount and trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch # 24747 Installation Details, Drawbar, Hitch Ball, Lock, Wiring for 2007 Ford Mustang
  • To install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24747, on your 2007 Mustang, you may have to enlarge 1 hole using a drill and 3/8 inch drill bit. I have included a link to the installation instructions below. Step 2 mentions either drilling to enlarge a hole for the exhaust hanger, or, as an alternative, bending the exhaust hanger. To complete your towing set up, I recommend adding a drawbar, hitch ball, locking hitch pin, and trailer wiring. The recommended drawbar is the Sportframe Drawbar,...

  • Carrying 2 Bikes on a 2006 Ford Mustang with Rear Spoiler
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and she stated that none of the trunk mount bike racks will fit on a 2006 Ford Mustang if it has a rear spoiler. The spoiler will interfere with the safe mounting of the bike rack. In order to carry 2 bikes with your Mustang, you will need to install a trailer hitch, the most popular of which is # 24747. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. Then you can use a bike rack compatible with a Class I hitch like the Swagman...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2006 Ford Mustang GT
  • For your 2006 Ford Mustang GT I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24747 because it includes a hitch pin with clip which you will need to tow a trailer. You will also need a ball mount. This hitch fits GT models but not specialty GT models (GT/CS "California Special", Shelby GT, and GT500). So provided you have a regular GT model then the hitch will fit. In addition to the hitch, ball mount, and pin/clip you will need a properly sized ball for the coupler on the rental trailer. It will...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • A trunk mount bike rack is not recommended for the 2007 Ford Mustang convertible because it would not be able to secure to the vehicle properly. The best solution is to install a trailer hitch and use a hitch mount bike rack. Trailer hitch # 24747 will fit a GT convertible. I have linked a video showing installation for you. For a compatible bike rack I recommend the Swagman Trailhead # S63360. I have linked a video review of the bike rack as well. If you will be carrying any bikes...

  • The hitches available for the 2006 Ford Mustang are not available with a 2 inch hitch opening. The only option for carrying a 2 inch shank bike rack on the Mustang would be to use a Hitch Adapter 1-1/4 to 2 inch Trailer Hitch, item # HTAD. This adapter is not to be used for towing and will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch or vehicle whichever is lowest by 50 percent. This means that if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch and vehicle are 200 pounds then you will be...

The included ball mount uses a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. A compatible 2 inch diameter ball would be # 19258.

  • Can a 2 Inch Hitch Bike Rack be Used on a 2009 Ford Mustang With a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
  • There are not currently any 2 inch hitches available for a 2009 Ford Mustang. The best option would be to replace the bike rack with one made for a 1-1/4 inch hitch or if you will use the bike on another vehicle equipped with a 2 inch hitch, you can get a bike rack that is built for both sizes like part # S64670 or part # TH9028XT. The hitches available for your 2009 Mustang are all Class I, so you will probably be limited to 2 bikes depending on the carrier. You could use an adapter...

I am including a link to the installation instructions on the # 24747 hitch. The first step in the instructions say to remove rear exhaust hanger and the hanger above the muffler, this will need to be done on both sides on models with dual exhaust.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Mustang GT with Dual Exhaust
  • For your 2007 Ford Mustang GT we have the Draw Tite hitch part # 24747 as a confirmed fit. I can't tell if by aftermarket system you are referring to the exhaust system or even possibly a stereo? If the exhaust is aftermarket you may run into fit issues, but that is going to depend on how close the exhaust is to what comes factory on the car. This hitch is a pretty tight fit with the stock exhaust too so that might be an issue. The T2 Classic Part # TH9045 would fit this hitch well though.

  • Are Stabilizing Straps Required For Carrying Bike Racks With a Draw-Tite Hitch # 24747
  • You would not need to use stabilizing straps if you were to use a Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24747 to carry a bike rack on your 2009 Ford Mustang. As long as the bike rack and bikes do not exceed the tongue capacity of this hitch you would have no problem installing a bike rack into this hitch. I attached installation instructions for this product also.

  • Using Draw-Tite # 24747 Class I Hitch on 2006 Mustang to Carry Wheelchair and Tow a Trailer
  • The Draw-Tite # 24747 is a Class I receiver, which means it is capable of using accessories weighing a maximum of 200 lbs. This is the case for all the hitches available for your Mustang. Exceeding this capacity will damage the hitch and would likely damage the points on the frame where the hitch connects. I'm sorry to say that unless your wheelchair and its carrier have a combined weight less than 200 lbs, you won't be able to use that particular vehicle to carry it. Using your trailer...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2007 Ford Mustang GT
  • First, if you go through our fit guide for a specific year, make, and model vehicle, if you do not also select a specific trim level (if available) from the drop down menu it will show you all the hitches for all the trim levels. Some fit multiple trim levels so that is why you see it fitting GT and not GT. You can install a trailer hitch on your 2007 Ford Mustang GT as long as it is not a specialty GT model (GT/CS California Special, Shelby GT, and GT500). Rental places are not necessarily...

  • Bike Carrier Options for 2008 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • The one hitch we offer for your 2008 Ford Mustang V8 convertible, Draw-Tite # 24747, does not fit on the specialty GT models including your convertible. But we can still help you with a bike carrier option that will work fine on the GT. The linked page displays all trunk-mount 2- and 3-bike carriers confirmed to fit on your convertible Mustang GT. Many come from Saris, maker of the highly-rated Bones 2 rack # SA805, which uniquely, is offered in a nice range of color options. This...

  • Availability of a 2-Inch Trailer Hitch for a 2005 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • Only 1-1/4 inch Class I trailer hitches are offered for your 2005 Ford Mustang GT because of the 1,000 maximum towing capacity of your Mustang. The Draw-Tite # 24747 is currently the most popular and will both V6 and V8 models. I would still double-check your owners manual to find out the towing and tongue weight specifications. You don't want to exceed the tongue weight because it could damage your vehicle. Please note that you can only use Class I accessories, such as bike racks, cargo...

  • Will the Draw-Tite Part # 24747 fit a 2008 Ford Mustang with Flowmaster Exhaust
  • While the Draw-Tite part # 24747 has not been tested to fit your 2008 Ford Mustang with aftermarket exhaust like what you have there is a chance it could still fit. If your aftermarket exhaust retains the factory dimensions and routing (or close to it) then it could work. Check out the picture I attached to see what the factory exhaust looks like in relation to this hitch being installed. I did a little research online and was able to determine that most people were able to install...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2009 Ford Mustang GT500
  • None of our hitch manufacturers offer a hitch that's compatible with the 2009 Mustang GT. If you were wanting the hitch as a mounting point for a bike rack, we offer some trunk mounted bike racks like the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO that would be an excellent choice. The Raceway is the easiest to use trunk mount rack we offer. Its 4 retractable attachment cables allow the rack to be installed or removed in a matter of moments. The rack includes a security strap to secure the rack to...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Mustang GT
  • For your 2007 Ford Mustang GT there are only 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24747. 2 inch hitches are usually only used on larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks that will have higher towing capacities. I attached an install video for this hitch as well as a couple help articles on hitch sizes.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Ford Mustang GT
  • All of the trailer hitches available for your 2006 Ford Mustang GT are Class I hitches with a 200lb tongue weight capacity and a 2,000lb towing capacity. The Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch, # 24747, will fit the GT model, but it will not fit the specialty GT models like the California Special, Shelby GT and GT500. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. This hitch comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. To tow a trailer, you will just need a hitch ball, # 19258...

  • 2-Bike Trunk-Mount Carrier Recommendation for 2009 Ford Mustang Convertible Without Spoiler
  • Convertibles like your 2009 Ford Mustang can pose a challenge to fitting a trunk-mount bike carrier due to the absence of a rear hatch or roof to serve as a connection point for the rack's installation straps or cables. This makes a trailer-hitch-mounted bike rack a better choice for your Mustang. I double-checked with my technical contacts at Thule and Yakima, premier makers of excellent-quality bike racks, and I was advised that neither Thule nor Yakima recommends ANY trunk-mount racks...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2005 Ford Mustang GT
  • The correct hitch you would want for your 2005 Ford Mustang GT would be the Draw-Tite part # 24747. The part #24863 is for the newer body style so it wouldn't work for you. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. If you are looking for a bike rack to install in this hitch I would recommend the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This is a highly reviewed bike by our customers that would work very well for you. I attached a review video for this rack...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Ford Mustang
  • 2 inch hitches are reserved for vehicles that have higher towing capacities like SUVs and trucks. For your 2006 Ford Mustang you would be limited to a 1-1/4 inch hitch like the part # 24747. It's a shame you won't be able to use your nice bike rack designed for 2 inch openings, but if you would be interested in a new bike rack that is confirmed to fit this size hitch I would recommend the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670. This rack is very popular with our customers and has a ton of positive...
