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 - 2003 Jeep Liberty - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2003 Jeep Liberty, well be installing Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75128. Now, before we begin our install, here are some measurements to help you when selecting accessories. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 16-3/4 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the spare tire is 10 inches. Now, to begin our installation well go ahead and identify the six mounting points within the frame. These are all weld nuts.

There are three here on the passengers side as well as three here on the drivers side. With our mounting points located, well need to clean out the weld nut. Well use a spray lubricant and our nylon toothbrush here, part number 814092. With all six weld nuts cleaned out, were now ready to put our hitch into position. When installing the fasteners, well use a conical toothed washer with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch and the bolt.

It would be a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch up while we install the fasteners. Once we have all six fasteners installed, we can go ahead and tighten them down and torque them to specifications as indicated in the instructions. With all the fasteners torque, that will complete our install of Draw-Tite Hitch, part number 75128 on our 2003 Jeep Liberty.

Great post order customer contact from etrailer. One vendor related issue though, the box that the hitch was shipped in was a little flimsy. The staples had pulled out (someone downstream had thrown a few pieces of tape on it), and the hitch had broken through the cardboard in a few places scratching the paint. Install was a pain. I had to use a tap to clean the corrosion out of the holes in my '05 Liberty, as there was no way a bolt would thread in. Frankly it was almost like there were no threads at all. Very difficult to work a tap at these locations, as you don't have the throw to use a standard tap wrench. I had to use the bare tap and a little open end wrench, and it took multiple passes to clean out each nut insert. The worst insert to work on, the nut that sits above the tailpipe. As the video mentions, I had to pull the tailpipe out of the way with a strap to reach that one. Making it worse, the factory had welded this particular nut insert a little too close to the hole in the (unibody) frame. Also like in the video, the last bolt hole on the hitch frame (the one closest to the front of the vehicle) appeared to be out of line, almost like the Draw-Tite frame was bent. Unfortunately it was much further out than could be jostled back in place by hand, probably due to the aforementioned off center nut insert. I ended up using a big drift to lever the Draw-Tite frame into alignment, with multiple shims against the gas tank holding it out so I could get that bolt to start. Net-net, time consuming to install, but mostly because of the age, design, and construction of the vehicle. 38662

I purchased a trailer hitch for my Jeep over the phone. Within minutes of hanging up, my order detail had been emailed to me. Approximately 30 minutes later I received my tracking info for this purchase. Two days later, my hitch arrived in perfect condition and exactly as described on the website. Phone, communication and shipping were all excellent with this company.....very pleased. 552674

Prompt delivery via UPS at 45 lbs. The hitch fit good on my 2006 Jeep Liberty. Pretty easy to install with the right front lug nut difficult to start because the tail pipe is in the way. 114072

2003 Jeep Liberty I have used this receiver for almost 2 years now, and it is an excellent fit for the Liberty due to the spare tire location. You will need to use a minimum of 3" drop on the ballmount to clear the spare tire and have room for your coupler. 4" is better. You could use less drop if you have an extender. 1318

It is a high quality receiver at a reasonable price. Shipping was fast however mine was shipped in a damaged condition. It was bent and was not damaged in shipment. I had a body press and was able to straighten it out, however most would have to use a heavy hammer. They extended themselves in my behalf in contacting the manufacturer for bolt hole distance which helped me considerably in repairing the unit. I really did not want to return it. Would be a good idea to include bolt center distance in instructions if this is a frequent problem. I am not dissatisfied, but would encourage the company to inspect them prior to shipment. 430062

Great products and service. I was able to order everything I needed to add a tow hitch and ball to my 2006 Jeep liberty. Very fast shipping. They even called me to verify orders and availability. Clear and easy to follow installation instructions. I hauled an U-Haul trailer from Texas to Ohio without any issues. Even bought a trailer and use it frequently for hardware stoe runs. 350704

Had to do a little prying to get a couple of the bolt holes to line up with the frame, but other than that an excellent fit and easy installation. Do yourself a favor and get a 12mm X 1.75 tap to clean out the weld nuts on the frame, or make one by cutting a few grooves in a bolt of the same size. 38733

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Hitch Bolts and Cleaning for a Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I apologize for the trouble you are experiencing with your hitch. The bolts that are supposed to come with the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 75128, are 12mm x 1.75mm. It sounds like you received the correct bolts. Even if your vehicle has been on the road for only a year, it is very likely there is some dirt grime in the weld nuts on your Liberty. You may want to try cleaning out the weld nuts. I would first recommend soaking the bolt holes on your frame with...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Jeep Liberty
  • All of the hitches we currently offer for a Jeep Liberty will fit years 2002-2007 and no other vehicles. The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2004 Jeep Liberty is the Draw-Tite part # 75128. It's a Class-III with a 2-inch receiver. The maximum gross trailer weight is 5,000 pounds and tongue weight capacity is 500 pounds. If you plan on doing any towing, the wiring harness kit you need is the Tow Ready # 118524. Or if you already have a factory tow package then go with Hopkins custom...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2002 Jeep Liberty for Use with Weight Distribution
  • Here's what I would recommend. Since your trailer will be on the heavier side of the towing capacity of your 2002 Jeep Liberty you are going to want to be able to use weight distribution if at all possible. To accomplish that you can replace the Curt hitch you have with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75128 which is rated for weight distribution and would be a great solution. This way you don't have to return anything and you'll have the best towing setup available for your 2002 Jeep Liberty.

  • What Size are the Bolts to Install Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 75128 on a 2003 Jeep Liberty
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75128 for your 2003 Jeep Liberty uses M12 (12mm) bolts that thread into the matching M12 weldnuts inside the frame of the vehicle. The hardware comes with the hitch but if you need replacement hardware for the hitch use # RHK. Just enter the hitch number and manufacturer where indicated on the RHK page to get the correct hardware. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

  • The Included Bolts Will Not Fit in the Weldnuts on Trailer Hitch 75128 on a 2002 Jeep Liberty
  • We have had this question before on a 2002 Jeep Liberty. Basically, there could be some dirt and grime gumming up the works and getting stuck in the weld nuts. This would make them hard to insert the bolts into. You can try cleaning them out real well using a spray lubricant like WD-40 or PB Blaster. Let it soak for a while and then dive in with a wire brush, like the Battery Post and Terminal Cleaner - Wire Brush, # DW00254, and some elbow grease to clean out the weldnuts. Once clean,...

  • 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box Recommendation for Draw Tite Hitch on 2004 Jeep Liberty
  • I spoke with my contact Draw-Tite and he informed that the cross tube is 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch. Because of this I would recommend you use a 6 and 7-Way Trailer Connector Mounting Box # 18156. I attached installation instructions and an installation video for the # 75128 for you to check out also.

  • Availability of Ball Mount with 10 inch Rise for Class I Trailer Hitch on 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • The highest rise on a ball mount we currently offer that is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch is the Curt # C45028, which has a rise of 5-3/8 inches. Higher rise ball mounts are only compatible with higher rated hitches. If you need this additional rise to tow your trailer level with your 2005 Jeep Liberty, I recommend changing to a Class III trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max Frame # 75128. This will give you a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds and a towing weight capacity...

  • Best 2 Kayak Carrier for a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade
  • Your best bet in a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade is to obtain a hitch-mounted solution, such as a Malone Xtra-Light Trailer, part # MPG525G According to my research, the 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade is only rated for a maximum of 65lbs loaded on the roof, significantly limiting your options for carrying even one kayak because it can easily exceed your weight capacity from just the kayak alone. With a trailer like the Malone Xtra-Lite, you open up a wealth of options for carrying multiple...

  • Comparing Spare Tire-Mount and Hitch-Mount Bike Carriers for 2006 Jeep Liberty
  • Between a hitch-mount rack and a spare tire-mount rack I will always recommend the hitch rack since this type of bike carrier does not place any weight burden on the car's rear hatch. Instead, a hitch rack uses the vehicle's strongest part - its frame - to handle the weight of the loaded bike rack. Your 2006 Jeep Liberty can be fitted with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch or a higher capacity 2-inch Class III type. All available options are shown on the linked page. Some bike racks...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier for 4 Bikes on a 2004 Jeep Liberty with Rear Spare Tire
  • The Thule T2 bike carrier # TH9044-TH9046 is a great option for the 2004 Jeep Liberty. The Liberty will need to have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening to be able to use this carrier. It measures 19 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest rail on the carrier so it should clear the spare tire with ease. If you need a 2 inch hitch you can use # 75128. If the trailer hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening then you will need to use a hanging style carrier as there...

The comparable trailer hitch from Draw-Tite for your 2005 model is # 75128. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you to view.

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Tow a Trailer with a 2004 Jeep Liberty
  • To install the 7-way trailer connector on your 2004 Jeep Liberty you'll first need a 4-way connector. Use # 118524. It easily installs by plugging in behind both tail lights and includes a powered ModuLite to reduce the strain on your Jeep's wiring. Once you have a 4-way you can install a 7-way. If the trailer doesn't have brakes you can use an adapter like # 37185 and just cap off the unused wires. If you want to power the trailer's brakes then you'll need to install a fully functioning...
