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.

Ramon stands CORRECTED? The Bolts for the Support to the sway bar were not easy to romove. Thank God for Power Tools. Also the Upper TABS needed to be hammered back into place. END RESULT THE UNIT IS MOUNTED & READY FOR USE!!!!!! ONE last thing: The diagram was a bit faded to say the least. 597790

This front receiver mount was very easy to install. Made of heavy duty steel. It only took about 45 minutes to install using my motorcycle lift to raise and hold it in place was a great help. 376852

The parts were perfect for our truck (1998), it fit perfectly. It arrived quickly. We are going to attach a bike rack to it. Thank you, enjoyed doing business with this company. 539092

The hitch was very reasonably priced and arrived quickly. It appeared to be of stout construction and is fairly heavy. Installation was straightforward with the four lower mounting points using existing bolts welded in the frame (sway bar mounts), and the upper attachment points using existing holes (had to remove/replace the bolts that were there). All necessary hardware was included. The hitch fit very well, it was no problem getting the holes to line up. I was concerned it might hang down too far or protrude too much but it does not at all; a clean looking installation with the lower bumper trim modified as in the pictures. I’m very pleased with the hitch, and the service from etrailer has been excellent. Thank you. 554426

I haven't yet installed the product but I did want to comment on the service--Outstanding! My order was processed promptly and shipped quickly. I received an email notifying me of the shipment and tracking information and a follow up after delivery to make sure all was well. Frankly, I was surprised. It seems as we move more and more towards e-commerce, the service-after-the-sale has been diminishing. Kudos to etrailer.com and George J. for demonstrating that some companies are still customer service focused. Great job and thanks much! I will be a return customer. 471289

Draw tight front receiver hitch was a perfect fit for my 2000 Dodge Ram 2500. All hardware was a perfect match for my vehicle. I plan to use the front hitch for final positioning a trailer into campsites. 478190


Comments

I have used it to precisely move my travel trailer into a perfect parked position in my yard. It does just what I got it for. Couldnt be happier with the product.

My wife and I installed this on our 1999 Dodge Ram 1500. I am a retired geologist and definitely not mechanical. I had to buy an impact wrench to remove the existing bolts, which included a brush guard bumper. It was toughest putting the bolts back in for the sway bar with the added metal from the hitch. It took us awhile, but to be honest it wasn't that hard and would be easy for anyone mechanically inclined. 546812

Receiver went on like it was part of the original truck. The delivery was prompt and the product was in good shape even though it was heavy and could have been mishandled. 455174

Great hitch, I've used it to hook up and move trailers around and pull things over a bunch of times. I even got an attachment for my vice so I can mount it and have it handy when needed. Installation was easy, took less than a hour with some basic hand tools. 583313

Fit like a glove. I like well made things and this is one of them. I have an 02 dodge and have had a front hitch since new. I have never had steering problem. I think a front hitch makes the front of the frame stiffer...... 721726

I needed a front mounted hitch because I pull a 5th wheel camper with a boat hooked to the back of it and I needed a place to put a bike rack for the kids bikes. I chose the Draw-tite brand hitch based on the fact that I liked the way it mounted farther back on the frame than the Curt version of the front mounted hitch. I mounted this hitch on my 2000 Ram 2500 Diesel without any help in about 2 hours. I did have to remove one OEM front bumper bolt on each side and, of course, the sway bar bolts (I probably could have mounted the hitch in about 45 minutes had any of these bolts come out easily but winter driving and road salt got the best of them. Luckily the hitch comes with all six new hardened bolts). I would suggest getting help just for the fact that it's difficult to hold the hitch steady while you raise the sway bar back into position. If you do decide to go it alone as I did, I will tell you that your best alignment punch will love you more than your own momma can when you are lining up the sway bar bolts. The hitch fit very well and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the Draw-tite front mounted hitch 614105

It was about 1/8 inch off for one side. Had to use a hydraulic ram to get to fit properly. But other than that its great. 607928

My front mount receiver hitch for my 97 Dodge Ram came in perfect shape and in a timely manner, the installation went very smooth and instructions were very easy. Only thing I recommend is a little longer sway bar bolts would be nice, just a little hard to get started. Other than that perfect easy company to work with and shipping was great I will be using etrailer for future purchases thank you!! 605981

I just installed the this on my dodge ram 2500. it seems to be constructed well and can be used for many different applications. I am going to use it to carry the spare tire, but can be used to pull truck out if it gets stuck. e-trailer shipped in a timely manner, and customer service rep was very helpful when ordering. 576463

Installed on a 97 Dodge 2500HD with the 5.9 gas engine. I had to remove my factory tow hooks and a grill guard. Other than that it bolts right on with the included hardware. Use a floor jack or ATV jack for the hitch and a cargo strap to support the sway bar. The easiest hitch I ever installed. 542201

Works as designed. Carries a cargo carrier with a generator, gas can and spare propane bottle. No problems. Added one of the anti-wiggle gizmos, but any receiver hitch stinger wiggles without one.
