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. Technical Support

At 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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (38 Customer Reviews)

Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your vehicle with this fully welded, corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.


Excellent product. Very tight fit around the upper 2 bolt mounts. Utilizing the weight of the vehicle and a pallet jack, was able to get the hitch positioned properly for bolting up.

2016 Toyota 4Runner

Super easy install. 25 min. Use a Jack and angle it in like the first picture. Then when you get the 2 side bolts almost snug, use the Jack to move it up into place. Then just put the 4 stock bolts back in and torque to specs. I will use this front hitch for a bike rack, winch and fishing cooler in the summer Thanks Etrailer, it went in as easy as you said it would. super fast shipping also!

Its been a year and it has shown no signs of rust or wear. very happy with this purchase!
Shawn N - 03/25/2018

2014 Toyota 4Runner

Front Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Toyota 4Runner was delivered quickly and in perfect shape. Installation was straight forward, however I spent more time trying to remove the super tight 4 bolts from the frame in order to install the hitch. There's not a lot of room once the hitch is installed to tighten the the upper bolts. I had to use a smaller ratchet in the tight space. I also used anti-seize on all the bolts prior to re-installing them. This hitch will be used for a fishing cooler rack and rod holder while on the beach. So Far I'm very satisfied with this product. Draw-Tight makes a good product.

Still working well! No problems whatsoever
Stephen K - 04/30/2018

2017 Toyota 4Runner

Completed the installation in about 30 minutes. Clear instructions. Was not difficult to do by myself. I first removed the 4 small bolts. Placed the hitch on two jack stands which brought it within an inch of the final location. Placed the two large bolts provided by etrailer in the back of the mount. Then used a sissor jack to slightly raise the front of the hitch where I could then insert and tighten the four small bolts.
Only complaint was that a significant amount of the paint came off during installation. Not sure why, did not use a hammer or anything that would have stricken the mount.


Quick easy bolt on installation. Heavy duty. Works great for mounting a removable winch


Very Happy with the item. Other than the issues removing rusted bolts from vehicle, installation was fairly straightforward. Previous reviews had alerted us to the bolt issue, so we used pb blaster on them for a few days before installing.

Love being able to carry my bike in the front and not impede getting in and out of the back hatch.

I am Verry happy whit my front mount trailer hitch receiver

2014 Toyota 4Runner

Very easy to install. I used a jack for support and had to use a heavy hammer to nestle it into place. It nicely hugs the bottom of the bumper with no gap unlike the Curt which sits VERY LOW on the non Limited edition 4Runners. Thanks for the quick delivery.

Very happy with it. Use it often. Thanks again.
Brad.A - 06/29/2018


Excellent product but it helps to look at instructions first. Don’t do what I did. Also use a light and get a neighbor or your wife to help guide it in place.


The hitch was easy to install and it works great. I've used it in a few different ways and I'm sure I'll still find a few more.

2017 Toyota 4Runner

The website was easy to use to make sure I got the right hitch. It came on time, undamaged, and truly was easy to install. Took 2 bolts off each side added the one sent with the hitch and put the other bolts back on. Great directions with photos. I'll be using several accessories on the front but my favorite is the rod holders while I'm fishing on the beach.

2018 Toyota 4Runner

I received the receiver hitch for my 4Runner and have now installed it.
The hitch fit perfectly and was not difficult to install. I have many ideas
on how to use it. (towing, winching, bumper step etc.)


Fit perfect. No issues and came quickly.


Having said that, a few
hints. I just installed this on my 2020 Toyota 4RUNNER PRO.
1. Remove the bottom cover pad on both sides where the side bolts supplied goes in.
2. When you remove the front two bolts insert the bottom one from the rear and leave it just inside the flush face on both sides. When you lift the hitch up to install thread the bottom bolt out and let the hitch rest on the stud! Install the top bolt loose, remove the reverse inserted bolt and install correctly.
3. Once the 2 front and newly supplied side bolts are installed loosely tighten all 4 front bolts then the new side bolts.
4. I tried inserting pictures but site would not allow it.

2015 Toyota 4Runner

The product arrived on time as promised, within 3 business days. The installation instructions were clear. Installation was simple but not exactly easy. It took about an hour and a half to install.
I have 2 tips which might help the next customer
1) I used two scissor jacks to hold the hitch in place while tightening the bolts. The scissor jacks held the hitch perfectly and safely.
2) I didn't have a stubby ratchet which would have helped speed the process of removing and installing the bolts.
I am very happy with the hitch and it sits at the right height so that it does not affect the clearance on my 4Runner.

One year on, I have had zero problems with this hitch. I purchased this to mount a front rodcooler holder when I go to the beach. Great product!
William - 08/07/2019

2016 Toyota 4Runner

This is s hood sturdy hitch. What I particularly like is that it is tight up against the car which maximizes the ground clearance on my 2016 4Runner. The down side is that it interferes with removal of the lower air deflector. However, the deflector could be eliminated or temporarily flexed out of the way for removal of the oil filter.


Great product
Great customer service

2018 Toyota 4Runner

Fits perfectly on my 2018 Toyota 4Runner off road


I tow a small camper and this hitch receiver is great for using my bike rack on the front while towing. I have also used it for installing a hook to pull with and installing a winch.

2018 Toyota 4Runner

Excellent quality and perfect fit. Solo installation took about 30 minutes after I let the frame bolts soak in WD-40 spray for 90 minutes. Took ten minutes just to find the torque wrench! LOL Florida climate so no rust issues. Front hitch will be used in conjunction with dual bike carrier. The 4Runner pulls an RV, carries two kayaks on the roof rack, and now we can take the mountain/hybrid bikes.

2018 Toyota 4Runner

I ordered a front receiver hitch for my 2018 4Runner. It showed up 2-3 days before I expected. Excellent build quality and paint. I got it at 3 PM and had it installed by 4. It would’ve been quicker if I would’ve had one more hand to hold it in place to bolt it but I just used a car jack. It fit perfectly. Excited to use it with my motorcycle carrier

2017 Toyota 4Runner

Package came quickly and in good condition. Installation was easy for one person with use of a floor jack. Instructions were clear and installation was just as shown.
I would highly recommend to others and e-trailer and customer service was great, as always.


Great product and great service. Delivery was timely and the fit and ease of installation was fantastic.


If you have a difficult loading ramp this front hitch will be a godsend, works perfectly, every SUV should have one.

Excellent. Was put one by my mechanic and involved to drilling. They said it was easy to put on

  • Does Draw Tite Front Hitch # 65074 Fit 2018 Toyota 4Runner Off Road Premium
    I attached a picture of the Draw Tite hitch part # 65074 installed on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner that has the same front end/skid plate as what your Offroad Premium edition came with to show you it fits well. No skid plate removal or trimming would be needed.

  • Will the Front Hitch for a 2016 Toyota 4Runner Reduce Ground Clearance
    The only place to install a front mount hitch on your 2016 Toyota 4Runner is under the front bumper fascia which means you will lose a bit of ground clearance. That said, the hitch will be pretty much level with the belly pan so this can also be viewed as a piece of protection for both the front bumper fascia and the engine oil pan which would have far greater consequence if damaged than the trailer hitch. It could also be an excuse for a lift kit as well. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer...

  • Does Front Hitch have to be Removed to Change Oil on a 2016 Toyota 4Runner
    Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65074 mounts to the very front of the frame on your 2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5 so it is very unlikely that the hitch would have to be removed to do an oil change. But what I recommend is taking a look at the installation instructions linked below and comparing that to your vehicle to determine if the hitch will block anything related to changing the oil. Like you said on other Toyota vehicles, specifically the Tacoma and Tundra, the front receivers for those...

  • Will Skid Plate Need Removed On 2016 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro for Draw-Tite Front Hitch
    The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65074 is a fit for a 2016 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro but you will need to remove the front skid plate prior to installation due to the trailer hitch design. There are no options to retain the skid plate so you will either need to remove this or modify how you see fit for a front mount hitch installation.

    If your 2017 Toyota 4Runner SR5 has one of the TRD front skid plates it will need to be removed to install the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65074.

This will help to protect your front bumper and give you a nice step for working under the hood of your 4Runner. It will also eliminate the whistle that is often caused by the...
