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.

Shipment was fast and received in good condition. Have not installed yet. Been raining here for days with another 3 days expected. Since I have no shop I'll have to wait for install until it drys a bit. Will do a followup report on the installation. 478002

Got it installed and it works great. There is a learning curve to pushing a trailer in stead of pulling it. It does what I need it to do.

Hitch arrived earlier than expected which was good. I watched a video from etrailer about how to install a hitch which was somewhat useful, but was not the same model unit I had. In the video it stated to discard the skid plates but for the 65072 it's better to leave them in place as a filler since without them there is a gap between the frame and the hitch. Other than that the installation was pretty straight forward. Remains to be seen how well it holds up, but it will definitely get a workout this winter plowing snow which is the primary reason I bought it. 464767

Nice hitch. Used it less than 12 hours after installing it and all was as expected. The instructions were good and with the help of a friend, we got it installed in no time. I think it is two person job or definitely would have taken longer and been more frustrating to do alone. Definitely try and have another hand available before you install yours. 468351

I received the hitch on schedule and in good shape. The directions could have been a little better. It took me (not a professional) about 4 hrs. I could not get the hitch in place with both skid plates still attached. I removed one skid plate and could then position the hitch. The finished install seems very good. Having a second person is a definite advantage. I plan to use it to support my kayak while towing a fifth wheel. 563777

Just installed the Draw-Tite front hitch on my 2017 Ford 250 Super Duty so we will be able to transport our bikes ( just ordered a bike carrier from etrailer) as we tow a fifth wheel. Customer service was very helpful with their recommendations, instructions clear and I installed it myself without any problems. etrailer upped delivery time and has followed up regarding the whole experience. Will not hesitate to order from them in the future! Will update this review with photos when I receive the bike rack. 434952

This is my second time ordering from etrailer.com. The hitch came quickly and in great condition and was installed as per the instructions. I would take the advice of other reviewer’s and cut the hole just a little smaller and leave the skid plate bolts tight on the outside of the frame rails to make installation easier. This front hitch will be used for a bike rack on my new ford F2 50 super duty 4 x 4 and occasionally a winch or a support for my kayak. Happy customer AGAIN! 508387

Received the hitch on time. Actually a day before the scheduled delivery day. UPS always delivers and the drivers are great! Installation was easy once I I figured out how to use the fish wires. It is installed and I use it with a bicycle rack, luggage basket, and pushing a hay wagon into the barn is so simple rather than backing. 390669

I installed this on the front of a 2018 F350. Fit an finish is great. Install was easy and directions simple to follow. Having another set of hands was very helpful, else it would be a balancing act I imagine. No drilling needed except for the cutout in the valence. My use is a cargo basket for four bikes and a kayak rack when pulling my fifth wheel. I have a receiver splitter that allows me to have both the basket and Yak rack mounted at the same time. Load up the toys and go... 638977


Comments

Please keep in mind that the hitch has a 500 lb vertical load limit, which means that the hitch receiver tube can safely withstand a total of 500 lbs. This means that the combined weight of everything bearing down on that receiver, the bikes, the cargo tray, the splitter, the upright load bar and half the weight of the kayaks cannot exceed 500 lbs. Youll also want to make sure the splitter youre using has sufficient capacity for what youre asking it to do.

The install went very well except for needing some extra washers as spacers so the bolts could tighten without trying to bend things to fit. (At the frame connection side to side) The final install looks very nice and I use it when I need to put my bike carrier on the front of the truck. I cut a square hole in the air dam the size of the receiver head so it looks like it as from the factory. I plan to build a removable light bar to fit the receiver for snow / fog lights. 529807

Install of this hitch is a little tricky the install instructions are good but could be better ended up removing the skid plate brackets just could not get hitch in place with them installed if you have skid plate brackets I would try removing inner bolts as per instructions but leave outer bolts tight if hitch slides into place use fish wire to install new bolts I believe you could do it easier than the way instructions say the clearance between brackets and hitch is tight and fish wire kept getting pinched while trying to get hitch into position following the instructions as written . Plan on using the front mount hitch to jockey a trailer into a tight place 439214

Good fit. 1. Possible to support Kayaks/Canoes while towing Fifth wheel trailer using Yakima DryDock Boat Hitch Rack. Sorry NO photo, will have to snap a photo this year. 2. Use a portable winch for chores and maybe my own rescue some day. 491895


Comments

1 year latter front hitch works great. Im sure I originally rated 5 star but see only two on my past review. Easy install and have used for winch work and kayak/canoe hauling many times. Do not fine a way to edit past post like other sites permit so NO photos will be included. Highly recomend this front hitch

Item was delivered quickly and was in excellent condition. It fit well and was easy enough to install. My only negative was one of the bolts that had to be pulled with the wire into frame was screwed up on the end so nut would not start so big problem there. So try all bolts and nuts before you pull it into the frame to save yourself a lot of trouble. 541622

This product was excellent when packaged I am sure. However whomever shipped it did a poor job. When I got the product it had the paint scratched and missing from penetrating the box supplied. The instructions were OK but need to make clear that you dont have to remove the Sled plates on the the truck, just the inner bolts. You can not re-install the center bolt for the air deflector if you put it on last. It will be directly above the center of the hitch. Lastly, the hole that was put to re-install the electrical plug is slotted directly towards the hitch steel and the plug can not be reinstalled. The product looks good when installed and it did not take long to install. It would be nice if you would include a beauty ring to place in the cut out for the air deflector. I used a piece of tubing that i slit to form around the opening. 542188

It is installed and as expected functionally, but why such a big ugly sloppy hole in the air dam? It just does not have to be so unprofessional. If a template was designed and included, the layout would be much easier and exact with much tighter tolerances. Just saying.... A zero star on that point - otherwise I am okay with it. 2018 F-350 725383

Everything came on-time and fit just as described. Did the install in my driveway with only basic tools required. Needed my wife's help for about 3 minutes to help me hold the unit in place until I could get all 6 bolts lined up, but otherwise it was a one man job...took me a little over an hour, having never done the job before. Seems like it will hold up just fine for many years to come. 693930

Two people make the job go a lot faster. The hardware threading wires are the bomb, couldn't have done it without them, thank you. Took about an hour to do, follow the instructions regarding cutting the air dam, do that first, makes things a lot easier. Going to use for cargo carrier for generator from toy hauler for camper. Next project will be running wire to camper. Fun projects. 570788

Did not take pics as i did not do the install. It took a total of an hour and a half. That was thirty minutes chasing 4 bolts that did not come with the hitch. The guy who did the install said it was the easiest one he ever had don all original paerts re-installed. 561690

Just finished installing this hitch, great fit but would like to see some type of template for cutting the air dam. The installation would go better if you had a helper, took me all day but I am 65, and it is hard for me to get under the truck. Will use the hitch for a lift to carry my wife's power chair. I have bought several items from etrailer and always been happy with the products, customer service and delivery time 538916

Purchased this front ,mount hitch to use as additional cargo / bike rack for my truck camper. Lori was very helpful in answering my questions prior to purchase. ETrailer provided timely communication throughout the process, ship date, tracking numbers, etc. I was very happy with customer service and will use them again for future purchase if this type. The installation was painless, simple bolt on as described no brute force massaging needed. I did it alone and can say it definitely would be better with an assistant but ,was not impossible without , it just took longer. 508743

My hitch looks great and arrived in record time! I haven't had a chance to install it yet. I do wish it came with some instructions but I am guessing once I get underneath the truck, it will be plainly obvious. I plan on using it on the front of my truck, primarily to carry my bike rack since my trailer will be using my rear hitch. I've also come across a few occasions when it would have been nice to have to front hitch to make getting into some tight spots easier so I plan on giving that a shot. 453631

Quick shipping. Took less than hour to install. Fit perfectly. Tip push fish wire in from were bolt will come out and then thread bolt into wire. This works well as frame end is big opening to push wire out. It is almost impossible to put bolt on wire and find bolt hole down frame rail. 441986

I found the hitch to be of good quality. Installation was pretty straight forward, nothing too difficult. Only criticism I can say would be that the instructions tell you to cut a 3.5 inch hole in the air dam. I should have measured the hitch first as I probably would have cut a little smaller hole. Other than that, nice clean install, price was right, very happy with this purchase. 362225

This is my initial review for fit and installation. First this front hitch mount was a great price and shipping was great as well. The unit seems very solid and fits like a glove on my 2017 F350. The install was easy, but there was an hour of frustrating finessing to get the 6 bolts lined up, even with the helpfully supplied bolt guide wires. And an air impact wrench would be more helpful than a standard ratchet as there was barely enough room to tighten the right side bolts, but possible - one painful 'click' at a time. There was not enough travel space for my torque wrench to work for in the tight space. Also the instructions ask that you cut a 3 1/2" square hole out of the lower plastic air dam, but the hitch is only 3" square. I made a tighter fit by only cutting a 3 1/4" square opening. The hitch matches the rear hitch finish and sticks out about 5", but not out past the front license plate on the front bumper. Despite the 2 hour one-person install due to finessing the bolts, it appears to be a lifetime product. I'm looking forward to many years of practical use with the front hitch! 355589

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Front Hitch

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Why Does the Front Mount EcoHitch Require Removal of Front Bumper During Install on 2019 Ford F-250
  • Great question! The EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7904 that you referenced actually installs right behind where the license plate sits (see attached photos). This differs from the Draw-Tite # 65076 and the Curt # C31078 because they sit closer to the bottom of the bumper and require that the air deflector/fascia either be modified or removed. So the EcoHitch does require more of an intricate installation but it also leaves your 2019 Ford F-250 with a great...

  • Will Front Mounted Hitch fit 2017 Ford F-250 Four-Wheel Drive?
  • Both of the front mounted hitches you referenced, Draw-Tite # 65076 and Curt # C31078 are confirmed fits for all models of the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty. They will not interfere with your axles; you can check out how each looks in the photos I've attached for you. The Draw-Tite is shown on the front-facing picture, and the Curt is shown on the side-facing picture.

  • Will EcoHitch Front Mount Hitch Receiver Fit a Diesel 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • I do have a way that you can still have a front mount hitch receiver on your 2018 Ford F-350 but when I spoke with my contact at EcoHitch he said that the diesel models have extra cooler lines that would get in the way of the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount # 306-X7904. For a trailer hitch that fits your 2018 F-350 diesel I recommend the Curt Front Mount # C31078 over the Draw-Tite # 65076 because they have easier instructions when it comes to cutting the front fascia. This will then allow...

  • Highest Weight Capacity for Front-Mounted Hitch on 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • There are a pair of front-mounted hitches that fit your 2018 Ford F-350 and both, the Draw-Tite # 65076 and Curt # C31078, have a weight capacity of 9,000 lbs and though I cannot tell you with absolute certainty a 12,000 lb front-mounted hitch does not exist, 9,000 lbs is generally what you are going to see. There are winch mounts that fit in a receiver such as the Bulldog Winch Receiver Mount Kit # BDW20155 which are for 12,000 lb winches but you would be limited to the 9,000 lb capacity...

  • Front Hitch Comparison and Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-250
  • There are two front hitch options we have for your 2018 Ford F-250 which are very similar. We have the Draw Tite part # 65076 and the Curt # C31078 which are both really great options. The big differences are that the Draw Tite will stick out past the air dam a bit more than the Curt. Also the Curt is made in the USA. I attached a picture that shows where the Curt installs relative to the air dam. I would go with the Curt for those reasons.

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • I personally really like the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7904 because it is hidden behind the license plate on your 2019 Ford F-250 when not in use but this does have a bit more of an intricate installation and it is only designed to fit gasoline engines. Aside from that you have the Curt # C31078 and Draw-Tite # 65076 which are basically identical and so it just comes down to brand loyalty. Attached is a picture of the EcoHitch installed on a Ford Super...

  • Front Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350
  • For your 2015 Ford F-350 the correct front hitch is the part # 65049 which is a confirmed fit. The part # 65076 is for newer versions of your truck so it would not be fit. I attached an install video and an install pic as well.
    view full answer...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Ford F-350 Diesel
  • The front hitch I recommend for your 2019 Ford F-350 is the Draw Tite part # 65076 as it fits diesel engine trucks unlike the EcoHitch you referenced and also has great ground clearance like you can see in the picture. Since it comes through the air dam you don't lose any ground clearance.

  • Comparing Height of Front Mount Hitches for a 2018 Ford F-250
  • The Curt hitch # C31078 may be a little higher on your 2018 Ford F-250 but ultimately it and the Draw-Tite front hitch # 65076 will be in about the same place. I have linked the instructions for these hitches for you.

  • Can EcoHitch be Installed with Draw-Tite or Curt Front Receiver on 2019 Ford F-250
  • That's a really good idea, but unfortunately the tab on the mounting brackets for the Draw-Tite # 65076 and Curt # C31078 actually use the same mounting location as the tab on the EcoHitch # 306-X7904 so you will only be able to install one of these front mount hitches on your 2019 Ford F-250. With that being said, I recommend using the EcoHitch because it has a hidden design which gives you an OEM look when you aren't utilizing the receiver, plus you can then use a Gen-Y Adjustable...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Ford F-350 that is Made in the USA
  • Draw-Tite currently manufacturers their trailer hitches, including # 65076, in Mexico. Curt manufacturers their hitches in the US. For a 2018 Ford F-350 the Curt front hitch is # C31078.

  • Front Mounted Receiver Hitch for 2018 Ford F250 Diesel
  • The EcoHitch # 306-X7904 you referred to does indeed have a 1000 lb vertical load capacity, however I'm sorry to say that it's not compatible with Diesel models due to interference from the transmission cooler and its supply and return lines. My EcoHitch rep tells me that their engineering folks are working on a fit, but they couldn't provide an expected release date. Curt offers the # C31078 and Draw-Tite has the # 65076, but the vertical load capacity on both of those is 500 lbs.

  • Is there a 2-1/2 Inch Front Hitch Receiver for a 2017 Ford F-250
  • The use of a hitch expander to go from a 2 inch receiver to a 2-1/2 inch receiver will reduce the tongue weight of the hitch by 50 percent. There isn't a front hitch with a 2-1/2 inch receiver available either. So instead of adapting the 2 inch hitch I recommend using a reducer sleeve in the 2-1/2 inch receiver such as # C45405.

  • Front Mount Hitch For A Winch On 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty Diesel King Ranch
  • I do have an option for you but the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7904 is designed for gasoline models only because the diesel models have extra cooler lines that get in the way during installation. I recommend Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65076 because it fits the Diesel model. It also has a 9,000 lb line pull rating so you would not want to exceed 9,000 lbs with your winch. Installing the hitch itself will not interfere with the...

  • Which Front Hitch Fits 2017 Ford F 250 Super Duty Diesel Engine
  • EcoHitch still hasn't given us a diesel engine version of the front hitch part # 306-X7904 and at this point I kind of doubt they will due to age of the vehicle. You'd have to go with the Draw Tite part # 65076 for your 2017 Ford F 250 Super Duty diesel engine.

  • Where Will Draw-Tite Front Hitch Receiver be Positioned on a 2017 Ford F-350
  • I have included a picture showing Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65076 installed. It and the Curt hitch install in pretty much the same place.

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch 2017 F-250 That Resists Corrosion
  • Both of the front-mount trailer hitches that are designed to work with your 2017 f-250 have a powder coat finish that helps reduce corrosion. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 65076 over the Curt # C31078 because the Draw-Tite hitch uses e-coat on the steel before painting it. E-coating is the process of immersing the part in a bath of water-soluable paint while being connected to an electrical power source set at a certain voltage. E-coating does not corrode and would last longer for you.

  • Recommended Front Hitch Receiver For 2017 Ford F-250
  • Adding a front hitch to your 2017 Ford F-250 Diesel 4x4 Off Road will reduce your bumper clearance in the front by about 3 inches but if you have the air dam on the front, that will hang lower than the receiver. I recommend the Curt # C31078 over the Draw-Tite # 65076 because the Curt hitch is made in the USA. The two hitches are almost identical in design, installation location, and capacity. The manufacturing location is the biggest difference with the Draw-Tite made in Mexico....

  • Recommended Front Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier for 2018 Ford F-350
  • Starting with the front hitch for your 2018 Ford F-350 I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65076. This is confirmed to fit your truck and will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and a 500 pound vertical load limit. Just note that the plastic air deflector/fascia will need to be removed for installation. It can just be left off once finished or you can trim it and reattach it with the hitch installed. I have attached the written installation instructions...

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch for 2018 Ford F-250
  • The highest rated front mount hitch we have available for your 2018 Ford F-250 is the Draw-Tite # 65076.

  • Front Hitch and 2 Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • You'd need a front hitch installed on your 2017 Ford F-250 first for a bike rack to install. For that the Draw Tite hitch part # 65076 is a confirmed fit and would work well. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform 2-bike rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install and remove from your vehicle since it's light, but also it'll be very easy to load bikes on since it's a platform rack. This rack also...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Front Hitch on a 2017 Ford F-250
  • Because Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65076 sits low on the 2017 Ford F-250 I recommend looking at bike racks with a rise in the shank for better ground clearance. The Lets Go Aero BikeWing # B01311 is a great inexpensive option. It weighs just 12 pounds and holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. It has a slight rise in the shank so it will help with ground clearance without blocking the driver's view too much. I have linked a video review of this...

The Detail K2 Avalanche Snowplow for 2" Hitches # K2AVAL8219 is an excellent choice of snow plow too if you are still evaluationg your options. A confirmed fit for your 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty, this snow plow has a 3-position adjustable blade with...

  • Will the Draw-Tite Front Hitch Fit a 2019 Ford F-450 With Box Frame
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65076 is indeed a fit for a 2019 Ford F-450 which I confirmed with Draw-Tite for you. The front of the frame rail should be open allowing you to slide the proper fasteners into place and there is an access hole on the bottom of the frame as well so there should be no issues but this has again already been confirmed. I have attached an install photo for you as well. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver is a complete bolt-on...

  • Will Using a Reducer Sleeve in Factory 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Reduce Towing Capacity of 2017 Ford F-250
  • Whether or not the capacity drops when using a reducer sleeve is something that the hitch manufacturer or Ford would have to tell you. I know that in some applications it does reduce the towing capacity and in others it does not. It probably would be easiest to go with a 2 inch hitch in the front, # 65076, and the 2-1/2 at the back like you said.

Both the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31078 and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65076 are compatible with all models of the 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty, including diesel models, like yours. The Curt # C31078 is made in the, USA, offers a more concealed look than the Draw-Tite # 65076 along with...
