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.

Arrived 2 days after ordering online!Was a direct fit for my 96 Ford F150.I used a jack to hold it up and another set of hands.I thought I was going to have to take the spare tire off but I didn't.I ended up just sawing off the end of the carrier piece.Drilled 6 1/2 holes in the frame.Tightened it with a deep socket ratchet but it still will need to be tightened with a torque wrench.The Hitch weighs about 36 pounds and I probably will use it to haul a small trailer.??


Comments
Works great,no issues at all.Would definitely recommend.
Devin - 04/04/2020

Very hefty and solidly built but arrived literally half out of the box with multiple scrapes as if dragged at some point. This will not affect its use but when paying for a"new" product, it should arrive in "new" condition. Better care must go to reinforcing while packaging to ensure it remains in the box during delivery.


Comments
When it comes to shipping hitches, it is very common for them to arrive with scratches. We recommend using a rust-oleum type paint to cover the scratchesspots. This will prevent any corrosion in the future. I have a link attached for your reference. I have also sent this over to customer service for them to reach out to you.

The hitch, is welded in a way it does not sit straight. Where the ball slides in is slightly rotated. You can see this in the metal work and picture attached. Also, the hitch sits lower than I thought it would according to the advertisement. It’s is about 5 inches below the bumper, and I got the hitch to install without a drop bumper. The craftsman ship is lacking, so I imagine it’s towing weight rating will be to.



by:

A hitch is pretty much a hitch and it works and fit fine. What is impressive is the customer service offered by etrailer. I had questions about installation and they were answered quickly, professionally, and more importantly, correctly! I will be purchasing from etrailer from now on. Thank you!

A sleek subdued look for a useful & classic item - a hitch receiver. I did not expect the final product installed, to look so sleek & subdued. The Draw-Tite #75038 is a great fit for a 1987 Dodge D-150 pick-up truck.

Great hitch! installation was easy little tricky on my rear mounting bolts as my fuel tank was boxed in. I fished the fasteners and bolts through with rebar wire as to not drop the fuel tank. Very pleased with etrailer awesome to work with would do it all again for sure.

1973 Ford F-100, F-150, F-250, F-350

I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of this unit and after checking around for weeks, I'm sure I got the best price available anywhere. The unit shipped out very fast and I received it within a couple of days, just in time to bolt it on. I will buy from etrailer.com again and highly recommend etrailer.com to others. And by the way, I found enough information on the different hitches on the website to make sure that I identified the hitch that was compatible with my vehicle before placing my order.
Thank You!

the product looks good and should function fine. All of my drawbars fit, so it should pull my trailer without any problems.I did,, however have to drill four of the six holes and remove my spare tire carrier. I will have to put a different style carrier on to correct the issue. Overall I say its a good product for a great price. Free shipping was a plus. I will more the likely purchase from etrailers again. the service has been great so far.

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch



  • How to Pick Out Correct Ball Mount Rise/Drop When Using Draw Tite Hitch 75038
    When the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75038 is installed on your 1995 Ford F-150 the top of the hitch tube will be right underneath the rear bumper. To compute about how much rise/drop you would need from a ball mount you will basically need to measure from the bottom of your rear bumper down to the ground and subtract about an inch from this measurement. You will then need to use the jack of your trailer to level it and then measure from the ground to the bottom lip of the coupler. Whatever...
    view full answer...
  • Dimension and Installation of a Hitch on a 1995 Ford F150
    The distance between the mounting holes from left to right when measured on center is 35 inches. You will want to push the hitch as far to the front of the vehicle against the rivet. To center the hitch on the frame rails you would want to find a reference point on both frame rails and then make sure that the hitch sits an equal distance from that point on both side of the vehicle. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Will Draw-Tite 2-Inch Hitch 75038 Fit 1992 Ford F-150
    Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75038 will fit the 1992 Ford F-150 that has a standard bumper or step bumper. If your truck has either of these bumpers then the hitch will fit so long as your frame width is NOT 34-inches. Drilling is required and the instructions are linked. I also included a link to a video that shows installation in a 1990 F-150. If you also need a 4-pole wiring harness you can use # 118316.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a Modified 1988 Ford F-150, 250, or 350
    On trailer hitch # 75038 it measures approximately 9-1/4 inches from the bottom of the truck frame down to the center of the receiver. The hitches for the 1988 Ford F-series trucks are designed for stock models. I can't say for sure if any would fit with the modifications to the rear of your truck. If the measurements for the hitch don't work out another option is to use a weld-on hitch and have it installed by a qualified professional welder. I have linked the weld-on hitches that we carry.

He said that from the rear most mounting hole to the end of the receiver tube is 10-7/8 inches.

  • Does Gas Tank of 1996 Ford Bronco Have to Drop to Install Trailer Hitch
    We don't have any fit notes for having to drop the fuel tank of your 1996 Ford Bronco to install a Class III hitch like the # 75038. I did some googling and found that one guy had to fishwire his hardware through the frame to get around the fuel tank but that's really not that difficult. For a bolt leader to do this you would need the part # 80101-1. I attached a help video on fishwiring for you to check out as well.

  • Best Way to Approximate Ball Mount Drop Needed for a Trailer Before Hitch is Installed
    When I said subtract an inch from the bottom of the bumper that was meant as a way to approximate where the top of the hitch opening will be once the hitch was installed. For nearly every vehicle the hitch ends up sitting right at the bottom of the bumper. Since it's hard to pick out a ball mount rise/drop without having the hitch installed first this was the best way to get a pretty good approximation. Depending on the suspension of the system you may get a 1/2 inch of sag on the suspension...
