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.

Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Chrysler Pacifica

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chrysler Pacifica we're gonna be taking a look at and I'm gonna show you how to install the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76046.This is what our trailer hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is completely hidden behind the bumper fascia. The only thing we're really going to see is our receiver tube and our added on plate here for our wiring accessories. This is going to be a class three hitch. It's going to be a 2 inch by 2 inch. Hitch pin hole is going to be 5/8 inch in diameter.

It's going to take a standard 5/8 inch hitch pin. You can find one on our website using part number PC3. The smaller hole towards the back here is for a J-pin stabilization device only. What that does is take the shake and play out of any of your hitch mount accessories. Again, that part does not come with the hitch, however you can find one of those on our website.

Also, we're going to have plate style safety chain loops. It's going to give us plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks.As far as our weight capacities go with this hitch, we're going to have a 675 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. We're going to have a 4,500 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus anything loaded on it. I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Pacifica to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.

Now this hitch is rated for weight distribution. Tongue weight is going to stay the same, however your trailer weight is going to go up to 5,000 pounds. As far as the installation goes, it's pretty straightforward installation. I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to help hold the hitch into place until you get your hardware in.Now let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mounted accessories you may need. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper is going to be about 5 inches.

From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube it's going to be about 12 inches. Now let's show you how to get this installed.The first thing we need to do is start by removing our underbody panel. We're going to have six, one, two, three, four, five, six, 8 millimeter head bolts that run across the back and then down our driver's fender there. Take an 8 millimeter socket to remove them. We'll have three 8 millimeter head bolts in our fender well. We'll use socket wrench with the 8 millimeter socket. We'll take a 10 millimeter socket and we'll have five plastic nuts here. We'll have two 10 millimeter head bolts here. Then we'll have two more 10 millimeter plastic nuts here. We'll take a large flathead screwdriver and we're going to have two of these. Now one thing about these is if you turn them they may not come loose, so with our panel loose here we're going to reach up and put just a little bit of downward pressure on it. We'll do the same thing with this one here. Now we'll go ahead and remove our panel, set it aside. We're going to need to trim it later on.We're going to need to lower our exhaust before doing that. We're going to use a safety strap. I like to hook mine, and just hook it to the spring. You can hook it anywhere that it's going to support our exhaust. We're going to have two hangers we're going to need to remove. We're going to be taking this one off, and we're going to have another one right here. We're going to take some lubricant, go ahead and spray our hanger down. If you don't have lubricant, soapy water works just as well. Take a pry bar and just pry that off. We're going to have one more we're going to remove. It's towards the front of the vehicle a little bit more. Go ahead and spray that down just like we did the other two. Then we need to remove our heat shield. We're going to have two more 10 millimeter plastic nuts. We're going to have one here, and you're going to have one right back here.Pull the heat shield down. We're going to trim our heat shield. You can see the section that I have marked out per our instructions. You measure from here up to get your measurement. We're going up per our instructions 11 inches. Then we're just going to cut off this whole section. I'm going to use some aviation sheers or tin snips. We can go ahead and reinstall the remaining portion of our heat shield.Next we're going to install our hardware. We're going to be using this hole, this hole, and this hole. In your kit you're going to get some pull wires like this, some carriage bolts, and you're going to get two different size spacer blocks. You're going to have a couple of shorter ones and a couple of longer ones. We're going to start with our shorter spacer blocks. We're going to be going into this hole. What we're going to do is we're going to take the spring end of our wire, we're going to feed it through here, and we're going to come out here. Just like that. Put your spacer block on. Make sure you hold onto your wire so you don't pull it through. Thread it on, thread your bolt on your pull wire. Push your spacer block up in first. Then you're going to push your bolt inside. Then pull it out like that. You're going to do the same thing here using a short spacer block.For the last hole we're going to use the longer spacer block, carriage bolt, pull wire. We're going to go ahead and thread our bolt onto our pull wire. This time we're going to do a reverse pull, so we're going to do it a little bit different. We're going to push our bolt in the hole first, then our spacer block, and just pull it back down. Then we're going to repeat this process on the passenger side.Next thing we're going to do is we're going to take our hitch and we're going to slide it up onto our exhaust on our passenger side, and we're going to allow our exhaust to hold it up. We're going to take our pull wires on the driver's side, put them in the corresponding holes. Slide it up in place. Remove the pull wire. Take a conical tooth washer, you're going to make sure the teeth are facing towards the hitch, put it on. Then inaudible 00:07:37. Now we'll go ahead and install one of our nuts and washers on the passenger side to help hold our hitch in place while we install the remaining hardware.Now we'll use a 22 millimeter socket and tighten all of our hardware. Then we're going to torque our hardware to the specifications in the instructions. Now we'll reinstall our exhaust. Remove the pull strap or support strap. Next we're going to trim our underbody panel. We're going to measure in 6 inches, which is about right to this inaudible 00:08:40 here. We're going to go straight across, which is going to come out to 32 inches. It's going to come right to the inside of this, this clip here. Just like that. I'm just going to use a utility knife because this is just cardboard. And reinstall your underbody panel.That will do it for a look at and installation on the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 76046 on our 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.

WOW what can I say..... I was trying to figure out what the exact hitch I needed for my 2017 Pacifica. My search took me directly to etrailer where I found a video showing my car, even the same color and the correct hitch. A few clicks later the hitch and lighting package was on its way at a very competitive price! In just a few days it arrived and it is a beauty. We will install it and be ready for my new trailer. Thanks a big bunch 469530

PACKAGING WAS TERRIBLE. BOX CAME OPEN ON THE END AND BOTTOM. IF THE BOLTS WERE NOT TAPED TO THE HITCH THEY WOULD BE GONE. THE HITCH WAS OVER HALF OUT OF THE BOX. DIRECTIONS WERE NOT AS NEEDED FOR THE INSTALL 608154


Comments

Were sorry to hear that the box the hitch was packed in was in bad shape when it arrived to you. If you click on the link Ive provided, you can see a video showing the hitch being installed on a 2017 Pacifica. I hope the video is helpful for you.

Perfect fit, install video was dead on and super helpful. Fits great up in the bumper so the look is very nice and OEM like from the back. Was able to install this without lifting or even jacking up the van. A pair of Jack stands will make installing this by yourself a bit easier. Very happy overall. 603907

Very good looking/high quality hitch. Video was extremely helpful, and fishing the hardware thru the frame is a easy as it looks. Definitely have a second set of hands to help mount the hitch and align all the hardware. As other have mentioned, trimming the under body panel was not in the video and I cut significantly less of the panel than the instructions show. I installed this on a Limited with the hands free tailgate. I re-mounted the sensor toward the drivers side so it's not blocked by the hitch tongue. Chrysler sells a bracket to do this (68275630AG) which also adds another sensor so you can kick on either side of the tongue, but that was over a hundred bucks - no thanks! 550784

I don't consider myself a mechanic and looked at the 45 minute completion as not probable. The instructions were clear with figures appropriate. There were some discrepancies between the description and the actual look of the underneath. An number order for removal of screws and nuts would be helpful. Process took me about 3 hours but that accounts for picking up some tools after I had already begun. I didn't have a lift or ramps so used my driveway slant with a couple of 4x4 boards to lift the back of the car. All in all the threading of the wires went easier than anticipated particularly since the bend of the wire from shipping in the bag created a natural flow for the tip to reach the holes. 508028

Great product, fast shipping, good price. 2h to install, worst part of install was sound dampening panel under van, otherwise very straight fwd. Great video on etrailer to guide install. Customer pics to modify panel much less then recommended was great and allowed minimal modifications. 2018 Pacifica touring S. Nice and low profile receiver that sticks tight under bumper and blends well. 568755

I installed this hitch with help from my mechanic. You can do it alone but much easier to have someone hold it in place while you thread the bolts. I deliver auto parts with my Pacifica so in the year I've had the hitch on it, I've put 130,000 miles on it and lots of rock salt here in western PA. Surprisingly there is very little surface rust on the hitch. This is my second hitch from etrailer and probably not the last. 476540

This isn't the first time I've done business with etrailer.com, and certainly won't be the last! Bought to 2" hitches for the SUV and the minivan, and both are QUALITY. Installed in under 30 minutes, and bound to last a lifetime. Great products, great price...I highly recommend, especially versus some of the other installers. Got a buddy that's a mechanic (or handy with the tools)? Buy here, take there, and BLAM...save $100 or more!!! 382298

The hitch arrived just one day after ordering. Amazing service! It's exactly as described. I like that the cross tube is hidden. It will be primarily used it for a bike rack. I had it installed by a professional, and it all went well for them. They appreciated the clear instructions (the downloaded pdf file, not the sheet in the hardware pack) and the installation video as it was the first Chrysler Pacifica they had done. This is the second hitch that I purchased from etrailer.com. They are a good company to do business with. 573137

Excellent fit. Working with no hoist on concrete floor took me 1 1/2 hr. working alone. Fit just as advertised. ——————-————————————————————————————— Electrical wiring a bit more involved, a hoist would be good. The challenging part is running the 12 volt wire to the battery with the removal of the underbody panels required. Still excellent product. Both videos helpful. 499992

Straight forward install. Fits good with no issues. Tip on the hybrid make sure you get the sk kit and you can reuse the same ground stud after the hitch is in place. 561269

This is my 2nd hitch install, the last one being on my Elantra Hatch. It took me 3 hours to install. I installed the hitch in my driveway. I did not use a lift or ramps. There was enough ground clearance for me to reach everything under the car. Pros - This is a very heavy duty hitch. You can tell the build quality is great and its quite heavy. - The bolts and nuts that come with this hitch are some of the best I have ever used. The nuts screw on very easily. This is surprisingly very rare for bolts from the big box stores. - The video from etrailer is great, I am not sure I would have been able to install this without it. I watched it multiple times during my install. Cons - and this the 4 stars are all based on how difficult this is to install. None of which is the hitch's or etrailers fault. 1. You have to remove plastic under body panel on the Pacifica which is not in the video but is in the instructions. As other reviews have stated there are 3 screws hidden behind the driver rear tire that are very hard to get to. 2. Dropping the exhaust still made it very hard to access that side. 3. The instructions are basically worthless, but etrailer makes up for that with the video. 375964

I haven't installed the receiver yet but so far I am impressed with the speed of the delivery and the condition of the hitch. I will be having mechanics install it on Sunday. I will show them the video of the installation for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica if necessary. 377041


Comments

As a follow up, the hitch is installed on our Chrysler Pacifica and looks better than other aftermarket hitches I have seen around here. A local garage put the hitch on the car, and the only thing that slowed him down was just how much to cut off the catalytic heat shield. I dont know if he had ever watched the video of the installation procedure on line. Cost about $110 to install.

Hitch looks good on car not a lot hanging down, just sq. tube. As for instructions I would add removal of Left rear wheel to get at 3 bolts holding on shield makes it easier. 336378

Very solid construction especially on the weld points. The hitch barely noticeable from the back end of the vehicle which makes it seem like its not there (nice). Good anchor points for chains and I love the wire harness mount in case I decide to wire through there. Installation was sort of a pain because the video doesn't go over removal of the undercarriage protector and cutting that. However, the instructions did a good job of giving you cutting dimensions. I spent 1.5 hours doing this alone due to the cutting involved. If you are installing alone, use some jack stands to hold up hitch while you get it onto your bolts. A battery powered impact driver or ratchet go a long way. finger tighten first then hit it with the power tool. 439077

I ordered a towing hitch and wire harness for my 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Etrailer was the only website that had it in stock because of how new the product was. Product arrived in a timely manner without shipping charge. Well worth the money I spent. I wouldn't recommend that a lay person attempt to install as It took my mechanic 3 hours. The hitch itself was easy but hooking up the wiring was very time taking as you must take a lot of the under bladder off to run a wire to the battery. Also not much room to make connections to rear taillight. 293796

Trailer hitch and wiring harness came quickly and in good order. Hitch fit car perfectly. However, the wiring harness connectors would not fit through the body panel because of internal supports and tail light wires, so I had to cut it and splice it under the car. Harness needs to be redesigned to fit through the small channel under the tail lights. Connectors were far too big to be pulled through. 498463

The video available from eTrailer was very helpful in understanding how to install the hitch on my 2017 Pacifica. While the instruction document included information on removing & cutting the underbody panel, there was no mention of it in the video. Using a floor jack, and a little help from a second person, I installed the hitch on my vehicle in my garage in around 3 hours. After removing the underbody panel, and working with the hitch, I found that I didn't have to cut the heat shield as much as identified in the instruction (and referred to in the video), and I significantly reduced the amount of the underbody panel that I cut out (maybe just a third of what the instructions indicate) which meant I only cut out one of the fasteners in the underbody. In case this is helpful for anyone else, I've included pictures of the changes I made). 541302

Absolutely love the quality, the clean look, and the ease of installation that this hitch has. Many other people in this review forum are complaining about that the install video for this specific piece 76046, didn’t review how to get the initial panel off, or how to cut it. #1, the instructions include information regarding this, so read them. #2 it’s a matter of removing some screws, not terribly difficult. However, the install video for the product 36798 contains every step of taking the panel off. So check that out!! That is just a different hitch for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. I had myself and one other person help for the instal. Everything from removal of the first screw to putting the final screw back on during install took just over an hour and a half. Would have taken longer without the extra set of hands. The video was more than enough to be able to do the install yourself. Don’t waste time or money having somebody else install for you. I did it in my driveway and have VERY limited experience working on cars. Couldn’t be happier with this product. Shipping was fast. Didn’t get the electronics as I need the hitch for bike and extra cargo racks. Glad this hitch comes with the mount and option of getting electronics later if needed. 552638

Installation time is longer than stated unless you have someone to help you. I also installed the wiring harness which was tricky . Spent a lot longer trying to fish the wires on the drivers side then on the passenger side. My suggest would to be to look at both the draw-tite and curt installation details before choosing which one to be installed and how much of the underside heat shield that you remove. I might have chosen differently if I had done this. 289197

Excellent hitch for the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. Easy to install and it rides high under the bumper giving a nice finished look. The hitch was delivered two days after ordering. Etrailer continues their history of great service. 517702

Great hitch. A little more difficult to install than , other etrailer hitches I have installed. Probably because of the newer auto design, and that I am older now (91). Looks great, less noticeable, being set more under the van, then the other hitches that I have installed. I am very happy with the looks. Getting the hitch with the complete installation pkg. is the way to go, all comes together in one pkg. Thank you etrailer. 449268

Product arrived days early in excellent condition. And packaging was overkill. Installation went as in video, except: I hadn't looked under vehical untill day of installation and was surprised to find a sound deadening panel. That had to be removed and cut which added an extra 30 minutes to the job. Having a steel manufacturing business, I used to build my own hitches. Sorry! I didn't think about taking any pictures, would have been great for your video. 381316

Best Bang for the buck. I am glad I checked etrailer after shopping around, not only do they have the best price but also the best quality as well. Installing this was not as easy as the video shows it to be because I had to do a lot cutting of the sound deadening material but it was worth it. The video did not show that. But they stand behind the product and called me when I messed something up. Now that I straightened that out I am totally pleased and would do it again. The hitch is first rate and much better quality than the other offerings. 456586

Fit was good and kit was required. Fishing technique to get the screws through was easy and the online video made things much easier. Noticed that upon install, hitch looks to be angled down more than expected, had to buy riser to bring up 6 inches. 525669

Fits nicely on a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. No drilling into the frame is necessary with this one. Only change from the instructions is that the aero panel underneath does not need to be trimmed as radically as the instructions say - just make a cut for the main hitch and a slot for the wire harness cleat and everything can bolt back together nicely. 512699

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • What is Towing Capacity for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • For your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica we have the Draw Tite Hitch part # 76046 which has a pretty high towing capacity of 675 lbs of tongue weight and 4,500 lbs total trailer weight. One thing you have to consider is that a towing capacity for a vehicle is basically the lowest rated component in the setup. So this hitch has a high capacity but your vehicle may be rated much lower and that would be how much you could tow. You would need to check the owners manual of the vehicle to determine this.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
  • I reached out to my contact at Draw-Tite, and you are correct that they just added that adapter. We are adding it to our site to give you the fit you are seeking for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. This will require purchase of the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76046 and also the kit # 76046SK.

  • Towing Capacity for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring
  • I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and it states that for this vehicle without the factory tow package it can pull a trailer that weighs up to 1,500 pounds. For models with the factory tow package this capacity jumps up to 3,600 pounds. I highly recommend verifying this information in your copy of the manual as well. If you do not yet have a trailer hitch installed I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame # 76046. This Class...

  • Comparison between Curt And Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • The biggest difference between the Curt hitch # C13383 and the Draw-Tite # 76046 is the towing capacity and weight distribution capacity. The Curt has a 4000 lb towing capacity and 5000 lbs with weight distribution while the Draw-Tie hitch has a 4,500 lb towing capacity and 5000 lb with weight distribution. Both hitches are corrosion resistant powder coated and require no drilling for installation. I've linked the install details as well as videos on each hitch for you.

  • Towing Capacity of a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Without Factory Tow Package
  • The GVWR of your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the amount of weight the van can fully be loaded to. This includes the van itself, any passengers and cargo, or whatever else you may have stored inside or on the vehicle. The payload is how much weight can be loaded into the van. In theory, the van's weight plus the payload should equal the GVWR. The GVWR does not include the weight of a trailer. If you find GCWR on your van's spec sticker then this is the total amount of weight the van is...

  • Installation of Trailer Hitch on 2018 Chrysler Pacifica?
  • Nope, there will be nothing done to the bumper whatsoever to install Draw-Tite hitch # 76046 in a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. The only modification that will need to be made is the underbody panel needs to be trimmed before being reattached. This is common with trailer hitches and is not something that will be noticeable at all.

  • Does Trimming of Heat Shield of 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hurt Anything

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation that Allows Hands-Free Liftgate of 2018 Chrysler Pacifica to Function
  • For your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica the Draw Tite Hitch part # 76046 is a confirmed fit and would still allow you to use your hands free liftgate. At the very worst you might have to run your foot to either side of the hitch opening but it will still work just fine.

  • To install the Draw Tite hitch # 76046 on your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid requires the shim kit part # 76046SK.

  • Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories Recommendation-2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • The Curt # C13383 Class III trailer hitch includes all necessary installation hardware, which is shown in the photo you provided. Might I make a suggestion? I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 76046 which is a similar design of comparable quality at a more reasonable price. The Draw-Tite hitch also includes all necessary hardware. If you plan on using the hitch for towing purposes, you'll need a few other items to complete your towing system: Trailer wiring harness,...

  • For your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36798 is a confirmed fit and would still allow you to use your hands free liftgate. At the very worst you might have to run your foot to either side of the hitch opening but it will still work just fine. This is a 1-1/4 inch hitch which would work just fine for you for a small trailer or bike rack, but since more accessories are made for 2 inch hitches and they have higher capacities I would recommend you go with the part # 76046...

  • Bike Rack for Electric Bikes on a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
  • I have a solution for you, but there isn't a non-hitch solution for your electric bikes at this time. Most trunk mounted solutions will have a maximum of 30 pounds and the best capacity on a roof rack solution is 50 pounds. After adding in the weight of the roof rack itself and the bike racks to the weight of the bikes, may exceed your roof capacity and risk damage to your vehicle. Instead, I strongly recommend purchasing a hitch and hitch mounted rack for at least the electric bikes,...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Limited

I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level,...

  • Best Way to Carry 2 Bikes on a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • A great bike rack to carry two bikes on the Chrysler is a hitch mount rack like the Thule Camber # TH9058. Hitch mount bike racks are much more stable and secure than a trunk mount and not as difficult to use as a roof mount. A trunk mount will have to be removed whenever you want to access the back of the Pacifica, and it can be pretty challenging to get bikes on and off the roof. The hitch for you is the Draw-Tite # 76046. It's a Class III, 2 inch receiver designed for your 2017...
