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.

I do believe that Drawtite has dropped the ball on this one. I have a 2018 Ram 4x4 EcoDiesel which “had” factory tow hooks. This hitch is well made but I wanted to retain my tow hooks. This is my second Drawtite hitch, the other a class V hitch for wife’s 2020 Ram 4x4 Warlock. Again hitch well built but holes for four bolts did not line up. Seemed like part of hitch was pulled in. Both sets of instructions were in a word “lacking” in detail.

Thank you for your review! Sometimes a hitch can become flexed in shipping. I have attached a link to our help article that has a few ways to straighten out a flexed hitch, as this is a common occurrence.

I purchased the front mount hitch for my 2018 Ram 1500. It is now fully installed and working great. Its a 2 man job for a while during the mounting and drilling process. The directions were good. I watched some you tube videos of the process to help me better visualize all that needed to be done. I specifically want to give a shout out to the staff at etrailer for the ordering process and the follow up they had with shipping and some follow up questions I had. I talked to at least 3 different people by either phone or email and all were very helpful and knowledgeable on the products I purchased. I will purchase from etrailer again as they have exceptional service.


Comments
The front hitch has worked perfectly while using the snow plow. It is also very conveniently tucked under the truck when not in use.

This front-mount hitch works great for putting travel trailer into tight RV Garage (West Coast Metal Building). I don't have a straight shot into the garage, and trying to back the trailer into the garage is do-able but takes many, many tries. This hitch makes it easy to maneuver the trailer while facing forward in the truck.

Since the front hitch receiver is relatively low to the ground, I needed to get a high-rise ball mount. The riser part of this interferes a little but with the truck's under-bumper flexible fascia, but does not damage it.

I also purchased a 2" black rubber hitch receiver cover (plug) to keep water out of the receiver.

One thing - be careful when pulling up to parking lot curbs. Ground clearance of this hitch is relatively low and I have hit a couple of curbs with it. Thankfully the hitch itself and the mounting points on my Ram 1500 are very strong, and no damage was done other than mangling the rubber hitch receiver cover a bit.

Note: I built a wood frame to support the hitch during installation, since I did not have a helper to hold it while installing the attachment bolts.

This front hitch receiver for my 2016 RAM 1500 works great! The installers did not have to cut the facia under the nose of the truck. The hitch fits tight against the facia, but no cutting needed. They did have to drill some holes, but I used professional installers, so I'm not worried. This finally solves my problem of not having anywhere to mount my two bikes while towing my 23' camper. The options for camper bike racks don't work for us for several reasons. Glad I can take my bikes with me on my Saris rack. I purchased an adapter and pin to allow my 1 1/4" bike rack to fit in the 2" receiver. I also purchased the hitch receiver cover separately.

DodgeRam Pickup

I love it!! I use it for pushing my pontoon into the garage at the cabin for the winter, and pushing my 24' travel trailer into my back yard after a camping trip. Install was fairly easy. Only issue was I had to enlarge the hole for the square piece that goes into / through the frame, but this possibility was mentioned in the instructions. Hopefully this will fit my next Ram. If not, I will definitely purchase a new one.



by:
2012 DodgeRam Pickup

Hitch fit my 2012 Ram 1500 Sport perfectly. I was not a fan of having to cut-out a bigger hole in the frame to pass the carrier bolt plates through. I tapped a hole and bolted it from underneath. Overall, recommend this hitch, but if you have the ability to tap a hole in the frame, it is a much easier option.



by:

Installation was easy and pretty quick. My only complaint, which has nothing to do with the quality of the hitch. Is that I use it to mount my 12000 winch to the front. Reduces the attack angle greatly.



by:
DodgeRam Pickup

Hitch worked great on the front of my Ram. Exactly what I wanted. The only thing I didn’t realize (which is probably my fault for not reading the install instructions prior to purchasing) is that the hitch required drilling two holes in the truck frame while leveraging two existing holes in the frame. I took it to a truck shop and they welded it on for a few bucks instead of drilling the two holes.



by:
2018 DodgeRam Pickup

I installed this myself on the front of my 2018 Ram 1500 for a light duty snowplow.

It required drilling a couple of holes in the frame of the truck which was clearly disclosed in the product install information available to me prior to making the purchase decision, so that was fine. It was also made clear that I would probably need to remove my factory tow hooks, and that was indeed the case. Not a problem for me, as the hitch is a lot more useful to me than the hooks were.

I used the hitch all winter plowing several residences and had zero issues or concerns. A good value, easy enough to install, and I'm glad I bought it.

Great!

The hitch comes with complete instructions for mounting. I installed mine in about 30 minutes. The hitch is good quality. This is the 3 rd front hitch I installed on 3 different trucks. Great use for boat trailers and I use a winch mount on mine at times.



by:
2018 Ram 1500

The hitch was fairly inexpensive (made in Mexico) and fitment was right. The biggest challenge was grinding the holes for the spacer blocks to slide into the frame. Two hex bolts and two carriage bolts with nuts mount it to frame. Sits pretty low to the ground; thus the skid shield. Should make it easier to move trailers and also act as a mounting point for a winch.

I'm 72 and installed this front hitch with ease. Slightly reduced lag bolt plates and had to remove tow hooks from my 2014 Ram 1500 4x4. Other than that, no problems. Feels solid.

Besides making the holes a little bit bigger so the metal spacers fit,
This job was a breeze.
I did it by myself in an hour and 40 minutes.
Product is awesome and made 100%.
Shipping was extremely fast.
Will be ordering one for my Chevy Silverado.
Highly recommend.

Went up nice and easy! Looks fantastic! BAM!
I'm ready to use my DR Redi plow

Super fast delivery. Only thing is UPS beats the hell out of the boxes these hitches come in.



by:
2014 Ram 1500

This hitch is an extremely useful item. It installed easily and is very heavy duty. It makes moving trailers around much easier and I use it for my snowplow too.
Great item. Great service.
Thanks.

This setup works great and is super strong. I will be using all winter with my hitch mounted plow again this year. It was worth every penny and more!

Excellent customer service. A few chips on the lock and load cargo trailer out of the box (looks to be factory issue) shipping was professional items wrapped and well protected. Fast shipping. Would buy from this seller again.



by:

Wow....great phone service...fast delivery of my order. Would recommend to everyone....and will use etrailer again!!



by:

Very fast delivery. The product was sticking out of the box approx 4" on one part.There is no packing material to prevent the part from tearing the box. There was no damage done.

It arrived this afternoon and I installed it same day looks great

2013DodgeRam Pickup

Took me about 3-4 hrs to install, it fits but beware this does require a good amount of modification. Had to drill into frame and widen the slots on the side of the frame to fit the rectangular nut (using a file attachment on my drill). Even after all the drilling is done getting the bolt through the drilled hole with the lead wire was a serious struggle because the hole is 1/2" and the bolt is 1/2" but the lead wire around the bolt adds 1/16" so I had to file a knotch for the wire to fit through. I'd recommend drilling a 9/16" hole to have more wiggle room and not fight with the wire. 4/5 for pain in the ass installation but it works great for mounting my bike rack on the front of my 2013 ram 1500, no room on my back end since I'm hauling a camper



by:

Great service & a good front hitch



by:
2016 Ram 1500

PRETTY EASY INSTALLATION, ONLY. THING IT SHOULD BE NOTED TO REAM OUT THE 1/2 DRILL HOLES AS THE WIRE BOLT PULL WIRE IS VERY TIGHT. WIRE BOLT PULLER WILL FIT THROUGH THE WHOLE BUT WHEN PLACED ON THE BOLT IT EXPANDS AND MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO THREAD THROUGH THE 1/2 INCH DRILLED HOLE.



by:

The only thing that I can think of is that it is a good thing that I had someone else install it for me. I did not have all the tools to do it myself. Usually I am a do it yourself person. And it took longer than originally thought to install it.



by:
DodgeRam Pickup

I ordered this product for my RAM 1500 so I could mount a plow on it. It has worked fantastic last year and I look forward to yet another year of snow removal. You just cannot go wrong with the products that eTrailer offers. Great pricing, fast delivery and easy installation instructions.

Thank you!
