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.

2016 Ram 1500

This receiver fit well and overall was easy to install with basic tools. The most challenging part is drilling the frame to the appropriate size for the rear fasteners to allow the carriage bolts to be pulled through. I recommend installing the lead wire onto the carriage bolts and feeding the lead wire through the drilled hole the opposite way it will be installed as a test fit to be pulled through. Make sure it slides through with the lead wire then pull it back out and grind or proceed if it fits easily. During the actual installation, I couldn't manage to get the lead wire through the the drilled hole from the access hole so I passed the bolt end of the lead wire through until I could fish it out through the access hole prior to attaching it to the bolt/washer. I also had to grind the carriage bolt washers (which go inside the frame) by about 1/8" to slide them through the existing access hole. Online, others mentioned opening up the hole on the frame but that just begs the frame to rust prematurely and I'm not sure the washer would have set flat when compared to the width of the frame. It must be flat or you'll never get the carriage bolt to seat and there's no easy easy to get it back out once it's in. Cutting the facia will be easy enough if you choose to do it. I did not cut it as it's only slightly bent up over the receiver. I may at some point but it's not a must do.

Dodge Ram Pickup

This hitch works great after a modification of the front end of my truck (A Dodge RAM 1500 Quad Cab) In order to get a good clearance for going over a curb at the end of my driveway I needed to have a leveler kit added to the front suspension to bring the front end up 2 inches.


Hitch works great---I use it for my Meyer Home Plow in the winter. I can also use it to push a trailer into place going forward with my truck. Installation was moderately easy and it fits well.

2018 Ram 1500

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.

Dodge Ram Pickup

Will be having it installed later this month with San Diego Trailer Supply. Appreciated the customer help in making sure it was the right hitch for my Ram 1500.


The product was great except the packaging was terrible. During shipping the hitch had ripped through the box and scratched up terribly. I had to repaint entire hitch. You can’t ship a receiver hitch in a single layer box. Especially if it’s traveling clear to Minnesota. Come on guys, Do Better!!!!!!

2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

I ordered this hitch for a 2019 ram classic eco diesel and it works out great! I would definitely recommend it!


Easily install, didn't have to alter or cut into my facia. I did trim a little off one side of the square metal spacers that the supplied carriage bolts sit into, that way I didn't have to cut into my chassis to get them inside the chassis took about 45 minutes to complete the install with one person. I used my trolley jack to support the unit and jack it into place to drill the 1/2" holes.

2017 Ram 1500

Haven't installed it yet but it arrived super quick & looks like it's going to work on my Rebel. Will be able to retain towing hooks as well. Awesome service!

2018 Dodge Ram Pickup

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.

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

Dodge Ram Pickup

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.


Even after a year, this receiver is working great.


Buy from Etrailer, excellent folks and service!

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

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.

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.

Dodge Ram 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.

2015 Ram 1500

The hitch looks good sitting in my shop. Unfortunately none of the installation parts, nuts, bolts, fish wire, etc came with it. So basically it's useless until I get the rest of the order. I emailed them today, I'll update the review if and when I get them.


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.

2019 Ram 1500 Classic

etrailer is great. shipping, tech support , and product was great

2012 Dodge Ram 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.

2010 Ram 1500

The hitch performed very well.
Once I got it on & the blade on I started doing what everyone said I couldn't, clearing the snow away from a plant for employees & truck traffic. I had to add 2 plates on my Nissan for strength than hit the road blowing-going.

Thank you,
Bill W

Dodge Ram 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.

2020 Ram 1500 Classic

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.

2012 Ram 1500

spacers could be smaller

2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

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.
