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.

2007 Jeep Wrangler

I bought this receiver to add front mounted 'accessories' on my 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. I plan on using this to add an extra bicycle rack, a cargo basket, a receiver mounted winch or other 'accessories' needed for my Jeep when I take my family camping. It will also be useful for "front launching" a boat or parking a trailer in tight spots.

It took me about an hour to install, although I had already previously removed the lower wind deflector cowling, so did not have to spend time removing it or cutting it for a finished look. Detaching and moving the top trim panel between the grill and the bumper is a must to facilitate the installation.

The receiver fits pretty close, although you do have to manipulate it to get the holes to line up with the frame. Follow the instructions and do not tighten any of the bolts until you get it lined up and all the bolts in loosely, then torque it down.

As noted in the instruction sheet, the driver's side of the receiver does not sit flush against the frame, there is about a 1/4" to 5/8" gap. The instructions say to use the extra split washers (in the kit) as filler, but they would just rattle around loose in there and provide any benefit, so I omitted them.

Once tightened down, the receiver tube was not parallel to the ground, it is slightly higher in the front, sloping towards the rear. It is not off enough to affect my intended use, but may be bothersome to those with type 'A' attention to detail.

Overall a good product that will add a lot of flexibility to my Jeep~

Works great! Have had no issues. I am very pleased with the product

Well-engineered and quality. Perfect fit. But: printed directions were terrible (too small and poorly illistrated). Online photos at etrailer make installation possible. I used [online media] to learn how-to take-out facia fasteners. But best deal is to drill them out and replace since this Wrangler is 10 years old. Getting in the last 2 bolts on driver's side took me 2 hours; but not the fault of the hitch design.
I am happy with overall experience.

Receiver was easy to lmstall .I installed it on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler I love the front hitch. I use for snow plow and boating in summer




by:

I received my front hitch for 2015 Jeep Unlimited right on time. Install Time total with clean up was about 5 hours. I have attached some pictures. Hitch is very well built.
This is exactly what I wanted. Thank you etrailer.

I recently purchased the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver from etrailer.com. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire process. The web sight was extremely easy to navigate the ordering process was simple and flawless, and for my particular order shipping was free. George J at etrailer kept me informed with multiple emails keeping me advised of when my purchase was shipped, and a tracking number to follow my order all the way from the original shipper to final arrival. His contact email and phone number was also provided as well as a follow up email after arrival. My order arrived in etrailers own packaging which was a pleasant surprise and one more sign that they are willing to go the extra mile for their customers and their business. The hitch installation was simple enough. The video on the web sight I believe said about two hours or less with power tools (air or electric). I installed it by myself in the driveway all assembly from underneath with just hand tools in about three hours. If I were to do it again I would use power tools and a step bit to clean out the left side frame holes. It was late in the afternoon and I was taking my time and used a round hand file (old school). I did not remove or loosen the pump (2017 JK Wrangler Unlimited) so it can be done just be patient. Patience and multiple measurement taking on the cowl fitting is also required for a clean install. The hitch will be used for college moving in and out (son and daughter) and beach when I can afford it (son and daughter college). etrailer.com has been first rate from start to finish providing a quality product at a reasonable price with great customer service. I would definitely shop etrailer.com again.

2011 Jeep Wrangler

Installed on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler. Looks well built, all holes lined up but I had to add 1/2" worth of spacers in the driver side of the frame in order to take up space since the hitch seemed to be 1/2" to narrow. The kit did come with 2 extra blocks 1/4" * 1-1/2" * 2". I used these on the 2 tabs that are on the front hitch side in order to make the hitch level. The instructions did not mention this but I was glad to have them. I also had to get 2 new bolts that were 1-1/2" grade 5 bolts since I added the 1/2" spacers to the drivers side of the frame. Over all I am very happy with the install and the product. It seems like I always have to engineer something on my projects and I like to it so it did not bother me to much. I did install the front fascia and I think it makes it look like OEM install.

2011 Jeep Wrangler

Relatively easy install. Just have to be mechanically inclined. We use the hitch to carry a fish rack/cooler on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler. So far so good.

Functional and easy.
Package was delivered
damaged and missing parts. But locally available replacement at hardware store.


Comments
The only thing you have to keep in mind when getting your own hardware for replacement, is to make sure that you are using grade 8 hardware.

The hitch and customer service are great. Be careful if you have the bumper hitch mount as I do, it makes installation a bit harder. The hitch mount place needs to be loosened to get the new receiver in. If I had not already had this in place, installation of the new receiver would have been a piece of cake.
Thank you etrailer.

2014 Jeep Wrangler

Front 2" hitch is on, ready for snow! Looks good. Installation was easy, except for having to enlarge a hole in the frame of the Jeep where the brake booster is. Not an issue from draw-tite or etrailer, but from jeep.




by:
2016 Jeep Wrangler

Very nice quality overall. One of the vertical brackets arrived slightly bent, but it was easily corrected. I would recommend the product to anyone with a Jeep Wrangler JK.




by:
2017 Jeep Wrangler

Fast delivery, install went well on the 2017 JKU Wrangler. Used a “bottle” jack to hold in place to install hardware. Worked great!




by:

Easy installation. I have a tight space to maneuver my trailer through. The front hitch allows me to push the trailer through the tight space rather than backing up.


Comments
Works as intended. Has added more flexibility in moving equipment around my property. Very satisfied with it.

Doesnt fit 2007 Jeep wrangler. 1/4" gap to frame rails on each side

Sorry that you are having trouble. This hitch should fit your vehicle. We have an install video on this particular vehicle which you can view in the link below. Your hitch may be a bit flexed which is an easy fix. Attached are some tips:

2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Received the hitch yesterday and installed it today on my 2009 Jeep Rubicon. This is a front mount hitch so I can drive my boat trailers in to parking garage. Just saying, I am 80 years old. The easiest way to get access to the frame and remove the push pins on the air deflector is just tu drill them out and buy new ones .About $15.00 at Auto Zone. Install the hitch with not problems in about 2 hours start to finish. Only downside awas this old bodydoing the work.

Nice products great price fast service

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

One of the side vertical mounts on the hitch was pretty bent out of th box. Put it in a vise and straightened it out. Definitely remove the grill and spacer at the bumper to work from above, Drivers side is still 1/4” away from the frame. Use the smaller shims included to fill the gap perfectly. 2012 you need to run a drill bit through the lower driver side mounting hole to get the bolt through. With the shim in place the included bolt for the drivers upper hole is to short so grab a longer one for this hole only. Need to remove that booster thing from the frame to get a socket on the upper left mounting bolt. All this takes a lot longer than expected but it’s solid as a rock.

Works great with a Meyers Home Plow.

2018 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited

The product itself appears well made and sturdy. However, that being said, I can only conclude that it is for a 2017 JK and not a 2018. Either that or I got a rare one off chassis under my new jeep. It can be made to fit, but it is anything but a simple bolt on product. Be prepared to grind, bend, and basically take everything including the vapor thing off of the frame/bumper to get this installed.
It is installed, but honestly if I had know what a hassle it was going to be, I would have purchased a new front bumper with a hitch receiver as an integral part.


Comments
Thanks for the follow up Wayne. I am happy to hear that you did get the hitch installed on your 2018 Jeep JK. I did want to let you know that is sounds like the hitch that you received may have been flexed while in shipping. We package the hitches here the best we can but occasionally the hitches do get flexed. I have included a helpful article that explains how to fix a flexed hitch for your reference.

Product is exactly as depicted - instructions are clear. Works perfectly on my Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. Front mounted (hitch mounted) winch is ready to be put to use !!!


Comments
Its been great !!!! I have not had to use it for my winch yet I have it on my Jeep Rubicon, have not been able to get myself stuck bad enough yet. I have used it for carrying a dirt bike on a hitch mounted carrier though. No issues at all !!!

Arrived as promised. Installed hitch in about 2 hours, being an average Joe. Recommend spending time comprehending everything about instructions before diving in. Don't be too conservative trimming on plastic to assure smooth fit & less hassles snapping up shroud later. Nonetheless, hitch fit perfectly and looks great on my 2012 Wrangler.

Using hitch for a front canoe mount. Fits my need well
