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.

2019 Toyota Tundra

These is an excellent hitch at an excellent price. The install was easy and all the hardware that is needed is in the box. I chose the Drawtite over the Curt because the receiver end is a little longer. It' not even noticeable on the truck. I have a snow plow that attaches to the hitch. The Toyota cap shown in the picture was not included. The Tundra is a 2020 so I can confirm if fits.


Comments
Hitch has been working as expected. After one year it still looks as good as when I installed it. They use alot of road salt where I live but the hitch has no rust on it.
Davie R - 12/24/2020

by:

Installation wasn't very difficult. I was very happy to add a hitch to the front of my truck. I installed to be able to put a hitch mounted winch or bike rack. The pictures others have posted how it sits on the truck. I found that it sits to far back from the bumper for my needs. Everything I need to attach needs and extension to clear the bumper. I wouldn't repurchase and install if I knew. The hitch itself is manufactured well and works as expected for a bolt on application.


Comments
Thank you for reaching out! I wanted to recommend a hitch extender. I attached a link to our products and there are varying lengths to choose from depending on your needs.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 04/25/2022

The product, the packaging and delivery, the instructions were all near perfect. You must torque the bolts, so make sure you have the tool. This hutch really saved us getting our trailer into/out of the narrow side yard. On my Tundra it means some the skid plate bolts are now hidden, so I made a door in it to allow oil filter access.



by:

I added the etrailed motorcycle carrier and now I carry my 250cc motorcycle with this set up and it works just fine.


Comments
Great. It is exactly what I wanted for my 08 Tundra. Easy to install, even for an old man.

We have a truck camper, and needed more room for our camping equipment. Purchased this front hitch from etrailer, and it has been awesome. Have used it to carry our generator, and bought a cargo tray that we use also. Love it! Thanks!



by:
2021 Toyota Tundra

Easy install on a 2021 Tundra and seems like it will do the job. The bolts were long enough to accomodate an aftermarket skid plate. But the crooked and haphazardly affixed etrailer sticker was an immediate no. The Tundra receiver plug in the photo was not included.


Comments
I apologize for the sticker placement. I believe the Tundra hitch cover you are referring to is on a customers photo of their install. This is not included in the hitch receiver purchase.

I use it all year in winter months my bear plow is in it and summer season I use it for a bike rack and extra cargo carrier.



by:
2016 Toyota Tundra

Well built product, all hardware included, perfect fit, flawless transaction



by:

We use this with an aluminum rack to haul a Honda 150cc scooter when we go camping. The only negative is how low it is -- ended up buying a 2" riser/extension which made it much more functional. Not really the fault of the hitch, just the reality of the mounting points. If you end up needing a riser make sure you get one with the proper weight rating as some are just made for lightweight bicycle racks.



by:

Hitch worked perfect and thanks for the instructions . My only regret is that I didn't think about drilling a hole in the skid plate myself for changing the oil filter ha! Again thanks hitch work perfect and looks good !



by:

Yes , my 2019 tundra is beach ready and the fishing rods are not broken.... with the front hitch and rod cooler on the front the 4x4 on the beach is that much easier. Yes 3 friends are looking at doing the same setup. I added a flag to remind me there is 3 extra feet in front of the truck when the rods are not in the holders.



by:

I was sent an item that has scratches and chips in the paint which need to be addressed to avoid rust as some already are showing rust signs. Even the darn stickers were applied with no thought as they are really crooked. Product also real dusty for something allegedly made in 5/21. If this were purchased from a brick and mortar store I would have returned it immediately. As it stands I have no time to deal with internet returns.


Comments
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.

2012 Toyota Tundra

Hitch was delivered to my house in excellent condition. Box was not damaged at all. The hitch fits perfectly on the front of my Toyota Tundra and is well built. Will work great for all the accessories you want to hook up to it.



by:
2012 Toyota Tundra

For my 2012 Toyoda Tundra, the installation is very simple and straight forward. Remove the 4 bolts holding the 2 front tow hooks in place. Position the new front hitch between the tow hooks and the frame, then install the 4 new bolts. The hitch is now directly bolted to the truck frame and the tow hooks are still usable.


Comments
I am very pleased with the Draw-Tite front mount receiver.
Charles R - 09/21/2020

Worked as expected. Complete with parts and easy install. Will purchase another for my other tundra.



by:
2021 Toyota Tundra

Arrived on time per Fedex tracking. Installed in 20 mins w/out any issues. Will have to wait till snow flies for further reviews. Hitch is for snow plow. Thanks.



by:

I’m very satisfied with this product



by:

Perfect fit! One year later and the bolts are still tight. I hit a deer recently and am convinced the front hitch minimized damage to my truck. Very useful!



by:

Easy(ish) to install. A second set of hands makes things go so much quicker. The instructions were clear. The customer service was outstanding. UPS lost the hitch but Jodi reordered a new one right away.



by:

very easy to install ... used the existing front tow hook bolts. Excellent way to carry bikes when towing a trailer / raft.



by:
Toyota Tundra

Works just as I had hoped. Easy to install, looks good on vehicle. I use it mainly to hold a rod and cooler rack on my Tundra. The bolt and bracket keeps
it from rattling. High quality, good price.



by:
2019 Toyota Tundra

The eTrailer staff is always professional, responsive and helpful. My go-to for all my trailer needs.



by:

Item came quick,haven't installed yet, hope it goes smooth



by:

Better service than purchase thru [online vendor]. Hitch was properly packaged unlike shipment from [online vendor] that was damaged probably due to poor packaging. Price was competitive!



by:

Fast shipping. Confident shipping with all the information provided. Thank you!

  • Does Skid Plate of 2016 Toyota Tundra Need to be Modified to Install Front Hitch
    There is a 4 inch diameter hole that needs to be cut in the skid shield of your 2016 Toyota Tundra to be able to install the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65080 that you referenced. I attached a diagram that shows where it will be.

  • Will the Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Toyota Tundra Work with a Bull Bar/Brush Guard
    In order to install a front mount trailer hitch on a 2007 Toyota Tundra like the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65080 which is what I recommend you'll need to remove any existing bush guard or bull bar. The reason for this is because the two almost always use the same mounting holes for installation. That said, this is the case for almost every vehicle not just a Toyota Tundra. The front mount trailer hitch is going to be much more functional than a bull bar or brush...

    Starting with the tow hooks, those will remain on your 2020 Toyota Tundra when installing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65080. They will be temporarily removed, but will be bolted back on. In regards to the hole, there is a small hole you will need to enlarge in the skid shield to allow for access to the oil filter. And as for how much hangs down, it will be the crosstube of the hitch. I have added a photo a customer sent in of this hitch installed on their 2020...

    From what I could find, the skid plate on your 2020 Tundra will need to be removed to create a four inch hole for oil filter access, and then either reattached or it may be left off. I included a picture from the instructions that shows where to cut the hole if you decide to reinstall it as well.

    The two front mount hitches available that are confirmed to fit your 2015 Toyota Tundra, the Draw-Tite # 65080 and the Curt # 31198, are extremely similar to each other and differ only in their slight design variation. Both hitches will provide a 2 inch receiver opening with a 500 vertical load maximum and 9,000 pound line pull capacity. The only real difference between the two models is that the Draw-Tite # 65080 has a receiver tube that protrudes a bit further forward than the Curt....

They do have identical specs since they both have a 9,000 pound line pull and 500 pound vertical load. Both have a 2 inch recevier opening. Both bolt to your Tundra's frame and do not require any drilling. The largest difference is going to be the appearance once either is installed.

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver and Oil Changes for a 2012 Toyota Tundra
    Customers have stated that in order to change the oil on a 2012 Toyota Tundra with front mount hitch # 31198 installed they have had to either leave off the skid plate or modify it to avoid having to take it and the hitch off every time the oil needs to be changed. The other front receiver option that fits your truck, # 65080, requires removal of the skid plate so it would not be an issue unless you wanted to keep the ski plate..

The installation instructions are attached, and the very first step is to remove the hooks, but, keep them to reinstall later.

    I checked with Draw-Tite and front mount hitch # 65080 is listed as a fit for all models of the 2014 Toyota Tundra. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Prior to installing the hitch and plow, make sure to check the front axle weight rating to make sure it can be used with a plow. The hitch itself is rated for 500 pounds vertical load and a maximum of 9,000 pounds straight line pull (if using a winch).

  • Will Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65080 Fit a 2008 Toyota Tundra TRD with Off Road Package
    The Draw-Tite front mount hitch # 65080 is listed as fitting all styles of the 2008 Toyota Tundra. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch has a 500 pound vertical load capacity but you need to determine the capacity of the front axle to know if you can add a carrier and bike to the the front of the truck. Front mount hitches are made more for winching applications where there is not as much vertical load.

    The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65080 is my recommendation for you based on cost and features. The installation of this hitch is nearly identical to the Curt # 31198. The Draw-Tite has a measurement of 7-1/2 inches from the crossbar to the end of the receiver tube. The Curt receiver has a measurement of 4-5/8 inches from the crossbar to the end of the receiver tube. The weight ratings of the hitches are identical, so the 2-7/8 inch difference in...

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-tite Front Hitch for 2019 Toyota Tundra
    The biggest difference between the Curt front hitch part # 31198 and Draw-tite front hitch part # 65080 is that the Draw-tite receiver tube extends out more than the Curt by over an inch. This makes it more visible when nothing is mounted to it. However, it can also help with clearance. When putting an accessory in the hitch there is less of a chance of it coming in contact with the front of your Tundra. Other than that, they aren't much different from each other. They have the same...

    The Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31198 and the Draw-Tite # 65080 for your 2018 Toyota Tundra are indeed just about identical in terms of their capacities and where they will mount on the truck. One thing that does differentiate the two models, and the reason I recommend the Curt, is the fact that the Curt # 31198 is made right here in the USA while the Draw-Tite hitch is made overseas.

What they will do is prevent you from removing the skid shield, which will block access to the oil filter. You can remove the skid shield entirely and leave it off permanently, or you can cut a 4-5 inch diameter access hole through the skid shield in the area directly under the oil filter.
