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’m not a handy guy and I installed this alone, it’s been a great addition to my 2021 Ram 3500, We use it for a bike rack or beach basket for extra storage when im off roading.




by:

Fits great on my 2020 2500 Ram. Love it . The spare tire housing holds my train horn. The front hitch will hold my spare!




by:

Hitch receiver is too short and too low; currently trying to find a robust extender without much luck so thus far it's not been used unfortunately. I've been putting front mount receiver in every car I have and this is the first time I'm regretting it




by:

Install was easy and straightforward. Only thing I didn't like is mine leans towards the ground and not level so I had to use a riser so my basket that I use to haul my generator wouldn't hit the ground going in and out of some drives with dips.




by:
2019 Ram 2500

Hitch was packaged and boxed well and delivered in 2 days. Very well built hitch. Directions were spot on and the hitch fit perfectly.
Total installation time was less then an hour.




by:

It will not fit...2020 Ram 3500 I cut on it to make fit but no go and I can't return it now for sure lol


Comments
You mentioned that the hitch did not fit for you and I wanted to ask a few questions. Can you explain in more detail how it did not fit? Is your truck a diesel model? Is it a power wagon model?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/28/2022
It is a 2020 Ram 3500 diesel the front radiator oil cooler would hit no way to install that hitch
-- comment by: Gregg - 04/28/2022
This hitch is not a fit for diesel models. For a 2020 Ram 3500 diesel the hitch would be part # EH37FR

2019 Ram 2500

We received the front mount trailer hitch in perfect condition with very fast shipping. The mount is very high quality, very sturdy, and came with excellent instructions for mounting to our truck. We are very pleased with this item and would highly recommend it to anyone considering a front mount hitch.




by:

Great product and easy install. Ram 2500. No drilling for my truck, 6.4L gas engine. In case the diesel is different. Just cut the wind guard with a hacksaw. It’s a little awkward lifting it into place laying under the truck but doable. 2 hours total.




by:
2019 Ram 2500

Fast shipping from etrailer. Haven't installed it yet, but it's pretty beefy and should do the job. Will follow up after the install!




by:

Hitch is great. Fits nicely and install was ok. Only downside was hardware came loose in the box and I was missing a couple of washers and nuts which necessitated a trip to Tractor Supply. Origional bolts on Ram were extremely tight and needed a good breaker bar to move. Install was done with truck on the ground. As a previous user dud I used a motorcycle lift to hold in position until I had two bolts in.




by:
2020 Ram 3500

So glad to get it so quickly. I had a different hitch on order that was back-ordered twice. switched to this one, had it in a few days, not months.




by:
2021 Ram 3500

Very happy

  • Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Fit on 2019 Ram 2500 For Snow Plow
    There is a front-mounted trailer hitch that fits your 2019 Ram 2500 (non-Diesel models) that doesn't require modification to your truck, and will work with a hitch-mounted snow plow. I was unable to find a Fisher X2 model snow plow to see if it was hitch-mounted or frame mounted, but as long as it is hitch-mounted it will work: - Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR There isn't a front hitch that will install in your '19 Ram 2500 if you have a frame-mounted snow plow,...

  • Required Trimming for Draw-Tite Front Hitch On 2021 Ram 2500
    In order to trim the bumper fascia on a 2021 Ram 2500 when installing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT36MR you will need to measure using the diagram in the instructions which I have attached a photo of below. That said, there isn't any sort of template that you transfer onto the vehicle and trace. The cutting is pretty straightforward and easily done with the right tool.

  • Is License Plate Relocation Needed For 2020 Ram 3500 W/ Draw-Tite front Mount Hitch DT36MR Installed
    Since the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR you were looking at for your 2020 Ram 3500 will sit behind the license plate you will want to relocate it, though it may be possible to keep it in the factory location. The reason for this is if you left it in the stock location you would need to remove it each time you want to use the receiver. I recommend the relocation bracket # 5443.

  • Differences Between The Curt And Draw-Tite Front Mounted Hitches For A 2021 Ram 2500
    There isn't much of a difference between the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR and the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31089 since they both have the exact same line pull and vertical load capacities. Even though they are very similar for your 2021 Ram 2500 I recommend going with the Curt over the Draw-Tite because Curt manufactures their hitches right here in America and their powder coating process holds up better than the powder coating of its competitors....

    The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR will fit your 2019 Ram 2500 Limited unless it's a diesel model. The hitch will not interfere with any of the sensors when you have nothing in the receiver. When you ad something such as a bike rack you will need to turn off your forward collision warning. To do this you will need to go into the settings menu on the Uconnect display and turn the forward collision warning off. When turned off you should see FCW OFF on the instrument...

  • Front Hitch Receiver Fit For 2019 Ram 3500 Diesel

    Although Draw-Tite specifically states that the # DT36MR front mounted recevier isn't a fit for Diesel models of the 2019-2021 RAM 3500 because of the intercooler and related plumbing added to Diesel models of your truck, we do offer a front hitch that will fit.

    The Draw-Tite # DT36MR (manufacturer part number 65084) front mount hitch is actually only designed for use on the gas models, so it is not the correct fit for your 2021 Ram 3500 Diesel. The EcoHitch Front Mount Hitch # EH37FR, on the other hand, is designed to fit both the gas and diesel models and will be the hitch I recommend. It is also American made and will have a 10,000 pound line pull capacity and a 1000 pound vertical load limit. Though we do not have an install video for this...

  • Best Front Hitch for 2019 Ram 2500 to Carry Bike Rack
    I can tell you that the Curt # C31089 will sit fairly flush or even slightly behind the farthest edge of the front end of your 2019 Ram 2500, so it's not exactly ideal for a bike rack. A better solution might be the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # DT36MR which has about a 4-1/2" longer receiver tube and will stick out a bit further from the bumper, making it better suited for carrying a bike rack. This front hitch also has a 500-lbs vertical load capacity,...

  • Front Mounted Receiver Hitch Recommended for 2020 Ram 3500 Truck
    We do offer a front mounted receiver for your 2020 Ram 3500, part # DT36MR (does not work with diesel models). The hitch as a vertical pull limit of 500 lbs, which means that as long as the dirt bike and its carrier doesn't weigh more than 500 lbs, it'll work just fine for you. If you don't yet have a carrier, I'd recommend the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033 which can handle bikes weighing up to 500 lbs with tires up to 5 inches wide. Ratchet straps like # EM31353 would work well to secure the...

    We do have a couple options for you, but the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR will not fit your 2021 Ram 2500 with the diesel engine. First is the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31089 which I recommend as it is the easiest to install. This receiver is 500lbs of tongue weight, 5,000lbs trailer weight and is capable of a 9,000lb line pull if you are needing it for a winch. There is no drilling required to mount this receiver but it will involve some trimming...

    From both a cost and a ground clearance/approach angle standpoint I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite # DT36MR front mounted receiver. The Curt # C31089 front hitch you'd looked at is a great item, but it would install so the bottom of the hitch recevier tube would sit even with the bottom of the bumper fascia/air dam. The Draw-Tite # DT36MR would sit at the top of the fascia, even with the underside of the bumper which allows for several more inches of ground clearance. The hitch is...

I also spoke with Draw-Tite and found out that the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR will not fit. In both cases it is due to the factory winch.

If you have a Diesel engine then the Curt # C31089 or EcoHitch # EH37FR are your 2 choices. The Draw-Tite # 65063 will only fit the 2010-2018 model years that came with factory tow hooks. The 2019 and newer trucks have a condenser where this hitch went on the previous models. I prefer the Draw-Tite # DT36MR and EcoHitch # EH37FR over the Curt # C31089 as they do...
