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. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

You guy's knocked it out of the park on this one. Arrived in a beat up box due to the weight and shipping, not a problem (no damage and everything was there). I took a short glance at the instruction's ( simple and easy to understand). Grabbed my creeper and floor jack, socket, extension and ratchet. Installed bolts in frame, balanced the hitch on my floor jack and up it went. Bolt's lined up perfect. I'm 67 year's old and I did this by myself in about 15-20 minutes. Fast shipping, excellent quality, easy to install it just dose not get any better. Thank You!


Great looking and easy install


Works well

1995 Dodge Ram Pickup

fit perfect. looks good. and a good price. was able to buy a wiring "splitter" {brakes,signals and idle lights} at my local auto store. got it all installed. need to torque everything still. it was a satisfying installation, on my dodge ram from 95.

if i may recommend something, on your website to 'suggest' buying kits for wiring in trailer lights. kind of like how other websites uses the "buyers also get this" right under the product

That would be a super convenient feature to have! The trouble is, this particular hitch fits many different model year Ram trucks, but the wiring harness can vary from model year to model year, or it can vary according to how the vehicle is equipped. This is why at the top of the home page for our website, we have a fitguide where you can input your vehicle year, make and model. As you work your way through, you can choose the correct parts for your vehicle depending on how its equipped.

It was easy to mount to my truck all hard ware made it easy buy it use it

1998 Dodge Ram-Pickup

Great service! Was kept informed the entire time up until delivery. The products were as described and the installation of the hitch, wiring harness, and connector bracket was less than 1 hour.


The parts inside look like they have been in a truck riding around since I ordered them.. some back in May

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

1998 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The product fit perfectly and looks good, the only problem was that on my 1998 Dodge 1500 Sport 6 1/2 foot bed that the hole for mounting on the frame toward the front of the vehicle had to be drilled and on the passenger side the exhaust was in the way and had to buy a $20 extended drill bit to drill the hole in the frame. Other than that everything went fine.


Ok, I’m impressed. Someone said it was a 30 minute job. Wrong. Took me 15. Had one bolt not wanting to go in. One push with a small pry bar and everything dropped into place. Torqued it up to specs, installed the ball and was done in less time than it takes to write this. Rarely impressed with manufacturers claims but this one is spot on. No drill, no trouble, no problem. Thanks for a good product.

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

This is a great receiver for light weight duty. I bought it for my boat and it tows well.
It may be just certain models but as was stated previously - I did have to drill the 2 forward holes on my 2001 Ram 1500 short bed. It wasn't too much of a problem except on the passenger side where the muffler is in the way. Just unscrew the hanger and move out of the way. Drilled a 1/16 pilot hole then used my step drill to finish - added about 45 mins to the install. Other than that the receiver is perfect for what I needed.

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

I rated this the way I did because the product description said "no drilling required". I found this WAS NOT the case with the hitch that I received. The four rear holes lined up with the holes in the frame of my truck, however, the 2 front holes did not and needed to be drilled. This was a big step that I was not prepared for with a cordless drill and dull drill bits...


My hitch came to my house in only a couple days. I wanted one that didn't require any drilling or moving the spare tire and this one worked perfectly. I would highly recommend etrailer to anyone needing a hitch or accessories.


Have not used it yet but it looks like it will the only thing it didn't get here for a long time

1996 Dodge Ram Pickup

Thank you Carol C, I did recieve my hitch this afternoon. I am 70 years old, and have COPD, with oxygen 24/7. The hitch fit perfectly on my 96 Dodge Ram 1500. I installed the hitch by myself in 35 minutes. I am grateful for your superb service. Than you, Terry Watson.


Bought this to haul my dirt bike around on a motorcycle rack. Works great. No problems at all. Great service from etrailer as usual.

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

The hitch went right on looks great and just right on. I would recommend you all to everyone. And as far as shipping I couldn't have a auto supply have got it to me as fast as you all did Thank you

This is working great

Shipped and received quickly, hitch fit my 01 dodge 4 wheel drive perfectly. Hardware set was complete 20 minute job from start to finish . Thank you !

1997 Dodge Ram Pickup

Easy installation and perfect fit. Fast shipping! Great product!

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

This fit my 1999 Dodge 1500 perfectly. Bolted up with no issues.
Ordering with eTrailer was so easy and shipping arrived a day early.


Excellent product, fit was good, works good, only thing is receiver is a bit too far under rear bumper.


Trailer hitch works excellent. It's been 1 year and haven't had any issue. It was very easy to install and looks good. Thank you!

1998 Dodge Ram Pickup

Super fast shipping, hitch is nice. Didn't have all the hardware, had to buy some. But still great price. Thanks

1997 Dodge Ram Pickup

The product arrived on time as promised and in the Box was in great shape I haven't opened it yet but I'm sure the product will be just as expected since I've dealt with etrailer before never had a problem.


Received package extremely fast. Reasonably price and installed in about 20 minutes


Awesome quality,and perfect match. Love doing businesses with these people. Always there to help. Again thanks

  • Will Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Interfere with Spare Tire on 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 with Standard Bumper
    The Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75101 will not interfere with your spare tire. I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and she confirmed that there is no interference. The installation instructions for the # 75101 trailer hitch are linked for you. This hitch is confirmed to fit a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 with a standard or a step bumper, and will install in the pre-drilled frame holes on your vehicle. Our installation notes indicate that it will not fit trucks with a roll pan...

  • Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for a 1998 Dodge Ram Sport 4x4 with Factory Roll Pan
    If you have a 6 foot or 8 foot bed with the standard or step bumper then the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75101 would be the correct hitch for you. If you have a deep drop bumper then you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 41504. I attached a picture of what a deep drop bumper typically looks like for you to determine if you have it or not. Both of these hitches are Class III and would work well for you.

  • Trailer Hitch Compatibility with 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75101 will not fit models with the roll pan bumper. This bumper is molded and normally painted to match the truck and be flush with the tailgate like the attached photo. If you have this bumper style, then you will instead use the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 40050. Your bumper is not a roll pan based on your question, so you can use the Draw-Tite # 75101.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1998 Dodge Ram
    The factory tow package usually contains both a trailer hitch and trailer wiring harness so I will assume these are the parts you are referring to but for future reference they do not always contain the same components. The trailer hitch from your 2000 Dodge Durango WILL NOT fit your 1998 Dodge Ram as they do not share the same frame but I do have an option for you. For your Ram I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75101 which is a custom fit and has a...

  • Cost Effective Trailer Hitch for a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500
    The rear bumper support tube is not present on a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 therefore you cannot use the Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98852 or one similar for that matter. Instead, you will need to use a frame mount trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75101. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver installs using pre-drilled holes in the frame. It comes with all of the hardware required to do so. I have attached a copy of the installation...

This Class III hitch is confirmed to fit your Dodge Ram with the step bumper and will use existing holes in the truck's frame for a no-drill installation. This hitch will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and a 5,000 pound towing capacity. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can take a look at.

I recommend the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver # BWHDRH25132 as it is the only USA made trailer hitch receiver for your 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup that does not require drilling and will fit both long and short bed models with the standard or step rear bumper.

Instead I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75140 which is confirmed to fit your Ram 1500 Van and has the same 500lb tongue weight rating and 5000lb trailer weight rating as the # 75101.

All aftermarket trailer hitch fits for the long bed with standard/step bumper are shown on the linked page.

  • Capacity of Hitch 75101 Using Weight Distribution to Tow an RV with a 2000 Dodge Ram
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75101, is rated high enough (8,000 pounds GTW with WD). The limiting factor is how much your vehicle can tow. Check your owners manual to see what the towing capacity of your vehicle is and do not exceed it. I have included a link to the instructions for this hitch below. When towing that much weight, I recommend using a brake controller if you do not already have one. One of our most popular models is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885-3020-P....
