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.

Came pretty fast and was more sturdy and well built than I expected. Installed it myself in the driveway with no lift. Was a touch difficult mainly because of the limited space under the van but still doable and instructions were easy to follow. I also watched the [online] from etrailer on how to install which helped me understand the fish wire technique. Otherwise, I would have taken 3 times as long. One tip is to have the right size sockets, a torque wrench, and be gentle on the plastic nut/washer things that attach the felt to the underside. I stripped one plastic one and had the wrong size socket for the big nuts.

Still solid, no issues, haven’t visualized any rust either up here in Iowa.

The draw-tite Max Frame Trailer Hitch. Is pretty straight forward. I put it on the same day as the delivery. It took me about 3.5 hours to install. It's pretty easy to do. I used a jack stand and a car jack. I rate the installation of this as 5 out of 10.


Comments
My draw Tite trailer hitch is working great. I use it on the regular.it*s the same as fatory or better.

Was not to hard to install on my 2021 Pacifica. You do not have to cut out as much of the underneath panel as stated in the instructions. You definitely need two people to do some of the installation.




by:
2019 Chrysler Pacifica

Trailer hitch fits as described and went on without any issues. If you have any questions their videos explain the steps for the install. High quality materials and looks great on the van!




by:

I ordered the hitch and it got here in just a few days...
Put it in by myself with jack, jack stands , laying on my back/creeper..
Including taking the hitch out of the box , jacking the vehicle up, and modifying so bolts will slide in the frame, plus cut shield, and undercover it took about 2 hours total to install.
The measurements and directions were accurate.
good product.
Would recommend for the DIY guy.


Comments
Ive had the hitch about a year... I installed it myself and it was fairly easy... It works fine does what I need it to do... Im very looks oriented... So I think it hangs down a little to low... but thats just my opinion...
Bill S - 01/07/2022
Mine seems to be angled down a little, towards the ground. Is that what you experienced? I might try to add some washers at the front to correct it.

Great price from etrailer. Hitch was relatively easy to install with basic tools on a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. I'm not a mechanic but tackle many DIY projects. Took me about 2 hours to install. Instructions were good and I found a YouTube video showing install of the same hitch that was very helpful.




by:
2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The video available from eTrailer was very helpful in understanding how to install the hitch on my 2017 Pacifica. While the instruction document included information on removing & cutting the underbody panel, there was no mention of it in the video. Using a floor jack, and a little help from a second person, I installed the hitch on my vehicle in my garage in around 3 hours. After removing the underbody panel, and working with the hitch, I found that I didn't have to cut the heat shield as much as identified in the instruction (and referred to in the video), and I significantly reduced the amount of the underbody panel that I cut out (maybe just a third of what the instructions indicate) which meant I only cut out one of the fasteners in the underbody. In case this is helpful for anyone else, I've included pictures of the changes I made).




by:

The entire transaction and experience was great. I am not a mechanic and I installed this in my driveway by jacking up the rear of my minivan about six inches and just crawling around under there. There were two times when I needed help from a second person: 1.) removing the exhaust mount pins from the rubber mounts without a special tool that I didn't know exists to do this; and 2.) holding one side of the hitch up in the air while I held and fastened the first side of the hitch to the frame. It took me 5 hours because I'm not fast and I don't like to backtrack due to errors. If you have access to a lift and the exhaust removal tool, this could take 3 hours. If you're experienced at this specific thing, you could do it in under 2 hours. My ONLY criticism of the process is that there are two photos in the instructions that are not good. The photos show where you should cut the heat shield and cut the undercarriage protector plate so that they can each be reinstalled around the hitch. I wasn't comfortable using the poor photos to blindly cut the shield and plate - so I took them in and out of position several times to make my own, customized cuts. It went fine - just took longer. Better photos in the instructions wouldn't have made the outcome any different but would have saved me about 40 minutes of fussiness.

I am giving 5 stars. The photos in the instructions that I referenced above weren't even necessary, so there's no reason to take stars/points away. In fact, I appreciate that the photos were there at all, in an effort to help further than just saying "trim to fit."

Shipping was lightning fast and everything was exactly as described and shown on the website. I was very satisfied and wish more transactions were as smooth and as clear as this one was.

Very nice hitch and components... the install went fine, even for this 68 year old in the driveway by himself.

Very durable - no problems.

Appears to be well built. And the install was pretty straight forward following an online tutorial. Happy with how it looks and really liked the price. Only things keeping me from 5 stars was that the paint was chipped I believe during shipping and handling as the box it came in was pretty beat up. Judging by how the paint chipped I do not have high expectations that the rest of the paint is bonded that well. The paper instructions were not very good, but luckily the Video tutorial was top notch. Only think that I wish the video had was some comment on a ground wire that my Chrysler Pacifica limited 2017 had on the drivers side. I had to take the hitch back off to make adjustments for that ground wire. Overall very happy with the purchase. One last note the hands free lift gate feature of a limited trim is not hindered by this hitch. I wave my foot one either side of the hitch and the rear gate pulls right up.


Comments
I recommend touching up the areas that are chipped with a rust resistant paint. It will be beneficial to have the paint on hand for regular hitch maintenance.

Custom
Fit -Class III -2” heavy made went right in place like the looks of the hitch




by:
Chrysler Pacifica

Fit my Pacifica well. Did it myself. Was a bit of work, but the instructions were easy to follow. Looks as good as the factory hitch, in my opinion. Had a defective part, but Etrailer was responsive and took care of it quickly.




by:

Mostly the hitch is positive. The spacing between the end mounting brackets is to narrow. There is extra round tube on left side to allow for a different position before welding. A quart inch may be enough to get a better fit.
I made cuts to accommodate the projections. The large cut out suggested seemed to course. All factory hardware was retained. The heat shield needed a small area of the rear corner to be trimmed.




by:

Very pleased with the product! The installation went well! The installation instructions stated some 'trimming' of an aluminum exhaust heat shield would be necessary. I did not have to 'trim' as much as was 'suggested'. I would recommend this product to a friend!




by:

Very well designed and works great. Etrailer installation video really helped for the install. Would buy again.




by:
2018 Chrysler Pacifica

Very fast delivery of the hitch and the associated wiring kit and bracket for same. The instructions are pretty good, but the installation videos on the etrailer site are EXCELLENT! This is quite a robust assembly and is of the highest quality...much better than I expected.




by:

Install videos extremely helpful. Had to run out to get a torque wrench with higher foot/lbs. rating than the one I had. Was able to put it on in my driveway with car ramps. I cut the fabric material tighter than instructions say, but I don’t need lights.




by:
2021 Chrysler Pacifica

Great product. Fits amazing. I didn’t cut the shields down as far as the instructions said so it’s more of a tighter fit to look factory. But hitch fits perfectly on Pacifica and tight to bumper for max clearance underneath




by:

Fits perfectly and easy to install bought it for a bike carrier and it looks very heavy duty

Still holding strong

Installed on a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica. Directions are straight forward, it was easy to install. Would recommend to others. We use ours to hold a 6 person bike carrier.




by:
2018 Chrysler Pacifica

I was very impressed with the quality and ease of installation. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to buy a tow hitch. The etrailer videos were awesome and was a big reason for my choosing them.




by:

The instructions and video online made install very manageable in a few hours. I custom cut the trim pieces around the brackets for a cleaner look. I thought the template removed too much material. That is the only con of this review. Otherwise, everything went in exactly as the instructions said. I’m very satisfied with the hitch and would 100% recommend it to others. It is very well designed, heavy duty, form fitting and sits very tight against the underbody.




by:
2018 Chrysler Pacifica

Very happy with the fit and quality of this hitch. I do have a few comments on installation that may be helpful to others. I'm a 71 year old weakling so this can be done by less than Mr. Universe even though this thing weighs a ton.

I did this on the ground using nothing but ramps to raise the van. I did however jack the van onto the ramps in two stages because I was afraid of overshooting the ramps of I tried to drive on. I jacked one side up 3.5" using the authorized jack points and put a block under the tire, then the other side 7" and slid the ramp under, then back to the first side for the final 3.5" to get that ramp under.

This hitch is far too heavy for a guy like me to raise in place by hand and fiddle with the nuts at the same time. My suggestion is that you use a floor jack to lift it into place. There is a trick to this. I put a scrap of lumber into the receiver with a C-clamp to fine tuning the balance. Otherwise the brackets just flop down and it falls off the jack (see the photo). Also note that you have to tuck the right side bracket over the muffler before you can use this jack trick. From there is was easy with my wife operating the jack as I lined the bolts up.

In one video they tell you this but in the directions they don't: There is a 10mm stud you should remove from the left side frame. You can install the hitch with it there but you can't get it center as well as it should be left to right.

One more thing I noticed is that I could have trimmed the heat shield up to 4" less than the 11" the instruction say and gotten better protection for the seat well. This will work only if you reinstall the shield after the hitch is installed as the instructions say (not as the videos show).

In general this sees very strong--plenty sturdy for the 1500lb the LX is rated to tow.

Item was delivered quickly and after a year there are no issues. The local shop I used had no issues installing it either. Price was good, I would recommend this to anyone.

This is the fourth trailer hitch I have bought from etrailer. Just like the others, it's perfect. Came quickly, fits exactly right, price is always the best and I have dealt with customer service (through my own error on a previous order) and they were super helpful. Won't buy a trailer hitch from anyone else ever again.
