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.

Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" - 65052

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (44 Customer Reviews)

Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your vehicle with this fully welded, corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.


The "no drill" aspect is really nice. The wire bolt guides are a huge helper.
The instructions are very good except for detailing where to cut the trim. This lead to me cutting more than I would have needed to. That part was not good.
I recommend having vehicle up on ramps and then using a car jack to support weight of the hitch as it is quite heavy to hold up as you begin to assemble to the frame.


Easy to install, if you follow the instructions! Has been perfect for our bike rack.

Chevrolet Suburban

I’ll always have a front hitch on any truck/suburban from now on. So convenient for coolers and for loading up a deer. Pulling camper didn’t allow me to have my cargo basket until now. No more putting coolers in the suburban.


I did a lot of research on front hitches for my suburban. I liked this one because it tucks un right under the license plate. Yes, you have to cut the air dam, but it is worth it to keep the ground clearance. No drilling as well - a major plus!

2010 Chevrolet Silverado

Very sturdy hitch, extremely easy install. If you already have your air dam removed there is no cutting or modification at all, completely bolt on. Make sure you have both front load bearing washers centered before you completely bolt down the hitch. I didn't need any alignment washers on the back brace it was very level as is, if you are using this for winching keep in mind it will affect your approach exit angles. Overall a great product!

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

We installed my new front mount trailer hitch this morning on my 2003 1500 4x4 pickup (new body style) we opened the box at 7:39 AM and complete at 8:14 AM (35 MINUTES) The instructions and materials furnished to me by you was top shelf.I had my truck up on my service rack which I am sure helped the install but I know I could have installed laying on the ground in less than 1 hour.Obviousley your R&D Department are doing there job and understand a lot of us self perform work on our vehicles.I do not want to leave out the order process and the people that pull orders and the shipping department everything went text book for me. I took pictures of the entire install I can email from my phone if I could get a email address I do not know how to add them to this review

2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Very impressed, it's a heavy duty hitch. Installation was not difficult at all on a 2012 Chevy Silverado WT 4x4, once I figured out I had to temporarily remove the front tow hooks to enable the hitch bolt and retainer enough room to slide in place. Tow hook removal and replacement was easy, use an 18mm socket.


Great hitch. Installed quickly and does exactly what I want. Sets higher than I had expected which is good, since I use it to carry my beach box. Really happy with the product.

2011 Chevrolet Avalanche

Very easy and straightforward instruction to install with everything you need with out needing to remove any car parts.


nicely made. Good instructions. Mounting holes in the hitch did not align exactly right with the truck frame holes - close but had to really work at it. Finally went in correctly and the hitch is solid. I took the entire air dam off because it looked like we'd have to cut almost in two anyway.

So far so good. No complaints.
Eddie C - 03/23/2015


Quality item, quickly shipped. I used your recommendation for a local installer, who had it on in less than half an hour. I'm already using it!


Almost easy to install, for some reason alignment was difficult with the small bolts. Still not bad. Very happy overall.


After ordering the Curt receiver which was not in stock, and learning of it’s long delivery time etrailer assisted in changing the order and getting the receiver to me very quickly

2011 Chevrolet Silverado

Hidden Hitch front hitch installed easily in about 2 hours. Hitch was in good shape from shipping but the etrailer shipping box was mostly destroyed by the freight handlers ??! Good news is---the hitch being one piece with all the parts secured to it by plastic wrap was not breakable. Installed hitch with a perfect fit. Trimming the front air dam below the bumper was easy with a hacksaw and Exacto knife.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Great product, great price, I always buy from etrailer. Name brand hitches at lowest costs.

R K - 02/14/2018


I use it on my truck to move my trailered boats.
Much easier to push a boat backwards with truck
than to back with truck. Especially in tight spots.
I use a 5 wire trailer wiring kit (3 wires cutoff) to
disable brakes on surge trailer brakes when
pushing backwards.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado

Installed on 2011 Silverado Z71 4 X 4. It took about an hour to install.
The hitch is made of thick steel and should be very strong. Installation kit included everything needed. My truck has an aluminum skit plate that I needed to trim a 1/4 " notch out of at the spot the hitch meets the cross member. I needed to trim the lower part of the air dam too. The instructions say to install extra washers between the cross member and the hitch to make it level, the front of this one is angled up slightly with no washers installed. I also had to touch up the chipped paint so it won't rust as quickly.


Works great with the snow plow. I haven’t used it with the bike rack yet. It was easy to install thanks to the wires that put the nuts in the tight spot. Overall a good quality product.


Item arrived quickly and in great shape. Install went easy with zero issues. Took me about an hour to install but I worked at my leisure and didn’t rush. Product looks sturdy and bolted right up according to instructions. I recommend removing tow hooks and valance for ease of installation. I trimmed the balance and it looks like it came from the factory. Highly recommend both the hitch and etrailer for anyone looking to do the same. Thanks Etrailer!

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

The hitch I received work perfect. The only thing is if you have tow hooks you will half to remove them. It makes it a lot easier to install hitch. Then replace tow hooks.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado

I installed this on a 2011 4WD Silverado. It went well once I removed the air dam. I want to use a front mount bike rack while towing a travel trailer.

2010 GMC Yukon

This is a very well-built product. It gives a lot of confidence. I won't ever have anything more than a bike rack attached to it, so it's a bit overkill for my use, but that's ok. I installed it on a 2010 GMC Yukon. It does push up on the center of the front bumper plastic even after cutting the air dam. Overall, I'm happy with it.

2013 GMC Sierra

Front hitch Installed easily and fit my Sierra 1500 perfectly. Fast shipping and friendly service. I'll buy from etrailer again!

2010 Chevrolet Silverado

Easy installation, correct fit looks g reat.


Easy installation and such an ease of place 23 ft travel trailer back into its spot after camping trip.
