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.

Great addition to my Ram work truck. It fits nicely into the front bumper and looks great. It allows me to mount my winch or other accessories when I need them and remove them when I don't.




by:

Perfect fit, no modifications to truck or to the Trailer Hitch Receiver. Definitely a two person install. Installation of both top inboard bolts, the nuts and washers are in a real tight area and couldn’t get my hands in far enough to install, had to use a magnetic telescoping probe to install the nuts washer and start threading on the nut. Will say the product does look great, and well manufactured.

This makes removing winch easy. I didn't want winch to be permanent plus I'm able to hook up a bike rack when pulling our trailer.




by:

Installed front hitch to ease backing trailers into small places. I fish a small lake that only has a two track road. No place to turn around with trailer attached. Hook boat to front hitch receiver and drive the trailer. Very handy to move trailers around .

by:

The unit is very handy in moving our 50 foot towable lift. The downside is the tongue weight of the lift, coupled with the length of the hitch, has twisted the frame of the hitch downward till it is now bending the edge of the bumper.

Be aware to not overload the hitch when moving objects.




by:

Excellent design - form meets function! It looks OEM, but provides front options for bike rack or winch while still allowing use of the factory tow hooks. Installation went exactly as directed. I would recommend this hitch for anyone looking to increase versatility without giving up clearance.


Comments
The product has greatly increased my front end versatility and load hauling capabilities. I have received several complements on how smartly it fits into the front bumper. NOTE: using electrical tape to secure each nut to a box end wrench while reaching the difficult inner bumper areas was a huge helping tip during the install. Thanks again for the great experience, I would highly recommend etrailer for quality of product and service!

I gave this four stars. I would have given it five stars but wasn't happy with the nuts that were supplied. My one hour job turned into a 3 hour job. After tourqing the last bolt the threads stripped out. I couldn't tighten it and couldn't unscrew it. I ended up drilling the head of the bolt till I was able to brake it off with a large punch. Thank god the head of the bolt was accessible. I ended up installing all 7/16 grade 8 bolts with lock nuts. Felt much better after the upgraded bolts and nuts. I love the hitch. It looks like it belongs there. So all in all I'd give the hitch a 5 and the fasteners nuts a 1.


Comments
The front hitch is working great! I have a Ram 3500 and pull a 43 foot fifth wheel when we travel. The hitch is for a 250 GTS Vespa we take with us. People stop and ask about the set up all the time. We love it!

I had read reviews about this product arriving in a card box box just floppong around getting damaged. That was the furthest thing from the case for me. It was very well packed in a heavy box with internal pieces to hold it in place. It arrived in perfect condition.

I chose to replace the silver hardware with black 10.9 rated M10 60mm FINE THREAD nuts and bolts. I used the included conical washers.

The install was straight forward on my 2017 Ram 2500 Cummins. It was a bit tricky to get to the back bolts, but it was doable. It took me about 45 minutes.

Although I haven't tried hooking up to the receiver yet, I'm extremely happy with the packaging, fit, quality and appearance of this product and with the quick shipping and personalized service of etrailer.

Thanks!

Thanks. I’ve loved it and it’s still going strong!

Came as described. My 17 ram 2500 CTD has m12 bolts, this comes with m10 bolts which are smaller. I'd rather has used the m12's but due to how the holes are drilled you must use the m10's. Otherwise everything came as it should was a small paint chip that had rusted but I took care of it to keep it from spreading. Using this as a hitch mount for a winch.




by:

Draw-Tite is the only way to go. A grate clean look, puts the winch right where it needs to be. Took Steve's W advice & took the grill out & maid it easier to install. Taking tow hooks off was the easy part, Reinstalling A bit tough. What I did to make it easier was to tac weld washers to nuts & used A 3/8 x 17mm deep sock & braker bar to hold in place & screw in from front side.


Comments
As you see in my photo the hitch fit grate on my 2010 dodge 2500. Steel retain the factory tow hooks. Like the way the winch pulls off the front of the trucks fram.

Easy to install (with an assortment of sockets, extensions and wrenches). Looks great, barely protrudes beyond the bumper and the tow hooks are even more useable now! Also, the product was eligible for free shipping, 7-10 day, and etrailer upgraded it to 3-5 day for free! One small feature about etrailer that is nice, is that when they send you an email it is from a person, not an auto-mailer!


Comments
just one of the many reasons that they will always have my business! Etrailer, you guys really are top notch!

I have used the front hitch many times. Still a great product!

Outstanding, customer service. The hitch went on with no problem.




by:

Excellent fit and easy to install a very clean look as well




by:

Easy to install and only mounts one way. I figured a couple of hours to do the install, but It took an hour longer due to my Ram having a couple of mounting bolts that were difficult to access. After getting a little help with a second pair of hands, the install went pretty fast. I really use this for my winch, but have found that it’s perfect for receiver type bike racks as well as a mount for a crossbar style rack above and over the hood/cab of my truck to carry 2 kayaks while towing my fifth wheel. It also allows for me to use a ball mount to steer a trailer into tight spots rather than push it blindly backwards. A great use of product I think.




by:
2015 Ram 3500

Fit as described and exactly what I was wanting to accomplish. Even with all of the extra mounting for my BOSS V Plow the install was straight forward. As seen in the pictures, we chose to fish the inner bolts on both side from the backside to ease installation. Install time: 1 man-1 hour, 2 man-45 mins.


Comments
Awesome is all I can say!!! I have since mounted a 12k winch to the front hitch. I wired it universal to the rear so I can still use it when my plow is on. Sorry no pictures.

The GOOD: Shipped fast. Which was appreciated since I needed it fast, so when we returned from a recent trip, I could experiment with "pushing" the 28' trailer into storage instead of backing it in.
The BAD: Look at the pics and you decide. Draw Tite; are you familiar with the concept of QA ?
INSTALL: I put this unit on my '10 Ram 2500 by myself. An extra pair of hands would have been nice but... Remove your grill, takes about 3 min., see You Tube. This will give you great access and visibility.
Ripping stuff apart is EASY! However, I (58 yrs. old/mech inclined) was able/had to put this ALL back together alone. How? Of the eight bolts involved, I think just three are the most difficult (location). The trick... USE A MAGNET MOUNTED ON A TELESCOPIC HANDLE, stick it through the front of the truck, stick the bottom of the bolt to the magnet, and gently pull it up and through the bolt hole (the threaded part of the bolt should now be sticking out the FRONT of the truck). BEFORE you started this process, you would have the entire rig loosely hanging by a couple bolts pushed in from the FRONT of the truck. In the end, all nuts will be in FRONT of the truck; providing ease of access for torquing.
HARDWARE; I was concerned the hardware was gonna be crap, so before closely looking at the bolts provided, I purchased my own "graded" stuff.
Turns out the bolts are graded but longer than needed;the nuts were still suspect. So I will use nuts I bought to be sure come "torque time".
Considering the way (direction) I decided to install the bolts and that the ones provided are longer than necessary; I was left with a lot of bolt thread sticking out.
So, I cut the heads off the class 10.9 M10-1.5x50mm bolts I bought, tapped out the OEM tow hook nuts, and put together what you see in the pic to dress up the front hitch. Hope this was a help.

Ordered Draw-Tite, 2016 ram 2500 front hitch receiver. Read and watched all install info I could prior to purchase. Received from etrailer in just a few days -really fast- free shipping also!
Arrived as pictured well packaged, with smaller longer bolts then stock ones removed. Bought 7/16 hi grade bolts(beefier) with flat/lock washers. Had all bolts on and torqued, but checking them after, bolt, and nut on backside turned. Also, nut had to be held with wrench when tightening. Not good. Re examined furnished bolts washers. The washers are concaved with grooves for holding fast. Undid all I had done, installed furnished bolts/washers. Checked after torque. Tight with NO turning of bolt or nut. Impressed. I held receiver in place with a piece of 2" stock stuck in it, the outside end i put into my trailer hitch, strapped it to my motorcycle jack and wiggled new receiver into place. Held it well until bolts could be inserted. One man install is tough. Before receiver is placed bolts on tow hooks could be accessed from front. After install, no. All from below. Tape on back of wrench to hold nut in place works, I also taped box/open end wrench to a long -paint stick- to access inside of bolts. Slow, patience helps, but it worked. Holding nut while tightening front bolt was tough, but once the supplied washers took a bite, things went well. Could torque from front without holding -hard to get to nut- inside bumper. Space between top/bottom of receiver and bumper is close, however, receiver mounted and torque, is rock solid. No movement found yet, loaded with weight.
I ordered a few other parts for another job. Order was a little messed up, which was promptly handled by ADAM, a great rep, and I also talked with Jean, when Adam was unavailable. She was great also..In the past, wait time on phone was 20 min or more. Awful. However this purchase I experienced none of that. Phone wait times were minimal. I was happy. With messed up order, things were handled smooth, and quick. No hassles what so ever. In closing, Passed order included a set of air-bags with stainless air lines. One line leaked no matter how I tried to stop it. Called etrailer folks, promptly handled situation, and problem was corrected. A breath of fresh air today amongst so many nasty companies out there. Many thanks to Adam again for his help and personal attention. etrailer has proven to me, to be a great reputable company, that go the extra mile to satisfy me, a customer.
If I could download pictures of install, ya'll would appreciate the southern ingenuity that went into the challenging one man install of front hitch mount. I even impressed myself,

Love it, and it looks great. It took about an hour to install with my neighbors help. I spray painted the bolts black after install so they don't show. I could not be happier. I ordered on Tuesday, delivered on Thursday and installed Friday morning. Thanks etrailer.

The item came with all necessary hardware and instructions to mount the front hitch. There was a slight alignment issue with one mounting hold, which required the use of a pry bar in order to line up the mounting hole to the pre-existing hole on the truck. Though not expected it was an easy fix. All bolts were the proper length even with the use of all washers, which was a huge plus.
Overall, the time from unpackaging to completely mounted was around 30-40 minutes. This time includes the alignment issue, the removal and remounting of tow hooks, removal and remounting of the grill, and adding of hitch cover (hitch cover not included in images).
I am extremely satisfied with the product and have already recommended both the product and etrailer.com to friends and coworkers.
Thank you for a great product!

Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" - The front mount hitch fit perfect and was installed easily. I had a need for a front 2" receiver for an additional winch location.

Thanks for the speedy delivery of the product!

2013 Dodge Ram Pickup

The hitch is well made but knocking a star off for installation. I had my sons help. Removing the tow hooks is easy, but putting the hitch and bolts back in was not as east. I read the comments and got some grade 8 M12 1.75 bolts. For the install, six of the bolts lined up but for one on each side the hitch blocked a portion of the bolt hole. I used a drill to widen it just a bit, which worked on one side but not the other. I ended up using the provided bolt for the last hole. The provided bolts are just smaller in diameter than the stock bolts which raises the risk that the hitch can slide around if it has too heavy of a load. I spent about 3 hours total mostly trying to get the inside bolts and nuts on, and addressing the slightly misaligned hole. Otherwise, looks great and it’s perfect to hold my portable Superwinch. I have a 2013 Cummins RAM 2500.

Worked great for my "4 Boys FL70" over-cab boat loader installation.
Pros: Fits nicely, has the load capacity I needed, and sits much higher that the under bumper units.
Cons: The bolts are poor quality. One stripped while I was tightening it. Also the bolt diameter is a bit smaller than the OEM bolts. Will be upgrading mine soon.

Overall I am pleased with the unit and would recommend to others who don,t need to add

2016 Ram 3500

A perfect addition to my 3500 Dodge Ram Dually! Very excited to have found this product and the ease of installing into the frame and still have the tow hook capability. I started with attempting a solo install, however after successfully loosening 3 of 4 bolts, the 4th one (upper inside) was not gonna happen as it was very challenging with only 2 hands. Once I recruited an extra pair, the install went pretty smooth. It looks great.




by:
2019 Ram 3500

Very pleased with the Draw-tite front hitch for my 2017 RAM 3500. Easy to install and have used through out 2019 for our RV road trips. Perfect fit, bolts right up to front of our RAM. I carry our mini golf cart on front with ramp with no issues, works perfectly for travel and camping.




by:
2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great product. Installed on 2012 ram 2500 megacab 6.7. Installed this in tandem with Ranch Hand Legend grille guard. Works perfect. When installing I used a breaker bar on the inner tow hook nuts. This allows you a straight shot to the nuts. Used impact on outer bolts. I also used a chain fall mounted to ceiling in garage to hold hitch in place while bolting up. Install time Was 45 minutes . If I had help it would be a 20 minute job.
