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. 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.

This Draw-Tite hitch is both high quality and easy to install. The 6 3/8” extended receiver brings the 2” opening closer to the edge of the spare tire than any other hitch I’ve seen.


Comments
This is a great hitch! Been using it for the last year with absolutely no problems. We towed our 20 ft camper home from Ohio to Florida thru the mountains and to a few more places around the state. Since it’s installed on my 2016 Jeep Wrangler, it’s also been used to pull stuck vehicles out of the sand at the beach. It’s worked great thru every situation. Best investment I’ve ever made.

Great hitch! Seems to have been constructed well and has a great finish on it. Installed easily on my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport in less than an hour. Tricky part was getting the nuts started on the bolts. I used a magnet for this part. I was also able to do the install without having to drop the exhaust, which an installation video recommended doing. Item was packaged well and delivered when anticipated.

Bought this for my 2020 Jeep JLU so I could utilize a bike rack. Received the hitch very quickly and Installation was a breeze. Works as expected.

Easy to follow instructions and hitch is as described. I’ve had it on my Jeep a year with no problems. Installed myself in about 2 hours. If that seems like a long time, I’m 120lb chick working on gravel by myself.

2010 Jeep Wrangler

Very easy to install! I believe etrailer rating the difficulty as a 3 out of 10. I would say more like a 1 or a 2. I have a 2020 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. The video on the etrailer site for this hitch used a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which had an extra piece that my jeep does not have. Additionally, the instructions that came with the hitch noted that I would have to lower the jeep muffler to install the hitch. This was not necessary.

I think this hitch will serve my purposes well going forward.




by:

Great hitch! Use it for fishing rod holder and ice chest as I surf fish the beach!




by:

Easy to install and solid product. Video matched product and made install easy. Receiver extends far enough for accessories (glide away bike rack and cargo carrier). My selection was based on a etrailer video which was useful and informative.

Install notes: Video and included instructions conflict slightly on disposition of spacer plate and bolt selection (original jeep bolts vs those provided with the hitch). and torque specs for bolts. I went with the video for everything I could which was most helpful except for lack or torque spec guidance. Also the specific draw-tite part number in the video comparing hitch options for 2021 jeep has been discontinued and should be replaced with this part number.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The Draw-Tite Hitch, when I opened the box, arrived bent on one side. I debated to return it however I was with some mechanic friends who said let's just bend it back and put it on. Once we were able to get it on, eliminating the big welds on the rear beam for the bumper, it installed perfectly. I'm sure I wil now be happy with the product.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a FAQ that can assist with moving the side brackets of the hitch back into alignment.

Very sturdy hitch. Exactly what I needed. Even a place to mount wiring bracket.




by:

Heavy duty, well constructed. Somewhat of a challenge to install but worth the effort. Would recommend.

2018 Jeep Wrangler

Air lift installed on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JKU with a 4” lift. Alison B put wanted to make sure I got the right bags and put me in touch with Air Lift who helped me get the correct bags. It was easier and quicker to remove rear springs and install the bags, just remember to apply lubricant to help with installation. Alison B was great to work with and extremely helpful in making sure I got the right parts. I have done business with etrailer in the past and will continue to use them in the future.

Once I ground down the high weld ridge it slipped on easily. Used the two existing bolts that went into a bracket with welded nuts and two bolts that came with the hitch. Torqued everything to 65 and it’s good to go.
Took 3 hours because of the grinding.
Very nice hitch. Installed on a new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Plug in hybrid.




by:

Excellent quality product and easy to install. Christian was helpful as always!




by:

Great price fast shipping easy straight forward install




by:

Product is heavy duty and well constructed. Instructions were clear though a mix-up with the documented size of the bolts which turned out not to be 18m, but instead 19mm. All in all a worthy investment and upgrade for my Jeep.

Solid hitch and easy to install.

Fit perfectly, it took less than 15 minutes to install. Watch the video!

Was delivered as promised and in good s hape

I mounted this hitch on my 2021 Wrangler JL. Expanded bolt holes on the back flange of the hitch made installing it easier without having to lower my muffler.

Heavy duty version, just what I was looking for.

  • Is 2021 Jeep Wrangler Hitch DT78MR Same as 76382
    Yes our Draw Tite part number # DT78MR is the same as Draw Tite's 76382. We sometimes change part numbers but this is for sure the same hitch.

  • Receiver Tube Length of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for Jeep JL
    I don't know exactly how far the Draw-Tite hitch # DT78MR is going to stick out from your bumper but I can tell you that it's exactly 6-3/8 inches from the front of the mounting plate to the opening. The mounting plate itself is right at 3/4 of an inch thick so if you measure roughly 7 inches from the frame of your Jeep out past the bumper you can see where the opening of the receiver tube will be.

  • Does Aftermaket Hitch for 2018 Jeep Wrangler Have Advantage over OEM Hitch
    Going with a different hitch on your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL like with the Draw Tite part # DT78MR has a few advantages like higher towing capacities but also this hitch has a much longer hitch tube so it's easier to fit fit a bike rack and have spare wheel/tire clearance.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Jeep Wrangler
    For your 2019 Jeep Wrangler I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # DT78MR because it features the highest weight capacity available for your Jeep. This particular Class III hitch has a 4,500 pound towing capacity and a 675 pound tongue weight limit (which is almost double that of the other options available for your Jeep). This simply points to a stronger unit that will do a great job of holding up over time. The receiver will stick out just a bit more too which makes it easier...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Mopar Off-Road Bumper
    There is a trailer hitch that will fit with a bumper other than the standard rear bumper on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but it needs to be a specific bumper, the Mopar Off Road Bumper 82213654. If this is what you have the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # DT78MR is a great option. This is a Class III, 2 inch hitch with a 675 lb tongue weight capacity and 4,500 lb towing capacity. It has a black powder coat to resist any type of corrosion and will not require any type of drilling...

  • What is the Tongue Weight of a 2017 Jeep Wrangler JKU Sport with 3.21 Gear Ratio
    In this case, you'll just want to use 10% of the maximum towing capacity of your 2017 Jeep JKU to determine the maximum tongue weight. From what I was able to find in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler owner's manual, your Sport model has different max weight capacities depending on the Jeep's axle ratio (as you're already aware). For a 3.21 gear ratio the maximum tongue weight is 200 lbs and maximum gross trailer weight is 2,000 lbs, so you're not going to be able to carry a motorcycle and carrier...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2020 Jeep Wrangler With Mopar 82213654 Bumper
    I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT78MR which is a compatible hitch with the off road Mopar bumper on your Wrangler. The Draw-Tite hitch is an easy bolt-on installation and is compatible weight distribution as well if your trailer has a weight distribution system. The photo I have attached is not one of your specific bumper but it is compatible.

  • Will Draw-Tite 76104 Fit A 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With A Factory Tow Hook
    The Draw-Tite Class III 2 Inch Hitch # DT78MR will fit a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited without the factory tow hook. It will use the four factory holes on the rear crossmember. So the factory tow hook does have to be permanently removed for the hitch to be installed on your vehicle. All of the hitches I have that fit your vehicle will install the same way, so to put a hitch on your 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you will have to remove the factory tow hook.

  • Recommendation for Carrying a Recumbent Bike on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
    The best solution would be to use a trailer hitch and hitch mount recumbent bike rack. For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite, # DT78MR. The receiver on this hitch is a little longer which will help to clear the spare tire mounted on the back. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. If your recumbent bike has 3 wheels, you can use # Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for 2 Fat Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR1450Z-FB with a Trike Adapter #...

  • What is Weight Distribution in Relation to a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Draw-Tite Hitch
    The maximum tongue weight with weight distribution for the Draw Tite Trailer Hitch # DT78MR is 675 lbs. Weight distribution is designed to distribute the weight more evenly to all axles of the tow vehicle and trailer. Since the weight is carried more level you will often see a second weight capacity for hitches and vehicles if they use a weight distribution system. Typically weight distribution systems are recommended when the trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the weight of the vehicle....

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Provide Clearance for Thule Apex Bike Rack
    The Draw-Tite # DT78MR is going to be your best option as it has the longest receiver of all the hitches that fit your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The center of the Draw-Tite's hitch pin hole is going to be roughly an inch past your Jeep's bumper. The Thule Apex TH9025 is just over 9" from the center of its hitch pin hole to its upright bar, so you will have approximately 10 inches from your bumper to the back of the Thule Apex with this set up. I recommend measuring to ensure that amount...

  • Can Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 76104 for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Handle Black Widow Motorcycle Carrier
    Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT78MR is rated for 675 pounds tongue weight so it by itself is more than capable of handling the Black Widow motorcycle carrier which weighs around 60 pounds or so. However, the tongue weight capacity of the 2014 Jeep Wrangler will be either 200 pounds or 350 pounds depending on which version of the Wrangler you have.

  • Why Would Draw Tite Hitch 76104 Have Higher Tongue Weight Capacity than Jeep Hitch
    Draw Tite made the part # DT78MR to their high quality standards and found that when they tested it that it has a tongue weight capacity of 675 lbs. We really can't comment on how Jeep would have made there hitch but we do know that Draw Tite would not rate the hitch that high if it wasn't that strong. Another thing to consider, and this may be why there is a capacity difference, is that Jeep may have rated their hitch for the same capacity as what the vehicle has to eliminate confusion....

There are exceptions and a vehicle manufacturer can call it whatever class they want really.
