Will the Draw-Tite # 36501 Receiver Fit with an OEM 1-1/4" Receiver on a 2005 Mazda Tribute


Will this work if you already have the factory installed, 1 1/4” hitch on your vehicle? I have seen some models that install underneath the factory hitch and dont require modification. 2005 Mazda Tribute V6 w factory hitch

I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and since the trailer hitch # 36501 with a 1-1/4" receiver mounts the same as the Draw-Tite # 75751 with the 2" receiver on your 2005 Mazda Tribute it will fit with an OEM 1-1/4" receiver but there really wouldn't be an advantage of using this receiver over the OEM receiver.

Instead of the 1-1/4" option I recommend going with the 2" receiver because it will allow you to use a wider variety of accessories. Please note that whichever way you do end up going you cannot use both receivers at the same time as that would very likely put you over your weight limits.
