Does Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Jeep Gladiator Have Enough Towing Capacity


For the Draw-Tite trailer hitch for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. I see it has a pretty big tongue weight of 1,200 lb capacity, but towing capacity is 7,500 lbs. Is this enough for the Gladiator? Does the hitch have as much capacity as my Jeep?


Expert Reply:

The simple answer to your question is yes, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR64FR that fits your 2020 Jeep Gladiator has enough capacity for the Jeep. This trailer hitch has a 7,500 lb towing capacity and 1,125 lb tongue weight capacity which is absolutely enough for the Gladiator.

The reason is, according to the owner's manual of the 2020 Gladiator, it has a 4,000 lb towing and 400 lb tongue weight capacity unless you have the Max Tow package. If so, those numbers are 7,650 lbs towing and 765 lbs tongue weight. However, the Max Tow package on a Gladiator includes a trailer hitch, so if yours does not have a hitch and you are looking to install the Draw-Tite # DR64FR, your capacity is 4,000 lbs towing/400 lbs tongue weight, which the Draw-Tite is plenty capable of.
