Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches For 2021 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon


I am looking for a trailer hitch receiver to install on my 2021 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. I see there is a Curt and Draw-Tite option that both look exactly the same, which do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

For your 2021 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon you are correct that there are two trailer hitch receivers available, the Curt # CU74FR and the Draw-Tite # DT76MR.

Both of these hitches are very similar in the sense that they install in virtually the exact same way, and both have the same 500lb tongue weight rating and 5,000lb trailer weight rating.

Between these two hitches I recommend the Curt # CU74FR due to it being made here in the USA, and in our experience the powder coat finish Curt uses holds up a bit better than what is used on other hitches so the hitch will stay looking nice for longer, and also hold up better to chips and scratches.

If you will be towing a trailer with your Gladiator you will also need a vehicle wiring harness # 118786, and a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch pin and clip # 989900.

I included the written instructions and install picture of the # CU74FR, and video reviews of the other recommended products for you to take a look at.
