  • Is there Any Drilling Required When Installing a Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Yes. There is some drilling involved when installing the Curt Front Mount Receiver Hitch, # C31017. You will need to drill two holes on the underside of the frame. I have included a link to the installation instructions for this hitch below. The other available front mount hitch for your vehicle is the Draw-Tite Front Hitch, # 65046. It also requires drilling into the underside of the frame. I have included the instructions and an installation video for this hitch below.

  • Is Trimming Required for Installation of the Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31017 on a Dodge Ram
  • Yes, you may have to trim the plastic fascia that is attached beneath the front bumper on your Dodge Ram pickup for installation of the Curt Front Mount Hitch, # C31017. It will depend on which model and trim package your pickup is. The trimmed area will be hidden once the hitch is installed. I attached installation instructions for you to review. You may also want to consider the Bestop HighRock 4x4 Hitch Mounted Tow Strap Loop, # B4292201, for use in the front mount hitch and a Hitch Loc

  • The CURT Front Mount Hitch, part # C31017, will fit the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega Cab 4x4. You may have to trim the front air dam or the plastic fascia that is attached beneath the front bumper on your vehicle for installation of the CURT hitch. How much trimming will depend on which model and trim package is on your vehicle. The trimmed area will be hidden once the hitch is installed. Nothing different with the installation on a 4x4 or a 4x2 vehicle. I attached installation instructions fo

  • Will Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier Carry a 275 lb Bike on a Curt Front Hitch 2007 Dodge 2500
  • You certainly would have enough capacity to carry a Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier # AMC400 and a 275 lb motorcycle with the Curt Hitch # C31017 since the weight of those two items weigh 315 lbs and the hitch has the capacity of 350 lbs. You will still need to determine what your front axle capacity is and be sure not to exceed this figure also. The biggest problem you might have would be that the headlights would be blocked, as well as your turn signals. But you also have to consider tha

  • Why Does Curt Exclude the Front Mount Hitch # C31017 For a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie
  • I spoke with my technical contact at Curt referencing the front hitch # C31017 and he gave me the following reasons why Curt states that this hitch will not fit your 2005 Dodge 3500 Laramie. The manufacturing of the 3500 Laramie is physically slightly different than the other Dodge Ram trucks with reference to how aftermarket products can mount. With this difference the Laramie does not have a standard fit for some aftermarket products. Because the Laramie has a completely different bumper,
