Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram

Video Transcript for Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram

Today on our 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 we're going to install the Curt front mounted hitch part #: 31320. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the license plate is 3 and a half inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 12 and inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories, now lets go ahead with the installation. Before we can begin the installation well need to go ahead and take a notch out of the front air dam to allow for the hitch clearance.

To do this were going to get an extra set of hands to help us hold the hitch in place while we mark out the air dam. Now we need to take approximately of an inch out and high. So Im going to go ahead and make that mark. With our air dam marked out Im going to go ahead and use a rotary zip tool to cut out the air dam. Alright, now that we have the air dam cut out well go ahead and get our extra set of hands to help us hold the hitch in place to test fit the cutout.

Now using a can of white spray paint we use it to mark out the holes that need to be drilled for our attachment point. Now, with each of our holes marked out well go ahead and take our center punch and mark the center of each hole and then start drilling it out using a pilot bit. Each process we do here on the passenger side will be repeated identically on the driver side. Well be using the step drill bit process. Now that weve got our pilot hole drilled out well go to a bit larger and keep widening our hole until we to the 7/16 hole that we need to install our carriage bolt.

Now with all our holes drilled out we can go ahead and take the pull wire provided with our install kit and feed our fasteners into the frame. Were using a 7/16 block and 7/16 carriage bolt. Before we can feed those into the frame we need to get our pull wire in place first. Were going to feed it through our attachment point back to the access hole in the frame. First, well slide on our block, then well thread on the carriage bolt.

Go ahead and feed both of them in the frame, once into the frame we can pull them into position. That was our first attachment point for the rear fastener on the passenger side. Now were going to go ahead and repeat the same process for the other five attachment points. Alright, now with all our attachment points drilled out and our fasteners in place we can go ahead and put our hitch in position and secure it with the 7/16 flange nut. Be careful when you put your hitch into position not to push your hardware back up into the frame. Now with all our fasteners in place we can go ahead and tighten it down. Now with all our attachment points tightened down well go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with all our fasteners torqued to specifications that will complete the installation of our Curt front mounted hitch part #: 31320 on our 2006 Dodge Ram 1500.

The service I received from etrailer was outstanding; the customer service rep that helped me with my order was super friendly and very helpful with all my questions and concerns and processed my order on the spot. I had my shipping confirmation right after I placed my order and received my hitch in 2 days from start of my order... The only issue I had was from the maker of the hitch I purchased, the wire they give you to fish the bolts was too short from my access point on the frame of the truck but with a little extension added on the wire given to me allowed me to installed the hitch with no problems... etrailer in my book is A+++ and I will buy all my truck and hitch needs from this awesome internet store.. Thank You again etrailer for a super smooth transaction with my purchase. 107059

I had ordered a similar hitch from Amazon weeks before receiving it damaged three different times. Three is a charm and I started searching elsewhere when I found you guy's, etrailer.com. The product arrived undamaged. Though I've not installed it yet I believe it will be a whole lot easier due to the wonderful installation video you sent me. I will tell you the video was a selling point for me. Thank you for the great service, product and the video. Jimmy Lane 71345

Item is perfect...I installed it by myself in about 45 minutes on my 2004 Dodge Ram...No need to drill holes as they are already there, and didn't need to trim the air dam below :O)...the fish wire was great!!! easier to fish the bolt etc from the mounting holes straight up through the frame than trying to go all the way to the access hole though... 55624

Very high quality. Very easy to install. Does not take away any ground clearance. On the 2004 Ram, no drilling and no cutting fascia. I will use mine mainly for carrying bicycles while towing our travel trailer. 54143

  • Using Roadmaster Falcon 2 Towbar with 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with Front Winch Installed
  • The Curt Front Mount 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 31320, cannot be used to flat-tow your Ram Pickup. You can flat-tow your vehicle (provided it is not the SRT-10) with base plates, such as the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit for 2005 Ram Pickup, part # 260-1. This base plate is compatible with all Roadmaster towbars. Your Ram 1500 should be able to have both the front-mount hitch, # 31320, and the tow bar base plates, # 260-1, installed simultaneously since they mount to different...

  • Is the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Compatible with Westin E-Series Bull Bar on a 2008 Dodge Ram
  • It is sometimes possible to have both a Bull Bar and a front mount trailer hitch installed at the same time on a vehicle. The problem is that in the majority of vehicles, both parts require at least some of the same mounting locations so they would interfere with one another. What you will need to do is take a look at the isntructions for the front mount hitch that I have linked to see where it mounts and compare that to the mounting locations used by the Bull Bar to determine compatibility....

  • Will Westin Grille Guard for 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad 4WD # 45-1950 Work With Tow Hooks Front Hitch
  • My contact at Westin confirms that installation of their Sportsman Grille Guard for the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD Quad Cab, part # 45-1950, requires removal of the factory tow hooks. Both items cannot be installed at the same time. I see that you purchased a Curt front-mount hitch for your Dodge Ram 1500 from etrailer back in September of 2011; that part number is # 31320. I reviewed the installation instructions for this hitch and the illustrations show the hitch mounts to the underside...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Options for a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500
  • There are a couple of options for a front mount receiver for the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 depending on the cab size. If the truck does not have a Mega Cab, use CURT Front Mount Receiver, # 31320. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Please note, if you have a Sport model, non-Mega Cab, you will also need a spacer kit, # 31320-SK.

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500
  • There are front hitches available for your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500, but the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65063 that you referenced is designed for newer Rams and would not work for you. You would want either the Curt Front Hitch # C31017 if your 1500 Ram has a Mega Cab or a Curt Front Hitch # 31320 if you do not have a Mega Cab.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 that Does Not Require Fascia Trimming
  • Curt front mount hitch # 31320 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. There is no trimming indicated in the instructions, linked to the right, for a 2004 model, just 2006 and later models. I have included a link to a video showing installation on a 2006 model so you can ignore any trimming parts. Everything else should be exactly the same on your 2004.

  • Installing Curt Front Mounted Receiver # 31320 on 2006 Dodge 2500 4x4
  • I spoke with my contact in the engineering department at Curt Manufacturing, who tells me that most, but not all 2006 Ram 2500 models had the access hole in the frame as shown in the instructions. If the front of the frame member allows enough room to pull the bolt and spacer through, you can go that route. Otherwise, you can use a 1-1/4 inch hole saw to make an access hole in the frame as shown in the instructions. I have linked you to the installation instructions as well as to an...
