Here are a few pictures of the hitch on my 2012 Avalanche. The ones from underneath didn't come out as nice as I had wanted. 36753

So far so good! Looks and feels like a high quality product, the welding looks great, everything was fabricated square and accurately. The first thing I did was remove the lower black fascia from my truck so it is easier to properly locate the hitch. Once properly located on frame of truck and mounting are holes are marked all you have to do is simply drill four 17/32" holes and fish bolts thru frame. The fish wire that is provided to pull the bolts through the frame was ingenious, someone was really thinking when they designed this. This was truly a breeze to install. 46385

e-trailer service and shipping were fantastic! As far as the Curt front receiver for 2007 Tahoe, the product is very well made and the install took about 1 hour. The ground clearance is not good. Ground clearance on my 2007 Tahoe is 7 inches and the angle of approach is half what it used to be. Angle of approach with my receiver winch is unacceptable. I also purchased the Roadmaster 10,000 pound 6 inch high/low hitch adapter and that helps to get the winch up, but the receiver is still plowing through mud. If you have a 2007+ Tahoe, get the Curt front mount skid shield to avoid catching the receiver hitch on rocks or driveways. I'd rather have a receiver through the license plate area or higher for better ground clearance and no loss on angle of approach - so I'm looking to custom build one since I can't find a manufacturer that makes one. 105679

I ordered my Front Receiver for my Suburban back in January and received it about 3-4 days later. I was extremley pleased with the order process. I finally got around to puting it on in March???? Installation was a breeze, you do have to drill 4 holes but it was no big deal. Then I thought the hard part was going to be fishing the bolt/washers into the drilled holes but it was a piece of cake and actually was kinda fun. The "fishing" lines provided in the kit were great and they are now in my tool box in case I ever need to go "fishing" again. The Hitch works great and makes moving my trailers around a snap. I chose not to trim the front spoiler because it looks fine to me. I also now have a really neat step to get under the hood and I am going to add a winch stand and other toys to it. Thanks the product is great!!!!!!!!! 9984

Good Product/Install, Loss of Ground Clearance Install directions were detailed and straight foward. Having the right drills, bits, and sockets make the project easy. I spent 1.5 hours verse the recommended 45 minutes as a non-professional installer. Very pleased with the product, but instead of having to trim any fascia, the lowest part of the receiver sits below the fascia, making this the lowest point of the vehicle. I was hoping the receiver would maintain the vehicles stock ground clearance, but it is just too low. I installed this to carry a portable mounted winch and it may be too low to do this job effectively. 4283

Super fast shipping,but could use better packing.Hitch actually made a large hole in box,UPS driver had me check to see if anything was missing.Easy install,but try finding a 17/32" bit. After seeing how big the front opening is I just used a 1/2" bit. I think it took longer to remove, trim and reinstall the front spoiler than the rest of the job. Looks great installed 154795

Hitch was ordered, delivered in a timely manner. Suggest you offer 17/32 drill bits as I have visited Lowes, Home Depot, and 5 independent Hardware stores, no one has this size drill bit. I do not wish to use a readily available 9/16 drill bit, but may have too!!! 118018

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver Location on a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe LT3 Z71
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he told me that there is only one mounting option for the Curt Front Hitch, # C31012. This hitch was designed to mount to the underside of the frame rails, hanging below the frame as it is pictured (see photo). He also told me that this hitch was not designed or tested to mount in any other orientation and doing so could not only cause damage to the hitch and your vehicle, but would void the warranty of the hitch. If you would like to determine where...

  • Recommended Snow Plow for 2014 GMC Serria All Terrain
  • You can certainly use a snowplow on your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500. I recommend the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Snowplow, # A40040HD. I recently saw a demonstration of this plow and was impressed by its ease of installation, durability and its ability to take on hard snow banks, hidden stumps and curbs. I also recommend getting the Agri-Cover SnowSport Hold Down Strap, # A60220, to keep the blade down when meeting those hardened snow banks. I have included links below to the installation details...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 GMC Yukon SLT
  • The recommended front mount hitch for your 2011 GMC Yukon is the Curt Front Hitch # C31012. I attached installation instructions for this hitch for you to check out also. The # 31042 front hitch you referenced is designed to fit an older model Yukon and would not work for you.

I have included a link to all the base plate kits for the Yukon XL in case you have different model. I spoke with my contact at Curt about the Front Hitch, # C31012. He stated that it will fit your 2007 GMC Yukon as long as it is a 1500, and not a hybrid model. There are no front hitches available for the 2500 or hybrid models.

  • What Size Holes Need to be Drilled to Install Curt Front Mount Hitch on a 2014 Chevy Silverado
  • I am not sure why the instructions are not opening for you so I can email them to you in a separate email. But in the instructions step 4 says to drill four 17/32 inch holes. There is some fascia trimming required to install the hitch also shown in the instructions so you will need to compare them to your truck to see if the crash avoidance system or parking assist system will get in the way. Based on pictures I have seen of the hitch installed on customers trucks I do not believe it...
