You would not be able to have both installed at the same time because of this interference. I have attached the installation instructions for both the 31042 and the 131-8 you can check out.

This receiver has a 2 inch receiver opening and is an easy bolt-on installation. All hardware and instructions are included. Since you mentioned you want to use the receiver for plowing the driveway I recommend the Agri-Cover SnowSport LT Snowplow, part # A80849KIT.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2003 Chevy Avalanche
  • First, regarding the installation instructions, the front receiver # 31302 does fit other Chevy models other than the Silverado. I don't know why they didn't put that in the instructions but it might be to save space since this receiver fits Sierra, Silverado, Yukon, Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, and Escalade models. That is also why you see a video installation on a 2003 Tahoe which I have linked for reference. Regarding the use of an extension I do not recommend it. The use of an extension...

  • In most situations front hitches and bull bars aren't compatible together on a vehicle like your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser because they use the same installation points and occupy the same area for the most part. Since the front hitch # 31367 hasn't been tested with a bull bar I can't say for certain if it would fit or not. The best recommendation I can make would be to check out the install video and instructions I attached so that you can decide if they two could be both installed at...

The # 65005 has a capacity of 500 lbs of tongue weight. For a motorcycle carrier you could go with the Rage Carrier part # MX600. You will need to consider the fact that the motorcycle will block air flow to the radiator, block the headlights potentially...

  • Front Hitch and Plow Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler that is Lifted
  • To use a Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow part # A40000HD on a vehicle the bottom of the front hitch has to be between 8 and 16 inches from the ground. If when the # 31432 would be installed on your 2013 Jeep Wrangler the bottom of the hitch would be 19 inches from the ground I couldn't recommend the # A40000HD. Instead I would have to recommend the K2 Plow part # K2RASP8219 as it doesn't have the hitch height range requirement that the Agri-Cover does.

  • How to Lower Front Receiver of 2013 Jeep Wrangler for Use with SnowSport # A40000HD Snow Plow
  • Blue Ox offers a High-Low Adapter, part # BX88235 that might work for you if getting a 3 inch drop in the receiver would put you below the 16 inch maximum receiver height. This isn't an inexpensive solution, but the adapter has a huge weight capacity that will be needed to withstand the battering it will receive when used with a plow. Keep in mind that the adapter cannot be used for towing a trailer. I've linked you to the product demonstration video showing the plow in use.

  • Curt Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Nissan Frontier
  • The only way the Curt Front Hitch part # 31241 that you referenced can be installed on a vehicle like your 2011 Nissan Frontier would be with it attaching to the bottom of your vehicle frame. The mounting flange wouldn't be wide enough to make it around the frame, and there are no weldnuts on top of the frame either.

I called my contact at Curt and they told me they were not aware of a blocker beam being installed on an Excursion.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Dodge Dakota 4x4
  • For your 2002 Dodge Dakota 4x4 I recommend installing the Curt Front Mount Hitch, # 31080. This has the highest vertical pull rating of our front mount hitches and it does not require any bumper modifications. The receiver will sit just below the front bumper fascia. I have attached the installation instructions for you to check out. Once you have the front hitch installed, a plow like the Detail K2 Rampage Snowplow, # K2RASP8219, will fit in the 2 inch receiver.

  • How To Measure For Ground Clearance On 2006 Ford F-150 For Front Hitch
  • The Curt front hitch, part # 31352 may require trimming the plastic fascia that is attached to the bottom of a chrome bumper.

The Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 65043 does not require trimming the front fascia when in stalling. It does sit just a bit lower to the ground than the Curt hitch, but it does feature...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 1992 Chevy C1500 Truck
  • For your 1992 C1500 pickup truck you would want either the Curt Hitch part # 31042 that you referenced or the Draw Tite Front Hitch part # 65005 that will hang higher than the Curt. The # 31043 is for 2500 and 3500 series C Series trucks so it would not work for you. The # 65005 will require fascia trimming and drilling for installation. Since the Curt hitch hangs lower it would not require that the fascia be trimmed.
