  • I checked on the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and found that as long as the vehicle has selectable 4 wheel drive with a neutral position in the transfer case is towable as is. If the vehicle is rear wheel drive only, and has the 42RLE transmission a transmission lube pump is required. If the vehicle has an auto transmission other than the 42RLE the vehicle is not towable and will need to be trailered. If the vehicle is AWD without a nuetral position in the transfer case it is trailer...

  • Comparison Between Draw-Tite and Curt Front Hitch for 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch you referenced, part # 65063, does indeed protrude through the bumper. Based on your email stating the use of a winch, and ground clearance concerns, my recommendation would be this hitch. I spoke with my source at Draw-Tite and found that when installed, the end of the receiver protruding through the bumper is 6-3/4 inches from the face of the mounting plate. I have included an illustration showing this information. As per the included installation instructions,...

  • The Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch # 65056 for your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will have a significant advantage in terms of ground clearance compared to Curt hitch # C31023. The Curt hitch receiver will be directly beneath the front fascia on the truck, see picture. The Draw-Tite hitch receiver will exit right about at the middle of the front license plate location, see drawing. The Draw-Tite hitch does require fascia trimming and you will need to relocate the front license plate,...

  • The measurement needed to trim the fascia of your 2015 Chevy Silverado to install the front hitch part # 65068 does need to be from the tow hook bolt center to the ground. Basically the ride height of your truck won't matter since the purpose of the measurement it so that the opening in the fascia is exactly 3-5/8 inches below the tow hook bolts.

  • Which Front Mount Receiver for 2007 Ram 3500 Will Not Require Bumper Fascia Trimming
  • Your perception is correct. The Curt # C31017 would install so that the top of the receiver tube sits about 1.63 inches (about 1-5/8) below the underside of the frame member of the truck. This means that if your truck has the rubber or plastic fascia, you'll need to notch it. This hitch is NOT compatible with Laramie models. The same dimension for the Draw-Tite # 65046 is 4-1/2 inches, which should place the top of the receiver tube against the underside of the fascia under the bumper,...

  • Recommended Front and Rear Trailer Hitch for Motorhome on 2004 Ford E450 Van Cutaway Chassis
  • For a front mounted receiver hitch, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # 65001. This hitch is a confirmed fit for a 2004 Ford Van Cutaway Chassis. For the rear hitch, if the outside to outside frame member width is between 31 to 46 inches, use the Hidden Hitch # 82200. For a frame member width of 47 to 71 inches, use part # 82201. Either hitch has plenty of capacity for carrying a bike rack and two bikes. Due to the fact that a Class C motorhome will have a long overhang at the rear (distance...

  • Can Installation Of Front-Mount Hitch On 2008 Jeep Wrangler Be Modified
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65069 is a good fit for your 2008 Jeep Wrangler. I have attached a drawing that shows how the hitch is attached to the vehicle. As you can see, the attach points are on the underside of the bumper and on the inside of the Jeep frame rail. When installing this hitch, existing holes in the frame rail and bumper are used.

  • Front Hitch Comparison for a 2016 Ford F-250 4x4
  • We have two options for front hitches for your 2016 Ford F-250 4x4, but I think the best is the Draw Tite part # 65049 as it has the best price by a large margin and has a much better price than the Curt competitor part # C31018. The only advantage the Curt has is that you can flip the cross tube around so that you can have the hitch opening up higher or down lower. The Draw Tite keeps the hitch opening low. I attached a picture of what the hitch will look like once installed on a similar...

  • Once installed the Draw-Tite front hitch # 65046 will have the receiver just about directly under the front bumper. Measure down from the front bumper 2-1/2 inches on your 2006 Dodge Ram and that will be the approximate location of the lowest part of the hitch (which is the bottom of the receiver). The Curt front mount hitch # C31017 will have the receiver slightly higher but still under the front bumper so it would be roughly the same. I have linked the isntallation instructions for...

  • Trailer Valet XL Recommendation to Maneuver Trailer with 720 lbs Tongue into Parking Spot
  • I may have a different kind of solution for you, but based on the tongue weight of your trailer none of the front hitches we offer for your 2010 Toyota Tundra would work. The Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 is a great way to move trailer's around that have less than 1,000 lbs tongue weight like yours. The crank on the side of allows you to power the jack's wheels so that you can move the trailer around and then the handle allows you to steer it.

  • I have included a picture. In the picture the top drawing is the Draw-Tite hitch # 65005. You can see how the receiver sits just below the bumper (and will stick through the optional lower fascia piece, if present). The bottom installed picture is from a customer who installed the Curt hitch # 31042. It is also below the bumper but appears to hang down lower than the Draw-Tite hitch. based on this the Draw-Tite hitch is going to provide better ground clearance.
