  • Fit of Curt Front Mounted Receiver # 33328 On 2003 Honda Pilot
  • I have confirmed with Curt Manufacturing that their # 33328 front mounted receiver hitch is a fit for 2005-2008 Honda Pilot models only. My contact in the engineering department at Curt tells me that the frame structure at the front of the vehicle on earlier first-generation Pilots was different, which is why the hitch won't fit.

  • Front Mount Receiver Mounting Hole Spacing for Curt Hitch 31367
  • It sounds like you might want to use Curt front mount hitch # 31367 on a vehicle it was not designed for. Please note that doing so will void the hitch warranty and can also require major modifications done to the vehicle to get it to fit. This hitch is designed for the 2007 to 2009 Toyota 4Runner, 2007 to 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser, and 2010 to 2013 Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition only. It will not fit any other vehicles.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitches for a 2015 Ford F-250
  • Curt front mount trailer hitch # C31018 only fits 4 wheel drive models of the 2015 Ford F-250.

  • Does Skid Shield Stay in Place on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser when Installing Curt Front Mount Hitch
  • The Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31367 should fit forward of the skid shield on your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It should be just like the video I have linked to the right on a 2008 FJ. You can see the skid shield stays in place parts of this video. Curt does list this hitch as a fit for all models of the 2014 FJ Cruiser so that would include models with the off road package.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2012 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost Modified with FX Offroad Package
  • Since your 2012 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost has been modified or upgraded the only way to determine fit of a front mount hitch, other than trying to install it, is to compare the instructions I have linked to the right for hitch # C31068 and # 65061 with the area on your truck. But it shouldn't be a problem because both of these hitches fit all models of the 2012 Ford F-150. They just have not been tested on a model that has been modified to be like another model.

  • Installing Curt Front Mounted Receiver # C31048 on 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ Existing Grille Guard
  • Sight unseen, It would be pretty difficult to say if you'd be able to install the hitch with an existing grille guard. The Curt # C31048 front mounted receiver attaches to the underside of the frame members at the front of the vehicle, the mounting flanges of the hitch are actually sandwiched between the frame and the bushing retainer for the front sway bar. Your best bet would be to carefully examine the instructions I've linked you to, then look at the frame members at the front of your...

  • Recommendation for Front Hitch Receiver to Mount Utility Snowplow # A400000HD on 1998 Jeep Wrangler
  • In order to mount the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow, # A40000HD, on your 1998 Jeep Wrangler, you would need to install the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C31028. This hitch attaches to the frame of the Jeep which will put the receiver tube below the bumper, much lower than an above the bumper style hitch. You are correct that the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow, # A40000HD, requires that the receiver tube be 8 to 16 inches from the ground in order to...

  • Can a High-Low Adapter and Hitch Extender with Winch Mount be Used with Winch on 2012 Ford F-250
  • I do not recommend using a high-low adapter to achieve the rise you are looking for. The problem is that you would have to use the adapter, possibly an extension, and then a winch mount. That creates a lot of links in the chain so to speak and a lot of extra stress on the front mount hitch # 65049 on your 2012 Ford F-250. The use of extensions and adapters reduces the tongue weight, or in this case the vertical pull, by 50 percent. With that many accessories connected the vertical pull...

  • Front Hitch Recommendations for a 2014 Ram 1500 with Tow Hooks
  • To install the Curt Front Hitch part # 31374 you will need to drill two 17/32 holes on the frame of your 2014 Ram 1500. I checked with Draw Tite and if you were to install the part # 65062 you would still be able to retain your tow hooks. The hitch would install between the tow hooks and the frame. Check out the install video I attached.

  • I spoke to my contact at Curt and he informed me that the distance from the mounting surface of the Curt Front Hitch part # C31069 to the top of the receiver tube is right at 6-3/4 inches. You will need to measure from the mounting point on your vehicle down 6-3/4 inches to determine where the hitch opening will be. For more install info check out the install instructions I attached.

Although the Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 65061, states that the front skid plate needs to be modified, I was unable to find out how much modification was required to install the hitch.You may find that it is possible to install the hitch with little modification but you may find that it will require more than you care to do. I also spoke with my contact at Curt and the front hitch...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for the Front Hitch of a 2013 Ford F250
  • I think the best rack for your application would be the Swagman XP 3 Bike Rack part # S64910-2. This rack does not have any folding or tilting features so it will be a very solid rack with out any movement. It also comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin to prevent the rack from moving inside the hitch at all. This rack can fit 3 bikes, but would also fit 2 bikes very easily. Installing the rack on your hitch and installing bikes on the rack would be pretty simple as well. Check out the...

  • Front Hitch Availability for a 2013 Ford F150 4WD Ecoboost
  • There is a front mounted hitch that is confirmed to fit your 2013 Ford F150 4WD with Ecoboost, part # 65061. However, this hitch does not have the capacity for your trailer as it only has a tongue weight rating of 500 lbs so I cannot recommend it for your application. The best recommendation I can give you would be to use the rear hitch of your truck to maneuver your trailer as long as it has the capacity. It might be difficult to maneuver the trailer while in reverse, but with a little...

  • Best Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2000 Mazda B4000 Pickup Truck
  • I checked with Draw-Tite and front mount hitch # 65024 is not a fit for your 2000 Mazda B4000 pickup truck. But like you said, there is an option from Curt, # C31063. Please note that the skid shield must be removed for installation. This front mount receiver will not fit on models with a front cross-member. And it does not fit 2WD vehicles built in Canada. This is currently the only front mount option that will fit the 2000 Mazda B-series trucks.

  • Front Hitch Availability for Forest River Georgetown 306s RV Built on 2002 Ford F-53 Chassis
  • For your 2003 Forest River Georgetown RV that is built on the 2002 Ford F-53 chassis we do not offer any front-mount hitch receivers. I did review photos of the RV to see if it has an exposed rear bumper that would allow use of a spare carrier such as the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier # UF15-954730, but its bumper appears to have a full cover. If your towed vehicle has a 2 X 2 rear trailer hitch you might consider the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006 which...
