Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • How Does the Curt Hitch # 31042 Install on a 1995 Chevy Tahoe
  • Regarding your first question, the carriage bolts will point up and thread from through the tow hooks (if present), and up into the factory weld nuts if they are present as well. If your vehicle doesn't have the weld nuts then the carriage bolts will instead fish wire through the frame and point down instead. The square spacers will end up in the trailer frame with the bolts. Basically the bolts will go through the square spacer, through the frame, through the hitch mounting flange,...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton Truck
  • Between the two hitches the one that is confirmed to fit your 2003 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton truck would be the # 31108. The # 31302 that you also referenced is designed to fit only the 1500 LD models so it wouldn't be the correct hitch for you. That is the difference between the two part numbers.

  • Front Receiver Hitch for Snowplow on 1999 Ford Explorer
  • Curt offers the # C31051 front mounted hitch that's a fit for all models of the 1999 Ford Explorer, as long as it isn't a Sport Trac. The hitch has a 350 lb vertical pull capacity, which means the maximum amount of weight that can be hung from the receiver is 350 lbs. If the plow you're wanting to use weighs less than that, the hitch will work great for you. I don't know if you have your plow yet-if you don't, we offer a few that you might want to take a look at. The Snowsport # A40000HD...

  • Alternate Installation Method for Installing Curt Hitch # C31071 on 2015 Silverado 3500
  • Thanks for letting us know how the install of the Curt Hitch part # C31071 went on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500. Sometimes hitches can get slightly bent in shipping which can cause the clearances to be tighter than intended. I am not 100% that is what happened in your situation but it is possible. Either way I am glad you got it figured out and installed. As long as you get all of the bolts installed and torqued to the specs in the installation instructions the way you get everything...

  • Comparing Installation of Curt C31068 vs Draw-Tite 65061 on 2010 Ford F-150

Installing the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C31068, on the 2010 Ford F-150 Supercrew 4x4 with a straight down air dam will require some minor trimming to the fascia. As for the skid shield he said more than likely this hitch will not require that you modify the skid shield.

The installation is pretty straightforward, with the only twist being the need to use the included bolt leaders to pull some of the installation hardware into the frame.

  • How To Determine if 2000 Ford Ranger has Crossmember that Interferes w/ Front Hitch Installation
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he provided a picture to show what to look for when it comes to determining whether your 2000 Ford Ranger has the front crossmember. You will see his picture off to the right. If your Ranger DOES NOT have a crossmember then the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C31063, will work for you.

  • Is Skid Plate Removal Required to Install the Curt Front Hitch part # 31313
  • You should be able to reinstall your skid plate after installing the Curt Front Hitch # 31313. On the older models (prior to 2007) the skid plate isn't required to be removed. The newer ones after 2007 do require the removal of it, but we had a customer with a 2012 model write us a review where he said he was able to reinstall his skid plate. Without knowing what year your vehicle is it's hard for me to give you a more specific answer than that.

  • Recommended Front Mounted Trailer Hitch for a 2002 Chevy Express Van
  • The front mounted hitch I recommend is the Curt # C31016. It is a corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver and you can add many hitch mounted accessories. It has a very precise robotic welding which maximizes it's strength and durability. Trimming of front air dam or fascia may be required for hitch installation. The Draw-Tite # 65016 you also referenced is another solid front mounted trailer hitch. It's a fully welded steel construction that ensures stength and durability. Plastic...

  • Availability of Front Mounted Receiver for 2015 GMC 2500
  • According to Draw-Tite, the front clip of the 2015 Sierra 2500 is different enough from the 2014 model that the # 65056 front mounted receiver doesn't carry over. According to Draw-Tite, their engineering department is working of an updated model compatible with the 2015 truck, but at this time they can't provide a timeline on when the receiver might be available. However, Curt has the recently released # C31071 that IS a fit for your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD. Curt hitches are of similar...

  • Front Hitch and Best Plow Options for 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser

I've linked you to a video showing the hitch being installed on a 2008 FJ Cruiser. The Home Plow you mentioned looked pretty expensive. If you're needing something for your driveway, those of a few lucky neighbors and maybe a small parking lot or two, take a look at the Snowsport # A40000HD. Due to the much simpler install, and the simpler operation...
