Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • 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 Availability for a 2010 Chevy Suburban 2500
  • We do have a front hitch available that will fit your 2010 Chevy Suburban 2500, part # A40109. However, it is intended for snow plows so it will sit lower than most front hitches. It will most likely sit about 16 inches from the ground.

  • 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.

  • I spoke with my contacts at both of the suppliers for front-mount hitches we offer for a 2014 Ford F-150. 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...

  • 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...

  • Fit of Curt # 33055 and Draw-Tite # 65001 Front Mounted Receivers on 2000 Ford E350 Cutaway Chassis
  • I spoke with my contacts at Curt and Draw-Tite. I was told that the Curt # 33055 and the Draw-Tite # 65001 are compatible with Van cutaway chassis that have OEM front sway bars. Any other front end stabilizers available in the aftermarket can possibly interfere. Since I don't know exactly what the nature of your sway bar or stabilizer is, neither I nor my contacts with the hitch manufacturers would be able to give you a simple "It'll fit" or "It won't fit" answer. I'd advise you closely...

  • Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch receiver # 65063 will fit but the Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch receiver # 65053 will not fit your 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 since it is made for Ford Vans. I have included a picture of the hitch # 65063 that you can view as well.

  • Ball Mount with 8 to 10 Inch Rise for Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Ram 1500
  • The ball mounts that we carry that have enough rise do not have enough clearance to clear the front bumper on your 2014 Ram 1500. But I do have a possible solution for you. You could use Curt ball mount # D-28 which will provide 4 inches of rise. Then use Curt high rise ball # C40034 which will provide another 2 inches of rise for a total of 6 inches. This is a 2 inch ball. For the purposes of slow maneuvers in the driveway a 2 inch ball can be used with a 2-5/16 inch coupler. You would...

  • Is Drilling required to Install a Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Ram 3500
  • To install a Trailer Hitch # 65060 on a 2012 Ram 3500 you will need to drill four 1/2 inch holes in the frame of the truck. If there is no access hole in the frame rails to fishwire in the blocks and bolts then you will need to drill access holes. The blocks are the largest pieces that will have to go into the frame. The blocks measure 1/4 inch thick by 1-1/2 inches wide by 2 inches long. At the very least, if no hole is present, a hole that is slightly larger than 1-1/2 inches would...

  • Ground Clearance for a Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Ford Escape
  • I have some information that will help, but we do not have a photo of the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch, # 31650, on a 2007 Ford Escape because we have not had the chance to install this hitch on this vehicle at our shop. What I can tell you is that the bottom of the receiver will sit 11-1/2 inches below the frame rail at the front of your vehicle (see photo). Try to locate your frame rail under the front of your vehicle and measure 11-1/2 inches down. That will tell you where the...

The skid plate may have to be removed or possibly trimmed to install the Curt front mount hitch # 31026. The hitch has not specifically been tested on a model that has that skid plate.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Ford Ranger
  • A hitch from a 2011 Jeep Liberty would not fit a 2001 Ford Ranger. For the Ranger you would need a hitch custom fit for that vehicle. For that I would recommend the Hidden Hitch part # 70181. I attached an install video for you to check out. For trailer wiring you would want the # 118344. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.
