Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • Are there Front and Rear Mounted Trailer Hitches for a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4
  • Rear mounted hitches are not available for the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder because it is supposed to have come with one from the factory. The best place to look for a replacement rear mount hitch for your vehicle would be through a dealership. But for a front mount I can help you with that, no problem. We have the Curt front mount hitch # 31241 that you have referenced that will fit your Pathfinder. This hitch is rated for 350 pounds vertical load. So anything you load on in the front hitch, su

  • Does Curt Front Mount Hitch and 2014 Toyota Tundra Skid Shield have to be Removed to Change Oil
  • A customer who bought Curt front mount hitch, # 31198, for his 2014 Toyota Tundra did say the following: "The 2014 Toyota Tundra has a skid plate that has to be removed for oil changes and this front hitch installed would also have to be removed each time the oil is changed. I decided to cut a square hole in the skid plate allowing access to the oil filter so that the skid plate along with the front hitch would not have to be removed to get to the oil filter."

  • Hitch for Bus on 2006 Ford E450 Cutaway Van Chassis
  • We have some multi-fit and weld-on hitches that might work for your application. I'll need to know the drop you need. Measure the distance from the underside of the frame to the lowest point of the rear bumper at the center. The Hidden Hitch 82200 will fit frame members measuring 31-46 inches apart, outside to outside. The hitch has a drop of two inches. Curt offers 3 inches of drop with their # 13703 hitch, which fits frame members 22-72 inches apart. For a larger drop, the Draw-tite # 41990-16

  • How to Pick Out a Hitch for a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Tow a 26 ft Trailer
  • Depends on the trailer. If the 26 foot trailer you plan on towing weighs less than 3,000 lbs then a hitch with that capacity would be adequate. You should note that if you are talking about traditional trailer towing you would need a hitch for the rear of your 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Curt Hitch part # C31047 that you referenced is a front hitch that installs on the front of your vehicle and would not be what you would need. You would want something like the Hidden Hitch part # 87752.

First make sure the truck and trailer are on level ground when taking the measurements. You will measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch on your 2012 Chevy Silverado.

  • Where Does Front Mount Trailer Hitch 65023 Install on a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500LD
  • The Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch # 65023 has 4 mounting locations. The 2 forward most mounting locations will use the tow hook mounting location (on vehicles equipped with tow hooks). I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. Provided you are within the capacities of the hitch at 500 pounds vertical load and 9,000 pounds line pull you should not have any frame failure like on your older truck. Honestly this is the first time I have heard of that happening

  • Will Draw-Tite Front-Mount Hitch # 65046 Fit 2006 Dodge Dually 3500
  • The Draw-Tite Front Hitch, part # 65046 is a fit for your 2006 Dodge 3500 Dually.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2010 to 2013 Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition

  • What Size Holes Need to be Drilled to Install Curt Front Mount Hitch on a 2014 Chevy Silverado
  • I am not sure why the instructions are not opening for you so I can email them to you in a separate email. But in the instructions step 4 says to drill four 17/32 inch holes. There is some fascia trimming required to install the hitch also shown in the instructions so you will need to compare them to your truck to see if the crash avoidance system or parking assist system will get in the way. Based on pictures I have seen of the hitch installed on customers trucks I do not believe it will be

  • Winch Recommendation for a 2006 Dodge Ram and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch
  • We carry Superwinch winches of various capacities. I have included a link to the available options for you. What really matters is what capacity you need. It is always better than go with an overrated winch rather than one that is rated just high enough. An overrated winch will not have to work as hard and the winch will last longer. The Talon series are the top of the line models and the Tiger Shark series are more entry level. You can get a 15.5k capacity Tiger Shark, # SW1515200, at a good

  • Will Draw-Tite Front-Mount Hitch Fit 2014 Jeep Wrangler With Tubular Bumper
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65055, you referenced is unfortunately not a fit for your 2014 Jeep Wrangler with the tubular bumper. I have attached the installation instructions and as you can see in Figure 1, there are bolts that are used on the underside of the square steel bumper. At the current time, we do not have a hitch for Jeeps with a tubular front bumper.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitches for a 2006 Dodge Ram and Winch
  • The Draw-Tite front hitch # 65046 is slightly less invasive than the Curt hitch # C31017 and thus will provide slightly less ground clearance but ultimately they are very close. The vertical pull capacity is basically like tongue weight on a rear mounted hitch. If you are not going to apply downward force to the hitch then the lower capacity of the Curt hitch should not be an issue. You mentioned using the hitch for a winch so there are some cases where vertical pull is a factor. For example

  • How Far Down Does a Front Trailer Hitch Hang for Ground Clearance on a 2006 Dodge Ram
  • 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 both hit

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1989 Chevy C2500 Pickup Truck
  • We do have some front mount hitches that fit a 1989 Chevy C2500 pickup but # 65005 only fits the 4-wheel drive models. For a 2-wheel drive we have # 65021. It fits as long as the truck is not a crew cab model and as long as it has 8-lug wheels. We also have Curt front hitch # 31043. It will fit as long as you do not have a cab and chassis model which has a frame width of 34 inches measured from the outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • For a similar front hitch that I can show you how far it will stick out in font of your bumper, which will let you see how easily it would be to pin, check out the Curt Front Hitch part # C31023. I attached a couple pics as well to show you what it will look like once installed. I also attached installation instructions and an install video. Most likely the Draw Tite Hitch # 65056 that you referenced would be pretty easy to pin as well, but since we have not had the chance to install this

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1998 Lincoln Navigator
  • We do have a front mount hitch that fits the 1998 Lincoln Navigator but it is not # 31049. Instead you will need Draw-Tite hitch # 65025. This hitch has a 500 pound vertical pull capacity (tongue weight) so make sure the weight of the snow plow does not exceed that. Also make sure the front axle capacity is high enough for use with a plow.

  • The Curt Front Hitch, part # 31180, is a fit for your 2004 Toyota Sequoia. This hitch has an easy, no-weld installation and is designed to be a specific fit for your Sequoia.

  • Will the Curt Front Mount Trailer hitch 31023 Fit a 2014 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt who told me that front mount hitch # C31023 will fit the 2014 GMC Sierra Denali but because of the differences in the front fascia/bumper and air dam there may be some trimming required to get the hitch to fit. Once installed the receiver will exit below the front license plate. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you.
