Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • Wiring for Electric Winch at the Front and Rear of a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 Duramax
  • First, you are going to need a couple sets of quick disconnects such as # SW2236. You will need enough 2 to 4 gauge wire to reach from the front of the truck to the batteries and from the rear of the truck to the batteries. Another option is to get a couple of winch wiring kits, # SW2008. The winch power and ground wires will attach to one disconnect and the wiring to the batteries will attach to the mating quick disconnect. Diesel trucks normally have 2 batteries so the isolator...

  • Is it Okay to Use Winch with More Capacity than Front Hitch of Vehicle for Recovery
  • If you were to be in a situation that would put all of the winches strength to use (which would be unlikely) it would end up damaging either your vehicle or the hitch. Now the likelihood of you being in a situation where you would be pulling 10k worth of force-and your Wrangler not moving to offset it would be pretty unlikely. The line pull of the part # 65069 is 9k which is pretty close to the capacity of a 10k winch and the winch mount part # BDW20155.

  • 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.

  • 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,...

  • Do Curt Front Hitches 31012 and 31069 Install Same and Have Same Ground Clearance
  • The Curt front hitch part # C31069 that you are interested in would install in the same frame holes on your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 as the front hitch part # C31012 that you weren't happy with. From the mounting surface to the bottom of the hitch tube on the # C31069 measures 9.52 inches. This should give you slightly better ground clearance than the Curt you already tried.

  • Does Front Air Damn have to be Permanently Removed to Install Font Receiver on 2016 Nissan Frontier
  • Yes, you will need to permanently remove the front air dam on the 2016 Nissan Frontier in order to install either of the front mount hitches available for it; # 65075 or # 31241. In my opinion having to remove it rather than having to trim it is better because at least you still have the intact part should you ever need to put it back on.

My Curt representative also told me that there might be differences in the front suspension members that would interfere with the hitch.

The Draw-Tite model isn't a fit for Denali models, and will require you trim the fascia where the front license plate is located in order for the receiver tube to pass through the fascia (see diagram.)
