Today we're going to be taking a look at the best front hitch options for you 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. Up top we've got the Curt, part number C31071.

Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Ford E-350

Today on our 2007 E350 RV Cutaway, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Draw Tite front mount trailer hitch receiver, part number 65001. What I really like about this hitch is the versatility of it because you can use it with a bike rack, a cargo carrier and some of our customers have said that they like to do that because they pull a trailer behind their motor home. It can also be used for a winch for maybe pulling a ATV or 4-wheeler out of the mud offroad. It's nicely tucked up and hidden to where all you can see is the face of the receiver tube opening here and that's even nice and tight against the bottom side of the fascia. This hitch also features these recovery eye hooks. It's got one on either side to allow you to attach a safety chain or winch cable, anything like that because you don't want to hook it to a ball mount that would be in the hitch. This hitch features the 2" by 2" receiver tube opening with the welded on reinforcement collar all the way around here.

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C31071. Here's what this front hitch is going to look like once it's installed on the truck. As you can see, it tucks up nicely to the underside of this front fascia down here. You're going to have really easy access in order to use your hitch with any accessories that you may have. It features a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening with nice welded on reinforcement collar. It features the 5/8 inch hitch pin hole in order to secure any class 3 accessories. This front hitch is a nice, easy bolt on application.


Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, we're going to be taking a look at, and also showing you how to install, the CURT front mounted trailer hitch receiver. This is a custom fit that offers a 2" x 2" opening. The part number is C31023. This is what our hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, pretty clean appearance. As you can see, most of it remains hidden behind our front fascia, here. In the middle, we've got our 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube opening.


Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 GMC Yukon - Curt

Today on our 2008 GMC Yukon, we're going to take a look at and then showing you how to install the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver. This is a custom fit, offering a 2-inch by 2-inch opening. It's part number is C31012. This is going to be a great way to get a hitch on the front of the vehicle to help us with certain tasks that we need to accomplish without adding or detracting too much from the look of our vehicle. As you can see, our main crosstube and everything is going to be hidden back behind this lower fascia panel. We had to trim that out a little bit, but that was a really minor thing to do. Looks like below that, our hitch is going to come down about 2 and 3/8 of an inch, so just keep that in mind. If clearance is an issue with you getting in and out of the driveway or something, might not be something that you want. We've got that nice clean, flush look on the end here.
