Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • 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...

I have included a picture of the hitch # 65063 that you can view as well. You stated you have a snow plow prep package and the front mount trailer hitch # 65063 will fit just fine and not interfere with the snow package as long as the truck has the front tow hooks.

  • 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. I have included a link to the right to the installation instructions for you to view. The hitch has an overall width of 40.6 inches and from bolt hole to bolt hole it measures...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch And Bike Rack For 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser With Backup Camera
  • With the backup camera mounted in the middle of the spare tire hub on your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser, it will be impossible to find a spare tire mounted bike carrier that would not interfere with the camera. Installing a rear hitch on your Cruiser and installing a bike rack would block the camera as well. My only recommendation would be to install a front mount hitch like part # 31367, on your Cruiser. You could then use a bike rack on the front of your vehicle. This hitch has a 350 lb...

  • Is Front-Mount Hitch # 31310 Compatible with Western Uni-Mount Snowplow on 1995 Ford F250 4WD
  • I was able to find images of the Western Uni-Mount Snowplow and based on how its mounting brackets appear, I suspect there would be interference with installation of a front-mount hitch such as the Curt # 31310 you referenced. You can use the linked installation instructions for this hitch and compare them to what you see under your truck's front grille to see if the hitch mounting points are still accessible.

  • Does Skid Shield have to be Removed to Install Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch on 2011 Toyota Tacoma
  • The skid shield may need to be removed to install Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31313. It might also be possible to trim it. The instructions do not mention the skid plate at all, see link to the right. You should not drill into or weld to the hitch so if the lights can attach another way then it is possible to secure them to the hitch. Take a look at the picture of the hitch installed that I have included to get an idea of how much space there is after installation.

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Extension for 2014 Dodge Ram with Front Mount Trailer Hitch
  • I do have a solution that might work for you, though it is not an extender. An extender would reduce your tongue weight capacity of the hitch by half, so it is not the best solution for you. Instead, I recommend a long ball mount. Take a look at # 2736 as an example. It is rated for 5,000 pounds and measures 12 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. We also have # BM20. This ball mount measures 13-1/4"...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 that Does Not Require Fascia Trimming
  • Curt front mount hitch # 31320 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. There is no trimming indicated in the instructions, linked to the right, for a 2004 model, just 2006 and later models. I have included a link to a video showing installation on a 2006 model so you can ignore any trimming parts. Everything else should be exactly the same on your 2004.
