Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • Cargo Carrier for Front Mounted Receiver on 2005 Silverado to Carry Chest Freezer Full of Elk
  • What are the dimensions of the freezer you're asking about? The standard railed carrier, like the Pro Series # 63153 measures 24x60. For something a bit narrow and longer at 47x 20-1/2, take a look at the MaxxTow # MT70108. Both carriers have a 500 lb capacity, but keep in mind that the weight of the carrier plays into the tongue weight as well. The carrier, the freezer and the meat in the freezer couldn't weigh more than 500 lbs. You should also consider that carrying a freezer...

  • Skid Plate Removal Required on 2013 Toyota Tundra w/ Front Hitch Installed
  • According to Curt, if the truck is equipped with the skid plate, the skid plate will need to be removed or have the 4 inch diameter hole drilled in it to allow for oil changes. The hitch cannot be removed each time the oil needs changing, because the hitch hardware is designed for one-time usage only. Once the bolts are install and torqued one time, any subsequent use would weaken the bolts, leading to an unknown weight rating. So, you can remove the skid plate completely, install the...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2014 GMC Sierra SLE
  • For your 2014 GMC Sierra 2500 you would be best served by getting the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65056. This hitch will give you additional ground clearance as the hitch opening will come out where the license plate normally installs, whereas the Curt Hitch part # C31023 that you referenced hangs below the bumper. I attached installation instructions for you to check out as well.

  • Socket Size that is Between 3/4 inch and 11/16 inch
  • A 3/4 inch socket is right at 19 mm and a 11/16 socket is right at 17.5 mm. An 18 mm socket would be right in the middle between the two and should work well for you.

  • Installation Instructions for Front Mount Trailer Hitches for a 2004 GMC Yukon
  • If you are talking about Curt hitch # 31302, the instructions do not mention drilling at all. And the first step says that models with tow hooks must remove the factory bolt from the underside of the frame at the forward attachment point. I have linked the instructions to the right for reference. I think you might be talking about hitch # 65023. Again the tow hooks are mentioned right away. If the vehicle has tow hooks you will remove the M12 bolts from the frame. Then you will place...

  • Will a Fisher XV2 Snowplow and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Fit on a 2015 Ford F-350
  • I compared the installation instructions for the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, # 65049, and the Fisher XV2 Plow for your 2015 Ford F-350 and it appears that it is the same case as the 2009 F-350. The mounting kit for the plow and the hitch install at the same location on the frame and use the same bolt holes. Stacking the brackets is not recommended and would likely void the manufacturers warranties. If a front mount hitch is more important than a plow, then I would recommend using a...

  • Can Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65005 Be Installed Inverted
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65005 carries a warranty and specific capacity ratings based on the standard installation determined by the engineers that designed it. Any modifications, such as grinding off the reinforcing gussets, or altered installation, such as mounting it upside down, will void the warranty, result in unknown capacities and could also potentially exposure you to liabilities in the event that the hitch failed from this modified/non-standard installation. Therefore...

The Curt hitch receiver will be directly beneath the front fascia on the truck, see picture.

The Draw-Tite hitch does require fascia trimming and you will need to relocate the front license plate,...

  • Can a Front Mount Trailer Hitch and Westin Bull Bar be Installed Together on a 2009 GMC Sierra 1500
  • The issue is that bull bars, grille guards, base plates, and front mount trailer hitches all attach to basically the same place on the vehicle frame and/or occupy much of the same space in front of the vehicle. What this means is you could have one at a time only. But that might not be the case on your 2009 GMC Sierra 1500. Looking at the instructions for the Westin Bull Bars it appears that mount to the insides of the frame rails like # 32-2275 as an example. Draw-Tite front mount hitch...

  • How to Tow a 2000 Chevy S10 Behind a Motor Home as Inexpensively as Possible
  • There is certain equipment required by law to flat tow a vehicle. That equipment includes base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. If you just need to tow the 2000 Chevy S10 once or twice, the expense is likely not worth it. But if you flat tow the truck often behind a motor home then you are going to need these items. Check the S10 owners manual to see if it can be dolly towed (with the front wheels up on a dolly). If so you could rent or otherwise...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Ford F-250 for a Snow Plow
  • The only front mount hitch option for your 2004 Ford F-250 is # 65022. But this receiver will exit in between the tow hooks. I cannot recommend using a custom hitch such as # C31014 for fabrication but you could use fabrication parts to have a custom fabricator make a hitch that will fit. I have linked the hitch fabrication parts we carry. You would just need a crossmember. This is likely going to be less expensive then trying to adapt a hitch to fit.

  • Will Curt Front Trailer Hitch 31313 Fit a Base Model 2-Wheel Drive 2007 Toyota Tacoma
  • Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31313 fits all models of the 2007 Toyota Tacoma. There should not be any interference with any of the truck components since the hitch sits out in front of the ends of the frame and in front of the bumper beam as shown in the instructions I have linked for you. Even though it isn't much fun, try not to accelerate into any ditches! You may also be interested in the winch mount # C31010. I have linked a video on the mount and a picture showing the winch...

  • Front-Mount Hitch For Winch On 2001 Ford F-250 Truck With Blocker Beam
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and asked about your 2001 Ford F-250 truck. They told me that the reason for the difference in fit is due to the blocker beam that is installed on the truck. You actually purchased the correct front mounted hitch, part # C31014, if your truck has the front bumper bar. They told me that due to the bar, the hitch will be mounted in a different manner and the receiver will be below the bumper, not through the middle of the bumper like part # 31114.

  • Does Plastic Trim Piece in 2014 Ram 2500 have to be Removed to Install a Front Mount Hitch
  • I believe I know what you are talking about. It is basically a trim piece that occupies the same space the front hitch # 65063 would when installed. That will have to come out to install the hitch based on what I have seen on the 2014 Rams. But it might not. The only way to know for sure is to install the hitch. Basically the hitch attaches to the same place as the tow hooks and the tow hooks will be retained. But the receiver and cross member are out a few inches from the mounting...
