Then, to remove the ball, pull up on the center, twist it and hold it, and pull it out.

Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • Availability of Front Mounted Hitch for 2009 Toyota 4Runner
  • We do indeed offer a front mounted receiver. The Curt Front Mount Receiver, part # 31367 would be a fit for your 2009 4Runner. I've linked you to a video showing the hitch being installed on a FJ Cruiser. The procedure on your 4Runner would be identical. The Curt # 31241 hitch you referred to is a front mounted receiver for a Nissan Pathfinder or Frontier, and wouldn't fit your 4Runner.

  • Is Bumper Trimming Required to Install a Front Mount Receiver on a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The Curt front mount hitch # C31018 should only require fascia trimming if it is installed in the "rise" position. There are 2 ways this hitch can be installed and the receiver will either be below the front fascia or exit higher up. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. The Draw-Tite hitch, # 65049, only requires fascia trimming if the truck is a 4-wheel drive model. I have linked instructions for this hitch as well.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The Draw Tite Hitch part # 65046 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2007 Dodge Ram so I would recommend it for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For a snow plow I would recommend the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow # A40000HD because of how well it works and how easy it is to use.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Ford E450 RV Motorhome Class C
  • The Curt Front Hitch # 33055 and the Draw Tite Hitch part # 65001 have both been confirmed to fit your 2004 Ford E450 motorhome Class C. Either will work just as well as the other as they both install the same and have the same capacities, but I would go with the Curt because it has a better price and more reviews on it.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2002 Chevy S-10 Manual Transmission
  • From the research I did it looks like a drive shaft disconnect is recommended for flat towing your 2002 S-10. This is surprising to me though since typically manual transmission vehicles are good to go as-is for flat towing. All you usually have to do is put the vehicle in neutral and it is ready. However, the owners manual of a vehicle is the final authority on flat towing procedures for a vehicle. As long as your S-10 is a 2 wheel drive truck the correct base plate kit would be the...

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver for a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 Laramie
  • I checked with Draw-Tite and front mount hitch # 65046 does not exclude Laramie models of the 2003 Dodge Ram 3500. Curt hitch # C31017 excludes Laramie models on the 3500 series. However, for the Draw-Tite hitch one customer said that the tow hook brackets required some modification to provide clearance for the hitch (3mm grinding).

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Jeep Wrangler for Winch Plate
  • The Agri-Cover SnowSport Front Mount Hitch # A40162 is designed for plowing with a plow like part # A40000HD. It has a lower hitch opening so that it is compatible with this plow. I wouldn't recommend it for winching as it wasn't designed for that. Instead I would recommend the Curt Front Hitch part # 31408 for a winch. For a winch mounting plate you could use the # 6495. For a recovery winch check out the Superwinch X9 Recovery Winch, # 1901C.

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Canyon
  • The Curt Front Hitch part # C31074 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit the 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado so it would work well for you. For a plow you would want the Agri-Cover Plow # A40000HD. This is a very easy to use, effective plow that would work great for you. It doesn't require any wiring or in-depth installation either like the winch powered plows do.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie Diesel 4x4
  • When it comes to Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65046 the 2003 to 2009 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 series will be the same. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. I have also included a link to a video showing installation on a 2007 model that you can use as a guide for your 2004. The receiver will be directly under the front air damn which is the lowest point at the front of the vehicle and there should not be anything in the way. It is possible that the...

  • Correcting Gap Between Hitch Mounting Bracket and Truck Frame for Curt # C31023 Hitch
  • Sometimes during shipping hitches will bend slightly. It could have been that the mounting brackets of the Curt hitch part # C31023 got slightly bent and that is why you had a small gap between the bracket and the frame of the truck. Typically we recommend people use an open stairwell or a large vice to apply leverage to the brackets so that they can be bent back. As long as the metal doesn't crease or paint doesn't flake off during either the initial bend or the bending back the integrity...

  • How Does a Bolt Leader/Fishwire Work when Installing a Front Mount Receiver on a 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • I have included links to a video that, in part, shows how to fishwire hardware when installing a hitch and to our help article with installation tips. Basically, you will run the fishwire through the hole that you will be using with the spring-looking end going in first. Pull it out through another access hole. Slide the block spacer on first. Thread the hardware to the spring end and then pull the other end of the fishwire back through the first hole so that the threaded part of the...

  • Front Hitch and Snow Plow Recommendation for a 2012 Jeep Liberty
  • Yes, the Curt Front Hitch part # C31020 would be an excellent choice for your 2012 Jeep Liberty so that you can do some snow plowing. For a compatible snow plow that would do a great job and would be very easy to use I would recommend the Agri-Cover Snowplow part # A80849KIT.

  • Can Installation Of Front-Mount Hitch On 2008 Jeep Wrangler Be Modified
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65055 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. Modifying the installation would void the warranty on the hitch, and possibly create a safety concern. I...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • At 350 pounds of tongue weight you would be over the capacity of Curt front receiver # C31033 for your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee which is actually rated for 300 pounds. You would have to lower the tongue weight of the trailer by moving some weight towards the back of the trailer and then move it using the hitch.

  • The Curt front mount receiver # 31241 and the bull bars available for your 2012 Nissan Frontier install on the bottom of the truck frame in the same location. You can have one installed at a time. The hitch attaches directly to the bottom of the frame and the bull bars have brackets that attach to the bottoms of the frame. While it is possible that the bull bar brackets can be sandwiched between the frame and the hitch, or the hitch between the brackets and the frame, the products are...

  • Front Hitch and Winch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Tundra
  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 31198 is the correct front mount hitch for your 2014 Toyota Tundra, for a winch mounting plate you would want the # C31010. The hitch is rated for 9,000 lbs. For an entry level 9,500 lb winch I would recommend the Superwinch Tiger Shark Series Off-Road Winch # SW1595200. For a much quicker winch that will feed the wire cable in almost twice as fast I would recommend the Superwinch Talon Series Off-Road Winch # SW1695200.

We do not offer any front hitches for your 2014 RAV4, nor for the earlier model years that I also checked. Since you have a bull bar and...

  • How To Determine Where the Curt Front Hitch # 31310 will Install on a Vehicle
  • I don't have the exact measurement you are looking for, BUT I can tell you how to locate exactly where the hitch opening will be on the front of your vehicle when it is installed. From the lower mounting hole on the side brackets of the hitch down to the hitch opening will be 5-1/4 inches if you find where that hole is on your truck and then measure down 5-1/4 inches you will now where the top of the hitch opening will be relative to your truck, and then from the mounting surface where...
