Front Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Ford F-150 - Curt
Today on our 2010 Ford F-150, we'll be installing the Curt, front mount trailer hitch receiver with a 2" opening in the receiver, part number 31368. Here's what the hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for the hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper on the front of the vehicle, which in this case is the license plate holder, is approximately 8 1/2". From the top of the opening of the receiver to the ground is approximately 11 3/4". Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. As you can see here, this particular vehicle is equipped with a rear air dam.
Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Ford F150
Today we are going to install part number 65043 from Draw Tite and we are going to install this on a 2006 Ford F150. This will be a front mounted hitch. Our hitch will install on the inside of the frame. It will use existing holes that are in here. The holes that will be used in the frame will be the square hole here and this round hole up here, that is sometimes covered by this balance right here. We can start by actually holding up the hitch into position. This is a good one to have an extra set of hands for. It goes on the inside of the frame and there are 2 notches on there to keep it a little bit higher or a little bit lower depending on clearance with your bumper. It is a good idea to install your hitch as close as possible then install your hardware. In this case we have the hitch install in the lowest position. That should give you an idea of what kind of clearance you can expect. Once you have your bolts installed you can go ahead and install your hardware. You still want to leave it loose because you might have to move your hitch back and forth for the rest of the hardware.
