Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 1996 Jeep Wrangler

Today we are going to install part number 65048, our front-mount hitch, and we are going to install this on a 1996 Jeep Wrangler. The next thing we will do is show you where the hitch resides on the front of the vehicle. Most of the time you expect it to sit on the bottom of here, but in the Jeep style, the way the frame is built, the actual hitch sits on top, and that is where it is going to ride. What is going to happen next is we are going to take out the hardware and use the existing bolt holes under the plastic tube. So we put our hitch on first and just lay it on the top as we trace around it. So that is where we are going to cut around the plastic and put it back on when we are done. This is going to be identical on both sides. So let us start disassembling and get the trim piece off.





Jeep Wrangler Front Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Recommendation for Front Hitch Receiver to Mount Utility Snowplow # A400000HD on 1998 Jeep Wrangler
  • In order to mount the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow, # A40000HD, on your 1998 Jeep Wrangler, you would need to install the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C31028. This hitch attaches to the frame of the Jeep which will put the receiver tube below the bumper, much lower than an above the bumper style hitch. You are correct that the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Utility Snowplow, # A40000HD, requires that the receiver tube be 8 to 16 inches from the ground in order to...

  • Picture Request of a Front Mount Hitch Installed on a 1997 Jeep Wrangler
  • I attached a picture of the Curt Front Hitch part # C31028 installed on a similar Jeep Wrangler as your 1997 model. I also attached a set of installation instructions for you to check out that are very detailed. The hitch mounts through holes on the frame. Some of them are already there and some have to be drilled. I also attached a picture of the Draw Tite Hitch part # 65048 installed as well as installation instructions.

  • Will Draw-Tite Front-Mount Hitch Fit 2014 Jeep Wrangler With Tubular Bumper
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65055, you referenced is unfortunately not a fit for your 2014 Jeep Wrangler with the tubular bumper. I have attached the installation instructions and as you can see in Figure 1, there are bolts that are used on the underside of the square steel bumper. At the current time, we do not have a hitch for Jeeps with a tubular front bumper.

  • Does the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65055 Mount Inside or Outside of the Frame Rail
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch, # 65055, mounts on the inside of the vertical posts extending down from the frame rails. I have attached a diagram from the installation instructions showing the vertical post attached to the frame rail.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch that Mounts Under the Bumper on a 1998 Jeep Wrangler
  • We do have a front mount trailer hitch receiver that fits UNDER the bumper on a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. Take a look at Curt hitch # C31028. I have also linked the instructions to the right showing what it looks like installed. A lot of people look for the exact opposite: they want the receiver higher for ground clearance issues. But if you need it below the bumper then # C31028 is the receiver for you.

  • Using a Cargo Carry and Towing a Trailer at the Same Time with a 2011 Jeep Wrangler
  • I believe I have the perfect solution for you. Take a look at the cargo carrier that mounts to the spare tire, # SPSJ4319. This should put the cargo high enough to not interfere with the trailer. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you. If the 100 pound capacity of this carrier is not enough then there is another option. If your 2011 Jeep Wrangler has a soft top then you can use Jeep roof rack # B4141601 which has a 150 pound capacity. You can even add a tray, #...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Be Used in a Front Mount Hitch on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler
  • Technically, yes, you could put a trailer hitch mount cargo carrier in a front mount hitch like # 31432 on your 2011 Jeep Wrangler but there are some things you need to be aware of. A loaded cargo carrier can reduce driver visibility, block the vehicle lights, and reduce airflow to the motor. If the cargo is properly secured then you would not have to worry about that aspect of it. What I recommend is to go with the multi-purpose ball mount # D210. This will allow you to tow a trailer...

  • The Draw-Tite Front Mounted Receiver, part # 65048 has a GTW (gross trailer weight) rating of 3000 lbs, a straight line pull of 9,000 lbs and a vertical load capacity (maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from receiver) of 300 lbs.

  • Does Bumper have to be Removed to Install Front Mount Trailer Hitch on 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • If your 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a C-channel bumper and not a tube style bumper then front mount trailer hitch # 31408 will fit. To install this hitch you will not need to remove the vehicle bumper. There is a plastic shield between the bumper and grille that will have to come off but it does get reinstalled. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. Basically, the hitch attaches to the top of the C-channel bumper.

  • Draw-Tite Front Mounted Receiver # 65055 for 2012 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mounted Receiver, part # 65055 can withstand 9,000 lbs of line pull from a winch with the line at a 90 degree angle to the front of the vehicle. Vertical load is comparable to the tongue weight capacity for a rear-mounted receiver. The front receiver can safely withstand 500 lbs of lateral or downward force. The only method I can recommend for attaching a towbar to your Wrangler would be to use an approved base plate kit like one of those I have linked you to. The...

  • Difference in Above Bumper and Below Bumper Front Receiver Hitch for 2004 Jeep Wrangler
  • I would recommend to first check with the manufacturer of the hitch mount deer feeder to see if they recommend an above bumper hitch or a below bumper hitch on the front of your 2004 Jeep Wrangler. Depending on the style of the deer feeder you have you might need to have clearance from the bumper, so an above bumper hitch might work better for that application. The installation of the above bumper hitch like Curt Front Hitch, part # 31408, on your 2004 Jeep Wrangler, is listed as...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch that Mounts Under the Bumper for a 2002 Jeep Wrangler
  • We do offer a front mount receiver that is designed to fit below the bumper on a 2002 Jeep Wrangler. Take a look at CURT Front Mount Receiver, # C31028. I have included a link to the installation instructions. As you will see in the instructions, this hitch fits below the bumper and attaches to the vehicle frame. Even though there is some drilling required for installation, you will not need to remove anything mounted on top of the bumper.

  • Does the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Install Above or Below the Front Bumper on a 2004 Jeep Wrangler
  • The CURT Front Hitch, # 31408, attaches to the top of the front bumper on your 2004 Jeep Wrangler. I have included a link to installation instructions for you to review. The front mount hitch makes a great attachment point for a winch mounting plate or tow hook loop, see links.

  • Is There a Front Mount Bike Rack For Jeep Wrangler
  • If you have a front mounted hitch on your Jeep Wrangler then you would be able to mount a bike rack to that hitch. All the front mount hitches that we have available for the Jeep Wrangler are 2 inch hitches, so any hitch mounted bike rack, that fits 2 inch hitches, will work on your Jeep Wrangler. Keep in mind that the bike rack and bikes may obstruct your view when driving. You may also have to relocate your front license plate if the bikes or bike rack blocks it from being visible. We...

  • The Curt Front Mount Receiver, part # 31408 has a 3500 lb towing capacity, a 350 lb tongue weight capacity and can handle 9000 lb line pull when used with a winch. The receiver has plenty of capacity for handling the SnowSoprt HD Plow. I will include a link to the Receiver installation instructions as well as a product description video for the SnowSport Plow. You can find these links below.

  • What is the Front Mount Hitch Position When Curt Hitch 31432 is Installed on a 2010 Jeep Wrangler
  • I have seen the same thing on several jeeps. So I was looking at the directions, which I have attached below, for Curt front mount hitch, # 31432, to determine its position when installed on the vehicle. By looking at the instructions, it still is not too clear, though it appears as though the opening will be more or less flush with the center of the bumper. I spoke with my contact at Curt, the manufacturer, and they told me that the hitch arms mount above the bumper and the actual...

  • Does Front Hitch 31432 Have a Class Rating
  • Front-mounted hitch # 31432 does not have a class specification, but it does have a 2 inch opening, and a towing capacity rating of 3500 pounds with a tongue rating weight of 350 pounds, which is typically the capacity at which class III, 2 inch hitch would be rated. Please note that you will need to make sure that the cargo carrier and any items you carry on it do not block your vehicle's headlights.
