Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate Installation - 2003 Ford F-250

Speaker: Today, on our 2003 Ford F-250, well be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch, electric winch mount plate part number C31010. In conjunction with the winch mount plate, well also be installing the Curt Trailer Winch mount handles part number C31005. The winch mount plate accommodates many different sizes as well as styles of electric winches. For todays purposes, well be installing the Superwinch Talon 12.5i winch. This is part number SW1612210. To begin with, were going to go ahead and put the winch mount plate into the rear receiver on this vehicle. Well then go ahead and put the pin and clip in place.

The pin and clip that well be using for todays purposes is part number PC3. Next, its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the handles if you set the winch on as the handle mounts will go underneath the winch in-between the winch and the mounting plate. Depending on your exact model of winch will determine which hardware youll use to mount your winch to the mounting plate. In our case, because we added the handles as well as the winch mounting plate we had to get a little bit longer bolt to accommodate the extra length. When changing hardware, always make sure that you use the same grade hardware that comes with your winch mounting kit. Also, because our hardware had a smaller washer on the underside, and the groove and the plate was a little bit larger we went ahead and added a hardened washer underneath here as well to keep the washer from pulling through the plate. Next, were going to go ahead and take the nuts at all four locations and put them into their appropriate pocket area. Well then take the lock washer, followed by the small flat washer, and finally the hardened washer, and well thread it through the bottom, through the handle mount and into the bottom side of the winch.

Well go ahead and do this for both mounting locations here on the one side. We can go ahead and center everything up. Then well repeat it for the other side as well. Then well tighten everything down. Now that we have the four bolts tightened down now were ready to put our roller flare in place. To mount our roller flare, because of how big the groove is in the mounting bracket, were going to go ahead again and add an extra hardened washer here.

Well go ahead and take our bolt and feed it through the back side, and then slide the roller head on to each of the bolts. Once we have it held up, well go ahead and put another washer on followed by the locknut. The bottom roller was loose on one side to allow it to move up and down. That way we can pull our cable through. Once we get our cable pulled through, well go ahead and tighten down this nut so that the cable cannot pull back through. Now that we have our roller flare bolted down, all thats left to do is put the hook on the end of the cable. To do this, simply slide the hook over the end of the cable.

Well go ahead and slide the pin through, and then put the clip in. Once weve done the clip, that will complete the installation of mounting the winch as well as the winch handles to the mounting plate. Part number C31010. .

  • Wiring to Use an Electric Winch at the Front and Back of a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
    Glad to hear that you will be using the Draw-Tite # 65078 to mount the (discontinued) Superwinch Tiger Shark Off-Road Winch SW1595200 to the front of your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. To easily swap the Tiger Shark winch from the front of your Silverado to the back I recommend using the Bulldog Winch Front Wiring Kit # BDW20025 and the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20207. The front kit has 8' of wire while the rear kit has 24' of wire which should be more than enough for your...

  • Front Mount Hitch and Winch Recommendation for 2014 Ford F-150 4x4 with EcoBoost Engine
    You can certainly use a front mount hitch with a winch mounting plate to provide a winch at the front of your 2014 Ford F-150. For a front mount hitch for your truck, I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31068. No drilling is required to install this hitch, but you may need to trim the front air dam and/or front fascia. This hitch offers 9,000 pound capacity for line pull, and a 500 pound vertical load capacity. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on...

  • Can Top Receiver on Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount be Used to Mount a Winch
    You can use the top receiver on the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 to mount a winch. You will need a Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate like the Curt # C31010. I also recommend adding the Curt Handles, part # C31005, which will make transportation much easier and protects the winch. Keep in mind that depending on the winch you have and your trailer's coupler, space might be limited after the winch is mounted. The plate is 8-1/4 inches wide and from the back of the plate to...

  • Installation And Operation Of Front Mounted Winch On 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    It does not matter which battery the Superwinch Tiger Shark series winch you mentioned is connected to in your 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Diesel. The batteries are run in series so you have better cracking amps, but which battery you connect to won't affect any accessories. I suggest runing the engine while using the winch because the alternator will help give you more power and it will keep your batteries from draining and preventing start-up. For the front receiver, I recommend...

  • Front Mount Hitch Options for a Winch on a 2018 Ford F-150
    The front mount hitch receivers from Curt and Draw-Tite that fit your 2018 Ford F-150 are parts # C31083 and # 65067 respectively. Both of these are rated for 9,000 lbs line pull and 500 lbs vertical load. From the 2 bolts holes on the Curt to the top of the receiver tube measures just under 7-1/2" while that same distance on the Draw-Tite is closer to 7". The Draw-Tite will give you more ground clearance but not by much. Instructions for both receivers have been linked for you to reference. If...

  • Front Hitch Receiver and Winch Mount Plate for 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4
    The Curt Front Mount 2 Inch Hitch, part # 31042, that you have referenced, is the only front hitch I have that will fit your 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4. It has a line pull rating of 9,000 lbs, so if you use a winch with a 10,000-lb line pull rating you will be limited to the lower 9,000-lb rating of the hitch. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Curt hitch. To install the winch to the hitch you will need the Curt Electric Winch Mount Plate, part # C31010. This...

    The weight capacity of the Curt Trailer Hitch Winch Mount # C31010 is 9000 lbs of straight pull.

  • Looking for Bolt-On Handle for Moving Yard Vacuum
    We actually carry handles that would work very well for that purpose. Take a look at part # C31005. I believe this handle would work much better thank the # FCH0201 coupler mounted handle you mentioned. My Curt representative tells me that the winch mount handles do not carry a weight rating. They are meant to be bolted to a winch mounting plate to make transporting the winch easier. As the heaviest winches we carry weigh up to 200 lbs, I would say they should handle at least that amount...
