Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate - C31010

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (44 Customer Reviews)


this was the project at hand . I built the winch carrier and needed your front receiver hitch to attach to the 1998 Chev and give it more solidity to handle any thing that came up . Awesome product great doing business with y'all. From Morehead City North Carolina . THANKS


Five, Front Receiver hitch and Winch Mount. Pictures say a thousand words. Would Recommend.


This item has been great, I flat tow a 1997 Jeep Cherokee behind my motorhome. After I remove the tow bar, this item allows me to install my winch on the front of the Jeep for some off road fun.


Wife didn't want a beefy new bumper on the grocery-getter all year around. So, I tried this front receiver route for my infrequent off-road needs. First, it came quickly and was well packaged. E-trailer was great to deal with.

Receiver is quite strong itself, but it is fastened with 6 bolts, none of which actually goes into the Jeep frame (only into about 1/16 steel). 2 bolts each side go through one side of the vertical upright piece that hangs the cross-tray from the frame behind the stock bumper. The other 2 go trough the big holes in the bottom of the thin steel bumper liner. If your winch does ever over-pull, it is far more likely to damage the Jeep than the receiver, I suspect. I have not been able to get a good definition of what “line pull” means but I have been told it's a rolling load type measurement being way lower in terms of static pull equivalent.

Mounted, the receiver backs up to the cross-tray. The issue with this is that when used with a plate like the Curt 31010, it won't allow the plate to be fully inserted such that you can access the 3rd (deepest) hole. This leaves the mounted plate sticking out about 3” from the front bumper face and certainly adds unwanted leverage to any off center pull condition. It also looks bad. I've debated cutting off the 2” bar about an inch (or alternatively cutting a notch in the top of the jeep crosspiece). Both fixes have drawbacks. I don't like cutting the jeep, but if I shorten the plate shaft by a hole, I might have issues using it in the back receiver without having to remove the spare tire (or carrying a receiver extender). In place, the plate is quite wobbly in the receiver and creates a noise concern if driving bumpy roads . I may weld some shims to tighten the fit. Suggestion: Before you bolt the receiver on, put your plate in it with the pin in the deepest hole. Then take a pencil and mark the plate shaft where/if it sticks out the back of the receiver. You will then know exactly how much would need to be trimmed if you decide to later.

Bottom line, I'm thinking about something more akin to a UTV winch (3-4.5k) for the receiver mount. I can still will carry a snatch block as a doubler in rare cases I need more.

Regarding installation, I had the whole bumper off. While this is not necessary, I think it would be absolutely crazy not to at least remove the horizontal plastic piece on top of the frame just behind the bumper so you can see everything you are doing from the top. Two plastic push pins with Phillips screws release it.

Think long and hard at a beefy front aftermarket bumper if you think you may need some really heavy duty winching.


I installed the front hitch bar to expand the flexibility and uses for my truck. The hitch fit nicely with only minor adjustments. I was easily able to install the hitch by myself. I have two primary plans for the hitch: 1- Use a trailer ball to move two trailers I have around my work area with precision and less guessing by facing forward. 2- I have a front winch plate that can be added as needed to use a winch for those off road needs.
The staff at Etrailer were most helpful especially arranging a special delivery time to be sure I was home when it arrived.


Works as it should and I have definitely pushed the limits of my winch, receiver and this plate with no issues. (7k truck + 11k trailer, up a fairly steep hill; my poor winch).


The Badlands 12,000 lb winch bolt pattern fits the holes to be used for the handle set, so don't plan on using the handles with the Badlands 12,000 lb winch without buying new longer bolts. Lots easier than making one from scratch, which is what I've done before. Guess @ 70 I'm getting lazy.


received product, was as described, no real instruction needed as it fit perfectly into receiving hitch, it did include a recommended towing/winching angle instruction page


My Warn winch fits perfectly on this mounting plate, truly allows me multiple winching possibilities from the front or back of the truck.


All three items that I ordered arrived sooner than anticipated and in perfect condition. Very seldom does an on-line purchase exceed my expectations like this order with! Thanks!


Product as described. Holds/supports my winch great!


The front receiver for my 2019 Jeep JL arrived on time and fit like socks on a rooster. Installing took about 30 minutes. A tip leave air dam off.


Just got my winch plate.... I love it. I got my truck all set up for spring and summer. Once again etrailer To The Rescue.... Thank You guys.


Just what I wanted for a project I that was working on. Found one local that was a little cheaper, but they had no stock. Now I can use my winch on the back of my truck or mount it to my trailer.


Great Product! Exactly what was described from the item description.
Very fast delivery. Cant understand why this product came quicker to a LA address when an order was placed from another website within 60 miles and will not receive until 3 days from now.
Will stop at this site first next time.


Price was right and product worked perfectly!! I asked for UPS ground shipping ( 7 -10 days ) and it arrived in 4 days, I would definitely order from etrailer again!!!!


appears well constructed and milled correctly. The winch bolted up perfectly.


Beefy and bought with confidence from e trailer


The products I ordered did exactly what you said they would do.
Quick delivery and even a year later follow up.
Can't get better than that.


Used to mount a removable winch on my 2004 Grand Cherokee. Works great and very well made.


Very well made, good looking welds, no porosity visible. Nice heavy metal throughout, should hold up very well. Can’t wait to mount the winch and go find a nice sturdy tree to pull against.


the product is sturdy and well built and still mounted,thanks henry


Great product. Very heavy duty! Can’t go wrong with it. Excellent customer service and shipping!!!


This product is high quality and made from thicker steel than the units found on other online retailers.


I bought this for my husband to go with his winch set up and he loves it... I will be ordering more stud from you guys...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Winch Mount C31004 has a Capacity of 9,000 Pounds Straight Pull
    This Curt Trailer Hitch Winch Mount, part # C31010 has a capacity of 9,000 pounds straight pull. You will need to find the weight capacity of the hitch as well, and compare the capacities, using the lowest limiting factor. We do not sell Warn winches, so I am not completely sure if this mount is compatible with a Warn winch. However, the first set of mounting holes are 10 by 4-1/2 inches, and the second set of mounting holes measure 6-1/2 by 4-1/2 inches center to center. In general, you...

    For the Curt winch mount, # C31010, or any of the similar mounts, you will need to compare the mounting pattern on the mount to what your winch requires. I have included 2 pictures. One shows the mount pattern of the Curt mount.

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate Work with a Ramsey 15000 Winch
    We do not carry Ramsey winches, but from what I could find on the Ramsey 15000 winch it uses a 10" x 4.5" mounting pattern. As long as that is correct, then the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010 would work for your winch. I recommend that you measure the bolt mounting pattern on your winch to confirm.

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate Work With a Warn M8000 Winch
    Yes, the Warn M8000 Winch uses a 10" x 4-1/2" mounting pattern which the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate part # C31010 will accept so they can be used together just fine. The 10" x 4-1/2" mounting pattern is an industry standard mounting pattern for most winches up to a certain capacity.

Our most popular mounting plates for front mount hitch is the CURT Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate, part # C31010, that you have referenced. You will need to match up the mounting hole dimensions on your electric winch to the mounting hole dimensions on the mounting plate to make sure it will fit.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch and Winch Mount for a 2004 Chevy Silverado
    In order to mount a winch at the front of your 2004 Chevy Silverado, the first thing you are going to need is a front mount hitch. I have included a link to the front mount hitches we carry for the 2004 Silverado. I would need to know if it is a 1500 light duty, 1500HD, 2500 or 3500 to determine the best option. Then you would need a mount that fits in the receiver like # C31010. But you have to determine if the mounting hole pattern on the winch matches the one on the mount. I have included...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Front Hitch to Mount a Winch on a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 LS
    The # 65028 front mounted hitch is the only one we offer to fit a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban 2500. It looks like the hitch opening should end up nearly even with the main face of the bumper. Take a look at the diagram in the instructions link I provided to get a better idea of where the hitch will sit once installed. Typically, you would use a winch mount plate like the Curt # C31010 that slides into the hitch. Depending on the winch, using a mount like this should bring it out far enough...

    For your 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van with 144 Wheel Base, you would need to use the winch on the rear receiver as there are not any front hitch receiver options from our manufacturers compatible with your vehicle. We do have a rear trailer hitch receiver compatible with your vehicle. It is the Curt Class III # 13358. For a winch mount, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010.

  • Highest Rated Front Mount Hitch for 2019 Ford F-150 For Use With Winch
    The highest rated front mount trailer hitch for a 2019 Ford F-150 is the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31083 which is rated for 9,000 lb line pull. If you don't already have a winch mount, the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate part # C31010 will work well for this. Please note, you can still use a 12,000 lb winch on the above vehicle but you would be limited to 9,000 lbs of line pull strength which would still be plenty for vehicle recovery.

  • Winch Mounting Plate for 2 Hitch Receiver to Fit Warn M12000 Winch
    From what I was able to find, the Warn M12000 winch is 24.37" L. x 8.45" D. x 11" H. I've attached a picture with the dimensions on the Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Plate # BDW20011 but since the mounting cradle is only 8-5/16" wide (8.31") your Warn winch is going to be just a bit too large for this cradle. Since Warn winches are traditionally a bit larger than Bulldogs, I'd recommend using a winch plate like the Curt Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010. This is also a hitch mounted...

    If your Durango is a 4WD model, we do indeed have a front mounted receiver that would fit. You'd need the Curt Front Mounted Receiver, part # 31080.

  • Winch Mounted To Plate For 2 Inch Receiver Compatible With Class III Hitch
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31010 is not rated for line pull. That rating would be specific to your trailer hitch. Front mounted hitches are often rated in this way but rear mounted hitches are not. I would need to know your specific winch as well as your trailer hitch receiver being used to determine the compatibility.
