Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Front Hitch 6771 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 6771. This is the Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch receiver skid shield. This is really going to help protect the front mounted trailer hitch from low lying obstacles. You can see how it has nice slant here, so it's going to deflect objects to go around that portion and back underneath your vehicle, providing the ultimate protection. It's made out of a nice sturdy steel construction. It has a nice gloss powder coat finish on it so it's going to stand up well to rust and corrosion. You see here that the shank is a hollow shank.

The skid plate's just welded on to the end of that shank with the angled weld. A couple of measurements to go over, real quick. The overall measurement from tip to tip, this point here, is going to measure about eight and three-quarters of an inch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the skid plate is going to measure three and one quarter of an inch. Center of the hitch pin hole to the top of the skid plate, this portion here, is going to measure five and three-quarters of an inch. The skid plate's overall width is going to measure right at five inches.

Overall height is going to measure four and one-quarter of an inch. The way this would work is you would slide this into your front mounted hitch. You can line up your pin holes. You will need a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch pin and lock, those items are sold separately. You can refer this product's product page and the related items to view those or go to our website and type in part number PC3 and it will refer you to this five-eighths inch pin that comes with a clip. One more measurement is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank. That measurement is going to measure about two and seven-eighths of an inch. That's going to complete today's review of part number 6771.

This is the Draw-Tite front mount trailer hitch receiver skid shield. .

Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Skid Shield - 6771

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (9 Customer Reviews)

- 6771

Great protection from being rear ended. Very happy. 270010

- 6771

Serves the purpose of covering the receiver hole, and would deflect a possible pan damaging debris item. On reflecting, I should have just bought a cheap plastic hole cover. 850350

Sticks out a little far. Had to re drill the holes. 844769

Put a front receiver on my 2018 Frontier. Put this skid plate on to protect receiver when banging around off road. Looks better than empty receiver and plate is sturdy. 772116

Looks great 761834

As my front hitch is low to the ground I am using this as a skid plate to protect the hitch and its opening . 642228

Has held up well. Coating has proven good as no rust one year later (as happens far too often with aftermarket parts). Still looks new one year later! 549660

Exactly as described. Durable. Best price I found for this anywhere reliable. 122750

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required to Install a Front Mount Receiver on a 2005 Ford F-150 4x4
    The Curt Front Mount Receiver, item # 31352, has a 9,000 Lbs. Max. Line Pull, and lower fascia trimming may be required on some models. The part that may need to be trimmed is the plastic fascia that is attached to the bottom of the chrome bumper on some models. If this plastic piece is not installed on your vehicle you will not have to trim with the Curt receiver. The Draw-Tite Front Receiver, item # 65043, for your 2005 F-150, has a 9,000 Lbs. Max. Line Pull rating also, so it is...

  • 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...

  • Can the Draw-Tite Front Hitch Receiver for a 2016 Ram 1500 Move 3,000 lb Boat Trailer
    As long as the tongue weight of your 3,000 lb boat trailer doesn't exceed the 500 lb tongue weight rating of the Draw-Tite # 65062 then this will work great for your 2016 Ram 1500. I recommend using a cover like the Draw-Tite QSP # 63080 or Skid Shield # 6771 to help protect the front receiver when not in use. If you use the skid shield then I also recommend using a locking hitch pin like part # e98880 to help deter theft.

  • Will Installing Front Mount Hitch On 2005 Ford F-150 STX 2WD Interfere With Transmission Cooler
    No, installing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65043 or the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 31352 will not interfere with the OEM transmission cooler on your 2005 Ford F-150 STX. The only way that you transmission cooler would be affected is if you had something installed on the front-mount hitch that was directly blocking air flow to the transmission cooler. If you have an aftermarket transmission cooler, part # 65043 interfering with it would depend...
