  • Curt Front Hitch Options for a 2000 Chevy 3500 Truck
    Measure the outsides of the frame rails instead of the insides. The Curt hitch part # 31043 is designed to fit the 2 wheel drive models of the 2000 Chevy 3500 that have a 34 inch frame measure from outside to outside. If you have a 4WD model you instead would want the part # 31042 for a front hitch.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2002 GMC Sierra 3500HD
    For a front hitch that fits your 2002 GMC Sierra 3500HD chassis the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65028 is the correct fit. The # 31043 does not fit your truck.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1989 Chevy C2500 Pickup Truck
    We do have some front mount hitches that fit a 1989 Chevy C2500 pickup but # 65005 only fits the 4-wheel drive models. For a 2-wheel drive we have # 65021. It fits as long as the truck is not a crew cab model and as long as it has 8-lug wheels. We also have Curt front hitch # 31043. It will fit as long as you do not have a cab and chassis model which has a frame width of 34 inches measured from the outside of one frame rail to the outside of the other. I have included links to the...

  • Front Mount Receiver Hitch for a 1999 GMC Sierra 3500
    The 1999 model year was a split year for Chevy/GMC trucks. Some where still the C/K series and some were the new Silverado/Sierra. If a model was a 1999 C/K series then Sierra was available as a trim option. Later that same year they turned all of the trucks into either Silverado or Sierra instead of having those as trim levels of the C/K series. The hitch you tried, # 65028, is designed to fit 1999 GMC Sierra 2500 LD (light duty) models only. As far as a 1999 Sierra 3500 there are no...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 1992 Chevy C1500 Truck
    For your 1992 C1500 pickup truck you would want either the Curt Hitch part # 31042 that you referenced or the Draw Tite Front Hitch part # 65005 that will hang higher than the Curt. The # 31043 is for 2500 and 3500 series C Series trucks so it would not work for you. The # 65005 will require fascia trimming and drilling for installation. Since the Curt hitch hangs lower it would not require that the fascia be trimmed.

  • Correct Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 LS
    The correct front mount trailer hitch for your 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 LS will be dependent on if you have a 2WD or 4WD model. If you have a 2WD then you will want to use the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31043 but if you have a 4WD then you will want to use the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31042. I prefer the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver over the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver because they are made in the USA as opposed...
