This front hitch works well with my rod/cooler rack for surf fishing! I installed myself using the instructions. (Would've been easier with a second person!). It's low profile. I removed the air dam to make it easier for install and gain more ground clearance overall. I have a 2018 Silverado. 706929

Looks like a pretty straight forward install. Freight to Alaska always seems highly prized, so it was no surprise to see that “Free to the contiguous...” didn’t apply. What was surprising, however was this: I placed my order late in the evening - Alaska time. Even later that evening, and not by much, I got a very pleasant email receipt/response that just had to come from another human being. The next morning, I got another email with the writer saying that he’d found an expedited shipping channel, at no additional cost. I placed the order on May 2, i received it today, the 4th. It was intact, as advertised and I fully expect that the installation will be as good and easy as the shipping! Thanks Paul H. Beals, Ester, Alaska 637815

Was glad to receive my box early, however, the one brace on the hitch was 1/2" off and had to be pried out to fit properly...Not an easy task. As far as time installing the hitch, I am not a novice but it took me quite a while to install this. The fishing line kept going up, luckily i had long nosed pliers to pull it into place. All in all I am happy with the hitch. 525863

Product arrived even before I expected it. I found it easy to install . I did it on my garage floor with the use of a floor jack to lift it in position.. P.S. I'm 71 years young so anyone should be able to do this install.. 635862

2014 Chevy Silverado. The hitch arrived in what seemed to be record time. Install was very straightforward. The only issue was the front mounting holes were too small to accept the spacer and bolt. A little time with a die grinder was all it took. Since I was installing alone I used a short pipe clamp to hold the passenger side in place instead of a jack. Install time was 50 minutes. I have a 2" leveling kit on the truck and ended up with 10-1/2" of clearance below the hitch. Overall I'm very pleased with the hitch. My primary use will be to occasionally mount a winch on the front or back as needed. 585595

Love CURT front hitch, bought one from you for old suburban and just put this new one on new Siverado P/U. Only advice I would add for people is to start with drilling smaller pilot hole than bigger and finally with specified 17/32" bit to make it easier drilling while laying on driveway under truck. I also used a 5/8" bit because I had one and all worked out fine. Now we can put the bike rack on front and camper on back. 358115

This is the 2nd Front Hitch that I have purchased through eTrailer, made by Curt. My first was for my 2004 GMC Sierra. After several years pushing a driveway plow and launching & precisely parking boats,....I decided to buy a new 2016 Silverado. The 2004 Hitch mounted with only 2 bolts on each side. There was clever use of the tow hook bolt & an open access hole. No holes needed to be drilled. I bent the plow rack & bent a hitch extender over the years but never compromised the hitch. I'm going to give this hitch to my brother for his 2015 Silverado 2500 for a front winch mount. The 2016 Hitch used an access hole on each side and required me to drill 2 more holes on each side. This hitch is just as strong as the rear hitch,....probably stronger! The instructions suggested that I trim the airdam,....didn't have to. I pulled out one screw and bent the airdam over a little. The other brand offered by eTrailer was recognizable, but not as well designed & made as the Curt. Next truck I buy,...I'll be back to eTrailer for another Curt Hitch! Oh,...incidentally; the website, ordering, delivery, packaging, instructions were all GREAT!,....and like most busy people, I don't have time to give this feedback, but eTrailer's Bill P. asked kindly & deserves it. 311870

Little bit of difficulty on the install (drilling into frame, cutting out plastic guard) but when all was said and done it looks great and more importantly performed just as I needed for my snowplow attachment. No issues! Will return for any other truck needs. Thanks! 729735

Installation went smooth. I can now put on and take off my plow mount easily and quickly. Great product 724745

Very easy installation (1 hour) with no problems. The air dam only required a vertical 3/4" cut to fit. I only cut the sides and let the tongue push the plastic upwards. The wire used to snake the nuts and washer bar into the frame is ingenious. All four fell into place on the first try. 634626

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Great product, well built. went in just like the instructions said, though one must be very careful when positioning the hitch over the bolts coming down from the holes in the frame that are drilled. One bolt ended up being pushed up into the frame member and took 1+ hour to retrieve. Use the fish wires to extend from the bolts so if one (or more) ends up being pushed up passed the hole opening, it will be easy to retrieve! Once in though, looked great and didn't even have to cut any of the "fascia" to fit the receiver. 597654

The fast shipping and service was GREAT, I am going to modify the receiver for my needs, and will post a review when done. 575718


Comments

The modified receiver works great. I removed receiver tube from the center, then added two new tubes at either end, this made the cooler rack 100 wobble free. I can still use the front mount receiver to jockey my boat around in tight spaces. Id give it 5 stars.

Installed this on a 2014 Silverado 1500. Very easy install with two people for an extra set of hands to hold hitch up while marking drill holes and tightening the first 2 nuts to hold the hitch to the frame. I had previously installed a 2" front end leveling kit on the truck so the ground clearance difference is barely noticeable. I would recommend this hitch to anyone looking to put this on a similar truck. 547713

Very easy to install.took about 30min. You only loose about 1.3" of ground clearance.when I installed after drilling holes and pre-fit I removed and painted holes so bare metal is not exposed to cause rust. Etrailer was great to buy from.. 223137

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Best Ground Clearance Front Hitch 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The front mounted hitch receiver that will provide you the most amount of ground clearance on your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the Curt Custom Fit 2 Inch Hitch, # C31069. This hitch measures 9.52 inches from the frame mounting flange to the bottom of the hitch receiver opening. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 65064, that you mentioned reduces ground clearance just a hair more at 9.62 inches. I have included a link to the hitch installation instructions for you.

  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31069 provides the most ground clearance out of the three available for your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500. To give you a better idea of how low each hitch would sit once bolted to your frame I have attached photos showing the distance from the frame brackets to the bottom of the hitch receiver for each of the following three hitches: # C31069 - 9.5 inches # 65064 - 9.62 inches # C31012 - 10.9 inches

This hitch offers no-drill installation unlike the other options from Curt, parts # C31069 and # C31012, but some plastic fascia trimming is often required to make room for the receiver tube.

  • Hidden Front Mount Hitch Options for a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500
  • We have exactly what you are looking for! If your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 is a Z71 then you want the Curt # C31069 but if it isn't you will use the Curt # C31012 instead. Both of these options mount in such a way that just the 2" receiver is showing under the front of your pickup. I have attached the written instructions for you to reference. You may also be interested in the Skid Shield # C31007 for when you aren't utilizing the front receiver.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 Texas Edition
  • I checked with Curt and they do list # C31069 as a fit for all models of the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500. But they also show # C31012 as a fit. We also have Draw-Tite front hitch # 65064 as a fit for your truck. What I recommend is to look over the instructions for each, linked below, and compare them to the truck.

  • Snow Plows and Mount Options for a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500
  • I do have plow options for you but I spoke with my contact over at Snow Bear and they have not yet confirmed a custom snow plow mount kit for the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 (March 1, 2017). What you can do is use a plow that attaches to a front mount trailer, # C31069, which does fit your truck. With the front mount hitch installed you could then use Snow Bear plow # SB324-082, # SB324-172, # SB324-081, # SB324-080, # SB324-168, or # SB324-140.

  • Recommended Snowplow to Use on a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for a Personal Driveway
  • For your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, I recommend using the Detail K2 Avalanche Snowplow part # K2AVAL8219 with the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31069 in order to plow your 800' long lane. The Avalanche Snowplow is 82" wide x 19" tall. It has an electric winch so you can make all of your adjustments in-cab, adjustable blade for precision plowing, and a rubber deflector on top which diverts snow away from your windshield. The other thing I like about this plow is that...

  • Comparing Curt Front Mounted Hitches for 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The biggest difference between the # C31012 and the # C31069 (both of which are confirmed to fit your 2018 Silverado 1500) is ground clearance. The Curt # C31069 will hang down 6-3/4 inches from the mounting surface and the # C31012 will hang down 8-3/16 inches. They will mount in the same location and both will require trimming the front air dam.

  • Differences Between Curt Front Hitches for a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
  • Either Curt Front Hitch part # C31069 or # C31012 will fit your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500. I confirmed this with Curt. The biggest difference between the two is that the # C31069 will hang down 6-3/4 inches from the mounting surface (truck frame), and the # C31012 will hang down 8-3/16 inches.

  • Do Curt Front Hitches 31012 and 31069 Install Same and Have Same Ground Clearance
  • The Curt front hitch part # C31069 that you are interested in would install in the same frame holes on your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 as the front hitch part # C31012 that you weren't happy with. From the mounting surface to the bottom of the hitch tube on the # C31069 measures 9.52 inches. This should give you slightly better ground clearance than the Curt you already tried.

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver that Does Not Require Drilling for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65064 mounts to different locations on the 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 than Curt hitch # C31012 or # C31069. I have included links to the installation instructions so you can see how each one installs. I am of the opinion that no drilling is the much better option then one that requires drilling. Drilling into a vehicle frame isn't easy because the frame is so strong. So avoiding that is a good thing! That is why if it were my truck I would choose # 65064.

  • Comparing Curt Front Mount Hitch Receivers for a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500
  • Curt front mount hitches # C31069 and # C31012 are nearly identical with the exception of what all each will fit. The newer C31069 is designed just for trucks whereas the C31012 also fits some GM SUVs such as the Yukon and Escalade. But as far as how they will fit on your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 they will be the same. I have linked instructions for both. Both require front fascia/air dam trimming so the bottom of the receiver will sit about 1 inch lower than the bottom of the fascia/air dam.

  • Is Fascia Trimming Required to Install Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch on 2014 GMC Sierra
  • You may have to trim the fascia on your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 to install the Curt front mount trailer hitch # C31069, depending on how the front bumper is mounted to the frame. This varies with each individual vehicle. The best way to determine if trimming is required is to raise the hitch into position. If needed, mark and trim the lower fascia or remove lower fascia.

You will need to measure from the mounting point on your vehicle down 6-3/4 inches to determine where the hitch opening will be. For more install info check out the install instructions I attached.

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch for 2015 Chevy Silverado for Snowsport Snow Plow
  • I'd recommend using the Curt # C31069 front mounted hitch for your Snowsport Plow, because of the improved ground clearance it offers compared to the Curt # C31012. This being said, in order for your Snowsport plow to work correctly, the bottom of the receiver tube needs to be within 8-16 inches of the ground. I'd recommend you take a measurement from the bottom of the front frame member to ensure the receive will be at the correct height. Measure down from the underside of the frame...

  • Is There Drilling Required to Install Curt Front Hitch on 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • There is drilling required to install the Curt hitch part # C31069 that you referenced on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500. If you check out the instructions link I attached you'll see just how much drilling. It's only two holes per frame channel on either side.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for Ground Clearance for 2017 GMC Sierra 1500
  • All of the front hitches we offer for your 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 are going to install below the front bumper. The Curt part # C31069 will have the best ground clearance as it sits the highest and the hitch opening hangs down below the crosstube of the hitch unlike the Draw Tite. I attached a picture that shows the Curt hitch when it's installed and the area of the air dam that gets trimmed.

  • Comparing Curt Front Mount Hitches For 2016 GMC Sierra 4-Wheel Drive
  • Both of the Curt hitches are designed to fit your 2016 sierra 1500. I checked the installation instructions for part # C31069 and part # C31012, and the instructions say to lift the hitch up into place to determine if the lower fascia needs to be trimmed. They are both listed with the same line pull of 9,000 lbs and have 2 inch receiver opening. Since they are both nearly identical in design I recommend going with the # C31069.

This particular hitch is designed for earlier models of the Sierra 1500 (2008-2013) and will not fit with the frame on your 2015 model. If you have the Sierra 1500, I instead recommend the Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31069. This hitch is confirmed to fit your truck and it features a simple, bolt-on installation. It has a line pull rating...
