Video Transcript for Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, we're going to be installing Curt's Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C31071.This is what our hitch is going to look like when it's installed. As you can see, it's tucked up underneath our front bumper, so you're really only going to be able to see the receiver tube and it's tucked back far enough where you almost don't even notice it's there. It's got a 2" x 2" receiver end, so it'll work with any of your favorite accessories such as winch plates, snow plows, or over-the-bed extenders. It uses a 5/8" hitch pin and clip. One doesn't come included, but you can pick one up here at etrailer.com with part number PC3.It has a 500 pound tongue weight, a 5000 pound gross towing capacity, and a 9000 pound straight line pull. Now to help you when deciding on accessories, I've got a few measurements for you.

From the ground to the top inside of the receiver, it's going to measure about 10-3/4". From the center of the hitch pinhole to the front edge of the front bumper, it's going to measure about 9-1/2".We'll begin our installation at the front of the vehicle. We're going to have to remove a couple bolts that hold our tow hook on. We're going to be using those bolts to secure our front mount hitch. We'll use an 18mm socket and remove the bolt in the front of the frame just below the tow hook.

You'll do that on both sides.Next, we'll take the fish wire provided in the kit. We'll go through the small hole here located just in front of your sway bar, and we're going to bring it back and come out the square opening just above the sway bar. Next, slide a spacer over the coiled end and thread on one of the carriage bolts provided in the kit. Push those into the frame and pull your fish wire back through. Now, we do want to actually poke it just so it's right back in to make it easier to get our hitch into position, and we'll repeat that same process on the other side.Now with an extra set of hands, we'll lift our hitch into position.

Make sure you feed your fish wire through from the inside of the hitch towards the outside. We'll then lift our hitch up into position, use the fish wire to pull the bolts towards the outside, and once you've got both bolts pull out on each side, the hitch will support itself making it easier to install the rest of your hardware.Now, we'll install our bottom bolts first. These are the ones that we had just removed from our tow hooks. Once both of your tow hook bolts are installed, take your fish wire off the carriage bolts that we had slipped through the side, and when you're taking these off, be careful not to push the bolt back into the frame. I like to keep a little pressure on it as I'm removing it and while I'm installing the nut.

Use the nut provided in the kit to thread onto the carriage bolt, and you'll do that on both sides as well.Now tighten and torque all of your hardware to the specifications in your instructions. The carriage bolt nuts you'll tighten with a 19mm socket, and you'll tighten and torque the lower bolts that we're for our tow hooks using an 18mm socket. Now that you got your hardware tightened down, you're ready to hook up your favorite accessories and hit the road. That completes our installation of Curt's Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver on our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.

I installed the hitch yesterday with no issues and it is exactly as advertised. The Curt C31071 is a very clean and sturdy hitch and fits tight up against the air dam without any modifications. I watched the video first which I highly recommend to future customers. The video is well done and the hitch installs exactly as shown. In the video the truck is on a lift and the mechanic (and installation directions) recommend having help. Since I was alone and don't have a lift I drove the front of my truck up on ramps and used my floor jack to lift the hitch into position. Now I realize that I should have taken a picture of this procedure. I plan on using the hitch to mount a cargo rack for large items that I can't carry in my truck camper. 591664

I bought this product to use a bike carrier on the front of my 2015 Sierra 2500. The installation was simple. I think I spent more time watching the installation video than it took for me to install the receiver. I like the fact that I did not have to cut anything on my new truck and I was able to perform the task by myself. I will probably use the front receiver to maneuver my boat trailer into tighter spots. Thank you 225809

Great addition to our truck. Simple installation. Because there is no cutting of bumper fascia, it is a lower hitch than some. That is both a Pro and a Con. Decide if you need a higher hitch first before ordering. Our 2015 GMC 3500HD sits high enough that the application worked great for us..... see the photo. Harry and Harriet Homeowner can install this in their garage without a lift. The final result is excellent on our 2015 GMC 3500HD. 201471

The Curt hitch assembly arrived in excellent condition. As usual, George did a fantastic job of getting my order to me very promptly. The installation went perfectly and exactly as shown in the video on the etrailer.com website. The front hitch fit was perfect on my 2015 GMC Sierra. 225551

Ive driven thousands of miles with my bicycle rack attached to the Curt front receiver. The Curt front receiver has performed perfectly. The best thing is I didnt have to cut or alter my truck to install it.

The Curt Front Mount Hitch is a great addition to any working man's truck. The fit is so tight that I had to bend the side frame tabs out a little bit to get it mounted. Once in place it mounted exactly as described. 167563

I am very pleased with the Curt front mount 2" receiver from etrailer.com. It has a very nice powder coat finish on it and mounted with ease on my 2015 GMC 3500. The purchase and shipping was seamless and Wayne H was extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand and deal with. I would definitely recommend this company and deal with them again. 217601

I really like the front hitch. I use it to haul kayaks when I'm towing my fifth wheel. My only complaint is that it significantly decreases my front end clearance. I now tend to hit ground while going through dips. Other than that, it's been great. 503796

Had the front hitch in use for about a year. No issues...supports a front "cooler" rack that I modified and added a bike roack to the front of that...it performs the way it should....easy install...great produt...happy all around 555090

This product is super easy install (took me less than 20 minutes all by myself). No cutting or drilling required. The product also works great. This makes backing a trailer into a tight spot much easier. The only down fall of this product is that it has to drop down pretty close to the ground to clear the lower air dam on the Sierra 2500HD. The remaining ground clearance leaves the hitch low enough to hit the ground when pulling up to tall curbs or parking blocks and would also likely hit ground fairly easily while four wheeling. The low ground clearance is the only reason I gave this four stars instead of five stars. Please note that to get a front hitch that is no cutting or drilling, there is no other option...it has to be below the air dam. 454465

Bought this before I even had my truck. It installed easily. Holds my 280lb scooter and rack securely. Does lower your front ground clearance though. Make sure to put cover on it to keep the opening clean. Would be nice if etrailer just threw one in with the purchase, hint, hint. 629744

This front hitch carrier has been a life saver for us. I reviewed all the bike mounting options I could find for our truck camper and decided that mounting the bikes on a front receiver hitch was the way to go. The customer service at the front end was excellent. I needed to be sure that the position of the hitch receiver would allow a) enough ground clearance, b) that the bikes would not be touching the front grill of the truck, c) that the bikes would not be sitting up so high that the view of the driver would be obstructed and d) that I would actually be able to do the install myself. Well, the customer service gal on the phone was very helpful and took a lot of time to research and answer all my questions and I felt confident that I was getting the right item. I was able to install the receiver in less than 2 hours with the help of my neighbor. The instructions were clear and the install went fairly smoothly. The end result is an excellent product that is very strong and durable and holds our bike rack perfectly. We have logged over 5000 miles since installing it last spring and I could not be happier with how things have worked out! 607843

Installed on a 2018 Chevy 3500HD (diesel) Product arrived as scheduled in a shipping box that was damaged in transit. Upon inspection of the contents, it was determined everything was fine and all installation parts were securely attached to the hitch. It's understandable that a cardboard box with a 35 pound steel frame will get some damage in handling. Installation: Absolutely watch the video online, it is extremely helpful! I jacked up the front of my truck about 6 inches and set jack stands in place on the jacking blocks behind front wheel wells. I also removed the plastic debris guard (4-15mm bolts) for easier access to the mounting points. I must say, the threaded pull wires are a wonderful addition that made the installation flawless! Take your time and follow the enclosed instructions (and video) and it should take you about 30-45 minutes. I am an average mechanic at best and this was a really easy install! Be aware that adding the hitch up front will require you be careful with parking curbs, however I think the hitch is stout enough to insure it will destroy a concrete curb. Probably best to avoid testing that theory. I test mounted a motorcycle carrier on the from of the truck and loaded up a KTM 690 Duke. (315 lbs) Virtually no sag in the front suspension and to bike should ride well with proper pads & tie-downs. Makes for an interesting hood ornament ;) All in all, a great product and vendor. You can buy with confidence. 600054

Great price. The item was received as promised, in great shape. I installed it by myself with the help of a floor jack to lift the receiver under the truck. It came with all of the needed hardware and fit perfectly. The installation was very easy and took only 30 minutes. This is a great product, and as usual, ETrailer came through as promised. 599930

I searched far and wide for a front hitch for my 2018 GMC 2500 HD Denali, most will not fit the Denali for some reason. This one did so with no trimming of the air dam, it's a perfect fit and only took about 45 minutes to install by myself. This will be the second truck I've owned with a front hitch and it seems like a necessity at this point, they're great for bicycle racks, winches, kayak racks, you name it! 594408

Though fitment as to holes lining up etc. was good. Actual ability to use this hitch as I had hoped, never happened. Standard hitches don’t fit, the receiver sits too far under the truck. The pin holes in the tube are too far back, and the hitch hits the air damn. 592001

Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?


  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver that Doesn't Reduce Ground Clearance for a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately there are no bull bar/grille guard options out there that also utilize a front mount hitch for your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. I believe that you were looking at the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31071 which has a drop so that the receiver sits under the front fascia on your Silverado. Draw-Tite actually offers a front mount receiver as well which does not reduce the ground clearance for your truck. To install the part...

  • Front Hitch Receivers Available for 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali
  • The one front-mount hitch available for your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali is the Curt model # C31071. This offers no-drill installation and the linked video will show you the process and final appearance. There is a Draw-Tite hitch offered # 65078 but this is not a fit for the Denali. If you plan to use a heavy front-mount accessory such as a plow or cargo carrier you might consider a front-axle suspension kit like a set of rubber jounce springs such as # SSF-202-47.

There were enough changes to the 2015 model Silverado that Curt had to redesign a new hitch. The hitch you would then need is the part # C31071.

  • Is Trimming Required to Install a Front Hitch on a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 2500
  • You didn't say what was confusing so to elaborate Curt, the manufacturer of front mount receiver # C31071, says that trimming of the front air dam may be required on the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali. The trimming will need to be around where the receiver will be so it fits properly. You could also just take the air dam off if you wanted to. It did not have to be trimmed on the 3500 in the video I have linked but that truck is not a Denali model. But if it were then that air dam could...

We haven't had anyone complain about the ground clearance but the receiver will be under the front fascia so it is possible that it could make contact with the ground at severe enough inclines.
