Curtis "Front Mount Trailer Hitch" ordered for 2017 Nissan Frontier (Crew Cab-4x4). Excellent product quality, quick delivery, and follow up customer service. Hitch as advertised. As several other reviewers have mentioned, the front mount trailer hitch holes do not line up exactly with the truck frame holes so a bit of manhandling is required to get the bolts installed properly. I needed to be able to push my boat/trailer up my driveway, around a corner, and into the garage. Works better than I expected; very satisfied. 400079

I got this Class II front hitch for my 2016 Nissan Frontier to help me back a small trailer into a tight space. It arrived in good condition with complete instructions and good quality hardware. When I tried to bolt the hitch on, I found the 1/4" plate brackets were 3/8" too narrow to match up with the holes in the Frontier's frame. Michelle at ETrailer gave me some good advice on how to spread the brackets with a hydraulic jack and bingo, the hitch fits and looks great! BTW, the ground clearance is still around 9 1/2". 318144

I have bought and installed 13 trailer hitches for myself and 3 for friends. Most of them were rear hitches but at least 3 were front hitches. I think they all came from E-trailer. Every one was a snap to install except this one which was a nightmare. I have a car lift in my high ceiling garage so getting under the vehicle is not a problem. The distance between the mounts were too close so the washers supplied would not fit between the sholder and the holes and the bolts supplied were not long enough. After much frustration I ground the washers flat on one side and used bolts 1/2 " longer and was able to mount the hitch. 16735

The distance between the flange bolt holes was too short. I had to use a hydraulic jack and 2 X 4's to spread the flanges to obtain the proper distance. It's on and looks great. I am glad I didn't have to drill our any holes. 174635

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. 335374

I can't believe how fast this came. The product is extremely sturdy, actually much more than needed. I had a mechanic install the tow bar on the front of my Pathfinder. It took him maybe a half hour. It is pretty much hidden, which is what I wanted. It does decrease ground clearance, but I don't think this will be a problem for me. I haven't attached anything yet, but it appears extremely strong and solid. It is quite heavy, which I didn't expect. It bolted on without problem. 202597

The hitch seems to be a good one, but I did have a little trouble with installation. I had to grind a couple of the holes out to be able to bolt it in. 105629

Good finish and appearance. Sturdy. Didn't fit though. Had to use a Hi-lift jack to spread mounts to get it to fit. 103342


Ask the Experts about this Curt Front Hitch
Do you have a question about this Front Hitch?

  • Does Front Air Damn have to be Permanently Removed to Install Font Receiver on 2016 Nissan Frontier
  • Yes, you will need to permanently remove the front air dam on the 2016 Nissan Frontier in order to install either of the front mount hitches available for it; # 65075 or # 31241. In my opinion having to remove it rather than having to trim it is better because at least you still have the intact part should you ever need to put it back on.

  • Can a Front Mount Trailer Hitch and Westin Bull Bar be Installed Together on 2012 Nissan Frontier
  • The Curt front mount receiver # 31241 and the bull bars available for your 2012 Nissan Frontier install on the bottom of the truck frame in the same location. You can have one installed at a time. The hitch attaches directly to the bottom of the frame and the bull bars have brackets that attach to the bottoms of the frame. While it is possible that the bull bar brackets can be sandwiched between the frame and the hitch, or the hitch between the brackets and the frame, the products are...

  • Front-Mount Hitches for 2012 Nissan Frontier
  • The two front-mount hitches we have for your 2012 Nissan Frontier, Draw-Tite # 65075 and Curt # 31241, both mount to the same points on the Frontier's frame and the bottom of the receiver tubes on both will be approximately 7-inches below the top of the mounting brackets. I measured both hitches in our warehouse to see if one offers more clearance than the other; they are virtually identical in this respect. Between the two I suggest the Draw-Tite since it has a higher vertical load rating...

  • Are there Front and Rear Mounted Trailer Hitches for a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4
  • Rear mounted hitches are not available for the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder because it is supposed to have come with one from the factory. The best place to look for a replacement rear mount hitch for your vehicle would be through a dealership. But for a front mount I can help you with that, no problem. We have the Curt front mount hitch # 31241 that you have referenced that will fit your Pathfinder. This hitch is rated for 350 pounds vertical load. So anything you load on in the front...

  • Front Hitch and Plow Recommendation for 2016 Nissan Frontier
  • The plow that will work best for you is the Agri-Cover SnowSport HD part # A40000HD. This very simple designed plow is ideal for your situation. It will move snow with ease but instead of picking up dirt or gravel it simply slides up on it's track and over anything that causes resistance. It's a very cool design. No more winches or manual adjustments. For a front hitch for your 2016 Nissan Frontier you would want the part # 31241. Check out the review video I attached for the plow...

  • Will Adding Front Hitch Make Changing Oil Harder on 2013 Nissan Frontier
  • Adding front mount hitch # 31241 could potentially make it more difficult to change the oil on your 2013 Nissan Frontier but none of our customers have mentioned having difficulties. To install this hitch the air dam has to come off the truck so it might actually make changing the oil easier. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

  • Availability of Front Mounted Hitch for 2009 Toyota 4Runner
  • We do indeed offer a front mounted receiver. The Curt Front Mount Receiver, part # 31367 would be a fit for your 2009 4Runner. I've linked you to a video showing the hitch being installed on a FJ Cruiser. The procedure on your 4Runner would be identical. The Curt # 31241 hitch you referred to is a front mounted receiver for a Nissan Pathfinder or Frontier, and wouldn't fit your 4Runner.

  • Does Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 31241 Require Cutting the Bumper on 2014 Frontier
  • The front-mount trailer hitch receiver you referenced, Curt # 31241, is a fit for specific Nissan and Suzuki vehicles including your 2014 Frontier. No drilling is required but the air dam (lower fascia) and tow hooks must be permanently removed for hitch installation. No cutting is needed either. You will need a torque wrench to secure the fasteners to the specified rating as indicated in the written instructions from Curt which are linked for you at right.

  • Curt Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Nissan Frontier
  • The only way the Curt Front Hitch part # 31241 that you referenced can be installed on a vehicle like your 2011 Nissan Frontier would be with it attaching to the bottom of your vehicle frame. The mounting flange wouldn't be wide enough to make it around the frame, and there are no weldnuts on top of the frame either.

  • How Much Ground Clearance Will there Be with Curt Front Hitch Installed on a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Once installed the Curt front receiver # 31241 will be directly below the front fascia on your 2005 Nissan Pathfinder, see diagram. It will hand down from that point approximately 2-1/2 inches. So measure from the ground to the bottom of the front fascia and subtract 2-1/2 inches to get a good approximation of ground clearance.

For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.
