My front hitch for my 2008 Tacoma got to me within 3 days very fast service. I installed it in 30 minutes and was able to put the front skid plate back on without doing any other changes to it. Very good product. I will be using it to put my rod rack on front of truck to use it at the outer banks of North Carolina for surf fishing this coming fall. Thanks for a very good hitch. 212903


The hitch has worked really well for me. My rod rack that I use hitch for was esay to install and remove. Very good product.

All Hardware was present. Electric Harness installation went well after I had difficulty separating stock plug for harness plug in. Removed Bumper for more room to view. I suggest a helper to position assembly up in place. I was going to use a floor hydraulic jack to get er done. A friend just came by. Had to purchase a 19mm box/open end wrench to tighten 2 bolts. Deep sockets will not get in there. Now for the front hitch. Cheers dlj 67095

Did you have to modify the skid plate in anyway for the skid plate reinstall?

Although I stumbled a bit with the orientation of the components at first once I realized which holes I should use in the chassis the installation went perfectly. The components are obviously of high quality and it works just as advertised. Could not possibly be happier. 212763

Great front hitch. Took about 35 minutes to install on 2012 Toyota Tacoma with just a few wrenches. The hardest part was getting the plastic hole plugs out of the holes to use to mount the hitch to the frame. 160526

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

  • Removing Skid Shield to Install Front Mounted Receiver on 2014 Toyota Tacoma
  • To retain the skid shield, you'll want to go with the Draw-Tite # 65070. In order to install the Curt # 31313 front hitch on your 2014 Toyota Tacoma, the bumper beam end caps and the front skid shield would need to be permanently removed. For the 2006 and earlier model year, the skid shield could be replaced without modification. We've received comments from folks who installed the Curt front hitch on newer 2014 Tacomas and were able to retain the skid shield by modifying it, but I have...

  • Ground Clearance After Installation of Draw-Tite Front-Mount Hitch 65070 on 2012 Toyota Tacoma
  • Draw-Tite front-mount hitch # 65070 is a confirmed fit on your 2012 Toyota Tacoma 4WD. We have not had a chance to install this particular item nor the Curt equivalent # 31313 on your same truck so for purposes of seeing the effect on your ground clearance I refer you to the linked photo sent to us by a customer that installed this hitch. The bottom of the receiver tube will be approximately 4-inches below the bottom of the front bumper cover.

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • If it were me, I would go with the Draw-Tite front mounted hitch # 65070 over the Curt front mount hitch # 31313 for your 2015 Toyota Tacoma. We have just had better luck with the Draw-Tite brand and for the increased vertical pull, if you ever decide to use it for another purpose plus the lower cost the Draw-Tite is pretty hard to pass up in my opinion. I have linked both front mount hitches to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.

  • Parts Needed for Transporting 2 14-Foot Kayaks on 2010 Toyota Tacoma with Factory Roof Rack
  • We can get you set for hauling your two 14-foot kayaks on your Tacoma. A hitch-mounted load support system like the Darby # DTA944 is the way to go. Since you already have a roof rack on the truck's cab you'll simply insert the extender into a 2-inch hitch, either a rear-mounted hitch or a front-mounted one like # 31313. If you need tie-down straps to secure the kayaks you might consider 4-piece ratcheting strap set # EM31352 from Erickson. You can also add two of the Darby Foam...

  • Front Mount Receiver Trailer Hitch for a 2010 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Curt front mount receiver, # 31313, is a front mount receiver. You can also call it a trailer hitch even though it is at the front of the vehicle and not the back. As far as installation notes for this hitch, I show that no drilling is required or cutting of anything at the front of the truck for installation. The only modification is that the bumper end caps will have to be removed. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. We have not yet had the chance to...

  • Removing the Skid Plate to Install Curt Front Mount Reciever 31313 on a 2008 Toyota Tacoma TRD
  • On each end on the bumper of your 2008 Toyota Tacoma there is a little plastic cap that covers a bolt. These caps are removed to loosen the bolts for installation of the Curt Front Hitch, # 31313. You are correct that the front skid plate will have to be removed as well. I have included a link to the instructions below.

  • Can Curt # 31313 Front Mount Receiver Be Used on Rear of 2010 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Curt # 31313 is a fit for the front of a 2005-2014 Toyota Tacoma only and would not fit the rear of the vehicle. For a rear receiver, I would recommend the Curt Class III receiver, part # 13323. If you would care to see an install video of the # 13323 receiver hitch being installed on a 2010 Tacoma, please click the provided link.

  • Installation of a Front Mount Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Toyota tacoma
  • The Curt Front Hitch for the 2010 Toyota Tacoma, item # 31313, is the correct front mount trailer hitch for your 2010 Toyota Tacoma. The reference to removing the front skid plate on 2007 and newer models is a requirement for installing the hitch and the skid plate will not be reinstalled. When installed the receiver will be bellow the front bumper. A couple of handy accessories you might want to consider with the front receiver hitch are the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate,...

  • Installing a Front Mount Hitch on a 2008 Toyota Tacoma
  • I read through the instructions for this front mount, linked below, and you do not have to remove the OEM tow hooks. Provided the bumper cover and trim is the factory or OEM body, you will not have to cut, trim or remove any of the fascia.

  • Does Skid Shield have to be Removed to Install Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch on 2011 Toyota Tacoma
  • The skid shield may need to be removed to install Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31313. It might also be possible to trim it. The instructions do not mention the skid plate at all, see link to the right. You should not drill into or weld to the hitch so if the lights can attach another way then it is possible to secure them to the hitch. Take a look at the picture of the hitch installed that I have included to get an idea of how much space there is after installation.

  • Is Skid Plate Removal Required to Install the Curt Front Hitch part # 31313
  • You should be able to reinstall your skid plate after installing the Curt Front Hitch # 31313. On the older models (prior to 2007) the skid plate isn't required to be removed. The newer ones after 2007 do require the removal of it, but we had a customer with a 2012 model write us a review where he said he was able to reinstall his skid plate. Without knowing what year your vehicle is it's hard for me to give you a more specific answer than that.

  • Replacement Installation Hardware for Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch 31313
  • Yes, you can get just the installation hardware for Curt front hitch receiver # 31313. You will need # RHK (picture does not represent actual hardware). On the RHK page you will enter the hitch number in the box and then select the manufacturer from the drop down menu, in this case Curt, and the proper hardware kit will be assembled.

  • Front Mount Receiver Mounting Hole Spacing for Curt Hitch 31367
  • It sounds like you might want to use Curt front mount hitch # 31367 on a vehicle it was not designed for. Please note that doing so will void the hitch warranty and can also require major modifications done to the vehicle to get it to fit. This hitch is designed for the 2007 to 2009 Toyota 4Runner, 2007 to 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser, and 2010 to 2013 Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition only. It will not fit any other vehicles.

  • Will Curt Front Trailer Hitch 31313 Fit a Base Model 2-Wheel Drive 2007 Toyota Tacoma
  • Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31313 fits all models of the 2007 Toyota Tacoma. There should not be any interference with any of the truck components since the hitch sits out in front of the ends of the frame and in front of the bumper beam as shown in the instructions I have linked for you. Even though it isn't much fun, try not to accelerate into any ditches! You may also be interested in the winch mount # C31010. I have linked a video on the mount and a picture showing the winch...

  • Curt Front Hitch for the 2009 Toyota Tacoma Capacity
  • The Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31313 being able to accommodate your dirt bike will really depend on the weight of the bike. There are also a variety of factors that go into carrying something of that size in front of your vehicle. Many of the motorcycle/dirt bike carriers that we sell are recommend to be used with a trailer hitch that has a max tongue weight of greater than 500 pounds. The only one that allows use with a lower rated hitch is the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201....

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch that Keeps Skid Plate on a 2014 Toyota Tacoma
  • Installation of the Curt front mount receiver # 31313 for your 2014 Toyota Tacoma requires permanent removal of the front skid plate. But installation of the Draw-Tite hitch # 65070 allows you to reinstall the skid plate after the hitch has been installed. Since you want to keep the skid plate I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch. But looking at your picture it appears that you may end up having to trim the skid shield around the receiver.
