Easily attach a variety of accessories to the front of your vehicle with this fully welded, corrosion-resistant trailer hitch receiver. Perfect for winches, spare tire carriers and more.


It wasn't hard to install, instead of the wire I used two pen sized telescoping magnets to wriggle them in the square holed plates. My plans are to use this hitch in place of tow hooks. Good looks and sturdy!


I didn’t know how much I would need this until I moved into my new house just yesterday. The garage door is much shorter at our new house, 7 foot vs. 9 feet. Using the front hitch and a 5 1/2 drop hitch, I have about two inches of clearance when putting my boat in our new garage. Without the front hitch I would have been able to get the boat in the garage. Not to mention how much more the trailer is to steering inputs, the garage is much narrower that our old one. If you have a tight spot to park something this will make your life much easier! Installation was simple and instructions well written. The tool to install the mounting bolts is a brilliant idea.



Better than expected. I didn’t need it when I first bought it, but we moved shortly after I installed the hitch. I left a 9 foot garage door on a detached garage. With a 5 in hitch my boat clears a 7 foot garage door. It will not low enough off the rear receiver.


I am very happy with the product. Went on easy fit great. Looks very well made.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

Received the item a day before it was scheduled for delivery. Package well and was a good price!


It’s a excellent hitch ,Website was easy to order and hitch came in early pkg. of hitch was very good
Hitch fit perfectly
And appreciate the updates on delivery and after delivery follow up
Will def. Be using this company again


I like my front hitch.
Pros: easy to
moderate ease of install.
Comes with all the hardware.
I have tested it using a winch on the front to move a 62 Lincoln continental, No problems.

Con: My truck is a stock dodge 4x4. My point being is it is not raised, but higher than typical dodges. I had to buy a front hitch guard because the hitch kept hitting the concrete parking barriers when you park. So if you are going to drive off road, keep in mind this hitch may hit.

If I sold my truck I would want to pull this part off if there was a way to put it on a new truck.

Gary G.


Works great, holds the winch in place and allows me to pull out cars or trees from easier to reach positions.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

Easy ordering, quick delivery, relatively simple installation. Took a couple of hours from start to finish and worked perfectly to back my camper/trailer into a tight space.

Ken S.


Still loving it George, thanks for asking! Recommend it to all who ask about it.


Having a front trailer hitch on my truck is great. Now I can pull my camper with the rear hitch & put my bicycle carrier on the front hitch. Have not tried moving my boat or camper with the front hitch yet, but I know it will be great for putting either one in to a tight spot.


The service I received from etrailer was outstanding; the customer service rep that helped me with my order was super friendly and very helpful with all my questions and concerns and processed my order on the spot. I had my shipping confirmation right after I placed my order and received my hitch in 2 days from start of my order... The only issue I had was from the maker of the hitch I purchased, the wire they give you to fish the bolts was too short from my access point on the frame of the truck but with a little extension added on the wire given to me allowed me to installed the hitch with no problems... etrailer in my book is A+++ and I will buy all my truck and hitch needs from this awesome internet store.. Thank You again etrailer for a super smooth transaction with my purchase.


Front hitch was fairly easy to install. Instructions easy to follow only complaint was wire for fishing bolts thru frame broke while pulling 2nd bolt thru. Had to make one from wire I had. Hitch works great for my needs.


we hooked it up today thursday march 20 2014. the hitch was very easy to install. we then hooked up a receiver with a winch mounted to it. we then hook the cable from winch to a tree to test the trailer hitch and the winch and receiver all at once it all worked great.can't wait to test it all out four wheeling. my friends will see it soon and they all want the same hook up.

2007 Dodge Ram-Pickup

Received my hitch promptly and installation went fairly easy The only problem I had was that the fish wire tool was to short for the front two holes on both sides. I was able to attach a coat hanger to it to extend the reach and complete the job
The video was very helpful in positioning the hitch
All and all I am very pleased with this hitch.

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great company to deal with and the hitch fits perfect as did the last one I bought from etrailer.I mounted this front hitch on my 2004 Dodge Ram 4X4 and it didn't requirer cutting out the center of the spoiler.took about 35 minutes.Delivery was very fast and I am completely satisfied.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

I had ordered a similar hitch from Amazon weeks before receiving it damaged three different times. Three is a charm and I started searching elsewhere when I found you guy's, The product arrived undamaged. Though I've not installed it yet I believe it will be a whole lot easier due to the wonderful installation video you sent me. I will tell you the video was a selling point for me. Thank you for the great service, product and the video.

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Item is perfect...I installed it by myself in about 45 minutes on my 2004 Dodge Ram...No need to drill holes as they are already there, and didn't need to trim the air dam below :O)...the fish wire was great!!! easier to fish the bolt etc from the mounting holes straight up through the frame than trying to go all the way to the access hole though...

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Very high quality. Very easy to install. Does not take away any ground clearance. On the 2004 Ram, no drilling and no cutting fascia. I will use mine mainly for carrying bicycles while towing our travel trailer.


Install took about 25 minutes. It took longer to cut up the box it came in. The holes lined up perfectly and other than a 2" square it is almost invisible. Great product...



This hitch is perfect for moving the jet skiis to the back yard through a narrow fence and bringing the snowmobiles to the front for winter. Much easier than trying to back them in. Going to get a Snopro plow, which was the first thought for this hitch.


i recieved it in a very short shipping time, it was correct hitch,easy installation. great public relations with e trailer. highly recomend this co. and product. thanks


Great hitch and makes positioning my travel trailer on a long and narrow driveway so easier!

Dodge Ram Pickup

Hitch fit my dodge ram perfect... no drilling and all the hardware came with it. Only took 20 minutes by myself to mount.. great product... thx


One of the best hitches on the market after 1 year of use still looks like new . I'm am planing on buying another truck and I will be buying from you again. Thank you for such a great product.


Like most everything we’ve bought here this worked well and was a good value.

The installation was only similar to the instructions but worked out well in about and hour start to finish. The wire to snake the bolts into place is clever.


Fast delivery and excellent fit, easy to install with included instructions. Outstanding quality also!


The product is great. Unfortunately, one came with my snowsport plow, so I have an extra. I was able to easily install.

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

Received the hitch very quickly. Installed it in ~45 minutes. Exact fit on my 2005 RAM 1500.

Chris 2.


Doing fine. No complaints.

  • Is Drilling Safe for Installing Curt Front Hitch on 2007 Dodge Ram 1500
    The Curt hitch part # 31320 attaches to the frame of your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500. The frame of a vehicle would not be a "crumple zone" and this hitch has been tested on your vehicle to be safe. The front end part of a vehicle that is designed to crumple in accidents is the bumper not the frame.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500
    The Curt Front Hitch part # 31320 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 so I would recommend it for you. The 2006 Ram in the attached video is the same generation as yours so the install will be the same.

  • Can Curt Front Mount Hitch Receiver Be Installed Upside Down?
    The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 31320 is not designed to be installed upside down. The hitch may or may not need to be modified for that, but the frame would required drilling for that and the warranty from the manufacturer would not cover that use as it hasn't been tested for load under that use. I can't recommend it.

  • Width and Bolt Hole Spacing Side to Side for Curt Front Mount Receiver 31320
    I went out to the warehouse to measure Curt front mount receiver # 31320 for you. The overall width is 35-5/8 inches. The bolt holes side to side are space 33-3/4 inches apart on center. The side brackets where the bolt holes are on the hitch are 2-1/4 inches wide.

  • Installing Curt Front Mounted Receiver # 31320 on 2006 Dodge 2500 4x4
    I spoke with my contact in the engineering department at Curt Manufacturing, who tells me that most, but not all 2006 Ram 2500 models had the access hole in the frame as shown in the instructions. If the front of the frame member allows enough room to pull the bolt and spacer through, you can go that route. Otherwise, you can use a 1-1/4 inch hole saw to make an access hole in the frame as shown in the instructions. I have linked you to the installation instructions as well as to an install...

  • Is Front Mount Trailer Hitch for 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup Available That Extends Through Front Bumper
    We offer one front-mounted trailer hitch for your 2007 Ram 1500. It is the Curt, part # 31320. The installation for this hitch does not go through the bumper as you requested. It does mount with the receiver opening below the bumper. Per the instructions the front fascia or air dam may need to be trimmed to allow clearance for the hitch. I am not aware of any front trailer hitches that install through the bumper as you mentioned.

  • Front Mount Tow Hitch Receiver for a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 that Does Not Require Fascia Trimming
    Curt front mount hitch # 31320 is a confirmed fit for your 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. There is no trimming indicated in the instructions, linked to the right, for a 2004 model, just 2006 and later models. I have included a link to a video showing installation on a 2006 model so you can ignore any trimming parts. Everything else should be exactly the same on your 2004.

  • Ground Clearance of the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
    I just spoke with my rep from Horizon Global about the The Draw-tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" item # 65033. Due to varying tire sizes, trims, and after market suspensions like yours, they do not offer the measurements of how far off the ground that front mount hitch is on a stock 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. He told me the best way to determine the hitch height for your specific vehicle is to measure from the bottom of your frame to the ground and subtract 10 1/2". Whatever...

  • Using Roadmaster Falcon 2 Towbar with 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with Front Winch Installed
    The Curt Front Mount 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 31320, cannot be used to flat-tow your Ram Pickup. You can flat-tow your vehicle (provided it is not the SRT-10) with base plates, such as the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit for 2005 Ram Pickup, part # 260-1. This base plate is compatible with all Roadmaster towbars. Your Ram 1500 should be able to have both the front-mount hitch, # 31320, and the tow bar base plates, # 260-1, installed simultaneously since they mount to different...

  • Will Westin Grille Guard for 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad 4WD # 45-1950 Work With Tow Hooks Front Hitch
    My contact at Westin confirms that installation of their Sportsman Grille Guard for the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD Quad Cab, part # 45-1950, requires removal of the factory tow hooks. Both items cannot be installed at the same time. I see that you purchased a Curt front-mount hitch for your Dodge Ram 1500 from etrailer back in September of 2011; that part number is # 31320.

  • Is the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Compatible with Westin E-Series Bull Bar on a 2008 Dodge Ram
    It is sometimes possible to have both a Bull Bar and a front mount trailer hitch installed at the same time on a vehicle. The problem is that in the majority of vehicles, both parts require at least some of the same mounting locations so they would interfere with one another. What you will need to do is take a look at the isntructions for the front mount hitch that I have linked to see where it mounts and compare that to the mounting locations used by the Bull Bar to determine compatibility....

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch for a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500
    I do have front mount trailer hitch options for a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 like the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31320 which is what I recommend but none of them mount inside the front bumper like you see on the earlier models. The reduction in ground clearance is very minimal but there is not a workaround for this. For a winch mount, the Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate with Handles part # BDW20011 is what I recommend.
