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 was a great price to solve my problem of how to take my bike camping when I’m pulling my teardrop trailer.

Installation wasn’t that difficult with the exception of the top bolt on the drivers side. The brake booster pump was in the way. Keep trying and you’ll get it in eventually. It took me about an hour to install.

2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

What can I say that you haven't already heard? made this such a painless and straight forward process for selecting the front hitch for my 2015 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited that I can't believe I didn't do it sooner.

The Curt front hitch for my jeep arrived quickly and in great shape, very well packed. On unpacking I found my hardware and instruction firmly secured to it so it didn't get mixed up with my rear hitch, good forward thinking.

The hitch is robustly built and you can see the care that goes into the quality, all the welds are neat and tidy and the finish is excellent. The hardware is all coated for long lasting performance and the fish wire is beyond handy.

For the installation of the front hitch the instructions are a little lacking. This is not to say bad or confusing, just lacking a little more how to. The etrailer video on installing it made the process go smooth and easy. On my Rubicon model you do have to fight with the sway bar motor on the passenger side and the vacuum unit on the driver side, it is a pain but if you take the top frame trim off it is much easier to work. The bolt hole on the drivers side, pass a drill through it to make sure the ft is right because its very tight to work in that area and close won't work. Other than that, it installs exactly like the video. The only thing that would complete the package would be a template for clipping the front plastic shield, the Curt instructions include a sketch that gives you an idea but a simple temporary adhesive template would make it super simple to drill the corners out and then connect the dots with a tool of choice. But hey, that's just me.

The hitch tucks up real nice and doesn't kill approach angle or ground clearance which is great for my application as its for carrying a winch when I need it. I would recommend without hesitation and strongly urge the Curt line of products based on what I've seen so far.


I do a lot of online ordering and these people are the best delivered way before I expected and consistently checked to make sure everything was great.... I cannot wait to get my hitch on the front of my Jeep so that I can plow snow this winter I'm so excited with this company


Fit like a glove and installation was quick and smooth. Delivery was well within reason considering item not in stock. Extremely pleased with and staff kept me informed on shipping.

Jeep Wrangler

The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch 31432 for the Jeep Wrangler is well designed and built. It has excellent fit so no shims or spacers are needed. Your videos and customer comments were very helpful. The problem that others encountered with short bolts seems to be fixed now. Instead of 2 short and 2 long hex head bolts shown in one of the photos, they now provide four "2.25 inch" bolts which are really about 2.125" which makes the lower driver side bolt marginal. Good practice calls for at least 1 thread to extend beyond the nut, but the lower bolt feels (I can't see it) to be approxemately flush which should be good enough.


Fast shipping! Fits 2013 jk perfectly. As the video states you need to enlarge the hole on the left side. Bought this for the snowbear 84” plow setup.


The hitch was exactly as advertised. Installation instructions were complete.

One year later and its still working great!

Great product. Fits nice, looks great.

Thanks much for the pix. You should sell them to Curt and provide them a template for valance trim!!!!

Bill are these images?.. Or have the images been assign to your post?.. reason Im asking is that it appears that you did a great job cutting away the lower air dam for the hitch receiver.. very professional. Do you have a template for this alteration?

Chevrolet Silverado

Worked with out a hitch (pun intended.. for 1 year without issue) used it to mount aluminum plow to front for plowing drive way and works great.

I bought one for a full size Silverado and it too worked for three years no issues or loosening. I added the copper never-seize to nuts and bolts when installing. Good brand

Jeep Wrangler

Fits as described and with a custom bumper!
highly recommend!
2015 Jeep Wrangler 4 door Unlimited.

2010 Jeep Wrangler

Front reciever 2007 Rubicon The front hitch reciever is for 2007 and on Jeep wrangler but I have a Rubicon. ALMOST the same but there is the small problem of the swaybar disconect. Probably a 10 minute job on a wrangler but on the Rubicon it took an hour squeezing my hands arount the swaybar disconect. Fits and looks great, I highly recomend this item.

on a rubicon remove the sway bar and disconnect as a unit , takes maybe 10 min so you can acess the hitch location.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

We bought this hitch to use a floating snow plow on the front. It's works just like it should.we took our bumper off to put a new aftermarket bumper on which made installation easier. With an aftermarket bumper we did have to trim a part in the middle of the bumper for the hitch to fit but if you have a stock bumper it will fit perfect.

2012 Jeep JK

The hitch fit perfect... All the hardware was supplied... However, on the drivers side of my 2012 JK, there is an extra bracket mounted on the frame which causes 2 of the bolts to fall short by a little over a quarter inch... This may only apply to 2012... A quick trip to the hardware store remedied the problem... The order arrived ahead of time and was well packed... Very happy with etrailer and would definately recommend their company...


My receiver is exactly what I was looking for… Now I can flat tow my Jeep, or push my boat down a winding road… Thanks!

2008 Jeep Wrangler

Excellent merchandise as always. Great company to deal with and fast shipping. I would highly recommend to my friends!

for maneuvering trailers in to tight places!

2011 Jeep Wrangler

Found a front receiver hitch for my 2011 Jeep Wrangler at a reasonable price. Arrived quickly, had the local garage install for me. We tow a 1960 Nomad trailer with this vehicle and plan to add a bike rack to the front.

2011 Jeep Wrangler

The product and workman ship were excellent, the look and fit up close to the bumper were great.
The ease of the install was terrible, took way more than 45 min.
Need to figure a better way of simplifying installation, and better instructions on cutting front air dam.
I bought the jeep reciever cover and really finished off the appearance.

2015 Jeep Wrangler

Jeep wrangler install fairly easy. Need longer arms on handle nuts. Very hard to torque inside frame nuts.

Works great with front hitch plow. Light winter last year though so only used it a couple times.
Joseph O - 11/18/2020

2013 Jeep Wrangler

I have a '13 Wrangler Unlimited. The hitch is solid and the holes in it do line up with the holes in the front bumper. Maybe it's just me, but 45 minutes is an extremely optimistic prediction of how long the installation takes. I ended up having to drill one hole in the bumper support (as suggested) figure out ways to actually get the nuts and washers in such tight quarters. I'm glad it's installed now and looks great. I think a detailed video or an alternate method of attachment would be helpful, for my model at least.

Jeep Wrangler

Great service, easy to follow instructions for installation. It was a nice front hitch option on Jeep Wrangler to place fishing basket and still have option to use back hitch.

Toyota Echo

Good QualityI'd echo the other reviewer's comments about installation on a Rubicon model. Getting to the mounting bolts with sway bar disconnect was painful. If you plan to reinstall the bumper valence you need to trim it. The instructions only provide the vaguest locations of where to trim. Curt should have provided some life size templates.

The hitch itself seems well made and of good quality. But if you have a Rubicon and plan on replacing the valence it will be 3x-4x longer to install than the 45 minutes noted in the installation instructions.


Looks and works great. Very easy to install with great instructions. 2nd hitch I have purchased from etrailer. Great prices and fast shipping. Recommend highly!

2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Thanks for keeping me posted on the progress of my shipment.
I got it Friday and it was installed by Saturday at 9:00am.
I used it Sunday to park my tent trailer in my garage, it was so easy with the front hitch.

2014 Jeep Wrangler

Great product, installation well, it's a handful. If our was only as easy as the vid shows haha. On a 2014 Wrangler there will be one hole that you will need to drill and of course it is one of the holes that you snake the bolt. It was allot easier to remove the front bumper and fill plate. It's not something you can just throw on real quick, tasks a lil effort, but it is great to day 'i did it". Besides probably saved some good $$$.


I use this hitch with my snow plow on the Jeep and it stays solid. The installation was super easy with the included kit.
