2011 Honda Ridgeline

We live just south of Buffalo and Put this on our '11 Honda Ridgeline with a snowsport plow and a week later it snowed, and snowed and snowed... 5 feet in 24 hours and it's still snowing.... It's not good.... It's AWESOME! Not one driveway or even our street is clear... Except ours. It was easy to put together , easy to install and works exactly like it's advertised!
It's November and it paid for itself already. Communication with etrailer was exceptional. We could not be happier with the whole setup.

Greg C.


Hi Robin:I have a 2012 Ridgeline and I was wondering how the plow is working for you.Thanks much.GregTraverse City, MI

Robin G.


Still working very well! The only thing we had to do was re tighten some of the mounting bolts but we did give it quite the workout! The rack it sits on is scraped up from use but that is completely expected and we will just sand and spray in the spring before we put it away. No complaints... Its a well built, sturdy unit. I would buy again in a heartbeat!



What modifications on your Ridgeline did you have to make to install your hitch receiver?Thanks for your help.

2006 Honda Ridgeline

Needed a front hitch for a 2006 Ridgeline Honda truck. I found it on and a better price for same hitch on another online store. As I talked with the customer service agent, I was also offered a discount which was quite a surprise. Shipping was very fast. Had it installed on my truck so I could attach a mounting hitch and snow blade. I am extremely happy with this hitch and


They asked for a review a year later, AWESOME! I love the front mount on my '13 Ridgeline for a snowsport "floating plow" I bought thru AgriCover. My Ridgeline plows the whole neighborhood now!!!


Great service from etrailer, not so good manufacturing by Curt.

The following advise is for a 2007 Honda Ridgeline.
I purchased this hitch in order to push my 21 foot travel trailer into a tight parking area at the side of my house where reversing it in with the tow vehicle is difficult.

Be aware that the mounting holes on this hitch do not quite match, they are slightly off, enough to make mounting a problem that may lead to damaged bolts or even cross threaded bolts. Do yourself a favor and get a 1/4" round file, then file the two elongated holes on the center flange towards the forward edge and away from the hitch receiver to make them longer. Then file the two mounting holes on each of the outer flanges inwards toward the center or hitch receiver tube and elongate them.

Dry fit the hitch making sure the bolts go into the threads easily, they are fine pitch and are easily cross threaded and damaged, make sure they ALL go into the chassis nuts without trouble because in the final assembly you will also be dealing with the splash guard, which will be hampering your final assembly.

Thank you for your detailed review. Because you are installing on a 2007, weld nuts must be cleaned or else it will be difficult to install. Another thing which may have happened, is some flex in the receiver, which would account for it not fitting exactly right. I will attach a help article explaining more:


I had some difficulty lining up the bolts but suspect that is my issue rather than the product. So far I have only used it once for a camping trip with a rack designed for an ATV (rack is offset for ground clearance) and that worked well. I also plan to use for a small bike rack when 4 bike rack in back is overloaded. Puts more utility in my SUV, always a good thing.



Great, every SUV should have a hitch and having two is just so much better.


Desided not to install due to the low ground clearance issues.. otherwise the quality and craftsmanship is excellent.. also concerns of front end chassis flexing and steering alignment issues if high loads were imposed on hitch.. may install in the future


The good news is the hitch fit and it helps with getting the boat into the garage with a curved driveway. It was extremely hard to get the bolt holes aligned. If the front screws Had an alignment pin and if the bolt hole were larger it would have helped. I ended up stripping one front screw.

Bruce G.


Still using it and it is working well.


I was a little surprised with the snow plow. I thought it was going to be hydraulic/electric. It does okay, going on flat and slight declines. Inclines not so good. I also. Bought a rear trailer hitch. Very pleased with it.

2005 Honda Pilot

I plan on using this to assist me in backing my travel trailer into a small side yard next to my house and my neighbor's fence. Backing it into this small area has been extremely nerve wracking as my home air conditioner unit is close to the house and trailer. Now I will have the luxury of making sure nothing is damaged. and better yet the front hitch will be hidden under the car and out of the way.


I needed to have my local mechanic install this - not from any fault of the product but the rusted bolts in my truck got so tight that the nuts internal to the frame members broke free of their welds. It's not really been used much but seems like it will do the job when called on!


This may be more of a fault of the vehicle than the hitch. There is 4 bolts that need to be removed from the vehicle (Honda Ridgeline) bumper reinforcement bar that have hidden welded nuts that snap loose due to an accumulation of rust.
Upon further inspection of the reinforcement provided for the vehicles front end, I am not sure using this hitch to mount a snowplow won't be compromising to the vehicle's structural integrity in the long run.

2008 Honda Ridgeline

Couldn't have asked for a better product! So simple to add a front hitch to my 2008 Honda Ridgeline. Was done in 45 mins. Highly recommended to all my ridgeline friends.


Works great. Had to get an extension to attach my winch.

Honda Pilot

This my third front hitch and they work great for my purpose. I am a pilot car for oversized loads this works great for front sign and as a carrier for the high pole each one has fitted properly and work great Thanks Ronnie


The Curt receiver arrived in a few days after ordering and it was an easy install. I would recommend to anyone.


I LOVE my Curt front-mount trailer hitch. I installed it myself, and while I wouldn’t say it was “easy”, it was reasonable. The instructions were clear and the fit was perfect. I bought the hitch because I have a boat and a travel trailer that I need to maneuver in a fairly small space. I considered an electric trailer mover, but the hitch was much less expensive, and it is with me wherever I go. The front hitch makes it extremely easy to move the boat and the travel trailer with great precision. You have good visibility of the load, and because the hitch is so close to the front (steering) axle, it is very easy and intuitive to make small directional adjustments.

Honda Ridgeline

This hitch will probably outlast the truck. Very beefy and well designed, all bolt holes matched up perfectly to the Ridgeline subframe. I purchased it, along with a removable winch mount and quick-release 12V. battery cable connectors, so that I can keep my winch out of the way and locked in the tool box when not in use.

(Unfortunately, the removable winch mount that goes into the receiver, and which I bought from a different manufacturer, is flimsy compared to this unit).


Love Curt, second one I have bought. This one came with a crazy little skinny wire tool with a spring on the end so I could pull a bolt and washer 12" through a steel tube on the car and make it hang down so I could put a nut on it for the hitch. Amazing. Genius! American ingenuity! (And BTW, I love etrailer, too. They have so much stuff, and not just for your trailer but your car, too! And all kinds of helpful videos. I know this sounds like a commercial, but it isn't. I'm real and hard to impress, but these guys are impressive.)


This was the easiest purchase and installation of a hitch I've ever done. I have already told my neighbor about e trailer and I'll keep referring them to anyone looking for a hitch.


Receiver hitch fit perfectly. I contacted etrailer a couple times with delivery questions and they always responded right away. Very pleased.


Allows us to put our camper in our warehouse much easier. I consider it mission accomplished!

Honda Ridgeline

Got here fast and fits my Honda Ridgeline Perfect


Looks Great! Well built!No reduction in ground clearence. I really took my time putting it on and it took me 2 hours on a Saturday afternoon! Looks real tough on the Ridgeline!

2008 Honda Ridgeline



I haven’t needed to use it often, but when I have it was a life saver. I can’t backup a trailer for the life of me. I guess I’ll have to add to a new Ridgeline as soon as I buy one.


Easy fit up. Works as expected. Solid

  • If Fascia Needs To Be Removed For Service Does Hitch Also Have to be Removed on 2007 Honda Ridgeline
    After reading the instructions it does sound like the fascia is removed and trimmed for the CURT 2 Inch Front Hitch, part # 33328 to fit on your 2007 Honda Ridgeline. Then, the hitch and fascia is reinstalled together, so if you have to remove the fascia later it will not come completely off with the hitch installed. I spoke with my contact at CURT and they did verify that the hitch would have to be removed to remove the fascia. I do not know of normal services on the Honda Ridgeline that...

  • Westin Bull Bars Should Not Conflict with Front Mount Hitches
    The Westin Bull Bars should not conflict with the front mount hitches at all. The receiver opening on the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 33328, will sit behind a small opening in the front fascia already present on your vehicle. The hole is too small right now, so you will have to enlarge the hole a bit. If you would like to view the installation instructions for the hitch, please click on the Instructions link.

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda Pilot
    For your 2013 Honda Pilot I would recommend the Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31064. This hitch has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and should work very well. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also. We never recommend modifying a hitch to fit a different vehicle than it was intended for and vice versa, this would void the warranty of both the hitch and the vehicle.

  • Can Snowbear Snow Plow for Frame Mounts Install on 2007 Honda Ridgeline
    We might have a solution for you but it depends on which model winch you have. The only way to install a Snowbear plow on your 2007 Honda Ridgeline is with a front hitch mount. So you'd have to have a hitch installed like the Curt # 33328. It sounds like your plow was designed for mounting to the 2-point frame brackets that SnowBear also uses. What hopefully will work for you then is the # SB324-120 as this converts that style of plow to a hitch mount style. The plow would need to be one...

  • Front Mounted Receiver for a 2020 Chevy Silverado
    We do offer some front receiver fits for the AT4 trim package of the 2020 Chevy Silverado, unless it's a 1500 series that has the 2.7L turbo engine or the 3.0L Diesel engine, as the additional plumbing and intercooler won't allow a front hitch to fit. For the 1500 series with no Turbo or Diesel, you'd use the Curt # C31088. For the 2500 or 3500, you'd need the EcoHitch item # EH57FR front receiver which works on all models of the 2500 or 3500, regardless of engine. The Curt # 33328 fits...

    For the purposes of structural rigidity or safety, there's no problem whatsoever with leaving that bit of fascia off if you wish. The fascia plays a role in how the wind is directed under the vehicle as you're driving down the road, but I doubt you'll notice any significant difference. If you decide you want to reinstall the fascia, the plastic push fasteners are pretty inexpensive, you should be able to find them online pretty easily.
