Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" - C31082

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

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.


2019 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E. Installed it myself but a helper would have made it easier. Instruction say to remove and discard the lower engine shroud before mounting. I chose to do surgery on the shroud to fit the attachment points and put it back in. This made the install harder (less finger room) but the result in very nice. I measured clearance before and after at the lowest part of the engine. Putting this on reduced overall clearance 1 inch. It changed angle of attack significantly. Here's what you should think about...Is this a vehicle for serious 4 wheeling in? Then don't do this. And buy a different truck with greater ground clearance. If, like me, you pull a small trailer on paved and gravel roads, and you want to put bikes on the front, this will work great. See pictures attached.

Great, no problems!

Fair pricing and GREAT SERVICE. In the period of who has the lowest price, to me, service and product knowledge should be winning more business. I will spend more for the service levels companies like etrailer provide.

This is my 10th purchase of hitches for me, my family and friends. I will buy more!


Just installed today with my brothers help. Great instructions/ photos. Did take about 2 hours start to finish, not the 1 hour suggested. Otherwise no issues.

Ask the Experts about this CURT Front Receiver Hitch

  • How Much Will Ground Clearance Be Reduced by Installing a Front Hitch on 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    We've had a few customers report back that the installation of a front hitch like the Curt # C31082, only sits about 1" below the factory installed components on the 2019 Honda Ridgeline, which means the difference is really going to be negligible. As long as you don't also use your truck for off-roading, that shortened clearance really shouldn't make a huge difference in your experience after installation. During installation you will likely need to either trim the front fascia/air dam...

  • Does Curt Front Hitch for 2019 Honda Ridgeline Require Trimming Front Bumper
    The Curt front hitch part # C31082 that we offer for your 2019 Honda Pilot does not require any front fascia or bumper trimming to install but you will need to remove a lower fascia panel. You can trim and reinstall it if you like though. I attached a picture of what the hitch looks like installed for you to check out as well.

  • Front Hitch Ground Clearance on 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31082 sits up really close to the bottom of the front bumper on your 2019 Honda Ridgeline, so while it will have an effect on ground clearance, it's not by much at all. We had a customer install install the hitch on his 2019 Ridgeline and reported that it only reduced the truck's ground clearance by about an inch (when compared to the lowest factory component under the truck). I have attached a couple images of the hitch installed so you can see exactly...

  • Vehicle Modifications Necessary to Install Curt C31082 Front Hitch on 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    According to Curt in order to install the Curt # C31082 front receiver on your Ridgeline, there is a splash guard that's just to the rear of the valance under the bumper that needs to be removed and will not be reinstalled. The two rear-most hitch mounting holes in the crossmember will need to be enlarged to 11/16, but those are the only modifications that will need to be completed in order to install the hitch. You can see the splash guard that will be removed in the photo I provided.

    Yes, the loops on the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31082 for a 2020 Honda Ridgeline can be used for vehicle recovery. That is actually their purpose sense there would be no need for safety chains on a front mount hitch.

  • Front Hitch Installation Clearance On A 2017 Honda Ridgeline
    We currently have two different front mounted hitch options for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline. This being the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31082 and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65073. According to the manufacturer, the Curt trailer hitch receiver "will" require you to trim the front fascia on the vehicle whereas Draw-Tite says you "may" have to. Regardless, the trimming on both applications will only be minor if even necessary. The bottom most...

  • e-Bike Rack to Fit with Honda Ridgeline OEM Hitch Receiver and Flat Towed Vehicle
    The reason that the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 needs at least that 1-1/2" clearance has more to do with leverage than anything. Since you don't have enough clearance I would avoid going with this rack. In all honesty you would probably be just fine with the flat towing part, but Thule has deemed that a vehicle being flat towed has too much movement which is why that rating exists. They've also stated it's not to be used with motorhomes either, by the way. A great alternative is the Yakima...
