2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty

I installed this on my 2004 F350 super duty. The install was straight forward and for the most part easy. I did have a hard time getting the nuts on the top bolts even with the handles on them just from lack of space, but got them on there and it looks clean.

Great receiver. Didn't actually fit my truck's front bumper, but I was able to make some spacers to get it mounted. Works great for the mounting spot for a rig that holds my kayak on top of the truck.

Great price. Installed easily. Works gr eat!

Well built. Good hardware included. Not a perfect fit. Definitely required some additional drilling and fabrication. Budget some extra time.

  • Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2000 Born Free Motorhome on Ford E450 Cutaway Van Chassis
    We do indeed have one. The Curt # 33055 front mounted receiver is a fit for the 2000 Ford E450 Cutaway Van chassis used on your motorhome. I've linked you to a video that will walk you through the install. The Curt # 31114 you'd looked at is a fit for an Excursion or a Super Duty truck, and wouldn't fit your Van chassis.

  • Correct Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Ford F-350
    I do have an option for you but the only Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver option for a 2004 Ford F-350 is part # 31114.

  • Why is Curt Front HItch 31114 Difficult to Install on 1999 Ford F350 Super Duty 4x4
    Our contact at Curt Manufacturing said that it sounds like you have a blocker beam on your 99 F350 Super Duty 4x4. A blocker beam is a 3 inch by 1 inch steel bar that mounts underneath the frame on the front of the vehicle and could be the reason your hitch will not mount correctly. In that case you would need a Curt Front Hitch for the 1999 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty part # C31014. However, if your truck is a cab and chassis model this hitch will not work either.

  • Front Mount Hitch Fit for a 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty
    The front mount trailer hitch I recommend for your 2005 Ford F-350 is the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31114 because it is made in the USA and currently our most cost effective option for a front mount hitch. I called Curt and they were not sure of where you were measuring to get a 37" frame but if you measure the distance between the two innermost mounting points (see photo) on the front end plate of your frame rail, you should get 31" and if you do the above will work...

  • Front Mounted Receiver for Motorcycle Carrier on 2001 Ford F350
    Two designs of front mounted hitch are available for the 2001 Ford F350. One mounts to the front of the frame members, and the receiver tube would extend through the bumper like the Draw-Tite # 65022 or the Curt # 31114. These hitches only fit vehicles without a secondary bumper or blocker beam. The other hitch, the Curt # C31014 mounts under the bumper. The Curt hitch will only fit certain vehicles, those that have the blocker beam located behind the air dam. I'll link you to the install...

  • Do Fog Lights Have to Be Removed to Install Front Hitch # 31114
    It isn't ideal to have to remove the factory fog lights to install the front hitch part # 31114 that you referenced, but since their location is the best place for mounting this hitch there unfortunately isn't a better solution. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F350
    Both the Draw Tite Hitch part # 65022 and the Curt Front Hitch part # 31114 are confirmed to fit your 2001 Ford F350, both will install the same and will have the same capacities. The Draw Tite has more reviews and they were all positive, so based on that and the fact that it costs a little less that's the route I would go. I attached an install video for you to check out.

  • Do Fog Lights on 2002 Ford F-350 have to be Removed to Install a Front Mount Trailer Hitch
    To install the Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31114 the fog lights on your 2002 Ford F-350 will have to be either removed permanently or relocated. But you can install Curt front mount hitch # C31014 and keep the OEM fog lights. I have linked instructions for both hitches for you.

  • How to Pick out a Front Mount Hitch for a 1999 Ford F350
    The difference between the Curt Hitch # C31014 and Curt Hitch # 31114 is that the # C31014 is designed for vehicles with blocker beams and the # 31114 is designed for vehicles without the blocker beam. You will want to look under the front end of your 1999 Ford F350 to see if you have a blocker beam and order the correct front hitch for your vehicle. If you get under the front of your vehicle and see an L-shaped bracket attached to a beam that runs from one frame rail to the other you...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    While we do have a front-mounted trailer hitch receiver that fits a 2003 Ford F-250, the part model you asked about will not fit as it doesn't have the correct dimensions to line up with your truck and there are no brackets that will allow this. So for a front-mount hitch on your F-250 you can choose from a few different options, and I'll add some fit notes you'll want to be aware of for a couple of them. - Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65022 - Curt Front Mount Trailer...

    The correct front mount trailer hitch for a 2016 Freedom Elite Motorhome on Ford E-450 Cutaway Chassis is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65053. This is the only available option for this chassis. It seems like you were looking at front mount hitches for a F-Series and not the E-Series which is where the confusion lies.

  • Front Hitch Installation For 2002 Ford Excursion Diesel With Blocker Beam
    The front hitch designed for your 2002 Ford Excursion is the Curt Hitch, part # 31114. This is a custom fit hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. I called my contact at Curt and they told me they were not aware of a blocker beam being installed on an Excursion. They did tell me that the front mount hitch # 31114 would bolt to the brackets for the springs and the blocker beam would attach to the underside of the front mount hitch. They told me it would bolt into place like the 31014...

  • Front-Mount Hitch For Winch On 2001 Ford F-250 Truck With Blocker Beam
    I spoke with my contact at Curt and asked about your 2001 Ford F-250 truck. They told me that the reason for the difference in fit is due to the blocker beam that is installed on the truck. You actually purchased the correct front mounted hitch, part # C31014, if your truck has the front bumper bar. They told me that due to the bar, the hitch will be mounted in a different manner and the receiver will be below the bumper, not through the middle of the bumper like part # 31114.

  • Comparing the Curt Front Hitch 31114 and the Draw-Tite Front Hitch 65022 for a 2000 Ford F-250
    There are virtually no structural differences between the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31114 and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65022 for your 2000 Ford F-250. They both install in the exact same location and allot for a 500/5,000 Lb vertical load and line pull rating. The main reason for the price difference is that the Curt hitch is made in the USA and has a more resistant powder coating. I have attached a sample install video for you as well.

  • Which Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 1999 Ford Excursion
    I reached out to Curt directly and found that the Curt Front Trailer Hitch Receiver # 31114 will work on your Ford Excursion. From my research Ford started production of the Excursion in September of 1999, but labeled them as 2000 model year vehicles. I included a picture of the Curt # 31114 for you to take a look at.

    We have not had a chance to install the Curt Front Mount Hitch, # C31014, on a 2001 Ford F-350 yet, but I did confirm with my contact at Curt that this hitch will not interfere with the fog lights. You will not have to remove or replace your fog lights with this hitch. Please note, this hitch will only fit models that have a blocker beam. The blocker beam is a small sub-bumper located behind the air dam. This hitch will install between the blocker beam and the blocker beam brackets. I...

  • Front Hitch for 2003 Ford Excursion With Blocker Beam
    The instructions for both of the front-mounted hitches that are a fit for your 2003 Ford Excursion, the Draw-Tite # 65022 and Curt # 31114 reference the blocker beam, saying you'll need to remove and then reinstall it when putting on either hitch. This means, of course, that these hitches are not direct replacements for the blocker beam but either could still be installed.

  • Comparison Between Draw-Tite # 65022 and Curt # 31114 Front Mount Receivers for 1999 Ford F250
    The primary difference between the Draw-Tite # 65022 and the Curt # 31114 is that they're manufactured by two different companies. The hitches are nearly identical in appearance, have the same weight ratings and would install in the same manner. Because of this, you can choose the less expensive Draw-Tite model, and not feel that you sacrificed anything. If you click the provided link, you can see an install video for the Draw-Tite model.

According to the installation instructions, the tow hooks are temporarily removed but are re-installed later in the process. The Curt front mount receiver, part # 31114 will also work. It is nearly identical and would install in the same manner. I have provided a photo showing what the receiver would look like once installed.

    Curt front-mount trailer hitch # 31114 will fit the 2003 Ford F-550 cab-and-chassis but it will NOT fit the F-550 Super-Duty pickup. No front hitches are offered for the F-550 pickup. Curt hitch # 31114 does require some drilling for installation and it will also require you to remove/relocate the OEM fog lights.
