  • Recommended Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Rubicon
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65079 is a confirmed fit for your Jeep with steel bumper.

  • Front Hitch and Plow Recommendation for 1994 Dodge Ram
  • Typically plow mounts and front hitches install in the same are so they can't both install at the same time. Only solution that allows both is to use a front hitch like the part # 65003 with a hitch mounted plow like the SnowSport Agri-Cover Plow part # A40000HD. I really like this plow though as it's a very simple but effective setup. No wiring or winch install needed.

  • Can Vehicle that is Flat Towable be Towed on Tow Dolly
  • The owners manual of a vehicle is the final authority on whether a vehicle can be flat towed. Since yours says it's okay you'd be fine. But you should note that the instructions you listed are referring to flat towing with all wheels on the ground. You need to find the section on dolly towing. The steering wheel will need to be locked so that the dolly does not hit the side of the vehicle around turns.

  • Will Front Mount Hitch Interfere With Parking Sensors on 2018 Ram 3500?
  • There has been no information that indicates the front parking sensors of a 2018 Ram 3500 will not work with the front mounted Draw-Tite # 65063 installed. If you take a look at the photo I added you can see this hitch installed on an '18 Ram 3500. The Curt # C31067 is also a fit for your truck and we did have a customer come back and say the hitch did not interfere with the front sensors.

  • The front mount hitch receivers from Curt and Draw-Tite that fit your 2018 Ford F-150 are parts # C31083 and # 65067 respectively. Both of these are rated for 9,000 lbs line pull and 500 lbs vertical load. From the 2 bolts holes on the Curt to the top of the receiver tube measures just under 7-1/2" while that same distance on the Draw-Tite is closer to 7". The Draw-Tite will give you more ground clearance but not by much. Instructions for both receivers have been linked for you to reference. If...

  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65080 that fits your 2016 Toyota Tundra has a vertical load limit (the front mount hitch version of tongue weight) of 500 lbs; you can use this hitch and tow your trailer at the same time so long as your weights stay within their respective capacities.

  • Help Backing Up Travel Trailer on 2017 Ram 2500
  • Even at a short distance and going slowly, I do not recommend using a front hitch like the Draw-Tite # 65063 or Curt # C31015 on your 2017 Ram 2500 to help back up your travel trailer because your trailer's tongue weight is well over capacity and it simply would not be safe. The best option for you is a back-up camera, the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112. This is an easy to use system that suits your needs perfectly, with the camera having a magnetic base you can attach...

I called to confirm with my Tech contact at Curt and he said the mounting isn't the same because the bumper is different and the tow hooks are required.

You won't need to trim any fascia on the vehicle when installing the hitch. Also keep in mind that the factory tow hooks (if present) won't need to be removed, either. In this case you will just remove the two M12 fasteners from the frame rails but the included hardware will take their place to secure the hitch to the frame with the tow hooks still present. You...

  • Front-Mount Hitch for 2015 Toyota Tundra for Use with 2-Bike Hitch Bike Rack
  • A front-mounted hitch is often a nice alternative method for using a hitch-mount bike rack, especially when you're already towing a trailer with your rear-mount hitch. Plus having a front hitch means that it can be a lot easier to maneuver your trailer into a campsite or into its storage location and one also allows you to use a hitch-mounted snowplow such as # A40000HD. For your 2015 Tundra we have Curt hitch # 31198 and Draw-Tite # 65051. Both have identical weight ratings and both...

  • Hitch Extension Compatibility With Front Hitch on 2013 Ford F150 for Winch Mount Fit
  • For your Warn Zeon 10 Winch on your 2013 Ford F-150, the Curt front mounted receiver # C31068 has a vertical load of 500 lbs and a line pull ratting of 9,000 lbs. Because of the recessed receiver, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers - 8" Long # C45791 which reduces that vertical load limit by 50% and brings it to 250 lbs. I recommend using hitch lock # 7683 and getting the pins keyed alike by selecting that from the box on the product page.

  • For your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee we have the Curt Front Hitch part # C31033 which is a confirmed fit and has a 350 lb vertical load capacity. If the weight of your scooter and carrier is less than that this would work. But you'd have to consider the fact you are most likely going to block air flow to the radiator and possibly your headlights. For a carrier then we have the MaxxTow Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 which would work well. For tie downs we then have the part # EM05710.

  • Does the Skid Plate on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Need to be Removed to Install a Front Hitch
  • The front skid plate you have on your 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD will need to be removed in order to install a front mount trailer hitch like the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31076. This has to do with where the hitch mounts in relation to the skid plate and the lack of space for both to attach. There will be no way to install a front mount hitch on the vehicle without either removing or modifying the skid plate.

  • Can 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 Front Hitch be Used to Push a Trailer with 750 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • All of the available front mount hitches including # 65050 for your 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 have a vertical load limit of 500 pounds. However, it is possible that since you will be pushing the trailer around the tongue weight could be lower if the front of the trailer was higher than the back or if you could move weight far enough back on the trailer to reduce the tongue weight. If you aren't pushing the trailer around very far or for very long then I wouldn't anticipate an issue.

  • On the Curt front mount receiver # 31198 there is a note stating that the skid shield will either have to be removed or you can trim it and reinstall in on your 2018 Toyota Tundra.

Some customers have noted that they had to make or enlarge a hole on a bottom panel in order to be able to change the oil. You may also consider using the Bike Bunk,...

Also check out the install pictures too. This hangs a couple inches lower than the Draw Tite too so it's the better choice.

  • Will the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65078 Fit a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65078 unfortunately will not fit your 2011 GMC Sierra Denali, instead you need to go with the Curt # C31023. We have tried looking into this ourselves but we haven't been able to really determine why one will fit and the other one won't. Since front mount hitches are vehicle specific though there is likely a small difference behind the fascia on your Denali that prevents the Draw-Tite option from being properly installed.

The Draw-Tite front mount receiver, part # 65063, installs pretty high on your 2017 Ram 3500, about level with the tow hooks. Then the Swagman XC, part # S64650, has a 4 inch rise in the shank plus the center mast is about 29 inches tall in itself. I'd estimate the center mast is a total of about 35 inches up from the...

  • Will Draw-Tite Front Hitch # 65064 Reduce Ground Clearance When Installed

We also had a customer come back and say that since the hitch installed through the lower valence it really didn't affect it. Here's how you can measure though and determine. Measure from the frame mounting surface on the front of your vehicle down 9.62 inches and you'll know where the hitch will be at it's lowest point.

  • It sounds like you've already seen that the Draw-Tite front mount hitch, part # 65078, isn't confirmed to fit your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 because of the Denali trim package. I tried to determine exactly how much fascia trimming is needed to see if it could be done with enough modification but I didn't have a lot of luck. I can tell you that the receiver tube comes out from behind your front license plate. The cut out on non-Denali models needs to be 3-1/4 by 3-1/4 inches square and...

I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform 2-bike rack (which is normally an unheard of combo).

  • Is There A Front Hitch Available That Fits A 2016 Or 2017 Kia Sorento
  • There is no front hitch available for a 2016 or 2017 Kia Sorento. Normally front hitches like the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch, Item # 65009, are used by pickups/trucks because their frames have the capacity to handle the stress. If you give me an idea what you are trying to do, I can try to find another option for you. If a front mount hitch is the only way to go for you then your best option would be to go to a custom fabrication shop and have one made.

Let me know if it is the old body style and we will look for other options if necessary. There should be an additional bolt hole on the frame which is where those 2 bolts go. You will also have to remove and modify the skid plate to have enough room for the receiver. Contact us if you have any other questions.
