Expert Answers about Front Hitch


  • Recommendations for Carrying Kayaks and Bikes while Pulling Travel Trailer with 2002 GMC Sierra 1500
  • I have a way to help you carry all of your equipment at the same time or individually on your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500. First, I recommend the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers - 7,500 lbs # D210. This will work as long as your travel trailer is less than that 7500 lb capacity. This will allow you to carry a bike rack and tow a trailer, or it will allow you to tow a trailer and use a load extender for your kayaks. I recommend the Darby Extend-A-Truck...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2000 29Z RV Built on Ford E-350 Chassis
  • Your 2000 29z Tioga is built on a 1999 Ford F-350 cutaway chassis which means that you'd need the # 65001 for a front hitch. I attached an install video for this for you to check out on a similar RV as well.

  • Will a Front Mount Hitch and Snow Plow Fit a 2007 Jeep Wrangler with Super Drive Bumper
  • Trailer hitch and snow plow manufacturers do not test their products on vehicles that have been modified with aftermarket parts. Therefore, I would not be able to confirm fitment of a front mount trailer hitch or snow plow on your 2007 Jeep Wrangler. Your best option in order to attach a snow plow to the vehicle would involve putting the stock Jeep bumper back on. There is a very small likelihood that the snow plow would clear the front bumper assuming that the hitch fits. If you install...

  • Will Curt Front Hitch 31313 fit 2008 Toyota Tacoma?
  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 31313 is a confirmed fit for all models of the 2008 Toyota Tacoma. I checked with Curt to make sure and the hitch will fit on base models. Two wheel drive models of the Tacoma may require some drilling and all 2007 and newer models will require the front skid plate being removed, though that will be the only difference in terms of installation. I've attached the installation instructions for you to take a look at as well.

  • Will Agri-Cover SnowSport Front Mount Hitch Work With Snowplows on 1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ?
  • The Agri-Cover SnowSport Front Mount Hitch # A40163 for your 1994 Jeep YJ can work with some K2 plows, the Detail K2 Avalanche Snowplow # K2AVAL8422 which is 84" wide x 22" tall and weighs 283 lbs as well as the Detail K2 Avalanche # K2AVAL8219 which is 82" wide x 19" tall and weighs 265 lbs. The Agri-Cover hitch will work with those K2 plows though is designed to work with Agri-Cover SnowSport HD plows # A40000HD which is 84" wide x 18" tall and weighs 114 lbs, # A40040HD which is 96"...

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver that Doesn't Reduce Ground Clearance for a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately there are no bull bar/grille guard options out there that also utilize a front mount hitch for your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. I believe that you were looking at the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31071 which has a drop so that the receiver sits under the front fascia on your Silverado. Draw-Tite actually offers a front mount receiver as well which does not reduce the ground clearance for your truck. To install the part...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2000 Dodge Ram 1500

  • Recommended Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1997 Ford F-150 4WD for Snow Plow
  • The Curt hitch # 31049 for your 1997 Ford F-150 cannot be mounted upside down. It is designed to be that high for winch mounting and a more hidden look with greater ground clearance. Based on your need to have the hitch lower for your snowplow, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65025 which is a confirmed fit for your F-150 4WD. Based on customer measurements, this hitch will be about 14 inches from the ground. I also recommend using...

  • Recommended Flat Towing System for 2004 Ford F-150
  • To tow a vehicle, you cannot simply connect a rear bumper to a front bumper. That would not allow for the movement needed to safely tow the vehicle. So the front mounted hitch # 65043 while a confirmed fit for your 2004 F-150, is not what you need for this application. What you will need is a towbar and baseplates for the actual connection. I recommend the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 495-1A and then the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch -...

  • For your 1999 GMC 2500 HD with 4WD, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65005. This receiver is rated for 9,000 lbs line pull, vertical load of 500 lbs, and gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. I also recommend the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers # 63080 to go with this receiver. I've attached a video of this product to assist. I also recommend the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2002 Ford E-250
  • Due to the design of your 2002 Ford E-250 there really isn't a way to install a front hitch without some minor modification. I wish we had a better option, but the # 65001 would be the way to go. The modification really is pretty minor and is only enlarging an access hole in the frame. If you check out the install video I attached you'll see how our installers performed this.

  • Comparing Snow Plows for 2017 Ford F-250 4x4
  • For all of the plows you mentioned you'd need the Curt hitch part # C31078 installed on your 2017 Ford F-250 to use them. The winch style is the most common seen and is generally considered to be the most reliable and best option. If for nothing else the visibility is much better with them like on the part # SB324-080 over the # SB324-140 due to the actuating arm. The K2 plow part # K2AVAL8422 is a great plow, the Snowbears are a bit more popular and well-known, but this plow is solid...

  • 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.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2004 Chevy Silverado that Allows Tow Hooks to Remain
  • If your 2004 Chevy Silverado is a 1500LD the correct front hitch is the part # 65023 that you referenced. If you have basically any other Silverado the correct fit is the part # 65028. Both of these front hitches allow you to keep the tow hooks on the truck.

  • Dimensions of Curt Front Mount Hitch Receiver Part # 31408
  • I went out the warehouse and took the measurements you asked about on the Curt Front Mount Hitch, part # 31408. I've attached a diagram showing them. The inside distance between the mounting plates is about 27-1/2 inches. Between the 2 sets of bolt holes towards the rear of the hitch (The end that would be facing the rear of the Jeep) are both about 30-7/8 inches center to center. The slotted holes are different sizes but they're basically in line with each other. The third set...

  • Recommendation of Front Mount Hitch Receiver on a 1998 Ford Expedition 4-Wheel Drive for a Snow Plow
  • Looking at the installation between the front mount hitches that fit your 1998 Ford Expedition, the Curt, part # 31049, installs much higher where the license plate is normally mounted. The benfit is more ground clearance but you'll need to relocate your license plate using part # C31002. Also, on your Expedition that seems like an extremely high mounting point for a snow plow. The Draw-Tite, part # 65025, installs quite a bit lower, sitting under the front bumper and fascia. This...

The receiver will sit about an inch back from the most forward part of your grill and will be just about even with your skid plate for ground clearance.

  • Front Mount Hitch for 1999 Dodge Ram With Steering Box Stabilizer
  • The Draw-Tite # 65003 will almost certainly not work for you because the directions indicate it would interfere with where you said your steering box stabilizer is installed. The Curt # 31604 might work, though without knowing the exact location of your stabilizer it would be difficult to give you a definitive answer. I have linked the directions of the Curt hitch for you which detail how it is installed and taking a look at these directions should allow you to determine if the stabilizer...

  • Front-Mount Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Diesel 4x4 for Use with Electric Winch
  • I recommend Draw-Tite front-mount 2-inch hitch # 65063 for your son-in-law's 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel 4x4 so long as the truck has tow hooks. If not, then instead use Curt hitch # C31015. Either will enable use of a hitch-type winch mount such as Draw-Tite # 6495. The winch mount can be locked to the hitch using pin lock # 7683. The Draw-Tite winch mount works great with winches from Warn, Superwinch and Ramsey, among others, including the Super-Winch Heavy-Duty Recovery Winch # 1917...

  • Front Mounted Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier for 2017 Ram 3500
  • The Curt # C31067 front-mounted hitch that fits your 2017 Ram 3500 has a vertical load capacity of 500 lbs, as does the Draw-Tite # 65063 that fits your Ram so neither will allow you to haul a motorcycle that is 500 lbs. The Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier # MX600 is a high-quality motorcycle carrier though you would need to use the hitch on the rear of your Ram 3500 to carry a motorcycle that is at least 500 lbs with it; there won't be a way for you to haul that heavy a bike on...

This hitch offers no-drill installation unlike the other options from Curt, parts # C31069 and # C31012, but some plastic fascia trimming is often required to make room for the receiver tube.

  • Troubleshooting Installation of 2008 FJ Cruiser Front Mounted Hitch
  • With factory bolts, there is often thread locker or binding from time and debris. I recommend using a penetrating oil lubricant like # L10444 to work into the threading to allow you to loosen the nut. I recommend spraying the oil all the way around the nut only where it makes contact with the bolt and then using a wrench and mallet to add vibration to that nut. The vibration will help the oil get inside and loosen the hold. You may need to use a breaker bar to get the torque needed...

For your truck we do have two confirmed fits for front hitches, Curt # C31070 and Draw-Tite # 65067. Both offer identical weight ratings (500-lbs vertical load and 9000-lbs line pull) and both install without drilling. Both will require a bit of fascia trimming.

  • Recommended Front Mounted Hitch for 2011 Ford Expedition for Snow Plow Use

The 4 bolt mounting is not uncommon for these front mounted hitches that use a snow plow and they do hold up very well. This particular hitch is also a fit for the Ford F-150 tucks for the 2009-2014 model years, so they are made to take some extreme wear n tear as you stated. The hitch comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is rated to hold 500 lbs and pull 9,000 lbs.

  • Could Draw Tite Front Hitch # 65063 be Used for Recovering Vehicles Stuck in Winter Weather

  • Can Front Hitch on 2015 Ford F-150 Carry a Bike Rack
  • While carrying bikes on a bike rack in a front hitch isn't most peoples first choice it is very doable for your 2015 Ford F-150. Basically you have to keep in mind that it's going to add length to the front of truck, it might impair visibility somewhat, might make your headlights less effective, and it might make your turn signals less visible. I like the additional crossmember bracing that the Draw Tite # 65067 has over the Curt so it would be what I would go with.

The Draw Tite requires you to notch a couple inches out of the bottom of the air dam up front, but the Curt requires you to cut a hole a bit higher for the hitch to fit through.

  • Will a Front or Rear Mount Trailer Hitch have Better Ground Clearance on a 2012 Nissan Frontier
  • Draw-Tite front receiver # 65075 only fits the front of your 2012 Nissan Frontier. Since it mounts with the receiver below the front fascia it does not offer a lot of ground clearance. In my opinion a rear mount hitch, # 75282, will provide better ground clearance because when installed the receiver will be right up under the rear bumper. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you.
