  • Yes, the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31068 will fit your 2011 Ford F-150 so you're safe!

  • Is Ground Clearance Reduced with Front Mount Hitch Installed on a 2015 Chevy Suburban
  • As far as ground clearance goes for your 2015 Chevy Suburban you will want to use the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31073 over the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65064 because the instructions call for you to cut the front fascia whereas the Draw-Tite instructions fort of hint that you may not need to.

Since not all vehicles will sit at the exact height it's easier to determine the exact ground clearance you'd have by taking the 1.3 inches and subtracting it from the clearance you currently have.

  • Effect on Engine & Transmission Temperature from Using Front Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier
  • Using a front hitch like Curt # C31078 along with a hitch carrier like # C18153 is a great way to add cargo capacity when your truck bed and rear hitch are already spoken for. The cargo items you describe wanting to load in a front-hitch-mounted cargo carrier - a tool box, generator and gas cans - all could present a lot of flat surface area that could block air flow. Some generators like # 333-0005 have an open-frame design while others such as # 333-0002 have enclosures that would...

  • Front Hitch for 2018 Toyota Tacoma That Allows Skid Shield to Remain Installed
  • The front-mount hitch that best meets your requirements is the Draw-Tite # 65070. This will allow you to re-install your skid shield after you bolt on the hitch. I recommend this model also because it offers a higher vertical load capacity of 500-lbs, as compared to the Curt # C31075 which is rated for only 350-lbs. The no-drill installation is shown in the linked video and the clean appearance after installation can be seen in the included photo. A front-mount hitch is a great...

  • The installion instructions for the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65049 do not require that the front lower bumper spoiler be removed therefore yes, I believe you can leave it in position while you install the trailer hitch. The process of removing the front lower bumper spoiler was done to give our viewers a better look at what was going on which is why it was removed in the video.

  • You are correct, the metal skid plate on the 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 needs to be removed when installing the front mount hitch part # C31063. The metal skid plate will not be re-installed. After doing research on OEM metal skid plates on a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 you will need to remove the skid plate to see if there is a crossmember present. There is a chance the metal skid plate will cover the crossmember if your vehicle came with one. I have attached a photo of what the crossmember...

  • Front Mount Hitch for 2017 Ram 1500
  • We have not had a chance to test fit either front-mount hitch that fits your 2017 Ram 1500 4WD - the Curt # 31374 or the Draw-Tite # 65062 - on a '17 model so there is not an exact distance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch available. However, the installation will have you trim a 7-1/2" W x 1" H space from the bottom of your truck's fascia and will protrude roughly 2" from the bottom of your bumper fascia. What you can do is use this to measure from the ground and stop 2" to 3"...

It sounds like you have the 2016 Ford E-350 Super Duty Cutaway chassis which has been turned into a passenger bus, which you can confirm either through the paperwork you have or by calling your local Ford dealer with your VIN. If this is indeed what you have there is a custom-fit front-mount trailer hitch, the Draw-Tite...

  • Easiest Front Hitch Installation on 2014 Ford F-150
  • Curt front hitch # C31068 and Draw-Tite front hitch # 65061 do indeed look very similar and this is because both are custom-fit products made specifically for your 2014 F-150. Since they both install at the same factory mounting points they will necessarily resemble one another pretty closely. They also share identical weight ratings. This design similarity also means that the installation processes will be pretty much the same. Both hitches will need you to remove the lower front air...

  • Recommended Front Hitch Receiver for 2011 Four Winds Chateau on Ford E-450 Cutaway Chassis
  • For your 2011 Ford E-450 Cutaway RV frame the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65053 is the correct front mounted hitch. This is a simple bolt on assembly that is estimated to take about 1-1/2 hours to complete. It does require trimming of an underbody panel in a couple of places which is part of that time estimate. I've attached the installation instructions and a video to assist. The # 65049 you asked from will not fit your motorhome.

For your hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65063 which will attach at the tow hooks of your Ram.

Therefore, you will need to choose between a front mount hitch or grille guard for your Toyota Tacoma.

  • Can Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65078 be Used to Mount Snow Plow on 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65078 referenced in your question can absolutely be used with a hitch-mounted snow plow such as the Detail K2 Avalanche # K2AVAL8422. In fact I actually recommend using this particular hitch over the Curt because it's going to give you a bit more ground clearance to work with when it's installed since the receiver will protrude through an opening you cut in the fascia instead of directly below it.

  • Front Mount Hitch for a 1998 Ford F-150 That Retains Tow Hooks

The reason for this is that the Draw-Tite hitch installs between the two frame rails and a chance for interference with the tow hooks is possible whereas the Curt hitch installs underneath the frame rails and there is not a chance for interference.

Between these two hitches I recommend the Draw-Tite # 65030 because it does not require drilling into your '02 Sport Trac to install, while the option from Curt does. This hitch has a 9,000 lb line pull capacity and 300 lb vertical load, which is important in your case because it is the maximum amount your cargo carrier and cargo can weigh. This is a 2"...

  • What is Required to Install the Curt Front Hitch C31083 on a 2018 Ford Expedition
  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31083 will require a slight trimming of the lower plastic bumper fascia but there will be no drilling or alterations that will be needed on the vehicle's frame. The trimming of the lower plastic bumper fascia is needed to allow for the receiver tube opening to poke through which you can see in the attached photo on a similar truck. The brackets install using pre-drilled holes in the frame rail. This means that no warranties will be voided.

  • Line Pull Capacity of Draw Tite Front Hitch # 65053 Compared to Trailer Capacity
  • Line pull for a front hitch like the Draw Tite part # 65053 is basically the rolling weight capacity of what it could move without the presence of an incline. So if you have a rolling load on level ground pulled straight (no side-to-side angling) to the hitch it could be up to 9,000 lbs. If you needed to maneuver a trailer around with the front hitch it would have to weigh less than 5,000 lbs.

Once you install the hitch you will need to measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer hitch receiver.

  • 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...

  • Does Factory Hardware on 1999 Dodge Ram Need to Removed for Front Mount Hitch Installation
  • Are the bolts you're referring to in the same hole the hitch uses for its front fasteners? Sometimes they will be there from the factory but not always. If this is what you're referring to then yes they need to be removed to install the front hitch # 65003. If they're not in that location can you send me a picture of the bolts you're referring to?

  • Will Draw-Tite Front Hitch # 65061 Interfere with Skid Plate on 2011 F-150 with Off Road Package
  • I spoke with my contact at Draw-Tite and he said that installation of the Front Mount Hitch # 65061 will require modification or complete removal of the skid plates that are a part of the Off Road Package for your 2011 Ford F-150. Keep in mind that the hitch will essentially take the place of the factory skid plate and serve the same purpose (protecting the oil pan). The need for modification or removal of the skid plate will be the same with the Curt # C31068 that is also available...

  • Recommended Front Hitch for 2018 Toyota Tundra
  • The Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31198 and the Draw-Tite # 65080 for your 2018 Toyota Tundra are indeed just about identical in terms of their capacities and where they will mount on the truck. One thing that does differentiate the two models, and the reason I recommend the Curt, is the fact that the Curt # 31198 is made right here in the USA while the Draw-Tite hitch is made overseas. The Curt hitches are also known for their unique powder coat application which ensures a rust free hitch...

  • 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.

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500

This hitch has a 2 inch receiver which will work with the 2 inch mount of your scooter carrier and if you have the factory tow hooks on your truck installing this hitch will allow...

The instructions do call for you to remove or trim the lower air dam fascia, which is a normal procedure for front mount hitches, but aside from that you won't have to modify anything on your pickup. Attached are the installation instructions as well as a sample picture of this installed on a 2015 Silverado for you to reference.

  • Will Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Reduce Ground Clearance on a 2018 Ford F-150
  • The good news is that neither the Curt # C31083 or the Draw-Tite # 65067 front mount trailer hitches will reduce the ground clearance on your 2018 Ford F-150. If you want a receiver that sits above the lowest piece of fascia then the Curt requires that a square hole be cut in the front fascia and it sticks straight through. The Draw-Tite sits a little lower and just requires that a notch be cut out at the bottom of the fascia, but the bottom of the receiver sits about level with the...

  • All of the front hitches we offer for your 2018 Ram 1500 like the Draw Tite part # 65062 do require trimming of the front fascia. The trimming allows the hitch to sit a little bit higher so that you get slightly better ground clearance. Front hitches typically aren't classified but this hitch is a 2 inch size like a Class III normally is and has higher capacities too at 9,000 lb line pull and 500 lb vertical load.

  • Can the Draw-Tite Front Hitch Receiver for a 2016 Ram 1500 Move 3,000 lb Boat Trailer

I recommend using a cover like the Draw-Tite QSP # 63080 or Skid Shield # 6771 to help protect the front receiver when not in use. If you use the skid shield then I also recommend using a locking hitch pin like part # 7683 to help deter theft.

  • Curt Front Hitch 31109 Compatibility with Minute Man 2 Snow Plow Mount
