  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Recommendation for a 2019 Toyota Tacoma
  • I recommend using the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65070 for your 2019 Toyota Tacoma because it has the highest weight ratings which indicates a stronger hitch. This has a 2" receiver and is a custom fit so it doesn't require drilling into your frame like some front mount trailer hitches do. Please note that the front air dam will have to be removed and remain off the vehicle and the splash guard will need to be trimmed. The skid shield will be removed for hitch installation...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Front-Mount Trailer Hitches for 2019 Chevy Suburban
  • There are two main differences between the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65064 and Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31073 that fit your 2019 Chevy Suburban. One is that the Curt does NOT fit Suburban models with the Z71 Package while the Draw-Tite fits all models. Second is that the Curt hitch requires drilling into the vehicle's frame for installation while the Draw-Tite does not; because of this I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 65064 front mount hitch (pictured) for...

  • Steel Thickness of Curt Front Mount Receiver Hitch # 31367
  • I went out to our warehouse and measured the thickness of the steel on the Curt Front Mount Hitch Receiver # 31367 with a digital caliper. The steel on the crosstube measured 0.255 inch thick and the steel on the mounting brackets are 0.342 inch thick. The tow hooks themselves have a 1/2 inch diameter. I have attached an image to assit. I have not heard of a customer modifying this particular hitch so that it fits your 2003 Toyota 4Runner so I am not sure what that process would...

  • Do Front Tow Hooks Need to be Removed to Install Front Mount Trailer Hitch on 2018 Ram 1500
  • While you should be able to keep the factory tow hooks of your 2018 Ram 1500 when installing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65062 there is no way to know for certain until the install. The linked installation manual requires you to loosen the bolts that attach your Ram's tow hooks to your bumper, slide the hitch in between the frame and the tow hook, and then reinstall the tow hooks with the hitch in place. That said, there is also a note which says there is a known...

  • Draw-Tite front hitch # 65067 and the USA-made Curt # C31083 are both confirmed fits for your 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat Super Crew HD FX4. Both hitches share the same weight ratings and bolt on to the same mounting points for a no-drill installation.

I also linked a photo sent in by one of our customers which shows the underside view against the front bumper fascia. These should give you a sense...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2017 E450 Chassis Winnebago Minnie Winnie
  • The Draw Tite front hitch part # 65063 is confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Winnebago Minnie Winnie that is built on a 2017 Ford E-450 chassis. 400 lb is a lot of weight to put on a front hitch but this hitch is rated for 500 lbs of vertical weight. As long as the axle capacity of your RV isn't exceeded you would be fine.

  • Front Mount Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-250

This hitch has a 2" receiver and will work great as a way for you to use a bike rack while you are towing your 5th wheel. I have added a link to an install of this hitch on a F-250 for you to...

  • Do the Bolts in the Oblong Holes Need to be Removed for Draw-Tite Front Hitch 65003 on a 1999 Ram
  • The two bolts you are referring to in the oblong holes on your 1999 Dodge Ram will need to be removed in order to install the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65003. If you take a look at step 3 in the attached instructions it states, "If present, remove any fastener in the forward attachment hole on vehicle". This is just simply referring to the bolts in the oblong holes that you mentioned. I called my contact at Draw-Tite to confirm this.

  • Can the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver be Used with a Meyer HomePlow SnowPlow
  • Yes, the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65029 will allow you to use a Meyer HomePlow SnowPlow on your 2002 Dodge Durango. Once you install the hitch you will need to measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer hitch receiver. As long as this distance is between 10" and 13" then you will be good to go but if not you will also need to use a rise/drop adapter until the above is achieved. This is all laid out in the owner's manual for your HomePlow.

  • Can the Loops on a Front Mount Hitch be Used for Vehicle Recovery
  • Yes, the front loops on the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 31367 can be used for vehicle recovery up to 9,000 lbs. In fact, this is actually what they are designed for. This hitch will be a direct fit for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser and will not require any drilling. If you ever need to pull yourself out you can also attach a winch like the ComeUp Cub Winch w/ Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches part # CU123933. I have attached a photo of the finished product for you as well.

  • 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...

It does NOT fit the extended cab 4-door. This USA-made 2-inch hitch has a 500-lb vertical load rating and a 9000-lb line pull rating. It also features a heavy-duty powder coat finish.

  • 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
  • To carry your scooter on the front of your 2018 Ram 3500 I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31067 because it has a 500 lb vertical load to support the approximately 320 lbs of weight you need to haul and is a bolt-on installation that will not require you to drill into the frame of your '18 Ram. 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...

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver for a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 That Does Not Require Drilling
  • Yes! The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65064 does not require any drilling in the frame of your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 for the installation. 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.

In terms of the installation it is likely that you will need to enlarge the holes in order to get the 1/2 inch spacer blocks to fit in the frame, even though this is not specifically mentioned in the directions. If you go to about the 1:50 mark of the linked installation...

  • 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...

They both have a 9,000 lb line pull and 500 lb vertical load weight capacity. They also both install using three holes on each side.

  • Does Draw Tite Hitch for 2018 Ram 1500 Require Trimming Fascia
  • 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
  • As long as the tongue weight of your 3,000 lb boat trailer doesn't exceed the 500 lb tongue weight rating of the Draw-Tite # 65062 then this will work great for your 2016 Ram 1500. 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

There could be a certain combination of hitch and plow that might avoid this common-mounting-point issue but it is unlikely since both items need a very strong mounting point on the vehicle in order to function.

  • Front Hitch Comparison and Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-250
  • There are two front hitch options we have for your 2018 Ford F-250 which are very similar. We have the Draw Tite part # 65076 and the Curt # C31078 which are both really great options. The big differences are that the Draw Tite will stick out past the air dam a bit more than the Curt. Also the Curt is made in the USA. I attached a picture that shows where the Curt installs relative to the air dam. I would go with the Curt for those reasons.

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2008 Dodge Ram 3500
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65063 is not a fit for your 2008 Dodge 3500. It will only fit 2010-2018 models. For your 2008, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65046 which is a fit and will give you a 500 lb vertical load rating and 9,000 lbs line pull rating. I've attached an installation video to assist.

  • Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Compatibility on 1985 Dodge B350 Van
  • There is not a custom fit trailer hitch for the front of your 1985 Dodge B350 Van. There is also not a hitch that can be mounted to a vehicle bumper safely as they are not rated for load weight. The RV bumpers are sometimes rated for weight so there are the receivers you mentioned, but they are restricted with the tongue weight and are definitely not a fit for your van. When used on the application intended they work well and have warranties for any issues. My recommendation is...

  • How to Easily Move Around a 7,000 Lb Travel Trailer

  • Front Mounted Trailer Hitch for an RV on a Ford E-450 Chassis
  • In order to determine which is the correct front mounted trailer hitch for your motorhome (if available), I would need to know either the year, make, model, and floor plan of your motorhome or the year, make, and model of the chassis your motorhome is on. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65022 is for a motorhome on a 1999 - 2007 Ford F-350, 450, and 550 cab and chassis which is not very common.

  • Snow Plow Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150
  • If you are concerned at all about truck frame stress from a front hitch install I would recommend you go with a plow setup that does not use a front hitch and instead uses a set of frame brackets. For that the SnowBear Mount Kit part # SB397-132 would be the mount you'd want and then for a plow you'd want the SnowBear Winter Wolf Part # SB324-167 and you'd be set. On a totally different vehicle we once saw a front hitch break when using a snow plow so I'd rather recommend a setup that uses...

  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31078, which is confirmed to fit your 2018 Ford F-250, will actually sit about level with the air dam on the truck meaning it won't change the ground clearance at all. When installing the hitch you will need to do some fascia trimming so that the receiver protrudes through the panel. I have attached an image of this hitch installed on the F-250 to clarify. I have also included the complete installation instructions that you can look through.

Please be aware that using any extender will reduce the capacity of the front-mount hitch by half. So the 350 lb vertical load (which is the same thing as tongue weight on a rear mount hitch) that the hitch is rated for would be reduced to 175 lbs meaning the most your bikes and rack could weigh is a combined 175 lbs.
