  • 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...

  • Recommended Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65064 is the confirmed fit for your 2017 Silverado 1500 and will work well for most applications including your cooler rack. There is not a customized receiver like you stated with two receivers on either side to support a cooler rack. There is not a manufacturer that makes a dual receiver like you are stating so my recommendation is to use this front mounted hitch with a cargo carrier. For your cargo carrier I recommend...

  • Front Hitch Needed for a 2000 Ford E-450
  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 33055 that you referenced fits Ford Vans (up to an E-350), but since your Chateau is on a 2000 Ford E-450 that is the Cab and Chassis so you would need to go with the Draw-Tite # 65022 which fits vehicles with a 34" wide frame. Installation instructions and a photo showing the mounting hole locations for the Curt option have been added for you to check out. I am doubtful that the Curt will fit but you can use the photo to check your vehicle...

  • Does Draw Tite Front Hitch # 65032 Fit 2005 Mercury Mountaineer
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 65032 is a confirmed fit for your 2005 Mercury Mountaineer. I am not totally sure what you mean by, "any loss" but if you mean ground clearance loss then you'd lose a couple inches since this fits below the front bumper and is a 2 inch hitch.

  • Does Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31078 Affect Ground Clearance On 2018 Ford F-250
  • 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.

This is confirmed to fit your truck and will provide you with a 2 inch receiver opening and a 500 pound vertical load limit.

  • Front Hitch Receiver Compatibility with a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and the CURT Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # C31051 is a fit for the frame, but they said the bumper may need some modification to fit because that was slightly different on the Mountaineer from the Explorer. This is the best option for your vehicle and your plow. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65032 for the 2002 thru 2005 model you referenced is not a fit for your frame.

  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31083 and the Draw-Tite # 65067 are extremely similar hitches that are both confirmed to fit your 2018 Ford F-150. Both hitches will mount to the same locations on the truck's frame and feature identical 500 pound vertical load and 900 pound line pull ratings. Between these two options I recommend going with the Curt simply because it will offer a slightly better ground clearance dimension. The hitch receiver on this model will protrude a bit further...

  • Both the Curt Front Hitch # 31313 and the Draw-Tite Front Hitch # 65070 are confirmed to fit your 2014 Tacoma 4x4 but I definitely recommend the Draw-Tite for its higher 500-lb vertical load weight rating and because it allows re-installation of the skid shield which is not possible with the Curt. If you're intending to use a hitch-mount snow plow like the Detail K2 Avalanche # K2AVAL8219 or a hitch cargo carrier like # 63153 or any other potentially heavy item you might want to consider...

Either one will be a great choice for you so if you are more loyal to Curt over Draw-Tite you would still be getting a great product.

  • Hitch Extender for Front Mount Hitch on 2008 Nissan Xterra
  • Yes, you can use a hitch extender such as the 7" Extender # HE06 with the Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31514 on your 2008 Nissan Xterra. 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. There may also be some extra motion...

I have attached a photo that shows how the hitch will mount so you can compare that to how your brush guards mounts and determine compatibility. However, we have not yet tested this hitch so I would not able to inform you of its compatibility with an aftermarket brush guard.

  • Can 2017 Ram 1500 Have Bull Bar and Front Hitch Installed
  • Basically you'd have to pick either keeping your Aries Bull Bar or installing the Draw Tite hitch part # 65062. If you wanted to get creative MAYBE there would be a way to instal both. But most likely it wouldn't work and if so you'd end up voiding the warranties of both the hitch and bull bar. What's also interesting is that you said you have a Rebel model which Aries specifically says does not fit with their bull bars like the part # AAB35-5005.

You will need to enlarge a hole in the skid plate to allow the install of this hitch while also allowing easy access to the oil filter. If you check out the install video I attached for this hitch you'll see how to do this. I also attached a picture of a diagram that shows where the 4 inch hole needs to be.

  • 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 K2 # K2AVAL8219. 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 # K2AVAL8219. 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 a carrier then we have the MaxxTow Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 which would work well. For tie downs we then have the part # EM05710.

  • 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.
