Now this front mount hitch is typically going to be used for a front mount style wench, maybe a front mount snow plow or even some maneuvering of trailers around your yard potentially. Some people like to put a ball mount here and then get greater maneuverability with their trailer and kind of move it around without having to get two or three people together to kind of push it.

Best 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Front Hitch Options

Today we're going to be taking a look at the best front hitch options for you 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. Up top we've got the Curt, part number C31071. Then on the bottom we got the Draw Tite, part number 65068. The biggest difference that we're going to see between these two hitches is going to be when mounted on the truck where the receiver tube is going to be located. On the Draw Tite, it's going to give us a higher ground clearance, and it's going to come further out towards the front of the bumper, so it's going to give us more clearance with our accessories away from that front bumper. We've got a Curt mounted on this truck here and as you can see it comes out nicely underneath the fascia to where it's tucked up tight. The Draw Tite would come out up here right about the center of the license plate bracket, and so if you do have a license plate on the front of your truck, it would need to be relocated. There are a couple of different options. You can get the Draw Tite fixed bracket, part number 5443, or the Draw Tite fold down license plate bracket, part number 8802. There's going to be benefits to each hitch, because of where they come out, and the clearance that they give us depending on the accessories that you're going to be using.

I have included an illustration showing this information. As per the included installation instructions,...

These are two-speed dollies that will allow you to accurately move and position the trailer, even by yourself, without having to use a vehicle. Depending on the length of your driveway you would probably want to use low gear. To make it easier...

  • Front Hitch Comparison for a 2016 Ford F-250 4x4

The only advantage the Curt has is that you can flip the cross tube around so that you can have the hitch opening up higher or down lower. The Draw Tite keeps the hitch opening low. I attached a picture of what the hitch will look like once installed on a similar...

  • Can a Front Mount Trailer Hitch and Westin Bull Bar be Installed Together on a 2009 GMC Sierra 1500
  • The issue is that bull bars, grille guards, base plates, and front mount trailer hitches all attach to basically the same place on the vehicle frame and/or occupy much of the same space in front of the vehicle. What this means is you could have one at a time only. But that might not be the case on your 2009 GMC Sierra 1500.

  • Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitches for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • It all depends on your 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 is a light duty or a heavy duty. If it is a light duty then I give the edge to Curt, # 31302, because their powder coating holds up well and the hitch is made in the USA. If you have a 1500HD then Draw-Tite hitch # 65028 is more popular but again I would give the edge to Curt # 31108 for the same reasons described above. I have linked videos showing example installations of both hitches for you. In either case both the Curt and Draw-Tite...
