  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch you referenced, part # 65063, does indeed protrude through the bumper.

I spoke with my source at Draw-Tite and found that when installed, the end of the receiver protruding through the bumper is 6-3/4 inches from the face of the mounting plate. I have included an illustration showing this information. As per the included installation instructions,...

  • How to Move and Park a Trailer without Using a Vehicle
  • I do have a solution for you but there are no front mount trailer hitches available for the 2003 Honda Element. What I recommend is a Trailer Valet XL trailer dolly such as # TVXL2 which has a 2 inch ball or # TVXL25 which has a 2-5/16 inch ball. 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...

  • The highest capacity front hitch we offer for your 2015 Ford F-350 is the part # 65049 that has a vertical pull rating of 500 lbs. The best solution I could provide for you would be the motorcycle carrier part # MX600 that has a 600 lb capacity and has a shipping weight of 65 lbs. When out of the packaging it should be right at 60 lbs, but for safety's sake you could load the ramp of the carrier in the bed of your truck to save weight from the front hitch.

  • 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...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Ford Ranger for a Snow Plow
  • For the 2001 Ford Ranger we have 2 options for front mount trailer hitches. Between the Draw-Tite, # 65024, that you have referenced, and the Curt, # C31063, I recommend the Draw-Tite for a few reasons. First, the Draw-Tite hitch has a higher vertical line pull capacity (500 pounds) than the Curt hitch (350 pounds). Both hitches are rated for 9,000 pounds straight line pull but remember to check the vehicle owners manual and stay within the limits of the truck. The Draw-Tite hitch...
