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. Now it's a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening, so this is also going to work out really well with a lot of the class 3 accessories out there.

Our ground clearance is going to remain just about the same, the hitch is going to remain just about completely hidden up here behind our bumper. Great thing about the install process, it uses all the factory mounting locations so we don't have to drill any holes, you don't have to make any modifications to our truck. It's going to leave us with our 2" by 2" receiver tube opening. These are going to work out really, really well for front mounted winches, for your snow plows, some people will put a cargo carrier on the front, a bike rack on the front, if they need to maximize their carrying capacity, so it's going to be pretty versatile.

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the best front hitch options for the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. We'll start with the Draw-Tite here. This is part number 65068, and we'll follow that up with the Curt, part number C31023. Now, both of these hitches are going to offer a 2" x 2" receiver tube opening that will be available to us at the front of our vehicle. Most typical applications are going to be for mounting a winch in there potentially. Sometimes people like to use spare tire racks off the front of the vehicle, also comes in handy for the snow plow applications. If you don't want to make major modifications to the front of the truck, you can get snow plows that'll fit in here. Now, the hitches are very, very similar in that, again, they've got the 2" x 2" receiver tube opening.

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.

  • Comparison Between Draw-Tite and Curt Front Hitch for 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch you referenced, part # 65063, does indeed protrude through the bumper. Based on your email stating the use of a winch, and ground clearance concerns, my recommendation would be this hitch. 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,...

  • Can a Dirt Bike and Carrier be Carried on the Front of a 2015 Ford F-150
  • The receiver on the Draw-Tite front mount hitch # 65067 is plenty long enough for the shank of a dirt bike carrier. And it is open at the back so if there wasn't anything behind the hitch (which there will be since it is mounted on a vehicle!) a long enough shank could go all the way through. I would not worry about the carrier clearing the front of the truck either because dirt bike carriers stick out pretty far. And when this hitch is installed on a 2015 Ford F-150 the face of the...

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 2006 H3 Hummer
  • If you are looking to flat tow your 2006 Hummer H3 you are going to need several components that we offer, but a front mount hitch is not designed to be flat towed with. Instead, you will want a base plate kit like our Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 2505-1. This will provide the attachment point for your vehicle so that it can be towed. Next, you will need a set of tow bars. I recommend the Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar # RM-576, this tow bar comes with safety cables, lighting wiring...

  • Is it Okay to Use Winch with More Capacity than Front Hitch of Vehicle for Recovery
  • If you were to be in a situation that would put all of the winches strength to use (which would be unlikely) it would end up damaging either your vehicle or the hitch. Now the likelihood of you being in a situation where you would be pulling 10k worth of force-and your Wrangler not moving to offset it would be pretty unlikely. The line pull of the part # 65069 is 9k which is pretty close to the capacity of a 10k winch and the winch mount part # BDW20155.

  • Is Ground Clearance Lost When Draw Tite Front Hitch 65067 is Installed on 2016 Ford F-150
  • You actually don't really lose any ground clearance when you have the front hitch part # 65067 installed on your 2016 Ford F-150. The lower air dam on the front of the truck gets trimmed out to allow the hitch to fit at basically the same height as the dam itself. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions to show this as well.

If the vehicle is rear wheel drive only, and has the 42RLE transmission a transmission lube pump is required. If the vehicle has an auto transmission other than the 42RLE the vehicle is not towable and will need to be trailered. If the vehicle is AWD without a nuetral position in the transfer case it is trailer...

Normally front hitches and grille guards can't fit together at the same time but this vehicle/setup happens to be an exception.

  • Wiring for Electric Winch at the Front and Rear of a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 Duramax
  • First, you are going to need a couple sets of quick disconnects such as # SW2236. You will need enough 2 to 4 gauge wire to reach from the front of the truck to the batteries and from the rear of the truck to the batteries. Another option is to get a couple of winch wiring kits, # SW2008. The winch power and ground wires will attach to one disconnect and the wiring to the batteries will attach to the mating quick disconnect. Diesel trucks normally have 2 batteries so the isolator...

  • Ground Clearance of Front Mounted Receiver Installed on 2009 Ram 1500 2WD
  • According to Curt, their # 31374 front mounted receiver isn't recommended for 2WD models because of their lower ride height. My Curt representative also told me that there might be differences in the front suspension members that would interfere with the hitch. The Draw-Tite # 65062 which is indeed very similar to the Curt model will sit so that the underside of the receiver tube will sit about 1-3/4 inches below the bottom of the bottom of the bumper fascia. In Draw-Tite's opinion,...

  • Front Hitch Comparison for a 2016 Ford F-250 4x4
  • We have two options for front hitches for your 2016 Ford F-250 4x4, but I think the best is the Draw Tite part # 65049 as it has the best price by a large margin and has a much better price than the Curt competitor part # C31018. 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...

I have attached 2 photos showing this hitch mounted on two different F150 trucks for you. For 1999 and newer 4WD F-150, F-250 LD and Expedition models, remove lower fascia. For 1997-1998 4WD F-150, F-250 LD and Expedition models without tow hook option, lower fascia must be removed or trimmed for receiver tube clearance. If trimming is required you...

  • Winch Recommendation for a 2006 Dodge Ram and Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch
  • We carry Superwinch winches of various capacities. I have included a link to the available options for you. What really matters is what capacity you need. It is always better than go with an overrated winch rather than one that is rated just high enough. An overrated winch will not have to work as hard and the winch will last longer. The Talon series are the top of the line models and the Tiger Shark series are more entry level. You can get a 15.5k capacity Tiger Shark, # SW1515200,...

  • 2014 Tundra Front Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Tundra
  • I believe I have an ideal solution for you, check out the Curt Front Hitch # 31198, this front hitch allows you to retain your factory skid plate and would not have to be removed to change the oil. Check out the picture I attached that shows this hitch installed on a Tundra with the skid plate still intact. The Draw Tite Front Mount Hitch # 65051 that you referenced would need to be removed for oil changes.

  • Does Front Fascia/Skid Plate Need to be Removed To Install Curt Front-Mount Hitch on 2001 Ford F-150
  • The item you selected Curt Front-Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 31038, does not require trimming or removal of fascia to be installed. You will have to remove or trim the skid plate to install. The tow hooks will also need to be removed to install Curt Front-Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver and then are re-installed. The Curt Front-Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 31038, will only fit the 4-wheel drive model F-150. If you have a 2-wheel drive model, you will need Draw-Tite Front...

  • Does Front Air Damn have to be Permanently Removed to Install Font Receiver on 2016 Nissan Frontier
  • Yes, you will need to permanently remove the front air dam on the 2016 Nissan Frontier in order to install either of the front mount hitches available for it; # 65075 or # 31241. In my opinion having to remove it rather than having to trim it is better because at least you still have the intact part should you ever need to put it back on.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1998 Lincoln Navigator
  • We do have a front mount hitch that fits the 1998 Lincoln Navigator but it is not # 31049. Instead you will need Draw-Tite hitch # 65025. This hitch has a 500 pound vertical pull capacity (tongue weight) so make sure the weight of the snow plow does not exceed that. Also make sure the front axle capacity is high enough for use with a plow.

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver and Winch Mount to Clear Bumper on a 2015 Ford F-150
  • I went out to the warehouse to take a measurement of Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65067 for your 2015 Ford F-150. It measures 9-1/2 inches from the cross tube to the end of the receiver. Compare that to the Curt hitch # C31070 that you have installed to determine if there is a difference. You could just need a different mount for the winch such as # C31010. I have linked a video showing the key dimensions and features and another video featuring this mount. There is also a version...

  • How to Determine Installed Hitch Height for the Curt Front Hitch part # C31070 on 2015 Ford F-150
  • I don't have an exact figure I can give you, but what you can do is check out the picture I attached that shows where this hitch will locate relative to the front end of your truck. You will need to find that same area on your truck and then measure down to the ground. Since different trucks have different heights based on suspension and wheel size even if I could give you a number it may not be exact for your vehicle.
