2013 Dodge Durango

One problem with the front of many vehicles is the inability to find an attachment point, whether for the front of a canoe on your roof or for a tow strap. A solution is to install a front hitch receiver with or without tow loops. A front hitch receiver then offers the ability to install a variety of other helpful devices such as a winch or bike rack greatly increasing the utility of your vehicle.

I installed the Curt Front Hitch Receiver C31033 on the front of a 2013 Dodge Durango. I was happy with the results. Some points to note in this application are that the hitch receiver is completely hidden behind the front air dam requiring cutting a hole through the plastic molding to enable inserting a hitch or other device. Further, the tow loops, while accessible, are also completely behind the air dam, so unless you further cut openings for the tow loops, a straight line pull would push up on the air dam. The provided bumper trim diagram only indicates cutting access for the hitch receiver, not the tow loops.

Other observations during installation are that two of the "square hole spacers" had to be trimmed by 0.25" on one end due to a restriction inside the frame which otherwise would not allow the bolts to be aligned with the holes drilled in the required locations. Also, the trim diagram for the underbody panel supplied with the directions while detailed and specific, would not have worked in my application. I found it best to trim a little bit of plastic off at a time while fitting the panel in place multiple times to obtain a custom fit. Finally, plan on drilling at least one new attachment point for the underbody panel due to restrictions introduced by the hitch receiver.

Still working out fine. While no fault of the front hitch mount, when mounted on the 2013 Durango, it is closer to the ground than desired and devices ed in the receiver may rub the ground when driving into steep driveways etc.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Fit perfect, only problem i had was finding someone to do it. [moving company] wouldnt just let u know. Found a shop that installs snow plows that did it. Took them 2 1/2 hours

2012 Dodge Durango

The only problem was in the unreal expectation of a quick installation. I took this to a mechanic in my parish - it took him three hours working with an assistant. But it looks fine! Installed on a 1012 Durango CREW.

Did you trim the end of the hitch or is that where it sits from the factory flush with the bumper? Also how far under the buper is the hitch pin? Thanks
-- comment by: Dan - 05/15/2014
Dan, I did not trim the hitch. It does sit that flush with the front bumper. The hitch pin is reachable from your knees, but is hard to use unless you connectdisconnect a lot. You can easily see the holes if you are willing to get on the ground. It is a great addition. It gets a lot of looks when I leave the ball on the front . I would definitely buy one again - in fact I am looking for one for a 2014 JEEP Cherokee Trailhawk... hint, hint.

It’s was the worst purchase I ever did. I never got stuff and never got answers on any of my questions.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Hitch does the job as advertised.

It’s working as it’s a good product including the electrical harness.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I purchased this Tow Hitch because it was compatible with my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. And it was supposed to be very easy to install. However, I was unable to do so on my own.
I tried to get a trailer shop to install the hitch, and had no luck at all.
Finally with pure luck, I found a U-Haul shop that would install. The installation took 1.65 hours ($165.00) plus tax. I should have done better homework and first time an installer before buying the hitch.
The installation was neatly done by U-Haul, however, I surely did not expect to have two spend another $165.00 to have it installed.
I have not tried the hitch as of now, but it looks solid and for my purposes it will be perfect.
I will use this front hitch to put my 18.5 Cobia CC in/out of the water.


Exceeded expectations.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Product fits perfectly and I'm sure will work well with a load extender for transporting long loads, snow plow attachment and " backing" trailers with my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Installation was a bit challenging. I used a small hole saw to make selected mounting holes big enough to "snake in" hardware. Just a bit more time consuming for me than advertised, but final result is perfect. As always, shipping and customer service from etrailer was excellent!


Great product reasonable price simple installation I did mine in the garage with no problem at all perfect match for my vehicle


Customer centric team and quick deliver y.
