Yes, you can use a front mounted trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # 31374 on your 2014 Dodge Ram 4 x 4 for a bike rack. This hitch offers a 2 inch receiver so I have included a link to all of the bike racks that will work with the 2 inch opening. If you would like to send me an email with the number and styles of bikes that you are looking to transport, I would be happy to make some specific recommendation for you.

For example, if you are looking to transport just two bicycles, I suggest taking a look at the Swagman XC Platform Style Bike Rack, # S64650. This rack secures the bikes at 3 different points, accommodates most bikes regardless of design, and it is great for children's bikes.

Please keep in mind that hauling bikes on the front of your truck can reduce driver visibility, air flow to the motor, and block your front lights so you will want to use caution.
