Front Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350

Question:

I am looking for a class III or IV front receiver hitch that has a 600lb tongue weight rating, to mount on the front of a 2015 Ford F350 4X4. I want to carry a 440lb motorcycle on it. Combined with a carrier that will weigh approx 90 lbs, a 500 lb tongues wieght hitch will not work.

Expert Reply:

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 # UF48-979033 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. This would be your setup right at 500 lbs for the front hitch.
