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.

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.

I'm considering adding a motorcycle hitch to the front of a pickup that already has a camper in the bed and Airbags to help level back out (rear only). What do I need to do the the front end suspension to compensate for the added weight? Its got coil springs in the front. 97008

Depending on your vehicle we may have front end suspension enhancement that will help out. You can use our fitguide to see what kind of options are available for your vehicle. It's also worth noting that you'll want to make sure you're staying under the GCWR of your vehicle (should be located on sticker in door jamb). Suspension enhancement is just meant to help support the suspension of a vehicle and doesn't actually add weight capacity. 72594

Looking for front hitch motorcycle carrier for Ford F350 2019. Weight of the motorcycle Kawasaki Sherpa 250 is 120-130 kg. 77899

For the carrier itself the MaxxTow # MT70101 is a great option that sports a 400 pound weight capacity and 7" track width for the tires. If you don't yet have a front hitch on your F-350 the Draw-Tite # 65076 will work perfectly. 63420
