Can Front-Mount Hitch Be Installed On 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 With Grille Guard Installed  


I have a 2011 F-250 4x4 with a Ranch Hand Legend Grill Guard and am contemplating a front mounted bike carrier. Is there an option that would work well yet still allow for the grill guard to stay in place?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I did some research and found instructions for installing the RanchHand Legend Grille Guard on your 2011 F-250 4x4. You can check out the attached photo that shows where a front hitch is mounted on a Ford F-250. You may find that the bottom bar on your grille guard interferes with being able to install a front mount trailer hitch like part # 65049.

I have attached the installation instructions for the 65049 you can take a look at. The instructions do note which frame holes are to be used for the hitch. The instructions for the grille guard did not have any drawings that would indicate which holes in the frame are used. They may be using the holes the trailer hitch needs and that would pose fit issues as well.
