Front hitches have different weight capacity listings so both numbers are correct. The Curt Hitch part # 31038 does have a straight line pull rating of 9,000 lbs and a gross trailer capacity of 5,000 lbs. So if you have a rolling load on level ground pulled straight (no side-to-side angling) to the hitch it could be up to 9,000 lbs.

If you needed to maneuver a trailer around with the front hitch it would have to weigh less than 5,000 lbs.
