Recommended Front Mount Hitch and Kayak Carrier for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500


Hi there. I have a 2019 Silverado 2500. Want to secure my kayak using a front hitch and carrier. Do you have these for my truck?


Expert Reply:

Starting with the front hitch for your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 I recommend the Draw-Tite # 65078 because it won't reduce the truck's ground clearance at all. Unlike the Curt alternative the hitch receiver on this unit will protrude through the front fascia instead of sitting below the bumper. I have attached an image to clarify this. The hitch features a 500 pound vertical load limit.

I have also attached an installation video that you can use for reference.

Then to secure your kayak I recommend taking a look at the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier # DTA944-968-924. This system includes both a hitch-mounted extension piece and a universal-fit single crossbar that you can mount to the truck's roof. One foam block is included and tie-down straps can be added with part # RRRBAS-RTD55P-RTD45P.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this system so you can see exactly how it works.
