Front Mount Trailer Hitch Options for a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 LD


I need a front receiver for my 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 regular cab 4wd truck. It is a work truck model, 5 speed transmission 4.8L V8. My window sticker does not say it is a Sierra 1500HD, so I have to assume it is not an HD model. I like the Reese 65028, which is advertised to fit my non-HD truck, but every time I look at 65028 installation instructions online, the instructions are for an HD Sierra 1500. I have bought from etrailer before, and Ive always received the right part. What are my front receiver hitch choices for my truck? Thanks.

For a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500LD (light duty) you can use either Curt front mount # 31302 or Draw-Tite # 65023. I have linked the instructions for both of these hitches for you to view. We show # 65028 as only fitting the HD models.
