Trimming Needed to Install Front-Mounted Hitch 65049 on 2009 Ford F-250 4x4  


Recently purchased a Curt 65409 from etrailer and need to know how much of the front air dam has to be trimmed in order to accept the protruding section of the receiver. My truck is a 2009 F250 Super Duty 4X4 Lariat model. Thanks for your help.

You mentioned the hitch being from Curt, but I believe you were referencing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65049.

Thank you for purchasing this hitch from us, and in regards to the amount of trimming you'll have to do on your 2009 Ford F-250 4x4, there isn't a set amount as the air dam can be slightly different sizes. So you'll want to take take some measurements before doing the install to see the amount you'll need to trim; I wouldn't want to give you an approximation and have that be too much, which is why I recommend going ahead and measuring.

I have added a link below to a video install for you to check out as well of an install on a 2009 F-250 of the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65049.
