Best 2018 Ram 2500 Front Mount Hitch Options


Today we're taking a look at the best front mounted hitches available for the 2018 RAM 2500.Now we're gonna be looking at two hitches today. The first is gonna be from Draw-Tite. This is part number 65063. Then we have one from CURT. This is part number 31015.Now both of these hitches offer a lot of similarities like two inch by two inch receiver tube opening, 500lb tongue weight capacity, 9,000lb straight line pull, but the way they look on the front of your truck could not be different.The Draw-Tite is designed to fit into a slot on the bumper. You're gonna keep your tow hooks, just gives you a receiver tube opening right there in the middle.

Now the CURT on the other hand, it's designed to mount down and under your front bumper and fascia cover.Now an area where I think the Draw-Tite hitch is really gonna shine is in your accessory kind of items. Whether you've got a wench that you wanna install here to help with recovery, maybe a cargo carrier, spare tire carrier. I've also seen front mount hitches like this used to move trailers around yards. With your steer tires being real close to the ball mount here, you can turn it much more quickly.Down here where our CURT hitch is gonna be mounted, our receiver tube opening's gonna be right here. We'll have to trim this panel here just a little bit, but I think that's gonna be more suited when it comes to plowing snow.

With a receiver tube style snow plow, that's closer to the right area and where you want that receiver tube opening to be, rather than up here. I think this is gonna be ideal for most situations, but when it comes to plowing snow, I think the CURT's gonna be the better option.Now of course with the hitches being located in two different areas, we're gonna use two different installation processes. The Draw-Tite is gonna use the attachment points for your tow hooks in the front. They're pretty easy to get to here on the outside. The two inner bolts, you'll have to get your hand kind of squeezed in there.

It's gonna offer you a little bit of a challenge, but it's not all that difficult. With the CURT, we're gonna be using the bumper mount bolts, kind of down and underneath there. You're gonna be removing two and you'll need to fish wire in a wire from the side. Again, that's not a huge challenge, it's gonna be a little tight in a couple spots, but overall it's gonna take you about the same amount of time to install either one.So really to make your decision on which one's gonna be the right one for you, is what you're gonna be doing with it. If you're gonna be using accessories, go with the Draw-Tite.

If you're gonna be using a snow plow, go with the CURT.That's gonna complete our look at the best front mounted hitches available for the RAM 2500.
