We'll get to that later, and show you how simple that really is.On the end of our receiver you'll find this nice, welded-on collar which helps improve the strength of the receiver opening, and also gives us a nice finished look.This hitch features a 500-pound max cargo carrying capacity, so if we're using a motorcycle carrier or a cargo carrier or bike rack that's how much weight will be forcing down on it.

Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ram 3500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 RAM 3500, we're gonna be taking a look at and I'm gonna show you how to install the Draw Tite front mount trailer hitch receiver, part number 65063.

Front Hitch Questions and Answers

  • How to Move and Park a Trailer without Using a Vehicle
  • I do have a solution for you but there are no front mount trailer hitches available for the 2003 Honda Element. What I recommend is a Trailer Valet XL trailer dolly such as # TVXL2 which has a 2 inch ball or # TVXL25 which has a 2-5/16 inch ball. These are two-speed dollies that will allow you to accurately move and position the trailer, even by yourself, without having to use a vehicle. Depending on the length of your driveway you would probably want to use low gear. To make it easier...

  • Comparison Between Draw-Tite and Curt Front Hitch for 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD
  • The Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch you referenced, part # 65063, does indeed protrude through the bumper. Based on your email stating the use of a winch, and ground clearance concerns, my recommendation would be this hitch. I spoke with my source at Draw-Tite and found that when installed, the end of the receiver protruding through the bumper is 6-3/4 inches from the face of the mounting plate. I have included an illustration showing this information. As per the included installation instructions,...

If the vehicle is rear wheel drive only, and has the 42RLE transmission a transmission lube pump is required. If the vehicle has an auto transmission other than the 42RLE the vehicle is not towable and will need to be trailered.

  • Front Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350
  • The highest capacity front hitch we offer for your 2015 Ford F-350 is the part # 65049 that has a vertical pull rating of 500 lbs. The best solution I could provide for you would be the motorcycle carrier part # UF48-979033 that has a 600 lb capacity and has a shipping weight of 65 lbs. When out of the packaging it should be right at 60 lbs, but for safety's sake you could load the ramp of the carrier in the bed of your truck to save weight from the front hitch. This would be your setup...

Another option is to get a couple of winch wiring kits, # SW2008.

  • Front Hitch Comparison for a 2016 Ford F-250 4x4
  • We have two options for front hitches for your 2016 Ford F-250 4x4, but I think the best is the Draw Tite part # 65049 as it has the best price by a large margin and has a much better price than the Curt competitor part # C31018. The only advantage the Curt has is that you can flip the cross tube around so that you can have the hitch opening up higher or down lower. The Draw Tite keeps the hitch opening low. I attached a picture of what the hitch will look like once installed on a similar...

  • Availability of Front Mounted Hitch Receiver for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
  • You bet we do! The Draw-Tite # 65078 and the Curt # C31023 front mount receivers are a fit for your 2015 Sierra 2500. The Draw-Tite model isn't a fit for Denali models, and might require you trim the fascia in order for the receiver tube to pass through. If you live in a state where a front plate is required, you'll need a # 5443 front plate relocation bracket. The Curt model will install with the receiver tube exiting lower on the front fascia, below the license plate, so less cutting...
