Trailer Hitch Installation - 2003 Chevrolet Silverado - Curt

Today on our 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500, we'll be installing the Curt Front Mounted Hitch, part number 31108. Here's what our hitch will look like once installed. Next, we'll give you a couple of measurements to assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch, such as a snowplow, front mounted cargo carrier, or a wench. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the front edge of our bumper is 6 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 12 inches. We'll now go ahead with the installation. To begin our install, we'll first need to remove the manufacturer's tow hooks. To do that, there are 3 fasteners for each, one on each side of the tow hook, and the rear fastener here at the bottom. As we remove the tow hook fasteners, we'll go ahead and set them aside as they will not be reinstalled, but we will reuse the manufacturer's tow hook. We'll go ahead and put the tow hook back in place over the attachment points.

Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on this 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Heavy Duty we are going to be installing front mount hitch part number 31109 from Curt. We are here looking at the passenger side frame rail. And you can see from the bottom we have got an existing bolt, an existing access hole, and then an existing regular sized hole as well. We are going to be fishing through the carried bolt block through this hole. We are going to pull it down into position using the fish wire that is provided with the installation kit. We are also going to be using this larger bolt here on the side of the frame. We are going to be removing it and replacing it with the new one that is provided in the installation kit. That is going to provide our vertical attachment point for the trailer hitch.

This contact over time will wear on the air dam, so you may decide to trim it a bit before installation of the hitch. Otherwise the hitch install is a direct bolt on installation with no drilling required. My recommendation...
