Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Toyota Tacoma

Today on this 2015 Toyota Tacoma, we're gonna review and install the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 65070. Now, this being a front mounted hitch, this is actually designed and intended for all winch mounting applications. You'll notice on the hitch itself, it's got two loops here for your hooks to come back from your pulley when you're winching your truck out of a situation. It does have a trailing application as well. A lot of times, you have a boat trailer or any type of trailer that you need to maneuver in a tight situation constantly, like for storage, use a hitch to steer it into place instead of backing it in.This does use a standard two-inch opening. It has a hitch pin hole here for your 5/8ths diameter hitch pin or your favorite locking hitch pin.





Toyota Tacoma Front Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Do all Front Hitches for 2019 Toyota Tacoma have Tow Hooks in Front
  • For your 2019 Toyota Tacoma the only front hitches we offer are ones that have tow hooks on them like the Curt # C31075 that you referenced. A better option may be the Draw Tite part # 65070 as it's tow hooks are a bit more minimized. I attached a picture for you to check out that shows the hitch installed.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Recommendation for a 2019 Toyota Tacoma
  • I recommend using the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65070 for your 2019 Toyota Tacoma because it has the highest weight ratings which indicates a stronger hitch. This has a 2" receiver and is a custom fit so it doesn't require drilling into your frame like some front mount trailer hitches do. Please note that the front air dam will have to be removed and remain off the vehicle and the splash guard will need to be trimmed. The skid shield will be removed for hitch installation...

  • I do have both front mount hitch and grille guard options for your 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road but as you mentioned they cannot be used together and I am not aware of any grille guards that have an integrated receiver tube. Therefore, you will need to choose between a front mount hitch or grille guard for your Toyota Tacoma.

  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • If it were me, I would go with the Draw-Tite front mounted hitch # 65070 over the Curt front mount hitch # 31313 for your 2015 Toyota Tacoma. We have just had better luck with the Draw-Tite brand and for the increased vertical pull, if you ever decide to use it for another purpose plus the lower cost the Draw-Tite is pretty hard to pass up in my opinion. I have linked both front mount hitches to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.

In order to install the Curt # 31313 front hitch on your 2014 Toyota Tacoma, the bumper beam end caps and the front skid shield would need to be permanently removed.

  • Both the Curt Front Hitch # 31313 and the Draw-Tite Front Hitch # 65070 are confirmed to fit your 2014 Tacoma 4x4 but I definitely recommend the Draw-Tite for its higher 500-lb vertical load weight rating and because it allows re-installation of the skid shield which is not possible with the Curt. If you're intending to use a hitch-mount snow plow like the Detail K2 Avalanche # K2AVAL8219 or a hitch cargo carrier like # 63153 or any other potentially heavy item you might want to consider...

Take a look at the picture of the hitch installed that I have included to get an idea of how much space there is after installation.

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2009 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Draw Tite trailer hitch part # 65070 is a fit for your 2009 Toyota Tacoma and has a 500 lb vertical load limit. You'd have 125 lbs left for the weight of a carrier once you subtract the weight of your KLX 250 that weighs 375 lbs. While that shouldn't be a problem you'll also have to consider that your radiator won't be getting as much air flow and your headlights and front blinkers might be obscured.

  • The Curt Front Mount Hitch # 31313 being able to accommodate your dirt bike will really depend on the weight of the bike.

Many of the motorcycle/dirt bike carriers that we sell are recommend to be used with a trailer hitch that has a max tongue weight of greater than 500 pounds. The only one that allows use with a lower rated hitch is the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201....

Then for a platform rack designed for the heavier E-bike I'd recommend the Hollywood Racks bike rack part # HR1450E which has a capacity of 80 lbs per bike.
