CURT front mount trailer hitches allow you to use the front end of your vehicle for various towing applications. They can be used for mounting a winch, a snow plow, a number of hitch-mounted accessories and can even be used for some towing applications. When space is limited, a front hitch is commonly used to hold a cargo carrier, freeing up space inside the vehicle for extra cargo and making the rear mount receiver available to pull a trailer. At the boat ramp, your boat trailer can be hitched up to the front hitch receiver, giving you better control over the trailer as you launch. Some of the other accessories that can be used with a front mount hitch are the CURT step pad, license plate holder, spare tire mount and skid shield.
A front mount hitch bolts onto the underside of the vehicle frame just like a rear mount hitch; only, it is placed in the front of the vehicle, providing a useful receiver tube to accept a 2" x 2" shank. They are commonly used on trucks, vans and SUVs. This CURT front mount trailer hitch features a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Jeep Liberty (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.
At CURT, we do not see our front receiver hitches as a backburner item to our rear mount hitches. We back them up with a one-year finish warranty and limited lifetime warranty to give you peace of mind on and off the road.

Nice Hitch - But...
This is a nice front hitch for a Jeep Liberty, and with a little more attention to detail, it could be a GREAT front hitch for a Jeep Liberty. Unfortunately, parts had to be modified to make the hitch install properly. Parts had to be added to make the hitch install properly. Instructions had to be modified to make the hitch install properly. After all that - the receiver pin hole sits 2" too far back for the hitch to be used with a Warn Winch Multi-Mount plate! (This is what most guys and gals want a front receiver mount for...!) Oh yeah - 30 minutes to install this hitch on a stone stock 2002 Liberty Limited - No Way! Try 6 hours with a great tool support system behind you, and a trip to the local hardware store! The hitch is beautifully made, though! Ugh!
